3.0 out of 5 stars Decent but annoying, 14 July 2011
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
I have played most of the missions in this game and I hardly ever play multiplayer in any game. Most of the missions in this game are extremely short and will only last you 3-5 minutes each. The one main thing that I am annoyed with is when you are playing stealth missions (where you have to fly from point A to point B) you must keep an eye on your radar for a white circle, which is the enemies detection range. Enter it and you are spotted. But during the missions you have dialogue between the different characters which takes the radar away and you can easily go right into an enemy.
But I am enjoying the game as it is fun, but it is still not as great as other fighter simulators


Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince (Xbox 360)
Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince (Xbox 360)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great adventure game, 20 April 2010
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This game is an excellent adventure game for any Harry Potter fan. You can explore the grounds of the school in great detail, along with flying, mixing potions and dueling.

You don't get free access at the beginning, but advance through the story and more areas will be unlocked.

The only hastle I had was with the spells (using the analogue sticks), but that was probably just me.

Get it if you like family fun games and/or Harry Potter

3.0 out of 5 stars Good game, bad controls, 20 April 2010
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Supreme Commander (Video Game)
Have played this on the 360 for a while now.

It is a good game. The campaign is long (depending how long you take to complete it) and the multiplayer is good.

The only thing that got me down was the controls for the game. Very bad. But the makers of the game said that it wasn't built from the start for the 360, they were asked to make a 360 version in a small amount of time, so they couldn't make it excellent.

I enjoy it for the PC, but it is also fun on the 360 aswell.


Codex Tyranids
Codex Tyranids

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, 20 April 2010
This review is from: Codex Tyranids (Paperback)
I bought this when I was visiting Games Workshop in Glasgow the other month and had no chance to go to one in months.
The book contains about 96 pages of useful information if you wish to know more on the background of this ferocious hive of aliens or if you wish to start collecting the army of Tyranids.

The background information shows you the battles the different races of the 40k universe have had against the different hives of the Tyranid force. From the first contact with the Imperium by Hive Fleet Behemoth, to the Ultramarines protecting their home system of Ultramar, to the Orks fighting the Hive fleet Leviathan and many more.

It also gives you the background information of each different unit that the Tyranids can put on the field of battle. Along with the rules to use them in your army.

It also includes loads of pictures of the minatures range that Games Workshop sells, that were painted by their experts.

I enjoyed reading this book, even if it is only 96 pages long, along with all the other Codex books Games Workshop have and will produce


Xbox 360 for Dummies (For Dummies S.)
Xbox 360 for Dummies (For Dummies S.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but out of date, 20 April 2010
Bought this before I got my 360 back around 5 months after it was released. Once I got the console and after reading the book, I knew what to do instantly.

The book contains useful information on the hardware and software of the Xbox 360 console. Also the extra (memory cards, hard drive, etc). It also helps with setting up your sound system and explaining the whole High Definition (that had people confused in those days).

What is wrong with it now though is that the information is around 3-4 years old and we now have more superior hardware than when it was released. Like back then it was a 20GB hard drive, while now you can get a 250GB hard drive.

Also the Xbox 360 dashboard has been upgraded a few times since it was released, so you won't get much help then.

All in all, it was a good book on release of the console, but probably won't be now

4.0 out of 5 stars Going to be great, 23 Mar 2010
Been looking forward to this coming out on Bluray for years.
Now people are complaining about this coming out and then the extended edition coming out later.
I will buy this standard one as I am not interested in the extra scenes that I could watch on dvd.
I mean, look at all the bluray disks that come out that are older movies. The extras are in standard definition, not HD.
So my guess is that they maybe bring the extra scenes out in hd but the extra features will be in SD.

Anyway rant over.

Movies were some of the best I have seen in my life. Music was great as well.
And seeing it in HD will be breathtaking on my 46" Sony Bravia tv.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good delicate peice of equipment, 19 Sep 2008
I bought this about a month ago. Been excellent. Laptop used to just shut down when playing Company Of Heroes or Gears Of War. But after connecting this it plays perfectly
But its made of plastic. Cable goes from a USB port to the cooling fan to power it. Unfortunatly the wires connecting to the power supply are delicate and the slight move will disconnect them
