PSN CARD 35 GBP WALLET TOP UP  [Online Game Code] by Sony
As a Brit living abroad, it is not possible to make purchases on PSN (as it requires being within the UK and paying with a UK card), so I have often had to resort to 'stocking-up' whenever visiting home.

Controls are remarkably sharp, the stylus is used to look around while you use the d-pad to move forward or backwards etc. The left shoulder button fires, so naturally if you hold your DS you can see how it works. No odd finger stretching required! Weapons are selected by tapping icons on the touch screen and environmental moves such as crouching are also implemented in this way. The game itself is graphically decent for the DS, altough incomparable of course to its home console big brother. The AI of team mates in the game works well enough, the main game is short but… Read more
