5.0 out of 5 stars What can I say???? BRILLIANTTTTTT, 15 Feb. 2005
This review is from: Scorpia (Paperback)
what can i say? this is a brilliant book. the best of the best. this is my favourite serie from my favourite author Anthony Horowizs. the first was excellent and the second better and the third.....until now the 5th. this is probably the best of the serie and i can't wait for the sith to come out in April (Ark Angel) (but not as much as HALO 2!). the sixth will surely be better.
Alex is angry and wants to find out the truth about his father, if he was really an assassin like the russian, and what is SCORPIA? this leads him to venice to find out his answers. Scorpia is a huge organasation of crime, assassination, corruption.... Alex will soon learn from one of the leaders of this organasation, that his father worked for them as well as the russian and was captured by MI6. They proposed to exchange him for the son of an important politician who was about to be killed and tortured by Scorpia but they cheated and killed Rider and that all this was the idea of Mrs Jones. Alex, furious of this news, accepts to join Scorpia. He is send to a trainig base and is quite happy there. But he doesn't want kill and says so openly to his teachers (who works for Scorpia) and they tell him that once he does it, he would realise it isn't that bad and starts enjoying it. the best way to learn is to kill someone so they send alex to kill Mrs Jones!!!!!
this book will get you hooked and eager for more. You won't be able to stop. (i started reading at 10 one night and finished when i had finished the book, and it was 2:30 on a school night!!!)
Horowitz is a brilliant author and my and many other's favourite. he is truly brilliant. he wrote a lot more novel very popular as well as the diamond brother stories. they are truly funny and joyful and some scary oooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
If you want my advice, read every single book of Horowitzs every 2 or 3 years during your childhood.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful, 17 Jan. 2005
This is an extension cable which extends the xbox controller's lenghts considerably. it is very useful if you need it of course and i do. there is not much to say unless that it works well and there are no problemes and that it's cheap.

1.0 out of 5 stars Irrisistable, 8 Jan. 2005
this game is absolutely fantastic. after completing the first game i was left wanting more and have since replayed the game countless times, it's a classic. i think Nintendo have really hit the nail on the head with this game - with most people sharing the view that the Gamecube is for "kids" the Metroid games really do it justice by providing for the more intelligent gamers. they are terrificly in-depth, clever, sophisticated and appealing for the mature gamer. i challenge anybody to play this game and not become totally imersed in its clever combination of massive unique worlds, mind-bending puzzles and absolutely immense amount of detail. From the insane number of different baddies you'll encounter, to the fantastic power-ups and weapon upgrades, you will always find something new to surprise you
So buy this brilliant game and you won't be disapointed, i can asure you. If not buy an xbox and Halo and Halo 2 or counter strike on pc

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh come on! Give me a break!, 8 Jan. 2005
This game is pandora tomorrow repeated. it is exactly the same thing, same graphics... The only difference is that there are new moves, new levels weapons ennemies... But it is as slow as the old one and you don't use your eapons more often. This game is too slow, you have to wait half the time and there is rarely any action. you just fall asleep waiting. I bought the old one and i didn't even finish the first level it was so boring. i can't imagin what it is on xbox live. If you've got pandorra tomorrow don't buy this unless you loved the old one. otherwise be carefull before buying this, you should try it first and really love this kind of slow game

5.0 out of 5 stars Halo: brilliance evolved, 4 Jan. 2005
This review is from: Halo 2 (Video Game)
This game is amazing. that is all i need to say. you should buy it if you own an xbox no dought about that. the first was brilliant, this one is better.
A lot of people write bad reviews about this game but that is only because after hearing so many good thingfs about it, after waiting so long and after playing so much halo which is utter brilliance they were expecting a perfect game but of course they are disapointed because there is no such thing as a perfect game. If you didn't wet realise, all the reviews who wrote bad things about this game are those who waited, played halo 1 and read everything there is to know about halo 2 like me and none of them are new to halo and don't own halo 1 and didn't read information about halo 2 before it came out.
+New weapons
+New enemies
+Improved AI (Cortana has a better hair cut)
+New moves (dual weild)
+New vehicules and old ones improved
+Griping storyline that may sound fishy (but that's only if you haven't read the book)
+The story line covers a lot of the covernant
+Best grapics ever with of course some glitches but that's normal
+Amazing multiplayer and XBOX Live
+No levels are identical
+You can play as the Arbiter (a covernant elite) and be invisible
+The story ends with a lot of misteries which makes you want to play Halo 3 to know the rest or read the book (you should read the books by the way they are exelent, extremely gripping and explains a lot)
+There are amazing cut-scenes which makes you want to repeat what is said using the same tone
+Extremely addictive
+I could go on!
-The missions may seam a little short but the main part of the game is the multiplayer and it isn't fast to finish the game in legendary nor it is easy
-The flood is back but this isn't really a downfall, the flood is different even though it isn't as good as the others it is better to have both and some people like the flood. And it doesn't apear a lot during the game. And the storyline would be even more fishy without the parasite
-Some people say they don't like playing as the Arbiter and that the story ends with him but the only difference is instead of having a flashlight you can be invisible which for me is even better. Otherwise it's just the pride of being the Master Chief.
-It is a bit weird the covernant would break up like that i wonder what will hapen next
-You are completely gripped by the game and cannot stop playing, it disrupts you social, privite life and you studies. but if you know how to limite yourself it's okay and you still have your parents to do it for you (my parents bloqued my tv on week days so i am only aloud during the week end and not to much)
In conclusion this is a brilliant game that everyone should own. it is the best first person ever.
BUY IT!!!!!! MONEY WELL SPENT!!!!!!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not so bad, 4 Jan. 2005
All the reviews and the critics of this james bond are horrible, but i don't understand why. i find this gamne quite good, a lot like halo, which is good because halo's the best, but they copy alot. the storyline has nothing to do with the other james bond that shares the same name apart from the caracters. the absence of vehicules in this game is quite annoying for many players,even me. in revenge, the gameplay is a lot more realistic but alot like halo, again. this game has nothing to do with the old golddeneye that had so much succes. This is really because the devlopers are completely different so rogue agent is a lot more like agent under fire, everything or nothing and nightfire.
in conclusion this game is not so bad, including the gameplay that's realistic, has no vehicules, is a lot like the other james bond on xbox by EA, has a lot copied from halo and has nothing to do with the old goldeneye on N64.
the multiplayer isn't very good. the absence of bots isn't a good idea and the xbox live isn't very good (compered to halo 2)
If you want a good shooting game with a good multiplayer buy halo
if you want an original james bond with vehicules and gadjets buy everything or nothing
If you want a realistic shooting game with a good multiplayer buy counter strike
if you want a shooting game a bit like halo, a bit realistic, without vehicules and for 1 player without multiplayer or xbox live buy this
if you want to waste your money buy harry potter
if you wwant a football game buy pro evolution soccer 4

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 11 Dec. 2004
This review is from: Halo 2, Vol. 1 (Audio CD)
this cd id fantastic. the music is very... how to say it? it has a good tune. of course this isn't the kind of music you would use during parties when you are getting late with your friends! but when you are going to sleep in the evenings or to relax. you've heard the music when playing halo but this is a totally different experience.
all halo mershandise is good. so buy it. this and the game and the oficial walkthrough and the books by eric nyulund.
BUY IT!
