New Music For Amnesiacs - The Essential Collection ~ Sparks
I've always had a mixed relationship with the music of Sparks, not quite 'into' them enough to call myself a dedicated fan, although I loved their two best known singles from the late seventies, I never invested my money in any of their albums until Gratuitous Sax when Simon Mayo plugged it to death on his Radio One Breakfast Show. It was the beginning of a new era for Sparks, and I've pretty much been onboard ever since then. My next purchase was Plagiarism, so most of the songs on this album of reinvented old material were the first time that I'd ever heard them, and right up until the release of this compilation i'm reviewing here, they were still the only time I'd ever heard them.

The interface is probably the most user unfriendly that I've ever encountered in any software. The air traffic control does not work properly, communication is established and then lost half way through taxiing to the runway, and yes, I am aware that… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Be warned, 11 April 2014
There's a few things to consider before you part with your money for this game. On the positive side, Sega have done a magnificent job of porting the Classic version of Football Manager over to the Vita, everything from the PC version of the game is in there and it looks great on the Vita screen. However there are a few significantly negative aspects of this game - unless you have near perfect eyesight, then you WILL struggle to read the writing on the screen. I sometimes need to wear reading glasses, and I have to wear them to play this game. If you're buying from a shop, look at the writing on the back of the box, some of the writing in the game is smaller than that! The only other… Read more
