4.0 out of 5 stars The Office, 27 Oct. 2005
If you don't already own the Office Series One on DVD, then you might consider getting the series on UMD. The Office provides comedy which will make you laugh so loud everybody on the bus will want to know what's making you laugh so loud.
There are scenes from this TV show that are timelessly funny, and you'll enjoy watching them again and again. Each episode is 30 minutes and there are six of them. However, the series has been split onto two discs, so three are on each. Also, because of the shortage of space on the discs, there are no extras, which you would get on a DVD.
One more criticism is that the sound isn't very loud, even if you are wearing earphones with the sound to the maximum. If you're travelling on a bus that makes a lot of sound, or there are people around noisily chatting, you'll struggle to hear what is being said on the DVD. The only option is to have subtitles on.
Despite this, the Office is a comedy classic; and although its comedy concept has been done before (in the Day Today) it still manages to have you laughing out loud.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic Horror Survival, 30 Sept. 2005
Gameplay (10):Many weapons to use/environments are interactive/cinematics involve quick interaction/enemies are tense, huge and creative/controls are easy to learn, but the game will challenge you to the hardest.
Graphics (10):The best graphics on any console/extremely detailed with a smooth frame rate/lots of action on screen at one time/widescreen to give a clearer view/cinematics transist seamlessly/very atmospheric/beautiful at times, but highly scary
Sound (sound):The audio matches the graphics, for once/eerie sound effects/excellent voice acting/tense, atmospheric soundtrack
Value (10):The game is considerably long/2 discs/takes you through every possible horror scenario/fantastic storyline to keep you engaged/lots of extra material on 2nd disc/you'll want to replay again and again
Tilt (10):The game has easily become the game of the year/ has appeared in IGN's 100 games of ALL TIME/audio and visuals match perfectly with the gameplay and value
IF you've seen the trailers, you've probably only seen videos of the village section of the game; this ection only covers a third of the game. This game is like playing an epic Lord of the Rings horror survival.
