This was the first issue of NGC that I'd bought in about six months - the GameCube launch almost passed me by, but I think that I scadged enough lunch money off of my folks to be able to get this magazine.
I wound up getting most of those games eventually, because the GameCube sort of flopped and my local Blockbuster ended up selling everything off for a few quid each before the year was out. As new in May 2002 though, there's lots of PS2 ports there, six months later than they originally launched, for slightly more money. Hmm. Still, a good game is a good game, and I've got fond memories of SpyHunter, Simpson's Road Rage and especially 18 Wheeler. ISS 2 can get to France though. If anyone remember's the post I typed about WWE WrestleMania X8 on the GameCube in the Crushing Disappointment thread, just copy and paste it for ISS 2.
