5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain!, 28 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bargain... at 20 odd quid? Well yes actually, for the simple reason that it actually works. I haven't seen my face without a beard or razor burn since i was a child. Plus, because my facial hair is curly I get ingrowing hairs, and the spots that go with them. This stuff cured all of it; its nothing short of a miracle cure. So by that reasoning... Bargain!

5.0 out of 5 stars The halo in whom, the old ways have joined the new., 12 Nov 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Halo 4 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I'm going to be touching a lot of bases on this one, not least because the game has a lot of talking points, (mostly good but occasionally bad) but also because of the widespread lack of objectivity among the one star reviews. I know, I know, that sentence has the whiff of hypocrisy about it given the full on 5 stars I've given it, but i wouldn't give the game that score unless i thought it honestly deserved it, and i will be going over why i think that in a moment. I'am also well aware that many of the one star reviews are, COD + PS3 fanboys, trolls, and people that have made assumptions about the game without actually playing it. I'am also well aware that I shouldn't be feeding these genius', but some issues really need to be addressed, and instead of simple descending into a rant, I'll deal with those issues as i get to them.

Lets kick things off with the campaign. The first thing you'll notice, though possibly the least important thing, is that this game looks ridiculously gorgeous, to the extent that you wonder how the hell the Xbox is managing to run it. It's doubly impressive when you note that this game runs liquid smooth, with no frame rate drops or choppiness what so ever. To Halo fans of old this is quite surprising, as previous games in the series have always been a step or two behind the curve in this department. Though somewhat darker in tone than its forbears the game retains the rich colour palette and style that have been characteristic throughout the series.

The sound quality is easily capable of standing shoulder to shoulder with the graphics, with a completely new range of sound effects for weapons, vehicles, and in fact... everything else. Because the sounds have changed so much, some find it hard to relate to their old school equivalents. Me personally, well i found that it added a degree of weight and realism to the weapons, which means the battle rifle, for example, no longer feels like a bb gun. While we're on the subject of sound we might as well deal with the score. Gone are the anthemic (Is that a word?) tracks of old, in their place are more atmospheric sound tracks that blends into the background and focus' on underlining the mood of the moment. Which is better? For me personally it's six of one, half a dozen of the other, the new score suits the games new tone, as did the old for the old.

The game play follows a similar philosophy to reach; keep the open areas and ground vehicle moments, but throw in some little surprises (space combat and such). Even got a bit of good old fashioned rail shooting which had me all nostalgic, though the pelican segment desperately needs more stuff to shoot at. Where the game differs however is in it's use of the Prometheans; these guys do not mess around, or at least on legendary they don't. Where as the elites will quite happily take it in the face, the knights will shift around constantly trying to break your line of sight, and will then suddenly teleport behind you, or trap you in a corner so they can have the pleasure of turning you over. If only the friendly A.I was so smart. A box of rocks is smarter, and a quadriplegic antelope receiving a hug from a python has a greater chance of survival than these halfwit, as you'll find yourself watching old favorites like dodgy driving and walking into walls.

The standout feature of the single player is unquestionably, however, the story, both in it main story arc, and in evolving relationship between the Master Chief and Cortana. It plays out with good flow and builds throughout the game, though it does ask you to swallow a hefty chuck of exposition at one point, and i can't see it being too accessible to new players.
There are a few other little niggles that stop the campaign from being all it can be.

Firstly, of all the things to borrow from call of duty... quick time events... why? Quick time events are the bane of modern games, they are, to all intense and purposes, a cut scene that you can't skip, or go off and make a cup of tea in the middle of. In halos defence here however, these are the best quick time events you're likely to see, as the actions use the same button commands normal game play does, they're short, and you still feel like you're in control of the character.

