      Awesome game that's fun for anyone!

      There have been a few rumours about this game being the same as the first one, just with different material. Those rumours should be thrown out of the window! It should be a question of what hasn't changed not was has changed.

      There is so much content in this game, I don't know where to start! But like most people, i'll start at the beginning. When you first start the game, you hear Steven Fry's amazing voice explaining what Little Big Planet is, with breathtaking animations to go with it. If you had the first Little Big Planet game, don't be upset about losing all those precious materials, costumes and stickers because it gives the option to import your last account! So all is not lost.

      The first few story levels explain simply, how to play. So if you played Little Big Planet One, you should sail through these levels with no trouble what so ever, but if our new to the little big planet, you should learn it all easy enough. Now a game like this wouldn't be worth getting if there was no multiplayer, so you can choose to play the story mode with friends or with anyone around the world! But the awesome fun of multiplayer doesn't stop there, because the game has a level maker which allows you to make your own levels and publish them to the little big planet community and play levels made by other players! But of course that elemnt of the game is not new, so if you played the first one, you'll know everything about it...
      Although the creator idea is not new, the content in the creator is all new.

      There are new powerups, new materials, new tools and new switches. Just naming a few! My favourite item introduced into this game is the 'Controlinator' (the name sticking to the crazy nature of the game) for me and players of the first LBP it's a dream come true, it gives the player ability to use buttons on the controller as switches instead of using hundreds of other switches!

      The new powerups are a load o' fun! the 'grabinator' which gives you the ability to lift and move things much heavier than you would normally be able to, the other is the grappling hook which is exactly what is sounds like, it's a hook that can be fired from the players arm and grap onto anything that is normally grabbable. The others are nothing new, but they are just as fun are the jetpack, scuba gear and the 'paintinator.' The jetpack allows the player to fly, the scuba gear allows the player to swim underwater without having to return to the surface for air and the 'paintinator is a paintball gun that the player can hold and fire at switch triggers or at other players!

      You really have to play it to see how brilliant and orignal it is.

      Great game that you can run on most laptops or computers.

      I have to say this game is amazing! I'm saving up (on dooyoo!) for a proper gaming computer because my

      current one looks like it is made of stone, and I swear it says 'made in Bedrock' on the back! But this game seems

      to run perfectly well on my current computer, with fairly good quality. However I did have to change the graphics settings on the game menu, but that was simple enough!

      I love the idea of this game, because (unlike in my house) I get to be the boss of everything! For example: You can tell your settler (the person who makes your cities) where to put your new city, what it should be called and what it should build in the city. That is just a small part of the game, it stretches from you hitting an enemy because you have a bigger stick than them, and calling in a tactical nuke, well, because you feel like it!


      There are plenty of countries that you can choose to be, but it's not just about picking a country because you live there or they're your favourite football team, all the countries have different ways of living/developing, for example, American - industrious, and you get the idea!

      Friends of mine have spent years of their lives playing the civilization series. So as you can probably tell, this game is VERY addictive and can get quite frustrating when your quiet, peacful, little city gets bombed and nuked. Once you have been conquered, you have to start right back from the beginning, unless you load a previously saved game.

      A great guitar for anyone!

      I have loved this guitar from the moment i bought it. I bought the yellow version of this guitar, but the specs and sound are exactly the same.

      The first thing I noticed when I picked up this guitar in the shop was that the strings are closer to the fretboard, which makes it much easier to push down the strings and to complicated hammer ons and so on.

      The string locks work very well even when going absolutley bonkers with the whammy bar! And say you need drop D tuning, it is surpisingly easy to undo th string locks, as each lock holds two strings each, and just one allen key to do all of them. You might be thinking that It would be arkward to do precise tunings becasue you'd have to unlock all of the string locks just to change the note by a fraction, but it has precise tuning wheels where the strings are attached to at the base.

      It is very comfy thanks to it being shaped so that your arm can fit over it easily to reach the strings.

