4.0 out of 5 stars cheap as chips & great fun, 30 May 2012
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
fed up with paying big money for a game, well don't!!!
found this in a games store second hand and having been previously dissapointed with the splinter cell i decided to give it a whirl and i have to say its actually good fun, im not an online player so i have no idea what the online playability is but as a solo game it stands up well!!! its sold as a stealth game but at time you stand just as good a chance going in all guns blazing....there are some very difficult bits and it has the pain in the arse save fuction where its saves the nowhere near where you were killed...but the positives out weigh the negatives, so go on give it a go!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars just a bit dull really!!!!!!!, 7 Dec 2011
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
there are great games and then there are groundbreaking games and the original batman arkham was most certainly the just concentrated on the story, it look good and was impossible to put down...this on the other didn't really do anything better than the original and was very lazy...yeah there are some great bits in this game and i won't spoil your fun if you haven't bought this game yet, but the big duels are just very dull and repetative you kill your opponent...oh and then you have to do it again!!!!.oh it's called arkham city and the city only seems to have four buildings in it!!!!.far to much has been put into the all the side missions which results in a far too short story mode.looks its not a bad game but for me falls well short of the original...happy glidings!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars boring boring boring, 10 Jan 2010
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
there are some things in life that have me totally miffed 1.why has alex ferguson got a knighthood and bob paisley & brian clough never did .2.why do grown sorry any people watch x-factor!! 3. why on earth has this game got so many 4/5 reviews this has to be the most boring game i have ever played this game should be called splinter cell double agent...where you don't actually do anything apart from hide and crouch!!! all you do is sneak what is the point of having weapons if you cannot use them??? this is another of those games where you have to keep saving it every 5 seconds because if you don't you will end up miles back i only played the first 3 levels and was beginning to fall asleep the second level in the prison is just awful, the laughable crouch down function where your crouch is about an inch lower than your walk but they cannot see you?? i felt like an 8 year old on christmas eve just wait for the main but it just never came dull dull dull!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars did this really happen!!!!, 26 May 2009
This review is from: Once In A Lifetime [DVD] (DVD)
how could the world's greatest football player (at the time) join and a bunch of american pub players playing a sport that the majority of the country had never heard of??? well once in a lifetime will shed light on it all, this is the remarkable tale of the new york cosmos told with a tremendous passion by all, just look at the smiles on the faces of the kaiser and carlos alberto as they reminisce (i know they all got paid well)but they all enjoyed it whilst it lasted!from the humble beginnings on a spray painted pitch in front of a hundred fans to the mayhem of 1977 which saw them play in front of 80,000 at giants stadium. the biggest shame about this dvd is the lack of any input by pele,which is a real shame as the whole success of the nasl was mostly down to him, but rumours of pele's insistence of being paid $150,000 probably put pay that!this is the ultimate rags to riches to rags sports story which is well worth a watch for any sports fan. its worth watching just for pele's tackle on rodney marsh!!! only in america.

4.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST FROM 08, 4 Jan 2009
This review is from: In Bruges [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
i have been watching all the top dvd's from the last year some great i.e into the wild, dark knight and some not so good i.e no country for old men & the incredible hulk. in bruges certainly makes it into the great section.the only thing for me that lets it down (slightly) is ralph fiennes whom i take it had watched sexy beast just before filming this.farrell and gleeson are perfect in the lead roles and its a real return to form for farrell who has been quite of late but is a joy in this,the biggest surprise is that this film features the midgit...ere...sorry dwarf from the absolute radio adverts and i found him really creepy in those ad's but is terrific as the tiny actor.
having been sent to sleep by no country for old men this was welcome relief and certainly one of the best films of the year past!!! but the true star of the film is bruges itself,beautifully shot especially the night scenes which really add to the feel of the film.not to be missed

4.0 out of 5 stars not bad at all, 30 Dec 2008
This review is from: Cloverfield [DVD] (DVD)
i love reading the 1 star review...."this film is rubbish" "the actings terrible" or "this is so far fetched" what do you expect???? pick some kids who were to old for high school musical wack in some pretty good cgi and you have quiet a good little film!! i would actually give this 3.5 but i can't! what sort of acting do people expect???? brando or newman!!this is all in all pretty good popcorn cinema and seeing that i watched this a few hours after being bored riged by no country for dull men its easily the best film i have seen today!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars dull dull dull dull dull, 30 Dec 2008
This review is from: No Country For Old Men [DVD] (DVD)
i don't really take note of the oscars especially since over looking bill murray for lost in translation, but being a big fan of javier bardem & tlj i was really looking forward to this, but if i ever bump in to the coen bruv's i will ask them for 1hr 51mins of my life back!! Was this the only film released last year?? how on earth did this win best picture?? it starts off with real promise and an hour into to it your just waiting for a few trade mark coen twists n turns but it just dies a slow painful death it never gets out of 2nd gear which is a real shame considering some good performances from bardem and the much underrated kelly mcdonald.the only films that deserve 1 star are the lion king and the 2 matrix sequals so this gets 2.come on joel & ethan you can do much better than this!!!! if you want to see a really good film from this year check out the orphanage, into the wild,the dark knight or the brill man on wire

2.0 out of 5 stars am i missing something here??, 13 Dec 2008
i've heard nothing but great things about this so i got a copy of the 2 disc version and sat down expecting to be entertained disney style!!!
what a load of rubbish, first of all james earl jones has and always will be (unfortunetly for him) darth vader and i was just waiting for him to say to simba "i am your father" but its the story and the songs thats the biggest problem.the story has been seen 100 times before(i won't spoil it just in case you want to see the film) and for me just didn't work, the songs written by elton john are just poor they just don't fit the film, just think of classic disney songs/music used in disney films of the past dumbo, fantastia, snow white and of course the jungle book all great films where the songs fit perfectly in the lion king they are simply there for elton to sell a few million copies of the soundtrack.
for me the only thing good here is timon & pumbaa who are as funny as anything in any past disney film and save this from being as bad as the incredibles(simply awful).some people seem to love this film(watch nemo or the jungle book both much more fun) but my copy is back on ebay looking for a good home...any takers???

5.0 out of 5 stars a fabulously funny read, 1 May 2008
to the travellers on the metropolitan line can i apologise for my constant laughter whilst reading this book over the last week or so.
a superbly observed book written with a beautiful passion, as someone who has played team sport for along time this really did find my funny bone from the very first pages and a smile was on my face until the last few pages which were then replaced with a few tears!!!just about the funniest sports book i have come across, you will not be dissapointed....and its put me off ever using british airways again.bloody brilliant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars SUIT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, 25 Mar 2008
i honestly don't watch much tv, scrubs & prison break is about it (is that lost progamme stiiiill going??)and i had never heard of this prgramme up until about 4 months ago.i saw a couple of episodes on paramount (they turned out to be from season 2)so i bought the dvd and have gone through it twice already.this show simple rocks!!!the shining light by far is neil patrick harris (ol' doogie howser himself) he steals every scene but all the actors bring great performances and i think the fact that there are no major stars really helps.please buy this and laugh out loud,if only for the scene in the cab after the visit to nightclub....what???? A COMEDY WITH REAL HEART
