After 2 returns to Amazon due to broken outer boxes that hold the books, i gave up and got a refund. Very poor quality design for a boxset.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value, good quality Casio watch, 3 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely cheap, lightweight watch with a clear and easy to read face.

Fits my slimish wrists perfectly and due to its slim case thickness fits nicely under the sleeves of my work shirts (unlike most mens watches these days)

Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars A reason to buy a Wii U - A Fantastic Game!, 22 July 2014
Having only experienced the wonder and excitement of the Mario Kart series on the N64 back in the late 1990's, I was quite interested in the release of MK8 after seeing the TV ads and various online previews.

However, I had read/heard some pretty negative things about Nintendo's latest console, the Wii U and didn't find myself feeling the need to buy one... until the release of MK8 that is.

How wrong I was, the Wii U really is a great console!!

Doing some very easy research via the Internet will give you a plethora of videos and written reviews of this gaming masterpiece, so there isn't that much more for me to add, except my own personal impressions which are detailed below:

Graphics 10/10 - The crisp textures and bright colours in lovely 1080 HD are simply beautiful.

Sound 9/10 - Excellent quality, varied and imaginative soundtracks for each location. Have only given 9/10 purely down to the stupid Mario voiceover at the beginning of the game "Mario Kart....... 8"

Controls 10/10 - Extremely responsive, makes wonderful use of the Wii U's Gamepad, but can also be played via a Wiimote, Wiimote and Nunchuck, Wii Classic Controller (via Wiimote) and Wii U Pro Controller.

Gameplay 10/10 - Easily the best MK game I've ever played, it really is fun fun fun. Starting quite easy on 50cc level, then more intermediate at 100cc (drifting skills needed for success here) and then the insane 150cc level where you'll be drafting, drifting, using every shortcut you can find and generally trying to avoid those dreaded shells/bombs/banana skins being lobbed at you. I have found that if avoid running out front for most of the race and the blue shells won't be gunning for you and therefore gives you the chance to breeze into 1st for the win quite often!

My advise is to go check out the videos of this game on youtube and you will see for yourselves what a truly fantastic experience this game has to offer for all members of the family, young and old, casual gamer or gaming expert.

My Xbox 360 is now gathering dust due to the awesomeness of the Wii U, MK8 and Zelda Wind Waker HD* (my choice of free game out of the 10 available*)

Extras include a free game download if purchased and registered before 31/07/2014 as mentioned above, the opportunity to gain character stamps that can be posted to the Mii Verse (which is quite fun) and an option to edit and upload your race highlight videos to youtube. I wasn't aware of this feature until playing the game myself, for some reason this option seems to be overlooked in most of the reviews and I've found it great fun posting my uploaded vids to my Facebook profile etc.

The local multiplayer works brilliantly and gives lots of opportunity for friends and family to race each other in the same house and the online mode is amazing and free! (a large dig at Microsoft here) I have experienced no lag whatsoever, this is something that Microsoft and Sony might want to pay attention to!

I wholeheartedly recommend this game. Go buy it now!

4.0 out of 5 stars Suzuki Gladius rear paddock stand, 3 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very light weight but extremely sturdy and easy to use when put together correctly.

Does require assembling but easy enough to put together as long as you have the correct tools (large Phillips head screw driver, small adjustable spanner/socket set and Allen keys)

No tools or instructions are included in the box and therefore why I'm only giving 4/5

3.0 out of 5 stars Musical Meditations MP3, 10 Dec. 2013

I purchased this MP3 to help me unwind, with a hope to aid me get off to sleep and it hasn't really been effective.

Some of the music is relaxing, but i do find most of very repetitive and somewhat boring if i am honest.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent film (as you probably know already) with some nice additional content in the features menu.

Great to see it in HD although i was a little disappointed at the occasional grainy picture, however at this price i am very happy overall.

First class seller, good communication and swift delivery!

Offered by Soprano Entertainment
Price: £44.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun down on the farm, 5 Dec. 2013
Finally, a game that is relaxing to play but also very engrossing and becomes quite addictive rather quickly.

To be honest, this is my first real simulator type game and i am hooked!

Its definitely worth buying in my opinion, especially if you are also looking for something completely different from the usual sports/shooter games as i was.

Highly recommended!
