5.0 out of 5 stars 200 mb to save?!?!? lies!!, 6 Jan. 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
First off, i'd put off buying this game for quite a while as i don't have a hard drive, but i received it as a christmas present. So although excited, i knew i had to get a hard drive after chrsitmas, i popped it in and began to play after the first mission lo and behold i had the option to save, my heart sank as i knew it wouldn't, so tried it anyway and it saved only taking up 2mb!!!! So people dont be put off buying this excellent game because you dont have a £70 hard drive, YOU CAN SAVE. as you play through each mission you can save in game BUT without a hard drive it will only save the mission not the stage in the mission... Not too hard to live with is it?

I'm assuming that the luxury A hard drive gives you is being able to save 'in game'

anyway onto the game itself...

Any fans of Collateral will love the ability to stalk your way through casinos, Nightclubs, AA retreats even Mardi Gras!! the multitude of ways to assasinate people is unbelievable, unless you're going for Silent Assassin ratings where you have to be calculating and strategic, following the marks movements until you set a trap or 'accident' i'e sabotaging food, or dressing up as a bodyguard to walk around undetected, you can even steal the video tapes so theres no record of you ever being there. At the end of every mission you get to see the following mornings newspaper with details of the kill.

This game is brilliant!!

Can't wait for Kane and Lynch: Dead Men!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars couldn't believe it...!, 20 Oct. 2005
This review is from: Nattfodd (Audio CD)
This album just made me want to cry it was so good, a mix of brutal death metal and finnish folk music. Nobody can write an accurate review of this album as it is un-reviewable but i'll try and infuse you with my enjoyment... it just makes you feel over the top happy and you want to crack open some beer, pour it into a silver tankard and drunkenly sing along to it with some friends. imagine if TOM WAITS did a death metal album, it would sound like this. It really is good company music, i showed my girlfriend and at first she had a look on her face as if to say "what the hell have you bought" within a minute that had changed to "have you got any drink for me?" it really is that good. you get the same feeling from listening to the pogues, bombastic rythyms and charging vocals, with surprisingly melodic folk music played over it.
It is way too hard to pick out a favourite song but i'll give it a go.
1 trollhammeren - first drink.
2 ellytres - third drink
3 fiskarens fiende - ninth drink
4 nattfodd - hospital
it's only on for about 30 mins but you will be drunk by the end of it. GUARANTEED.
there is also an instrumental the like of which i have never heard before, instead of music it is the sound of trolls marching through the woods chewing their latest kill. then when you think its over an intense death metal song kicks in for a minute and it's over. THIS IS GENIUS!!! thank you finntroll, thank you. please don't eat me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterton is the best horror writer bar none..., 19 Oct. 2005
... it is true, stephen king (lets you down) clive barker(not enough output) dean koontz (getting back to his best) richard layman (predictable stories)
but Mr Masterton has never let me down and this book was a pleasure to read. Good pacing, good characters, plotting, good choice of subject matter, inventive set pieces. all in all it is one of his best. it amazes me how such a good writer only has had one of his books turned into a movie when they all cry out for adaptions.
buy this book

5.0 out of 5 stars Tom Does it again!, 19 Oct. 2004
This review is from: Real Gone (Audio CD)
i've only been a tom waits fan for just over a year. but have now amassed all his albums, biographies and films he's in (even tiny cameos) to say i'm obsessed is an understatement...
this album marks a big departure for our hero as he shuns the use of his piano for human beatboxing and samples, but to class this as hi hop is a foolish thing... the album is full of rustic blues and distorted primal sounds that give an air of 'southern gothic' something he tampered with on Mule Variations, now is brought to the surface... this album is one of his best and shows that what he now lacks (some say) in his vocals he more than makes up for with inventiveness and the willingness to experiment.
listen to 'hoist that rag' or 'dont go into that barn' to get the flavour of this new 'Waitsian' dish.
my personal favourite is trampled rose... a beautiful song bringing to mind a late night after hours blues singer, who has just written the most tender song but there's no one around to hear it...
in short buy this album if you already are a fan, if you aren't and are looking for a secret entrance to the dark cellar of his mind this is a damn good place to start...

5.0 out of 5 stars Tom does it again!!, 4 Oct. 2004
This review is from: Real Gone (Audio CD)
I have been waiting (ha ha) for ages for a new album from the god of gothic blues and i am happy to say that this ranks up as one of his best.
For the first time in his 30 year career he has shunned the piano for more typical rock instruments, but has come up with something never heard before...
From that sexual Latin flavour that pours out of Hoist that rag, to the Primal blues of Make it rain, or the cubist funk of metropolitan glide Tom once again shows that he wont be shackled by the chains of conformity. how he keeps coming up with new ideas and sounds beggars belief, he even does a bit of human beatboxing!! also his son Casey is featured on the album playing drums and manning the turntables whilst 'Dad' mans the microphone. This is a must have for fans and newcomers alike...
There is only one problem, once you have it, you'll cry out for a new album straight away because once the surreal magic of Mr Waits has gripped you you can't shake it no matter how hard you try.
I cant wait for another album, and i wish he'd play live over here more often, but hey, a genius needs time off.
Now Tom, how about releasing 'Big Time' on DVD?
