-Written pretty darn well
-A little short
-Spel chek plz
Since I live in Canada, this is one of the few paintball magazines that actual can be bought up here without special order (or in my area anyway)
The thing that I notice most about the magazine is that the quality of the photos are amazing! Crystal clear action shots!! The reviews they have are pretty good and they vary between 2 and 3 review per magazine.
They have other colums like the Gun Doctor and All the majour tournaments are covered, from 7 man to the big scenario games!!
The only thing I noticed sometimes was that they had some pretty bad errors in the text. if they spent a couple of minutes looking it over with the spell check application on their computer, everything would be dandy.
If you can find this, get it and subscribe. You'll save so much money and you'll get a good quality magazine out of it. Even with the spelling, not everything can always be caught so it doesn't affect my rating. 10/10
Funny Writting, great layout, fantasic photography
Since I work for PGI, this review will sound a little biased. This is the cream of the crop. One comment was noted that this is the "Sports Ilustrated of paintball". Very True. Funny writting, superb layout, fantastic photography (which I have a hand in). All in all, #1 in my book.
This is the benchmark to which other magazines should follow. In my book it goes,
2- Facefull & P8nt
-it doesnt always talk about the US
-it has attitude
-well written articles
-awesome tips for playing any kind of paintball
-not long enough
I enjoy this magazine because it isn't biased and doesn't always talk about the United States' BS. It isn't self-centered like most other magazines. The articles are funny and give great tips from pro's in different countries not JUST the US. And for the people who complain that it is too international, why don't you stop being so ignorant about the rest of the world and clue in too events that are happening OUTSIDE the US because there is more to the world than the USA. (this includes paintball events and any other events that people disreguard in the world)

Great features, nice photography, helpful articles
Expensive and not easy to find
The articles are well done and are in typical Euro-UK style, with humor and attitude. Photography is nice and articles are helpful. It's nice to read about more than just local XSPL, PSP, and NPPL events. The Millenium coverage is great and it cool to hear about paintball around the world. If it wasn't so much money to subscribe, I would have picked this up a long time ago.
Great magazine. Hard to find and costs more than most. But considering it's an import, great bang for the buck.

Table of Contents
Pictures are OK but not amazing.
This is definitely the most factual and complex magazine. Instead of using cool ball-break pictures, these guys take tournament coverage and marker reviews to the next level. Basically, if you want to know the standings of teams, what trades have been made, and the locations and results of tourneys, look no farther.
If you would rather prefer a more picture friendly, colorful magazine, you might want to stick with PB2X.
The paper that they use to make this is pretty good, the nice slick glossy type.
The table of contents is nice, and includes everything along with pictures next to articles. Great table of contents...
The articles vary very much, so you wont be stuck with "8 New Tips for Beginners!" for 100 straight pages...Oh by the way, they don't advertise too much. When they do, the advertisements are high quality, and clear....
It is a decent length, but not thick at all.
I see very little coverage of Scenario tournaments and markers. This is definitely geared twoards the tourney player.
If you are looking for pure facts, go for this. It may be a little pricey, but its worth it. If you are a scenario player, go with PB2X. This is made totally for the tournament and more serious players....but newbies can get a kick out of it as well. EVERYTHING IS GETTING EXPOSURE.
Great Articles, Tips and Strategies, Product Reviews, Euro Coverage, Articles written by players...
Maybe could be a little longer
This is an absolutely great magazine. There are plenty of articles for any type of tourney players. Tips and strategies, product reviews, and more all writen by people at the top of the paintball world. There is also plenty of coverage of all the leauges including MILLENIUM!! This is a great magazine and without a doubt the best paintball magazine on newstands.
Anyone that is looking for a great tourney oriented magazine needs to read this magazine.

Different and funny.
None really that stand out.
This magazine is great and continues to be on my "buy" list when ever I go to the store. I would get a subscription but I dont have the money to get subscriptions to all the mags i want. the articles are funny and the whole mag offers a different point of veiw than most other mags.
This is a pretty good magazine that's pretty easy to find. It's pretty much comparable to PB2X.
Good Articles: this magazine has some great articles like their 200 Greatest Players of all time. Very good read, and covers each tournament, including smaller ones like CFOA.
Pictures: The pictures are pretty good in this magazine, but still not as good as Facefull's.
Gear: They show off new gear, in short, sweet, little section, but not as in-depth as some would like.
No Woodsball/Scenario: Unfortunately, for some of us, there's no Scenario coverage. Its not that big of a problem, but considering the quality of most info in magazines on the subject, it's a bit of a let down.
All-in-all this is a good, informative magazine. I'd reccommend it to all.

I bought this magazine from barnes and nobles the other day for the resonable price of 5.99. This magazine has many tips on haw to play paintball better and many of the people who write these stories are actual paintball players. On thing i didnt like was that the advertisments took up 1/4 of the magazine. There are also plenyt of awesonme pictures and interviews with professional paintball players
I strongly recomend this magazine for anyone who wants a paintball magazine i give it a 9 out of ten becouse i havnt read many other paintball magazines
Every other magazine - none compare, except for Facefull, but that's too expensive for me
Ir3 w/ stuff
Articles are informative and funny at the same time.
N-O-N-E...well, unless you're only into woodsball
PGI is hands-down the best paintball magazine out there. Well actually, Facefull is pretty awesome too, but it's a hundred times better than PB2X, APG, etc. The articles are creative, funny and smart at the same time. Honestly, when I read something like PB2x, I only read the articles that really interest me, because the writing is sort of...well...normal/boring. The PGI guys make anything sound interesting, so I read the whole magazine. Most of the writers are either pros or former pros, so you're getting advice from the best players in the world.
I've also found the pictures to be more creative than PB2X & the other magazine...more unique photos. Not just same old' same old'
It's fantastic! Much more entertaining to read than the other magazines.
