3.0 out of 5 stars avoid till the patches come out, 25 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nov 2014 - The story's promising and a lot of depth - but some ridiculously bad graphics / freezes / glitches. While the glitches aren't the end of the world it's not the best - clearly software companies are rushing the stuff out - "it'll just have to do - we'll put out a patch later"). Hopefully Bioware come out with a patch soon - See "Vash" review for a fix (which I have yet to try) which should help it run smoother on PS3. We all have to pay premium price for a game when it first comes out so I am disappointed in Bioware for letting their quality control slip.
All that said I'm actually enjoying it for all it's faults - would just look better in Skyrim's skin.
BUT - If you are swithering over whether to buy this or Skyrim - go for Skyrim every time. Looks great, plays great and has a great storyline(and has a couple of annoying glitches too btw!) and it's a lot cheaper right now.

Ultimate Self Working Card Tricks
Ultimate Self Working Card Tricks

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for confidence, 6 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had this a few days and am so pleased with it. A nice collection of self working card tricks - I only knew one of them, but it's done much better on the dvd. Very well made with clear presentation - and they give credit to the people who came up with each method (so you get some good background detail to do some googling). A couple of the tricks are simply staggering - the kind of card tricks that make you think "Well - I couldn't do THAT one!". Contact Colours is just awesome. You still need to do a bit of practise obviously, but that's about it - nothing too hard. Worth putting some time into this. Very suprised that some of these methods are out there for newbies to learn. Just ordered volume 2 straight away!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classy, 5 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tales Of Us (MP3 Download)
Love it. Love Goldfrapp. Wasn't overly keen on their last effort. Seventh Tree is an amazing record and they've surpassed that in my opinion. Her vocals are getting better and better too and with the classy music accompanying her it's just a pleasure to listen to. Humming the tunes already which is a good sign. Track 4 Ulla is doing my head in.... in a good way. Beautiful music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for the Vita, 6 Sep 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Was a fan of the original on the Playstation - very cutesy graphics but the mechanics behind the game are solid. It's highly polished and I'm throughly enjoying it. This is one of those great games to keep around your vita.

Decent futuristic storyline and I think they have the tone just right. The cast are very good. I look forward to seeing how it develops. Very promising so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars top deck, 21 Sep 2012
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Beautifully designed cards - slightly macabre but definately cool. Great USPCC quality as usual. I've ordered a few packs to give as presents to friends as they're very striking. Easily my favourite deck. Good work by bigblindmedia.

Cool deck - great quality as always from USPCC/MagicMakers - I like the Skull design - subtle and not too showy. Comes with a few nice gaff cards too which is always good. (if you want a showy deck buy the fantastic Karnival Dose set!) Karnival Dose Redux Limited Edition Playing Cards

4.0 out of 5 stars Ending didn't bother me., 28 Mar 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I really enjoyed it. Beautifully made game - they have a lot to wrap up and I found the ending perfectly fine. Some of the reviewers giving it one out of five and talking about ruination are over-reacting in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the board game, 12 Feb 2010

This review is from: Monopoly Deal Card Game (Toy)
I got this to take away on short breaks (mostly because of the numerous 5star reviews on amazon)This is a superb variation on the Classic monopoly game. Very easy to pick up and incredibly addictive. All you need is a table big enough to lay out your property card / money cards etc. To be honest, I think I can safely say that i won't be playing the board game again.

5.0 out of 5 stars a VU cover, 8 Dec 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nicely filmed live/studio recording. Plenty of banter etc in between songs. I love the new album so this is a real treat. Great to see the band playing songs I'm now quite familiar with. They also do a great cover version of the Velvet Underground's Oh Sweet Nuthin.
Well worth getting if you like the Crowes.
