The Legend of Zelda - Majora's Mask (N64)
The Legend of Zelda - Majora's Mask (N64)

5.0 out of 5 stars Is that your real face? Beneath the mask is that really you?, 2 Jan 2001
Epic is the only real way to describe Link's sixth and most stunning adventure. From the James Bond-esque beginning, which features Link clinging on to Epona's leg as the Mask Kid rides away, to the very end, where you finally realise just who the mask kid was, everything is perfect. Everything except the water temple, which is the most frustrating experience ever. In the purest sense, this is how RPG's should be, no matter how much anyone says Final Fantasy 7 is the best. Majora's Mask plays with your emotions, be it with the Postman sobbing in his house while the moon draws nearer, or Anju and Kafei never seeming to get close enough (until the end). Collecting all the masks is a game within a game, and there is not a time when you can't find a new area, where you suddenly find yourself chasing a beaver through some rings in a rapid. Brilliant stuff, and much more involving than anyother RPG could ever be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Listen to it four times, and you'll be hooked, 27 Nov 2000
This review is from: Kid A [MINIDISC] (Mini-Disc)
When I first got this album, I was dissapointed. Dissapointed to the extent that I wrote a bad review of it on Amazon. I would now like to officialy retract that review, and you must all listen to this new one. This album is up there with the Bends and OK computer. To start, the average Radiohead fan will only like stuff like 'Optimistic' and 'How to dissapear...'. Listen to it again, and you will really appreciate how much musical talent the group have. And the lyrics? They are still being contemplated by some of Radiohead's best fans. Buy it because it's from Radiohead, and listen to it because it is some of the best music to have come out of England ever. Ever! By the way, Morning Bell rocks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Even the theme tune radiates comedy, 22 Nov 2000
Trigger Happy is quite simply the finest comedy invention since the invention of sarcasm (circa. 1923). Joly is a genius, who has so little respect for the public it is incredible. My personal favourite from the series is the 1 millionth toilet user award. But then again, all of them are superb. Also, this may be the only comedy show to make school children around the country go around pretending to faint in public places. And is definately the only one to convince people to make huge phones and walk around shouting HELLO! NO, IM SHOPPING! YEAH! IT'S RUBBISH! YEAH, TOTAL RUBBISH!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incoming message! (press select to activate Codec!), 23 Oct 2000
This review is from: Metal Gear Solid (PC) (Video Game)
This is the best. The GBC version slightly lowered my expectations for this, but all of my expectations were, well, wrong. This game is really, really good. The engine is very Resident Evil-ish, with the changing perspective, and the excellent PC only first person mode builds the atmosphere. So much so, that: You realy feel like you are trying to get into that elivator... and you can see it, but you can't... quite... reach it. Stupid guards!

5.0 out of 5 stars Strangely compelling, 19 Oct 2000
This review is from: Quiz Show [DVD] [1995] (DVD)
Quiz Show is simply a fantastic view of not just the show 21, but of the entertainment world. By far the best part is at the end, when the case is being summed up by the people who run 21, and it brings up some interesting questions. Hardly ever has a movie with a subject matter so... sappy, ever had so much appeal. "The sponsers made money, we made money, the contestants saw more money than they ever will again, and the viewers were happy. Who's the victim?"

5.0 out of 5 stars Never knowingly understood, 4 Oct 2000
This review is from: OK Computer (Audio CD)
People who say this album isn't all it's cracked up to be are just - I think - kidding themselves. Truly, this must be the best album that has ever been produced (that I have heard). Every single track is memorable, and the lyrics... wow!
From the melting guitars of 'Airbag' to the deep melody of 'Exit Music (For a film)', everything about this album is excellent. Well conceived songs, well placed lyrics, well sung. Very nice album cover and inner booklet, too.
On Radiohead's website, it says something like 'The above mixture of music requires lots and a little more individual thought'. That's what they say about Kid A, the wacky, over the top physco freak of a fourth album.
For OK Computer, we can just settle for 'Never knowingly understood', and wonder how they came up with such a well worked melding of styles. And Xylophones? Getting to no. 1? I never realised that before!

1.0 out of 5 stars Stop right now!, 2 Oct 2000
This review is from: Kid a (Audio CD)
The problem with Kid A is that we all know what Radiohead can do. Radiohead could revolutioise most any genre they put their minds to. It's a shame that, with Kid A, they have attempted a half-hearted mix of styles, ranging from the traditional guitars (How to disappear completely) to the over the top complete Techno (Idioteque). As a result, they end up looking like a band who are trying to be different just a bit too hard, and do not do it well. After I listened to this, I rushed to my bookshelf and immediately got OK Computer into my CD player. If you really want to hear Radiohead at their best, listen to that...

4.0 out of 5 stars Badly drawn boy confuse us all over again, 6 Sep 2000
This review is from: How Did I Get Here (Audio CD)
The thing about Badly Drawn Boy, is that they have a real talent. The tunes are catchy without being annoying, and that alone is an achievement in itself. The only thing is, that you often begin to hear an odd melding of styles - which is confusing, and sometimes leaves songs empty, when they were really top class. A good example of this is 'Disillusion' on 'The Hour of Bewilderbeast'. The end can leave your opinion of the overall song soured. It is not so clear on this CD, but it's still there. That fact is the only problem, because Badly Drawn Boy are hugely listenable, never too scary, and always maintain a slight humour in their songs (and videos). Very nicely done.

5.0 out of 5 stars This will be one hell of a game..., 4 Sep 2000
This review is from: Harvest Moon 2 (Video Game)
This is as close as you will get to the SNES original as possible. Everything is there, the towns, festivals, people. The love aspect (i think) is there too. Let's all buy this game and celebrate it's perfection!

5.0 out of 5 stars review.., 4 Sep 2000
This review is from: Stranded Kids (GBC) (Video Game)
If you can't see the genius behind stranded kids, then go and buy a wonder swan. There are 10 endings. It is incredibly playable. It varies, if you play it for longer than 10 minutes. You get a monkey, and it is as well done as any SNES rpg, and as it is made by Konami, it has that nice Japanese overtones, where the things they say don't quite make sense. Take my advice - buy this game, Metal Gear Solid (GBC) and Perfect Dark (GBC). Then try and stop yourself playing all three
