3.0 out of 5 stars ... agree with the reviewers comments about the dlc being fantastic, you get a player emblem, 10 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not sure I agree with the reviewers comments about the dlc being fantastic, you get a player emblem, a new star cruiser and a couple of other objects, as for the vanguard armoury, you can only unlock it at level 5 and purchase with in game tokens!
Campaign is fun and varied but gets repetitive very quickly, multiplayer is fun but with only four different game modes, very empty.
For a reported game that's had over £300 mil spent on it, not highly impressed.
SCHOOL BOY ERROR, should of brought the standard edition.

2.0 out of 5 stars Falls well below expectations, 4 Jan 2014
I wanted a larger more up to date unit than my old samsung 40". Decided to opt for this model. After reading other peoples reviews I was swayed.
Ultimately I made a mistake.
Picture quality wise, very un-impressed, It suffers from terrible motion judder, despite turning all functions off.
Motion blur is pretty much abysmal too.
The unit seems to change picture quality daily, by this I mean quality,clarity, colour depth seems to reset itself every time i turn the unit off.
Old TV was a 100hz refresh rate, this unit it 200, yet really doesn't portray that.
I can't really find any positives about this model, it may be I have a faulty unit.
Samsung have been contacted, and an engineer is due to visit.
Bottom line is..........I paid good money for this TV, it doesn't work as advertised.
Understandably I'm frustrated at that fact.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another cracker from samsung, 14 Sep 2013
Samsung have done it again, another quality product.

First things first, it's always a tricky situation buying anything that you can't see/hear.
So after reading reviews on this particular soundbar (all positive), I decided to pop down to my local Currys/pc world and listen for myself.
I Sneakily turned my bluetooth function on my phone on, and started to listen to music through my phone onto the soundbar, wow, impressed. I asked for the remote so i could play around with the available functions and it really doesn't disapoint, the base was very rich, and the sound very crisp. Plenty of functions.
Purchased, got home, decided to try it out on a movie (Decided on wrath of the titans), VERY VERY impressed. Makes the film much more engrossing with a decent sound.
It's also a huge plus point that the sub is wireless. Can have it anywhere in the room.
For a price tag of just over £200, can't go wrong.
Would recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wrong Case., 10 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered a Samsung Galaxy S4 case and a HTC one arrived. Clearly someone wasn't paying attention. So I can't review this product I can only rate the HTC one. It doesn't fit, so it's a 0.

UPDATE...............having contacted the seller and discussed what was wrong they sent me out a new case free of charge.
Case fits very well. Recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars It gets the thumbs up., 6 July 2013
Having not being a fan of the star trek series/Films up until I watched the first outing of JJ Abrams re-make, I was very much looking forward to this sequel. I wasn't disappointed. Great casting, Superb SFX, a twist of humour thrown in, and money well spent. No need to watch in 3d like many other films. Looking forward to the next instalment.

1.0 out of 5 stars How on earth., 6 July 2013
Probably one of if not the worst film I have watched.
What ruins it is not Smith Snr, but Smith Jnr. Awful acting, awful CGI. Should of been titled "HOW ON EARTH".

3.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for, 27 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Basically you get what you pay for, Having read the reviews about this I was swayed and thought, "why not".
It's too tinny, the speakers somewhat sound muffled and it does echo esp with the surround sound button pressed.
A mediocre system. Hence the price tag.

Only positive I can get from this is that the subwoofer isn't too bad. Not too bad at all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Has justice done injustice Justice!!??, 21 April 2013
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was pretty optimistic about Injustice Gods Among Us.
Having seen the on-line vidoes and adverts, i was expecting a game that would better It's older brother (mk9).
If i'm being honest, in some ways it does, and in some ways it doesn't.

The characters are a plus point, loads to choose from and each have plenty of varying moves and combo's.
But that only works well if the combo's are fluid and easy to execute.......Which in my opinion, they aren't.
It just isn't as fluid as Mortal Kombat 9, the combo's are harder to pull off, and the character movement is a little slow.
But with hard work and perserverance, the satisfaction of pulling off a 15 hit combo is satisfying.

Another Negative point, is that i was expecting some fatalities, sadly there isn't. But it makes a nice surprise that you can interact with the backgrounds.

Online play is similar to MK9, King of the hill, Join a room, etc etc, nothing new.
But the missions and tasks are very in depth and will keep you occupied for some time.
If you have a couple of friends that have the game, then it can be fun, you can even practice on-line without damaging your stats, pretty cool.

If i had to compare this to MK9 i'd say that this falls a little short.
But it's New and i'd say, give it time, it may grow on you.

Bottom line, it's ALRIGHT, looking back i wouldn't of paid £40 for it, it's a wait a few months and pay £25 or lower Game.
It could have been better, Could have been worse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic trilogy, 29 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Doesn't Matter how many times you sit through and watch the films, they are as enjoyable as the first time you watched them.
In my personal opinion, the best of the bunch is the final part.
