      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Excellent fun

      My partner is absolutely addicted to golf - he plays off a 3 handicap so (I am sure if you have actually played the real thing) you would agree he knows a thing or two about the "beautiful game"!! He bought this game for himself but I have to say that we have a real giggle playing it together! It is very playable, challenging and extremely realistic with fantastic graphics.

      It is much better than the Wii Sports golf but can be a little bit frustrating and confusing at first. The motion sensor is much more sensitive in this game than the Wii Sports Golf but you soon get used to it. If you just want to get on and play and dont have a very high patience threshold I would say stick with the Sports Golf but if you want to get your teeth into something much more challenging then I'd recommend this game to you.

      Highly recommended

      I have had this dishwasher now for about 6 months. Delivery was very swift and the Hotpoint man arrived when he said he would (always a major bonus). He was friendly and helpful and plumbed the machine in for me and took all the rubbish away with him! The machine works really well and is nice and quiet too. Actually it is so quiet that when we first had it my partner and I were not sure if it was actually on and we both stood (comedty fashion) bent over with our ears near the machine! The machine has lots of different settings including normal, pre-wash (very useful for very dirty dishes) and intensive. It also (very importantly) has an ECO wash which uses less electricity and less water. It also has a delay start option.

      I understand the machine comes in the usual white or silvery grey (which is the colour I have as it matches the Hotpoint Fridge also in our kitchen)

        One for the family

        My son (7) and I love this game. Right from the beginning when you can name your own town and start work for a very jolly Racoon called Tom Nook as a delivery boy doing some advertising and getting to meet and greet the town locals. Tom Nook lets you go eventually and then the game really gets underway. Whatever you choose to do like gardening, eating some fruit, lazy fishing, visiting the museum, chating to the neighbours and friends or just decorate your home - it is a brilliant game. One of the best features is that the game is set in "real time" so there are special festivals (like harvest and flowers) and fishing competitions. You can also use wi-fi connection and play with your mates which my son tried once with a friend of his and it seemed a pretty good feature. I would truly recommend this one as a family favourite!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Poor

        I bought this for my 7yo son - he loves High School Musical but being a boy he finds some of the stuff a bit too slushy. As an adult I was really disappointed by the quality of the graphics they are jerky and the game often freezes. As far as the graphics are concerned I really did expect a lot more from a Wii game in that respect.

        It also does not use the real voices of the stars which my son found really disapointing. Surely it wouldn't have been too much to ask for the real actors to be used? Personally, I dont think the game is very exciting either and is certainly not very good as a family game.

        I do however have a friend with 2 young girls and they think it is the best game ever so what can I say. I suppose it depends on how much you really love the TV show.

        This has to be one of the best action games I have ever played (I have played a few!).

        Basics of the storyline are that Leon Kennedy has been sent to Europe to rescue the president's kidnapped daughter, taking the setting away from Racoon City and the game replaces zombies with crazy villagers, who will attack you (excellent graphics and really intense). The whole game is set at a really fast pace and feels quite archadey which I find really effective. Finally coupled with some fairly tough bosses, and unlockable modes (2 additional story modes and the pick and play mercenaries mode) make this well worth the money.

        Just a shame that the best game on the Wii is a two year old gamecube game - however I do believe it is much better on Wii!!!!

        This game is really excellent and works really well with Wii's controls. The game can easily be played again and again - well certainly I never get bored with it. I certaily would recommend it to anybody. .

        Looking for a family game - buy this one.

        Do you know what, I am yet to be disapointed by any of the "Mario" series. They just get better and better! The games are really fun and they are much more challenging than I expected them to be. However, my son who is 7 (with a little bit of practice) can easily get into the games too. If you are good enough you get a world ranking too which my son really loves. As for me and my partner we just love to compete and this allows that to happen brilliantly. You get to unlock "dream" races and these are fantastic fun too. Its really cool how well the designers have integrated the motion controls - easily as good as Wii Sports. My favourite is the swimming and you have to learn how each character has a different tecnique. Missions are good too, these are just like the normal games but have tasks like "Beat A N Other Character at Swimming" etc.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Really, really absorbing and truly fantastic

          This is the best fun ever! You get really immersed into the game and just can't put it down.

          Firstly there is a brilliant car chase, just like in a high budget action movie. Then you get to explore the underground (subway) station. There are loads of effects that really make you think you are "in there" light lights humming as you get near to them, people walking around, trains come and go, its just like you are living in the game. The realism is brilliant.

