5.0 out of 5 stars unbelievable value, 3 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Martian Panic (Wii) (Video Game)
I managed to get this for just 1.99 and it was fantastic value for money. It's a game in the style of time crisis. A shooter on rails. Games that I always think work really well on the wii due to the excellent controller. Aliens jump out at you and you shoot's as simple as that.some even shake their bottom at you.something my 5 year old thought was hilarious. Graphics are cartoony and very decent. It's bright , colourful and ,apart from the cover art, does not feel like a cheap and nasty budget game.

1.0 out of 5 stars planezzzzzzzzzz, 26 Mar 2014
We watch all the disney films as a family and look forward to every new one. This looks spectacular but it's very very dull and its the first disney film ever that the kids have asked us to turn off. Can't believe another Planes is in the pipeline. Hopefully Frozen is much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game for kids, 26 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this with the new Ben 10 game for my Ben 10 mad 5 year old.To my surprise it was this game that caught his attention. It's very basic as you tilt the remote to move and press 2 to interact and jump. The graphics are also basic but it's all very colourful and pleasant to look at. It's all very nice and sweet yet there's still enough to do and its a decent enough platformer to hold a a littluns attention. It was nice to see him enjoy a game that wasn't based on superheroes or monsters for once. Very impressed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Thorgettable, 2 Mar 2014
As with most of the avenger movies it's fantastic to see the characters you,'ve been reading for years make the big screen. Gone are the days of your only superhero fix coming from 70s Spiderman, Lou Ferrigno and Super Gran. But ,is it just me or are these superhero movies getting a little tired,especially the avenger series.Captain America was average at best,Iron man 3 was shocking and,while this was decent,it never had me on the edge of my seat. The characters and acting was good,but Loki bores the he'll out of me,the token bad elf baddie was very weak, as was the plot, there was too much time spent in Asgard and the ending was a little of an anticlimax. Worth watch but don't get your hopes up.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK. Worth a watch...not a purchase, 21 Feb 2014
This review is from: Snitch [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
The Rock was very good in this but the story is a little slow. Certainly not as action packed as the trailer and cover suggest. He actually plays a 'real man' and not the usual bulletproof action hero. Whilst this is a breath of fresh air the story isnt exciting or gripping enough to lift the film above average. Its ok. Worth a watch but not much more than that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pointless if you have the original, 21 Feb 2014
This review is from: Rayman Legends (PS4) (Video Game)
Firstly let me state that this is a great game. Brilliant in fact and very good value in comparison to other PS4 games. However , if you compare it directly to the PS3 version there's very very little difference. The PS4 version is slightly brighter and sharper but when I tested with my friends which version was which (ps4 version running on one side and pS3 on the other) they regularly got it wrong. Mainly due the fact that it still looks very good on the PS3. So if you have the original I'd honestly say there is very little point in getting the PS4 version. And considering the Ps3 version is £10 cheaper its debatable whether the minor graphical improvement is worth the extra tenner. But if you dont have the original or a PS3 then this is a great, addictive, bright, innovative and thoroughly enjoyable gameand well worth the low asking price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best film this year so far, 16 Feb 2014
This year has already seen a lot of excellent films released on blu ray but to my surprise this impulse buy is the best one released this year...up to now. A return to form for Halle Berry and a gripping edge of your seat thriller ,in the same vein as Cellular. I've recommended this to friends and allhave been pleasantly surprised·

1.0 out of 5 stars Thanks, 12 Dec 2013
Bought this based on the amusing trailer and fantastic reviews.Hoped it would be another Knocked Up. I thought it was terrible. Up there with I dont know how she does it. I know its not aimed at me but my wife also found it pointless, dull, unrealistic. It was just like being stuck on your break at work with 4 very very annoying pregnant people. Only the break seems to last a lifetime. We have 2 kids but still could not relate and still found this incredibly tedious. An absolute crime. I'd have rather kept the kids up an extra 2 hours than put this on.

3.0 out of 5 stars Batbugs, 7 Nov 2013
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
I was initially worried about making this purchase having read many indifferent reviews. At first I was very pleased. The opening sequence very impressive and the plot very interesting. It was just more of the same. BUT unfortunately , only after a couple of hours playing, and after downloading the recent patch, there has been a few very odd moments. Sticking when gliding has happened a few times, getting stuck in scenary but the worst has to be the stealth bits. It was possibe to walk right up to the badguy , him looking directly at you and not seeing you. The AI actually seems very poor in a few places. A lot of parts are still enjoyable and I do want to play through the story. The graphics are excellent and the the majority of the gameplay is great but I'm trading mine in and getting it when its much much cheaper

Bought this arcade shooter based on other reviews. Its a real budget game. scrolling shooter but very awkward to control and not very impressive graphically. Found myself daydreaming while playing. 1942 etc much much better. Boring, awkward and outdated.
