5.0 out of 5 stars Evolution of SSX, 29 Jan 2013

This review is from: SSX (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I remember playing ssx 3 as a child, it was one of my favourite games. So when this was released I had to buy it.

Graphics: the graphics have been totally reworked and updated, and the game does look great. Mountains and riders are well detailed and look great. Especially in night scenes, the slopes really come alive in neon.

Gameplay: Gameplay is similar to the originals, but has moved forward. It is just fun to board down and explore the mountains. Difficulty is set to be challenging but not punishing. Tricks have been reworked to be easier to control, and this works well. New deadly descent mode was interesting, and offered a change from pulling trick after trick. New online mode was interesting, maybe could have been followed through better with more depth, but still kept me coming back after some time.

I would recommend to anyone who has previously enjoyed the series, or anyone with interest. The game is fun, and has much content. At £15 it is a steal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but messy setup, 28 Jan 2013

Ordered these as a replacement for my stock xbox headphones as i found these were the best priced on the market.

Sound quality is clear, surprisingly solid with a good bass. noise isolation is excellent, and makes an immersive gaming experience. apparently microphone quality is clear too, Treble is ok, but not exceptional. This makes them particularly suited to gaming or movies, I found they were good for electronic music but less good at actual voices and instruments. Also listening to music in public with the microphone sticking out looks pretty stupid.

The headphones are strikingly designed, very angular, decent finish quality, although the orange material separating the ear from speaker is quite flimsy. Head size adjustor works well.

Main problem is the mess of wires running from your head to the console which can mess up a room. On the upside when my other headphones unexpectedly broke, these performed very well for the price as a replacement.

So for the price, excellent sound quality and isolation, but messy setup. I would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 28 Jan 2013

Decided i needed a backup drive because of the huge risk of losing everything on my hard drive. Drive works, USB 3.0 is quick, but didn't really matter as automatic backup runs in the background. Looks pretty good in my office, and feels solid. Also easily enough space for everything on my drive, and this was the best price i could find, Would recommend.

Personally loved the shoes, very comfy, great grip for skating, could wear them all day actually. look pretty nice too. only thing is they are hard to get in, also the white laces will get dirty after wearing them around for a while, so youd want to consider some replacements.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality top, 28 Jan 2013

Used this top for playing rugby, especially good for playing in cold conditions. Fits nicely, stretches well, and cant be felt often while exercising. Personally i found when playing in hot conditions, the top didn't keep me particularly cold, and felt stuffy if anything. Overall though it does make workouts etc more comfortable, and doesn't collect sweat like cotton does.

Great joke present, looks the part and is worth the looks from surprised visitors to the toilet. However paper is only 1 ply so not particularly comfortable.

4.0 out of 5 stars currently the best out there, 28 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: FIFA 13 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Fifa isn't exactly perfect, however I have to say its currently at the best its ever been. While 12 had more drastic gameplay changes, 13 has refined these changes, and gameplay feels smooth, and well balanced. Online modes have really come on recently, and ultimate team especially stands out, and now with more widespread adoption and a huge market place is very fun. At some times the gam can be unfair/buggy with stupid goals or glitchy goals, but at the end of the day this isn't widespread. great fun especially to play with a few mates. would strongly recommend

2.0 out of 5 stars Dell Latitude D500 - had to be returned, 3 Feb 2011
Didn't have much luck with this. Upon arrival, the laptop had a hard disk drive error. To be fair, the company sent a new HDD the next day to replace it, but this did not solve the problem either. Also, as this was a Christmas present, to sort it out quickly, I agreed to replace the HDD myself with over the phone help from their technical department. When I tried to take the HDD cassette out of the laptop, the micro-screws had seized up, and it was difficult to do. The screws were green/blue, which suggested a pretty old machine to me. Decided to get my money back.
