5.0 out of 5 stars Best Farming game by a long shot., 29 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a vastly improved version of the Farming Simulator games. The others were good, but this tops them all. Guidance is on hand for basic tasks, but many you have to work out yourself, a very good way of getting to know the game more thoroughly. Fortunately if your decisions don't work out well, you can simply delete your progress and restart that portion of the game. It is a good tactic to save the game frequently to avoid losing too much progress.
Very user friendly interface, excellent graphics and in Career mode the ability to make your own decisions. A first class game, a must for any farming enthusiast.

4.0 out of 5 stars Train buffs look no further., 24 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Train Fever (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
A most comprehensive and well designed game. Attention to detail, e.g. people walking the streets, avoiding traffic, boarding trains and buses, makes the whole scenario more realistic and believable, Your financial decisions are very important, it is easy to get carried away and spend too much, particularly at the start of the game. In the past I have always avoided Steam but once I had got through the all the stages of registration it works very well. I would have awarded five stars had there been a day/night option, but I heartily recommend the game to anyone interested in town and transport building and control.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well constructed with good actors, 13 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have seen this film a couple of times and thought iy worthy to add to my collection. The plot is weel crafted but never over done. Doris Day is a somewhat underrated actress possibly because of her international recognition as a great singer. Bernard Miles on the other hand is, I feel, a somewhat overrated actor, but he does present a good performance here.
James Stewart is, well, James Stewart. Always reliable and competent, blessed by that very individual and much mimicked accent.
I would recommend it to all fans of Day and Stewart and shall enjoy watching it again from time to time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing production, 14 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ROMEO & JULIA - MOVIE [DVD] (DVD)
Using the main actors of similar ages to the characters is a very good idea, providing the actors are capable of providing a convincing performance. In this case this was achieved. A most refreshing production was matched by excellent photography and convincing settings. I will be enjoying this many more times. Excellent!

4.0 out of 5 stars Masterful. A must for any Beethoven fan., 25 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The playing is masterful, as one would expect from Heifetz. The easy flowing interpetation of complicated passages indicate a complete understanding and sympathy with the music, and Beethoven's undoubted passion. In some cases the impression is given of rather hurried sections which might be better if the listener was given time to catch his breath.
The age of the recordings is sometimes evident particularly when compared with recent interpretations, but this doesn't retract from the enjoyment of the playing.
Overall it is very good value and worthy of a place in any Beethoven library.


Yes Minister and Yes Prime Minister - Complete Collection [DVD] [1980]
Yes Minister and Yes Prime Minister - Complete Collection [DVD] [1980]
Dvd ~ Paul Eddington
Price: £13.49

5.0 out of 5 stars A hard act to follow, 7 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is always easy to say that the first is best, but the superb casting of this, the first, version of Yes Minister and Yes Prome Minister is not easy to improve on , let alone emulate. As is often the case the three lead characters ARE Jim Hacker, Humphrey and Bernard.
They are not actors portraying fictional people they are the genuine articles.
A thoroughly amusing and yet philosophical series, adored by many. A bargain at the price. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very good, but not perfect, 4 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Barenboim is a consummate artist and a complete pianist of the highest calibre. His understanding and knowledge of Beethoven is probably unsurpassed. Unfortunately in some of these interpretations of the sonatas he tends to overdo the contrasts between soft and loud.
Sadly a couple of the discs were faulty, particularly in the final sections of the discs.
I would normally have considered a five star rating, but owing to these faults, which are most irritating, I am obliged to award only three. Nevertheless, I would recommend the set as a very good buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Virtual Poser no model needed, 28 Feb. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: "Virtual Pose" 4 (Hardcover)
This is another very good tool for the figurative artist. The ability to view the model from different angles and distances is invaluable. The standard of the images is first class. Most helpful for the sculptor.
