5.0 out of 5 stars Easy, clear and helpful and makes me sound like a pro.... What else could you want on your first week or so on the kit!!, 3 May 2016
I have jumped into my sons unused Roland kit. Saw this and thought have a go. Yes there's a few pages on setting up but some handy pages about techniques. I've come from guitar a few years back and always wanted to be able to drum. After a few days I'm smashing out some good sounding grooves, Thanks to this book.
Want to be able to buy and play the guns n roses drum along, so hope I can get to a sufficient level.

Easy, clear and helpful and makes me sound like a pro.... What else could you want on your first week or so on the kit!!

5.0 out of 5 stars super little device, 7 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
super little device, works perfectly with an S4 samsung.. Picture actually fills screens as you would expect. Also customer service was exceptional, with emails being responded to asap. Little problem with delivery but that was royal mails fault not the merchant.

super device super price..

5.0 out of 5 stars Great card Great price... bloody good performance..., 5 Nov. 2014
Super card, had this one day, and in my i3-3220, 8gb ram. Im surprised the fps im getting. Had one problem the card wouldnt boot past post, just updated the bios in mobo and was away!!!

With my HD7850 was getting mid 20-30 in metro Redux in ultra, now getting 90s, aliens runs ultra full settings in around the 100s!!! It does run quite hot but has great software to manage this (afterburner, gaming app) the latter gives you three modes for the card, overclock, gaming and silent ,and a extra cooldown mode. In OC mode i saw a clock at 1400mhz!!! Much better than AMd software. Nvidia all the way for me.

This card can give you what you may think is unreachable performance on **not so super hardware. Just makes sure your PSU is 500w or higher, min is 500 and runs fine.

..and guess what (touch wood) no coil whine on this MS1 gtx 970

Great card Great price... bloody good performance...

Sorry amazon got from scan.co.uk MUch cheaper!!!

and the led logo on the side is customisable and a great touch.!!

4.0 out of 5 stars At last a decent Rally game!!, 5 Nov. 2012
Ive played the other 2 WRC, as much as they were okay severall things let them down, mainly the GFX were awful making it hard to stomach.

WRC 3 has some great graphics especially on the cars. Handling is good, reminds me of WRC playstation days of old!! I just want to say ive been using the Microsoft Speed Wheel, and frankly ths should endorse WRC 3, it really works well.

Better than DIrt? If you like traditional rallying it is. The ROAD TO GLORY mode has tried to steal ideas from dirt. Ive only just started playing it its okay.. I miss the team management from the last 2 wrc games, this one seems much more dumbed, down. Sponsors are only for visual purpose now and upgrades are just win & install type, not really much to think about. Pretty much works on a XP/rep points awards for unlocks, mechanic. Is okay i suppose, still has a nice livery editor. Also they have added Extreme events like smashing objects etc, at leat they didnt add gymkhaha!!!

But then theres just a full out WRC CHAMPIONSHIP mode, which will please all WRC fans, with damage and mechanic repairs.

I traded Forza Horizon for this and im glad i did.. i appreciate WRC games.. it hasnt all the spit n polish as DIRT or Forza but it still keeps your attention just as much.. Fighting the car with the speed wheel is the best thing ive done on a rally game!!!!

I do like WRC 3... Improvement to the game ...? There is a few issues/bugs, tiny ones, but nothing to spoil this rally rich game..

yea but its nearly there!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Overrated because its forza!, 4 Nov. 2012
What can I say put a forza logo in it and the press love it.

They put sim handling in the game but the whole game encourages arcade driving - cutting corners , bashing cars out if the way , getting hit when braking or sideswiped!!

I was bored in one night. Gfx , atmosphere cars are good. But it just doesn't work well with forza structure. Dirt and nfs and wrc do it all better minus the cars and gfx. Also no damage so driving like an idiot is unpunished. Still has the stupid PI system too.

Sorry utter rubbish. Forza just stick to track games.

3.0 out of 5 stars It aint that bad!!!, 19 Mar. 2012
This review is from: Bodycount (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
OKay a brief comment...

This game aint that bad it was fun to play thru, no COD or battlefield, but ay........

-Good destruction
-Long play time on HARD
-Weapons were okay and effective
-Audio & Visual was good
-Ai were clever with flanking moves and hunted me like crazy
-Bargain if cheap

-Few level scenes
-Repeated level design with varying routes
-Some awkward checkpoints
-More weapons and upgrades would be nice
-The upgrades were next to useless
-We are the grenades offline?
-No storyline just destruction!!!

For a 5£ bargain it isnt bad for one playthrough, i had good fun and it reminded me of Black. It had no storyline that made sense but the firefights were fun and explosive...... Dont take this one so seriously if your a cod or BF fan boy, its just pure manic arcade fun with the odd stealth scene and great destruction..

5.0 out of 5 stars Its not just about Graphics you know!!!, 28 Nov. 2011
Well i got this £13 in gamestation, so hearing about the bad reviews and some average ones, i took the plunge. Im not exactly a WRC fan like im a F1 fan, but i do watch it occasionally and have done the odd rally track day. (which was awesome btw)


I did have the previous WRC game ,and i quite enjoyed that too even with its flaws. I must admit firstly the graphics and visuals of this game isnt the greatest, YES sometimes it feels like your playing a PS2 game, but Forzas visuals is very realistic, but its racing and immersion is somehow lacking. This is the other way round, it gets rallying spot on in my opinion!! The handling (especially without assists), the events, the career its all authentic to me here, and YES the career has been much improved... you can now hire staff do R&D etc, in a way its better than F12011 "live the life"! The AI is very very challenging on higher levels. The amount of fun you have will always be based on how much you like real rallying, hence the 4 star.

