if you read the instructions on how to use the start button for certain things (including selecting and just pausing) and have full battery on your wii remote (which you connect the device to)then you won't go wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars It may look kiddy,but trust me,even the adults watching with the kids will laugh their heads off!, 7 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Lego Movie [DVD] [2014] (DVD)
When i first saw the poster of this film after seeing cloudy 2,i thought to myself,'This is definitely gonna be a selling kind of film,like cars 2 was,but then they had this deal in the cinema we go to and my older sister thought we should go see the lego movie with her children,and me and some of my family came along too,because why not :).

Then the film started,and OH MY GOD,talk about judging a book by it's cover.This film is awesome,the characters are awesome (and funny),The story is awesome,The animation is awesome as it really looks like real mini figs moving about as if it's a high budget stop motion film, the music is awesome especially as it's got a song dedicated to the word.

4.0 out of 5 stars This game proves that travellers tales can make lego games not based off movies., 2 July 2014
This game proves that travellers tales can make lego games not based off movies.It has a cool Grand theft auto feel that is family friendly,since you're a cop and running people over won't kill them.Plus it uses the gamepad so well. in the game itself,your character uses a portable device that nearly looks like the gamepad (it's even the same colour as the basic pack's one) and you can use it as a gps,video caller and use it as an x-ray camera of some sought.
Overall,it's a great,challenging and humerus game. if you're new to wii u,i highly recommend picking up the lego city bundle wherever you can,and it's quite cheap as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars not a flawless game ,but better than what most online reviewers say of it!, 21 Jun. 2014
Please,don't listen to IGN or any of those so called 'professional gamers'! this may not be any ordinary sonic game,nor is it a really flawless one,but it will still give you a fun challange,speed wise and platforming wise.

The most notable thing about the gameplay is that sonic doesn't run normally.When just using the analog stick to move sonic,he'll just do a jog,but if you press the ZL button,he'll start to run,which i think should've been the other way round:sonic running normally,but having the ability to run slower with the ZL button if need be.
The homing attack is back once again,but this time,it's been updated both for the best and for the worst.When you destroy Eggman's badniks,you're not restricted to hitting one badnik at a time.now you can target to more badniks at the same time.What's wrong with this you may ask?Well it gives you less work for the player, when Targeted to a number of badniks and pressing just one button to kill them all.Plus,when you try to get to a ledge on the other side of the screen with the double jump (which first appeared in sonic colo(u)rs and has returned here)and targeted on a spring in the area you jumped from,you fly back and hit the spring,causing you to fly in a direction you didn't want to go in the first place.One a positive note,the homing attack now has a charging system where if you're fighting a boss or a big badnik like a caterkiller,you can charge up the target and when it reaches it's full power, the boss or badnik will take more damage than usual.

So over all,this is not a perfect sonic game,but comes really close and i mean really close.

Probably the best sandbox driving game i've ever played so far.it has a tiny menu you can get up while playing the game or a mission,and pick missions to play and cars to get.even if you don't have xbox live (which the box keeps advertising about),don't let it stop you from buying this great exciting game!

3.0 out of 5 stars Quite bad so it's quite funny too!, 7 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i got this dvd,mainly to test my region free dvd player,see what the subtitles said for each episode,since there isn't any on the US or UK,and to see the pointless and hilariously bad inspector gadget dvd tutorials in high quality. Apart from that, this dvd is quite obsolete,unless you want a short dvd to give you a sample of the series.
The episodes on the disc are:
.Super Sonic
.Sonic and Sally
.Sonic Racer
& Sonic & the Secret Scrolls if you win the trivia game

4.0 out of 5 stars A good enough book for your little sonic fans!, 7 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I found out about this book,I was amazed. Not only because there hasn't been another sonic annual since 1992, (as well as Where's Sonic,which had a new book a year ago),but also because of the new icon app gimic. This literally invades 70% of this entire book,and they're scattered all around,so you have to keep an eye out.
There's also character profiles of the eight characters in this book,as well as facts of Sonic and other characters(Though for some stupid,many random facts(mostly the Sonic ones) are scattered all around the book,much like the app icons i mentioned earlier.
In fact,i'll just explain these icons now I've mentioned it.these icons are supposed to be used for an app on tablet's and smartphones called Zappar. What it is is it's a special camera that has special coding when it picks up something with the app's logo, and if you keep the camera on the icon as the loading finishes,you get an interactive feature on the product that you've got,in this case,a book(Plus,I forgot to mention that this app is for lots of the 2014 annuals from the publisher of this book,Pedigree).the activities from this book range from getting sonic out of a maze,slide puzzles and character profiles....AGAIN :/.
There are also comics when you use the app on the icons in the comic book sections,where you will see comic adaptations of the games Sonic Colo(u)rs and Sonic Generations (AKA my favorite Xbox 360 game of all time :P) from Archie. The comics in the book,which are also from Archie are 2 parts of a story from the Archie comics,which doesn't make sense,seeing as how the sonic Archie comics aren't sold here.Also,in the comic,there are more characters from the games,which aren't in the rest of the book

Going back to the rest of the book,there is also a crossword puzzle, two true or false trivia's, a maze, a word search and the list goes on.

The look of the the book is really good,though some of the artwork for the characters and objects look out of place.For example,the pages that are dedicated to Eggman,like the maze and design your own robot,there's artwork of the gun wing,yet Eggman didn't make that robot.GUN did.

Overall,this is a pretty good book. It is more for children,but there are a few bits for older fans as well.
It's not mediocre but don't expect as much as other sonic books or mercandise


First 4 Figure - Figurine Sonic 8 cm - 5060029858971
First 4 Figure - Figurine Sonic 8 cm - 5060029858971

4.0 out of 5 stars very close to the original classic charactor, 5 Mar. 2014
This figure is one of the many sonic figures and statues and,like all the figures and statues,it defiantly has a good design that resembles the classic title character back in the megadrive days.
It's perfect if you want to start collecting sonic stuff and it's good if you want something on display,but i wouldn't recommend buying this for your son/daughter to play with.And if you do,tell them not to moves the arms,legs,etc or they'll brake.
