5.0 out of 5 stars Think its a winner, 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an album I have been waiting for for a long time. I would call it a modern update of the old Sabres of Paradise formula that Mr Weatherall created all those years ago. The groovey basslines and the dubby use of fx sound great. They harken back to the old days while having moved on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game but ..., 31 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
SP - TSOT is a great game, as you would expect having had direct input from Stone and Parker. My only complaints? Considering you can walk from one end of Los Santos to another without a loading screen, here you cannot even walk one block without one. That is the only thing stopping it feeling like a real episode of SP. Then there is the matter of the loading/saving of games. When you save a game, it just makes a copy of the last auto save, which may have been a battle or two ago. I guess they were being "ironic" with this. Still very recommended though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nearly perfect, 29 Nov 2013

I finished the story mode last night and can say that it is way better than GTAIV. While that had a bunch of generic Mafia families, this has the FBI, mercenaries, Triads and power hungry millionaires. This is more your 80s Arnie/Bruce buddy movie than the more gritty art-house of IV.

Pro
Big map with lots to do.
Nice variety of missions.
Interesting characters.
Lots of re-playability.

Cons
Heists are a bit of a let down. Not a patch on taking out a camp in Far Cry 3.
Auto aim makes it a bit too easy. Left trigger to select next target and right trigger to fire. Repeat till all the red dots disappear. Seriously, turn it off.
Out of about 40+ hours it crashed twice and stuttered about 3 times.

I completed the story at around 70% overall, so there is a good third of the game to explore. On-line looks fun as well from what I have played of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing mistake on my part, 5 July 2013
This review is from: Blackbird (Audio CD)
So i brought this CD mistaking the band for the Carolina Chocolate Drops. Easy mistake as I was only vaguely aware of both groups and they both had the word drop in their names. Glad i did though as this CD is amazing. It starts off very dubby and soulful but by the end it has gone very housey and electronic. I gather they are a proper band so i can imagine them jamming some of these grooves out for hours before they record them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dubious bonus disc, 2 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The main album is good but the bonus "live" disc is really just Mr P shouting and screaming over a tinny drum machine for an hour. One of those times when, i guess, you really had to be there.

4.0 out of 5 stars First time COD player ..., 13 Dec 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Never played any COD or BF games before as I assumed they were primarily multiplayer and that didn't really appeal to me. Got caught in the hype though and ended up purchasing COD-MW3 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The campaign plot is really silly but very good fun. It keeps you on your toes and doesn't make you feel like you are being forced to do anything you wouldn't want to. For an amateur like me we are talking 25+ hours to play the campaign through on a few different levels. The spec-ops section gives you lots of little tasks (alternate scenes from the campaign) that you can play over and over again. There is also a "horde mode" as games feel they need one these days. It's so much fun I have even signed up for xbox live again.

If this is your 4th COD game then you will probably have to think carefully about getting it. If it is your first then go for it, you won't be disappointed.

Compared to some iPod battery replacement kits I have had in the past, this one felt really cheap. The plastic tool was a bit too soft to be of any use really.

4.0 out of 5 stars Do you like Robotron or Smash TV?, 26 Aug 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
If so, then you will probably enjoy this game. Don't kid yourself its particularly deep or anything. You start a level and go from "room" to "room" killing everything in sight. Eventually you get to the last "room" and you fight a boss of some sort. As long as you have killed everything up to this point, the boss is easy.

You have dozens of Mechs and dozens of characters. You can build your own Mech or customise an existing one, however there are no real instructions to explain how or why you would do this. Plans? No idea.

As for the cutscenes and characters talking through the fights, well there ought to be a way of turning them all off. They are the longest and most banal conversations you have ever heard.

Still, quite fun and probably worth 4 starts.

3.0 out of 5 stars It is ok., 25 July 2011
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars

I only got it as it was cheap and I thought it would show off the 3d to good effect. In all honestly, the game is a bit too simple and a bit too fast to appreciate the 3d. You are always going round corners and changing direction which makes it a bit hard on the eyes. The two other mini games are ok but not as good as the games they try to emulate.

One to avoid. Unless of course you are the age it is aimed at, in which case it is probably great fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love It., 17 Jan 2011

This review is from: Liumin (Audio CD)
It is a weird one but a good one. Sort of deep house with an experimental twist as there are field recordings from japan mixed in with it.