      Thanks for reading!

        Great game that anyone can play!

        Have you ever had too much cola at a party? Or too many fizzy sweets that have sent you or your kids bouncing off the walls, thanks to all the sugar and caffeine. Well this game sums up just about all of that madness in one disc!

        As soon as you get to the start up menu of the game, the craziness starts! You can do things like pull his famous 'tash and his eyes follow the pointer around the screen. The whole reason this game is mad is because of the 'moves' that you have to do. For example, the 'mohawk' is where you hold the wii remote on your head like a mohawk. Or the 'waiter' which is where you place the wii remote on the palm of your hand with your fingers stretched out straight. With this you can play games where you have to keep a broom upright on the palm of your hand, and so on.

        As the nintendo wii is a 'family friendly' console, anyone from you auntie, to your nepheiw!

        Thanks for reading!

        great stereo for the price

        Ok, so when your friends come over for your annual BBQ, you have to have a kick ass audio to just about break next doors windows! And this fits the job more than fits the job more than perfectly!

        It's great with a built in FM tuner and an ipod dock, you can blast the tunes so loud, all the neighbourhood cats will be in the north pole before you can turn it down!

        It has a cd player on the top which flips open, so be sure to leave enough space for it to open.

        It was unbelievably easy to set up with only a few cables to plug in. I was quite happy with the price as it has cd player, ipod dock, mp3 player and a built in fm radio.

        It has a normal sized headphone socket on it for rocking out in private, a lcd display for easy navigation of the menu. Size of the main unit (H)23.3, (W)14.8, (D)21.6cm. Size speaker (H)23, (W)13.4, (D)15.2cm. It also has a
        remote for skipping tracks and so on.

        Thanks for reading!

        A good game at a very good price.

        Now, playing this game is fairly relaxing. Rather than sprinting round with a rifle blasting peoples brains to bits, as an attempt to be a high rank on the worldwide leader board!

        I personally think that the wii controller without wii motion plus, is not the most accurate thing, so even when you know the solution to a problem, and know how you are going to do it, the wii remote isn't always reliable in placing an object in a very precise place.

        As the wii is a console well know for being the most 'family-friendly' big brand games console. As the most popular games for it are games like Mario and Raymond Raving Rabbids and so on.

        I love the feature of being able to create and edit your own levels, and that's on any game, not just this one.

        I sometimes find myself playing when I get up in the morning, as it is great to get my brain up and running before I start my day

        Why not get it? It's not a big loss anyway if it doesn't work!

        At a first glance, most people have a modern looking kitchen, and this 'cheap and cheerful' toaster would fit in just about any kitchen with a fairly modern look.

        Now this is what I do for anything and everything that I want to buy. If there is a cheap supermarket brand version for a much lower price, then if it doesn't work, no big loss.

        One down side to this product is that it doesn't take thick loaves of bread only thin ones. I have been relatively pleased with all previous products I have bought from Asda, well with Asda own brand products anyway.

        A feature that I have found very useful is the heat adjustment wheel that you can clearly see on the bottom right of the product picture at the top of the page. I found this useful because I can time it with my morning so I can get up, turn on the toaster, get dressed, have a coffee ect and by the time I'm done, my toast is just about done for a nice tasty breakfast!

        Thanks For Reading!

        A great, fun game that can last the night!

        What a classic!

        Anyone of any age could spend hours trying to beat the rest of their family in a battle of witts!

        You get a variety of metal counter type objects to move around london (the board) Even before the game starts there is a small amount of competition to see who can grab the car counter first!

        There are plenty of versions of this amazing game, if playing the original over and over again gets a bit boring. From credit cards to 3D buildings!

        the idea of monopoly is to try to be the one who still has money at the end. A person is out if they run out of all their money, and have no property to sell or mortgage. So you can see why it can be a long game. Especially if you have about 4 people playing!

        I have loved this game ever since my parents showed me how to play!