The second really is a bit of a non-issue though I'm compelled to mention it; button pushing. A few times in the game you have to bush a button, some gamers see this as repetitiveness gameplay; really? Did life get boring for you after you opened your first five doors, the first few times you went for a dump, having to get dressed every morning. Personally i don't see the big deal, it's not like the previous games were any different when viewed without nostalgia goggles. I loved the single player campaign, as the gameplay is good fun, and the story is fantastic, and you can still play the campaign in co-op, which makes it one of a shrinking pool.

Multi player.
Did you love the multi player in halo 2&3? Did you think reach lost its way a bit, and had sucky maps at launch? I did. Thankfully Halo 4 recapture, with a twist, the unpredictable, mental, magnificence of halo 3, with a fantastic selection of maps. Ideas that felt a bit half baked in reach (Armour abilities, load-outs etc) have been completely reworked. Yes I know weapon unlocks and Armour mods are essentially borrowed from call of duty, which prior to playing the game I thought could never be a good thing,but they actually work. These ideas were always, in my mind, a disaster in call of duty, and battlefield 3, because they crippled any sense of balance the game may have had. In halo 4 these additions work flawlessly; the weapons are balanced and well thought out so it becomes more a case of picking the right one for the job, than simply unlocking the 'one weapon to rule them all'. The unlocks only deal with basic equipment, so all the power weapons have to be earned in the form of weapon drops, or found in random locations about the map, so no more camping weapon spawns, which I'm sure gave many thirteen year olds reason to moan. And finally you can run without an Armour specialization, which frankly amazes me that bungie never did it.
The long and short of it is, its faster, more mental and most importantly, more fun than its predecessor, and lets be honest they're hard acts to follow.

Spartan ops add a little extra for your money, they're not particularly imaginative, relying mostly on clearing an area of bad guys with a bit of story tacked on, but they're still a good laugh co-op, and I'm glad Microsoft threw them in. That said, i do miss firefight.

In conclusion Halo 4 is best one so far, and by a sizable margin, and, at the risk of sounding like a bit of a fantard, i would say its the best shooter around. I curtainly haven't felt like I've played a game this solid for a while, as most games are shoved out the door, whether they're ready or not, and, in terms of value for money its the best thing since the orange box.
IGNs 9.8 is probably going a bit far, but it gets a solid 9 from me, and is definitely the best game I've played in a long time.

As another reviewer said, "343 have out bungie'd bungie".

2.0 out of 5 stars Battlefield 3 - The future of pc gaming? God I hope Not!, 11 Sep 2012
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
What is best in life?
EA: To crush small developers, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentation of their customers!

This review was a long time coming, and I write now knowing the long term affect this game has had. For me Battlefield 3 is most likely the swan song for my days of PC gaming, and, in combination with the crushing disappointment of Mass Effect 3, may well be the beginning of the end for my days of gaming in general. Why? Because its just not fun anymore.
Battlefield 3 in many ways is an exemplar of what games may well become in the future. At almost every point, from buying the game, up until trying to sell it on ebay, it felt like I was being punished for having the decency to purchase it in the first place. Does EA want people to crack and pirate their games, because the pirates are the only people they're NOT hurting. I suppose I better make an effort to structure this review or it'll turn into a rant.

Let me start with the single-player. If you've played any of the modern warfare games you'll recognize that, in essence, that is what you're getting here; is that a bad thing? Meh. While sticking largely to that rather bland formula does it no favors, it at least manages to dispense with the Micheal Bay-esk story line, (And you don't have to listen to Price quoting beginners philosophy) which is a massive plus. The story-line you do end up with is nothing challenging, you really won't find yourself having to think too hard during this one. Graphically, at least, this game excels, especially during the F/A-18 level and the Tank section, honestly how they made a desert look beautiful I have no idea. I played it at a modest 1080p on my plasma TV, and found it really popped with colour and vivid lighting, giving you a great sense of visual scope. That scope however never transposes into the game play, which leaves it feeling cramped and linear... though that's mostly because it is cramped and linear.
The single-player feels like an afterthought, all be it a well polished one.

