4.0 out of 5 stars crimes and punishments, 6 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have always liked games where you use brains instead of brawn to solve things and i enjoyed the last Sherlock Holmes game, so naturally i was looking forward to this. admittedly I wasn't too sure when i heard that it was going to be 6 separate cases instead of one grand adventure, but i was hoping that maybe the cases would be connected in some way, not so I'm afraid. all 6 cases are unfortunately not connected in any way, and there is no startling revelation at the end, the end credits just start rolling. to make matters worse, all the cases seem to involve a murder and no other type of crime, when a little bit of variety would have been nice, a theft and a kidnapping perhaps? several of the cases were also very short and were over before you even get going. despite this, the cases themselves were good, with lots of stunning locations and lots to do and investigate, you even get to control Sherlock,s trusty dog a few times to sniff out clues. although the scenery and locations are stunning, I couldn't help but think that they were PS3 graphics and not PS4, hardly next gen worthy at all.

to sum up, if your an adventure game fan and a Sherlock fan then you should enjoy this, but don,t expect anything mind blowing, and don,t expect anything like the previous outing for Holmes and Watson, in that regard, its disappointing

3.0 out of 5 stars poor fit, 21 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shaver Adaptor (Personal Care)
although the adaptor works fine, the plug doesn,t fit it very well. after plugging in, the plug comes out slightly so that its not sitting in properly. the connection is apparantly still made because this doesn,t prevent it from working, but its still a worry, especially when your using it to charge something. their is always the worry that it will come out more and prevent the item from charging, so much so that i find myself constantly checking to make sure it hasn,t come out any further. a very poor design in my opinion, and even though some people would say that you shouldn,t complain when its cheap, how much should you expect to pay for a simple adaptor in the first place?

4.0 out of 5 stars wrong item sent, 21 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i ordered the Britto Plush Coco Kitty (Medium) and was sent the musical light up version instead. the person it was bought for (mother) was still pleased with it, but thats not the point. surely but slowly i intend to get all the Britto Plush Mediums and since this is much larger it will look out of place. the company should pay more attention in their warehouse when they are sorting deliveries. despite this, i cannot praise the Britto range enough, as their unique design and vibrant colours will please anyone who collects soft toys

4.0 out of 5 stars not as good as it was hyped to be, but still a fun game, 1 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Watch Dogs (PS4) (Video Game)
i have a love /hate relationship with this game, because there are parts i loved about it, and parts i hated. the parts i loved were the environmental hacking you could do to take enemies down, and the altercations with bad guys, especially since you eventually have access to a ton load of weaponry. the parts i hated however were the hacking mini games which i was not fond of, and the driving sections where you have to chase someone down. i,m not a fan of driving games, so these sections did nothing for me.

having said all that however, the storyline was interesting and the game was quite long, took me 5 days to complete, which is a good thing as i hate short games. considering all its good points, i think i can forgive the fact that hacking things didn,t play as much of a part as we were promised. all in all, a good if not brilliant game which seems to leave things open for a sequel, with Dedsec still on the loose, and the promise of CtoS 2.0 which will connect the entire world. whether or not this game is successful enough to warrant a sequel remains to be seen

bought this because my mother suffers from rheumatoid arthritis, and recently started to get pain in her ankles when putting pressure on them. when wearing this, she finds she can now walk pain free because it supports her ankles perfectly. would recommend these and the neo g range in general

3.0 out of 5 stars best of? hardly, 17 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
if this is the best from 52 weeks of raw and smackdown, I would hate to see the worst. don,t get me wrong, there are some good matches on here, and there are some head scratchers too, but there are only 15 matches total!!! 15!!! out of 52 weeks? an entire year? anyway, lets look at the dvd in depth shall we?

disc one
first raw of the year

raw - 7th January
tables, ladders and chairs match for the wwe championship
(c) cm punk vs ryback

smackdown- 11th January
last man standing match for the world heavyweight championship
(c)big show vs alberto del rio

setting the stage
smackdown 25th January
the rock and cm punks verbal battle

raw 28th January
paul heyman and mr McMahon confrontation

one for the ages
raw 25th February
winner faces the rock for the wwe championship at wrestlemania
john cena vs cm punk

raw 4th march
the rock and john cena - point/counterpoint

and that's it for the first disc, 3 matches total, good matches don,t get me wrong, but only 3.

disc two
wrestlemania season
raw 1st april
cm punk disrespects the memory of paul bearer

raw 8th april
handicap match
alberto del rio vs jack swagger and zeb colter

the above match was awful, zeb colter didn,t even get into the ring, so why make it a handicap match? this match was only included because dolph ziggler finally cashed in his money in the bank briefcase afterwards.

raw 8th april
kofi Kingston vs fandango
another pointless match, which ends in a dq, when chris Jericho runs in and attacks fandango. best of? hardly

smackdown 19th april
sheamus and randy orton vs mark henry and big show

setting the world on fire
raw 22nd april
undertaker, kane and Daniel bryan vs the shield

raw 6th may
brock lesnar destroys triple h's office
oh look, we get to see brock lesnar, unfortunately, this is the first and last time he appears on this dvd. he makes no other appearance, no more interactions with triple h during their fued, no interactions with cm punk during their fued, nothing!!!

