5.0 out of 5 stars The Power and the Glory, 7 Dec 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony PlayStation 4 (PS4) (Console)
The machine is a Beast, Microsoft must be kicking themselves. My PS4 is Quiet, Professionally made, Smooth and slick. The games so far are very impressive indeed. Apart from some missing features, DNLA please, and Apps (YouTube etc) I really am struggling to fault the machine and I know it'll get better and the games will also get better. . . Exciting times people.

Finally, The new DS4 controller is a big improvement over the old DS3.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too weak!, 12 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sorry, whilst the light is quite bright, once in the car, fitted, it's almost non visible, only in dim light can anyone see you have your side lights on. I expected better to be honest, being LED but no. A brighter version however would be great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - Mostly, 12 Sep 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
There is only one negative for this game and I'll quickly get it out of the way. The game does not use the Full native resolution of the Vita which means the image, whilst good, is not as sharp as it could be. Right, that's it, the rest of the game is great. online is super with the daily tourney ( continues from Wed to the following Monday), the Lobby system carried forward from the PS3 version and when used with the Vita's Lobby Chat feature this really is a very social game. Id give it a 9/10 dropping that point for the non full Vita Resolution but that's about it, the rest is faultless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now this is Quality, 11 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered the Bluray version which also has the DVD edition included. The difference between the two, apart from the obvious picture quality improvement is the 5.1 HD DTS sound option which is excellent.
Anyhow, straight to it, I've watched this about ten times already and am totally hero struck at just how brilliant Radiohead is and just how much better The King of Limbs sounds here compared to the studio version. Utterly Brilliant, thank you Radiohead.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another beautiful day in the Corps....., 20 May 2011
For fans of the series, this rare guide is printed on decent paper, is very colourful with detailed ( if a little small ) maps and it does exactly what it sais on the tin. I think this game didn't get the following it deserves, the Single player campaign for all species is pretty decent and multi player is tense and quite nerve wrecking, Sound effects are spot on. So, A decent and collectable guide for fans of the films and the games.

4.0 out of 5 stars Co-op is excellent, 13 May 2010
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Lost Planet 2 (PS3) (Video Game)
First the good news, Co-op with friends doesn't get much better than this. Zero Lag, Clear Comms, Nice graphics, HUGE Akrids. perfect for co-op lovers. For those who loved co-op in Resistance 2 or Borderlands, then there's a chance you'll love Lost Planet 2 co-op.

Bad news, well single player bot's AI is a little rubbish at times as you end up having to complete objectives yourself as they're to stupid to carry them themselves, shame but not a game breaker by any account.

The ok news, well, the other online modes are just fine and whilst other games do things better, it's perfectly acceptable.

Taking everything into account, this jsut scrapes an 8/10 from me and thats due to the brilliant co-op mode.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Done Pandemic, 28 April 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: The Saboteur (PS3) (Video Game)
You know what, I love this game, It practically came out of nowhere, from Pandemic who also created the Mercenaries series and it's a fitting swansong as EA have, in their infinite wisdom, closed them down. I won't go into depth as others have already covered that but I will say this, If you like the idea of GTA4 in Nazi occupied Paris whereby your task is to bring down the German army practically singlehandedly, then this is your game. It's great fun and the amount of carnage you can cause is brilliant. Graphics are perfectly decent, sound is very good, atmosphere is also great and whilst some of the controls can be a little awkward on occasion, the game is so good you'll likely forgive them without thinking.

Yup, a bit of a suprise but a very pleasant one all the same. A decent 9/10 game only missing out on a higher score because Pandemic should of been allowed that extra bit of time to polish this gem.

Price as I write this is a snip over 20 delivered, a bargain !!

5.0 out of 5 stars For Me, this is K&D's finest, 1 Oct 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'll get straight to the point, After buying both DJ Kicks and The K&D Sessions along with this CD, and after listen to all of them many times, This CD raised itself head and shoulders above the other two, as excellent as they both are, remarkably, Conversions is just that little bit darker and deeper.

My one suggestion though, get yourself a decent bit of listening kit or if using headphones, Id recommend a nice pair of Sennheiser IE8's ( ensure you use earbuds that suit your ears!! ) as some of the bass on this CD will literally make your vision blur, Oh yes.

So, I've been listening to this CD for nearly a year now, almost non stop and I 'still' cannot put it back in it's case, not bad for a CD that came out some 13years ago !

Go on, Buy it, you really won't regret it :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars If you love Coen Brothers....., 4 Feb 2009
....then you'll probably enjoy this film. It's a bit of a slow burner that may take an age to suck you in but if you can survive the initial half an hour or so you'll likely love the film by it's conclusion. This is clever film making and the acting is excellent. Typical Coen Brothers through and through.

Why only 4 stars? Well I prefer 'Fargo', 'The big lebowski' and 'No country for old Men' which Id give 5 stars for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does exact what it sais it does, 22 Aug 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
paired this little beauty to Philips SHB7100 & Sennheiser PX-100 headphones. Sounds great with a rasonable radius which varies depending upon your environment. Battery life seems good, sound quality is great, no conplaints from me.

Why only 4 stars, ummm, ummm, well it takes ages to charge through the supplied USB lead... thats it really. Buy with confidence.
