Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Terrible costume and an utter waste of money. The material is cheep, so cheep that the coat is transparent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Holy Crap, Yes!, 19 May 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Inevitably people will talk about this games graphics, which, I admit, are among the best I've seen. But while they are stunning they aren't that important and aren't why this is a brilliant game.

The main draw to the game is the Nanosuit. It's great to play around with, and rather than just being another FPS with a gimmick, it adds a lot to the game play and distinguishes it from most other games in the genre. It allows for an aspect variation and adaptation that few games provide and the game is varied enough to ensure you don't get stuck in a rhythm.

It can be a little to easy to spend the game invisible. And as fun as the stealth kills may be, it is possible to avoid many confrontations in this way.

The biggest surprise for me was the story. It was great with plenty of twists and dramatic set pieces. It also paced itself, something that you don't see too often in the genre that meant every set piece had an impact. The end set piece is one of the best finales to a game I'v e played, up there with the likes of Uncharted and Infamous.

Finally there is the multilayer. The addition of the suit sets it apart from most and adds a tactical element, you can stealth into an enemy base, stealth kill one guy and switch to armor to kill the rest before running off with the games equivalent of a flag, go invisible and snipe, tank shots in armor while hulking around with a HMG you ripped from a gun emplacement or charge around with a shot gun. The interplay between different players tactics means games continue to be interesting. There is a small problem with snipers being slightly over powered but you don't often get enough of them in a game for it to be a problem.

Factor in the 4 preset classes and 5 custom classes, unlock-able weapons, attachments and suit modules, you've got a interesting multilayer with a long lifespan.

All in all, a great game and highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a hat., 19 May 2011
I got this for my 6th form leavers dinner and I am really happy with the quality.

Nice material, well made and a good comfortable fit.

The lining is also very nice, but is pink, not red. That however, isn't that big of a deal.

Put simply, it's a well made hat and well worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars nothing quite like it, 13 Dec. 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: MAG (PS3) (Video Game)
256 players is something special. Its huge and there's nothing quite like it.

Its an incredibly fun game but due to its nature may put some off.

Due to the size of the game, you can't just gp off on your own, if you do you'll get killed very quickly and not do very well overall. rather, you must work as a team, staying as a group and only breaking off should the situation call for it.

There are a few issues though, most notably that it can take a while to find a game sometimes especially the larger game modes.

And there are some balancing issues, in that the team S.V.E.R. win the vast majority of their matches with Raven coming up second and finally Valour.

And of course, with all online games, the learning curve is very steep at the beginning.

All this taken into consideration, I would still highly recommend it

2.0 out of 5 stars not quite what you see, 13 Dec. 2010
A well made leather case, nice stitching and holds the phone well.

However, you don't quite get what is shown, the case doesn't have a orange/brown interior and that was one of the reasons i liked it so much.

And to call it luxury is a little generous.
