  1.  Monster madness with groovy graphics

    Posted: 

    I gave this 5 stars for the graphics alone! Gorgeous colours, stunning spooky graphics and great controls that let you pan your enviroment at every angle, it feels just like on your Ps2! Anyway, you first pick your difficulty setting - which is Lively, Healthy, Sickly or Deathly! Then you get to pick to play between Pandora the little gothic gal or Death Jr, the little boy that is the son of death. Sounds nastier than it is, as this is def designed for kids! (All characters are drawn so cute!). Then you set off round the spooky forrest on the first level and hack your way through Giant trees, poisoness mushrooms, and the like. You have to collect the golden orbs along the way, for your health etc. You progress through all the levels until you can get to free the grim reaper, who is taken hostage at the beginning. This game has great controls and very fast reflexes so it's very easy to play. A really enjoyable game from the graphics right through to the gameplay. Definately worth it.

     x30 Great value mini games to keep your kids happy!

    Posted: 

    30 great games in 1 disk, and at this price, this is a buy that will save you some pounds! 6 games are available straight away. 1) Money spinner-spin the wheel 2 collect the cash! 2) Alien abduction - abduct people into your space ship before the FBI stops you. 3) Pool party - Batt the nerdy guys out of your pool party. 4) Pucky parrot - Try and slam as many pucks as you can into the goal. 5) Kill the zombies before they kill your girlfriend! 6) Dodgeball - Exactly as the names says. The rest of the games you get to unlock as you play each game. The graphics are really funny, game control is easy, anyone can play these and have a laugh. I think it was written for younger gamers, but an older gamer like myself can still have plenty of fun. Definatly worth the money compared to other psp games.

  3.  Give it a miss if you don't have much patience!

    Posted: 

    The aim of the games is too start at the Astro Lab and move your little metal blob around the level through various challenges. Then moving on once you complete each level. These varied from tipsey see saws, mazes and steep edge drops etc. I haven't much patience or dexterity, so i became very bored within no time. It just didn't have the game play to keep me occupied. I think if your an older gamer and in to this kind of challenge, i'm sure it would be a great game. But i don't think this would appeal to the younger player. My neices were bored stiff and like i said, when i had a go, i just couldn't do it, so i think you are either good at these kind of games or your not, i'm the latter. This game also had really old/retro graphics which i just didn't like, so that added to the fact that i didn't think this game was a good buy. Much better games out there to spend your money on in my opinion.

  4.  The master of languages does it again!

    Posted: 

    I know you may be thinking, here we go, not another language course promising that you can master a language without much bother, but hey with Michel Thomas you really do! I found out i had a long lost relative who was German and a Family reunion was set up. My husband wanted to impress him, so he brought this set. He didn't want to bother with a set that you had to study books, countless cassettes and the like. This is a straight forward procedure of remembering/repeating what you hear whilst the 2 people on the cd chat, with Michel coming in at various intervals. You think that you will not remember/take in much but you do! The whole course is very clearly spoken, well paced and the pauses are just long enough for you to pick your brain. My husband hadn't the time to put in that much effort as the family member was arriving at short notice/within weeks basically. Yet he picked up enough to chatter along nicely when he arrived and it really impressed him as he knew my husband had only used this course. These are definately the only language courses worth bothering with. We went on to buy French and Spanish too, having previously brought Italian, as we were so impressed!

  5.  A natural must after using the Foundation in Italian

    Posted: 

    Please check out my main review for the Foundation course as the same review also applies to this set. This set is a natural progression if like my husband you want to build up on the basics of Italian and take it a step further/go more In depth. The course is very clearly spoken, and well paced, just like the other courses he does. Michel Thomas is definately the only person that does language courses worth bothering with. We went on to buy the French, German and Spanish language builders too, as we were so impressed!

