5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!, 17 Jun 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: The Last Of Us (PS3) (Video Game)
I was skeptical. In fact, i told myself i would wait until this was much cheaper and buy it preowned but I put my hands up: I was wrong. This game is one of the best games i've ever played. Up there with Bioshock 1, Resident Evil 4, Fallout 3. The characters are the main pull here. Ellie is brilliant and just the small little quirks about her such as her practising to whistle or reading from her joke book only add to her character. Joel is tough, gritty, no-nonsense. He's a badass, but a believable one. The side characters are the best i've come acros in any game...they actually feel life-like. Naughty dog have blown Uncharted out of the water with this one. This took me 24 hours to complete...though i was taking my time and scavenging everywhere. Guns are great, particularly the bow and arrow (never thought i'd say that in a review but yes bow and arrow was just amazing) and the nail bomb. Niel Drukman...Naughty dog...I take my hat off to you. To give you an idea of how much i loved this game i went to work this morning having only 1 hour sleep. I was near the end and i had to know what was going to happen next. I pray for a sequel.

1.0 out of 5 stars Seriously?, 23 May 2013
I'm surprised at all the fuss over this book. Didn't like it. Didn't see the point in reading more than the 6 or 7 stories I tried before abandoning this. Ill stick to etgar keret.

Wasn't impressed at all. Loved bioshock 1. Bioshock 2 was very good and improved combat. This game just isn't fun. Only allowed to carry two guns? boring vigors. Forgettable plot. Dislikable hero in Booker.

I was surprised just how good these socks are. Very comfortable, great material and a nice bit of padding at the bottom. Love these. Will be buying a new pair in a different colour.

Doesn't work. Tried pumping football and if anything it was taking air out and not putting it in. Threw this in the bin.

2.0 out of 5 stars awful., 20 Nov 2012

Very Bad pair of headphones. Not worth anywhere over 100 for sure. Cheap plastic material, no base, very 'polite' as my friend put it on the ears. Will be upgrading to v-moda for sure. Another overrated pair of headphomes.

5.0 out of 5 stars A 'Review' to balance things out, 28 Sep 2012
This review is from: The Casual Vacancy (Hardcover)
# Note: i will delete this review once people start reviewing this book for it content as oppose to its price. Like another reviewer who has posted a 5 star review here, i'm an aspiring author myself. I'm not even a fan of harry potter as i've only read 1 book and half of JK Rowling's second book (still reading by the way, just have several others books on the go) but i admire what JK rowling has done for young people and the older generation. She has helped the industry massively and because of her talent she will help other authors as she has got people reading. Anyway, my ramble over, i'm dissapointed people are giving one star based on pricing. If it's too expensive, buy an alternative format, or better yet, just wait a little for the price to go down.

1.0 out of 5 stars God Awful, 26 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Worst Pair of Sennheiser's i've owned. Was shocked how bad these are. Sound quality is poor and very low with no bass whatsoever. I sat listening to the dark knight soundtrack and it felt like it was listening to it behind a sheet of glass. Just awful. My most trusted headphone company let me down. Considering this headphone cost 119 in store i'm puzzled as to why they believe they can go up against the likes of Dre beats with this quality. This should be a 30 pair of headphones.

Side note: the way the heaphone wraps around your head looks stupid. Like some sort of bug. Ugly design, even if it does fold clever.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre, 1 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Chaser [DVD] (DVD)
This film was a major disappointment. I love Korean films. I love love love Oldboy, love 3 Iron, and i like Man from nowhere but this was just boring. There was just nothing clever or interesting about it. Worth a watch but absolutely nothing special here. Hollywood can do their stupid remake for all i care now.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2nd album sydrome????, 2 Nov 2011
no. It's very good. Enough said. I love that this album is different from the first and yet retains the essence of Florence + the machine. The drums and the strings being one of them. Great voice, great talent. However, after a few listens i have to admit to preferring the first album. Maybe because it was my introduction to this band, but i think also because it had a few stronger songs, in particular 'blinding' of which i still love. That's just my opinion.
