Great fun when it works. Total pain in the ass when it has to install updates (constantly) and when the marketing team are so focussed on data capture and up-selling to kids that they put the player experience second.
I remember the day when you turned on a games station and inside 10 seconds you were up and running - playing the game. Maybe its's just me, but that is the fundamental point isn't it - to play the game? Not to me sold to, up sold to Xbox Live, Gold etc.
Countless times my 7 year old has turned on the Xbox eager to get stuck into a game and connect with his friends. Only to discover it needs yet another update. I wouldn't mind if this was a 20 second process, but no… Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Trading on history, 27 Dec 2011
I was truly excited to be introducing the world of Scalectrix to my 4 year old son - however it wasn't as good as I expected.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but one issue..., 18 Dec 2009
I've used both an older version Helly and now this more recent version (Lifa). As a base layer the old version was great, had a cotton feel, wicked well and did the job.
This more recent version has a very different feel to it, I guess best described as a nylon feel. This in its self is not an issue, but having used a few times now as a base layer for winter runs I have to report sore nipples are the outcome from moderate 50 minute runs every time...and that is not what I want or expect from Helly.
I've run in basic cotton t-shirts as well as Nike running tops and never had sore nipples - the only exception being when I got soaked in a downpour on a very long run.
I'm baffled… Read more
