1.0 out of 5 stars WEAK, 23 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought it on the Amazon deal thing for a cheap price (around £25), mainly for the size. Actually, it is big, but put a lot of things in it and it will break... and this is not the strap i'm talking about, but the bag itself. If you pay the full price, you are crazy. But I can understand that there isn't much choice when it comes to big bags.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too easy and simple, 15 Jan. 2014
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
When this game first came out I bought it straight away. Strange enough, I bought it again over a few decades later to remember the good old days (or not). As soon as I played it, I only remembered that the music at the beginning was catchy and that the rest of the game played too simple. It was far too easy and not as good as AK in Miracle World. Saying this, AK in High Tech world was so weird. Still. The actual game "Shinobi" beats this hands down! Go for that instead on any system!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Hilarious Reflective Piece, 15 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When looking at the old font of the book cover, I felt sceptical. When looking at the sample pages, I also felt unsure as I was just looking for the part on Asia. But what Barry writes about his experiences at the beginning seem and feel pretty authentic. Furthermore, he is a Londoner, like myself, and reminds me of my own friends. So reading his words are like connecting to my own friends as I never live in London, like him. When I did reach about his adventures in Asia, I was completely into it. It wasn't just the honesty, but it was the particular moments that he chose to write about. It is as though he knows what the reader wants while keeping authentic. I believe that none of his writing is based on any lying, but I would like to talk to Barry to find out how in the world he managed to write this book and keep it so coherent despite being so lagged and drunk. This book is not about that, but you have to buy it to find out. The price is cheap and if you are from London, it is a bonus to get it. You won't stop laughing. Cheers MR BARRY.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Megadrive Game Ever, 12 Jan. 2014
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
It's a turn based role-playing game. Better than the first and lasts longer. You can't go wrong buying this! The amount of characters you can use are increased and there are more secret characters. The storyline is really fun to go along with and i've gone through it more than 7 times now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great but Japanese, 12 Jan. 2014

This is a super product which I own on my mod Sat, but you need to learn to read Japanese to get the picture. The games run well and are practically as fast as the originals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice game but easy!, 11 Jan. 2014
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
It's a great game, like the original. But there is a new character who makes everything super easy. When you finish it, you can even play with him from the beginning. However, it's great. If SF2 came out, it would be better though. If SF3 came out, then it would be 10000000 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Game, 11 Jan. 2014
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Final Fantasy VI (Video Game)
If you have the original on the SNES, then you don't need this unless you want the extra FMV sequences. Personally, i prefer the original with less loading. But it still is fine to play. Is in my top 3 games of all time. Purchase it now!

1.0 out of 5 stars Expensive and just the same as the others, 11 Jan. 2014
Do not buy this book. It is too expensive. It is just the same as the rest. Once you have one, you do not need another. The price is just too high. It doesn't teach you anything. You would be better off to search online for tests or find books which have more tests at a cheaper price like the Test Builder series.

2.0 out of 5 stars Best seller with just 4 tests, 11 Jan. 2014
This book is the best and worst. It has just 4 tests as usual which is hardly anything and the price is high for what it provides. When the book comes out, it is already 6 months behind and it doesn't provide models for speaking like another set of Cambridge books do (not this series). I am sick of Cambridge cheating people with this garbage formula and I wasted good money on this. Stop cheating people and write a proper book. It says on the cover - with answers. Their model answers for writing are limited to certain bands. It needs to improve, but hasn't. Do not give this book a good grade unless you want to see them doing the same rubbish for book 10. If you want a book with more tests, consider the Official IELTS test book by Peter May - purple colour. There are more tests in it and more answers. Ciao.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent but, 11 Jan. 2014
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
The other reviews cover how good this game is. I love it to bits and to come out for the DS is great. However, it feels much better playing it on the original big screen. Sorry to say that and for FF6 portable too. However, if you have never played this game before, then it is a 5/5 for you. To old vets, you may want to stick with your SNES.