          At the same time the game is really creepy. The use of sound effects and eerie music, along with the voices of the darklings, will make your hairs stand on end. Really made me quite jumpy but I am a girl!

          As the game goes on you get really sucked into the whole situation and the Darklings are really really spooky too.

          Absolutely brilliant!

          Even more of the fantastic brain training - just as brilliant as the first brain training. My partner and I love competing on the timed trials and brain age. Even my son who is 7 has fun on it. Lots of different sections to play and the more you play the more options are opened up to you.

          Absolutely fantastic! Really what more can I say. Even my son (7) thinks it is brilliant though I think it would be great if you could enter you age and the software could adapt to the player's age. My partner and I have great fun competing with each other on the timed trials and brain age sections. He always beats me on the simple maths though! I recommend anyone to buy this!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Excellent

          basically all the Nintendogs games are the same, its just up to you to choose which breed you like - I actually have the golden retriever one. You start off with not much money and you have a choice of dogs to choose from. Then you have to buy hair shampooo and brushes for grooming your dog and toys to play with like a frisbee also food, water and collars etc. You get to train your dog in different ways like learning to catch a frisbee, obstacle course jumping and obedience. When you tap the screen the dog comes up to you and you can stroke him and he likes it.you can take him for walks to the choice of two parks a quiet one to practise and another to interact with other dogs. Sometimes on out for walks your dog will might bring back a present which you can sell in the shop. When you enter competitions (frisbee throw and catch, obstable course and obedience) you do it for money and you get graded so make sure your dog is well trained. Overall this game is really good but once you have done it with your dogs and upgraded there isnt much to do so there isnt much replay value. Still get though its a brilliant game. Shame also that the dogs never grow up, they are always puppies.

              Fantastic

              I honestly belive that apart from Animal Crossing this is without doubt the best game for DS.

              You start the game as a character called Yoshi, then as you play on you unlock Mario, after that you unlock Luigi and finally Wario. The basic storyline of the game is Princess Peach bakes Mario a cake, Mario goes to find Peach to collect the cake with Wario and Luigi and ... Bowser locks them all up so until you beat Goomboss (he's a boss) you can't get the key to unlock Mario. Each player has their own wacky power Luigi's is water run, Mario's is wall jump, Wario's is Wario wack and Yoshi's swallow. There are lots of levels - my son's favourite is the Jolly Roger Bay as he gets to swim and explore underwater. To cut a long story short, if you're a DS owner buy this game my son (7) and I love it!

                Some pros and some cons - please read!

                My son is a massive fan of the original Yoshi's Island so I was bullied into bying this when it was released. However i am very dissapointed with it. The game is too similar to the one before so that much of it is boring for those who have played the original and it is very slow paced. Also, the new characters are supposed to add replay value but they just frustrate me. Also my son found some areas of the levels very very tricky too the point he nearly threw the DS in the bin! A game should be enjoyable - especially to children. However, some of the areas of the game are really really fun and challenging in a good way.

                Please don't let me put you off though - if you have never played Yoshi's Island before it is a good game - I would just deter people who have bought it and think this one will be better - it is not!

                Very addictive!

                My other half bought me this game for Christmas 06 and I have not stopped playing it! You can either play the game by yourself, working your way through the scenarios given to you in the basic package or you can go on line and play against the world!! Whenever I have logged on there has been anywhere from 1,000 to over 4,000 people on line at any one time depending on the time of day and day of the week.

                The graphics are brilliant, you can choose a variety of countries to play as and each country has a different strategy and strong attributes.

                You can choose to play a long "no rush" game say 45 mins which gives you time to build your ecomony up and a good army then everyone (up to 8 players (4 v 4)) attacks at once or you can play no rules and fight to be the first to attack and destroy the other teams. Attack too soon and you run the risk of using up all your resources or attack to late and loose the element of surprise!

                As I have said, the graphics are brilliant and the sound very effective!!

                  My son (7) and I (40) play this all the time - one of our favourites and we just cannot put it down. Lots of different cars to drive and tracks to race on. Truly addictive!You can race in tournaments against 7 other drivers and get trophies to put into your 'cabinet'. This is our favourite and we have great fun competing for extra star status. The better you drive the better the grade from E up to **.The better you get the more tracks and cars are added.Truly brilliant.
