(No specific spoilers here) I felt that the ending of the book left things a little open ended, but generally I really enjoyed reading this and it was a good end for the WoT.

1.0 out of 5 stars Noisy/Defective, 27 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nov 2013 received this unit based on a recommendation from a friend.

Device seems good, fairly fast to load discs, iplayer widget easy to use etc.

However, when playing bluray discs (and to a lesser extent dvds) the player's disc drive was making a whirring noise as another reviewer mentionned. I do not have a cupboard to put the player in, my tv stand is open and I could easily hear this noise above the bluray film sound. My 5 year old samsung bluray player does not make this sound therefore I either received a faulty item or this player is using a very poor disc drive component.


Sureflap Microchip Cat Flap
Sureflap Microchip Cat Flap
Offered by Online Pet Doors
Price: £65.00

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute must, 19 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this catflap after finding two 'foreign' cats in our house causing trouble one evening. (I don't think it was the first time).

The product works really well and the cats have got used to it without much trouble at all.

You can disable the locking so the cats get used to the new door, then within a few days enable the locking and my cats got used to it very quickly.

I've also noticed that since I got the new cat flap the amount of food I'm having to put out has gone down! :).

I would call this an almost essential purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Single player, multiplayer buggy and fundamentally flawed, 13 Mar 2011
The single player of AC:B is fantastic. It builds upon the existing story set out in AC(1) and AC2. It is a full game, not an expansion.
The gameplay mechanics have been further improved with more choices of kill methods and new things you can do.

If you've played AC1/2 I would recommend this game based on the single player.

However, the multiplayer experience is fraught with problems and flawed gameplay:

Firstly on xbox live, it can take up to 30 minutes to get in to a game. AC:B doesn't use servers so there are *a lot* of connection problems. Also you can be waiting for literally 30minutes waiting to get 6 people in the lobby to start a game due to the flawed matchmaking. (UBIsofts forum suggests turning off your router's security settings as a possible fix, which is just outrageous.) No other games have these problems that I've encountered with AC:B. Do not underestimate how much of a problem this is.

Secondly, during the multiplayer game itself there are a number of fundamental problems:
In the single player you are encouraged to run on roof tops, climb up things,plus be stealthy. However in the multiplayer, most of the fun things in the game are punished as you will be seen and killed within seconds. Players end up trying to immitate the behaviour of the robotic AI walking around the streets trying to not stand out.

If you're playing the game mode whereby you're being hunted by the other team, you cannot kill your opponents, you can only stun them. However the reach on the stun is VERY short, i.e. you have to be basically touching the other person (whereas assassination can be done from quite a long way away (~6ft)). Also stun only works from behind (or is buggy?) despite the "(x) stun" option appearing when they're facing you.

If you see your enemy coming towards you and you decide to run, once again you'll find yourself frustrated as 90% of the time they can lunge from miles back and kill you.

Also, there is the choice of 'ranked' and 'non-ranked' game types. This is once again very flawed game design. Which option should someone choose? All this does is to further fragment the player base making it harder to find a game.

There is a lot of potential for a fantastic assassin's creed multiplayer experience (co-op single player, roof top challenges, Assassin V Assassin with better AI so you dont have to resort to boring play-style,) however that is not this game.

Overall however, despite being a disappointment, I would still recommend this product for the single player alone which is just fantastic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Makes for a good evening, 30 Jan 2010
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars

Good evening was had by all.

The only thing which is a bit of a shame is that the organiser of the evening knows that 2 of the guests are not really part of it as they are 'extra characters'.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good seller, bit naff product, but does work., 30 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this cable as a replacement for the one supplied originally by HP.
The replacement I received works perfectly and was delivered very quickly. The only problem is that this cable is much shorter than the original which is annoying.
