Hi All,

Please use this review as a guide when upgrading from iLife '08 as not alot has changed.

First impressions of iLife 09 = Not great.

iMovie 08 was very poor so any addition to that to make it better is good. it is a bit better but to make anything half way decent takes alot of time and it can't stand up to stand alone film editing software (even the cheap stuff).

iPhoto 09 has a few new features like faces. Faces is not very good and you have to confirm the pictures yourself (i am not going to scroll through 8000+ photos and click on everyone to confirm the people!!)
Places is cool (if you have a camera with GPS it is even better) but… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting facts right, 3 Dec 2008
I would like to say I have been enjoying this game for around 20 hours now and except for dying alot it has been all fun.

RCook 2 star rating - "If its meant to be a FPS (which I assume it is?)" This game is an RPG. I have not seen anything that says… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Rent It First, 3 Dec 2008
After reading the reviews I decided to Rent this game and im very glad I didn't buy it.

It is mainly the same as NFS Most Wanted so if you enjoyed that (which i did) then you will like this game. However it is very short. I finished all the single player achievments and 2 multiplayer achievments in around 6 hours.

All in all a fun game to play but I would really question the lifespan of the game. I still have 4 days left to play before taking it back and im bored of it!!

DO NOT compare this game to Forza 2, PGR 3 or 4, Pro Street, the Burnout series or NFS underground 1,2 etc as the only thing you can base it on is Most Wanted.

The story is… Read more
