Price: 33.31

5.0 out of 5 stars I'd Give it 6 Stars If I Could, 29 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
By far and away the best game I have played in a long long time, possibly the best game I have ever played.

The game is so diverse, underwater, in the sky, on the moon...need I go on? The graphics are superb and the storyline is second to none.

Buy this game, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goodbye, 14 Jan 2014
Well goodbye my old friend. Having been an avid fan since the beginning, watching all episodes and seasons in their entirety I feel I have came to know and love the characters. I'm really sad its all over, especially how it all ended! Dexter the Final Season is a fitting and brilliant end to this much loved series. Who would have thought a serial killer could be so affectionately admired? Well he is and I give absolute credit to the writers who have given such depth to all the characters including Dexter, Deb, Quinn, Batista...the list goes on. It has been an intense roller coaster of tension, murder, love and betrayal and I have loved every minute. Ignore anyone who has given this wonderful installment less than 4 stars...they obviously don't understand it.

Dead Lucky - Lord Lucan: The Final Truth
Dead Lucky - Lord Lucan: The Final Truth
by Duncan MacLaughlin
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A Compelling Read, 13 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved this book, couldn't put it down. I literally read it in 2-3 sittings. It tells the tale of Lord Lucan, missing for over 40 years (at the time of writing) following the grisly murder of his childrens Nanny, Sandra Rivett. Lucan was wanted by Police the world over and became the most wanted man in Britain. Convicted of murder in his absence this book details how the pompeous aritocrat may have ended up in Goa under the disguise of a reclusive old Hippy affectionately known by locals as Jungle Barry.
Yes its far fetched however the author Duncan MacLaughlin, a retired Scotland Yard Detective tells in detail the investigation he undertook to try and piece together the mystery surrounding the missing Earl. With photographic evidence and first hand witness accounts he presents an arguable case that Jungle Barry is in fact Lord Lucan. The man wanted for murder by British Police and on the run for over 40 years.
There are of course other sides to the tale and allot of press reports trying to discredit Duncan Maclaughlins reputation. Some stating he was in fact on the verge of disciplinary proceedings and even dismissal from the Police before his "retirement". Others have stated they in fact know who Jungle Barry is, a man from the North West by the name of Barry Haplin. Friends of Mr Haplin have stated they fell about laughing at the news their friend was being mistaken as the ellusive Earl.
All in all however I loved the book. Read if for yourself and make your own mind up.


Universal Soldier Day Of Reckoning [DVD]
Universal Soldier Day Of Reckoning [DVD]
Dvd ~ Scott Adkins
Price: 1.25

5.0 out of 5 stars Wasn't Expecting This, 7 Oct 2013
I didn't even know they had made another Universal Soldier but when I saw the dvd on the shelf at my local Blockbuster I thought well, I've watched all the others...why not. I'm very pleased I did as I wasn't expecting it to be so good.

Regeneration relaunched the franchise with a low budget super violent take on the previous overly produced Hollywood offerings. I loved this movie as it was raw, brutal and realistic. No fancy kicking or Kung Fu rubbish. Just real life frantic fight scenes to the death.

I am very pleased to say that all though Day of Reckoning is more glossy than Regeneration it follows the same format of sheer brutal action. Some of the scenes are genuinly shocking so this is really not for the faint hearted. The film however also has horror! The beginning of the movie is particularly spine chilling. Not what you would expect from a Universal Soldier movie.

Van Damme plays the villain brilliantly. I believe he is better in this type of evil role than he is playing the hero, it just seems to fit him better, he again demonstrated this in Expendables 2.

Lundgren as always is entertaining in his all American macho way and I believe we may have found a new action hero in the form of Scott Adkins. He can act and he can certainly fight. Very impressed with him and best of all......he's English!

An excellent movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stll Stands Up, 15 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Even now in 2013 this movie still stands up. I bought it to add to my collection, more just to have it than anything else. The action is great, the story is great, Arnie's one liners "knock knock", "get to the chopper" and more, are still, you guessed it....great.

Inferno: (Robert Langdon Book 4)
Inferno: (Robert Langdon Book 4)
by Dan Brown
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 9.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 12 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Robert Langdon returns in another thrilling adventure set in the world's cultural capital - Florence. Armed with only his intellect and encyclopaedic knowledge of history, art, symbolism and poetry he is tasked with stopping a "mad man" intent on culling, what he believes to be, the plague of the world - The Human Race.

Yes its similar to Da Vinci code and the Lost Symbol but who cares, it's a great read. Fun, gripping, shocking and educational. A must buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average, 11 July 2013
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
PLEASE BE LIKE DEAD SPACE....PLEASE BE LIKE DEAD SPACE....PLEASE BE LIKE DEAD SPACE....INSERT DISK INTO 360....PLEASE BE LIKE DEAD SPACE....GAME LOADING....PLEASE BE LIKE DEAD SPACE....MAIN MENU....LOOKS BASIC....MAYBE THEY SPENT ALL THE TIME DEVELOPING THE GAME PLAY?.... PLEASE BE LIKE DEAD SPACE....START CAMPAIGN....GAME LOADING....PLEASE BE LIKE DEAD SPACE....CHAPTER 1....OH NO. ITS NOTHING LIKE DEAD SPACE....

Unfortunately I have to agree with the other dissapointed reviewers here and say this game is a bit of a let down. I make the reference to Dead Space because Dead Space has set the standard of horror, and especially horror set in space, should be. Unfortunately Colonial Marines is no where near the same standard.

I remember the trailers over a year ago and at the time got very excited at the prospect of an Aliens game that would finally deliver. Unfortunately a huge opportunity has been missed here and the developers have churned out an average game that would have been acceptable on the PS2 or original xbox but definately not final stage 360.

The game graphics are the main problem. Everything has that smooth texture we were used to seeing with PS2 and xbox original games. Nothing has any real texture or real life grittiness. This for me is an immediate problem as part of the joy of gaming is how good the game looks. Unfortunately Colonial Marines is smooth and boring. Because of this the Aliens themselves lose their fear factor as they simply look like cartoons.

The story is ok and the voice acting is ok. The cinematic cut scenes however are terrible. In no way do you feel you are playing anything special. Far from it.
