Today we're taking a look at Sega Force, a short-lived Sega-themed magazine out of jolly ole England. This should be a straight-forward episode, but things get complicated when we discover there is more than one Sega Force. Unravel the mystery when you watch today's thrilling episode of 29 Magazines of Christmas.



Excerpt: Despite its good looks, solid writing and genuinely interesting features, Sega Force only managed to last 19 issues. In those 19 issues, the editors managed to review a total of 295 games. That's 184 Mega Drive games, 50 Game Gear, 47 Master System and 14 on Mega CD. Their top scoring game was Sonic the Hedgehog 2, which earned a 97%. Believe it or not, Taz-Mania comes in second with 96%. At 25%, The Great Waldo Search was the worst reviewed game in the magazines' history
