Does anyone know what scores 3DO magazine (UK) gave Luciennes Quest and Olympic Summer Games?

Thanks

Thanks
Olympic Summer Games got 4 out of 5 stars in a nice 4 page review which covered every event. I really like the game.

I think Luciennes Quest got the same score, but I'm going off memory since I don't have that issue. :( I think there is a scan of the LQ review somewhere in the forums.
Most wanted - Eye of Typhoon, 3DO Magazines issues #14 & #15, Pro Stadium, Defcon 5

Thanks Trev. I found scans of issues 10 & 12 on the net, good read. I enjoyed the review summary at the end of the issues detailing what score each game received upon release.

3DO Magazine had the most eclectic scoring of any magazine.

So, I just checked, LQ got 4 out of 5. It deserves 5/5 in my book. Everyone got hot under the collar for FFVII which is awesome, but LQ the year before FFVII is pretty amazing.

Olympic Summer Games? Am i getting my games confused? It's not reviewed is it?

It's on the cover of 3DO Magazine issue 12, and has a 4 page review in issue 13.

It got back to back covers. Poor 3DO hardly had any new releases by that point. :(
