     Actually very good!!

    Posted: 

    I have never heard of this before and accidently came across the trailer and thought it looked quite good. I was a little sceptical because the whole film is set in one room and this usually is a bad thing but I was actually very surprised how good it was. It is about 8 strangers who go for a job interview yet they dont know what the job entails so they have to figure out how to qualify. This may sound lame but i promise you it's very engrossing as it gets you thinking from start to finish with a great twist at the end. Blu ray would be no benefit to enjoying this film as it is very story driven. Check out the trailer and if you like the look of it then im sure you will enjoy it!

    I noticed one reviewer didnt like it because it 'wasnt like saw' ... well thats because its not anything like saw!! Though...The artwork on the cover gives a false impression of what the film is about and I think the 15 rating is a bit OTT as it is violent or blood thirsty in any way.

    Hey Everyone,

    Thought I would write a few quick words about Eye Pet. Ive had my eye on this game for a good few months now and it always looked good so I thought I would risk buying it even though I was worried it might be shallow and nothing like the trailers. Well, let me put that myth to bed!! From the first ten minutes of playing you can see this is a well produced title as the presentation is fantastic. From the moment I switched it on we were playing for about 3-4 hours solid and loving every minute. You start the game with an egg and you have to perform a number of tasks to hatch your creature and boy when it hatches isnt it the cutest thing you've ever seen!! The animation is absolutely superb and they convey the sense of realism very well. The way you interact with the camera has been executed perfectly and im playing it in low light no real problems. The pet card works really well as this acts as all your toolbox objects and tracks the camera flawlessly. Simply Brilliant!! The only thing that they do need to improve on is when you teach the pet to draw; we had real problems getting him to see our drawings even though we used thick black marker.
    Don't be fooled into thinking you will get bored of playing with your pet. There are heaps of challenges and trophies to win which will keep you entertained for hours. Whether you are 7 or 77 im sure you will find this a hard to put down experience (im 29!). I would highly recommend this to people with young children as it will teach them how to look after their own animals and bond with them. And what's more, no poo to clean up or messes!! Buy this now you won't be disappointed - especially for the price you can buy it for here. An absolute steal-a great xmas gift. Also a great way to get the playstation eye which would cost the same on it's own!! Enjoy!!

  5.  More than just chess on steroids!

    This game is AWESOME. It has just the exclusivity that PS3 owners need to differentiate themselves from those other consoles.

    I spent a lot of time researching this slowly emerging game and it took me a lot of digging to find the facts,- but it wasnt long before I was compulsed to drive 50 miles & grab a copy.

    The aim of the game is to set up the 9 grid board and capture any 5 squares by summoning creatures and spells using your hand of cards which you place on the squares... Your opponent also has the same aim so you have to be very strategical with which units you place and when. Each unit can attack and defend from different directions so you play off your oppenent by exploiting these. Not only this - but each square represents terrain and your placed units get bonuses or penalties based on where you place them as well as each card having it's own abilities. This all adds up to make some mind twistingly great strategy although there is a dash of luck as well. Once you know how to play, you will be thinking very long and hard about your next move and it's great seeing strategies pay off.

    What lets it down slightly is:

    -The play matt is a lowsy piece of cloth which rucks up when you place the cards (improved by ironing first)unless you are very careful.
    -The tutorial is the most droning load of drivvle and confused me more than anything so I just learnt how to play myself.
    -The heavy metal soundtrack becomes a touch repetitive.
    -US version is half the price but i would still say £60 is well worth it.
    -Manual only provides the basics so you'll probably find yourself on forums looking to find answers for some of the advanced elements of the game.

    Now for the good points:
    -There is a massive amount to learn once you get to grips with this game which is what makes it so riveting. Ive had it for a week now and im still learning different things about it which make you use a different strategy.
    -The way the camera reads the cards and puts a 3d character on the screen is fantastic and so so innovative.
    -You get a starter deck of 30 cards but you can buy random booster packs to get you more units/spells (110 available). Some theme packs are available which give the same as booster packs but are biased towards certain ranges of units. BEWARE!- This can get expensive if you become obsessive about collecting them all!
    -Free online multiplayer (with ranked option) so you and your friends can all discuss your next move.
    -You can play a friend or the computer which makes a nice change from vegging in front of the sofa.
    -Millions of strategies to use which make this a game for life.

    Ive never played card games before but Ive got to say this is a fantastic innovation and will hopefully lead to all sorts of expansions. If you are a ps3 owner at a loose end who loves turn based strategy then this is definately for you. I couldnt recommend it more.

  6.  Jack wouldn't save this...

    I am a massive fan of 24 so when i saw this board game for sale me and my friend bought it for each other at christmas. Ive got to say it was the worst present ive ever received second to a tie organiser. On first inserting the disc I was impressed at how good the presentation was as it had the perfect 24 feel to it...But then you start to play it. The game itself is a joke as you spend hours playing mini games on your remote which are nothing short of aweful. You dont even know what you are doing half the time. All this time you dont even use the board until the last phase where you have to re-play thescenes you've just done to move round the board before the other player. In terms of replayability there is none as you only get 2 stories to choose from. Just plain and utter rubbish and what's more I was unlucky enough to pay £20 for it :-( .This had so much potential but it failed badly. Steer clear.
