N64 Magazine Issue 24

January 1999
Release Date: 23 Dec 1998
Pages: 148
Editor: James Ashton


By the time issue 24 came around, everyone had been able to play Ocarina of Time in full, so this time got the usual massive review treatment - going into great depth about the first dungeon and looking at almost every other location in the game. Top Gear overdrive and NBA Jam ‘99 were other big hitters in terms of reviews, but they paled into insignificance compared to Zelda. The team looked at several new Mario Games this issue, including the first looks at Mario Party and Smash Bros - although at this point it had little chance of a UK release. The back of the magazine had a complete rethink, with the mailbox, guides, tips, and everything else being rebranded as Club 64 with colour coded pages - quite a good tidy up!
