It’s back to the PC Zone scans again with issue 27 from June 1995. The highlight this month is Full Throttle but the cover review is Star Trek A Final Unity which is yet another one of those games I’ve been meaning to play ever since it first came out but still haven’t got around to. One of these days…
At any rate, the magazine is as ever in with the rest that are scanned so far at http://www.pixsoriginadventures.co.uk/PCZone/. I don’t have the cover disk for this one but I have gone back and added missing CD’s for a couple of the other issues.
You get two more PC Zone’s for the collection this week to make up for the fact that I won’t have chance to do one next week. Loads of classic games are covered including Command & Conquer, Jagged Alliance, Fade To Black and Mechwarrior 2. I’ve seen Fade to Black panned repeatedly in recent years as the unworthy sequel to Flashback but it was actually well received at the time. I’ve also uploaded the cover CD for issue 29 which had been missing before. They are all in the usual place at http://www.pixsoriginadventures.co.uk/PCZone
This weeks PC Zone is issue #32 from November 1995. It must have been a good month as there are loads of high scoring games reviewed, some of which I know well but most I’ve never played. The standout games for me include Magic Carpet 2 and Burn Cycle which I expected them to hate but on this occasion they actually liked an FMV game. The novelty mustn’t have worn off by this point.

I’m plugging another gap in the PC Zone scans with issue 48 from March 1997. The headline review is Ecstatica II which seems strange in a month that also features Diablo. I know which one is better remembered now (even if I would rather play Ecstatica myself). There’s not much else I’ve actually played in this other than Phantasmagoria 2 which was great fun for a fan of cheesy 80’s horror like myself.

I wanted a nice, short magazine to scan so this week’s PC Zone is Issue 30 from September 1995. The highlight for me is the preview of The Darkening but I’ve no doubt already posted that on here. You also get reviews of Simon The Sorcerer 2, Space Quest 6, Dungeon Master 2 and Terminal Velocity. I’ll resume the normal order next week when hopefully I should have a bit more time.
