Vader's Little Princess (Darth Vader)
Vader's Little Princess (Darth Vader)

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as DV & Son, but still enjoyable, 18 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like the original DV & Son (to which this is a sequel), this brief selection of cartoons is amusing rather than hilarious. Worse, there's a sense of diminishing returns as many of the gags feel like female-flavoured rehashes of & Sons'. But even so, a good buy for any Jedi with children in tow.

4.0 out of 5 stars More sweetly amusing than hilarious, but a great gift for Star Wars-loving parents, 18 Jun. 2013

This review is from: Darth Vader and Son (Hardcover)
Really enjoyed this short but sweet little collection of cartoons. There's nothing here that'll split your sides, but it's consistently amusing and charming.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent suction, stays charged for ages, 18 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With twin girls newly arrived in the house, we needed something handy to clean up food scraps chucked around, and this fit the bill perfectly. Well made, great suction for a handheld, and it holds its charge for a while. Overall, very pleased!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great case for a great price, 18 Jun. 2013

Really impressed with this. Wasn't expecting that much given the price, but it looks good, is sturdy, holds 3 spare games and fits the 3DS XL like a glove. Nice one, Amazon!

3.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced but pretty much essential, 18 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
£20 for a plug and a bit of plastic is a sting, but you really do need one of these if you have a 3DS XL - it makes recharging a breeze. At least I got the XL itself for cheap - thank you, online price battles!

4.0 out of 5 stars Take a bit of care and you'll (probably) get great results, 18 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was probably the most painless-to-apply screen protector I've ever bought. But it wasn't totally pain-free.

The touch screen protector went on without a hitch, but the 3D screen protector wasn't as simple - as I peeled back the backing foil, it ripped! With a bit of delicate fiddling I eventually got it in place with only a tiny dink in the plastic (barely visible), but it made for a tense few minutes!

That issue aside, the end results are pretty excellent - bar the aforementioned dink, I can't even telll they're on! I know a lot of people see these as a waste of money, but if you saw the state of my old DS's touch screen after I got addicted to Elite Beat Agents, you'd disagree. ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant protector, brilliant price!, 17 Jun. 2011
I was a bit sceptical about this - so much for so little? But I thought I'd chance my arm and... they're brilliant! Just as good as any 'official' product, and you get five sets of them. Superfast service, too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy recharging for 3DS, 19 May 2011
It's no secret that the 3DS's battery life is less than brilliant. But this is a cheap n' cheerful way of keeping it topped while at work - just plug it into your PC, plug it into your 3DS, off you go.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job!, 18 April 2011
Well, it works - and that's about as good as it gets for a product like this. As someone who decimated their old DS's screen while playing Elite Beat Agents, the lesson has been learned hard - this is a must.


Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars (Nintendo 3DS)
Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars (Nintendo 3DS)

4.0 out of 5 stars Could this be the 3DS's best launch game?, 18 April 2011
Fans of Julian Gollop's previous work (X-COM, Laser Squad, etc) will find a lot to like in Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars - it takes his tried-and-tested play mechanics and gives them a Tom Clancy makeover.

The result, while not stunningly original, is a solid-as-a-rock turn-based strategy game offering many hours of entertainment.

There are moans - the cliched characters, the lack on online multiplayer (surely a casualty of getting the game prepped for launch day), the less-than-dazzling graphics (the game's DS roots are very visible) - but they're not killers.

Pound for pound, this offers the best value of all the 3DS launch games, and a must for strategy fans.
