Coverdisk Archive – PC Review

Posted on October 13th, 2016

I don’t remember too much about PC Review and indeed can’t find anything on it past 1992 (archive.org/details/pcreviewmagazine) which was before I started to read it. From what I remember it disappeared mid decade. I think it failed to find its identity (and audience); in the early to mid 90s the newsagents where awash with PC magazines and the market was reaching saturation.

Although looking at the disk listing for February 1994 (Doom!) the volume is called “WPCG_COV1”; WPCG being shorthand for “What PC Games”. This was a short lived magazine that appeared around the same time. I’m guessing that was a failed attempt at a re-brand or sister magazine with better circulation.

Don’t forget to check out the other magazine coverdisk archives.
