1.0 out of 5 stars Its no COD/BF or Halo Killer, 30 Nov. 2012
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Well where to start, the Multi Player is terrible, very few players on and you can never find a game, it search's for games then pops you into a room on your own for 20 mins and you might get 1 or 2 players join, but they leave after a min, when you do get to play a game, it feels very sluggish, as if your char has got a 100 lb back pack on.

The single player is ok, but like most games it has it's flaws.
Best thing to do is visit the Ubisoft website and head to the forums and search down to the Far Cry 3 section, and look at the threads being made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 4 Aug. 2012
I brought this card after my Nvidia 9600 GSO decided to part ways and die.
What can I say about the GTX 550 ti, the best buy so far for a graphics card, I don't play many PC games nowadays, but I do play Skyrim and Diablo 3 and Anno 2070on PC,
Skyrim now plays on all high / Ultra settings and Diablo 3 plays on all High settings, Anno 2070 on all high settings and thats a resource hugger of a game, and with the 3 ports of VGA / DVI / HDMI you wont go wrong.

All in all a great card for the price. A must buy for the budget gamer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for video playback and thats about it., 4 Aug. 2012
For the price tag of £23 you wont go wrong with this card for your videos, but make no mistake this is not a Graphics card if you want to play games on.
Even with a little overclocking it still will only run the older games with a fps of around 30 - 40 you wont be able to run Skyrim on it unless you want 2 fps.
It will play Diablo 3 but with low settings and major fps issues making your gaming experience a nightmare.
It will also shut off your on board sound if thats what you use, as it installs its own sound to use through the HDMI port, if this is not a problem for you then all is good,
if this is a problem for you, you will need to enter the BIOS setup of your PC and make sure that Enable on board sound is Enabled from the default setting then the BIOS will over run the HDMI setting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product but delivery was...., 29 July 2012
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First off the product is great my 4 year old loves it, everyday he is on it. The items are just the right size for him.

Now the part regarding the delivery, I ordered this product along with 2 other items and have them all dispatched at the same time, when I got the conformation email and who was delivering it my heart sank. As soon as I saw HDNL / Yodel in the e-mail that was it, we have ordered goods from amazon and other companies that use this delivery company out of 8 items now I have only ever received 2 of them undamaged or they never turned up, I was even lied to for 3 days from this company as to the whereabouts of Diablo 3 that I ordered for a B'day gift it never showed after being told for 3 days it was going to be with me that day. Amazon where great to be fair to them we had a full refund and a £5 gift voucher on the account so I am not having a go at amazon, but be aware that your goods may or may not turn up and if they do they may be damaged.

HDNL never even tried to deliver this package to our house they took it to a house 5 doors down, they did not even put a card through the door to say what they had done, if it were not for a the kind neighbour I would never have known they had been.

2.0 out of 5 stars No Surprises, 1 Dec. 2011
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
Well MW3 is an OK game, if you are looking for something different from MW2 then don't buy MW3 as it is near enough the same game, just different maps, weapons, it is still using Id Tech's 3 engine to run the game which is what MW2 used, and considering RAGE uses ID Tech 5 it really does show with the quality of Graphics.
From The Multiplayer side of things, the COD franchise seems to be slowing down and it is full of players that now just want to sit up a corner or in a bush and camp for 20 mins to try and get kills, gone are the days when playing a COD game like COD1 used to be fun, yes MW3 is fun for a certain amount of time. I read an article in a magazine that Sledgehammer Games who made MW3 are glad to see the back it, and said it should now be left alone as a game.
Overall, a nice little game for a very short period of time. You won't enjoy this passed the first 20 levels on Multiplayer, and thats coming from a COD fan since Back in 2002 when COD 1 was here. I have since traded my copy of MW3 in for Skyrim and glad I did.

2.0 out of 5 stars Numbers dwindling, 9 Dec. 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Medal of Honor (PS3) (DVD-ROM)
I pre-ordered MOH from amazon, it arrived, and I played it, it was great at first, Great graphics, great sounds, and if your team played as a team it was a brilliant game. Then after maybe 2 weeks when more people got the game thats when it went downhill, 12 v 12 and 8 - 10 would be snipers, so if you are playing a team based game then that leaves 2 - 4 of you trying to get the objective, while being picked off by the other teams snipers, this became very boring after a game or 2. On release the online number have dropped from around 24,000 to only just under 1,000 sometimes during the week, then rises to around 3,500 at weekends, not sure if this is UK numbers or max number for UK and Europe.
All in all, a great game to start with then goes downhill very fast.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I brought this game after seeing some of the video's on youtube, the game came as per delivery instructions, but when I was installing the game the serial number supplied on the instructions did not work, I called up Ubisoft support line who were very helpful, after a few pictures of the serial number and receipt, they sent me a new serial code to my email address, all in all Great game and great fun to play, I would recommend this game to any RTS fan, although it does differ to some RTS games out there it is still a great game.

5.0 out of 5 stars 24 - Not to be missed., 1 Sept. 2002
24 is one of the best T.V / DVD purchase's I have made to date.
Set in the world of Jack Bauer an agent for the CTU, ( Counter Terrorist Unit ) it follows Jack through a 24 hour day and what has to be done to save the life of a U.S Senator.
The camera work is some of the best seen of late and cannot be faulted. The action scenes are full on, and the guess work is always on top of you, when you think you know who it was it turns your world around and calls you a liar.
Get this now you will not be disapointed.