Multi-player is where the game is at it's best. The maps have a good range to them, with many individual maps offering a good variety of scenarios within themselves, though some of the artificial bottlenecks can grind games to a halt. 64 players is a blast, with the graphics, semi-destructible environments, and physics, creating a very visceral experience. However the game has massive balance issues, caused entirely by the unlock system which has been borrowed from call of duty, and, as in the case with the latter, penalizes new players, especially with the vehicles. To start out even remotely competitive you HAVE to play co-op to unlock some half way useful weapons. The co-op itself is such an afterthought it's not really worth going into details about.

So the game's flawed, I still had a good time playing it. The graphics are nice, and multi-player's a bit of a laugh. Ok so why only two stars? It doesn't sound that bad? Well it isn't, but that's only half the story isn't it... the other half is a tale of bull----! First you've got to install this sucker, which, no joke, took me six hours from start to finish even with a 30meg connection. It seemed to stop for long periods and time, sitting there just doing nothing. If you get past this stage (which it would seem a lot of people couldn't) and you've allowed origin to poke around your hard drive in its eternal search for porn, or whatever, you get to endure the bull---- browser launcher. This has to be one of the stupidest ideas ever forwarded. It is beta level buggy, repeatedly crashing the game back you desktop to tell me that a piece of script had stopped responding. I tried it with Internet explorer, firefox, and chrome, and it was hateful on all of them, bogarting, in some cases, over 600mb of ram; why? What are you using it for? and whatever you do, don't pick a server that isn't in your home country, as the lag, which is pretty bad anyway, will render the game unplayable.
I finally decided I'd had enough, so off to ebay. At this point you find out that you can not get on-line passes for the PC version, brilliant. In the end I just gave the buyer my origin account, as god knows I won't be using it.

Judging from some of the other reviews I had it pretty easy, a lot of the one star reviewers couldn't play the game at all! And ,despite what some may say, these people SHOULD NOT be ignored as their grievances are certainly valid. When you take away the shiny graphics, rubbish unlock system, and the myriad of faults, you are left with Battlefield 2, which is no bad thing so just go play that instead.

3.0 out of 5 stars A touch of brilliance gone to waste., 21 Aug 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Syndicate (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Its been a long time since I wrote a review, and its fair to say, at this point, I'm a little late to the party. All the same, I feel compelled to voice my disappointment; not with the game per say, but with the effect it will have on the franchise, as this will more then likely be last syndicate we see for many years, possibly at all.

The problem; Syndicate is, in many ways, two games, both incomplete, one awesome and with the whiff of greatness, the other, average at best. lets deal with the latter first, the single player campaign.
Single player, is in essence, a first person shooter, with an AMAZINGLY predictable story, which you'll be done with in under six hours, and is every bit as bland as it sounds. It's not all bad; the environments are colourful and diverse, rather then the pallet of brown and grey that i think we are all tired of seeing from call of duty clones. Weapons have a pleasant variety also, with some old favorites making a return, though there are still a few too many genre familiars for my liking. The chip functions are able to slightly distill it from the pack, but ultimately its the story that brings things crushing down. It is so predictably 'cliche by numbers' that I had guessed the entire plot at the end of the first level, that's pretty bad; casting Brian Cox as the eurocorp ceo didn't help. But even its predictability aside, it is amazingly thin, little to no effort at all is made to add depth to the main ark of the story. The original games had no real story, they didn't need one, it was all about corporate conquest, did they really think this story needed telling.

Finally we get to co-op. Arr co-op where many an hour of mine have disappeared never to return. This is where their efforts should have solely lay. No story, doesn't need one. Its just you and your mates fighting through a selection of maps to improve your syndicates standing, the way it should be. Experience points allow you upgrade your chip functions, while chip-ripping enemies give you tokens to research weapon and chip application upgrades. Co-op succeeds in realising what syndicate was all about in a way the single player never could.

