5.0 out of 5 stars Great alternative to Canon cartridges at a very good price., 24 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It makes you wonder why Canon charge so much (more than twice as much) for their cartridges. It's obviously not the production costs because these inks produced great photo prints.

5.0 out of 5 stars SEE IT IN THE CINEMA FIRST!!!, 18 Oct 2012
Saw this last night on the X-treme screen at my local Vue (sorry about the advertising). Don't miss the chance to see this on a big screen. I was lucky enough to be at the concert (albeit well away from the stage). Seeing it again last night was like being at the concert all over again. Fantastic!

I will of course be buying the Blu-ray & CD (after I've seen it again on the big screen this Sunday).

Deep joy!

2.0 out of 5 stars TOO MUCH EFORT TO BOTHER PLAYING, 18 Sep 2012
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Silent Hunter 5 (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
I love SH3 (with the Grey Wolves mod)and still play it regularly. SH4 is OK but the interface is less satisfying and too complicated. SH5 requires an internet connection, a Steam account(ugh!)and passwords and whilst looking great is cumbersome to play. Stick to SH3.


No Title Available

1.0 out of 5 stars WHY IS AMAZON SELLING BOOTLEGS?, 14 Sep 2012
I'm surprised that Zeppelin's lawyers aren't taking Amazon to the cleaners. It's all very well picking up the odd bootleg at record fairs but an organisation like Amazon supporting Japanese bootleggers seems all wrong. I bet you won't publish this?

4.0 out of 5 stars A VERY GOOD WAR FILM, 6 Sep 2012
This review is from: Fortress [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
According to IMDb this film cost only $200,000 to make. It was money extremely well spent. It doesn't have the post production veneer or starry cast of a big budget movie but is still extremely good. As a benchmark I'd say "Pearl Harbor" is a one star movie whilst "Das Boot", "Saving Private Ryan" & "Stalingrad" are 5 star movies.

1.0 out of 5 stars HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT, 21 May 2011
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Given Maddox's earlier "Il2 Sturmovik" and "Pacific Fighters" I was expecting something very special. Sadly it's far from special. Loads of bugs (despite two remedial patches). Don't just take my word for this - have a look at any chat page thread and you'll get the same message over and over again. On top of this, there are only a handful of missions and only two campaigns available. My copy (straight from Ubisoft) was shipped without a manual, which is fairly academic since many of the default key commands don't work. Basically, despite years of development this game was not ready for release. Don't waste your money.

Follow up review - Still no patches. Game still unplayable. Please don't waste your money. (14 October 2012).

2.0 out of 5 stars Very pretty, but very very dumb, 22 Feb 2011
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Wings of Prey (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
This game is beautiful to look at, but very frustrating to play. Even with the realism settings very high you can't escape the arcade nature of the game. Missions are time limited and goal specific, so that you can fail (and get threatened with a court martial) despite the fact you have just shot down two He111's on your first combat mission. The mission simply ends mid-flight. If, like me, you want a combat flight simulator that allows you to fail or succeed a mission on your own terms then stick to any of the Ubisoft "Sturmovik IL2" games. Still the best combat flight simulator games by a very big margin. If you already have them be patient and wait for "Wings of Dover" which is going to arrive in March 2011. In summary "Wings of Prey" is very pretty, but very dumb.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT GAME, 20 July 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
It might be short, but it's the best WWII tank sim (including Steel Fury which is also excellent)that I've played.

Great graphics, excellent interface and pretty challenging.

To give you an idea of what I'm looking for from a game here are my other favourite WWII sims - "IL Sturmovik 1946", "Call of Duty" (2 & WAW), Silent Hunter (3 & 4) and "Hidden & Dangerous II". T34 V Tiger is on par with these.

4.0 out of 5 stars BEST WW2 TANK SIM AVAILABLE, 12 April 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Runs great on my four year old Windows XP machine. Looks and sounds fantastic. Completely engrossing. In the same class as Silent Hunter III, Call of Duty World at War, Il Sturmovik etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars NO PROBLEMS WITH XP, 16 Feb 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Game installed & runs like a dream on my three year old XP system. My graphics card is a Nvidia GeForce 7600GT.

As always with the "Call of Duty" series this game is immersive and historically accurate (as close as a PC game can be!) with excellent attention to detail.

Don't be put off by the poor rating this game has got. It's in the same league as "Il Sturmovik 1946", "Silent Hunter 3 & 4", "Btothers in Arms", "Hidden & Dangerous II" etc. In other words it's excellent.
