5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Buy, 28 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After completing the franchise and getting rid of the games, I sold my Xbox. After 6 months I brought another one and back gaming. I knew I had to play them again and this seemed like the perfect collectors edition to have and it is brilliant. All dlcs, art posters which look stunning on card and a great metallic box which the games are encased in. Now the franchise, if you have played some of the games but missed the first one I would suggested missing it, however if you have never played the franchise then this is a great buy and I would recommended playing the first game (a bit of a ball ache) however this will mean you will get the story told through out the games and you realize just how amazing the mechanics become and evolve through the games.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, neccessary, but annoying, 28 Oct 2013

This is a good buy if you want picture and sound quality, but feel cheated that Xbox have decided to put a plastic piece on the console make you buy the extra gear required for the Xbox 360.

Necessary but annoying !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Why have i just got this!, 28 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After buying this I now wonder now after several years of owning my Xbox why I get a HDMI now. Sound quality isn't an issue as I have x11 turtle beaches but the picture quality is amazing. I was playing splinter cell blacklist and was disappointed as going into dark places meant I couldn't see anything, a major problem in a stealth game, my brightness was turned right up and still no luck. After putting this HDMI cable in I couldn't believe the difference I then had a job turning my brightness down. Great buy highly recommended

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use this company for my Xbox 360 as it has broken down a few times and had to end up getting a replacement and although I haven't used the company yet it is a great company for piece of mind. The details where delivered quick and effectively and it was simple and easy to set up. Very Pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hitman, game hit, 27 May 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Hitman, a game of patience, tactics, adaptability and survival. However if you have never been a fan of the hitman series because of there difficulty fear not this latest game caters for the call of duty, splinter cell conviction players out there. As agent 47 you're a man who has no name just a number and has spent all his life learning to kill with guns, knifes (and in this game) plungers, that's right PLUNGERS. You start the game by taking out the woman who all ways gave you your assignment in the previous games Diana as she has turned against the agency, in a well scripted plot agent 47 unravels the true and is fighting 'the organisation' (the people who trained him) and a devious unlike able character who has taken a girl who your have sworn to protect. In essence this makes sense as the game is called absolution and its great to see some emotion and dilect in agent 47 which we have missed in previous games. For the die hard hitman players you won't be disappointed the game has 5 difficulty setting and the hardest of setting disables most of the new features which makes the game an original setting to the previous series. But if you are new to the franchise and the precise and slow gameplay has put you off do not fear, the are some new mechanics which can make the game very enjoyable. One new mechanic is point shooting, this is where time is slowed down a you can place a red mark on an enemy's head, one button push and time speeds back up and all of the marked enemy's die instantly. This has to be earned through a meter which can be filled from killing dumping bodies and meeting objectives. The game also has a contracts game style in which you can completed an objective created by other players and you can also do the same. Overall the story narrative is well written and gameay is superb, contracts makes you replay the game and its also customisable. Some missions can be restricting but this is a small cog in a big machine.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great reboot, 27 May 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
If your a fan of the series or (for some unknown reason) a beginner of Lara's adventures this game is defiantly worth playing. Tomb raider is unlike the other games as the hard exterior of the british action hero will not be found here (for at least for 90% of the game anyway). The game offers a great story line which is incredibly well written, with amazing voice acting. However the amazing game mechanics, the unique environment, and modern customisation and upgradeable abilities does have some down sides. Without giving the plot away the time between Lara being besotted at her first kill to killing men by thrusting arrows through there knee caps are almost instant and this is understandable but does take you away from the submersible atmosphere for a short while. The major disappointment with this game is multiplayer the concept works but in practice it is highly unplayable and just boring it seems the developers seem to use multiplayer because of most current gen consoles games do include some multiplayer format. Finally there is replayability if your like me and want all the extras and collectables in the game then you should buy this game right now, seriously buy it there are tons of collectables and side missions with mini puzzles and hard brain teasers.
To conclude if your a fan of the series you'll love it, if your not then you will love it even more. Multiplayer is a down side but not a reason to not buy the game.

These cards are my first as I have just started out and for pros and beginners these cards are great they offer great suitability to any magicians hand. The cards are also very artistic and the beautiful design is one of the best I have seen in any deck of cards. I recommend these's cards to anyone interested in cards or magic.
