4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Game, 16 Aug 2014
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got the game today, ordered on Tuesday arrived Saturday, and instantly started playing. The graphics look notably fantastic from the offset and the game throws you into the action a lot quicker without too lengthy a tutorial. I spent around 40 minutes playing the first introductory sequence as the game gives you free reign to explore the island, loot chests, find treasure, synchronise viewpoints and all the other good stuff we expect from assassins creed.

However, this exploration did lead me to discover the rather unpolished controls. Those who have played previous AC games will be used to holding 'RT' and 'A' to jump from obstacle to obstacle, now you just need to hold 'RT' and push in the direction with 'LS'. This leads to a lot more mistakes and you'll find yourself accidentally jumping in the wrong direction now and again. A bit annoying but I'm getting used to it.

In terms of game play the land based memories are much the same as those of previous games in the series. Usually, go into restricted area and find/follow/destroy/assassinate a target. Aside from stalking zones (shrubbery you can hide/move around in) this is exactly the same as how things have played out before.

Exploration is where this game comes into its own, the world is a place of beauty and almost everything can be climbed, scaled or interacted with in some way. There is lots of fun to be had, whether you like gathering collectibles, stirring up trouble with guards, entering naval battles, clearing forts, hunting animals or just free running. There are plenty of ways to fill in some times.

If the controls were more fluid and the camera angle wasn't so awkward at times then I would happily give this a 5 but these nuances drop it down to a very solid 4. Definitely a recommended purchase, especially at the low price it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant across the board, 11 July 2014

The item itself works very well and I had none of the issues mentioned by other purchasers in setting it up. The item comes with a quick installation guide that contains detailed instructions in how to set up your repeater. I had mine up and running within ten minutes.

My desktop pc is situated upstairs from our router and got a signal strength of two bars (51%), my laptop got the same signal level in this room and my phone only got 1 bar. Now, with the repeater, all devices get a signal strength of the full 5 bars (87%). Just make sure you place the repeater somewhere that has a good wireless signal if you are hoping to replicate these results and also take note that this redistributes signal horizontally, not vertically. The latency on my wireless signal has also reduced massively (from 100+ to around 60) so if you want to use this item with a games console or a gaming pc to reduce latency at your end then this should be perfect.

Onto the customer service, which was absolutely fantastic. As the item had arrived outside of the expected delivery date I left that as a note in my feedback for the product and then thought nothing else of it. A few days later I received an email from the seller apologising for the late delivery of my item and offered me a full refund in compensation. I was taken aback by the obvious consideration this seller takes for its customers and would happily purchase more items from them.

Overall its a fantastic product for a fantastic price and you couldn't ask for a better seller. 100% recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Case for Price, 2 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Runs cool with AMD/ATI system. Never seen the case or motherboard temps rise above 33C and have gone as low as 25c, hard drive sits at about 28c. Good airflow with plenty of fans.

Found cable management difficult to organise due to very large case and relatively short psu cables, luckily this comes with a CPU power extension.

Back fan is a little loud but with sound playing I cant really hear it.

Otherwise everything fit in nice and easy.
