5.0 out of 5 stars Slick PS4, 4 Dec 2013
Previously I owned both PS3 and XBOX 360, but decided this is the time to make a choice of which I should invest in first. For me I have to say I am very happy with PS4, it is fantastic build quality, looks slick, has immense power, much improved controller, great exclusives on the way and an untouchable bonus of remote play with the PS Vita so I can continue playing on the go whenever and wherever I want.

If you want an Xbox one then that's your call and I respect anyone's choice, but look at this coldly and hands down the PS4 is simply the better machine for gamers. Sony lost their way but they have rediscovered their mojo again, they are doing a lot to satisfy gamers, just look at PS+ for the past year.

PS4 is running smooth and loving Killzone, so for me this is everything I expected at launch and they are delivering on the promise, that has to be worth 5 stars. Can't wait for 2014 and the stack of games on the way !!!!

On Boxing Day I added the Xbox one to my collection, you can see my Xbox review and for now the PS4 definitely comes out on top for the pure gamer.

5.0 out of 5 stars A stunning PS3 exclusive, 22 Jun 2013
This review is from: The Last Of Us (PS3) (Video Game)
Seriously I have to say I am typically an impatient gamer, I want action and really don't like slow to build games.

The Last Of Us however has blown me away, give this just a little time say 30 mins and soon enough you find yourself being absorbed in a brilliant story, it truly is gripping, no sooner have you put the controller down you want more.

The controls are precise and the voice acting is the best I have come across on any platform absorbing you into the story line, but plenty of action along the way, those guys at Naughty Dog are amazing and this is of the highest quality.

I actually played this game at launch and have since been through it again 3 more times so decided to rewrite my review. For most gamers you will really appreciate the utter genius and precision of this game, I would urge anyone to give this a go...a must for the PS3 collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Stunning - The Beast have arrived, 20 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Battle Beast (Audio CD)
This is simply an amazing and stunning metal album from the mighty Battle Beast. Some people had serious question marks when the band were forced last year to find a replacement for the fabulous Nitte Valo and what a replacement they have found ! The new vocalist is quickly becoming a genuine metal goddess, the amazingly talented Noora Louhimo has such a great range and is a true metal singer. For those who love the classic metal style with a modern twist and high quality production then this is most definitely for you.

The whole band perform well, but above all full credit has to go to the genius behind this band, Anton Kabanen, lead guitarist, the master song writer and producer of this album, he has delivered the basics to enable the whole band to bring a tight and dynamic set of songs.

The influences from Accept , Helloween, Kai Hansen in particular to Judas Priest and Sabaton are all discreetly in there, early Accept seems the biggest influence for sure, check out those deep backing vocals, along with Sabaton style keyboards, above all these are classy songs, some great riffs and ones you want to play over and over again, oh plus the vocals, god the great vocals !!!!

This is the second full album for Battle Beast and without a doubt a real step up, the first album was great but this pushes them to the next level. Lets hope they get the credit they deserve and for now I am just excited to have this simply stunning album in my collection !!! Seriously buy this and take note that The Beast really have arrived ! Play it Loud.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fricking Amazing Force of Destruction !!!, 9 Dec 2012
This review is from: Force Of Destruction (Audio CD)
This is simply German heavy metal at its very best.

First off this is an awesome metal album, if you are looking for exploding twin guitars in the vein of Priest or Primal Fear or Accept, then you are going down the right street, the guitar harmonies are spot on and all backed up with the metal vocals of Andreas Babuschkin.

Tracks like 'Blades of Hell' and `Gods of Thunder' are just two examples of great riffs and power, this is a band that has been around some years but truly this has to be the the best to date, these guys really do need recognition and reward for some fantastic work. Seriously go out and buy this if you want a classic metal album. Kai Hansen makes a token guest appearance but this is all about Paragon and the amazing `Force of Destruction', its pure heavy heavy metal at its finest, full of energy, guitars and more guitars backed by solid drums and those metal vocals that are the icing on this very fine cake.

This has to be one of the top Metal albums of 2012, crank it up and play it loud, enjoy !!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Metal at its very best !, 18 Oct 2012
This review is from: Right In The Guts (Audio CD)
Get ready for an amazing metal album. Great meaty sound that just powers through the entire album, some really catchy riffs, great guitar and drum work, topped with some edgy vocals, you can only imagine how good this would sound live, if you like that classic Accept style then this is an absolute must. Herman knows how to cut and produce decent tracks and this should definitely be in your personal collection. The band sounds tight and like they really mean business. Roaring Thunder is a cracking opener and then the great songs keep coming, difficult to single out the best but certainly Starlight, Hell isn't Far and Lights Are Out, do it for me ! As always crank it up and enjoy !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best FPS on hand held to date, 3 Jun 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
As soon as this came out I wanted this to be a great FPS as the Vita is such a cool unit, I read some poor reviews but thought what the hell. Seriously this really is a great game, the dual analogue works as slick as PS3 so the controls are tight and accurate. A vast array of weapons and the touch screen is used cleverly to tag enemies, throw grenades as well as launch special weapons. Sound all in all is very good as the mood of the game changes, a solid story line which keeps the interest level.

Considering where we have come from in portable gaming, this really is worth playing and its finally a reality of playing high quality FPS In your hands, im sure you will agree after playing that it sets a healthy new standard for others to follow and beat, sure there is room for improvement and so i would grade this a healthy 8 out of 10, its always harder to lead then follow but with games like call of duty on the horizon the future looks to be bright for Vita, no matter who wants it to fail, give us quality games and we will buy !

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond the fire and the flames, 28 April 2012
This review is from: The Power Within (Audio CD)
I'm glad these guys are back and delivering their formula of speed, precision, awesome guitars, drums and as always a great front man! Making them a classy metal band ! I agree that this is kind of the same formula repackaged, but this is exactly what has made them stand out from the crowd, after a few listens it soon becomes obvious this is an excellent album, with some killer tracks and just leaves you wanting more. For me I say go get it, support DF on the road and welcome the boys back by playing it loud, crank it up !

5.0 out of 5 stars PS Vita Magic, 25 Feb 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Let's just keep this simple, this is without doubt the most advanced games handheld unit on the planet, yes certain things could be improved in time but this is an amazing piece of kit, truly it's like having a PS3 in your hands.

I kind of get frustrated with people bitching about their little issues on where sony went wrong. If you want to play high quality gaming like uncharted, or coming soon - call of duty or assasins creed then this is a sound investment, really loving using this console.

yes their is a place for phone games but it's directed at an entirely different audience, hats off to Sony on a cracking effort - if remote play really gets working then I would give it six stars !!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Play it loud 24/7 !, 21 Nov 2011
Have to say this is a cracking little album. Yes kind of old school metal, but also has a modern feel and mix. Great riffs and the lead vocals by the amazing Liv are just a joy, growling thhroughout yet a great voice. The tribute to UDO with their rendition of 24/7 just sums up what they are all about. Seriously I have said it on other reviews, if you just want some great metal sounds that you can blast out at volume 10 then just crank it up and enjoy, you won't regret it !!!!
