Thanks for posting this over here.

I'm surprised that Ocean only accounted for 71 full price reviews, less than one a month.

How many reviews

Julian Rignall 611


He definitely wins the prize for most reviews, I guess there was a lot more games to review back in the time when he was working on the magazine and he was obviously there for quite a while as well. Looks like he and Phil King were the longest serving editorial staff members.
