3.0 out of 5 stars Iron Maiden turned dissapointing., 6 Sept. 2004
This review is from: X Factor (Audio CD)
I'm a massive fan of Iron Maiden. While listeing to Rock in Rio, i heard sign of the cross, one of Maiden's greatest songs. So i decided to buy the album. Unfortuately, the singer was Blaze Bayley, and he wasn't too much of an impressive singer. Of course he had to contend with Bruce but even the feel of the music is different, it feels dead. There is no livelyness to this album at all. It only got a three star rating 'cause sign of the cross is on it but if you only want that song i highly recommend getting Rock in Rio, where Bruce sings it without flaw and the music is awesome.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as the first!, 6 Jan. 2004
Although it's not a made up story it still gives a proper over view of the whole situation in China around 200AD.
The characters, now aging begin to die off as battles are lost and health grows worse. This story tells of how the succesors took over and how their contribution to the era brought the total destruction of the Han and the rise of the Wei, then Jin dynasties.
A very good follow up from the first book and an essential for owners of Volume 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get this A.S.A.P!!!, 6 Jan. 2004
It was the day before the school holidays when i left for my music lesson. My guitar teacher and me had a great interest and love for Iron Maiden. As i wandered in with my electric guitar a massive smile was on his face. Without saying a word he revealed this Iron Maiden book and CD. At first i wasn't too amazed as it only had five songs but the backing tracks were incredible and while playing run to the hills you really feel like an iron maiden band member with passers by walking in as you play the solo near the end! This book is absolutely incredible and any major guitarists who would like to play some iron maiden should get it. It has Tab, chords and proper music for those that can read it. The backing tracks on the CD are very realistic and once you get into it you can't help but start singing! Buy this as soon as it's available and i promise you, you won't regret this amazing buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book i ever read in my childhood!, 5 Dec. 2003
In primary school the class was made to read it. No one really cared much for it except me. I loved the book. It was about a barn owl that was afraid of the dark and met and talked with several characters and learns to come to terms with the dark. The book is hilarious and right from the begining it's funny with the owl's name (plop).
The book is a brilliant read and shows how we need to adjust slowly before coming to terms with our fear. I advise it for every child and adult. Buy this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the lot!, 4 Dec. 2003
I generally found the second one not to be as good as the first. The second movie had too many other things happening and the T-101 and the T-1000 never really had any major action scenes together at any point until the end. The first had many as the Terminator is almost the main character and centralised around him.
I was really looking forward to the third installment. I was blown away when i watched it. From begginging to end, all the scenes were perfect. The movie was the best of all three. I don't want to spoil the movie and tell you what happens but i would definately buy this movie on DVD or video!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic model!, 2 Dec. 2003
I am a fanatic about Lamborghini's and with out having the Gallardo i didn't have the full collection. The Gallardo model is stunning, with well sized pieces and no flaws in the vehicle design to the model. I can't say it's fun really, as i use it as a model but a young kid could have fun for ages rolling it across the floor...like any other toy car. Models have to be durable and this one does it's job. Educational value is good as, believe it or not, it had the detailing of the cars actual engine and all other pieces. And also it's more likely that you'll see the model than the actual thing. A good model for model collectors!

5.0 out of 5 stars Movie, Game: Equally Spectacular!, 30 Nov. 2003
The movie was one of the most amazing movies i had ever seen and I was intrigued by the fighting, With and without weapons. A long wait followed for the game but it was well worth it! The game is spectacular. It almost resembles a kind of Dynasty Warriors style, but demolishes the similarity between them with it fast kicking, hard punching, deep slashing action!
Of course, all the characters from the movie are in it with Li Mu Bai, and co and four playable characters. You can level your characters up making them indestructable and invivible upon mastering the technigues for hand to hand and weapons. Also, the Green Destiny is in it along with a massive range of other weapons.
Only one thing to say, Love the movie, love the game. And even if you haven't seen the movie, play the game, you'll then want to see the movie.
An amazing game all round with spectacular graphics and beautiful surroundings. If i could i'd give it ten stars. Buy this game!

5.0 out of 5 stars No flaws, no boringness, just complete and utter excellence!, 21 Nov. 2003
This review is from: Dynasty Warriors 3 (Video Game)
The second game, i found was quite confusing at times and was quite a pain to play but when i got to play this beast of a game all my thoughts about how rubbish it was changed. I advise you buy this game. It'll have you playing for months, there's loads of characters to master, lots of levels to get and the musou modes are stunning. Don't delay or listen to others, BUY THIS GAME!

5.0 out of 5 stars A dark, story with a twist!, 19 Nov. 2003
This review is from: Max Payne (Video Game)
Max Payne, a broken man upon the slaying of his family. His only thing that can keep him going is the bloodlust that one day he'll find their murderer, and pay!
Max Payne is an absolutely stunning game! When it first came out it was amazing, with it's bullet time and beutifully crafted storyline. Although it looks a tad dated now, it doesn't matter as the gameplay, mayhem and storyline will make you want to play it so you can lay down justice and avenge the family!
