Useless, the plastic piece that the phone actually sits in is really brittle and cracks. Lasted less than 2 months before the phone started falling out of the case and i had to throw it away.

As a size 13, shoes are hard to come by that fit and i usually end up online. These shoes fit first time for a 13 and they are comfy too. I have literally not brought any other trainers in 2 years!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good quailty, 5 July 2014
Great Solid set that turned up very quickly. The cases are very hard and spring back very easily should they get dented. We have used the middle and small case several times now and no complaints. The interior has a zip pocket and straps to keep everything secure. The bright colours also make it very easy to spot on the conveyor belt and the smaller bag fits into the Ryanair hand luggage measurements too. Would definitely recommend these.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not one for the kids....., 5 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You better be ready to let go of any inhibitions playing this! With cards like "Pac-man furiously guzzling cum" as an answer be careful who you play with. Quality game though with lots of laughs to be had. Generally starts off with a few pained expressions as answers are read out but people quickly get into it and the answers just get worse and worse. Good for those with a twisted sense of humour, for more fun, play with your parents!!!

Nice hard case. The last one (another manufacturer) fell apart very quickly and wouldn't hold the phone in it making it likely to smash! This one however is very hard and protective and feels solid. No complaints and would buy another one if i ever needed one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tacky little lamp which isn't really good for much, 5 July 2014
Tacky little lamp which isn't really good for much. More of a gimmick that of any use. Don't expect it to even stand on its own.....

3.0 out of 5 stars Close but not quite, 5 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sniper Elite 3 (PS3) (Video Game)
Another game released too soon. You know you are in for a ride when the developer launches a website for you to send them your problems with the game!

The game itself is actually quite challenging, i have not yet mastered the silent kills and almost always end up running from heavy fire and dying a LOT! The game has some legs to it and it will certainly keep me occupied for the moment.

It does have some downsides though, it's a little buggy and has frozen on me (PS3) a few times. There are a few details which would have been nice like being allowed to swim or even dump bodies in water or on fire. It at times feels a little rushed and that a few more touches could have made this game brilliant, instead you are left wondering what if.

Overall the gameplay is adequate and will keep me playing and for less that 20 it's ok. I get the feeling that developers are sending a lot less time on the "old" console games now though and unfortunately that shows through.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's ok but don't expect more than that, 30 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: GRID: Autosport (PS3) (Video Game)
This review is based on the Touring car career only!

Quick review - The game is ok but it's not set the world alight. Worth buying if you like previous GRID games and know what to expect. Stay away if you are expecting any form of fair or decent racing.

This game just annoys me the more i play it!

Pros: You can qualify
: Has some length to it
: Not super easy to beat

Cons: The AI are really only interested in killing you, not racing you
: You can qualify on pole by 4-5 seconds but then at the end of a 3 lap race the quickest lap is around 2 seconds quicker t that your quali lap. No racer finds 7 seconds stuck in mid pack!
: The damage looks as if it has been modelled on Felony 11-79 from ps1!
: The "engineer" that gives you information regularly tells you that Ravenwest are in the lead, even when you are!
: The sponsor tasks are often "Gain 3 places in 2 events" but when you start on pole you can't do it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Massive Dissappointment, 3 Jan 2014
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Gran Turismo 6 (PS3) (Video Game)
Want to start by saying that I have owned every GT since the start and am easily most gutted about this one.

Why?

- Dreadful AI. The game is less about racing and more about trying to get to the front of the line through mobile chicanes who either don't move or do their utmost to PIT manoeuvre you.

- You ALWAYS start last and around 10 seconds from the lead, it's basically a 3 lap lead chase.

- Large parts of the game missing like B-Spec and the endurance series. Game feels incomplete and like it was released just for christmas unfinished.

- The game seems to sense when you are behind and you can easily be 10 seconds behind for 2 laps and then gain 5 seconds in a single sector and likewise eat out 6 seconds a lap, get to the front and then get stuck a second ahead.

- I have completed 65 races now and won 65 races and i am by no mean fantastic at this game, it's just easy!

Overall - I would not buy this game unless you really enjoy racing online or fancy time trials with moving chicanes.

This review is from: Pilote costume for men (Apparel)
Wore this to a new years party and it was torn on the leg seam before I even put it on! Went to undo the zip later in the evening and it had got jammed and several people failed to free me. Ended up literally pulling it apart. Material is not one that you can iron on patches either as it will melt.

Basically, even at this price it's expensive but its a last resort and you expect no extra use from it then go for it.
