5.0 out of 5 stars "You're pretty good!", 21 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With all the controversy that has bee revealed regarding Konami and Kojima, I'm amazed that we even got this game. And what a game! But before we start I have to preface this review by saying that it has 2 very contrasting sides to it - Gameplay (6/5) and Story (2/5).

Gameplay - Metal Gear has always been faulted for it's clunky controls and dire camera but this seems to have been sorted out, to most extents. The maps are huge but not overly so, the missions are fun and have great replay value, offering you numerous ways to tackel them depending on your play styles and preference. In prevous titles, going in guns-blazing was a sure-fire way to either get killed or be punished severely with total stealth being the MUCH better option, but this does not seem to be the case. Whilst it is a huge departure from what would be expected of the franchise, in the new Open World setting and in terms of the story (which I'll get on to) it works.

Story - OK, I LOVE Metal Gear. I love the lore and story and the weird characters and the fact that most of it doesn't make sense and just how convulted it all is. So when this game came out, I was thinking "Yes, we finally get to see how Big Boss goes from being a neutral mercenary to building Outer Heaven whilst also become commander of FOXHOUND again!" Now, whilst this is true (kinda) it just, well, isn't. I'm not going to spoil things but the story for this game just seems (and IS) unfinished. It's evident that Kojima wanted so much more to happen but it would appear that Konami wanted the game out to make money as well as to get rid of one of the greatest creators in video game history as quickly as possible. There are 2 chapters in the game but data-mining shows that there should have been 3 and there is a "final" mission that was being worked on but that was ultimately cut that actually closes a massive subplot in the game but is just left hanging.

Verdict - if you have never played a Metal Gear game, chances are you won't really understand what is going on with the story but the gameplay will keepyou so entertained that you won't really care (or it might inspire you to go back and play the rest of the series - which you SHOULD). If you are a fan of the series, you will most likely hate the story (or lack thereof) but again, the gameplay will keep you playing. Currently, I have over 200 hours of playtime and I still can't take the disc out of my PS4! It's ... that ... good!

4.0 out of 5 stars It's not as bad as I thought ..., 21 Dec. 2015
This review is from: Jurassic World [DVD] (DVD)
I'm beginning to think that Chris Pratt could be the next big thing in Hollywood - he can do action, comedy and drama, which is what this film has.

Now, if you're expecting something entirely new here, sorry to disappoint but it's a Jurassic Park film. *SPOILERS BUT NOT REALLY* They are all basically the same - the go to an island where everything is fine, someone does thing moumentally stupid and the whole place is put in peril.

Now that this is out the way, let's look at the film properly with no spoilers. The script is ... alright, some lines are stupid, some sub-plots don't really go anywhere, but on the whole it's solid. There are some nice homages to the original film and some little jokes that help to give a feeling of nostalgia. The special effects are fairly decent and you do get a sense of wonder and danger about the animals. However, and this is my biggest fault with all the films after the first one, there are not enough practical dinosaur effects used. Go back and watch the first film ... go on ... watched it? Good! It still stands up today over 20 years later because there are moments when you don't know if it's real or a CGI model (granted some DO look dated but .. shut up!). Nowadays, you know that there isn't really something there and actors are watching a tennis ball on a stick or in a huge green room.

On the whole though it's a fun flick and worth a watch. It adds to the story of JP without being too pandering to previous installations and tries to build on the lore.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is amazing - funny, 21 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite being a bit of a comicbook geek, I know NOTHING about the Guardians Of The Galaxy - it's a series that I just never got into. So with that being said, I have no preconceptions or ideas of how this film should have gone.

It is amazing - funny, dramatic, action-packed. I found myself laughing hysterically in places. It does a great job of fleshing out the main characters and showing how they become a team. I will say that the main villain is a little under-developed and seems a little trivial in the end but at the same time, there is a LOT of story to try and cram in with some complicated lore that only Marvel can do. I'm guessing if you read more of the comics, you'd understand why the Kree and the Nova are at war, etc.

That being said, it is a welcome addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and I can't wait to see how they wil tie in with the rest of the movies as they go along.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not worth paying all the extras for, 21 Dec. 2015
This review is from: Driveclub (PS4) (Video Game)
I got this game free with PSN Plus one month but then had to pay to unlock (what I thought at the time) was the real, full game. Boy was I wrong about that. As an arcade, jump-in-and-out racer it has it's merits - it's fun, it's silly, it's forgiving As a racing sim, it's garbage. As a game, it's pure money-grubbing, paid-DLC, everything that is wrong with the current day games industry bulls**t!

You want more cars? You have to pay!
You want more events? You have to pay!
Sure, you can buy the "Season Pass" and get all of these things but when the game itself only ships with only 2 sets of events to play and the rest are all DLC, it smacks of greed at it's finest. That would be fine if the game was so amazing that you just had to have more, but the fact is ... it's an average racer that doesn't really bring anything new to the table in terms of gameplay and fun that hasn't been done already, nor does it break the mould for a driving sim either.

If you want fun, simple racing - play Need For Speed (which will at least give you a full game to play). If you want realism - Gran Turismo is the way to go everytime. I can see what they were trying to do with this game, but it's just not worth pumping all the extra money into to warrant it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Same old, (unfortunately) same old - the Arkham-verse conclusion is conclusive, 5 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As the end of the Akhamverse trilogy, this has everything that was good about the previous games in it - expansive areas, great visuals, the ability to play as Batman and inspire fear in criminals. Unfortunately, it also has some of the bad (including somethings that Origins had that should have been fixed) - the combat seems to have got worse not better and there is very little variation in scenarios and enemies.

