4.0 out of 5 stars Angels and Demons, 14 Jun 2012
Everywhere there is suspicion of conspiracy. What might be offputting to some readers is the extravagence of the violence towards inncent victims, but then again it is no different to in the other books. This particular story finds demons emerging out of religion and inhabiting a select group of scientists, the Illuminati, a group supposedly long disbanded, but appearing in a very dangerous form. There is adventure, even impossible adventure, a hero and heroine, and even romance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Realistic writing, 22 May 2012
This review is from: Immediate Action (Kindle Edition)
One of the most refreshing things about the book is the amazing attention to detail and inordinate amount of planning put in before an operation proceeds, no gung ho rushing in without thought, guns blazing,as this will normally end in a collosal gang f*** and lots of dead soldiers.four stars from me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Assasins Creed, 21 May 2012
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
New weapons such as the crossbow are very useful in how you can approach stealth kills from a distance. The combat feels more fluid and you can chain attacks together. The new addition I love is the ability to use your sword and hidden gun together to perform some devastating attacks, these can result in quick kills and give you some more space during combat. Aside from the combat/free running, it is your job to free Rome of Borgia control which are part of side missions. Courtesan, thief and assassination missions are examples that add variety to the gameplay if you don't just want to focus on the main campaign. The side missions can result in bonus items so keep an eye out for them. Another useful addition is the ability to ride horses within the districts, this greatly improves your travelling time during missions or just in general. The newest highlight would be the ability to train citizens into assassins, level their skills up as you send them on missions around Europe. Turn them into the ultimate assassin as they can be summoned during missions to give you a great advantage. Virtual training tutorials have also been added to help perfect your skills.

The gameplay is very similar to Brotherhood. You get to run, climb and leap your way through a stunning cityscape; there are secret places to explore; assassin recruits to find and train; goodies to find; viewpoints to climb; shops and landmarks to renovate; templar dens to conquer; side missions and challenges; theives, mercenaries and romanies to ally with; the familiar range of weapons; and of course plenty of soldiers to pick a fight with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Drakes Back !!, 15 April 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Drake is back and still looking for elusive treasure I will not divulge anymore as to why, what or where but I will say it is an epic journey and a fantastic story. Each chapter seamlessly leads into the next without loading screens. It is what we have come to expect from Naughty Dog (developers) and the series as our 'Indiana Jones' or 'Lara Croft' explorer and adventurer embarks on another epic trek to reach a treasure associated with his ancestry as one of the descendants of Sir Francis Drake. Obviously this will involve climbing, jumping exploring as well as combat as others try to prevent you from reaching the final treasure. The story line is full of Twists and turns - again though I will not say more as I don't wish to give away any spoilers. Graphically, this is definitely the BEST of any game on any console and I spent many times just admiring the views and graphic details again and again. It is also worth exploring everywhere you can not just for these views and details but for hidden treasures too.

4.0 out of 5 stars great stuff, 1 April 2012
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Great game, as it's been noted before you feel like you're in a film. The cut scenes and dialogue actually bring something to your enjoyment of the game. There is a nice balance between solving puzzles and popping caps in renegade warlords. The game is graphically rich with a keen eye for detail. Linear in nature, this actually makes the game all the more absorbing, and difficult to stop playing. Would recommend to occasional gamers and more seasoned types alike.

4.0 out of 5 stars Zero Hour, 30 Jan 2012
It's a rollicking ride. I'll spare you the plot description; it's contained at the back and within other readers' reviews. Nick Stone returns for his 13th outing and it's as solid, furiously-paced and hard hitting as the series. Stone has always been a finely crafted and appealing character. He came from a bad background, had little smarts about him, joined the army and has become a genius at his work and a highly effective operator. McNab instills his own personal ideals and what he's learned into Stone, in this novel it can be something simple like immobilising a target, getting 'pinged' or constructing your own improvised explosive device. There's also a vulnerability about Stone, he isn't perfect, his jobs are dirty and gritty and he suffers immensely but he always gets the task completed. These make him much more enduring than similar heroes like Jack Reacher or Mitch Rapp.

McNab's writing is accessible, from the horses mouth, and free flowing. It's a very easy novel to read and the pace flies off the page. Over the last few days I've read more than half of the book. It's a burner. The action is fierce and the scenes are gritty and descriptive.

The plot isn't outstanding, it's good but nothing special, there's some over-reaching themes and conflicting issues and the epilogue could have done with some refining.

I will award it four rather than the five stars. A reason for this is the plot, several conflicting stories and the scene descriptions which can lead you scratching your head wondering where building A is in relation to building B. These are only small niggles but the reader will pick up on them.
