5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding album, the band have out done themselves again!, 24 Mar. 2007
This review is from: The Heart Of Everything (Audio CD)
Wow what can i say, after listening to Silent force i was very impressed with the sound and presence wt had created, and seeing them at download festival last year really made me realise this is one hell of a band.

Receiving heart of everything which i also got a personally signed leaftlet from the band, they only signed 4000 of these and were only avaiable in the UK and only through certain shops.

I put the cd in and away i went the album is awesome, personally i think alot heavier than Silent force, Frozen, All i need, the cross are my favourite tracks but to be honest i could listen to this album all the way through no worries.

The band have definately out done themselves and this album deserves all the praise its receiving i personally think it could be in contender for being one of the best albums of 2007.

The band have been compared the Evanscence with is not true, not the mention WT were around years before Evanscence came onto the scene, true the bands both have small similarities, with the heart of everything i also hear abit of nightwish, its all thrown in there but produced in WT own style which makes it unique!!

Please check WT out they are touring the UK next month from 10th -14th april and they have also been confirmed for DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL 2007!!! don't miss out, even if your not a fan WT are worthy enough to have a peep at.

4.0 out of 5 stars Samsung have finally gained my trust (again), 24 Mar. 2007
After having a not so pleasant time with a 20gb mp3 i bought which went bye bye's after 10minutes i have tried to avoid anything samsung.

But browsing in toys r us the other day i saw a mp3 player reduced from £50 to £30 of course i bought it, but not until i was on my way home did i realise i'd accidently been given the wrong model so i actually ended up with the yp-k5 which i'm not complaining about.

The player is fairly simple to use interface wise install the software, plug the baby in and away you go. Once connected the samsung software automatically starts which to be honest annoyed me and was a pain to use, so instead i went through "my computer" and put my songs on via that.

The player is 2gb and can hold quite alot at the moment i have about 70 songs and the memory is still below half used i think 160 is a rough guide (depending on song size/type mp3,wma)

The sound is very crisp the headphones are comfortable and have a rubber grib which slips into your ear so you don't actually have the headphone itself digging in, which it great.

Or if your like me and you like to listen to music in the bath take the headphones off slide the speaker out and bobs your uncle, again the sound is very crisp and actually goes very aloud especially for a mp3 player and with extra bass for all metal heads its a blast.

The touchscreen interface is also nice but maybe a bit tender and only needs a slight push to change track etc..

I should also mention the player does not come with a plug in the wall charger, instead it charges via the usb port on your comp which is ok and takes approx 4 hours to charge. Playback time is supposed to be 30 hours but to be honest i have got it to about 15hours before the bars on the battery drop, but to be fair its new i've only charged it once, so it maybe require more charging.

Overall its a great player, and i'm not arguing especially the price i paid for it. I'd definately buy one but maybe wait for the price plunge.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kane = Gore fest, 24 Mar. 2007
This review is from: See No Evil [DVD] (DVD)
Gotta say i found this film very watchable good storyline different from the usual horror film. Convicts are sent into a so called abandoned hotel to do some cleaning and restoration work when each of the criminals start to dissapear and find themselves being hunted by a smart and well planned killer.

There is plenty of gore and sometimes even i have to admit maybe too much, like the director was maybe trying too hard to freak you out, none the less makes for good viewing.

Also having Kane as the aggressive eye hunting killer works great the big built giant, who actually looks kinda scary.

Recommend viewing, theres also a decent ending but i won't ruin that for you, check it out!

4.0 out of 5 stars Gruesome and i loved it !, 24 Mar. 2007
Gotta say i wasn't expecting much from this film but i was pleasantly suprised. The film takes a while to kick in and yes it may be a tad predictable, but theres plenty of blood and guts to keep ya going.

Few issues i found disturbing with the film was the fact i'm a animal lover and i didn't appreciate a mutant ripping a birds head off and drinking the blood, and as another amazon member has already said the rape scene, it doesn't prove anything its quite graphic and not needed. If it wasn't for that scene the film may have got a 5 star.

On the whole a dark film watchable, but not the sort of film i could watch over and over as i tend to do with horror films, but i would definately check it out.... now i'm waiting for the sequel.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why do people rave about this film?, 24 Mar. 2007
I watched this film excepting big things, scares, n plenty of blood and guts.

This film was just boring exactly the same principle as the prequel, young people getting stuck in a deserted waste land with no one to help.

I fell asleep watching this film major dissapointment would not recommend watching would try wolfcreek, reeker or see no evil.

