1.0 out of 5 stars INCOMPLETE RIP OFF, 6 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seller rip off... NOT the complete season 2, only up to episode 13 of season two's twenty three episodes. Disgusting.

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh how the mighty have fallen., 16 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Oh how the mighty have fallen. Speaking only of the CAMPAIGN, for me, this game is such a wasted opportunity. I hope someone gets sacked over it. Too boring to compete; the team element is rubbish; no sense of mystery.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Far Cry 4: by a long way., 16 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not as good as Far Cry 4 in my opinion. For me its worst faults were:
That there was no Outpost Master option: that is the option to replay conquered outposts as often as you like. WHAT were they thinking, that was such a great added benefit and I THINK IT WOULD HAVE COST THEM NOTHING.
The game lacked ANY charm, and the women were even more hideous than in Far Cry 4, no wonder Takkar spends all his time hunting.
NOTHING is spoken in English so you have to read sub-titles for EVERYTHING... EVERYTHING... what a DRAG, and seriously unhelpful to those of us more aged gamers whose eyes are no longer so reliable. My gaming chair is about 10ft from my TV so it can be a struggle, especially as there can often be other things going on: another STUPID decision by Ubisoft.
Finally, I REALLY liked the plot alternatives available in Far Cry 4, the Amita and Sabal choices. I have played FC4 several times and it was literally different each time because I made different choices: BRILLIANT and MISSING in Far Cry Primal.

5.0 out of 5 stars My introduction to the concertos., 1 Mar. 2016
I think perhaps that these recordings are underrated. I bought them, I think, back around 1980, and listened to them a lot. They still seem to dwell in my head, and I think there can be no greater praise than that.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lara Croft TERMINATOR, 2 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lara Croft TERMINATOR, is what this game should have been called, as its essential character resides in slaughtering your way through several hundred 'men' in order to get where you are going. The presentation of the game is of the very highest quality, replace Lara Croft with a Dark Angel female super-assasin type and it would be just fine. But Tomb Raider IT IS NOT.

4.0 out of 5 stars Careless...?, 9 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lot's of good stuff here BUT I have never seen so many MISTAKES in a published text. Someone needs a wrap on the knuckles for this, it is dreadful, and unnecessary. There were several passages where the text didn't make sense, and almost wouldn't make sense even if you substituted the probably correct words. In places visible evidence of un-checked cutting and pasting... Sloppy, sloppy, sloppy!!

I do like the relationship between 'vampirekind' and humankind though, and the sex scenes were well written.

4.0 out of 5 stars Goodbyes and endings always suck., 7 Dec. 2015
Goodbyes and endings always suck.This ending is no exception and I think that CH made a good attempt at a difficult job. In my opinion the only way, given CH's premises, that we could bid our heroin a worry-free farewell was to have her settle back on Sam. The story could perhaps have benefitted from a more extended exploration of how the magic of the CD'or had affected Sookie and not just Sam. CH refers to it, I think, but NOT enough. Personally, I had always been hoping that she would find a way to return to Bill, but Sam works too.

A male reader, I read books 1-12 a few years ago, then listened to books 1-13 over the last few weeks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bortkiewicz: Russian pianistic romanticism in good taste., 10 Nov. 2015
This review is from: Piano Works 1 (Audio CD)
I had known this composer from the Db etude recording of I think a DuoArte player piano, where it was a stand out track. BUT... I had no idea the composer had written so much. I hope that these excellently performed recordings will generate some interest in this unfairly neglected composer. His music, in my opinion is consistently in better taste than such as Liadov and Liapounov, although I suppose it inhabits the same post-Lisztian romantic sound-scape. Perhaps it doesn't approach genius as Rachmaninov does, but neither is it quite so maudlin, which is a good thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars I keep waiting for those amazing low basses and they are never there, 7 Nov. 2015
This review is from: Rachmaninov Vespers (Audio CD)
My vinyl version of this recording has dwelt unchallenged in my mind for the last 25 years, so I am buying it again on cd. Even other Russian versions are pale in comparison, I keep waiting for those amazing low basses and they are never there.