If someone from EA is reading this (doubtful as there are no profit figures) please, please, try again. Cut out the single player story mode, and take the co-op to its next step. Just make it into a corporate conquest style game, with larger, more numerous maps that can be approached in a multitude of ways. Increase the RPG style elements so you can research cybernetics like in the original. Add agent customization and a financial elements when researching. Starbreeze are a capable studio, the stull-splittingly awesome Escape from butcher bay for the original Xbox proved that, Let them make it the way Bullfrog would have.

Of course this won't happen, we'll slowly see more and more franchises ruined as publisher continue to try and turn them into Call of Duty; such a shame.

Overall a 3.5, but with the promise of something so much more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Time for a 'Leap of Faith', 2 Dec 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Are you a masochist?

Have you played more first person shooters then you can shake a preverbial stick at and fancy a change?

Have you always wanted to wear womens cloths?

If you answered 'YES' to any of the above then this is the game for YOU. But there is only one way to play a game like this, so repeat after me:
'I -insert name here- do solemly sware not to use a firearm during the coarse of playing mirrors edge, or at any point set the difficulty below medium, because easy is for Pussies'

By making this pledge you will find the game more challenging and more importantly earn youself an ACHIEVEMENT (<-----So needs girlfriend). Off the bat you will notice the crisp clean visuals and soothing ambiance, as you wisk your way from roof top to roof top, enjoying the emersive feel of your caracters movements and vocalisations(farcry 2 take note), making you feel like your literally in her shoes (and cool shoes they are too). Enjoy this time of tranquility while it lasts, for t'is short lived, soon you will come face to face with... The Rozzers 'OH NO'(so not using capitals to create hightened sense of drama). From this point on you will be running faster then games developers run from Uwe Boll. If you are to survive, you must learn the art of disarming, learn to spoil your enemys prostate with a sliding kick, and later on when you meet the persuit rozzers (or as i said at the time 'oh no, NINJAS') learn to run away.

In short the game is a pure pulse pounder, a must for all armchair addrenaline junkies. Propare to spend alot of your time chacing faster times in the 'speed run' and 'time trial' before realising what a geek you've become. But be warned, as much as i love this game, it is not perfect. The game is not an open world, but this alone means nothing as open world games can be weaker then liniar ones(Assasins Creed, ArmA, Farcry 2). You will Die, a lot, and some times it will not seem like its your fault, but checkpoints are well placed, so this is not so bad and besides, its meant to be challenging.

Every true gamer should play this game, buy it, borrow it, rent it, steal it (no wait, scratch that). Love it or hate it, its a change from the norm and a welcome one at that.

2.0 out of 5 stars So bad it passes good and goes full circle back to bad., 8 Sep 2008
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
I played this game knowing that it was going to be weak, many people had told me that, in there word's, "its absolute B******t". With such glowing recomemdations I just had to give it a go.

Story: Eeerm yeh, I dont think there really was one. Something about some kind of bomb and you have to kill one badguy only to find that he's just a stepping stone to the next, and the next, then another one, and so on and so on, untill you get to the cliffhanger ending that is less cliff and more slight gradiant.

Graphics: they didnt really bother here either, lets move on.

AI: The AI reminds me of all the really old games I used to play were enemie stopped in one possition and stayed there till they died. They make literally no avoiding action at all, leaving you to just shoot them in the face, which brings me on to the main gripes.

Weapons and Gore: The gore is just what you were lead to believe, stupidly over the top to the point of hillarious. Unfortuantely it is so bugged that it just mangles the game. For instance you would think that the jib fest of an exploding head would be your reward for a well placed head shot, Well no. The problems are these; The weapons are so stupidly inaccurate that anything you hit is simply by mistake, and secondly the damge models are so screwed that you would have to shoot over a guys shoulder to score that satisfying headshot, stupid.
The shotgun, the gamers favourite weapon, dispencer of jibby death the gaming world over, and here it does much the same. The only trouble is that it drives the havok engine mental. The shotgun will literally put bodys through walls and leave jibs stuck in the ceiling. I once had a torso (just the torso) stuck to a wall spinning around all over the place, stupid.
The light 50 (cant remember what its called in the game), the worst weapon in the game simply because it does not work, forget headshots, you have enough trouble registering hits centre mass.
The knife. The knife is able to catapult people through the air like you flew concorde up their a**e, before pinning them to the wall like a hunting trophy.

