Don't be fooled by the nice looking light brown pen case, it's ink is so dark you will think you are looking at a Nigerian person.

5.0 out of 5 stars great game now that its patched, 11 Dec. 2013
this is a game I have enjoyed a lot, and still am as I write this. the many patches have improved the game so so much. I enjoy everything about the game, turn based combat, building many different kinds of buildings, the story line, the graphics and sound, the role playing element, it just entertains me a lot and I think about it when im not playing it. there is some great dlc available for it aswell, which of what ive played of it so far, is a fantastic addition to the game. I thank all the people involved in the making of this game, as it really has made me feel like I am a gangster. HEY! GET OUT OF MY TOWN, YOU DIRTY RAT.

5.0 out of 5 stars surprisingly good, 18 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
after reading all the reviews, on the websites, and here on amazon, i thought this game would be no good.
anyway i bought it from xbox live, and i'm glad i did. ok, it is a bit short in length, and there was 1 minor bug i noticed, but the game is really entertaining.
i do like super hero games, so that helps. the game reminds me of ultimate alliance 2, which i loved to the max.
you choose one of three newbie xmen, and choose one of 3 different abilities and your difficulty level, then you begin the game.
i won't tell you the story, which i thought was good, and soon you meet loads and loads of familiar xmen. you talk to them, fight with or against them, or do side quests for/with them.
there are collectable icons to find, which unlock xmen pictures and bios. also x-gene icons aswell, which unlock many costumes and abilities for your chosen character.
the action is tense, especially the boss fights. replayability is very good, as there is at least 3 difficulty levels, plus 3 different playable newbie xmen to use.
also, you should want to try all the different abilities over some time. the graphics and sound are good enough i thought.
i love this game, and look forward to continuing, at a higher difficulty level, using my same character, which is now highly upgraded from the easy difficulty level game i just completed. this game has made me like the xmen more than i did in the past. roll on a sequal.

5.0 out of 5 stars tropico heaven, 27 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tropico 4 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
having played both tropico 3 and tropico 4, i can honestly say that tropico 4 is much better. a long story driven campaign, a very good sandbox mode, 5 challenges. great download content available from xbox live. good graphics. there are many many improvements in gameplay, that make playing it so much better. i liked it so much i bought all the available download content from xbox live. these include a full expansion pack called modern times, 3 seperate extra missions and 3 new maps to use during sandbox mode. i love this game it is awsome to chill out with. roll on tropico 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars much better, 30 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this game is much better than the older version, 12 new characters, tweaked gameplay and a free download from xbox live, that gives you a new game mode. i like the fact that there is many difficulty settings to select, ensuring that even novices can enjoy the game. the graphics are lovely, the sound effects are great. you choose 3 characters, either from the capcom crew or the marvel lot, then fight it out against 3 enemies in a tag team battle. the winner being the last team to survive, or the team with the most health at the end of time, ( if time limit is set ). you can tweak the options so that the battles take longer or shorter, turn off time or set it to last a short time. the new game mode called heroes and heralds, what you must download freely, from xbox live, involves winning cards which give different bonuses, these cards are pictures of other marvel characters not found in the retail game. there are 100 to collect i do believe. i don't play online games, but this new version allows you to watch others fight online if you wish to. the characters ive played as, all have cool moves to master. be warned though beating galactus is tough even on the easiest setting, until you learn how to beat him. i'm right into super hero games at the moment, and i had to buy this and i'm glad i did. other super hero games i recommend are.. mortal combat vs dc universe, ultimate alliance 1 + 2 and the 2 batman games arkham asylum and arkham city.

5.0 out of 5 stars hail paradox, 25 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i bought this game because 1. its a paradox game, and they are awsome complex games. and 2. the many thourough reviews i read about it made me want to challenge myself to be able to play it. you see this game is in my opinion, the most complex strategy game available. this opinion of mine is based purely on the many reviews i have read about the game. i have yet to knuckle down and attempt to master this monster strategy title. you should have guessed i like big complex strategy games, and this is the daddy of them all. the game is sure to be similar to other paradox games, which are pure fun, but this one seems to be ultra complex. its set in the year 2020 so the game will include futuristic weapons, politics and global warming hazards, not to forget trading and diplomacy as well. i hope i dont get frustrated like many others did when attempting to play this game. if all goes well i think this could be my dream game. i will update you on how i get on later. other paradox games ive played and highly recommend are - europa universalis 3 and all its expansion packs, rome vae victus, victoria 2 and hearts of iron 3. other strategy games worth trying are any of the total war games like rome, medieval 2, empire, and shogun 2. civilization 5 is very good as well. so is galactic civilizations 2 endless universe. i also enjoyed heroes of might and magic 5 plus elemental war of magic. paradox games are the best though for there depth and realism.

5.0 out of 5 stars god sent strategy game, 15 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rulers of Nations (PC CD) (CD-ROM)
wow what a game, i have played strategy war games for ten years, both real time and turn based. but finally i have found rulers of nations 2, i must say this is the most pleasure i've had from strategy games. the game has been patched quite a bit since release, but i think it still needs further patching ( not 100% sure ) . i just love it, i hope it gets expanded well. no other stategy game i've played is so complex and exciting as rulers of nations 2, no other strategy game i've played is so interesting and realistic as rulers of nations 2. if you want to be a present day ruler, leading your chosen country from 2011 a.d and beyond, then buy this awsome game quickly. GAME REVIEW UPDATE - well after further hours at this game i would like to add, as the british prime minister, i tried to invade and takeover a few african countries for their resources. but country by country i was punished by the other leaders and the organizations like the united nations. first i was kicked out of the world trade organization, then the international criminal court of justice, finally after ignoring major advice not to takeover nigeria, i was sacked as prime minister and the game ended. this left me feeling disapointed, as i wanted to carry on conquering africa. the game is so realistic it is hard to stay in power if your a warmonger. but fortunately there is a way to warmonger, if you send your mi6 agents to spy politically on contries. if they dig up a scandal, and the u.n judges them to be a threat to world peace, it is possible to win a u.n vote to allow you to use military force against them. well i thought you should know the above in case like me you go for conquest quickly and get sacked and disapointed like i did. must say the game is still awsome and there is a lot of things i have not experienced yet, like spying on my own cabinet members, winning or losing an election and much more. the game is a real time strategy game, but you can set the game to be so slow, if you wish, you will think it is a turn based strategy game. anytime the game is running too slow for you, you can go forward one day in a flash by clicking on the calender.

5.0 out of 5 stars the way forward with CGI, 29 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
spiderman is amazing, but even more so in this modern animation collection. it looks beautiful and i cant wait for other super hero cartoons to be made like this fantastic animated series. CGI forever.. oh yeh the 13 episodes are all very entertaining and i will watch many times again in the future. i hope they make and release a second series. only five stars from me. mind you i never read the comics, so im not sure if the series follows them or not. buy this dvd, and see cartoons how they should look.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looking Good, 15 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Victoria 2 (PC DVD) (CD-ROM)
I have only played the demo of this game and I think it is looking good. A new patch has been released, and it must make the game much better. I am going to buy it shortly as I love strategy games. It is a real time strategy game, but you can pause the game anytime by pressing the space bar. To me this makes it more like a turn based strategy game, which is what I prefer. I like it a lot because there is so much to do and many stats to read. one thing i dont like at the moment is how certain governments allow capitalists to build railroads and factories by themselves. i think it should be the players choice to build them if choosing to. but it does help in managing a big country, and you can change governments, usually, so the capitalists cant do that on their own. if this sounds confusing let me explain. the game gives you a dozen or so different people to manage, like farmers, clerks, soldiers and capitalists etc. you make sure there kept happy and employed or they can rebel. certain goverments in control can allow capitalists to build factories and railroads on their choosing. while other governments dont allow them to. it is a grand strategy game that has taken me days to get the rules understood, thanks to a great tutorial in the game. the demo only allows you to play as the united states, and you cant save your progress. so i look forward to the full game, where i can choose a smaller and easier country to manage. the graphics are the best ive seen for a paradox title. the menu system is pretty and easy to use. gameplay involves taking a country through 100 years and doing whatever pleases you, there are some in game achievments to do, and i think your score after the 100 years comes into it. im not sure if you can play on once the 100 years is up. theres diplomacy, trade, production, warfare, research and politics to master. so far i think 4 stars is ok, it probably will turn out to be 5 stars when i play the full game, as this is my type of game i like.

4.0 out of 5 stars dodgy sound levels, 20 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Love Me Forever (Audio CD)
firstly this cd is probably the most sweetest, holiest and mellow sounding studio one cd your ever likely to hear. sadlly someone recorded it with dodgy sound levels, the first few tracks play, then the next one drops in sound level. this happens throughout the whole cd, one track is recorded at such a low level that you had better not forget you turned your volume way up, or when the next track plays, your likely to blow your speakers up. such a shame as this is the best of studio one in my opinion, i deducted 1 star because of the recording level problem. but the quality of the music on the cd overall merits 4 stars easily.
