Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 (PS3)
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 (PS3)

3.0 out of 5 stars Not really worthy of a super hero, 10 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Marvel ultimate alliance 2 really just suffers from one major problem. Its quite boring. Even though you have a wealth of marvel characters to play with each with special powers etc the game is just very very repetitive.The environments are quite small with the camera angles being quite tight so you never get a good look at the whole level and it makes the game very claustrophobic. But its main issue for me is the fact that the level design is exactly the same from level 1 all the way to the end with no variation. Story is quite good but really seeing as I had to pay over £25 for this old game, not very impressed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, 20 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is a bargain, it looks just like the official controller, feels like the official controller and plays like a sony one as well, and its about £30 cheaper.
No brainer, don't by the official one get this instead

5.0 out of 5 stars A great slash and hack RPG, 19 July 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Dungeon Siege 3 (PS3) (Video Game)
Great game, if you liked the baulders gate dark alliance games on ps2 you will love this.Lots of weapons and armour to mix and match, loads of side quests and hours of play, good graphics and plot.Bit of a winner


The War of Vengeance: The Great Betrayal (The Time of Legends)
The War of Vengeance: The Great Betrayal (The Time of Legends)
by Nick Kyme
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Great start to the war of the beard, 15 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Time of legends has been a series of books getting to the heart of the warhammer world. The great betrayal was a great start to one of my favourite times,the war of dwarfs and elves.The book has great descriptions of the dwarf realms at its hight and the story goes along at a good pace with lots of plots and tension as the elves and dwarfs try to prevent all out war between their two races. Great characters and a well written story, cant wait for the second.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautifull Game, 12 July 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This game is a true credit to the ps3, it has some of the most beatifull graphics and stunning vista's that i've seen on the ps3.The controls for the game are smooth, good camera angles and great levels with a good mix of puzzle, time trials and combat mean that this game never gets boring.
The combat can be a little bit samey but no more than say god of war 3 and there are enough combo's to learn to keep it interesting.
The game also has 4 difficulty settings, loads of collectables and trial modes which means that it gives you hours of gaming, this is by no means a short game.
Then for the icing on the cake, the great Patrick Stewart voices the games story and he reads it with his usual shakespearian greatness (the story by the way is a good one, love, loss that sort of thing)
If you were going to by this game, i would say: Make it so!

3.0 out of 5 stars Paid more for worse games, 2 July 2013
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dark Void (PS3) (Video Game)
I was surprised to see dark void on a list of the worst ps3 games ever, sure its not one of the best, but there really are a lot worst games out there. If your a fan of 3rd person shooters this might be a game to have a go on seeing how cheap it is, the graphics are good, choice of weapons is quite varied and on hard mode the game can be challenging in parts while not being overly difficult. Story wise and voice acting, sure its not uncharted or anything and you'll most likely play it once and trade it in but it is fun. So in my eyes if you get a copy of this for £5 or so its a bargin, and you'll get a nice little trophy set to if your a hunter.

2.0 out of 5 stars Time to hang up the blades of chaos God of Bore, 29 April 2013
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
Oh dear, its always a sad day when a once mighty game franchise reaches the point when the stories have run dry and the developers are just riding on the back of a once good name.This I think is what has happened to God of War.
The "story" is set before the first GOW game after Kratos has killed his family and is really just the same old "I'm really angry and p***ed off and I'm going to kill everyone" kind of plot which dosent tell us anything new.
Sure the graphics and the music are as great as ever but the combat and magic is starting to get really tired and nothing really ground breaking has been achieved with this offering,if anything its worse,they've taken away the ability to parry and the magic is poor.I think the fact that a multiplayer feature was added really says it all that the developers were not that confident with the single player campain.They also have got rid of the challanges section of the game and there's no sex mini game which was always a good laugh and the part of GOW you always wondered what they would do with it this time.
No its gone they same way as resident evil and prince of persia, stories done, it was a good story but now it needs to be left alone before a good series is remembered for bad games.
If you've been playing GOW since the first one came out in 2005, i wouldn't bother buying this, your not missing anything,this game is very boring to play!

2.0 out of 5 stars Just wait abit longer and get more for your money, 9 April 2013
This review is in no way saying that this is a bad film.The film itself is very very good with great acting, great sweeping vistas of middle earth and a good story and i would give it 5 stars.Its just that as with the lord of the rings trilogy they are releasing a special edition DVD at the end of the year with extra scenes and loads of documentories.So unless you only want the theatrical version and have no interest in anything else i would hang on till christmas as it will be a nice little extra pressie in your stocking (and it will save you buying the film twice)

Space Marines Codex

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for background history of the space marines, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Space Marines Codex (Paperback)
This book is no good if you want an army book with current rules as it is out of date.If you just want to read abit of history about the space marines and get some ideas about painting and colour schemes then this book is very decent and abit cheaper than the more recent editions.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sturdy keyring, 4 April 2013
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars

This keyring is very sturdy and will not break like keyrings on a chain will after a few weeks.The leather and the coin of the jollyroger are of a high quality and the picture is good and crisp.Worth every penny.(also enough space on the ring for alot of keys)
