1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't even work, don't waste time!, 17 April 2014

Bought it for brother and it wouldn't work. Thought perhaps it was the xbox but nope, another power supply worked without a hiccup.

3.0 out of 5 stars Massive potential but let down by strange design choices, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
GTA is undoubtedly the king of open world games owing to the atmosphere and excellent gameplay they offer. However, I can't really say that this is Rockstar's best effort (that goes to Red Dead without a doubt) especially since it is so forgettable! A great location with pretty much nothing of substance to do. The mind boggles as to why Rockstar decided to not include clubs in one of the world's most vibrant locales. Additional qualms include an absurdly low (even non-existent) amount of interiors to enter. Have heard lots of arguments that they're not necessary, but without solid activities and interiors to enter, the gorgeous world becomes very lifeless and dull. Saving graces include probably the best graphics on a PS3 system, a decent radio selection, and attention to detail. Goes to show that even great developers have their off-days. In the case of Rockstar, this is the product; an admittedly gorgeous game that is just too darn lackluster to sustain interest despite the massive potential offered by the world.

As Sure as the Dawn: v. 3 (Mark of the Lion)
by F. Rivers
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.79

5.0 out of 5 stars Favourite part of the trilogy without a doubt!, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Loved this one, found it brought together a lot of the loose ends in Aretes' story in a clever way with all the added benefits of a Francine Rivers classic; strong likable leads, exceptional writing style, strong biblical foundation, enthralling romance, and incredibly thought-provoking stuff. Again I really enjoyed this one and found it to be a much more fulfilling experience than the preceding books, especially since the light showed itself too strong for the darkness unlike in the previous books which I felt were a little overwhelming (funny since Redeeming Love, possibly my favourite work of fiction, also has very dark themes).

4.0 out of 5 stars Going strong!, 17 April 2014

Had it for about 7 months, still going strong. Does the job and seems relatively sturdy, here's to hoping it lasts a long while. Good buy, especially with the warranty.


Noontec Zoro Professional Headphones - White

5.0 out of 5 stars Constant, trusted companion!, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great sounding headphones with amazing clarity and a good amount of bass, especially for bassheads like me. Have had them for a couple of months now and the soundstage has really expanded to reveal something that is probably found in headphones triple the price. The Zoro's also have very good noise cancelling and retain their clarity even at a lower volume; I've used them in the gym and in libraries successfully with very minimal leakage, while still being able to hear and enjoy my music, unlike with my previous sony mdr-v55s. They also fold and can be stored in a black pouch provided by the manufacturer. I got them for £47 so £35 is definitely a steal. Wholeheartedly recommend as i can't fault it (with the exception of beats by dre comparisons when these are much much better).

Have been using this for a while and I can whole-heartedly say that Apple make brilliant products. It is beautifully designed, easy to navigate out of the box, problems or malfunctions are virtually absent and surfing the internet is just beautiful. Definitely recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like marmite, 2 Jan 2013

This review is from: Leap Year [DVD] (DVD)
Let's be honest, this film is not very everyone. Despite its controversial nature, it's a pretty good rom-com that doesn't quite reach its potential. The main problems people find with this film include a pretty 'normal' male lead, not very glamorous location, and probably a story that is less 'Hollywood' than we are accustomed to. That being said, the interaction between the two leads is very enjoyable, with a couple of laugh out loud scenes dispersed throughout the movie. Sweet, fun and light-hearted rom-com featuring the adorable Amy Adams.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really love this film, 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Salt [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
Very surprised to see that this has 3.5 stars. It's a very entertaining and emotionally gripping film made possible by Jolie's excellent acting ability. May not be to some people's tastes, but this is one of those movies which manages to get you emotionally invested in the story. That's quite a feat in my book, as I often leave a movie theatre not even remembering the story, but this was different. Didn't want it to end.

Although it's a little slow to start, this is one of those movies that really hits its stride once it gets going. Genuinely funny but with a heart. Even though it was predictable, it was an enjoyable and very funny experience so I would definitely recommend it.
