5.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgic fun, 16 Dec. 2010
This review is from: GoldenEye 007 (Wii) (Video Game)
To be honest I'm not a big fan of the controls, I'm using the wiimote and nunchuk and would probably recommend the controller that comes with the collectors edition of this game.

having said that this was great fun, different enough to feel updated and not just a rehash but it's still Goldeneye. While it will never surpass the original obviously I'm glad I got it. I found the multiplayer to be lacking however as people cannot just jump in for a game when they come around as the controls take a bit of getting used to.


Effective Java: Second Edition

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read, 16 Dec. 2010
Great as a reference/refresher book as well as a helpful intro to Java.

I'm using it more as a refresher on java and it's very good, laid out well and easy to read. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Christmas gift, 16 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great little box set and perfect as a gift.

It's quite a good collection but be warned if you are buying a lot of these club dvd's, they tend to overlap, eg a few dvds cover the same topics and by the time you are watching the last dvd/box set then you may have seen some of the content a few times already, Istanbul comes to mind, it's on almost every dvd, which is fair enough as it makes for a great watch, but we don't need it to be on every single dvd.

Having said that, I would recommend this set.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good game, 16 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Sims 3 (Nintendo Wii) (Video Game)
When we picked this up I had already played The Sims 3 on pc when it first came out so this was more of a gift for someone else.

There isn't a whole lot more in it to be honest, the graphics as with more wii games, leave a little something to be desired but there are a few little wii specific features that I thought were quite nice, like using the nunchuk to move your character around.

Good game, but if you've already played it elsewhere, you won't get a whole lot out of it.

Got this as a gift for someone and they were delighted, seems well built and did what it said it would. What more can you ask for?


Nintendo Wii Console (Black) with Wii Sports + Wii Sports Resort and Motion Plus Controller (Wii)
Nintendo Wii Console (Black) with Wii Sports + Wii Sports Resort and Motion Plus Controller (Wii)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to the house, 16 Dec. 2010
I'm a "pc gamer" and as such I buy all the big game release on pc, as such I couldn't justify buying a 360 or ps3. The wii however is a great addition for when people are over or when we just want to play something more relaxing. The wii has an image of only having kids game but that is not true, there are plenty of games on it to suit everyone.

Also the black colour looks much nicer than the white in my opinion

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid controller, 16 Dec. 2010
As with all the official controllers this is built well and works perfect.

The only downside I can mention, and it's my own fault, is for not buying a wiimote that has the motion plus built in, this has the extra attachment which makes it longer and heavier although not by much. I would recommend getting the motion plus built in but this is still a great controller

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun, 16 Dec. 2010
I was pleasently surprised with this game, I had heard good things and read many glowing reviews but there was a certain old school feel to it that I had thought it would lose in this new format. Recommended. Looking forward to trying out the second one now.
