Terrible paper quality and very poor image quality. Could print out the picture from my personal printer and save 8 pounds.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why is this released?, 30 Aug. 2010
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
I usually despise reviews of games that focus on issues of DRM instead of the actual game itself. But being a fan of the last 2 ship sims and being a Deck Officer myself I bought the game in eager anticipation fueled by the released videos shown in the last few weeks. What I found was something entirely different. Steam, while functional enough usually, will mostly refuse to accept any product key. And when I had got past this and installed the game, both on a laptop and a gaming PC I still couldn't get it to run. The no menu, infinite ocean bug stopped my playing on my laptop and a problem with steam meant I couldn't play on my PC. This is a poor example of a game. I expected better from Vstep, and I expected better from Paradox.

4.0 out of 5 stars Take the war to a new level, 27 Feb. 2009
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Like its big brother COD 4 on the DS revolves around that fictional war that included a (must be going on 100 years old) Major Price, Except this time you are in control of an SAS operative from the other team that assaulted the other tanker in the Bering sea. The game works surprisingly well on the DS and it's for the most part a great companion to its bigger brother. The main fault is that like it's bigger brother it's over to quickly and leaves you wanting more.

3.0 out of 5 stars A broken series, a couple more bells and whistles, 27 Feb. 2009
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Smackdown Vs Raw 2009, is pretty much any other SvR apart from a few more animations and superstars. The game engine is old the graphics are becoming outdated, the gameplay is tired. The loyal fans of the WWE really do deserve another game, we've been playing this one since at lease 2001. The much hyped tag-team revamp is basically the ability to hot-tag a parter. and while the Road the Wrestlemania mode is fun the CAW options are vastly underdone...We could do with Day Of Reckoning 3 pretty soon

4.0 out of 5 stars The Best of Paradox, 26 Feb. 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Apart from Paradox there are few gaming companies that always seem to release gem after gem, (The CA being the only other one coming to mind). Crusader Kings is the Hearts of Iron of the middles ages, the closest thing there is to ruling your own Kingdom (or smaller province). The best way to discibe it would be to imagine the turn based empire building game made famous by the Total war games, make it real time and turn the dail up to 11. essentially an open ended game, you want to expand your empire, to do this you need to either go on the warpath around Europe and the Middle East (too many wars against Catholics and you'll get Excommunicated, so choose those targets well) or the long way, by marrying off daughters and sons and using an assasin eventually you can inherit different provinces. While there are similarities to say Hearts of Iron the gameplay is varied and different enough for Kings to hold its own in the grand stratergy genre, a game that truely stood out, I wasn't expecting as much as I found with this game but I was surprised

there is no manual, but if you are going to buy the game then I assume you have played HOI of any other Paradox game, so it's easy to pick up, plus there are tutorial videos on Youtube to show you how.


Wrestlecrap: True Stories of the World's Maddest Wrestlers
Wrestlecrap: True Stories of the World's Maddest Wrestlers
by R.D. Reynolds
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great, 25 Feb. 2009
An enjoyable book that details the rise and fall of some of wrestling's oddest gimmicks. Problem is the same author has a book out called 'The Death of WCW' well this book seemed to detail the fall of WCW enough that another book on the subject would seem irrelevant (but then I haven't read that book, will have too.) Plus the author seems to have a grudge against Vince Mcmahon and never passes a chance to belittle him. But the book generally is enjoyable and well worth a look.
