5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing game, 16 Jun 2013
i got this on friday the 16th, and just completed it (sunday the 16th), i never really complete games, or have gaming sessions over an hour as i usually get bored, but this was incredible, i couldnt stop playing. Okay there are some bugs, the enemies can be a bit stupid sometimes, but saying that the game is still very challenging.

I never watch cut scene as they bore me, but the cut scenes in this were awesome, its like watching a very very good movie. i wish this game had an open world that i could explore now i have completed it.

only thing i could of hoped for was a longer game, but i still got a good 10-17 hours (cant be precise) of amazing gameplay, best game i… Read more

Hi, i got one for christmas, i set it all up and never got it to work. They collected my broken one and replaced it (which i was happy with) but the second one had the exact same problem.

I googled this problem and others have also had it, i know i was probably just unlucky, they are collecting it again soon, and refunding me. I am going to buy one from a better brand (Panasonic for example).

In conclusion i am very annoyed with this terrible product, but very happy with the customer service, risk buying one if you… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 15 Jun 2011
I didn't buy this on amazon, but i won this book a while ago, i was thinking of selling it oh here just now, i was looking through it again and some of the recipes are amazing, their are some things that i can't possible do and also some ingredients i can't possible get hold of (im just an amateur cook). If you decide to buy it, and i recommend you should, and you aren't a pro chef then i would say that one of the easiest recipe to start off with is on p.350 and the ice creams are relatively easy. Apart from them good luck, you might need it :)

ps. i decided not to sell it, i have to try some of the things in it
