GamePro (April 1997)

GamePro (April 1997)

I never read GamePro much but it competed strongly with EGM throughout the 1990s. In early 1997 there were lots of systems to cover. The 32/64-bit war was at a fever pitch but the 16-bit systems were still hanging on as well. The April 1997 issue of GamePro includes:
