Tins
Tins
by Alex Shearer
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars The start is dull. The rest is brilliant!, 2 Mar 2008
This review is from: Tins (Paperback)
I found the beginning of the book quite dull, but it isn't too long before the greatness of it starts. It's about a boy called Fergal who collects tins. Nothing special about the tins he collects, he just likes to. As you may be able to guess, his parents aren't too keen on this 'hobby' so plea him to give it up. Reluctantly, he says he will, after he buys one last tin...

Due to the fact this will he the last tin he buys, he wants it to be a special one, one that is different from all others. Eventually he finds one he knows must be special, one that rattles. A tin that rattles? What could be in it? Fergal finds out soon enough, and it leads him into an unforgettable adventure!

1.0 out of 5 stars Words can not describe how bad this is! But I'm gonna try anyway., 21 Feb 2008
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Quite simply, this game is awful. Wanna know why? How long have you got? Actually, it wont take that long for me to describe, all I need to say is "The mini games are crap." and thats about all there is for me to say about it. There's nothing else bad about the game, but only because the mini games are all there is to the game. Avoid, under all circumstances.

1.0 out of 5 stars RPG for kids? More like RPG for idiots., 21 Feb 2008
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Falling Stars (PS2) (Video Game)
OK, It's understood that this had to be easier as it's specially made for kids, but this one really takes the mick. It's too simple, even for children! This is really an insult to kids as it treats them like complete idiots. KIDS ARE NOT STUPID! If you want a child friendly game, get something like Super Monkey Ball, as it is suitable for children without treating them like idiots.

5.0 out of 5 stars 42 All Time Classics - The best way of describing it is in the title., 21 Aug 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This is everything that 'Sega Casino' wanted to be, and more! This isn't the only game which claims to have 'something for everyone' but it IS one of the only games which is telling the truth in saying that. I started being the only who played it, then my friend started playing Snooker, my mum started playing some card games, my dad started playing the backgammon game, and my sister played loads of them. I didn't even have to teach them the controls as it's all touch screen based. Yup, thats right, you can play the whole game without pressing any buttons (except for the on/off button of course). So, you touch the dice to roll it, touch the your pieces to move them, touch your cards to play them etc.. So, if you pick this up, you can either start playing your favourites, or learn some new ones, which won't be hard at all due to the extremely detailed instructions that can be accesed at any time during a game. Buy this NOW!

+ 42 Great games on one card

+ And multiplayer makes it even more fun

+ Instructions for games with detail beyond imagination

+ A budget price which isn't even nessecary

- The controls for some games such as Billiards take some getting used to

4.0 out of 5 stars More Brain Training is More fun, 21 Aug 2007
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
I certainly found the games in the sequel much more fun than that of the original. The original games did train your brain and were quite addictive, but in my opinion, that was for the sake of getting the highest score which many people wanted to do. However, the games in the second one are addicitive purely because they're more fun. It even includes an extra game which relaxes your brain, rather then training it, which I must say is the most addictive. Buy it and you'll be playing it for days, trying to get a brain age of 20. Basically if you enjoyed the first one, buy this. If you haven't got either but plan on getting one of them, get this one.

+ Fun games which train your brain.

+ And as if that wasn't enough, there's also 100 Sudoku puzzles.

+ Budget price of 20 pounds which is more than good value.

- Exactly the same layout as the first game.

- Some mini games are a bit boring.