Other bugs and glitches: Back to the damage model, my biggest gripe. Its not just that its a bits suspect like many other games. in this game the damage model seems able to actually seperate itself from the graphics model and wonder around freely leaving you desperatly scanning the room till your reticle goes red so you know were to shoot, all the while the graphics model is trying to massage your face with his rifle butt, stupid.

In conclusion this game is actually worse then I expected, given my low expectation thats quite impressive. But it was so bad that I spent most of my time laughing till it hurt.

Everyone should play this game, you simply have to experiance the sheer stupidity.

25% (because its funny)

4.0 out of 5 stars if i could spend promises., 15 April 2008
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
For a number of weeks my mate at work as been rabbiting away about how COD 4 is the best game around, and as playing halo 3 almost constantly with the guys at work, is starting to get a bit long in the tooth, i decided to see if parstures really were greener on the call of duty side. So lets see what i found.

Single Player:

Graphics and atmosphere: This is were the game really delivers the goods and by the bucket-load. The graphics are simply the best ive seen so far they really did have my mouth hanging wide open, but its not just the graphics it the thing many games seem to forget; atmosphere. The way the game pulls you in to the experiance is amazing, somthing that i havnt really seen since operation flashpoint many many moons ago (high praise indeed).

Gameplay: Pritty good, controls are fluid and instinctual with good flow and response. As pointed out by some other reviewer there is no duck and cover system which is a bit sad, but as the focus is more pointy and aggressive i understand why it is not there.

Story and level design: The story is a bit weak, but who cares, all you need is a reason to shoot stuff, right! The levels are fantastic, each one is a little different from the others offering a slightly different aspect and approach with set pieces like the cargo ship and the sniper mission "gillies in the mist" being very worthy of note. the only trouble is its really all over way to soon, the game is woefully short.

AI: The AI is great, friendlies act exactly like you would expect in real life, again adding to the atmosphere, hell they can even shoot streight, more then once i found myself swearing at Price for stealing my kills! (tache wearing mother...) the comedy stereotypes always put a smile on my face.

Additional: Weapons variety is good they feel nice to use and respond as you would exspect with different weapons requiring different approaches to use effectively. It would have been nice if you could choose which weapons you want at the start of the level and you pritty much get access to all weapons right from the get go proved you bother checking whats lying around.

Conclusion: Overall a brilliant job on the single player campaign, exceided my expectations, just wish there was more of it. 92%

Multiplayer: for me at least this is were it all started going wrong.

it all starts out well, the pregame lobby is well layed out and easy to use, you can choose to set custom classes so you get to use the weapons that suit you best. The game is matched very quickly unlike say halo 3 which takes an age, but there is good reason for this. Unlike halo 3 the game does not match like skill levels, it just piles you all together and lets you get on with it, so new boy just becomes a stats boost for the more experienced players. The ranks are however used to unlock new weapons additional equipment can also be unlocked by persistant use of a given weapon. This would not be a problem if they were just an ego trip and didnt affect the difficulty of play. For example the instant i got the silencer for my M4, my k/d spead doubled! yes doubled, for the simple reason that i wasnt so much of a come on for the other players, this is a serious inbalance that really should never have happened. There is also a persistant delay (i dont want to call it a lag) that is always there. it would not be so noticable if you did not have the death cam which plays the bull-proverbial back as confirmation of your suspitions.
But the real problem is none of these things, they could all be forgiven easilly, the real problem is at COD 4 doent really bring anything new to the multi-player party, the map are typical in size there are no vehicles no interesting additions its all very much like so many other games of this ilk, which makes it frankly a bit boring. In short its not bad but its nothing special either. 65% i think.

