Main gripe about this game is having to sign on to the rockstar club each time to play it, that is after Rockstar told me to switch of my firewall and virus checker. Being on a net work no way I would do this. Three installs at 3/4 hour each, tedious. The only method that worked it to remove Network cable so went into offline mode. This should be an option at start up. The game play is OK if you like long cut scenes, kill a few baddies more long cut scenes. The game never really flows, shame. Almost a big a let down as Duke Nukem Forever.

What do you expect for ten quid. Well I didn't expect a great game that kept me coming back. The game play was so nice, easy to control, it had to be the enemy would hide and run round objects to get to you. The graphics are good until you hit the Pharaoh level and it is stunning. A good combination of shooter with the puzzle per level to find your way out. Some levels are huge but enjoyable. It even hooked a friend who plays RPG, For me a bargain a tenner. Get it.
Pioneer DVR-216DBK 20x Internal Black Bare SATA DVD+/-RW Drive / Black
Bought this as a backup for my optriac. At £15.99 why not? I inserted a cd, nothing. I thought dam thing doesn't work. To my surprise the menu from the cd came up. This must be the quietist drive I have ever seen. Make other drive sound like a helicopter. So good I ordered another one. Great drive.
SPEEDLINK D-struct Wireless PC Gamepad (Black)
Being over 50 I found this gamepad excellant, apart from that it is rechargeable but no lead included for charging. It takes a USB to Mini USB lead. It plays well and needs no drivers for XP. Great value. Even better if lead was included.

The graphics are superb. Gameplay a little slow but what really annoys is when you use the quick save nothing tells you it is saving. If you then quick load not only does it take a long time but the load screen reappears with the intro. After once or twice it becomes annoying. What this does is slow you down just when you start to get into it. Shame this could have been a seriouly good game. Bored before finished first chapter because of long load times.