smackdown 7th june
Curtis axel vs chris Jericho

foul play was afoot
raw 17th june
mark henry's retirement speech

raw 24th june
street fight
Daniel bryan vs randy orton

so to recap disc two, 2 good matches, 3 that were nothing special, a token brock lesnar appearance and 1 appearance by cm punk

disc three
a piñata and a mariachi band
smackdown 28th june
alberto del rio's championship fiesta

smackdown 12th july
aj lee and kaitlyn's contract signing

raw 15th july
the wyatt family makes a statement
by attacking r truth no less, and that's the last we see of the Wyatt's in this dvd

smackdown 26th july
damian sandow searches for his briefcase
this begins at the end of a match between damian and randy orton, why not show the entire match? after which we see numerous clips of sandow looking for his briefcase

smackdown 9th august
rob van dam vs randy orton

two fan favorites face to face
raw 12th august
miz tv with john cena and Daniel bryan

raw 9th September
santino marella vs Antonio cesaro
apparently, santino returning from injury is considered the best of raw

smackdown 13th September
big show faces off with the shield

raw 7th October
Daniel bryan, cody Rhodes and goldust vs the shield

raw 14th October
no dq match for the world tag team championship
the shield vs cody Rhodes and goldust

smackdown 1st November
john cena, cody Rhodes and goldust vs damian sandow, Antonio cesaro and jack swagger
we don,t actually get to see the match where sandow cashes in his briefcase against cena, despite the fact it was reportedly a good match!!!

raw 11th November
3 on 2 handicap match
cm punk and Daniel bryan vs the shield

raw 9th December
the championship ascension ceremony
appropriate they finish with this, as this dvd comes out just before the last pay per view of 2013, TLC, which has the unification match

so, some good matches on here, but some real head scratchers too. brock lesnar makes 1 token appearance, as do the Wyatt's, and punks fued with lesnar and heyman isn,t even mentioned. there are probably many more omissions, so after reading this, maybe you will notice them?

best of raw and smackdown 2013? hardly, and I would hate to see the worst of raw and smackdown

4.0 out of 5 stars slow but interesting series populated with beautiful people, 11 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
although the series is very slow at times, and the fights seem to last all of 5 seconds before they are over, the story itself keeps you interested because you want to know what happens next. the flashbacks to the island are sometimes better than the present day stuff, and more often than not, seem to tie in to what is happening in the present. if I had one major complaint, it would be about the fact that the entire series seems to be entirely populated with BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE. everyone, and I really do mean everyone, from OLIVER all the way down to the smallest character, are either handsome or beautiful. if it wasn,t for the fact that this is primarily a superhero show, I could be forgiven for thinking this was aimed at the TWILIGHT crowd. despite this one major niggle, its an entertaining show which can only get better

5.0 out of 5 stars MORTAL, 15 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
after several novels centred on shriever air force base, with the occasional glimpses of life elsewhere, it finally looks like the action will move to the Eden compound. good job too, because I was starting to sympathise with Brooke and ravens need to escape their military confinement.

I enjoy these novels, as evidenced by the 5 stars, but there is one thing that annoys me. why this insistence on explaining every single military term or weapon? does the author think us non military types are stupid? and is it really necessary to describe the journey every bullet takes as it goes through someones body, including the damage it causes?

cliffhanger was a bit lame, but still looking forward to the next novel to see what happens next. the title alone WARPATH promises much action

5.0 out of 5 stars omega, 13 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
brilliant conclusion to a storyline that's been going now since the first chess team novel. all the different elements from previous novels come together, with some startling revelations, especially for king. the saga of Richard ridley and also of alexander are concluded, and its a happy ending for the latter. be interesting to see where the chess team go from here, and how the author tops this story arc.

SPOILER
I have a question regarding the ending. when alexander steps through the portal and it explodes, would that not create some kind of paradox when his younger self finds his lab destroyed?

3.0 out of 5 stars summerslump is more like it, 30 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: WWE - Summerslam 2007 [DVD] (DVD)
this has to be one of the worst summerslams in history, and for 1 of the big 4, that's appalling.

kane vs finlay: kane was wrestling injured in this one, as his ribs were taped up due to an earlier attack by finlay who hit him with his sheelagilh, despite this fact, this was a pretty decent match, as you would expect from 2 brawlers. naturally, hornswoggle got involved, although it was thankfully short lived. shame we didn,t get to see kane chokeslam him, as I find the little troll very annoying.

divas battle royal: too many divas to list, but the winner of this would get a shot at Candace michelles womens title. not very exciting, but beth phoenix picked up the win, and nothing happened afterwards.

umaga vs mr kennedy vs carlito: umagas intercontinental title was on the line in this one, but there was no one to cheer for, since all 3 were heels. carlito and kennedy teamed up at 1 point to double team umaga, but it backfired when umaga over powered them.

john Morrison vs cm punk: morrisons ecw title was on the line, and punk had been chasing it for a while. at a big event like summerslam, we should have crowned a new champion, but it wasn,t to be, and to make matters worse, the winner won by using the ropes.

great khali vs batista: khalis world heavyweight title was on the line. unlike later years, when khali became slow and sloppy in the ring, he actually wrestled a half decent match here, and really looked like a monster. unfortunately, the dq ending was a poor finish.

triple h vs booker t: its not hard to see why people complain about triple h and his ego, because his entrance to the ring, complete with video inspired by the six million dollor man, was eye rollingly bad. ok, I know he was returning after 9 months and quad surgery, but seriously? the match was nothing special, and booker never seemed like a threat.

john cena vs randy orton: this was for cenas wwe title, and it saved the pay per view, just. despite the fact that orton was a heel, the crowd were split over who to cheer for. great back and forth match with cena winning after his patented AA.

so, a good event to pass a few hours, but as a big event, hardly a great one. the main event was good, but the others were hardly worthy of an event dubbed the biggest party of the summer
