4.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the minor complaints - this is the best of its type!, 27 Sept. 2010
I'll begin by saying there are always going to be the 'die-hard' gamers who will find faults with any new game, especially one which has been so eagerly awaited as this one. However, these don't spoil the game to the extent that it deserves a one or two star rating by any means. The game is visually stunning and will be a challenge for people of all abilities - the difficulty settings allow you to adapt this to your liking. I know a little about F1, but I bought this one to see how realistic they could make it. Except for the disappointment of the not-so-visually-stunning crashes and damage to cars (something I was particularly looking forward to), everything else seems excellent. The detail of the tracks, cars, teams and weather are wonderfully done and the playability is awesome. For the tame and boring, there are best-line markers on the track for you to follow, automatic gearboxes and automatic braking systems. For the more adveturous, you are able to take all of these away. It is difficult to master at first, but once you get the hang of it, you begin to enjoy. Career mode is good - there are options to take the full weekend of racing at each track or you can skip practise sessions and qualifying and jump straight into the race itself. Point scoring system is accurate as are driver names, teams and rules. Rule breaking can be over-picky at times, but as it is a same for all on Xbox Live, I suppose it is fair. Racing friends and other maniacs on Xbox Live can be a pleasure and a hinderance. The 'tidy' racers play fair and overtake fairly, while there are some who crash, barge and nick the back of your car in order to win. It is all good fun in the end and there are no doubt hours of tension online as you battle it out in the track. With the vast variety of tracks and difficulty settings, this game could prove to be one to return to time after time. There are minor problems, such as unrealistic AI car times and a few delayed commentator comments, but these are also true of many other games, not only racing ones. True, it is annoying, but does this make me want to throw the game into the bin? No. It is a lot of money to buy new, so maybe it is worth waiting a while for the 'new factor' to ware off. I'm not an F1 super-fan by any stretch of the imagination, but this is a very good game and tribute to the sport in my opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value hat, 23 Sept. 2009
This review is from: Plastic Cowboy Hat (Toy)
Used this hat as part of a cowboy outfit during a stag weekend. Did the job and looked good. Plastic but looks like felt on top. Handy string for wearing round the neck. Excellent value although might not be durable in the long run.

5.0 out of 5 stars Documentaries at their best, 12 Jan. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This collection is an excellent tribute to Louis Theroux's work over the past decade or so. His unique style of interviewing is great. He puts himself in the most awkward of scenarios and manages to make his audience laugh, think and react in ways only he could. A mixture of well-known 'celeb' interviews and 'weird culture' documentaries makes this collection a real insight into how people live. The DVD includes hours of interesting viewing for Theroux fans or for those people out there who are yet to experience this talented man at work. Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars All you need, 6 Mar. 2005
This review is from: Hama Star 61 Tripod (Camera)
In brief, if you want a tripod that is lightweight, compact, versitile and easy to use, this is all you need. It even has a tidy bag to carry it on your shoulder. It looks very stylish, has all the basic functions that you'd wnat, and only takes a minute to set up. Its extending and compressing range is impressive. It is sturdy and well-built. I use it for a camcorder, and the spirit-level really helps if you want a solid anf flat picture. Its clamps secure and keep the camcorder steady and solid. I'm sure it beats many other models for price and performance. A very good buy, and is a steal at the price offered by amazon.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the original, 15 Jan. 2005
Having seen The Mummy and enjoyed it, I was excited to see how a sequel would fair. The first was action packed and very entertaining. It was quite different from any other film I'd seen, and the storyline was well thought up. Unfortunately, the second, in my opinion, was less so. The novelty of the original had worn off, and I was disappointed to see that nothing much had been changed. You still have the action mixed in with a little mild horror, but the storyline was less interesting. Having seen the first film, you could predict the outcome of events in the second quite easily, therefore any element of suspense was lacking.
However, I must admit that the film kept me occupied for its duration. It's easy to follow, and doesn't ask you to keep constant track of things from one minute to the next. Some cheesy lines or phrases are unavoidable in films like this one. Personally, I believe these add to the character and nature of the film.
In brief, if you are expecting something new and original to succeed the first film, forget it and this might not be for you.
If you're looking for 'more of the same' and just want a film that's easy to follow and doesn't make your brain hurt from complicated plots and storylines, this will be right up your street. For the price Amazon has set the dvd, you can't really go wrong anyway.
