5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant, 7 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looks and feels exactly how it should, very impressed for the price.
I am about to buy a smaller one as I ordered the largest to be safe, and it is very large.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bad for most, 13 Nov. 2008
I have owned a 360 for about a year and after getting this console free from a raffle i can say one thing:

This is only for certain people- if you are the kind of person who doesn't like cartoon games, DON'T get this.

Had fun on the first night i had it. The day after i turned it on for 15 minutes... but after realising all i could do was hit a slow moving tennis ball against an AI opponent, i soon turned it off and went for COD4 on the xbox 360.

Decided to go for "Wii Play" mainly to get the extra controller. Fun to start with, thought things weren't so bad for the Wii. Played each mini-game twice or so ...... back to COD4.....

Truly the most boring console for me.

ON THE OTHER HAND my cousin who's 11 years old came to visit us for the weekend. She absolutely LOVED it.

Had worries that the controllers would be flawed but they always point exactly where you point.

Only ever use on occasions with more than 4 people- it's quite amusing with 4 people playing tennis. If you have one of those 11 year old girls who loves TV then this is a good console.

Otherwise BAD! severely...

NOTE: Havn't bought any "proper" games but frankly i didnt want to waste the money. From reviews of these games it's easy to see that shoot 'em up games are poor on this console.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant upbeat album, 7 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Wait For Me (Audio CD)
I borrowed this album off a friend having never heard the Pigeon Detectives before and within a couple of days of having listened to the odd song i found myself in love with this album.

Absolutely brilliant upbeat songs with a few slower but still cheerful songs. Doesnt get boring easily, despite a lot of listening. Pretty unique (as far as i've heard). Catchy.

Lyrics good
Melodies great

End result: 10/10 :)

I recommend this to anyone who likes The Wombats, The Fratellis, The Kooks, and most people who like The Killers ( for a slightly less depressing experience :) )

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album i have EVER bought, 15 May 2008
This album is undoubtedly the best album i have, replayable whatever time in the day and whatever mood im in. Here is a run down of the songs:

1. If i never see your face again: Not my favourite song on the album but is very upbeat and definitely sets the main template for the rest of the songs in the album.

2. Makes me wonder: Slightly faster song with a sophisticated catchyness to it.

3. Little of your time: Another fast song which is upbeat and catchy, great tune

4. Wake up call: Great song about a guys wife/girlfriend cheating on him, brilliant tune and lyrics, really gets the character across well

5. Won't go home without you: phenominal, exceptional lyrics accompanied by a brilliantly flowing melody...absolutely unforgettable song

6: Nothing lats forever: Touching song which is slower than the previous 5 but has great lyrics and really makes you feel like what the singer is feeling.

7: Can't Stop: racey tune which can get a little irritating but it's still a good standard compared to most other artists

8: Goodnight goodnight: Another slow song with a fabulous melody and brilliant lyrics, very touching song

9: Not Falling Apart: Fairly upbeat song which is easy to listen to, nothing special lyrics wise but melody is nice to listen to.

10. Kiwi: Very racey song with a catchy tune, not for those who like "innocent" songs

11. Better that we break: Very much like "Goodnight Goodnight" and "Won't go home without you"- slow and meaningful with brilliant lyrics

12: Back at your door: Similar to "Better that we Break" but not a great melody.

13: Until your over me: Brilliant up beat song with a feelgood air to it- a good sing along song

14: Infatuation: Another song much like "Kiwi", not particularly brilliant but a good song nonetheless.

