5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific mouse, 31 Dec. 2008
This review is from: RAZER DEATHADDER (Accessory)
Bought this mouse a couple days ago and it really is fantastic. It's exceptionally comfortable to use and also very responsive. Looks are great too, with the glowing scroll wheel and pulsating Razer logo on the palmrest. There are also two programmable buttons on the side, which are comfortably placed for use but not intrusive if you don't choose to use them. The scroll wheel offers good grip, great for FPS games.
The mouse works really well with a variety of games (I've tried it with Counter-Strike: Source, Team Fortress 2 and Left 4 Dead), and the ability to adjust sensitivity on-the-fly is very useful for gaming in general. I use it with a Razer Goliathus mat and I'm very happy with both.
However, the mouse can only be used with the right hand, so if you use your left hand for mice then you're out of luck.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good game (multiplayer anyway), 29 Nov. 2006
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Fired Up (PSP) (Video Game)
Fired up involves driving about in various vehicles and shooting at folk. The single player is not great, it took me an afternoon to complete it, howvever the multiplayer rocks! Panning your mates with rockets on the bus is awesome, and the gameshare feature is helpful. If you've got no friends (or at least none with a PSP) dont buy it, but if you know even one person with one it's a great game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great but a little deceptive., 29 Jun. 2006
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This is one hell of a machine. I got the giga pack from my birthday as I fancied the idea of a massive amount of memory and the USB cable to make it a proper mutimedia device, with music game demos and videos. However be warned if you have a wireless network at home you don't need the USB cable for downloads from the PSP website, as the PSP can download them straight to its memory stick, doing away with the need to put them through the computer. This is a bit minor as most people havent got a wireless network but I do so heads up. I am still amazed by the graphics and game quality on the PSP. It is more than just a portable PS2, especially with the giga memory stick, with all the media stuff.

On to the big debate: PSP or DS? Although I think the Ds is a joke, I'll try to be as unbiased as possible. A lot of people think the Psp is just a ds minus the touchscreen, myself included, but its not. It is capable of HUGE 3D environments with good graphics, while the DS is better at 2D games with supercrisp graphics. The DS's touchscreen is really smart, and although I had no idea what use a touchscreen was in a handheld, there are lots of wonderfully innovative games showing that. Having two screens is good in itself, as it gives you two views. But i'm afraid the ds is not so great. It's nowhere near as nice looking as the PSP, even the Lite. A PSP disc has room for proper dialogue, a good story, and a soundtrack of real music (by which i mean stuff you can buy) while a DS card just doesn't. The DS is more kid friendly, but games like Loco Roco and Katamari on PSP are too. I'm a fan of racing games, and a touchscreen is little use in a racer, so the PSPs better graphics and processing will pay off. You need to think of what games you like, and which console they will be better on, before you decide.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSH!, 11 Jun. 2006
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Hotswap WOOSH! This is one of my favourite games on PS2. Even in the offline single player mode the missions are non linear, so you never have the same battle twice. And hotswapping is great. Fancy a shot at being a sniper? just look at him and press square and WOOSH! the camera flies across the fabulous landscape before lodging in the head of the hotswapee. You can even nick one of the games many vehicles off the computer this way. The missions are great fun, whether you're chasing patrol boats in a helicopter gunship or defending an oil rig, scooting round the desert in a hummvee or attacking a submarine base. Your performance in the mission earns you stars which earn you ranks and weapon upgrades. I've not got an online PS2 yet but I've heard great things about the multiplayer so I can't wait.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tricky, but worth it., 8 May 2006
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Juiced (PS2) (Video Game)
When you start out in Juiced you buy a nice slow hatchback, win tons of races at 4mph and think that you are pretty good at it. With this in mind, you go and buy something a bit faster and more exciting, probably rear wheel drive. And die. The cars are so tricky to steer you will be proud to get round a corner facing the right way. Despite this, Juiced is in my opinion a fantastic game. If you are used to NFS you will probably hate it, because it is so much more difficult. You'll also hate having to pay for damage to your own car, and for hitting other people's. I know, because it happened to me. All of those things, however, help to make you feel more a part of the game. There is no set storyline, so you must form a crew and train them to race either with you or on their own. The crew system helps to distinguish Juiced from the overcrowded street racer market, and brings some life to an otherwise repetitive game. You cannot treat it like NFS because trying to handbrake turn inevitably ends in a bush and ramming other drivers costs you money, but I think it is a much better game for it. It's so cheap now that you might as well buy it anyway. And if you can ever afford a Viper, get it.
