5.0 out of 5 stars Quiet and powerful!, 20 July 2017
This is a great pump, I'm using it to drive an airstone and it's virtually silent whilst providing lots of bubbles! I have it set near the lowest setting and the bubble flow is impressive. I initially plugged it in and was horrified by the loud noise, I didn't understand all the reviews praising its silence! Well, I judged it too soon. A word of advice - do not judge the noise level until you connect the airline and airstones.

Without the line connected, the noise is quite loud. But as soon as you connect the tubing and airstones it drops to virtually silent! Very impressive and I would definitely recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much nostalgia! Buy it!, 2 July 2017
Now this is how you do a remaster! This collection is absolutely incredible! As someone who grew up with Crash Bandicoot on the PS1, the smile this bought to my face during load-up was enormous! The sheer joy from replaying those childhood memories is amazing, especially given how good this remaster is! Some of my main points are as follows:

- The graphics are stunning, the characters are excellently animated and the environments are gorgeous. The colours just pop, and it's nice to see how much attention to detail has been paid to the original level design. I haven't played the original in over a decade but I instantly remembered the levels when replaying them!

- The controls are superb, they are highly sensitive and make platforming a challenge, but they're also rewarding. Anyone who complains about the controls is clearly lacking an ability to handle their precision. They are quite unforgiving, but that's the point! A platforming game is supposed to have tricky platforming.

- Great replay value! The crystals and gems will take a few play-throughs, but there's now also time trials in all three games. This was originally only in Crash 3, so it's quite cool that they retrospectively added these to the first two games. Of course, there are also three platinum trophies to collect.

- The soundtrack has been masterfully remastered! As with the level design, I instantly recalled the catchy music, especially in levels like "Road to Nowhere" and "Native Fortress". It sounds very similar to the originals but a bit more upbeat and modernised. They truly did a great job on staying true to the originals, but with a new twist.

Seriously, you simply cannot ask for more when it comes to this collection! Finally, after years of ruining Crash Bandicoot, Activision has finally given us fans what we've wanted for so long, and they nailed! Everyone needs to buy this game!

If it sells well enough, hopefully we will see a remaster of Crash Team Racing, and who knows... maybe Spyro the Dragon! Buy this great collection and prepare for hours of fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Silky Smooth!, 7 Jun. 2017
As a huge fan of WipEout HD, and all other previous WipEout games, I've been looking forward to a PS4 entry for years! This doesn't disappoint! While it would've been nice to have a new original entry, this collection has incredible value for money. The track and ship selection is vast since it combines three previous games. The graphics, as always, are astounding with a silky smooth framerate. I can't recommend it enough!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, 10 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This game is as close to perfect as a game can be. It excels in every aspect, just buy it and enjoy the stellar experience. In an industry so saturated with milked franchises of poor quality, Naughty Dog stand head and shoulders above everyone else. They pour their heart and soul into their games to give us, the players, an amazing experience. Bravo Naughty Dog, you've done it yet again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Return of a classic, 23 April 2016
As a lifelong R&C fan who's played every game since the original, this entry certainly doesn't disappoint. It's a reimagining of the first game, and it's awesome.

The story is great with some new additions to the original, although the characterisation is a bit weaker. Ratchet definitely has less personality this time round, his sarcastic attitude is no longer present and he's a lot more happy. I do sort of miss his attitude from the old games.

That minor niggle aside, the gameplay and presentation are superb. The visuals are stunning though I do wish it was 60FPS. The game runs at a solid 30FPS and I have yet to see any slowdown with so much happening on screen.

There are a lot of extras and collectibles as expected, for £30 it's a steal!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful!, 1 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this guide on Sunday, so two days before it officially released, thanks Amazon! The guide itself is absolutely beautiful. Since it's a hardback it feels wonderful, and the quality and scope of the content is fantastic. It's a comprehensive guide on the main story, side missions, weapons, mother base etc etc. In addition to that there are sections that explain the history of the series, with details on key characters etc. There is a lot to this guide, and the quality of the print is marvellous. For a mere £20 it's an absolute steal. Considering the scope of this huge game, it's definitely money well spent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Brilliant!, 24 May 2014
This review is from: Rayman Legends (PS3) (Video Game)
This game is without a doubt 10/10! It's probably the best side scrolling platformed I've played in many many years. Everything about the game is beautifully crafted, the graphics, the gameplay, the level design, the mechanics, it's all superbly done!

This is what a Rayman game should be, and I respect Ubisoft for bringing the franchise back to its roots. Legends and Origins are both fantastic, but Legends is on top for me. The level design and variety is even more wonderful, and it also contains the original Origins levels redone with the new aesthetic. The amount of content you get is incredible, just go buy this game!

10/10

Best console ever, the OS is superb and the graphics will continue to improve. I could write an essay on why its good, but there are plenty of sites doing that. So I'll keep it simple and say 5 STARS!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 16 Nov. 2013
This game sees a return to form for Ratchet, with the series returning to its normal action packed gameplay. You take control of Ratchet in the normal fashion, blasting your way through enemies and exploring different worlds. The story and sense of humour is very witty, and the graphics are beautiful. The actual gameplay is almost the same as "A Crack in Time", which is a good thing.

I'm really glad Insomniac returned the series to its roots, since it works so well. The zero gravity gameplay is something new and it works very well. My only complaint is that I wish this was a full retail title since its somewhat short, but it's definitely worth the money for a Ratchet fan or somebody new to the series.