By now people are probably scrambling for the comment box to brandish me an idiot and say how wrong i'am as if an oppinion can every be wrong. so please dont bother because im not going to care, at the end of the day this is my personal experience of the game, if your experience is different then write your own review.

in summary:
single player: 92 %
Multyplayer: 65%
as an overall mark i would give it 82% good but not up to the hype.
i would liken it to being promised a hot date with Jessica Alba only to get Jessica Albas look-a-like, you cant really complain, but its still not what you where promised.

1.0 out of 5 stars Greastest film ever? not by a long stretch., 11 April 2008
This review is from: Titanic [1998] [DVD] (DVD)
Just the other day i was reading the paper and a small article in the bottom corner of one page caught my eye. the article in brief said that a sample of 6000 people voted titanic the greatest film ever made. Im prity sure that my jaw dropped far enough to hit myself in the crotch "Greatest film ever!!!!!" At first i proclaimed the vast majority of the cinema going public complete morons. Titanic was the only film i could remember wishing i hadnt watched, and ive seen LXG and didnt hate it! But eventually i came round to the thought that maybe ive been too hard on this film all these years. At the time i went to see this film with a friend of mine who for some reason wanted to see it because he had a fixation with the titanic i think, but i kind of wish i had gone with a girl at least then i might have gotten some action for my troubles.
Anyways yesturday i gave the film another go and its not as bad as i remembed it being but likes saying a reliant robbin is not as slow as walking, it still one turkey of film.

Story and script: this is probably the worst part of the movie, the real tragedy is pushed to the back to become nothing more then setting, onto witch they piled a nasty ham sandwich of a love story. The lines are terrble as are the jokes based on peoples ignorance "somthing picasso, he'll never amount to anything" (wow thats bad) i cringed so baddly most of the way through this terrible script.

Cast and acting: They assembled a quality cast in fairness but im not sure they really took it seriously (probably saw the script and thought it was a comedy)infact the only decent piece of acting was from the guys in the submarine at the begining which include bill paxton of aliens fame ("the're coming out of the walls man!!" superior stuff).

Set peices and costume design: Fianlly someone did their job right! the sets and costumes are convinsing throughout the cars were a nice token as well (even is they were only as props for the, funniest, most unneccisary sex scene ever filmed).

Special Effects: Pritty good but at the time i remember thinking that there was something wrong with them, something unconvincing, but i have never been able to put my finger on it.

Additional comments: Every trick in the book was pulled out at the end to produce an emotional response and for me at least every one failed. if they had left it with just the parts with the band playing right up to the end and the captain locking himself in the bridge in may have been ok, as these where decent scenes. But the old couple on the bed and the women tucking her children into bed are just underhanded as they have no part in the plot. some people (mostly the ladys) will say that this is because im an insensitive man. Not true; I cried watching Bridge to Terabithia! and im man enough to say that. another thing is the shot of the man falling off the back and hitting the propeller, it could only have been put in to get cheap laughs (which if i remember rightly it did) its still tastless.

In conclusion, is it the worst film ive ever seen, no, that privalige probably falls to Flight of Fury (steven siegal at his worst) but this is still a smoldering turd of a film. It contains some simple lessons for film makers "good special effects a film Duth not make" you start with script, acting and storyline and work your way out. Probably the worst movie per £/$ ever made. 1 star take it out of my sight!

3.0 out of 5 stars I cant believe im going to say this..., 10 April 2008
This review is from: Until Death [DVD] (DVD)
this film is pritty good, its not a oscor winner, but compared to most of his other films and most other film of this ilk (siegal, snipes sort of thing). i was expecting alot of gun fights, cheap cars blowing up, wooden performances and a cliche script. but no! this is the best van damme movie since Time Cop (legendary stuff) for this film features a story line, carector development and hell even acting. it even has a pritty good music score. Definately not worth the one star reviews some people give it, we reserve those for siegal movies and the likes of mortal kombat (oh and titanic... errgh)
