2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 12 April 2008
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Halo 3 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Halo 1 was a real console seller. Halo 2 was brilliant online and had a reasonabvle single player experience. However Halo 3 was a big disappointment and as the first game i bought for the 360 i wondered if i'd done right buying the console (thank god Call of duty 4 and Project gotham 4 convinced me i had done right)

I haven't got xbox live now and so have no idea how good it is online, but if you're going to buy just for the single player game then i wouldn't bother.

2.0 out of 5 stars i really don't get it.....?, 28 Mar 2008
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bioshock (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Why did this game get such good reviews? Was it because of the great graphics? Maybe. The gameplay is tedious and after about 3 hours i've given up and sold my copy on amazon's marketplace. When compared to other 360 classics like Call of duty 4, and gears of war (which i know are different types of games) this is sadly lacking.

Think carefully before purchasing

4.0 out of 5 stars watch for at least 31 minutes..., 27 Mar 2008
This review is from: Out Of The Blue [2007] [DVD] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I watched the first 30 minutes of this film with my wife until she had had enough and went to bed as nothing had happened of interest. However 30 seconds later i shouted he back downstairs as the action really took off. What follows is stunning and unbelieveable. As a true story it is even more stunning. The closest UK equivalent i could think of was Micheal Ryan going crazy and shooting people in Hungerford in the 80s

Well worth a watch but give it at least 31 minutes

5.0 out of 5 stars OFFLINE review of COD4, 19 Mar 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I don't have xbox live and so can only comment on the single player element ofthe game, but believe me it is amazing. And i mean really amazing. I remember similar feelings when i played halo 1 on the original xbox and kept thinking "this is something very special". I had a 360 about 18 months ago and sold it as i lost interest, but having played COD4 on a friends 360 i bought the console again mainly just to play this game. When i had the previous 360 i played COd2 and thought it was very good. Well this game is even mre impressive - the graphics, the movement of the other humans, the music, the environments and the weopons are all TOP NOTCH.

How can they possibly make this better in COD5?

VERY Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars I must have watched a different film......, 1 Mar 2008
This review is from: Stardust [DVD] (DVD)
...looking at what the other reviewers has written. I didn't like the story very much at all. The special effects were pretty good and michelle p. and Clare Danes are gorgeous but the film had little else on a positive note. I bought the dvd Friday, watched it Friday night and sold it on Amazon marketplace on Saturday as i definitley would not watch it again.

Overated, in my opinion

5.0 out of 5 stars Not what i normally read but very good, 28 Feb 2008
I'm normally into thriler books but read the first few pages on AMazon and thought it'd be a good book - i wasn't wrong! It has a great story and memorable characters. I can't believe the books are being criticised for not being historically accurate as this was not the authors intention - he wanted to write a gripping story based on some historical accuracies and in this regard he succeeded.

I've already started the second book out of the 4 (the death of kings) and the good news in it's as good as the first. No doubt soon i'll buy/read books 3 and 4 and then start on the conquerer series about Hanibal.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best young child books, 23 Feb 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With 'The gruffalo' this is one of the best books i've come across for my young 4 year old. It is a really funny book with great rhyming. If you like reading a story to your son/daughter then buy this book - you will not regret it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not that great, 23 Feb 2008

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got this game free from amazon vice and although it wasn't my usual game i thought i'd give it a go. The controls are difficult to get the hang of and it aslo crashed my computer which no othwer game has done in a LONG time. After about 3 hours of tring to like it i gave up. Maybe it's just not my type of game, but i didn't think it was very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars a really useful guide, 22 Feb 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having both a hybrid and a road bike i needed a book for general maintenance that would cover the essentials for both types. This book does that. It covers the steps for various brakes, wheels and gear adjustment as well as other stuff like a bottom bracket and even adjusting a seat post.

What you can't see on the internet is the size of this book - it's only about 12cm tall and so is a real pocket size which could be easily fitted in a pannier if you tour or commute.

The pages of the book which i was particuarly looking for were the maintenance schedules - weekly, monthly and yearly. Each shows what you should do in simple steps to keep your bike running well.

Highly recommended, particularly for beginners

5.0 out of 5 stars A great online game and a good single player mode, 19 Feb 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
THis is SO much better than MOH vanguard which was IMO very poor.

The campaign mode is done well with 3 difficulty levels and good graphics and gameplay. The wii remote acts as a good gun alough i couldn't get to grips with using the wii zapper at all and gave up. I now use the wii remote and nunchuck in different hands like other games.

The arcade mode is like the normal game but the movement is done by the game and so all you have to do is shoot Germans and health packs and reload by flicking the remote up quickly.

The online maode is really good and because it uses EA's servers it is LAG FREE. It reminds me of xbox live but without the lag or voice chat. There are 3 modes, deathamtch, team deathmatch anf capture the flag and a good assortment of maps. I am really ejoying playing this game online - it's the best online game for the wi so far.
