5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful album, 4 April 2013
This review is from: For Now I am Winter (Audio CD)
Simply another outstanding album from olafur. I loved all of his previous offerings but this moves things onto another level with more electronics and vocals. (Arnor Dans (spelling) vocals are stunning).
The album gets better with every listen. An essential purchase.

Price: £10.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply stunning, 11 Nov 2011
This review is from: INNI (Audio CD)
What can i say about inni that you havent read in reviews already. All those who have seen sigur ros live are very lucky indeed. The band are on fire here and the record is excellent. Highlights for me are e-bow {untitled 6 off () } and the 15 minute long Popplagio {untitled 8 off () } the live versions here are breathtaking.

Hopefully we will be lucky enough to see a new album sooner rather than later but in the meantime this should keep sigur ros fans happy.

4.0 out of 5 stars a very good effort in the survival horror genre, 3 July 2009
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Ok this was my first ever silent hill game and why oh why did i wait so long to play one!! I found this game to be excellent and once i got used to the controls it got even better. Theres an introduction of a dodge button here giving you greater control over your character and your weapons and items are selected with the shoulder buttons and overall the control system works well!!

I wont reveal any of the plot but suffice to say there are plenty of scares and in one of the levels theres a quick time event sequence which is the best example of it ive seen in games as 9 times out of 10 button mashing is annoying. The music and sound effects again add further tension and frights and id give the music score and sound effects 5 stars.

Combat (again it took me a while to get used to it and timing dodges etc) is excellent and violent with the enemies showing their wounds when you slash them with the knife or axe etc. The enemies are genuinely unnerving and the cut scenes are excellent with pyramid head appearing in one particularly brutal scene.

One word of warning is that its quite tough in parts on hard mode and my advice to you would be to be careful when you save your game and dont be saving if you have little health/ammmo etc as i did this on level 3 when i had to fight a siam and almost had to restart the game but just about managed to fluke my way past it.

If your a fan of survival horror id recommend this game as you wont be dissappointed (although it isnt as good as dead space). Im off to try and see if i can get hold of all the previous games and i cant wait for the next in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best games ever, 6 Feb 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Fallout 3 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Without doubt this game is a masterpiece!!! an epic adventure with so much to do. Bethesda have created one of the best game worlds ever. Once you leave vault 101 and walk out into the capital wasteland you are about to embark on one of the best if not the best gaming experiences availiable. I cant believe some people have given this game 1-3 stars. If you havent bought this game go and buy it now (i bought it on release and have only finished it last week so be warned once you start playing be prepared to put the hours in)

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best games you will ever play, 19 Nov 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Dead Space (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
The first guy reviewing this game pretty much covered all the bases. Likewise i bought fable 2 the same day and it hasnt got a look in since (nor has gears of war 2 for that matter). If you are a fan of the horror/shooter genre this could probably be the best game you have ever played. One minor gripe that some reviewers have over the game is the repetitiveness and similar levels however they miss the point of the game!! Its the claustraphobic, tense atmosphere of being in a mining craft in the middle of space that builds up the tension to unbearable levels and is what will make you jump/scream on numerous occasions!!! Play this with the lights off and surround sound up to the max for a truly awesome gaming experience!!!
