N64 Magazine Issue 16

June 1998
Release Date: 21 May 1998
Pages: 116
Editor: James Ashton


The big feature of Issue 16 looked at several platform games to be released in the coming months - with special looks at Gex 64 and Banjo Kazooie - one was awesome, the other not quite so awesome! There were a massive 5 games reviewed in this issue, but unfortunately it was quantity over quality this time as only Forsaken scored over 75%. Jeopardy was also reviewed on import this issue and scored an almost all time low of 9%. There was a nice feature on import converter cards in this issue, covering the pros and cons and the compatible games. James Price looked at the components of a great game in the back of the mag feature.
