2.0 out of 5 stars They have done nothing within this game to enhance update or up grade the feel or story line of the game and it is most tedious, 30 Aug 2014
This review is from: Thief (PS3) (Video Game)
Well this new thief game had me very excited and as described it is the thief of old but that is were the inspiration ends. They have done nothing within this game to enhance update or up grade the feel or story line of the game and it is most tedious as a result. Talking of storyline, is there one? If there is one then I have missed it! The game looks pretty however but a pretty game will not keep an old thief fan happy for long. I was hoping for a completely updated game one that used the power of modern technology to take the genre even further and to create the thief that we all know exists but has yet to be created. What rubbish.

4.0 out of 5 stars Theif as good as ever!, 11 Aug 2014
This review is from: Thief (PS4) (Video Game)
Thief but not as we know it? Possibly the most awaited game of the year but reviews have been critical and often harsh but not as far as I am concerned justified. When I first played the initial thief game back in the day on PC format it would be safe to say that no other game I have played since has ever came close to being so addictive and darn right payable. Thief 4 is still addictive and playable with superior graphics that emulate and add to the original version wonderfully. As Garrat the master thief you will be sent on a series of missions to steal for various clients a series of artifacts, this mission will take you through excellently elaborate worlds full of danger. Hide in the shadows, dodge the guards, work out the puzzles and pick the locks. In other words this game is Thief as we know it and love it! Their have been more than a few bad reviews for this game however I think that he reason behind these reviews come from comparing the game to the initial PC game of years ago. Nothing will ever play like the first and it is unlikely that the PS3 could even create the same style as that of long ago. If it did then we would have a new problem, the same people would feel that this game is a mere clone. Even if it is not exactly Thief of the old days it is without doubt the best remake of its kind and it could of all turned out so much worse than it is. Be warned, rotten reviews are not always right.

4.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, 5 Aug 2014
I rather liked this movie, an excellently well crafted tribute to the 70s ans 80s style of horror movie. Even the special effects mimic those found more in Hellraiser than the type we see using todays technology. If the film has a fault then it would be the two dimensional approach to story telling, I found my self observing the action rather than living it. This however was the way in which old horrors worked, you became an extra observer in the story rather than an extension of the actor. In my book this film is a classic,if it had been made in the 80s then it would be the one we all love to remember. This film ticks all the correct retro boxes but could be a little lost on a modern audience who would misenterpriate the slower pace as a fault rather than a hallmark of earlier horror.

5.0 out of 5 stars As classic as the machines it covers!, 18 Jun 2014
Before one begins to criticise this book the question should be asked as to whether that person has the knowledge, expertise and resources to have written the book themselves. If the answer to this question is in the negative then rest assured that this book will provide many of the answrrs that are needed to place the expertise at the fingertips of the enquirer. The book is not cheap yet the information is of immense value, the colour pi ture are clear and true, the binding is excellent and the subject knowledge breathtaking. I for one feel that this book has illuminated the darker corners of my personal ignorance on the subject, no longer will I have to make an educated guess at a make or model, a date or a variation, a machine finish or a sales figure, it is all here present and correct. This book is first class. If your answer to the first question is in the positive then I very much look forwards to reading your book on the subject in due course.

If you are serious about pinball then give this a massive miss. Only one game repeated three times. The flippers do not move independently. No real skill needed because the ball has a floating movement. Useless.

This review is from: Invaders from Space (App)
Everything about the game is almost perfect but it does not play at all like the original. Instead of the aliens building up speed over the course of several attack waves I found that the game became very fast to quickly taking the fun out of it. If you haven't played the original however this detail will not be a problem.

This method has become much more useable since the addition of the CD s and I think that it will be a winner for all teachers and pupils alike.
