The team finally got their first hands on Smash Bros Melee this issue, as the US version scored 95%. Once again it was a good month for reviews, with Tony Hawk’s 3 scoring 93% and another 4 games getting over 70%. Mario Advance 2 (aka Mario World) and Golden Sun were also reviewed in Planet Game Boy.

They also got a chance to have a good look at Turok Evolution, with a full dig into the ins and outs of the game. They also looked a bit more in depth at Starfox Adventures and Animal Forest +. The UK launch of the Gamecube was still unknown, with the team trying to guess the date it would be launched.

They also discussed how they thought the GBA-GC link-up would work in the future, with the team guessing as to the practical applications of the link between them. Turok: Dinosaur Hunter was the game that they looked at the making of, and they looked at real world locations within games.
