5.0 out of 5 stars Best game I ever played on console, 12 May 2014
I bought an xbox 360 in Aug 2013 tried Modern Warfare 2 but didn't take to it. Used the console for watching Breaking Bad final season and catch up TV for next 3 months. Jan 2014 I came back to it with Ghosts...been playing it solidly for 4 months now and I love it. Sharpened my controller skills with the impressively cinematic Campaign then a month of Squads on-line before finally taking the leap into full multi-player on-line. It is a very immersive experience & completely addictive. I've since tried Black-Ops II & MW2 again. This game is much much better. The movement is fluid the graphics are exceptional and it doesn't go overboard on gratuitous violence hence the 16 rating. Would strongly recommend this game

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 6 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Titanfall (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
As a frequent player of COD: Ghosts I got caught up in the hype for this game and bought it on day one believing it would be even better than Ghosts. Oh dear. The game play is distinctly inferior because the movement of the pilot and titan are not as fluid and many of the targets are so small you can barely make them out. I found it frustrating to play and each time I have come back it has been more frustrating not less

5.0 out of 5 stars Revenge of the Stretford Canal Bank Cleaner, 3 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Autobiography (Paperback)
I bought this on release date and dived in...but struggled to get into the flow and dipped in and out until I finally got past page 55 and the start of secondary school. This first part was off-putting. Too wordy, too much alliteration and too many discussions on obscure tv shows, films and records from the 1960s that say nothing to me about my life. However, after the start of secondary school, it really gets going. The lighting of the touch paper for his stellar rise is the emergence of the New York Dolls and his failure to establish himself in any ordinary career. His absolute desperation that something must happen to save him from a life of humiliation is palpable. Inspired by the early Punk records from the US and his obsession with English poetry he realises his only hope is to combine the two and finds his unique voice. The remainder of the book is the story of the Smiths and the artist Morrissey became and is brilliantly written and electrifying to read. It took me 3 weeks to read the first 55 pages and less than three days to read the final 400 and it is absolutely worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Liquidly Wonderful, 26 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant book about a very interesting subject. Written in an exceptionally literary and readable style that the subjects within the book (all flawed, creative geniuses) would thoroughly approve of. It has re-kindled my love of 'binge' reading after an excessive abstinence. Part memoir, part extended literary essay, I have been unable to put it down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Classic Soul, 14 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Saw on Jools Holland and followed up. One of the best Soul albums I've ever heard. It's as good and reminiscent of "What's Going On" by Marvin Gaye. Still Mama' is possibly even better. Blown away by the quality of this album!

5.0 out of 5 stars A return to the form of their first two albums, 14 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Revolver Soul (Audio CD)
I love 'Exile...' and a lot of tracks on La Peste but most of the other Alabama 3 albums in between have been disappointing, save the odd single like 'Johnny Cash'. This album is up there with the first two for me. They have managed to reproduce the thrill and energy of their live performances on record. Its like being at a festival in terms of the special guests and different styles of music included.
