1.0 out of 5 stars Wrong logo, 10 Dec. 2015
You are aware that the image is from Final Fantasy VII and you've used the logo from Final Fantasy IX right? I mean, obviously not.

2.0 out of 5 stars The new inside redesign is nice, but as usual the utter trash that is ..., 8 July 2015
Disclaimer: I own every FF guide that's ever been published for VII, VIII and IX. These are ornaments, that is it. The new inside redesign is nice, but as usual the utter trash that is BradyGames/ Prima comes littered with over twenty nine billion errors, misses out important points and is just in general, crap. If you're looking for an actual guide, only ever buy from Piggyback. Do NOT EVER buy Brady/Prima, they're honestly terrible by comparison.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh. Also, have TWO UK/EU Adapters., 8 July 2015
I don't know what the rest of these reviewers are smoking but OK then. The sound is good, the bass is lacking. And by lacking I mean we cranked it up to the max setting and had the volume up at 75 and it barely touches the mid setting of the bass on my previous speakers, which to be frank, were absolutely crap, so I'm surprised to read all these reviews about "fantastic bass", especially when I based my purchase around some of them.

It'll do if you've never experienced really good bass before, it's honestly not bad. The wireless phone connectivity is nice. And fair warning: that subwoofer is the size of a compact PC. It's not space friendly. Another mystery in the "why isn't the bass better" tale. Tbh with a subwoofer that size I was expecting the bass to blow me off to Germany, and since I mentioned Germany:

This did not come with UK plugs, which wasn't mentioned anywhere when I bought it. The box contained only European plugs, necessitating a run to Tesco. I knocked a star off for this (would have been 4). Either warn the person about to buy it or include an adapter in the box, pretty please <3

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Piggyback, 20 Mar. 2015
As American publishers, Prima and Bradygames have been making Final Fantasy guides since the Playstation era. You would think then that they would have learned by now not to rush production, because as usual it's full to the brim with errors. I've played the Japanese version and was keen to get my hands on an English guide, and having scanned through this I realise that it's money wasted. The paper is poor quality, the maps are incorrect in places and worst of all for any 100%'er, there are frequent errors.

Guide publisher Piggyback which is perhaps coincidentally not an American company, are the only publishers and creators of guides who seem to give a damn about quality. Since FFX their guides have been spot on and rarely contain errors. Sadly they don't seem to have created a guide for Type-0, so my suggestion to all who wish to get the most out of this game is to just use GameFAQs.com. Don't waste your money on this erroneous trash guys.

1.0 out of 5 stars Never ever buy a BradyGames guide, 19 Mar. 2014
BradyGames guides are consistent for one thing only: missing a load of important information. The golden standard for Final Fantasy is always Piggyback. BradyGames are cashing in on this game's re-release by throwing together their old broken guides, and as usual the incredibly poor quality shows.

Remember that the Piggyback guide is based on the PAL version so all the international content from the original PAL release is included in there to begin with. The Piggyback X-2 will only lack the monster creator and Last Mission stuff - which this guide doesn't even have anyway.

Avoid at all costs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sonic's return to form..., 13 Jan. 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I have been a huge fan of Sonic the Hedgehog since his original debut on the Sega Mega Drive. This is a great return to form.

Having played every major release in the 20 years since his beginning in 1991, this is an excellent homage to decades past. Everything still manages to feel new and fresh. There is little story to speak of, though who plays a sonic game for the story?

It's the gameplay that is fun, and the 2D/3D split acts carry the game very well. It doesn't feel as stop/start as one might think when considering the speed differences of the different styles of play. Instead, you recieve an excellent mix of gameplay.

The franchise has taken a dip in quality, what with "Sonic 2006" and the panned "Werehog" sections of "Sonic Unleashed". As well as this, the previously released "Sonic 4: Episode 1" developed by Dimps on behalf of Sonic Team had incredibly poor physics. This all seems forgotten in the great Sonic Generations, which is for the better.

Excellent gameplay
Excellent music

All round fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal Game, a must play for jRPG fans., 13 Jan. 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Final Fantasy VI (Video Game)
This is one of many amazing Final Fantasy titles, and is well worth anyone's time.

The cast of characters has never been so large and interesting, the story is phenomenally told and the graphics were revolutionary time. The only gripe i'd have to state is that the Playstation version has slightly bad loading times compared to the original cartridge.

My honest advice is to either download this from the Playstation store, or play it on an emulator. The reason for this is that there were a few key plot moments lost in translation, as well as parts that were censored for a western audience. This can be circumvented by installing the retranslation patch.

However, if you don't feel up to that, this is always a great alternative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 11 Jan. 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Rayman Origins (PS3) (Video Game)
Having played the first 2D Rayman many years ago, I can honestly say this is a fantastic return to form.

I wasn't a fan of many of the 3D entries, having never played any beyond Rayman 2. This game is beautiful, SO MUCH FUN to play and at times will just make you laugh out loud. I already have the platinum trophy (PS3) and I still want to play it. There aren't many games I can say that about.

Also, it's a bargain.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good - Not the best Red Faction, 8 Sept. 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Honestly, if you've played any of the previous Red Faction games, this is worth the purchase. I feel I need to say that it's not fantastic though.

The game is enjoyable, and really fun. The magnet gun is a lot of fun to play around with, as is reconstruction. The game itself is a linear FPS and has a good coherent story. I would complain that the main campaign is short, and at times it can get slightly boring and repetitive. There were also a few frustrating moments (mainly near the end) that I just ran through the entire level because there is no benefit to actually killing the massive hoarde of creatures that attack you. Seriously, the game will through hundreds of monsters at you in the final places, and it can take a LONG TIME to kill them all. If the last one gets you, you have to do it all over again. Basically, updating the checkpoint system would resolve this issue.

Aside from those points, it is a really enjoyable game with nice graphics, and it really doesn't deserve the bad reviews it has been getting. The main campaign is solid and well presented, but just not as strong as the rest of them.
