1.0 out of 5 stars Wouldn't trust this seller again, 4 Dec 2014

Product not as described. Not region 2, so won't play on UK DVD players. Complete waste of money

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 4 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It would be utterly pointless not to submit a positive review about this. Everything you loved about GTA personified and prettified. Smooth online gameplay too, take note other developers!

3.0 out of 5 stars Potentially the best LBP game but the bugs are rotten!, 4 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not bad but the bugs are unforgiveable and game breaking for me personally. I had all sorts of problems with Manglewood bombing back out to the Dashboard before I realised that hooking out the network connector or signing out of PSN would allow me to progress (I've sent the error reports in but you know how these things go - it might all be sorted out with the 1.3 patch).

That bug aside, and some of the flakiness with network play in general, the real meat and bones of a good LittleBigPlanet game is create mode - and that's even better than it was before. All those extra layers are quite daunting at first, as are some of the new tools and toys to play with but you really can go to town on making some utterly amazing levels and minigames.

So a 3 star purely because those bugs should not be in a released game (it seems to be the norm this generation though, so many recent games have released with horrible bugs and broken functionality, Drive Club's knackered network modes and Assassins Creed's horrid glitches are just a couple of other recent examples). Stick with it, pray that they patch it and sort out some of the more troublesome issues and you WILL get a lot of hours of enjoyment out of this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, hugely disappointing, 3 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think this is a marmite game definitely and I just couldn't seem to engage with it on any level. It's a really nice nod to the original Alien movie but the horribly jerky cut scenes knacker your immersion in between the smooth and seamless gameplay. Until it's patched I'm pretty much sticking a 2 star rating on it as there's little point in producing one of the most immersive and involving horror games of the year with cut scenes that look this shoddy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb and involving, 3 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Wind Rises [DVD] (DVD)
Superb and atmospheric movie that celebrates a love of aviation. It's quite a tear jerker later on though so be prepared!

Breathtaking animation as you'd expect from Studio Ghibli.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome game, not at all what I was expecting!, 7 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hadn't expected to purchase this at all, as I usually avoid games like this like the plague. As soon as I saw the YouTube vids though, I knew this was something a little different. It's like a cross between Dynasty Warriors, Arkham Asylum, Assassin's Creed but all taking place in Middle Earth. The combat is spectacular, there's an insanely deep levelling structure and the visuals are pretty amazing (there's not much in it between the PC version and the PS4 version).

A thoroughly satisfying game

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome addition to a serious inker's armoury, 7 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great addition to any inker's armoury. Very fine tip that allows you to add a bit of white detail to dark paper or backgrounds. Works really nicely though for clearer whites you might need to layer thickly as the gel does dry slightly transparent if only used thinly

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the first movie, 3 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
By the numbers sequel. One or two moments that were alright (the car fight with Nick Fury was good) but a real yawn-a-thon in places

Totally and completely engrossing. I'd fallen in love with the TV series and am now playing catch-up with the books.

4.0 out of 5 stars I just like going out and taking photos without trying to willy-measure ..., 7 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There's an inherent snobbery attached to DSLR photography, bizarre tribal wars between Canon owners and Nikon owners and even more snobbery when it comes to lenses. I was looking for a budget Zoom lens not even knowing such a thing could exist. I'm no would-be professional photographer, I just like going out and taking photos without trying to willy-measure over kit.

the Tamrom AF 70-300mm caught my eye. How on earth can a lens costing under 100 quid possibly compete with proper Nikon kit (it was bought for a Nikon D3200)? Simple answer is, you do indeed get what you pay for but if you're - like me - unwilling to part with the better part of 300 quid to get a similar Nikon branded lens with Autofocus and VR, this is a durned good alternative.

First day out shooting, taking ultra-clear shots of gargoyles on the side of Donnington Castle with ease, or even close-up pics of the surrounding scenery, the images were sharp and blur free (but naturally with no VR stabilisation, you might want to pick up a cheap tripod or monopod - though I was shooting purely normally.

Lens comes with a hood, decent lens cap and if you've picked up a D3200 with the standard 18-55 lens and are looking for a bit more zoom without breaking the bank, this should definitely be your next purchase. Only word of warning - read the instructions carefully about removing and fitting the hood, you need to have the lens in MF (Manual Focus) mode before doing so otherwise you could knacker the lens and the camera.
