5.0 out of 5 stars WHAT A GAME!, 28 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a game! This is one of my top 5 games for Xbox 360 and I would suggest that anybody who is into zombies and games that are about great stories as opposed to innovative gameplay buys this game! It's essentially an interactive comic book akin to the old point & click adventures on PC though so if you're all about shooters then maybe it's not for you, but I'd say get it anyway, it's definitely worth it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Some interesting stuff but lacking in substance., 28 Jan. 2015
First things first, this book as marketed as having been written by the Dalai Lama which it wasn't, it was in fact written by Howard Cutler, a psychiatrist, based upon discussions with and attendance at various public talks held by the Dalai Lama. This I think is the major problem with the book as rather than getting the knowledge from the man himself, with all the various intricacies of thought that you'd imagine would appear in something written by any great thinker, we're presented the Dalai Lama through the eyes of a third party and so we're only ever really given a taste of his thoughts on any specific subject. As such although what is presented is interesting enough, for anyone who has even a basic understanding of Buddhist thought you're quite often left thinking well that seems pretty standard stuff, where's the unique insight? Essentially what we're left with is a populist vision of the Dalai Lama (especially during all the asides in which Cutler repeatedly drives home the image of his intense spirituality, inspirational qualities and good humour to a level that borders on sycophancy), providing quick snippets of thought for the uninitiated to perhaps gain some inspiration to question their modes of thought, however for anyone looking for any real philosophical insight (as I was) you're better off looking elsewhere to begin with. As it was I found myself losing concentration regularly by the end as the book moved from subject to subject without ever really scratching the surface of any of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Game, 29 April 2011
The title says it all - in my eyes only surpassed in greatness by its sequel. So intricately detailed, though in some areas of the subplot action it may drag a little this is more than made up for by the action of the main story arch which is absolutely fascinating. If you like games with a big story, lots of different aspects of dialogue that can affect your game differently etc. then this is for you. If you're purely into COD online, as some of my friends have specified, then maybe this is not for you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Diabolical, 11 April 2011
I won't waste my time going too in depth into the problems with this book. Let's just say it's 1050 pages of constant repetition and totally wooden characters. You spend the entire work thinking soon it's going to get good because there are some good ideas in there, but it always ends up with Jonnie Goodboy Tyler (the pure lack of imagination in that name says it all really) saving the day in some ludicrous manner that sees him moving from a world that has been reduced to something like a Bronze Age state of technology to something approaching a space age era in around a two year period? L Ron this is not Civilisation 4, granted this is science fiction (although to the contrary of the author's protestations it might equally be considered fantasy) but come on, the dynamics within this novel are just totally absurd and ultimately very boring.
