5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Brilliant, 18 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought it last night and couldn't put it down until I'd finished it in the early hours. Couldn't stop laughing either as its brilliantly blunt and full of cracking happenings.

Well recommended to anyone with a sense of humour and who isn't blinded by PC nonsense. It will most definitely brighten the day up and have you in stitches.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quick learning but let down by a very unreliable program, 30 May 2012
The RS learning process itself is effective and my abilities in my chosen language have progressed greatly. The prompts and hints are useful and it helps get things right. My main gripe with RS stone is the fact barely a week goes by when there isnt one or more error messages causing the program to shut down and the RS tech support is just terrible. I dont know what to suggest instead of RS but I'm certainly going to be looking elsewhere.

The price of RS software just isnt justified considering the problems

3.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant.......when it works, 6 Jun 2011
Bought this to help with my studies and initially (and sporadically since) it was rather darn good. Alas since the first time I used it I've been plagued by technical troubles ranging from microphones contantly not being detected by the RS Software, database going out of date for no reason, the software failing to load etc. And RS's customer support is generally not very helpful as they are seemingly not naturalised English speakers making help difficult.

Usually the solution has eventually arrived after numerous restarts and tweaks but for this price it shouldnt be happening. A real shame as when it works RS is brilliant and Iv learned a lot in a short time

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the , 27 Feb 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Fantastic fun this was. Harder than the CoD games, better plot and more engrossing. Well worth the cash I spent and I'm glad I bought it. I only buy 1 or 2 games a year due to lack of cash and this is one I'd definately recommend

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun but terribly flawed, 2 Nov 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This game has gotten great reviews or awful reviews and to be honest they are all right, so bear with me here. Its a great game Idea with a dark, amusing plot but the developers have clearly been lazy and not done the pre-release work to a high enough standard. Iv had the game a week and it usually causes the ps3 to fully freeze up every hour or so. As released the game is never worth the asking price and both Bethesda and Obsidian should be ashamed of themselves but then, they both have a track record of unfinished or harf cocked releases.

RIGHT.........Negatives over with............the good side is that this game has a fun, immersive plot and gives you a feel we got from the old westerns involving clint eastwood. The massive world to explore is full of fantastic creatures and places to see, savor and blow up :)

The various quests are often quirky and darkly humerous with some cunning twists and turns and although there isnt the major voice acting stars this time.....it does have Worf from Star Trek involved :)

All in all its a potentially brilliant game concept that although fun when it works was let down only by the lack of common sense and professionalism of its creators. Peace out