3.0 out of 5 stars Block out sound but a big flaw, 15 May 2008
These headphones are really good- great sound quality, good fitting earpieces, and as they say, blocks out other sounds.
However, flcik the wire and it's like a bass drum going. NOT good for an MP3 as if you're moving about and it rubs on your clothes you can hear a backdrop of "bwobwobwob" to the music, im sure you know what noise im trying to get across. Great for static use but i really dont advise this for someone who uses their MP3 while playing sports or even walking for that matter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to lose interest, 1 Jan. 2008
After receiving this game and Oblivion for Christmas i have come up with this review: Assassin's Creed is a game which is absolutely outstanding when it comes to scenery and interacting with your surroundings. Everything which looks like you can grab onto it- you can. Although the controls are a little tricky to start with, it's a small price to pay for being able to scale almost every building and survey AWESOME graphics of huge cities. BUT.... as many people have said already in other reviews- it is repetitive. Someone has said that a game is only as repetitive as you let it be...true, but this game sometimes makes it hard to not do the same way of killing someone. So far all the big assassination targets have just run away from me so all you can do is to run after them till they get to a guard outpost then fight 6 or 7 guards to kill the guy. If you have a flatscreen, 50" TV then i would buy this game purely for the awesome graphics and realism of the movement.....if not then think carefully about buying it. DEFINITELY don't buy it alongside another game because you will almost certainly play Assassin's Creed a few times then favor the other game and leave Assassin's Creed to gather dust. I hope this has been useful to you.
P.S. the cut scenes really do get annoying....why the HELL is it set in modern times??!!??

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant, 1 Jan. 2008
I just had to give this game 5/5 for both fun and overall because that's what it deserves. The graphics are superb and the sound is great too. Different types of races keep you interested, not like some rally games which have you sleeping after three races of the same old things. For example the buggy races are fantastic and so are the dirt track things. I VERY strongly recomend you buy this game even if you don't really take an interest into rallying. Oh but one thing, i advise you buy off because it's only £22 on there and free delivery :)

5.0 out of 5 stars High expectations and it lived up to them, 8 Dec. 2007
As an extremely famous cartoon, The Simpsons had to make a movie. Everyone was looking forward t it saying "it's gonna be AWESOME" and, well, it was! I was watching this film, at least smiling the whole time, and some of the gags really were side splitting *coughbombdisarmingrobotcough*
I highly recommend at least seeing this film if you enjoy the Simpsons.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than most of the previous MoHs, 25 Nov. 2007
This game is (in my opinion) much better than previous Medal of Honours. Let me just say that entering a battlefield from the sky is such a cool feature. Anyway, once landed it pretty much turns into a frantic shoot 'em up game. Germans do run everywhere and so do your allies, leavong pretty much no room for those who want to camp. Another reason that sitting behind a wall picking off the Germans that come your way will fail is because they just keep respawning. To get to/complete and objective for example, you have to wait till the wave of germans is over and then run forward before another wave comes. This is, admitedly, rather annoying sometimes but it's also fun. Graphics and sound are good- weapon upgrades are unrealistic but useful (with the exception of the scope on the G43 rifle). To sum up, this is good for people who think they would enjoy a cross between Star Wars Battlefront and the previous MoHs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant........but long, 20 Nov. 2007
This review is from: Black (Xbox) (Video Game)
This game is an absolutely fantastic game: brilliant weapon sounds, realistic movement and awesome graphics. However, there are two things that really did get on my nerves while playing this game. Firstly, it takes a hell of a lot to kill even a normal enemy, meaning that if you want to progress quickly, you end up trying to headshot every single enemy. Then come the tough guys. Me and my cousin now refer to them as "spaz guys" as they come charging at you with a Spaz 12 shotgun. You have to spend either a whole magaziner or two grenades on them. Secondly, although the first couple of missions are very enjoyable, this game's missions can be repetitive and are extremely long. The length of these missions may be alright if you could save half-way threough a mission but unfortunately it doesnt have this feature so you either have to play for more than an hour to complete a mission or be prepared to play the same mission over and over and not finish it. Having said that, these are the ONLY two flaws i have found and no-where near put this game down enough for me to say not to buy it. If you are a fan of games like.........well its not really like any other games i can think of, maybe Rainbow Six 3 but without a team to control. I recomend this game strongly.
