3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 24 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mafia III (Xbox One) (Video Game)
Overall, this game is disappointing to me. It has nothing on the first two.

I enjoyed the story but the actual gameplay is so repetitive it was difficult to get to the end. The game has you doing the exact same thing right from the first mission all the way through to the last, the only difference is the enemy.

Once you've finished the main story, there's nothing to do. You are just left in this open world with no objectives. The game as a lot of graphic issues too. Sometimes you'll be driving along and a car will just appear in front of you because it hasn't loaded until you're right behind it. The draw distance is also really bad.

Enemy AI is poor, I played on the hardest difficulty and they were still very easy to take out, and that's not bragging, they're just really bad. I can creep up on two people talking, take one out, and the other doesn't even notice!

I've given it 3 stars because of the story, the only thing that saves the game. Oh and the music too, I thought I was about to play the greatest game ever when Jimmi Hendrix All Along the Watchtower played at the title screen.

5.0 out of 5 stars From the very moment you hear Ghostface' voice.., 1 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You know this album is going to be crazy from track one, the moment you hear "GHOSTFACE! Catch the blast of a hype verse" Track after track it's brilliant, Clan in Da Front has probably the greatest intro to a track ever. With each member complimenting each other's style so well, Method Man with his comical wordplay, Ghostface's abilities to tell stories, GZA dropping knowledge, it all just fits. It's brilliant. The production almost sounds unfinished, but that turns out to be a great thing, because it just fits so perfectly.

You have to listen, words on a screen can't do the album justice! Hip Hop classic!

Disappointed with this. Sounds more like a mixtape. There are still some good tracks, Twisted and Smoke are essentially party songs, where as Irregular Heartbeat is more like the 50 of old. I'm sure Street King Immortal, 50's next solo project, will be a lot better.

4.0 out of 5 stars RZA experiment pays off, 1 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Experimental, colourful album from RZA. Most attractive thing about the album for me is RZA's production skills, which are incredible. I've never rated him as a top tier MC but it doesn't mean he can't rhyme and keep the listener entertained.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well, could anyone do it better?, 1 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: No One Can Do Better (Audio CD)
D.O.C, hailing from Houston, flown out to Compton by Dr. Dre after hearing just one track. D.O.C. had a lot to do with the Straight Outta Compton album (And the projects that followed, such as Dr. Dre's The Chronic), although largely uncredited, he assisted with rhyme structures and lyrics. No One Can Do It Better proves he can put this talents to use with a mic in his hand. It's a shame he suffered damaged vocal cords in a car accident, because going from the strength of his first album, he would have created some masterpieces.

5.0 out of 5 stars My all time favourite piece of Hip Hop., 1 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Moment Of Truth (EMI) (Audio CD)
I have heard more than one thousand Hip Hop albums from four different decades, and this album is definitely my favourite. It's not necessarily the best, although I do believe the title track, Moment of Truth, is the best hip hop track ever, although that can be argued. Premier is the sound of east coast hip hop, and this is some of his finest work ever, in my opinion. Guru is the only monotone MC I can listen to without getting bored, because his words keep you interested despite the fact he sounds the same through the whole album, and if you've heard Gang Starr before, you know what his rhymes are about.

This review is from: Liquid Swords (Audio CD)
It's a close call between Liquid Sword and Only Built 4 Cuban Linx... for the best solo project to come from the Wu-Tang members. GZA is the brains in the Wu-Tang, he is eloquent in his rhymes and spits a lot of knowledge. All in all it's a colourful album. Cold World (With D'Angelo on the hook) and 4th Chamber are my favourite's, with Shadowboxin' coming in third. The album also has a lot of quotable speach from introductions and ad lbs (Don Rodriguez from the Bronx?) And of course, this Album has the Killah Priest track B.I.B.L.E (Basic Instructions before Leaving Earth) which is phenomenal, but doesn't feature GZA at all.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty awful, 23 Dec. 2014
Straight up garbage, seriously. Game hasn't been good for years now, the only reason I didn't give this one star is because The Purge is a great track. But that is the only one.

5.0 out of 5 stars 32 minutes of real Hip Hop, 10 Dec. 2014
This review is from: Mega Philosophy (Audio CD)
From start to finish, Mega spits thought provoking rhymes over some very smooth instrumentals. There isn't a bad track on the album. Only downside is the length, but not enough to knock a star off the rating.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's just not the same., 10 Dec. 2014
This review is from: A Better Tomorrow (Audio CD)
Now that I've gotten over the hype of new Wu-Tang material, I sadly have to say, this is not a good album. The track Miracle is embarrassing, it wouldn't sound out of place on the soundtrack to the Frozen movie. Ruckus in B Minor is a great opening track, when I heard that my hopes were up for the rest of the LP to be similar, but track two, Felt, just kills that energy. The lyricism isn't bad overall, but the way it's laid out is lazy, all members sound like they are forcing the words out of their mouths, except Method Man. Method Man for me has never laid a bad verse on a Wu-Tang track, and he doesn't on this album either, his flow is on point, but it's just not the same as a collective, it's all over the place.

2/5, Saved by tracks Ruckus in B Minor, Necklace, and Hold the Heater.
