Edge Arcade Reviews Nov. 1998

November 30, 2007

For those of you that remember, a few weeks back I posted up some scans of an Edge arcade article from way back in 1998. Also something I notice was that way back then Edge used to do arcade reviews (how times have changed). So as promised here is the first, of many, of thier arcade reviews. First up are reviews of Dirt Devils, Tetris & Ocean Hunter. Also in this issue was a round up of JAMMA ’98. Enjoy.

Apologies for the quality but I couldn’t post up the 15MB plus scans as they would take a month of Sunday’s to load.

Don’t forget to check out Edge’s website, let me know if there’s any arcade news on there.

Insert Coins To Continue – Edge Arcade Article – Nov ’98

I was rooting through all my old issues of Edge’s this week and came across this great article about the arcade industry in the late nineties. This was also the period when Edge covered arcades a hell of a lot more than they do today. They even had a review section just for arcade games! Granted it was only two pages, but to be fair there are less arcade games out there than console ones.

Just click on the thumbnails to enlarge the scans and read away. I will be going through all my Edges now and finding all I can on arcades. Think of it as our retro look back, except it’s not ours, it’s Edge’s! (better link to them twice seeing as they done all the work 🙂 )
