Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (PS3) by Sony
5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff, 26 Jan 2008
I traded in the overhyped and tedious 'Assassins Creed' for this and I was very impressed . Its like being in the middle of an Indiana Jones movie , lots of action , humour and the right level of difficulty ..tricky in places but not completly impossible like some games.

It also has probably the shortest loading times i've seen for the PS3 yet , which was a real pleasant suprise..especially compared to all the bum numbing waiting about you have to endure with Assassins.

Go buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, 21 Oct 2005
Depeche Mode are back with a bang , after the frankly very dull 'exciter' I took a risk and got the new album . Its probably there best work since 'violator' ..the opening 4 tracks are especially good. They seem to be refreshed and invigorated ..don't let 'exciter' put you off this is great stuff ..its been doing constant rotation on my ipod...and its great to see Dave Gahan finally getting a chance to contribute some songs to the band .

I was a little confused by one of the other reviews criticising this album for not being like his other albums . 'Holy Wood' was probably his worst album as he kind of descended into self parody and I got rather of tired of him for a long time , but as the first line on 'Golden Age' says "everythings been said before , theres nothing left to say anymore" . 'Golden Age' is full of fantastically sleazy industrial glam anthems that lodge themselves in your head . Highlights for me are 'doll-dagga- buzz- buzz - ziggety - zag' , 'vodevil' and '(S)aint' . The reason it gets 4 stars instead of 5 is its a tiny bit too long and could have lost a couple of tracks , but don't let that put you off… Read more
