4.0 out of 5 stars Browny Points, 24 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sister-in-law wrote to tell me how much she loved it - how it takes pride of place in the living room - how it smells Devine etc.

But Sister-in-laws always say that don't they?

5.0 out of 5 stars Server problems aside......A TRUE LABOUR OF LOVE FROM MAXIS, 10 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sim City (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Yes - I've had numerous server connection problems too - but the situation seems to be stabilizing and getting much better.

When you can play for a length of time you begin to see what a phenomenal piece of games design this is. The new interface, graphics and sound system all testament to where we're at after 40 years of a developing PC games industry. Simcity 2013 oozes sophistication and class at every turn.

Its also a much more forgiving experience than Sim City 4 because they've finally managed to implement a beautifully unobtrusive reminder/help system - so even if there's a thousand things to do - there's always a way of finding out what they are and what to prioritise.

I know its hair-pullingly frustrating when you can't play a game some of us have been waiting for years for - but trust me - the wait will be worth it - this is SIMCITY for 2013 and close to what I always dreamed of.

NOTE: You will need a high-spec computer to see the game how it was intended. I'm running it on an Alienware M18X with 2 Nvidia 580Ms in SLI with 32GB RAM and have to knock it down from Ultra to High to get a silky smooth frame rate.

4.0 out of 5 stars A thinking man's 'The Thing'., 17 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Grey [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Don't expect non stop, cheesy action. This is a brutal and often thoughtful rumination on man vs nature, mortality and existentialism. I've never really rated Neeson but here he fits the bill admirably with an assured, nuanced performance. A mention must also go to the Japanese cinematographer's work which at the high resolutions of blu-ray look stunning.

It's a bargain at £7. Don't be fooled by the way it was marketed - it's so much better than another simple 'Neeson-Actioner'.
