Eagle Strike Cassette (Alex Rider)
Eagle Strike Cassette (Alex Rider)
by Anthony Horowitz
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Alex Rider is back. But maybe not better than ever., 28 April 2012
Yet another installment of the Alex Rider series. Yet another huge boss battle at the end. Don't get me wrong, this book is great, and now the series has ended ( read all of them, enjoyed all of them) I have noticed that all books, or nearly all books have ended with the bad guy/woman dying, and Alex Rider escaping with either a few little cuts and bruises, or a fatal gash or wound. Maybe AH could have done more than one book where the bad guy escapes and is on the run, or something in that style. Now you are probably wondering, why has he given this book 5* when he just keeps critising it? Well, now we move on to the good parts. Suspense, great description, and amazing action have kept me through to the very end, and I just couldn't put the book down, because my muscles wouldn't obey me. I'm sad that the series has finished, but maybe it was time. This book wasn't the best in the series, but all of them have succeeded. Great book! Recommended for ages 10-13.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good game for the younger audience-, 28 April 2012
This review is from: Mini Ninjas (PS3) (Video Game)
Well, this game is very fun, with the ninja prospect taken quite lightly. This game is for the younger audience ( 6-9 yrs) but it makes some good days of gaming. A bit dry, with the campaign being quite short. Some levels, especially the 'avalanche' level, are very frustrating. This is certainly not a case of being a bad or good gamer, it's just that trying over 15 times to complete one very short level doesn't appeal to younger children. I would also like to point out that this game is slightly overpriced. It's been released in 2009, yet Amazon seem to keep this game's price pretty high. Anyhow, very good game with good graphics and a lot of variety.
Gameplay- 8/10
Graphics- 7/10
Length- 5/10
Overall- 7/10

4.0 out of 5 stars It's better than Winter Sports, but lacks some sports..., 22 April 2012
This review is from: Vancouver 2010 (PS3) (Video Game)
This game, to sum it up, is very good. For me, it captures the feel of the Winter Olympics, and the disciplines are realistic and challenging. But. It lacks cross-country and biathlon, two of my favourite Winter Olympic events. But it makes up for that, with Snowboard, Ski Jumping, and various downhill events, including Super-G. It doesn't really have any career of some sort, only Training and Individual Events. So it would get boring after a while, but because games like these are very rare, it's not too bad for it's genre. Recommended for any Winter Sports fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Skiing Europe- Great info, but lack of variety.., 21 April 2012
This book has brilliant information over the major ski resorts in Europe. The pictures are stunning, and it has internet links to hotels, bars, pubs, ski rentals, and tuition. The one negative I have to give though, is the lack of resorts. Yes, it has all the 'major' ones, but there are no resorts in Germany, or Poland. Germany, of course, has the Bavarian Alps, and Poland has at least five major resorts. That said, the resorts included have a heap of info and detail, with how many blues, reds, and blacks there are, how many km from the nearest airport, highest lift, town altitude, amount of varied lifts, e.t.c. Maps are included. The following countries they include-
- Austria ( 19 resorts)
- Andorra ( 2 resorts)
- Bulgaria ( 3 resorts)
- Finland ( 2 resorts)
- France ( 36 resorts)
- Italy ( 20 resorts)
- Norway ( 3 resorts)
- Slovenia ( 2 resorts)
- Spain ( 2 resorts)
- Sweden ( 2 resorts)
- Switzerland( 23 resorts) Total Resorts- 114

Also, this book is from Nov 2008, so do not rely on the resort prices. But, if you are a beginner, this book is a must!

5.0 out of 5 stars very good......but not perfect, 26 Oct. 2009
To start with when i got the game i started straight away thinking that this will be the unbeatable game of the season..... and i wasn't far off....well if you were a professional gamer waiting for a challenge you would be disappointed because you would finish it in(1-3 days),because after an hour of playing you would be bored.But if you were a begginner it would suit you perfectly.
The graphics=10/10
the graphics are so realistic,with the photo mode you can see your driver and the inside of car and much more.You can see every inch of the track! (UNBEATABLE!)
The choice of cars=9.9/10
you can choose every car in the world(except for a Ferrari)from the new vw scirroco
to the buggati veyron and the koenigsegg.the best choice of cars in the whole nfs series.
as i said the choice of cars are excellent but how are they on the road?
some of the cars like the dodge challenger are really uncontrolable and some of the cars just go bumpy on the road,and the buggati just goes too quick,but if you chose a sensible car like the bmw it is fine so overall ok.
Would highly reccommend to any NFS fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars really good but sometimes annoying, 2 Sept. 2009
this game is very good but not great for example the one thing that is bad about this game is that when you get busted by the police you might lose your car and that means everything you have worked on your car will get lost.then comes the diffuculty,i mean that if you're an amateur you will not get far in this game so you have to be a proper gamer to progress this game.but still the choice of cars in excellent you can have up to 50 cars if you count all the others,so aswell as this the graphics are great ,and the one thing i love about this game and well the reason i bought this game is because of the cops lots of other racing games havent got cops so this is really good.the police might use roadblocks spike strips helicoters and lots of other things to stop you.
i would highly recommend this game...much better than burnout.

1.0 out of 5 stars really bad game, 28 July 2009
when i first bought cm3 i loved it all the new weather conditions and cars.then i bought wrc 4 and i thought it was terrific and i thought it was great the gameplay and co-driver especially the new group 1600 and extreme cars.i had say for a year after i bought cm4.it was a huge disappointment.the cars just damage themselves so easily and if you hit into a sign you will stop so easily!unlike in wrc when everything is easy to understand,however in cm4 everything is so complicated!
choice of cars=5/10

4.0 out of 5 stars good but not as good as the others, 27 July 2009
this game is an excellent game for like beginners im not saying its not hard but the other games are much better to be honest.the graphics are good the choice of cars is not bad and the levels and gameplay are good aswell.still the other racing games are much better so you'd better be off with something else.