-Good handling, surfaces feel different, and cars have their unique traits.
-Career much improved, hire staff, choose sponsors, do Research & development on part etc with a football season style calender.
-Lots of cars & WRC licensed
-Lots of events with realistic environments and real stages from the WRC
-Tough AI without assists and high AI skilled players will find this a challenge
-Really cheap now in stores!
-Rally school is handy for handling tuition.
-Also just take part in normal WRC season without the effort of getting there (career)

-Visuals & Audio still from the PS2 days, sometimes the odd camera angle looks real, but most looks bland not many effects


To me people go on too much about visuals, DIrt forza etc and these games are shallow, WRC concentrates on the thing its representing, and thats realistic RALLYING!!!
Im convinced if this had the visuals of DIRT/Fm then it would be the best rally game in existence!!
Better than DIRT??

Yes if you want a rallying game ......

5.0 out of 5 stars Its great for me?!, 7 Nov. 2011
Im no coffee expert, and this is my first time using a coffee machine. But me and my GF just wanted something that tastes a little more like what you get in the shops...So looking around we went for this one. i didnt buy from here but at the same price in asda...

For me its simple to use, easy to read manual, and the display makes operating really easy. It serves the drink very very hot (my worry in other models) and the milk frother, although i cant use properly yet, is great..it creates a lovely hot frothy milk. You get a booklet as well, of how to create different types of coffees, and also tell you hot to draw hearts with the milk lol
It warms up quickly and doesnt take long to do a esspresso. As i said i still need to master the frothing milk bit, but once i do im sure i can create a lovely coffee like the shops.. Even with normal milk the taste is a huge improvement over instant coffee. I havent used the pods yet, i bought some nice illy coffee from the shops and its perfect so far. Im not sure how loud it is compared to others its nothing deafening when creating the coffee, its easy to clean and looks nice on the kitchen side...

From a coffee "beginner" its perfect and great cups of coffee are finally in reach with this bit of kit

After playing this game for some time, im getting bored with the Event list Format. theres no Season mode with points and qualy. So its the same thing every race with different cars, Start 8th or 6th then fight to the front in a few laps. Yes the Visuals are amazing, but this is not a true racing game, more of a arcade car library to test your cars on.

Please T10 next forza add points season as options otherwise this game gets broing very quickly.

Sorry Im wrong before this game is still STERILE>!!

-Graphics unmatched on xbox
-Lots of cars
-Lots of events
-Good arcade type racer
-AI can be quite clever, but very predictable.
-Online content unrivaled lots to do, if racings not your thing

-no real season mode with points and Qualification, just win after win! NOt racing
-Not for Race enthusiasts after pure track racing
-no wet weather racing
-PI on cars on AI rubber band badly.
-Out of all cars only a handful are competitive offline. Unless do upgrade AI then all the cars are the same arcade rubbish!
-Not for True motorsport fans who appreciate true racing.
-Still some bugs T10 wont fix
-you only ever fight with one car from the pack the rest are left behind.
-Event list is far too boring too ever complete, season mode is confusing since most of it doesnt count to the list completion

Sorry ive gone off forza and deep down its no different from any other forza! Theres better less common racers out there!! Dont be a sheep!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't listen to the winging!!! This is a good game!, 21 Sept. 2011
I wont go on about the story and mechanics of the game as many people below me have already done that.

Bottom Line

This game is pure fun, and very addictive you always just want to do that last -close by- mission, which then leads to another mission. Ive racked up a lot of hours on this, and still only 14% progress on the actual story, because Ive been doing lots of side missions. The combat is fun, especially when u get a strong weapon and as a zombie runs towards you u hit him in one smash and his head blows up, as his body continues on running!! The graphics are good, the scenery does remind you of being on holiday, but it has a very eerie feeling. The sound is spot on its a very quiet game and the mons of a distant zombie is soon the soundtrack to the game!. The weapon upgrades and skills are well done and you start looking after your modified weapon a little more, stratgey plays well here.
Not the scariest of games out there, a few times a zombie has caught me unawares and made me jump but nothing that is dreadfully scary. The story line could be out of a b-movie not great but believable in a zombie apocalypse world. Now the BUGS!! well to be honest i was worried when i got this because of the bad press, but honestly trust me its all over inflated garbage... Theres nothing ive had thats broken this game for me AT ALL! yes ive had a car stuck on an object and ONE weapon i lost when thrown and my fast travel destinations disappeared (nothing a quick reload didnt fix) seriously theres nothing ive had thats stopped me having fun!! Ive absolutely NOT had a save game crash or delete!! and this is on XBOX let me remind you...

If you like zombie films and games like condemned and far cry with an slight RPG element you will love this as i have!!!

-lots to do= side missions, main plot missions very addictive cant put it down
-Audio and visuals very immersive and eerie, some how they have made a vacation island quite eerie!
-Weapons upgrades and character skills are nicely done and nothing over complicated
-Combat is fun and quite rewarding when u get that head smash in your first hit!
-One of the best games of the year

-Few MINOR bugs do exist (getting stuck on objects, or the odd lost weapon) nothing game breaking!
-Car controls could of been better (no look back or handbrake)
-Items and objects do reappear which in a way takes away the survival feeling but, it in turn does make the game more fun and bearable.
-hard to get a head shot when throwing weapons with the auto aim taking over.

DEFINITE 5 star game dont believe the BS!
