Jaws Unleashed (Xbox)
Jaws Unleashed (Xbox)

4.0 out of 5 stars more a lemon shark than great white, 26 Oct. 2009
This review is from: Jaws Unleashed (Xbox) (Video Game)
i have mixed feelings about this game. i do really like it and recommend if you are a big fan of the jaws film but it really could've been better. the shark is quite tricky to control and the fact that you have to keep finding food every couple of minutes or you die does get quite annoying. i did however really enjoy this game once i'd put in a cheat for it (shaaark) as it instantly unlocks everything and makes your shark really fast, powerful, agile and able to go without food for longer. as another reviewer has said it would be good if you also had the option of playing as brody to try and hunt the shark and it's a shame the game couldn't have more jaws license such as the john williams score and cut scenes from the film. if they ever redid jaws for the 360 then i reckon it could be awesome but this is still a good game and well worth getting (just remeber to put the cheat in)

5.0 out of 5 stars as good as houchens header!, 26 Oct. 2009
This review is from: Music For The People (Audio CD)
got fifa 10 to thank for getting "music for the people" coz the brilliant enemy song "be somebody" is on the soundtrack. it really is one of the most uplifting tunes i've heard so i just had to get the album. for some reason though i wasnt expecting much but im delighted to say its a great album full of top tunes. some other reviewers are right that there are a few songs that sound alot like other bands (51st state & red tape sound like the clash, nation of checkout girls does sound like a heavier common people and ive heard the verves "come on" riff in opening 2 songs) but when it sounds as good as this, then i don't really care! some reviewers are saying that the enemy aren't producing ground breaking complex music, but so what! bands like the enemy, kasabian & oasis simply make me feel 10ft tall. i'd rather go see an m people tribute band with howard from the halifax ads than listen to bands like coldplay, radiohead & athlete. opening track "elephant song" is simply awesome turned up to 11, "no time for tears" is another proper anthem, "sing when you're in love" is another top tune and "be somebody" are my favourites but i really like the other songs as well. "last goodbye" is proof that tom clarke can't just write loud anthems and im glad ive found another top band to love.

5.0 out of 5 stars pro evo 4 fifa 10 4. pro wins on pens!, 24 Oct. 2009
only played 10 games but already i love it! yeah its got a few niggles such as lack of spanish/italian commentary, lack of fifa 10's license, dodgy tactics menu, poor create a player edit mode, utds home socks are white instead of black but who cares when the ultra slick, challenging,realistic gameplay is as great as this! plus the amazing champions league license more than makes up for defects. throw in the perfect replays,the photo like realism of players faces,the amazing goals you can score, the authenticity of controlling someone like messi and then you realise that people who LOVE the beautiful game are very lucky in that both fifa 10 and pro evo 2010 are fantastic! i won't sit on the fence though. i love fifa 10 but i reckon i'll be playing this pro evo loads more than fifa in a few months

5.0 out of 5 stars should be bigger than "thriller"!, 23 Oct. 2009
This review is from: Wait For Me (Audio CD)
i simply love this album! heard "romantic type" on soccer am and thought i'd get the cd, not really expecting much. how wrong i was. it really is infectious and even after repeated listens i still love it. so many catchy songs that make you wanna go out with your mates, just like definately maybe makes you feel. "i found out", "take her back" are my favourite songs & will always be on every compilation cd i ever make for my car. none of the other songs are fillers and i can honestly say i don't feel the need to skip any songs. they are all proper anthems, perfect as other reviewers have said, for having a few beers with your mates , playing pro evo, before a night on the tiles. buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars simply brilliant!, 23 Oct. 2009
This review is from: Duel (Special Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
as you probably already know the story is very basic and when i explain it to my mates they say "its sounds boring" but it really is a great film. i watched it when i was 12 and i was hooked from start to finish. even now after watching it loads of times i find it hard to not watch it all the way through if i stumble upon it on tele. weaver is fantastic as a petrified driver and a young spielberg does a brilliant job of directing it. the real star tho is the intimadating truck! its only a pg but its a thrilling suspense story that is every bit as good as jaws even tho its low budget. duel is one of them cult classics like vanishing point and it deserves all its 5 star ratings

5.0 out of 5 stars glorious!, 23 Oct. 2009
This review is from: The Last Broadcast (Audio CD)
doves don't look cool, ive only actually heard half their songs of which half im not too keen on. so why have i given this album 5 stars? coz when they get it right they make absolutely fantastic music! pounding, caught by the river & there goes the fear are truly fantastic & its worth buying this album for these 3 songs alone! i just wish all there songs could make you feel as good as pounding does. when they up the tempo with songs like black and white town (not on this album) then they really show what a great band they are

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best games ever!, 21 Oct. 2009
This review is from: Black (Xbox) (Video Game)
black really is amazing and easily one of my favourite games of all time. the storyline is great and the gameplay is perfect. its the cod4 of the ps2/xbox. the graphics are fantastic for an old xbox game & one of my mates thought it was a 360 game. the sounds of the guns are brilliant and the enemy are a real challenge, especially the guys with the hockey masks! the only downsides are lack of multi player and the lack of save checkpoints. i could go on and on about how much i love this game but to conclude buy it. especially at this low price. its a lost diamond and well worth checking out if you still got the old xbox. i got a 360 but i still give this a bash even tho ive completed it a few times

5.0 out of 5 stars 10 dart finish!, 21 Oct. 2009
if you got a 360 & you love darts then definately get pdc 08! it's brilliant fun & very addictive. i got it last week & ive played it loads. the career mode looks like providing long term appeal & 2 player games with your mates are great! it really does create the sky sports presentation just like fifa 10 does for football. there are few things that could be improved such as repetive commentary (at least its sid waddell), the walk ins could be alot better with the pro's correct music and the create a player could have more options for his/her appearance & thats why my headline is 10 dart finish instead of 9. but don't let that put you off coz it is a brilliant game! the only thing is on amateur im averaging 105, just won u.s open and won 18 sets to none & only lost 4 out of 40 legs. gonna have to notch up the difficulty. the gameplay is simple to use plus the multiplayer options include round the clock, cricket, 701, killer etc. so to conclude if you love darts then get this especially for this low price.

5.0 out of 5 stars simply brilliant, 16 Oct. 2009
phoenix nights is the perfect dvd to put on if you've had a rubbish day cause it just cheers you up. every episode is brilliant and theres loads of little jokes that you might not get first time round. i like the way the writers kept it as just 12 episodes and a pilot just like fawlty towers and the office. i personally think phoenix is one of the funniest things i have seen so obviously i recommend the box set
