Sturdy case but has a small amount of give which should help on impacts. Genuinely clear case so you can enjoy your customised phone still! Slightly slippier than I'd hoped which knocks a star off but definitely better than having the phone bare.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not as good as the previous Sciences, 12 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed the book, but I didn't feel it was as interesting as the first three Science of the Discworld books. This may be because it looks at religion and sometimes the writing seems a bit Dawkins-esque in how hard atheism is pushed, both not very interesting for me.

The structure is the same as other books, alternating Discworld and real world science chapters. I thought that the Discworld chapters weren't as good as in previous books, sometimes they seemed very short and forced.

3.0 out of 5 stars Awful single player, fun multiplayer., 4 Feb. 2011
The title says it all really, I found the single player game very disappointing but have so far really enjoyed the multiplayer games I've played in. Graphics/sound are good but I can't really seen a big difference between these and previous titles'.

The single player campaign had a number of flaws in my opinion:

1) The enemy AI isn't great, I've had Russians barrel rolling into me and running around like headless chickens with no sense it seems of what a soldier would actually do, although they do seem to have improved the enemies use of cover compared to previous titles.

2) Glitches. The very first time I played the man I was supposed to be following would not move from a pillar he was hiding behind and since the game check pointed just before I had to restart the level. I'm aware these are usually one off things but there have been a few occasions where similar although not as annoying things have occurred.

3) I don't like how disgustingly linear the game is, your tactical options are usually deciding between whether to use the table on the right or the left for cover and that's about it.

4) Not being very fun. Obviously personal opinion but I just don't think this measures up to many other single player FPS campaigns out there and it certainly has no replay value.

But being honest, who really buys a COD for the single player nowadays? It's all about the multiplayer!

Multiplayer matches are very fun, lots of character customisation with weapons/perks/kill streaks etc. You now have to buy all of your new upgrades but this feature is almost redundant as everything is so cheap and you get a relatively large amount of money. You also upgrade perks through completing certain challenges which is a nice feature. The maps are pretty well thought out and generally one team doesn't have an obvious advantage when they spawn, a pet hate of mine.

I'm starting to get a bit sick of the amount of rage quitting that goes on during games with no penalty for the quitters, I think they should be docked experience/COD points to try and deter this behaviour. In a quite a few games now I've had the game freeze once the final scoreboard has come up and this requires you to turn the Xbox off and on again.

So in conclusion, don't expect to be blown away by this game despite all of hype, it's very much like the last few with little new to add to multiplayer and a much worse single player campaign. 3/5.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting read, 17 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An interesting book, that (almost) does what it sets out to do, it fully explains the derivation of E=mc^2 from first principles and the where this equation can be applied. Many helpful diagrams are provided, and each point they make it laid out and explain in a clear cut well thought out manner, although some may feel they labour the occasional point too much.

The '(almost)' isn't the authors' fault, they spend the last the part of the book trying to explain the origin of mass, and 'why mass is', which they attribute to the Higgs boson, but this information could all become redundant in the next two or three years if LHC at CERN shows the Higgs boson doesn't exist. EDIT: Looks like I was worrying for nothing since they found it!

Apart from that minor quibble which isn't the authors fault I felt it's an enjoyable book for a layperson and whilst some parts lack sufficient scientific depth for someone with a basic background in the subject I still enjoyed the read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and fully recomended., 13 Aug. 2006
This review is from: Come What(ever) May (Audio CD)
Come What(ever) May shows just how much Stone Sour have matured since there first

self-titled album was realeased. Corey Taylor (Slipknot vocalist for those few who dont know)

shows off his impressive singing while backed up by the formidable duo of James Root

(another Slipknot member) and Josh Rand who are on guitars and a pounding rythem section formed

of bassist Shawn Economaki, and new drummer Roy Mayorga (the old drummer left due to a family member having some type of

illness I believe). Even though Corey will always get the most spotlight as frontman the guitarists deserve

some real recognition here as the dual guitar solos and more complicated riffs show the biggest maturement from the first album.

The most impressive guitar work has to be on the track "Hell & Consequences," where Josh Rand

shows off the diversity of Stone Sour by moving away form the cliched rock solo and going for a more exotic feel.

The lyrics of this album are more mature than that of Slipknot's and arn't jsut random words thrown together to make a song

(please note i am a massive Slipknot fan so no flaming me for saying that). Most of the lyrics to this album are more related to a younger audience

but on the track "Come What(ever) May," there is a very different feel to the lyrics, with a more specific style to the writing and

sounds as if it's an ode to President Bush. Taylor sings, "Can you take away every single day; That we have given to another false prophet,"

and later goes on to sing, "Show your pretty face; hide the bitter taste; You're still the rapist of an entire nation."

My impression of this band is an excellent one having just recently seen them at Download Festival i can fully vouch for them having both the album

and aving seen them live. They really have a fresh feel which is good with all of the Metallica and Maiden wanabes out there this is a nice surprise.

They show a great diversity of music even having a ballad in there in the form of 'Through the Glass.' A great buy i would fully reccomend this! 10/10
