2.0 out of 5 stars Should be locked up!!, 29 Jan. 2011
This review is from: 25 to Life (PS2) (Video Game)
I found this game way,way too hard,even though I had it set on the "easy" menu option! The enemies constantly move around so quickly and randomly it's very difficult to hit them once,let alone with enough shots to take them down. Some also fire at you from distant areas that don't appear on your "enemy radar" so you have no idea where the fire is coming from. Others are equipped with weapons such as petrol bombs and rocket launchers that do a great deal of damage to you. The upshot is that you end up dead very quickly. As well as completing major objectives in order to progress through the missions,there are also optional minor ones to carry out,but you're normally too busy trying to stay alive to be bothered with these. To progress through the game at all I had to resort to using an Action Replay cheat system, and even with this it's still a frustrating experience. I also found the migraine-inducing high pitched whine that occurs for several seconds after an explosion has gone off nearby to be very annoying,ditto the wibbly-wobbly screen if you get stunned. Once I finished the game I was surprised at how short it is. It only has 12 missions plus a bonus level which I unlocked by completing the game. It's possible there may be other bonus levels if you complete all the minor objectives, but I didn't do this. All in all, I think it's one for hardened players only. (Earplugs optional !).

This review is from: Hitler's Army (Hardcover)
I was very impressed with this book. It is a very comprehensive history of the rise and fall of the Wehrmacht in WW2. Not only that, it covers a wide range of related subjects such as weapons,uniforms,logistic supply and tactics in a fair amount of detail considering that it's all crammed into one book. I was surprised for example to find out that the army actually had hospitals for horses ! Be aware though that the book only concerns the Wehrmacht ground forces.Other establishments concerned such as the SS,Navy and Luftwaffe only get the occasional mention where their activities overlapped those of the Army. There are also a few mistakes in the description of some of the tanks used,but these are only minor and don't detract from the book as a whole. Overall excellent.

3.0 out of 5 stars Base not supplied, 24 Jan. 2011
I am in full agreement with an earlier reviewer in that this product is a bit of a let-down if you purchased the original release several years ago and are expecting this re-release to be identical. The earlier model came with everything you see on the box,including a very detailed base as shown. Sadly this is missing from the new version which detracts quite a bit from the authentic appearance of the model. Before,you had a realistic diorama layout. Now,you just get a loose house and some bits. Still a good building for wargaming but would have been better with the base.

5.0 out of 5 stars For ''kids'' of all ages, 19 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Space Race (PS2) (Video Game)
This is a great game for kids and adults alike. Think Mario kart but with hover bikes, better graphics and handling and more speed. By far though, much better gameplay. As you race you collect boxes containing Acme weapons to use against your opponents. You can bomb and blast your fellow racers, throw a portable hole on to the road in front of them, and drop an elephant/piano/anvil/safe/one ton weight on their heads amongst other deviltry. As well as the standard races on various worlds there's a tournament series and special races where you can select special events to occur, such as the racetrack being full of portable holes or a skyload of falling objects (see above) raining down. The game also has unlockable characters and additional tracks. Very easy if played solo, but a lot of fun with 2 to 4 players. (requires playstation multi - tap if more than 2 wish to play).

At first glance I was a bit disappointed with this publication as the interior photos don't live up to the flashy cover artwork. Some of the photos are very poor and show little detail. However, once I started reading it I found it to be a very concise and detailed history of WW2 aircraft. The author certainly seems to know his subject. Very detailed and comprehensive, only let down a little by the photos.

This review is from: Crazy Golf (PS2) (Video Game)
I can't begin to describe how bad this is. The ball physics are nonexistant,and the ball just seems to go where it likes. Kids would have more fun using the disc as a frisbee. I'm using mine as a drinks coaster. Avoid.


"Standard Catalog of" German Military Vehicles
"Standard Catalog of" German Military Vehicles
by David Doyle
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars More than a standard catalog., 6 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a really good publication. It contains a brief history and technical details of not just the common tanks,SP's,armoured cars etc but also lists rare vehicles and prototypes and also trucks and cars. Very well presented. A few negative points though. The tech details of each machine while detailed completely omits any armour details,although there are occasional passing references in the history texts,and the pages are very thin so that you can see the outline of photos on the next page through the one you are reading,hence the 4 star rating.

2.0 out of 5 stars Road Rash it ain't !, 6 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jacked (PS2) (Video Game)
I'm a great fan of the old Road Rash games,and have them in all formats on several consoles except the PS2,so I expected that this would be the equivalent. It isn't. As a previous reviewer has stated,the gameplay is rubbish. The original bike you start with is impossible to get round turns unless you slow right down,but if you slow down you have next to no chance of catching the other bikes up,let alone qualifying in order to unlock the other tracks. I keep going back to the game now and then but am still stuck with the first bike with no other tracks unlocked. Poor.

This review is from: Puckoon [2002] [DVD] (DVD)
I'm a great fan of Spike Milligan and have read all of his books including Puckoon. I have to say that I found this DVD translation to be a complete letdown and not in any way funny. There was one mildly amusing bit where the border is drawn along people's gardens so that they can't get to their outside toilets, but that's about it as far as the humour goes. Considering the big names present,it should have been so much better. Spike was an absolute genius and could produce great humour from absolute nonsense but any attempt to adapt his work by others usually,as here,only succeeds in reversing the process.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best so far, 16 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the best book on the subject I've come across to date. There's a lot of detail included which is invaluable for enthusiasts. A good point is that it contains details of many rare or prototype vehicles, some of which I've only rarely come across in other publications during my 30 odd years of study of the subject. It also has tanks,APCs,armoured cars,SP guns and tank destroyers all included. A few negative points however. There are some glaring omissions of some of the more common vehicles which really should have been present in such an otherwise comprehensive collection,and some of the images are of completely the wrong AFV being described in the text. Also there's quite a bit of unnecessary waffle in the descriptions of the modern AFVs such as "the hatch opens to the left" etc, which gets repetitive after a while. Altogether though, a very good buy.
