4.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect, 26 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'll try to keep this review brief:

Collector's edition bonus content:
- The statue is amazing a great height, amazing detail and also it is brilliantly coloured.
- The assassin's dossier is probably the worst part of the set but still a nice addition.
- The art book is great for the casual fan and if you are a fan of behind the scene information and the work of Jim Lee and Geoff Johns.
- The steel case for the game looks good and makes the product classy.

Game content:
This is why the game only got 4 stars
- The map is very similar to Arkham City which is useful for finding this but makes the game feel a bit repetitive.
- I have noticed a few issues with freezing and frame rate which makes the game less enjoyable.
- The fact Gotham is empty although explained within the plot, means that unlike Arkham City there are no civilians in the streets which is a shame as that would have been an interesting dynamic.
- The game play is similar to the previous Arkham games so if you liked them you will most probably like Arkham Origins.

1.0 out of 5 stars I don't get it..., 23 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In Between the Sheets (Paperback)
Having read some of McEwan's work before I really thought this book would be interesting as it covered a topic I study at University (The Sexual Revolution in Britain) and thought that this book might explore a 20th century take on this topic. I was wrong. The stories rarely had what I would consider an ending and when they did they were often unsatisfying. The opening story was the best.

This might be a good book and maybe the plots have just gone over my head, but I'm not sure that is the case, in general the stories seemed nonsensical and a bit pointless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality, 23 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This helmet is top quality. The Number of ventilation slits means that I've sweated less than in previous helmets I've owned. The helmet it self feels more comfortable and as well as that more secure than other helmets I've worn since playing cricket. Slightly, trivial the colouring of the helmet (black) means that it is often the only helmet of its colour in the changing room and less liable to be picked up by someone mistaking it for their helmet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for my university essay, 23 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book because in my second year of university I had to produce an essay on Nazisploitation films and their impact on popular culture. Academic literature on this topic is spars and this book really helped when looking for general films and less so on the Nazisploitation. I got a first on the essay and credit some of that to the quality of the literature available to me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bad Science, good book, 23 Sept. 2012
This review is from: Bad Science (Paperback)
This book was a really good read and lots of what Dr. Goldacre is thought provoking. Some of the things he said regarding the drugs trade in Africa was really shocking. Sometimes it was a bit of a drag, but overall it was a interesting book and worth a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars If it is as good as last year..., 20 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a 20 year old student who is a big Star Wars fan and also a big lego fan. I purchase the 2011 calender and it was a lot of fun, the models were easy to build and the mini figures were great. Last years highlights included the lego Christmas tree and Santa Yoda. This year the set includes a Santa Darth Maul and a Snowman R2-D2. The set arrived today and although it won't be opened until December the 1st, for obvious reasons, Lego is a trusted brand and if the set is the same quality is last years the countdown to Christmas will be very merry.

A must for Lego Star Wars fans, children and big children alike. £1 a day is worth it for the models. Order early stocks disappear fast.
I've included a link to last years set so you can see the reviews for it to make up your own mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning, 13 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Should probably start this review by saying that I love Scroobius Pip so my review of his work is liable to be very biased. But, personally I feel that the art work within the book is phenomenal and the poetry is very deep and moving. It is worth noting that a lot of the poems are song lyrics, which although giving the songs a new interpretation in my opinion, may leave some purchasers disappointed if they expected entirely new material.

Overall, I would say that this book is well worth reading, it is funny in the right places and in other places can really make you think and some of the poems hit home in the heart. To quote the man himself '[his]... lyrical content is a miracle God send'

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not quite there, 11 Feb. 2012
This review is from: WWE '12 (PS3) (Video Game)
This games is very different to other WWE Games. It feels fresh and new. For some people the change might grate, for me it was an improvement and made the games and the AI seem fairer. Below are some points that I thought were pertinent, new or needed improving for future games.

-The Predator technology makes the game seem more realistic and hopefully in future editions it can be smoothed out.
- The Graphics are okay but I fine with a lot of WWE games some years they will improve the graphics and not the content as much with this edition it seems to be the other way round lots of content not so much graphically improvement.
- The RTWM stories are new and again seem to add a sense of realism however, sometimes the 'scenarios' needed to win a match or get to a cut scene, are not great.
- Universe mode has been made a lot more user friendly with the ability to defends titles as and when you want with whomever you want, which is a vast improvement from last time. However, when you unlock title belts for universe mode (and this might just be for me) it seems like you can't turn them of and I find this annoying, others might not.
