4.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable game, 19 Jan. 2012
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
First off, online is still alive but there's not many people online as you'd expect. You can be playing a game online within 1 minute of entering team deathmatch, the other modes are pretty much deserted. Also watch out for hackers, there are still some sad cases out there who think it's fun to ruin other peoples experiences with the game. Zombies provides a fun distraction, single player is worth playing but can be difficult, and also if you can get into a co-op campaign game they're fun too. I wouldn't bother buying any map packs, they're expensive, overrated and the players have moved onto Black Ops and MW3.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best component cable, 19 Jan. 2012

This is the best component cable available that you can buy, compared to other cables this dominates all of them. The price is pretty expensive BUT you get what you pay for. I bought it to use with my Hauppauge HDPVR I got at Xmas, have a look at some of the videos here, quality is supreme - [...]

4.0 out of 5 stars Involving, But LONG., 10 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rainbow Six (Paperback)
This book is good to read, has interesting characters, a decent plot, but it's so DAMN LONG. I haven't read this for about a month because frankly it moves at a snails pace. You have to have the patience of a Japanese monk to get the most out of this book. So yes, I would recommend this, but only if you're under 60. If you're over 60, you'd probably be dead by the time you get near the end of this. Seriously. Well done to those who HAVE read it, but me? I prefer a book that has narrative, story, all that good stuff, but doesn't take 2 years to get to the bleedin' point.

2.0 out of 5 stars Meh, 10 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a boring book, there's no getting away from that. I must have read about 3 or 4 chapters but the 1st person storytelling grates immensely. I did this, I knocked that guard out, I felt annoyed, blah blah blah blah blah. I thought this would be a good book but I was wrong, and presumably the other books are the same in terms of the narrative. Don't waste your money, and don't even waste your time looking at the preview pages if there are any.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Restoration, Perfect Films, 10 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm glossing over the films because really, you want to know what the quality is like. Well, it shames most modern films from the 2000s on DVD, with a razor sharp picture for such old films, giving you the closest experience possible to the original shoot. The visual quality in the background is astounding, showing you reactions of characters you may have missed previously, and the colours all blend together for a satisfying mix of contrast, clarity and sharpness. I already own the DVD boxset but the quality on that now is abysmal in comparison to this Bluray set. For 2 of the greatest films ever made, I'd happily pay double this price to see them again, the 3rd film not so much. Well worth getting for film lovers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gets Better The More You Read Of It, 10 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
To start with, for the first 75-100 pages, it's quite repetitive, with a 'get target, kill target, obtain proof of kill, get target, kill target etc', with Altair reporting back to his master after each kill then onto another guy before the whole process starts again. But as you keep reading it does get better, with a satisfying end setting the scene perfectly for the forthcoming game in November. The writer is dependable for a decent story, even if the 2 previous books essentially copied the games like for like. I suppose this book does as well to some degree but I haven't played the original so it was a decent read for me. I'd definitely recommend this if you're looking to enter videogame book territory, although perhaps Bioshock Rapture should be your starting place.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Entry, 10 Sept. 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
It's definitely a solid entry in the series, probably not a memorable one because it's hard to enjoy it these days with the likes of Battlefield 3 not far off, but it improved a lot on previous entries in the series, and gave you the ability to land anywhere on the map to complete your objectives the way you want to. Just try to land near the green smoke or prepare to jump again after a swift and brutal death. Checkpoints are erratic at best, if you die then there's an 80% chance you'll have to restart the whole level again, so make sure you use cover as tactically as possible and save up grenades for clearing out small areas. I still haven't completed it, but it's on my list of games to finish so eventually I'll know how the game ends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb., 10 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely superb hard drive, it's very cheap but it's not nasty, it works a treat. I used it to transfer my data from an old PC to a new one, but transferring programs is a lot harder than I thought it'd be. Might have to connect both PCs together with a data transfer cable, but enough of that. This is the hard drive to get if you want a decent backup HD, superb.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun Game, But Poorly Executed, 10 Sept. 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Homefront (PS3) (Video Game)
Generally this game is good fun to play, but the short single player and moderate multiplayer are hindered by the game engine, which feels ancient. No idea what engine it is but it's hard to get a real flowing game in Multiplayer because of how clunky it feels. I'm just used to Call of Dutys fast free flowing engine, referring specifically to COD4, and ignoring the later games. The aiming is more a 16 point system, and I just find it hard to adjust to that. There's no 360 degree aiming here, it feels clunky and cheap. It's fun to play when you start racking up the kills, and when you're not dying in single player, which by the way is pretty tough to complete even on normal. I would recommend, but try to buy it new and cheap, otherwise you'll have to pay over £6 for a network pass to play online.


Scarface: Scarred For Life
Scarface: Scarred For Life
by Dave Crosland
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars It's not a bad comic, 10 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's not a bad read at all, you just have to sort of ignore the very ending of Scarface and imagine a slightly different ending where he .... no I won't say. Be warned though that there's extreme content within the novel as you'd expect, including an 'interesting' use of a colostomy bag. A specific Duke Nukem phrase comes into play here. This is worth a read, you're not getting much story but it's passable stuff. Try to get it cheap though because you could read this within half an hour and then stick it on a shelf for 4 years.
