3.0 out of 5 stars Hmmm, 12 Nov. 2004
This game pleased me at first. The visuals are slick and the music understated and fitting. The storyline is engaging, and the level design well executed. The controls too, are simple to learn and effective, even for the most basic user. What lets it down though is the repetitiveness of it all. You navigate your character around an obstacle course of traps and pitfalls, and then you meet some bad people who look like they want to eat your brain. You stand tapping buttons for a few minutes and then when you're done you repeat. The actual level designs are good, and therefore the puzzle-solving fun and often challenging, but there just aren't enough fight moves to hold interest. I soon found the fights a bit of a chore, and this made me reluctant to pursue it. It's probably worth it if you find it real cheap, but be open to some soul destroying button pushing every five minutes..

2.0 out of 5 stars Buy Something Else!, 12 Nov. 2004
This review is from: Crazy Taxi (PS2) (PlayStation)
This game looks like it belongs in a 1980's chip shop. The visuals are very basic, but this is only to fit in with the gameplay. You pick which character you want to play as, but seeing as they're all as uninteresting as the next, it really doesn't matter who you choose. Then you drive along a bit, pick up a customer and then drop them off someplace else. Then you do it again, and again, and again. And again. That's it. You'll be bored within an hour of purchase. The sub games (like human sized skittles) are fun for a short time, but again, are not anywhere near enough to hold anyone's interest. I suggest you get one of the Grand Theft Auto games if you're desperate you drive people around in this manner. If you're not old enough, just buy Burnout 2 or 3, or one of the Need For Speed Undergrounds, but avoid this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging, Hilarious, Slightly Worrying, 9 Nov. 2004
This review is from: Are You Dave Gorman? (Paperback)
Normally when I read a book written by a mental person, it is the story of how they killed many people and consequently live out their days in a dark, dingy prison cell with a man called 'Happy Sal'. This time, however, the book is not about illegal craziness, but rather, one man's obsession with meeting his global namesakes. Dave Gorman (the mad one) and Danny Wallace take us on a global adventure which never fails to turn pages. This book helped me get back into reading with it's instant accessability and great humour. The two authors take it in turns to give accounts of their experience, and the way they play off each other is flawless, and nearly awlays hilarious.
This book is engaging and superbly-written, easily mixing spontaneous adventure with great characters and razor sharp wit. You'll genuinely care about the outcome of this adventure, and therefore, if you're anything like me, you'll be aching to get back stuck in for more.

4.0 out of 5 stars good family fun, 28 Nov. 2000
jingle all the way is an excellent example of traditional, wholesome family entertainment. in my opinion, it contains all of the essential ingrediants of a christmas movie, and is is totally worthy of that elusive christmas day slot. this is the kind of film that leaves you glowing inside, and at the same time, makes you laugh, cry and scream for more. many say that arnie is hopeless as an emotive actor, but this film backs up his fine performance that he displayed in kindergarten kop-yet another movie in which he didn't just pull off stunt after stunt. in summary, everyone should see this film, just for the sheer fact that it will make you feel happy and content.
