  1.  Thank you once agin play!

    Posted: 

    While there maybe many novelty memory sticks out there, at the end of the day they do the same thing. Store data. Play has being offering great goods at fantastic prices for years now, however there own range of goods is simply fantastic value. For what it is a fiver is brilliant value. Thank you play, and i implore you to offer a larger range of your own products!

  2.  Dissapointed

    Posted: 

    Just got the game, played for a few hours and i must admit im very disappointed. I envisioned a game in which you were free to roam the California searching for clues in an attempt to solve a big case. In fact the game is the opposite. All the clues are spoon fed to you. There is actually very little to work at for yourself. Yes il admit some of the gun fights and 'brawling' is rather enjoyable, but the freeroam is very limited in what you can do and where you can go. Overall i am very disappointed after all they hype; the lack of an enjoyable freeroam combined with the all too easy missions results in unfortunately very boring game play.

  3.  Series is back on its feet

    Posted: 

    The terminator franchise has got back on its feet with this one. A good installment to series. After the appalling third terminator i was not expecting much but this film delivered a entertaining watch. The fact it strayed away from the previous films setting in the present and decided to go in the future in my opinion was a risky move but they pulled it off. The special affects were very good and combined with the good story made it a decent film. Although it did not compete with one and 2 it was still a good film. The acting was fairly good Bale surprisingly did not give his usual excellent acting, it wasn't bad but i expected better from him. However Worthington gave an excellent performance which i thoroughly enjoyed. A good film worth a watch.

  4.  One of the best gadget

    Posted: 

    Hi, this is one of the best gadget around, but that is my opinion i will let u make up ur own mind with these points i have put together.

    GOOD
    €The dsi ware shop-Buy games with points from a card or bought with a visa card on the dsi using the internet. At the moment (when i wrote this review) there are only about 8 game in the Uk store, but in the future many more games are expected which utilizes the cameras.

    Bigger screens-The screens are slightly bigger than those on the ds lite but slightly smaller than those on the original ds.

    The cameras-Not only are they going to be amazing in new games expected to come out soon, but there are lots of affects u can play with built in to distort faces ect, the cameras that high quality but for games and fun tweaking they are fine.

    Better Processor- sorry i cant be more helpful but i am aware the the processor is better shortening loading times ect.

    Music-You can record your self and play with it in the music section or just play around with music you already have. You can play music but it does not play mp3 file music :(,

    Better interface-The start up menu now contains lots of empty slots which u put games and apps in u get from the dsi ware store, much like on the wii. The interface overall looks nicer as well. You can move which apps u like better to the front e.g if you really liked the camera app u could put at the front so when u turn the console on it is on that app.

    The memory card slot-You can now take photos and music with on a sd card as the gba slot has been replaced with a sd slot.

    Internet browser-The browser does not come with the dsi but u can get it 4 free from the dsi ware store. It work fairly well with nice ds unique features it would be to complicated to try and explain so if u r interested look it up.

    BAD€No gba slot-Yep for those of you who like their game-boy games there is no longer a gba slot. This also means that ds games that use the gba slot such as guitar hero are not compatible.

    R4 not compatible-for those of u who used to use an R4 to get their games u will not be able to use them anymore.

    Battery life shorter-The battery life is better on the ds lite than on this.

    Much more expensive-At the moment the console is £50 more than the ds lite u r paying a lot of money. I see it as investment, at the movement £50 for a camera and a set of 8 games seems a lot, but in less than a year the shop will be full of games using the camera and music facilities. But if u r new on the gaming and tech scene i wud buy a ds lite as it would be cheaper and better, as all the main games r the same 4 all three ds's.

    New accessories- Some people might look on the longer console and the bigger stylus as a good thing but it is highly probable that this has been done to make you buy dsi cases and dsi stylus instead of just normal ds accessories.

    NEUTRAL€
    New look and no logo-The finish is now a rough plastic instead of the sleek look. In my opinion the smooth finnish is nicer but that is me. one good advantage of the rough finnish is that it prevent scratch and finger marks easier. There is no longer the ds logo on the front making it look slightly plane.

    Slightly longer-The console is a little bit longer than the ds lite.

    Button moves-The on button has been moved from the left side of the console to the top next to the touch screen. The volume button is now on the side instead of the bottom. The bumper buttons are also flatter, 4 those who use a playstation a good example would be saying the ds lite bumper buttons are like the r2 button and the dsi bumper buttons are like the R1 button.

    Thanks for reading i hope that this review has helped decide to make the right choice for u.

  6.  It is the best game ever!

    Posted: 

    I have had this game since game out, ever since i heard Nintendo were making a remake i was there. The game is incredibly take on the old version with stunning new sharp graphics which show mario in all his glory, and fun new mini games. Nintendo have said it themselves on their website this piece of magic sits top of the top 25 ds games ever followed by such games as Mario Kart, Pokemon and Nintendogs. This game is a must for any ds owner, if you have played the old one you will love this one. People of any age can enjoy this wonder game. The game is a simple platformer at most times, and it is so fantastic that a platformer can offer this much fum.

  7.  Fantastic!

    Posted: 

    Ignore reviews that say otherwise this film is an incredible blend of horror, thriller and action, the story-line is incredibly wrote so that you are hooked, it contains many twists and turns, and has some touching moments about appreciation of family. Overall this goes down as oe of my best films.

  8.  I was very surprised

    Posted: 

    I went to see this with a few friends as it was one of their birthdays, they said they wanted to go and see it, and as it was their birthday i did not want to say lets go and see something else. As a 15 year old male i looked at al the adverts and posters and all thought was a chick flick romance that would be terrible. However from about 10 mins into the film you were hooked on the amazing story-line, the romance in m opinion is not that important to the story there are plenty of good ideas from the book which were really good. The director has done avery good job of making the film appeal to more than a few 12 year old girls. So if you have looked at the plot and the posters and think, like i did that it was terrible don't, give it a go because its actually a very good film.

  9.  Kids game? HA!

    Posted: 

    I have a lot of friends who go on saying that this game is to babyish and simple. Dont juge a book by its cover this game takes a lot of skill. I will admitt that the story isnt great but once you start making your only level it is fantastic. It is aimed at all ages and the more experinced you are the better you will be at the game. Be warned to make a complete good level takes a lot of time and patience, and you will have to do a lot of trial and error, i personly think it is an amzing game and would recommend to all.

  10.  Awfull

    Posted: 

    Stong advice don't buy this its cheap and tackey. I would only buy this for children under 8 and thats if it was about £20. When you finished builing the saber it feel awfull in your hands, and for a few quid more you can buy a proper fx light saber, steer clear of this one