4.0 out of 5 stars Addictive oh yes!!!, 20 Feb. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pharaoh Gold (PC CD) (Video Game)
As a small girl the mysteries of ancient Egypt have always facinated me, i saw pharaoh on my brothers demo disc yeas ago and loved playing it the only problem was i couldn't save it, so when my brother bought me the game for christmas i was so pleased.

Pharaoh is a very very addictive game you control aspects of everything from, supplying food, entertainment, health / reglious facilties, keeping the gods happy etc... the list goes on and on also you build big bitching moments and tombs.

The graphic's may look dated now but it is still a very entertaining game which will keep you going for hours, and the cleopatra expansion pack is awesome you can actually build tombs in the valley of the kings.

will worth a look, i'm off to play.

4.0 out of 5 stars "OH NO" lemmings are back, AND ITS GREAT!, 26 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Lemmings (PS2) (Video Game)
Its good to see how far lemmings have come since the days of the megadrive and other retro consoles. i bought lemmings on a wim really, i just thought why not most lemmings games are good, and i wasn't dissapointed.

Graphics are really nice and crisp the background detail is great on the Egyptian levels you actually feel like you can put your hand in the screen and grab a pillar very impressive.

controls are very easy to use instead of panicing to highlight the tool you want to use with the direction stick simply press L1/R1, and you can they scroll through what you want to use.

my only complaint is that alot of the music that made lemmings such a weird and enjoyable game has gone, don't get me wrong there's still some in there but the new music can get tedious and you seem to find yourself slowly turning the volume down on your tv, if it wasn't for the music the game would of got 5 stars for sure!

Another great feature of lemmings is you can upload/download levels on the net through your ps2 depending on if you have a network adaptor etc.. and if you have a eye toy you can actually copy yourself onto the game create you own level, and paste yourself into the game meaning the lemmings can actually walk across you, although i haven't tested this feature as i don't have a eye toy.

Overall lemmings is still as addictive as ever and with over 150 levels you will be occupied for a long time, and its a great family game. If you a lemmings fan or a stratergy fanatic your'll love this game. Go buy!

3.0 out of 5 stars Watchable but could of been better, 26 Nov. 2006
After the recent spell of good animation films i thought i'd give hoodwinked a shot. basic story line all the shops/traders in the forest (based on lil red riding hood remember) are closing as someone is stealing receipes to create their own business (don't worry won't tell ya who) lil red, wolf and other characters team up to uncover the truth.

Has some really funny moments like a squirrel on or a yodelling goat, overall it was a ok but compared to films such as robots or madagasca (sorry can't spell) it just doesn't seem to have that edge, for 30mins you are sitting watching the screen waiting for a joke/gag to happen.

recommend seeing it at cinema

2.0 out of 5 stars Good laugh but doesn't deliver, 16 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Family Guy (PS2) (Video Game)
i bought this game along side family guy series 5( which for the record is terrible) i was looking forward to playing the game as a fan and gamer,but overall i'm not impressed.

yes there are funny bits example running through showers at the police station with homosexual people washing each other, or dodging electrocution as death decides to have some fun in the hosptial.

the controls aren't brillant, i find trying to perform double jumps with stewie is a pain and tedious, and the camera angles are pants moving the camera stick doesn't do much at all.

the graphics are ok but nothing to get excited over. at the moment i'm only on the police level as i can't stand playing for long periods of time, otherwise the controller will land in my tv screen, as the game can be extremely annoying.

futurama and simpsons hit and run are definately better quality games, i suggest if you are a cartoon fan try one of these, or at the very most rent family guy the game.

1.0 out of 5 stars NO NO NO NO NO!!!, 30 May 2006
This player is so bad i don't know where to start. the people that have written good reviews about this product must of had a player outta the good stock.

many people have already mentioned about the software being a pain to use personally the napster software is fine to use its really simple but u do have to sign up but its free unless you download. u can also use windows media player i tried and gave up its a nightmare. even though i have the most updated version it still sucks especially if you computer has a basic ubs port and not the 2.0 as required.
oh and the driver conflicts with windows xp big style.

Anyway after 4hours of putting songs on the player with napster which was really easy to do, i used the player for 10minutes. it froze up, switched off and crashed the player is no longer reading the hdd.

So what do you do? follow the instructions right? i read to use the recovery ultilies except they don't work coz i can't get on it coz i soon as i connect the player to the computer the player freezes my computer up. i've also tried it on my laptop and i still have the same problem. so i can't repair it or format it. i'm now stuck with it. i bought it off ebay so its not as if i can take it back to the shop.
