  1.  DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!!!

    Posted: 

    Unfortunately this game is actually very good. Extremely realistic in places with fantastic enemy AI and beautiful looking landscapes. The weapons and vehicles feel, sound and look awesome. There are times you really do feel like you're in Africa.

    All of this is so disappointing due to a massive glitch in the game called the "73% glitch" or the "closed door glitch". This is a point in the game you come to where you have one main story to complete to further advance the game but the door to the room you need to get into to take the mission is mysteriously closed and cannot be opened thus making the game IMPOSSIBLE TO COMPLETE!

    Highly disappointing as I was really enjoying this game and had put in over 40 hour of game play. It supposedly happens in 60% of copies sold regardless of format, ps3, 360 and pc all affected and as of today there is still no patch to fix it. Google "far cry 2 closed door glitch" for your self.

  4.  not too bad actually

    lets face it books like these are not gonna win awards or end up on any best sellers list. the author knows it, the publisher knows it and we know it when we pick it up but thats not to say its not worth a read.

    if your like me and your a bit of a nerd then you will probably enjoy this. the story is simple enough (although the lore behind is incredibly complex) a planet is infested by lots a nasty bug like creatures (some of whom have psychic powers) and a band of space marines are sent in to clean it up along with an inquisitor (a chick with psychic powers... sort of) who has a secret mission of her own. nothing too original except for the added story line of the mantis warriors who actually do make it very worth reading. (i wont explain cause its worth finding out yourself).

    where the writer excels most are the battle scenes which are all very well detailed but unfortunately his pacing is bloody awful. there are times in the heat of a battle scene the chapter will end and have the next one start somewhere totally different. this can get fairly annoying.

    one very important thing. if you know nothing about the warhammer universe then do not start here. the author assumes you already know it and makes no attempt to explain it. a perfect example for me was that i did not know who the hell the eldar were until a friend explained it to me, the book never did. if you are just starting out with warhammer try the Horus Heresy instead.

    as far as this book goes, its short, its fun, well described and i would recommend if you have a gap to fill and its going cheap.

  5.  above the rest.

    Normally I can understand why other people don't like certain movies I love, whether they be too violent or too gory or whatever, there is usually just a difference of opinion. Except for Beowulf.
    From start to finish I was on the edge of my seat. Incredibly fight scenes, outstanding voice acting (particularly from Ray Winstone and Anthony Hopkins.) a fantastic story with great pacing which while a little farfetched had to offer something outrageous to be considered a true fantasy film in the same way 300 did. (It goes a little daft with a certain shoulder scene at the end, you'll know it when you see it.)
    One thing I love about this movie is that the makers did not cut the violence or gore for the sake of rating. This is an 18's movie and never does it try to be anything else unlike King Arthur or the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
    In general I have found that anyone who enjoyed 300 will enjoy this. Personally I loved both and cant wait for this to come out.
    and i bet you wont be able to stop yourself shouting "I AM BEOWULF" just as much as you shouted "THIS IS SPARTA"

  6.  get it on dvd instead

    first id like to make it clear i loved this movie. one of the best action movies iv ever seen, but as a blu ray its a real let down. there are a lot of points on the movie that grainyness is a real problem and the sound is no improvement over the dvd release. all in all id say get the dvd its cheaper and you get the same thing. great movie though and thats the only reason its getting 2 stars.

  7.  you wont be able to put it down

    I'm not what you would call a big reader but i knocked this out in less then a week which is the quickest I've ever read any book. think from dusk till dawn mixed with bubba ho-tep. daft but entertaining story with fantastic text all the way through, splashed with generous dollops of humor. i cant wait for the author's next book and truthfully it's the first book I've ever looked forward to this much!!! ROLL ON SANCHEZ!
