5.0 out of 5 stars Bioshockingly Good, 22 July 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Simply a great game. A first person shooter which mixes weapons and super powers. The story casts you as Booker De Witt who has to rescue a girl from the flying US city of Columbia in the early 20th Century. However the story has twists and turns. You get a variety of different levels, travel through the city hanging from overhead rails and kill people with crows.

Avoid any spoilers on the story if you can, as the game provides a rich history of Columbia where it pays to explore every hidden area.

5.0 out of 5 stars On Target, 28 Mar. 2013
A great comic book. Well written and with a distinctive but clear art style.

The book reprints issues 1-5 of the recent Hawkeye series, and rather than telling of his adventures with the avengers this is a down to earth street level book. There is little need to know anything about his previous life but there are points where it will add further flavours to the book.

Hawkeye now living our of an apartment in New York, deals with both super villains, Shield, an important video tape, and more importantly an injured dog.

A similar feeling to the Iron fist series from a few years ago.

This is a must add to your comic collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blood sweat but could do with more Tea, 26 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is taken from Tom Reynolds blog.

Tom drives an ambulance in Newham in London and tells his daily adventures, this include the 7/7 bombings to dealing with minor drunken accidents.

Told with humour and insight into the world around him I really enjoyed this book and couldnt recommend it highly enough.
There is no over riding storyline as it is just what happens to him but makes you feel for the ambulance service and also how he keeps going with every day seeming like an East enders Christmas special of accidents.

Just about to download the sequal but if you have read this far then get it now.

4.0 out of 5 stars A brief history of World War 1, 13 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A brief factual history of world war 1. If you are looking for a quick background reading on the main causes, individuals and events during WW1 this book will provide you with what you need. A good starting point but the very nature of the book means that it isnt going to analyse anything in depth.

Would have been interesting to have more about the after effects as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a pain in the neck, 24 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pulling Up Stakes (Kindle Edition)
Written by Peter David, who is probably most famous for his comic book work including Incredible Hulk and X-Factor, this tells the story of Vince Hammond, a vampire hunter in the mode of Buffy or Van Helsing. He comes from a long line of vampire killers, but unfortuantly has been turned into a vampire by one of his potential victims.

The story tells of how he is trying to hide his new "lifestyle" from his family, and mixes the authors usual comedy and drama with a story that moves on quickly.

The main issue with the story is that it is only the first part of the adventure, and it just stops. The second part is available however but just be aware that you will need to get both to have the full story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deadpool to the Max, 30 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Deadpool Max: Nutjob (Paperback)
Reprints the first 6 issues of the David Lapham written and Kyle Baker drawn issues of the first series of Deadpool Max.

The book is set in a slightly screwed version of the marvel universe, for example Baron Zemo is a modern day white supremacist. Deadpool and his glamarous assitant Bob are set various assassination targets by a mysterious agency.

Its clear Deadpool is mad just not how mad until you read this. Lots of adjectives like high octane, explosive, pain, oh no he didnt, hallarious and more are appropraite here.

Not suitable for children, people of a nervous disposition, pets, the eldery, anyone called Sharon, the left wing, the right wing, ex-members of the band Genesis or anyone else that cant take a joke.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Dark Knight Returns, 30 Jan. 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
The sequal to Arkham Asylum.

The 2nd Batman Arkham Game by Rocksteady. I have had no problems getting the game to work so review purely on the game play.

The story follows on from the events of Arkham Asylum (the game) but you dont need to have played the first game to play this. however if you have you will not only have a better understanding you will also be use to the gameplay (so suggest going in at a harder difficulty level)

The game involves part of Batman's home town of Gotham being converted to a prison a la Escape from New York. You play as Batman and the game is a mixture of fighting and puzzle solving. The puzzle solving isnt particulalry difficult but enough to test your gameplay skills if not your brains.

A number of the batman villains return and the Riddler yet again leaves you puzzles all over the playing area. Perhaps a little less linear than the first but not as open a world as say GTA.

Other than Protocol 10 the villains master plan being a bit of a let down an excellent platform beat em up.

You also get to play as Catwoman or Robin if you have the downloadable content but this doesnt particularly add or take anything away.

Finally one of the shops in the games is Clooney Cobblers presumably also a review of the film Batman and Robin

3.0 out of 5 stars A return for Tegan, 14 Dec. 2011
An audio adventure of the 5th Doctor and Tegan

The doctor meets up with Tegan long after she has left the Doctor and as usual gets tied up in an adventure.

The story is a sequal to the Reaping, and whilst it does stand alone it looses a lot without having heard the first adventure. This is also a sad tale of how being a companion can ruin a life, where as elsewhere it has generally been a bit of a celebration of what it can do for someone.

A fairly typical story which whilst moving along at a reasonable speed has little to either recommend or dislike about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who do you think you are kidding Mr Sontar?, 14 Dec. 2011
An audio adventure of the 5th Doctor, Tegan, Turlough and Nyssa.

The story follows the Doctor and companions stuck on a planet with a group of Sontarian warriors.

However rather than the usual ultimate warriors this bunch are distinctly second rate, and the title of this review will give you some idea of who the warriors are based on.

A more comedic adventure than usual for Doctor Who which has always had an element of humour and therefore depends on how funny you find it.

This is one of my favorite adventures of this year, moving on at a good pace, with a twist in the plot and each of the companions playing up to their traditional images as much as possible.
