The necklace arrived promptly and was exactly as described. This was a gift and the person receiving it was overjoyed with it, the quality is fantastic, is a decent size and not too flimsy. Most people who see it assume it cost a fortune.

Thor is a brilliant model. Except his helmet looks dumb and he has girly hair, pretty pretty girly hair. (quote Wade Wilson aka Deadpool, aka The merc with a mouth aka that crimson git)

This review is from: Marvel Encyclopedia (Hardcover)
This book is epic for anyone who wants to know even a little bit about marvel characters. With this book, you can literally watch any Marvel film or tv show and fill in any gaps in your knowledge. The only problem is that Deadpool only gets a small entry, he should have had 16 pages back and front as he is the best character ever and everyone else is bum.

My Playstation3 is probably the best machine I own. The controllers are ok if you have small hands or don't mind twisting them into impossible shapes. The grips change that, and people with average size hands or above can play in comfort. There is no loss of function, the vibration still works and so does everything else. There really is no down side to having these things.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Version of Zoo Tycoon, 2 Sept. 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ok, so if you are reading this you might be wondering why this product (Complete Collection) is worth getting over the original game and the two seperate add ons. Well simply put, you get all the zoo tycoon animals and attractions, you get all the dinosaur stuff too and all the marine mania items. But you also get some extra animals, sceneary and items that you wouldn't get from buying the three games seperately. So when the title says "Complete Collection" that is about as accurate a title as you could hope for.

Now then, if you aren't already familiar with Zoo Tycoon then you need to know that this is a management game shown in an isometric view. You are required to run a zoo and make it a success. You will need to keep an eye on finance but you will also need to make sure your zoo is up to scratch. This means that you will need to hire staff to care for your animals, build excellent exhibits and cater for your guests hunger, thirst and toilet needs.

So thats how you play the game, if you need more help then there are plenty of useful guides available online.

One of the things mentioned about this game a lot is the educational value, and it is definately something not to be overlooked. In the process of caring for your animals you will need to learn about their natural habitat, this information is included in the game about each animal. So if you want to build a lion enclosure, it pays to read the information supplied about lions in order to make a good exhibit. Also the budgeting required to succeed is a key skill you will learn whilst playing.

As for how much fun this game is, then imagine this; you have built your zoo up, you started with a poor excuse of a zoo and now you have built it up to include great exhibits, lots of guests and you start getting recognised for your hard work and excellent management skills. Receiving awards for excellence is a great feeling of acheivement. But when you finally get your giant pandas to breed and a little baby panda arrives you feel a special sense of pride that few other games manage to inspire in gamers.

Overall, an excellent game, well worth buying, whether adult or child.

Batman: Arkham Asylum (PS3)
Batman: Arkham Asylum (PS3)
Offered by GAMES CONSOLES BARGAIN
Price: £13.89

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as it gets, 1 Dec. 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This game is quite simply as good as it gets. You control Batman around Arkham Asylum where you will come into contact with some of the most famous Batman villains of all time. Not all of them are in there, but you can often find their cells where they were holed up until recently.

The mood is perfect, the voices and sounds are great and the storyline is one of the best in any game. The gameplay is great fun, you can become a hand to hand master, or a dark predator striking from the dark. You can also have lots of fun winding up the enemies, make them panic and virtually soil themselves.

There is also loads of depth to the game, you can spend lots of time cracking the Riddler's riddles that he has left all around the island for you to discover. There are also plenty of cool bat-gadgets to discover along the way. Also, there is no area of the game that you can't revisit once you've been there once (apart from Croc's lair).

So, once you completed the game on hardest difficulty, found all the secrets and had all the fun in the world, what next? Well there are plenty of challenges to complete that can really test you. Also plenty of downloadable challenges on the playstation store, including the opportunity to play as The Joker.

In summary, this is the best game of 2009 in my opinion (and I buy a LOT of games). It is the only game I started playing through again straight after completing it once. It is insanely fun but also great mood and great story. The length is just about right, its not 100 hours long like some rpg games and not too short. About 7-10 hours of gameplay I think.

Worth anybody's attention, unless you dislike Batman. But I chuffing love Batman!

5.0 out of 5 stars TV How it should be, 9 Mar. 2007
This review is from: The A-Team: Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
This is the first season of the A-Team. If you don't know the A-Team is the collective name for Hannibal, Face, B.A. and Murdock. They would be those four fellas on the front of the box there. These four guys are former soldiers and fugitives on the constant look out to avoid capture by the military police after they escaped from a military prison. That sounds like great fun to watch. But that's not all they also help people in trouble against bigger bad guys at the same time. Yup, that's right :- AMAZING!

Even more amazing is some of the ideas the guys come up with on how to acheive this. They will use their wit and Face's scamming skills to obtain just about anything in any situation. Then with seemingly random bits of junk they create something incredible that just whoops the bad guys. Not only do the plans work but they add several ounces of pure cheek and class on top - thank Hannibal for that.

As well as the clever build up of junk you can see an almost perfect dynamic between the four main characters. Hannibal is the leader as he was in army, he comes up with the plans and gets really excited when everyones lives are in danger (the jazz). Then there is Face, he is the charming con artist who can get absolutely any item no matter what, no matter where, he usually gets the girl too. Then there is Sgt. Bosco Baracus or B.A. as he is called which stands for 'Bad Attitude' played by Mr.T, he is the driver, the muscle and the man who builds things out of scrap. Finally is Howlin' Mad Murdock, the crazy pilot who adds some comic relief with his 'crazy rap' constantly annoying BA.

So the ideas are great and the characters are great too, but then everything else is great, the music - timeless. The stunts are off this planet - look at how close the helicopter sometimes gets to clipping the floors and hills and cliffs.

All of the episodes offered on this box set are great but for me the best two are 'Pros and Cons' set in a prison, and 'Beast From the Belly of a Boeing' set in a plane. Everyone has their personal favourites but those two show why the A-Team are the best in my book, a complex plan in one and some really quick thinking in the other.

If you remember the A-Team fondly then buy this. If you've never seen it before then still buy it as it really is classic stuff. Solid gold.