          An amazing mouse for anyone, in buisness or not, with notebooks or not!

          I absolutley love it! this mouse was a gift from a friend of mine, and i haven't stopped thanking him since! the first time I used it (being a man) chucked away the instructions and plugged it in, well i tied to anyway, after recovering the instructions, i found out that the 'barely visible' wireless reciever was neatly packed into the mouses body along with the batteries.

          It runs on just 2 aaa batteries with a great battery life. One thing that i soon realised about this mouse was the fact that when the reciever is out, it turns on. But when the reciever is put back, it turns off. so simple but so very useful.

          As soon as I got this mouse I went straight to the logitech website and downloaded logitech setpoint software, which allows you to custom program all the buttons. I noticed that in the description, it says 5 buttons, but i can count eight!

          The only downside is from a personal perspective, the scrolling wheel has barely any resistance. You could spin it and it would still be spinning 7 seconds later! But if you don't mind that, I would definatley reccoment this mouse!

          Great for anyone, beginner or pro.

          What can't you do with this thing!?

          great distortion and a good variety of knobs to change distortion and so on. love the sound!

          I received this as a small christmas gift, doesn't make sense to me either, death metal on Jesus christ's birthday... but I have loved it from the moment i plugged it in, you can play stuff from aerosmith to papa roach on this thing!

          It runs on a normal 9V battery or a 9V power adaptor. So far, I have only had to change the battery once or twice since I got it. It has a very clever function on it, where it is not using any power until you plug in both guitar leads in.

          One downside is that you can't leave it set up all together next to your amp without wasting the battery, so before you get rocking out, you have to connect up all your guitar leads to stop you draining your battery without even using it, that is if you are using the battery, but if you use the mains lead, your good to go!

          Well it's good for it's price, but there are better alternatives.

          Well you get what you pay for. It definatley isn't the best adapter of this kind on the market currently.

          It depends what you are using it for thought, if it just for a home video, or something similar that doesn't really require amazing quality, this would do the job no-doubt. But say if you were recording something for a presentation or something that requires high quality recording, you would be better off getting an alternative.

          This product is mostly used when trying to record gaming, on PS3, Wii or xbox. I have used this to record my Playstation 3, and once you get the driver software and editing software installed with the provided disk, it has fairly good quality, and changing the fps determines how 'smooth' the playback is.

          It doesn't only work with the provided software, it can be used on just about any movie making/movie editing software that allows you to capture video from a camera or webcam.

          Great radio!

          Firtst of all, dab radios are just great. I knew that I wanted a fairly slim, good quality dab radio. And this is perfect (and more!)

          It has crystal clear sound with a very simple way of re-tuning itself incase for some reason the sound isn't perfect. Just hold down the button for a couple of seconds and it has re-tuned itself.

          The thing I love about this radio inparticular, is the lcd screen on the front, which gives you a small bit about the radio station or the song playing or maybe the cowtdown or chart that the radio station is playing.

          It does not just have the dab stations on it, it has FM statons on it aswell.

          I love the buttons to choose the station, without looking closely, you can arely notice the buttons which are also the cover for the lcd screen.

          I think it's great and I hope you do to!

            a great set of high quality headphones for an AMAZING price!

            Sony headphones? for ten pounds? BLIMEY!

            I got these on a short search for a fairly cheap, quality set of ear-cup headphones. Luckily I found exactly what I was looking for. It didn't take long for me to tear open the packet to get them on and have them blasting some Pendulum in my ears!

            Very high quality sound, deep and clear bass, amazing comfort and a very lightweight design, thanks to Sony's use of high quality materials. (as always!)

            With a frequency range of 18Hz - 22,000Hz, it can blast any song into your head with amazing quality. As these are studio monitoring headphones (but also for daily use) each ear-cup can swivel almost 180 degrees so that a single ear-cup can be placed on one ear at a time.

