5.0 out of 5 stars Single player campaign alone..., 31 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
...is worth the asking price (provided you can get it cheap ;)).
A seriously well-made game, with excellent visuals, great controls, a thirst for drama and a real satisfaction to the combat. Taking down enemies with accurate shooting is all the more pleasing on the highest skill level Veteran, where you take a more careful approach to the bullet-infested scenarios. Here you'll see yourself drop every few seconds if you don't consider these bullets realistically damaging, and it alters the pace of the game, increasing tension very nicely. Myself, I would've probably found it a touch too hard had I not played through once on Normal first, where you a) learn a little of the lay of the land, and b) really get your CoD legs on, as it were. After around 8hrs playing through the once, it left me wanting more, so I dived back in on Veteran level and wasn't disappointed.

I can say nothing about multiplayer online, or even the Special Ops as I've never played them, but considering this game tends to sell *for* the multiplayer, you can expect that to be pretty good...... provided you don't feel it's too similar to previous releases... which it's bound to be given the premise. Even the single player, while set in different locations, and providing different level layouts and scenarios, is naturally very similar in feeling to the previous games. One does not buy Modern Warfare (or any of the Call of Duty games) without that in mind, surely.

To sound off, it's a game you've seen before, but provided you want more of that, you'll enjoy it immensely.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant can control, but gets repetitive, 31 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The graphics engine was a few years old when I played this, but it still looks magnificent. Detail, effects and smoothness are all top quality.
The controls are intuitive enough to become really adept at the game, and the handling matches that for almost peerless car control. Pretty much as controllable as in DiRT3 even, the game that brought gymkhana in to show how flexible it was.
The event types available don't vary a great amount (and I personally hated the big clunky off-road events, where a singel knock can meant the difference between a win and a bad lose); you've explored most of the locations after the first several hours; you've even reached the game's achievement-earning Level 30 by the time you're only about 30% through the available events, meaning the long stretch towards 100% would offer very little in terms of variety. Opponents and events can get more difficult as you progress up the tiers at each location, but the moment this becomes tiresome, you can offset it by lowering the game's difficulty. The financial punishment for doing this is so little, that it kind of negates the point of the game getting more difficult... or at least, it would take an iron will to decide that you've met your match on the skill level you started on and that lowering it to continue is beneath you :s

Cracking game, with fewer of the rubbish event types that DiRT 1 had, but lacking the messing about DiRT 3's Gymkhana mode offered. You'll enjoy the driving for the most part, which is handy as to get right to the end will take a hefty level of endurance, as each race feels like the last.

I was introduced to this while playing through Dirt 3 on Xbox 360. Erm, seven more words are right here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works a treat, 25 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hooked up to the freesat downstairs, via cabling through the attic, to a portable TV upstairs, the TV signal transfers nicely one way, the infra-red of the remote transfers faultlessly back down.
Have not tried making it talk to more than one device, though no reason to suspect anything other than successful operation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice oil, 25 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product may be 10 times the price of a decent sized bottle of simpler, cheaper baby oil, but you use it that slowly, that it's not a great cost. The oil itself has the lovely aroma you'd expect of olive oil, giving it a real natural feel, and is much thicker than many other cheaper oils, making it better for rubbing in and giving your baby a bit of a relaxing massage.

2.0 out of 5 stars Are you feeling lucky?, 19 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product was quite inconsistent, working with only 3 of the 6 PCs I tried it with - a mixture of WinXP (SP2/3) and Win7; no pattern. It also later began to fail to register properly on one of the PCs it had previously shown life on.
Whether it is poor connections that require a certain USB power level randomly supplied by different PCs, or a driver issue (something it is not supposed to need; but by inheritance something you then can't do anything about if it doesn't want to work) I don't know. Either way, you MAY or MAY NOT have success with this.

I would say though, the seller I bought it from was very courteous, so it's perhaps worth a try, if you're willing to risk the return postage cost.

As an alternative, I am now using a Mad Catz Street Fighter IV pad from my Xbox 360 which, combined with official Microsoft Xbox 360 accessories drivers, provides a very good SNES-capable controller. With the added benefit that it has a couple of additional buttons that can be assigned to keyboard functions such as Alt-F4 with the little application "joy2key".
