Once you get past the rather unnecessary gore this is a good game esp. for hand eye coordination! Very enjoyable and excellent graphics.

3.0 out of 5 stars Readable, 11 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was part of 5GS during the time this account is set. It's a fairly accurate VERSION of events but draws from such a narrow, biased pool of information it is a little thin. We became accustomed to the TA complaining they were treated differently to the regular Army when in fact they were treated exactly the same. What upset them was it didn't end after 48hrs and there wasn't a disco on the Sat night like normal!

Overall, an amusing way to spend an hour but I fear Max Hastings may still be able to sleep easy.

Whilst the App may be free, the subscription is nearly double that for the iPad. What's worse, you can't use your iPad App log-in. Deleted.


The Tunnels of Cu Chi: A Remarkable Story of War
The Tunnels of Cu Chi: A Remarkable Story of War
by Tom Mangold
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential, spell-binding but harrowing reading., 8 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is a rarity amongst its genre in that it succesfully manages to avoid erring to the support of one side or the other. Meticulous research, an absence of partisan sentimentality and a fair representation of the lives lived by both sides mean you come away with a taste for how gut-wrenchingly terrifying this period must have been for all concerned. If you get the chance to visit Cu Chi you are bombarded with pro-VC accounts; similarly all too many US accounts overlook the tragedy lived out by the other side. This book simply tells you how it was for all those concerned using fine detail and emotive descriptions interlaced with personal recollections. What becomes quite clear from the evolving tunnel saga is the tenacity of all concerned and also the respect either side actually held for their adversaries.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fine for the money, 8 Dec. 2011
No complaints considering what it cost. Decent enough quality and the wake-up function is good. Doesn't stand up and the iPad isn't held particularly securely. It won't fall out bit it can shift within the case meaning the charger socket / camera are not aligned. Nothing major but I've chosen to buy a more expensive one that hopefully will tick the boxes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Flimsy, 3 Oct. 2010
There are much better alternatives out there. Because the silicone is not particularly elastic and only just overlaps onto the face of the iPod/touch/phone it is easily displaced, even when you are just holding it. Already in the bin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stop reading this and buy it!, 12 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
He who is tired of London is tired of life...something similar could be said for 'Gavin and Stacey'.

My pensionable parents grew up in Essex and have long-since moved to South Wales...they now start every phone call with 'what's occurring'. This is a show with something for everyone. Superficially, it is a fun 'romcom' soap opera but there is so much more to it. If you think of yourself as a people watcher, you'll love it. If you like to be made to feel uncomfortable (think Ali G), you'll love it. If you feel smug spotting the 'adult' humour in animations such as Shrek / Ratatouille...you get the idea.

Buy it, watch it, be a nicer person at work!

1.0 out of 5 stars Just my opinion..., 28 Dec. 2009
Whilst Rhod Gilbert, Michael McIntyre, Al Murray et al. just seem to have an approach that appeals to all, Russell Howard relies on American-style Frat House gutter humour. Personally, I find it uncomfortable to see a grown man going for the cheap laughs that remind me of the unsophisticated attempts at humour we all suffered at school. He has the ability, range and delivery of a 13 year old yet his material is aimed at adults. The only benefit of owning the DVD over seeing him live (as I once suffered) is that you don't get clumsily heckled by a performer out of his depth when you leave the room for a drink!

Awful; there's a reason you only see him on 'Dave'.
