5.0 out of 5 stars Genuinely a new battery, 14 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After two failed attempts to get a "new" battery from other sellers, both of which failed to hold their charge longer than the old battery in my phone, suggesting that they were used themselves, this one did the trick. Packaged as if new and holding its charge really well, I am now satisfied. I now know where to get my replacement batteries from. Thanks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Comparisons with Uncharted are both inevitable and justified, 21 Dec. 2014
Comparisons with Uncharted are both inevitable and justified. Where the Uncharted series raised the bar and showed us what the PS3 could do, earlier incarnations of the Tomb Raider franchise on 360 and PS3 were disappointing, to say the least. But in time for a new generation of consoles, Square Enix have produced a masterpiece.

With a nod to its foundations, Tomb Raider reboot may not have the comic charm of the aforementioned trilogy, but it does have the fluid gameplay, and great storytelling, but with a dark and heart pounding action adventure narrative. Beautiful to behold, difficult to put down, and most importantly fun! This is Tomb Raider without much puzzling, but with better controls, more visceral combat, and fluid platforming.

In two words, get it, and say goodbye to a day and a night, because you won't want to put it down until you have completed it, and even then you will want to return.

Obviously a used product. It drained within a few hours. Very disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap thrills, 11 Sept. 2014
I picked this one up ages ago really cheap and it has been languishing on my pile of unfinished games ever since. Having now worked my way through some of that pile I reached for this one and have been pleasantly surprised. Offering way more choice for combat and tactics then COD, this is really fun. Remote weapons, vehicles, large open battlefields, and objectives that you choose how to approach. Infinite respawns do make it a touch on the easy side for the hardcore gamer, but for some cheap thrills you can do a lot worse.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not really worth a purchase but maybe a rental., 22 Aug. 2014
This review is from: Robocop [Blu-ray] [2014] (Blu-ray)
Slick remake that lacks the energy, dark humour, and depth of the original.

5.0 out of 5 stars Accessible and atmospheric fun!, 18 Aug. 2014
Having enjoyed the atmosphere of the first two Bioshock games, but finding certain elements of the gameplay not to my taste, I was unsure about getting this one. I should not have been so reticent. Keeping the atmosphere, the gorgeous graphics, the immersive story, while simplifying the genetic mutation gameplay dynamic, the developers have created a fantastic and original take on the FPS that even those who prefer those in the real world will enjoy immensely. Get it, you will not regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars How did I miss this one?, 7 April 2013
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Singularity (PS3) (Video Game)
This is a must for any FPS fan. A few basic puzzles do not cover up what is a fun, scary, action packed, roller coaster of blasting freaks, mutants, and soldiers. It might not be a COD, and it might be as linear as a pencil, but its as fun as any other game I have played this year. At full price it may have been missed, but for under a tenner its a bargain shooter you should definitely give a blast.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not so good, not so bad, 2 Jan. 2012
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
I was weary about getting this but as I am usually happy to give most games a go for under £6 I thought why not.
The reviews I had read had veered to the negative but I am not so sure.

Certainly not as polished as the Battlefield or COD franchises and not really as good as its predecessors, COJ - The Cartel is not the worst FPS I have ever played. It is quite fun and fast, the weapons have variety and certainly all handle differently. The one player game is long and the game contains a variety of environments and gameplay styles. Nice ideas include individual character story lines and objectives, and fun driving and shooting sequences.

There are some sloppy graphical issues but these do not get in the way of the game play.

If you are a FPS fan like myself this game is worth a punt if you find it in a bargain bin, just do not expect too much even if you liked the previous games in the series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun and unpretentious blast from the past, 18 Dec. 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
I was not too sure about getting this one. Although a long time gamer the lure and appeal of previous Duke games had been somewhat beyond me, but seeing as this one was under a fiver I thought I would give it ago despite the luke warm response to it. I was right to do so.

I therefore came to this with no expectations. There are some nice ideas here, and some nods to older, and some might say better shooters. COD this is not, but this has a real fun factor in it and I found it hard to put down. Yes, it is dated not just with its ridiculously pubescent and misogynistic protagonist, but also its level design, graphics, and gameplay. But that just made me giggle at his one-liners and nostalgic about the simplicity of a game that pretends to be nothing but what it is, a blast.

As long as you are not easily offended, have not too many expectations, enjoy FPS games that require little or no thought, and can pick this up for a bargain price, you should not be disappointed. Oh and one thing. If you have any kids under 18 in your household DO NOT let them play this game. It is 18 rated for a reason!


Red Dead Redemption (PS3)

5.0 out of 5 stars Read Dead Redemption ROCKS!, 7 Nov. 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Welcome to the USA in the early part of the 20th century where men were men, and women were ladies or prostitutes, a place where herds of buffalo still sweep majestically over the plains, a place where you are conveniently placed on the Mexican border so you could enjoy stereotypical Mexican bandito accents to your heart's content.

It is a time of change. The old ways of the frontier and lawlessness are being pushed aside by technology and civilisation and the only way to fight fire is with fire, and this is where you come in. You are misunderstood rogue, a family man who fell foul of the law through no fault of his own and forced into hunting down and handing out justice to those who would destroy this fragile new Eden.

So saddle up, grab those irons and hunting knife and let's play in this sandpit. And what a joy it truly is. Lots to do, lots to shoot at, a terrific story, great attention to detail in the graphics and the gameplay, and the perfect level of difficulty makes this game ride into the sunset leaving us teary eyed and wanting more.
