5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, 7 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great product and does exactly what is says on the tin. Comes with a Gamecube sized drivers installation CD and have set it up to play games with no problems. I mainly use this to play SNES games on the PC and it works a treat.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great rally game, 13 April 2014
I missed the first 3 games in the series as i tend to steer (pun intended) away from simulation controls as opposed to arcade. Being a huge rally fan, i found myself wanting another rally game to play aside from DiRT 2 and 3. When i saw WRC 4 at a good price, i bought it.

Graphics: Being the 4th game in the series and one of the last games to come out for its generation, i feel it could have had a little more detail and polish. Though in saying that, the graphics are by no means bad.

Sound: Good title an replay music. The sound effects as a whole are fine. The engine sounds do let it down though as they sound like a lawn mower, not a 300bhp rally car.

Gameplay: WRC game controls are a little less arcade than that of DiRt games but it doesn't take long to get to grips with and is not as simulation like as the likes of Gran Turismo or Forza. There are all 13 locations of the official 2013 WRC. Each location being split into 6 stages. So plenty of tracks with a good variety of surfaces. With quick mode, rally mode, career mode and online multiplayer, there is enough to keep you going for awhile.

Overall: I really enjoyed this game. It's a good rally game. Even if you have the DiRT games, this is different enough to warrant owning as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rockstar - WTF were you thinking??, 19 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First thing's first, GTA 5 is a fantastic game. The missions are great fun and there is so much to do it hurts your head just thinking about it. From golf, to diving, exploring wide open areas, hunting animals to watching movies. I really like the character change system where you play as 2 or more characters during a mission.

However, there is major flaw, the driving mechanics. Cars handle like a bad need for speed game. Gone is the heavy feeling, hand braking and sliding round corners feel of GTA 4. What you get instead are jerky, badly responsive cars that seem to hover around. No realistic acceleration or deceleration. When you ram other vehicles you either bounce off or stick - and frequently do get stuck between vehicles in a pile up. You can't force your way out, even if in a lorry. It's ridiculous. As driving is the main part of this game, it basically ruins it. I've been playing 3 days solid now and am bored. Rampaging and exploring are what i like best about GTA games, but because the driving mechanics are so awful, it's just no fun. Also the damage is just stupid. A head on crash at full speed hardly dents the cars.

So over all, a great game but i won't be playing this in 4 weeks time, let alone 4 years time like GTA4. Very disappointed - how could Rockstar have messed up the most important aspect of the game? Is this why it was delayed 6 months?

5.0 out of 5 stars Your mouth will drop in awe, 24 July 2001
This review is from: Spit (Audio CD)
Kittie are the best new metal band there is. In some ways they are a female version of slipknot, the Music on the CD is awesome as morgan changes from a soft sweet voice to a loud scream and the musical side is just as amazing as the lyrics, this is a band that can realy sing and play it's instruments and knows how to make a must have CD, any fan of slipknot, coal chamber or any new metal MUST have this CD.
