Not too bad, the only negative is the occasional Asian characters in the game.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful waste of paper, 1 Feb. 2016
This review is from: Adult Joke Book (Paperback)
I only managed up to the end of In Your Days in the Game (Page 99). Nothing was funny, you can see where some play on words were achieved, but if you're looking for a good laugh, this book is not for you. The type of joke you get is "How dare you tell that dirty joke before my wife. Sorry, didn't know she wanted to tell it herself", "A nudist never has to hold his hand out to see if it is raining" and "what would you say if I asked you to marry me? Nothing, I can't speak and laugh at the same time". Yes, that's the quality of jokes. It really doesn't get any better than that.

2.0 out of 5 stars Amazon Instant Video - dreadful and unwatchable, 21 Jan. 2016

This review is from: Death Train (Amazon Video)
This film is great, so if you want a review of the film, visit Amazon's sister site imdb.com

This review is for the Amazon Instant Video version which I have to say falls well below the mark. We have scenes such as Sabrina giving Mike a hard time - in Italian. When you watch this film elsewhere you get a laugh at seeing the translation in text on the screen, but here you have a 30 second segment where you're thinking to yourself "what's going on here?".

In multiple segments, General Konstantin Benin gives vital instructions and a major part of the storyline - in Russian. You sit there for a minute as they are conversing in Russian, oblivious to what they are saying.

There are also scenes involving Captain Wolf speaking in German that are also not translated. Not vital to the storyline, but leaves you sitting there thinking "what are they talking about?".

If you want to watch this film, DON'T watch it on Amazon Instant Video, you will be left puzzled by the foreign languages that don't show the translations.

4.0 out of 5 stars nice adventure, 23 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Island: Castaway® (App)
Nice adventure type game collecting stuff to a story.

This Amazon Underground version comes with bigger bags and easy to upgrade tools and fishing rods, which makes much more pleasurable to play.

Only problem is the repeated crash to desktop which sometimes loses a minutes worth of progress and then the reload time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful, awful, insert your own dire descriptive word here!, 10 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite dreadful, certainly sorry I got this program.

The simulator comes with four simulations, the first being Arnheim 1965, the second being Mathilde, the third being Koeln, and a demonstration version of Lodelo. The box comes with Stellwerk Simulator Vol. 1 on the outside rather than that shown in the picture on this website, however inside the manual does have English instructions for you (from Page 12) as well as Dutch and German instructions.

Arnhem 1965 - this simulation gives you the option to have the language in English, and about 80% of the content is then shown in English. There are references to Perron, Aarde, Stroom Voorziening, Voeding, Wissels, Normaal, Owgelegd, Codefeyer with nothing in the manual to translate what these mean. There's also amateur coding of the simulation, such as HTML code in the news dialog, and most concerning no information provided on what route trains need to take. The screen is also VERY SMALL and extremely hard to read. The instructions suggest using multi-monitors and widescreen, and whilst I had both available to me, the game didn't utilize this at all, and no visible way to use multiple screens. You couldn't zoom into the panel and you have just 5 mm of screen space to click the required buttons, requiring an unacceptably small amount of precision in your clicking.

There is nothing to help indicate what routes you need to set for what trains, although trying to work out what the trains are and what's been set is equally extremely difficult to determine. I "think" it was the yellow dots, but they soon become stuck and I end up not being able to set the routes in front of them.

Mathilde - this simulation has no option for English, so the whole program is undecipherable unless you speak German. The simulation also is extremely tiny, someone thought it would be good to mirror a real life board, but whilst the real life board would be room-size, things like that don't translate well onto a 27" monitor unless you can at the least zoom into the various parts - which you can't. I couldn't work out how to move the trains, clicking on the board did nothing, and all I could do is watch a load of numbers blink at me, but with no information how to move the trains apparent.

Koeln - Couldn't even run this program, came up with an error "This app can't run on your PC".

Lodelo (Demo) - Like Arnheim, you get a language choice, which equally seems to translate about 90% of the simulation. However, the area of simulation is very small. There's a huge amount of grey space that can't be filled, you can't zoom into the panel. So much potential, if that panel could fit the whole screen, it might have been a great simulation, but it didn't so it wasn't.

Quite simply put, one of the worst rail simulations I've tried. Much better to stick with SigCent, Siam, PC-Rail, but this one from Signalsoft really was disappointing and a big let-down.

This review is from: Train Control (App)
Said 42 levels, and screenshots showed complex layouts. All you get is three training type levels interlaced with ads and not as shown. Additionally no instruction on what to do is given, you have to work it out yourself. Didn't have the confidence to buy it, as no indication if ads would disappear, and since one didn't get what was shown in pictures and text, can I trust the app?
