5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent little gem, 11 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Full review soon but well worth the little price tag and so far it hasn't failed to deliver anything that I expected from it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very happy with the company that dealt with the order for this item., 10 Dec. 2009
After ordering this item Media Wales dealt with my order, I can say that they were excellent in all regards of my purchase. The item blows the water out of my old 8800GTS so far I have not found any of my games that I can't run with max settings.

Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short but Sweet, 24 Nov. 2008
As per the review title this brief comment is designed to capture the pertinent points to gamers and is thus short and sweet.

The game brings something new to the console gaming market with a fast paced and still taxing challenge, is it revolutionary? No, however there is little else available that this game can be compared to.

The graphics are clean, even sterile in appearance however this benefits the futuristic theme to the timeline of the story and it is fresh to see in a game era that is filled with dark foreboding world environments.

The fluidity of the animations is done well with little to no glitches and the control system is simple and no more complicated than necissary.

Combat is quick and easy provided that you do not, as a player, attempt to 'shoot it out' as the game designers have stayed away are after all a 'Runner'.

Level design is good however linear and this may frustrate FPS players who are increasingly being granted free worlds such as Crysis/STALKER etc but this game must be viewed as a game to pick up and play for 30 minutes of fun.

Final synopisis - A fun, quick paced racer with a little story bolted on, all in all a fresh new game and well done to the producers as this game provided more fun than Assasins Creed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Camera is great - but beware of the battery., 4 Aug. 2008
The camera is a great little piece of kit, handy to pop in the pocket and isn't a hassle to carry around in your palm if visiting anywhere that means you will be taking many photographs, such as museums etc...

This camera comes with an NP-20 battery when bought, a battery that Casio admit is a faulty line, so much so that they are sending my replacement battery free of charge (Bad mark for Casio too though as they don't send to BFPO addresses). The battery will not recharge if completely discharged (of course which is how they are when new).

Great camera - rubbish battery

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply fantastic, 2 July 2008
This review is from: Aqua Sphere Vista Goggles (Misc.)
Following a series of unsuccesful attempts at finding a decent set of goggles for use in physical swim training, the purchase and subsequent use of the Aqua Sphere Vista Goggles has, excuse the pun, 'opened my eyes' and revamped my faith in top quality engineering. These goggles are extremely comfortable, so much so that you often forget you are wearing them and they do not try to suck your eyes from their sockets as others I have tried.

Transfer between Swimming/Cycling, (and running), during triathlon training requires no change of glasses as they are extremely lightweight. The vision radius is also very good, and important when training in the sea where other water users, (often in boats/jetski's), are zipping around.

I have had no trouble, due to the patented skirt system, in diving into and below the water down to the recommended levels and never yet had any problem with misting of the lenses even when exercising heavily.

The strap adjustment system is as described in the product description, easy and quick to adjust and the design and look of the goggles is current with todays fashions for the sporting type.

Overall this product is excellent, no water leakage into the goggles due to the skirt system - extremely comfortable - quick and easy to adjust and primarily, does not mist :)