The biggest let-down for me is the Batmobile sections. This vehicle should be the ultimate machine on the roads, should drive like it's on rails and outrun ANYTHING, yet there are times when you can't keep up with an Armoured (ie. HEAVY) Personnel Carrier, it slides around almost comically and can't accelerate at all. After years of seeing Batman's tech improve, it feels very disappointing in chases, races and battle. On the other hand, to be able to drive this "tank" around Gotham when you're just free roaming is amazing.

If you enjoyed the previous games, this will be up your street hands-down - I have played nothing else for the last week - but I can't help feeling that Rocksteady took the decision to move it to Next-Gen simply for graphics. I can see nothing in the game that could not have been on PS3/XBox360 and the time could have been spent on actually refining some of the features from previous games that have been a bug-bear. The story and side-quests are the usual affair and over-convoluted villains plot is over-convoluted (as expected in a Superhero story), but some of it just feels a little lack-lustre. Granted I haven't completed the entire game as yet, but I have got through the main story mission and I'm sorry to say, I think Rocksteady dropped the ball a little. The Arkham Knight could have been an amazing character, one that could have crossed over into the main comic stories (like Harley Quinn and Batman TAS) but instead ... well it's a spoiler so I won't say but if you know about Batman's history ...

Overall, a fun and engaging game. There are some deep issues dealt with for Batman and the inclusion of the Batmobile is fun but I'm afraid, feels over-used instead of innovative boss-battles that were so praised in Arkham City. But there is plenty to do and there is a lot for Batman fans to enjoy! I am the night, I am vengence, I ... AM ... BATMAN!

3.0 out of 5 stars There's better out there, 9 Aug. 2013
This game isn't great for a racing game. I remember getting this after playing Colon McRae Rally and being very disappointed with it. For a start, the graphics aren't great - the wheels of each car look like they're about to fall off and that's just at the start of the race before any damage. The main problem that I have with this game, however, is the handling - there are only front and 4WD cars in the game (without using cheats). This is representative of thee BTCC at the time, but when you drive at the limit the expected understeer that you would experience in a real car doesn't occur - all of a sudden, your car acts like the rear wheels have just lifted off the floor and you spin at a moments notice. The hours of frustrated gameplay that I spent on this game, having to restart a race because the car has spun for no reason and you don't have enough points to move on, doesn't bare thinking about.

1.0 out of 5 stars Save yourself, 2 Jun. 2010
This item is very disappointing to say the least. Oh let me count the ways in which this product is a let down -

- the device is clunky and unresponsive
- the icons on the screen at too small for optimal use, cannot be customised or changed
- the thing feels cheap and flimsy
- it seems to be rushed in design with too many features for the actual spec of the product
- combatibility of the video player is not good, with only a few filetypes supported and even then it's lucky if they play
- the manual is unhelpful and actually says that the thing may crash from time to time (how did this product actually get past testing and to the market?!)

In conclusion, this thing feels cheap and tacky, the screen is too cluttered and crowded for easy use. If you want to take it to the gym, better set the play list and volume and anything else before you even start because trying to navigate just switching tracks can be a task in itself.

There are much better small MP3 players out there which are cheaper and more functional. They may not have all the "features" of this player, but then again they don't work on it so what's the point in having them. If you want video play back and a camera and everything else this thing claims, bite the bullet and pay a little more for a reputable brand because this one sucks!

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant game ... and I've hardly got half way through it ., 24 Feb. 2005
All I have to give this game is praise. While CM3 refreshes us with updated graphics and a better feel (although quite heavily focused on the Ford Focus with very little development on the other cars), CM4 seemed to stagnate a little with nothing new really added. CM5 has changed this thought, with the vast array of cars and challenges as well a career and championship mode, this game is set to entertain a lot. As for realism, you would have to have driven a real rally car to know how real it is, but the physics engine has definately been improved.
A solid game that will keep you busy trying to complete it.
Oh, and one final note, and heads up however. Make sure that you have enough space free on your memory cards (4.2MB! So that's over half!)

4.0 out of 5 stars THUG indeed, 22 Mar. 2004
Prett much everything you would come to expect from a Tony Hawk's game. Brilliant gameplay and controls, insane tricks and outlandish levels.
And that's the problem. It is just another Tony Hawk game. There's not really any advancement of the series. Look past the fact that you don't play as a pro but as a 'street-punk' working his way up the ranks, and what have you got? THPS4 with couple of new moves and features (ie. walking, acid drops, cavemans, etc). The goals seem loosely connected to the story at the best of the times and don't really have much to do with actually becoming a professional skate-boarder (eg. racing a car to get into a street-racing gang).
On the whole a sound game, but there's not really much more the series can do except to update graphics, add new moves and make the game ultra-realistic (which is not what the game is about. Grinding telephone wires in real-life? I don't think so). Still it's a great game to just pick up and play and gives some great (and sometimes infuriating) gameplay for a few hours.

4.0 out of 5 stars Started Something. But what?, 22 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Start Something (Audio CD)
I'm a big fan of Lostprophets and have been since I heard Shinobi vs. Dragon Ninja. So when I heard that they had a new album coming out, naturally I put it on my wish list. Now don't get me wrong, Start Something is a very good album but to me I just feel that it's more of the same as The Fake Sound Of Progress. You can tell they are different albums but not by much there's more a feel of 'uncreativity/unwillingness to change' rather than 'if it ain't broke don't fix it'. I don't know, there's something missing ... that X factor that was so abundant in TFSOP is just lacking slightly, but to be fair it is a very accomplished and enjoyable album.
