  1.  Really Handy!

    Posted: 

    The remote isn't that useful, but since it connects to the iPod and effectively wirelessly streams your music, I've found it was unnecessary!
    The Car charger is a neat idea, since the transmitter uses up your iPod battery more quickly than headphones or a 3.5mm jack.
    The product itself means you can play your iPod through anything with a FM radio, so cars which are too old to have an iPod aux cable, CD players or even my grandma's 80s cassette boombox!
    Connection and music quality is best when still, away from things that can cause interference (phones, computers on WiFi, some metal objects), or generally put down still when music is selected. You must tune the radio to a frequency where there are no broadcast radio stations (so you hear just white noise) and then use the up and down buttons on the product to try and match to the channel. If you choose a frequency with a station already on, when you move the iPod, it will occasionally jump to that stations music for a second!

    On the whole, decent kit for a good price (nothing as special as the top range ones, but c'mon - it's less than a tenner) which means you can enjoy your music without having to upgrade your radios!

  2.  Good buy for what you get!

    As Spidersoft mention before me, there are advantages with these cards. I buy my points and XBL Gold membership this way which does save you a bit of money. Also, considering the hacking scandal with Sony, I like the peace of mind that they don't hold my card details!

  3.  A very thorough FPS, just what the Wii needed!

    Posted: 

    Fast paced and immersive, the graphics are impressive considering the limitations of the console compared to its competitors. It holds it's own compared to more 'hardcore' games such as Call of Duty on X360. It may not be 'realistic' which people may say is a good thing, but it plays well, has few irritating faults (the wii controller isn't bad if you tweak the settings, this is more than compensated when you realize you can use GC, Classic controllers instead.) The voice acting is identical to the film, the storyline is based on the original, however being updated with today's technology (and scrapping Pierce Brosnan!). Your smartphone adds an interesting touch, and the multiplayer is taken back to it's roots. A weel rounded game, and a definate buy if you own a Wii, but want something a little more meaty than your party games! (Even if it does go down a storm with a group of mates and 4-player splitscreen!)

  4.  Fast and Cheap!

    Posted: 

    Half a Terabyte should be enough for most users... It's a good price. Not the flashiest HDD out there, but it does the job and doesn't break the bank! No bad points. Decent to keep your music or multimedia on, or as a backup (worth doing if you haven't already! You don't want you lose everything if your computer internal Hard Disk fails!)

  5.  Great Price!

    This additional memory is a great price for what you're getting. It's easy to fit (as any RAM, you just click it into your socket and you're away). It provides a good bit of extra speed to my dad's computer (Making sure the Hard drive wasn't the part slowing it down!)
    Great Price, Play!

    ***n.b* Definately check your motherboard for the socket (DDR/DDR2/DDR3) And the speed it'll run at, or else it might not work! **

  6.  An excellent shooter. As good as Halo? Almost.

    Posted: 

    Killzone is quite probably the closest PS3 owners can get to Halo on our shiny black console. And it has a very good go at rivalling it.
    The storyline is good (although i'll admit, slightly uninventive at times) the graphics are nice: splashes of red on a contrasting background that looks slightly grey. The gameplay is the best aspect, gritty and hardcore, you have a choice of weapons that feel meaty and well balanced.
    Its either this or Resistance. But atleat PS3 has TWO alternatives to Halo. Which proves how much fight PS3 still has in the games market. Although we miss out on titles such as Gears of War, we're still benifiting from some of Sonys top notch titles like this.

  7.  Like Lara Croft. With more men. And less Zombies.

    Posted: 

    As a more 360 oriented gamer (i'm starting to become a more unbiased gamer - showing the PS3 more love), even i have to congratulate Sony on getting this exclusive. This game is immensly playable, the graphics are superb, as well as the storyline. Trying to find out more about a slightly seretive character in history is interesting and unusual, but not overly impossible.
    The weapons are neat and i love how you have to work out the puzzles of 'how to get to that ledge' and stuff.
    If you want a decent action adventure game, minus the Lara, plus a great story, buy this!

  8.  Great driving game, even if it is missing the 'Burnout' feel

    Posted: 

    Paradise city is yours to explore, miles of ingame asphault waiting. It plays like most of the other Burnout games, most of which i have owned, all of which i have loved. Cars are perfectly nippy and the idea of trying to kill other drivers in a racing game will NEVER get old. Burnout have done something that is different for a normal racer, and the well balanced cars and numerous game-modes are incredible (such as 'marked man' - drive across the city without getting smashed up by some threatening black saloons).
    I like the little details in this game, such as Bilboard smashing, taking a mug shot of youre opponents angry face online when they get taken down, the classes of car (stunt/ race/ heavy) and the Burnout 'Do stupid things such as drive on the wrong side of the road or smash up enemy cars to earn boost' thing still works. The idea of smashing an enemies car after a race to send it to the junkyard, where you can get in it and repair it for your own selfish ways is a nice little touch. The Online does work well and the acheivements are generously placed.
    One slight tear in my eye is the fact that 'signiture moves' and 'After-touch' have been missing after Burnout3. And how i miss them. But not for long. The other little factors of this game will make you forget about it, and i still have B3 for my PS2.

  9.  Another great Burnout game, whats with the ultimate though?

    You may want to skip the 'ultimate' though, saving you the £7. Most of the DLC is free anyways.

  10.  Enthralling...

    ...like the rest of the series. Well priced by Play, this book grips you with the storyline throughout, giving you an insight into the masterchiefs backgroud - what you didnt see in the game. The combat scenes are really well written and this book is perfect for anyone who likes the Halo series or even want to read a really good Sci-Fi novel.
