5.0 out of 5 stars Best wii music game so far, 5 Jan. 2010
Do you need to have the controllers to play the game? Next you'll be telling me you need a wii fit controller to play that game as well! Assuming you understand how games machines work and have the kit - this game is AWESOME. Fun for all the family it may be but stuff the kids, its definitely fun for all the adults! One of us got this for Christmas and it has been on every day since as four of us build our band up - unlocking new tracks, styling the lego men, buying new kit, recording our album.

There is a good range of songs from different eras and in different rock styles country, metal, pop, punk, psychedelic, funk - it's all there so everyone can find a song the love (and probably one they hate!). The different levels of difficulty mean you can keep progressing and our drummer loves that unlike other games you can turn off the confusing foot peddle in this one! Also, if you free play you have access to all the songs straight away, so if you just want to muck about cos friends have come round, you don't need to have completed the story first. And the story is a real giggle - I mean we exorcised a haunted house with the power of rock - it doesn't get much better!

Highly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Warning - author in training, 14 July 2008
This review is from: Gridlock (Paperback)
Having read a handful of Ben Elton's other offerings, I looked forward to another extrapolation of human behaviour full of believable characters and peppered with humour. Boy was I disappointed.

In Gridlock, Mr Elton is very clearly still learning his craft and has yet to distinguish the less than subtle differences between scripting his stand up show and writing a novel. There is the germ of a good idea, but it is ruined by his constant sidetracking in to either a moralist lecture or a semi-humorist aside in the `ranty' style for which his 80's stage act was well known. His characters are stereo types with perhaps one notable expectation, unfortunately rather than allow this single well rounded character to teach us the lessons the author has acutely observed the public could do with learning, he cannot resist lecturing us on the prejudice of society and by implication our own short sightedness and therefore I suspect alienates those he thought he would reach. The overuse of shock tactics, in the language, the descriptions of the action, the storyline and in the statistics quoted during the lecture sections assume a total lack of intelligence and in the end numb the reader to the point of ceasing to care about the book and the cause.

Ben Elton is a surprisingly good author, but from this offering, you would not guess it. Unless you are a particularly blinkered, sub intelligent, car hoarder - you will likely find this book irritatingly patronising. Put it down and read Inconceivable or Dead Famous instead.