  6.  A must for anybody wanting to learn Italian

    Posted: 

    I know you may be thinking, here we go, not another language course promising that you can master a language without much bother, but hey with Michel Thomas you really do! I am of Italian origin but i was never taught italian as a child, and i am a bit lazy, so i didn't want to bother with a set that i had to study books, countless cassettes and the like. This is a straight forward procedure of remembering/repeating what you hear whilst the 2 people on the cd chat, with Michel coming in at various intervals. I thought i wouldn't remember/take in much but i did. I even fell asleep through some bits and i still managed to remember what had been said when i played the cds again a few days later. The whole course is very clearly spoken, well paced and the pauses are just long enough for you to pick your brain. Even though i was a bit lazy with the course, i still understood most of what was being said, when i went over to Southern Italy. Amazing! When i spoke, I got some of my verbs mixed up, yet i was still understood and i gave some of the locals a few laughs too in the process. My husband put in much more effort than me and he has become almost fluent and he hasn't an Italian bone in him! This is definately the only language course worth bothering with. We went on to buy French, German and Spanish too, as we were so impressed!

  7.  Brilliant film! But why couldn't we have had a nicer ending!

    Posted: 

    The Descent is about an all female caving expedition which certainly does not go to plan. Written/directed by Neil Marshall (Dog Soldiers), so you can expect a strong plot/good characters, which is what you get. The female lead (suffers a terrible car accident and wakes up in hospital to find her husband and child dead). Not wanting to sound weird but the filming of the car crash scene was amazing, had to rewind and watch it twice more as it happened so fast. Anyway, 1 year later, she meets up with friends to go caving. The claustrophobia type effect is captured brilliantly and really makes you feel uncomfortable. (Well it for did me, as i hate small spaces).
    It transpires that 1 of the girls who's job it was to pick the cave, has led the group down an uncharted caving system as a surprise. She thought they would all be happy to take on the challenge but as the women search for a route out, they quickly realise they are not alone. I actually didn't find what was down their scarey, but it was how the film was filmed, the lighting and the sheer unexpected was that what got me gripped. As the attacks gets more frequent the film maintains a breathtaking pace, right through to the gripping but disappointing finale. I say disappointing as i really didn't want it to end how it did, but hey that's life!

  8.  Pretty riveting, then wham the dodgey ending!!

    Posted: 

    My Hubby is going through a spell of reading Books by Stephen King, this one he is half way through and is really into it. So we get the dvd and boy, it was so compelling we sat all the way through without having to pause for the usual ie-drink/toilet etc. To sum up, It's about 4 boys who help out a handicapped boy from getting done over by 3 older boys. They continue as friends through childhood but lose touch with the handicapped boy. We see them all reunite at a log cabin, and yes you have guessed it, it all pretty much goes wrong from there. I don't want to give too much away but you will never guess what happens, because Stephen King always manages to let that amazing imagination of his, just blow you away. Then just when you are allowed a bit more of the plot you think, oh i know how this will end. How wrong you are, we really didn't see this type of ending coming at all. The story built up so much that we expected a far better and different ending to the one we got. Don't let that put you off though, as it's still quite an enjoyable film, and it had some pretty superb acting in too.

  9.  Pick Pick up a Penguin!

    Posted: 

    Just brought this from Play and we loved it. This documentary takes you through the mating rituals of the emperor penguin and what they have to go through to safe guard the survival of the egg. Heading of to their mating ground, they chatter until they find the perfect mate. (Well try to as there are more females than males). If their lucky the mother will have an egg and pass it on to the male so they can head off to feed again after giving birth to a egg half their body weight. The father protects the egg, huddling together with the other males through freezing blizzards. At Spring, when the egg hatches and the baby penguins are born the females return to their families and feed the babies. The fathers are finally relieved of their duties after months without food, and have to walk 70 miles before they can get a bite having lost half their body weight due to not eating, not many make it, thats why their are always less males. It really was so nice to watch, would have given it a 5 if the bit where one of the baby peguins gets it wasn't shown, but that's nature beautiful and yet sometimes cruel.

  10.  A Steve Martin Classic. Comedy at it's finest!

    Posted: 

    This is the film that put Steve Martin on the map of Comedy. Steve plays Navin Johnson, an adopted son of a poor black family. On his birthday he decides that he needs to see the world and get out to find out what his "special purpose" is, I won't give anything away but he certainly does! On his travels, he comes across a lady motorcycle circus rider, I use the term lady loosely!! Dodges his way from a nutcase with a shotgun, attracts a scruffy dog and meets the love of his life. A simple act of helpfulness makes him a millionaire by his chance invention of the "opti-grab" handle for glasses, right through to him losing it all in a bizarre twist of fate. So many classic one liners, and gags galore, you will laugh your way right through this film, so make sure you don't leave the room!