            I also use these to listen to my guitar by plugging them into my amplifier, and having the same effect of playing it really loud without the neighbours screaming the door down!

            Another great use for these is gaming. Say if you are on a game like call of duty, having high-quality surround sound headphones on (like these) you can even tell where people are shooting at you from, but games are not the limit with these headphones!

              A great printer for anyone.

              A huge decrease in price, as it used to be around £90, a great value printer.

              as soon as I had opened the box, I didn't hesitate to get the software installed, which was surprisingly easy.

              Once I had the printer on the desk, ready to plug in, I realised that there are a few polystyrene packaging pieces actually inside the printer! so be sure to remove them before you get printing.

              One of the features of this printer that I found very useful, was that if your camera has a removable memory card (SD card) you can plug it straight into the printer (even if the printer isn't plugged into your PC) and it lets you scroll through your photos, on the in-built LCD screen, so you can choose which you want to print.

              The cartridges that were supplied with the printer were very easy to fit and have produced great quality prints, even though the prints were a bit slow.

              I am 100% happy with this purchase and haven't had any problems with it so far.

              I would recommend this printer to anyone who is looking for a budget printer.

              great pets, if you are willing to take care of them.

              Thanks to FourPaws tips this is an edited version of my review.

              In my opinion, if you are devoted enough to want a lizard, I think the easiest one to look after is the leopard gecko. Because you only have to clean the tank properly (with lizard friendly disinfectant) every 2-3 weeks, they do their business in one corner so you can just scoop it out with a mini sieve like I do, or with some tissue.

              If you feed your gecko the correct amount and type of food, it should be happy and lively. As soon as I got got my gecko, when it was about 6 months old (juvenile) I fed it on 5 medium sized locusts per day. After about another 6 months old (as is was getting fairly big) I fed it on 3 large size locusts per day but allowing a day off every couple of days. But water change should be daily. If you spend quite a lot of time watching your gecko, or just being near it, it will probably get used to your face, therefore more likely to want to come out of the tank when it gets a bit older.

              Geckos are great pets, (if you look after them properly) but if you are going to get one, please make sure you are ready to care for it. If you look on the internet, it will probably tell you that leopard geckos don't need a very big tank. But I am all against the small tanks. I don't mean go ahead and buy a huge one, I mean get a medium sized one so your gecko has somewhere to crawl and climb.

              The way I got my gecko to come out of the tank and walk about a bit was to every, or every other day just put my hand in the tank and leave it there for a few minutes (don't shake or twitch because it might think your food!) and then take it out again. This is so your gecko knows that your hand isn't a threat, so it will be more willing to come out. I have done this for a while now and now when I put my hand in, he crawls straight on.

              Leopard geckos are fairly easy to monitor when it comes to heat, I just have a medium sized heat mat, it is important that if you get a heat mat, don't get it to cover the whole of you vivarium, only a side or a corner (both sides must have some sort of shelter/house.) This is because your gecko needs to regulate its temperature naturally so if it is to cool, it will go to the side/corner that has heat, and if it is to hot, it will go to the cooler side/corner. And it needs shelter on the hot and cold side because it needs to feel safe and secure, so it doesn't get cold because it is to scared to leave its other house.

              Shedding, my gecko sheds roughly once every 3 or 4 weeks or so. If they don't eat while/ or slightly after shedding, not to worry, it might just be a bit worried because its skin will be very tender. But if it continues not to eat for a while after, consult your local pet shop or vets, for any additional advice.

              I haven't got a particularly large tank, but it is big enough for my gecko to be happy and get some exercise. I have got a exo terra terrarium, it is a fairly large one, that I haven't had any problems with so far. For more info on this terrarium, I have reviewed it, so be sure to check it out!

              Great pets if you are willing to care for one, try what I said, it worked for me!

              If you have any questions, please ask, I will do my best to answer them!

              Thanks for reading!

              And remember, only get one if you are willing to take care of it.
