PROS: Cheap solution, looks great, competent DIYer can complete in 45 mins
CONS: Fiddly, suction cup didn't work for me, screen has bright spot

Firstly, this is a pretty involving job, you will need a tutorial video. I found this one was the best.

Suction cup wasn't strong enough for me, so needed to use a Stanley blade to remove old screen, which felt wrong, but worked.

Never bend screen more than 90 degrees back,… Read more

Basically, a great idea that proves to be something of a let down. If the quality of components was… Read more
Halo: Combat Evolved - Anniversary (Xbox 360) by Microsoft
5.0 out of 5 stars A classic, improved, 14 Dec 2012
If, like me, you are thinking about buying this game because you have previously completed the original Halo on every difficulty level (several times, and on both first gen Xbox and 360) and are still not bored of it, then you are in for a very, very special treat.

Quite simply, 363 have taken what, I believe, is the best computer game of all time and somehow bettered it.

No subsequent Halo matched the thrill of the original for me, and, despite completing them all, they left me strangely unfulfilled.

Indeed, I turned to Anniversary the day after completing Halo 4, thinking "why have they turned Halo into some generic Gears Of War copy with no decent plot… Read more
