Doctor Who: The E-Space Trilogy (Full Circle / Sta&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Tom Baker
10 of 16 people found the following review helpful
Season 18 of Dr Who drew to an end the Saturday evenings of gathering round the TV, fish and chips (hopefully with lots of vinegar) in your lap. I remember it as such, being all of 7 years old, but the Tom Baker years pulled themselves to a close on a bit of a high.

Had the chance to play with this for a short while during some promotional work last week (had to be careful as it was the only 1 in the UK).

Takes the Guitar Hero concept to another level, and allows more of your mates to join in. We had it wired up with 2 guitars, drums, and microphone. Strangely no one wanted to sing...

The drums work on the same concept as the guitar, except you have 4 pads to hit, instead of buttons to press. Someone said somewhere that if you mastered these drums you should consider playing them in a real band. Err, no. Play real drums.

The song choice is adequate, graphically it's pleasing, but as the first review suggests, only go… Read more
