I had great expectations for this game. I had read a lot in magazines telling me this game was a must buy. So, I bought it. I was amazed at the level of detail in the game-play of this game. One of the better, more realistic games on the market for the time. The game-play was very quick and smooth on the xbox, doesn't take too long to load between missions. The main problem I had with this game was that I spent majority of the day playing this thinking there was still a lot left in the tank in terms of game play. Until suddenly after around 5 hours, the game was completed. This was a major disappointment as I was expecting to play for at least 10 hours worth of gaming. This is still a good game but don't expect to be on it for a long time
This piece of kit was bought on a whim having no real need for this in the home. I have had this 5 months now and cannot believe how good it is. Set up was easy, just follow the on screen instructions - you cannot got wrong. One great feature is that you can train the camera to recognise you, so when you turn the xbox on it will sign in to your profile. One drawback of this is every person that ever comes round your house to play on it will end up wanting their own profile.... this gets a little repetitive after a while. Another great feature is the voice recognition, this means that you can train it to recognise your voice to get it to do certain controls. There is one drawback to this but I have only had one game that has had the issue, im sure people can guess what it is before I have wrote it - space to play! As I say, there has only been one game that has given me issues but make sure you actually have a decent amount of space in your lounge before you buy this or you will think its a load of junk. If you buy this with early games it doesn't show its full potential, more recent games are really starting to show how good this product is, so I cant wait for games yet to come. The whole family play on this most nights having a great giggle whilst keeping reasonable fit.
In preparation to Fifa 12 coming out, I got this game to brush up on my Fifa playing skills. This game is absolutely fantastic, great graphics, great gameplay, great soundtrack. There are several game modes available for this game, quick match, tournament, be a pro.... the list is endless to keep you amused. Each game mode is addictive as the other with different challenges. New to online gaming, I thought i would give this a go online. With worries that there may be a bit of lag during gameplay, my fears were rapidly quashed. The only issue, which would be my fault entirely was that because I got the game late in the year was that everyones skill levels online is a lot better than mine. When trying to find a match that is fair with someone the same as me the network struggled - this meaning that I was playing someone of higher calibre. This isnt too bad once you have had a bit of practice. All in all this is a must for any football fan, yet another great fifa game in a long list.
Got this xbox around 5 months ago after trading my old classic xbox arcade. Going from a machine with a 20gb hard drive to one with 250gb is a massive jump and is one worth doing. You notice the difference after you download a few demo's and save a few games and haven't got anywhere near filling the hard drive. The machine seems a little quieter than the old one, definitely slimmer, looks better but runs the same (no faster boot up) My mixed emotions are around the fact that the main advantage that was sold to me with this machine was that it was quieter. having played around with this xbox, after installing the game on my old one and running from the saved file on the hard drive, i wouldn't say it was that much quieter. These have just dropped in price again and are worth the money for sure, add kinect on top of it and you are talking serious play!
Got this laptop for my mother (66 years old) who is a complete novice, she needed a nice big screen as she has bad eyes. This laptop was perfect for her. Setting up this machine was one of the easiest things you could ever do, as I say my mother has only just started using computers could do it herself After set up, you need to remove a load of junk on there but when you do, this is a lovely speedy machine. To top it all off, it has a hdmi port to connect to your tv to show photo's, video's etc. Nice little touch. For someone like my mother, a 320gb hard drive is more than enough, but might be a bit small for someone who wants to use it to download movies, store photo's etc. The nice thing is that this laptop is a nice silvery colour rather than the boring black ones, makes it look a bit more stylish. absolutely recomended!
