4.0 out of 5 stars awesome but......................, 6 Oct. 2012
brilliant bit of nostalgia containing one of the most important and greatest games ever the original sonic! used to love the megadrive back in the day and some of the classic games are still good fun to play. only gripe is my favourite megadrive games are sonic 1, ea hockey, road rash, super monaco gp, streets of rage, truxton of which only 2 are on here. i know why coz EA games made 2 of them so maybe hard to get the license for them. its a shame though coz to have all 6 of these games would have been brilliant! (im not that annoyed though coz already got an original megadrive 2 with these 6 games, just a pain setting it all up every time i want a spin on them, plus you dont have the save option that the xbox version has)

5.0 out of 5 stars comedy gold!, 20 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
massive coogan fan and for £3.97 well worth getting for the gareth cheeseman dearth of a salesman, which is pure genius and every bit as funny as partridge! the brilliant get calf episode is also coogan at his best. the other 4 even though they funny don't reach the same heights but still as i said before worth buying for the first 2 episodes alone

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant fifa!, 30 Oct. 2011
This review is from: FIFA 12 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
i'll just get the old fifa vs pro bit out the way. basically love the first 6 pro's, then adored fifa 09,10 and 11, even going as far as saying fifa 11 is best footy game ever! looks amazing,great to play,all the licences etc etc, so just wanna point out that im in no way biased whilst writing this review. was pro man, then fifa

got fifa 12 the day it came out and as expected the presentation is spot on. the brilliant kasabian came blaring out my tele and the menus, graphics etc look an improvement on 11. then i played a game..... my mate (also a massive 09,10,11 fan) who had the demo warned me that the defending had changed for the worse but there was no way i wasnt getting fifa 12.

basically ive just changed my review from 3 out 5 to 5 out of 5. since ive got the game ive persisted with it and now love it!!!! i did have to change to "legacy" defending coz i just cant enjoy the game with the new defending system and its definately harder than fifa 11, ie used to play world class on fifa 11 and could even win on legendary but with fifa 12 i play on professional. just created a euro 12 tournament with all the same groups (except no ukraine and czech so replaced with belgium and switzerland) and it was brilliant and i won it with france! played it on easy semi pro but changed the settings on computer ability so they have 100 for keeper, 100 for shooting, passing etc. graphics have improved, commentary is great tho i liked andy gray, all in all i was too premature with my first review. its a brilliant game!

5.0 out of 5 stars best book ever!, 1 April 2011
absolutely brilliant book from start to finish!always loved gangsta movies such as godfather, carlitos way, scarface , casino etc and wanted to read about a real life drug baron and they dont get much bigger than pablo escobar. his brothers account of what happened is engrossing and gives you an idea of how it was. the endless stories he tells of how they were nearly caught by the police so many times whilst hiding away on one of pablos many farms is exhilerating. roberto also doesnt 100% side with pablo. he often makes the point that pablo was no saint and that his chosen carear path was obviously dangerous and that pablo knew that came with the territory. as pablo said "no drug dealer ever died of old age"

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
got this out at blockbusters years ago. wasnt expecting that much but was pleasantly surprised in that its a thouroughly entertaining film that leaves you hooked from start to finish. this film should be really well known & is in my opinion one of the best films of the last 10 years and its definately in my top 20 films ever! you should buy it

5.0 out of 5 stars the pablo escobar of games!, 12 April 2010
scarfcae is my favourite film of all time so when i got this game expectations were high. im glad to say it totally lives up to the brilliance of the film and im happy that they did a new story for it, rather than rehashing the film missions. the graphics are top notch for an old xbox game and the voices are perfect! i couldnt believe it when i realised that it wasnt pacino doing tonys voice as he sounds so much like him. the gameplay is similar to the brilliant gta games but i think scarface is even better than rockstars masterpieces. i think this game slipped under the radar a bit coz it was released late on in xbox's life & if it was redone on the 360/ps3 then im sure it would be a massive hit. there is so much you can do and you can interact with every character in the game. the conversations you have with them are hilarious but this game definately desreves its 18 rating not just for the colourful language but also the violent missions. i use the cheats "ammo" and "medik" nearly all the time simply coz its a hard game to complete. the cops especially are tough to get away from. the cut scenes are great and the story is brilliantly written and truly worthy of being associated with the best film of all time! buy it!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars the highs and lows, 12 April 2010
simply the greatest film i have ever seen! mustve watched it over 25 times and still never get bored of it. such a thrilling story from start to finish and pacino is obviously brilliant. i am biased in that i love gangster films such as godfathers,carlitos way,casino,blow etc but scarface is my number one as it runs at a good pace, has a great mixture of action and suspense. probably best not to watch in front of the kids coz of the excessive use of swearing & the famous chainsaw scene (you dont actually see much). it is over the top and very 80's but so what? it works. im sure by now youve already seen the film so i wont explain the story but the added bonus disc is a welcome addition. to conclude a movie that should be in every collection

1.0 out of 5 stars snore patrol, 12 Jan. 2010
if this is their best of so far then i dread to hear what their other songs are like (not that i have any intention of doing so). I think a more appropiate title for this collection of bland songs would be "greatest hits" with an S in front of the hits. i just don't see the point of bands like these? songs like run are the type of songs you hear on hollyoaks when something bad has happened. what makes it even worse is that these groups are really popular, which no doubt makes them rich. there is no justice. they are the musical equivalent of big brother, el hadji diouf & jaime oliver. very successful but rubbish. i wouldnt be that bothered but i have to listen to bands like athlete, coldplay, starsailor etc on radio 2 at work every day. time to stop moaning & listen to my ipod of proper quality, uplifting music like the stone roses, kasabian, arctic monkeys, pigeon detectives & oasis. i know my review hasnt actually been very constructive but i suppose you can't just have loads of reviews saying how great it is, coz then it wouldnt be balanced. anyway rant over.
