Good book so far in the first few chapters. It has a lot of pages so hopefully it will be a good read. Definitely recommended to retro game fans

The item does exactly what it says it does, quick postage and very good and easy to use seller. Was the best option for splitting my HDMI signal for my Xbox to another room!

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap cable and it shows, 24 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This cable is cheap and it really shows. It does work, it puts a picture onto the screen, the only problem is is that the image is fully over-blown bright and white.

I tested it on my N64 and my friends Game Cube. The image is completely unusable as most of the text and menus do not show and the rest of the game play is washed out and far too bright.

Before anybody thinks it is the TV settings then it is not- I tried my friend's official Game Cube video cable (which looks exactly the same but is the official one) and it works perfectly on both consoles instantly, as it should.

There are other reviews out there for this cable saying the same thing so I would splash out a couple of pounds more and buy a used official one which is what I have just done.

5.0 out of 5 stars I never write reviews, but this light deserves one, 8 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this light for a camping weekend and only got it because it was cheap. I did not expect much of it, but my god this is one good light!
I stood at the end of a football pitch in pitch black and it lit up people at the other end of the pitch easily.
It seems to be well made too, with a nice solid feel, rubber coating should help protect it and magnets/hook make it easy to attach to things.

I have only used it for that weekend 2months ago so I cannot comment on its lifespan, but I just turned it on now to check and it is still as bright as the first time I turned it on.

I definitely recommend this. Such a great product for such a cheap price!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-by, even as much so as Halo., 14 July 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What more needs to be said about this game? The reviews so far have been very good.
The graphics in the game are crisp and very good- especially on the models of the men. Sometimes the animation for the objects, that you are hidding behind, blowing up are not as good as they could be, but for most of it I havent seen any better graphics on an Xbox game, and thus this area gets 9/10.
The sound in the game is amazing! I have never really felt like i was actually truely part of a game and felt real tension before, but this sound track does so! The music adds so much to the game play, and makes it alot more realistic. There is no better sound in any other game ive played, and this adds so much to the experience- as it is more of an experience than a game- and thus gets 10/10.
There are two different aspects to the gameplay really; the training missions, and full thing. The training missions are really good. This game must have one of the most complex control systems in any game, and yet after completing the training it is all second nature. The training itself is basically a game in its own right, and, if you take your time and play it fully then, it takes the best part of an hour to complete.
The full game is great. It is so realistic and accurate, which makes you believe even more that you are out there fighting for your life!
Im playing it through on the easier of the two settings so far, and it does seem a little easy at times- hopefully the hardest setting is REALLY hard and challenging.
I give the gameplay a 10/10- if the hardest setting is really challenging, if not then the length of the game would come into question and i would give it an 8.5.
All in all this is a brilliant game- and considering i only came on this site to give a review, which ive never done before, then it shows its worth telling people about.
It is a must-buy for Xbox users- even as much so as Halo.
If you dont have an Xbox i would recomend you to; buy it, stand it in the middle of your room, kneel before it, and bow down to your new God, and hope Santa gets you an Xbox for Christmas to play it on!
