4.0 out of 5 stars reasonably good, 16 Jun 2013
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Tomb Raider (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Personally I've always seen Tomb raider as more of a puzzle game than an out and out shooter yes there has always been combat within the games and was expecting it in this one. Up until now I've always been a casual observer of the TR gsmes really rather than a big participant in them as I haven't played all the games or completed any of them to be fair. However I do enjoy this game. My only problem is with the action sequences or QTE's as I think most people call them especially the falling ledges ones aer rather numerous and hard to do when you only have 1 hand on the controls as I have because of my drisability Personally I think these would have been better done as Cutscenes in the game if these must be in Graphically I have to say is probably one of the best looking games I've ever played. I've always seen Lara as moer of a clever girl that prefers to face a puzzle not so much an action Hero and I think the game should have reflected that more in the game. I will say that the story and Voice acting like the graphics were 1st class though and Camilla Luddington deserves a lot of cerdit in bringing this new Lara to life. If they do plan on making a new TR movie I hope they consider her for the role as I don't think she'd let them down but I digress all in all a good game just needs more puzzle less QTE to be perfect.

4.0 out of 5 stars FIFA 08, 27 Sep 2007
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: FIFA 08 (PS3) (Video Game)
Just got this game and played a bit on it tonight. The game overall looks great can't fault it graphics wise andwith Sky's Martin Tyler and Andy Gray providing the commentary they were obviously going to be on a winner,the only real complaint I have with the game is to move the player you have to use the Left stick and you can't change it which may make things awkward if you are used to using the direction buttonswhich is what I did as I found it easier due to my disability but the stick may prove fruitful when it comes to the Be A Pro mode with a bit of practice. So my overall summary of this game is that if you have a disability then playing FIFA08 isn't going to be easy however in other areas it is a superb game and deserves the label FIFA

4.0 out of 5 stars World Snooker Championship 2005, 12 Feb 2007
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
First of all I think this is an excellent representation to what happens during a snooker match.I have had this game pretty much since it came out and have yet to qualify for any tournaments but I do enjoy the challenge I have come close once or twice but then a big gun comes along and ruins my progress but I have beaten some of the pros like Ronnie O' Sullivan and James Wattana in matches. it can seem at times a slow game but snooker isn't about speed it's about choosing the right shot and hitting it accurately and getting more points than your opponent besides I often enjoy seeing what my opponent is doing so generally I just watch when I am not at the table as it makes it easier for me to decide what my next shot will be Graphically a good game that I think all snooker fans enjoy even if it can be at times tricky.

3.0 out of 5 stars Star Trek Encounters, 14 Dec 2006
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
It is a good game with some excellent6 graphics when the ships blow up they blow up like the ones in the series. The ships are difficult to control especially when you have to alter your height to get through a gate if you have a disability I recommend trying a joystick otherwise it could get frustrating. This is probably the most difficult part of the game as destroying ships for the most part is easy if you are blowing up asteroids you can use torpedoes but as the torpedoes are rather slow I recommend using phasers when taking on ships as they will more often than not hit the target you are aiming at if I were to give a quick description of this game it is like a flight sim game with starships rather than planes but it is great fun if you are a trekkie like myself that loves all 5 series and enjoy flight simulator games I think you will appreciate the game

4.0 out of 5 stars Deal or No Deal, 23 Nov 2006

I would say that out of all the interactive DVD's I have I would say it is one of my favourites granted it is slow selecting the boxes but I think it builds up the suspense which is what it's about is the 1/4 million in that box? I always liked that it didn't take me long to win it as it only took 4 or 5 attempts but it is a challenge as I have only done it once so far but I htink the main aim of this game isn't neccessarily to win the big money although if the opportunity arises go for it it is great fun however the big numbers don't end up in your box very often the 1/4 mil has only been in my box once and I have played this game dozens of times over the past 2 weeks since I got it the main aim is to beat the Banker which is either to sell your box for more than it's actual value or keep it if you feel that the Banker isn't offering you enough Great game does the TV show proud I particularly liked the fact that I recognized a lot of the contestants from their time on the show

This review is from: Formula 1 2006 (PS2) (Video Game)
First of all I have to say great game I generally fingd that driving games for me don't usually work on the Playstation because of my disability As when I play Formula 1 games generally I usually end up hitting the barrier before I even complete my first lap. Without the so called driving aids F1 cars are impossible to control (and I find this frustrating as I like to at least have a shot at scoring points and winning races) on most games so in future Sony it may be a good idea to include them in future releases.

I had been looking to buy a more modern f1 game (as I wanted one with the new rules and points system because my old game for the PC has the old 12 lap qualifying system and 6 points positions whereas now there are 8.) for some time) but due to findding them to hard I hadn't bothered with them F1 06 is different at last I have found a game with up to date rules that I am compatible with. If you have a physical disability and you love racing games then f1 06 is the game for you As for carrer mode I have always wanted a game with that option and F1 06 has sorted that too. Thank you F1 06 for solving my needs
