5.0 out of 5 stars Great Mouse, 4 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very good mouse, great price as well. I use it for gaming as well as browsing the internet etc. It's not specifically designed for gaming but it certainly does the job. The two buttons on the left are very useful as forward/back buttons, I find myself reaching for them on other mouses now that don't have them as well. The button in the center is useful for easily changing the speed of the mouse when needed. There's a useful compartment in the back which nicely stores away the USB needed for the mouse. It looks very good as well, it has a nice, comfortable fell it to it thanks to it's shape. If you're looking for something special it may not be for you but it's better than you're standard mouse and just as cheap if not cheaper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Case I've Had, 4 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a very nice looking case, very sleek design. No problems with it covering any buttons, camera etc. which can sometimes be a problem with cases I've had in the past. The metal is probably slightly lighter in colour than it is made to look in the pictures but it looks fantastic. I've dropped my phones a few times and it's done a good job of protecting the phone without leaving any noticeable marks on the case itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Display, 4 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very easy to put together, instructions are pretty clear, took me around maybe 20/30 minutes to put it together. It's made to be attached to a wall but I have mine on top of another cabinet and it looks fine, great product at a great price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for PC Gaming, 4 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm used to using a PS2/PS3 controller but this was really easy to adapt to. Installation is very easy and it's very easy to get set up and started. It is slightly odd that there is no way to switch it off, you have to leave it for a few minutes to switch off/stop flashing but otherwise it's perfect for what I need for Steam games.

For the price it's excellent and did the job for me. Not the best ledger you'll find but certainly the best value I've seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly The Best Game In The Series, 4 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After being extremely disappointed by Assassin's Creed 3 this is a brilliant return to the series and is perhaps the best game in the series. The main protagonist, Edward Kenway, is an interesting character who goes through a real transformation through the game which makes for a much more interesting sorry than the previous game.

There is plenty to do in a massive in-game map both on land and sea as always with Assassin Creed games. The nautical aspects of the game are very fun, I found myself sailing around boarding enemy ships and taking over naval forts for hours and hours, which was surprising given I didn't think much of the ship battle missions in the previous games. It has definitely been improved for this game.

Despite a lot of the game focusing on pirates it is still an Assassin's Creed game, all of the usual elements are still there and stealth in particular has been improved. There are now more ways to hide from enemies than the usual hay bales - there are more plants, bushes etc. that can be utilised meaning for a more varied approach to stealth missions.

The experience outside of the Animus is also much more interesting. Desmond's segments have often been the most criticised parts of the previous games in the series, but with Desmond no longer featuring they have been replaced with you playing as an Abstergo Entertainment employee in the first person. You walk around the Abstergo offices with limited access at first but these segments eventually become much more interesting as the story progresses...

Overall I'd put Black Flag on par with Assassin's Creed 2, which for me had been the best game in the series up until Black Flag's release. If you're felling slightly tired of the Assassin's Creed series after the previous game I wouldn't let it put you off getting this game, it is definitely worth purchasing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even Now, Arkham Asylum Is Still Brilliant, 31 July 2012
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After playing the demo I wasn't overly impressed by the game & decided not to buy it on release date, but when Arkham City came out & seeing the excitement around it I decided to take a second look at this game. With the low price I ordered a copy & was not disappointed. The game, even now, looks good & plays brilliantly. I'm not a fan of stealth games but Arkham Asylum gets the mix of action & stealth just right to provide a satisfying outcome. The voice acting, animations, boss battles & overall feel of the game is spot on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but no UC2, 31 July 2012
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Graphically Uncharted is still one of the best games around & while multiplayer has improved the game just isn't as fun or as interesting as UC2. Not much has changed since Drake's last adventure, which is disappointing. Gun fights become extremely boring & tiresome with what seems like a constant flow of enemies coming at you. A lack of variation in gun play is also too common with little variation available, despite Drake's ability to climb & jump over almomst anything this isn't used enough in certain parts which could be used to make shooting sections a bit more exciting. The final boss fight in particular stood out as being very unimaginative, something that could have been executed far better was instead an underwhelming quick time event. The charcters, environments & climbing are still brilliant & while UC3 has some memorable moments it just doesn't live up to it's predecessor.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Value, 31 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've compared them with genuine Apple headphones and the speakers/bit that you insert are slightly smaller than the real thing but other than that they look identical. The pause/play & volume buttons work fine however the sound isn't that lound even at maximum volume. All-in-all a good product though & well worth the price.
