Rugby World Cup 2011
6 New from
Like most people I was really looking forward to this game since there hasn't been a rugby game since Rugby 2008.
However, having owned it for 2 days now I am now dissapointed. Having paid 35quid , I would suggest not purchasing it for anymore than 20quid
Quick breakdown gameplayEasy controlsCan play as most RWC teamsOnline is better than the game itself
Cons (I'm sad to say there are a few)
Graphics do not push the boundries of Xbox at all, the player likeness is laughable.
Inaccurate information in the commentary, e.g. The game states Murrayfield is in Glasgow on the West coast of Scotland. It is of course in Scotland's capital Edinburgh on the East coast. Pretty basic rugby trivia!It's possibly a reflection of 505 Studios rushed QA process, or worse still poor research.
Too similar to Rugby 2008 which at best was poor.
Little replay value, having won the world cup in a day I now find myself wondering why bother to winning it again.
Playing online does not update the playing squads to the finalised 30 men squads announced 2 weeks back
Online play is not really innovative, for example there could have been a global leaderboard to ran nations according to who has won the most. Similar to what they did for FIFA WC.
The advantage law is applied inconstantly.
Camera angles is a mile out from gameplay
To sum up, RWC11 is limited and plays like it was rushed through development as quick as possible and it plays like it.
Like most people, I will trade it in for Lomu Challenge rugby (out on the 9th Sept)
Angels & Airwaves - CD

I would sincerly recommend this album to everyone. It builds upon Angel and AIrwaves first album with catch tunes 'Everythings Magic' My personal fav song on the album is 'Heaven' a really atmospheric song that I can listen to all day.It a great album well worth the money.
Note: Angels and Airwaves 3rd album 'LOVE' was self released via their website and is 100% free to download. It is well worth a listen. It's again differnt from AVA's first two albums, Letters to God || is a stunning track.
Download 'LOVE' from their offical website, google Angels and Airwaves and you will see it on their website. (I can't include link in my review)
The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me
Brand New - CD
22 New from
I first came across Brand New 4 Years ago having heard arguably their most well known song "The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows" . TDAGARBM take Brand New in a new direction lyircally and musically from the haunting song "Jesus Christ" to the more intense "Limousine" which builds to an impressive climax. Music fans would be ill advised to try and class this album with an unhelpful genre tag. Brand New are unique,original and well worth a listen. This album is a must!!!!
Say Hello To Sunshine
Finch - CD
To say this album is good is a joke. This album is one of the reasons Finch broke up it had poor reviews and poor sales. I loved "What it is to Burn" and "Worms of the Earth" but this album was boring, uneventful and is not worth buying in my opinion. Finch tried something new it didnt work and split up.
My French Coach: Improve Your French - Intermediate

Having purchased this game it quickly became clear that you need to already have an understanding of French grammer rules in order to appreciate the game.Having said that it is helpful in brushing up your French. The graphics are solid and the music is a tab annoying (not that it adds to the game in anyway) other than that I would recommend this game. :) 3/5
