General Comments
Game Central isn't a magazine as such, it's more a daily dosage of quality gaming journalism delivered in bite size chunks via Channel 4 Teletext.

The 4 pages (376,377,378 and 379) are updated daily throughout the week and offer the latest news and also some surprisingly unbiased reviews. Game Central has its own brand of humour and in-jokes that only regular readers will get, but if you need a quick fix of gaming news, it's only a remote control button press away - and it's free. The major draw for many readers (including myself) is the 'Inbox' section where gamers write in with their views on the industry and other news items. During the week, readers can comment on any subject regarding games, but at the weekend the inbox section focuses on a certain 'hot topic'.

Also over the weekend, there is a round up of the week's reviews and normally a feature or two - sometimes written by an important industry figure. Gamecentral is the natural successor to the infamous Digitiser, and stands up well in the shadow of its illustrious forefather.
