      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A good quality game for racing fans

      Ive recently purchased this game due to being a biker myself and enjoy anything to do with fast bikes.
      The game itself is based upon the well known Isle of man TT, which is well known for being an extreme motorcycling curcuit and has been going since 1907.
      the course itself is just over 37miles.
      In the game you can play what they call Mad Sunday, here you get to race the track with on-coming traffic to deal with....great fun
      In game mode you race against 10 other riders
      You can also race 2 player in the useual split screen mode.
      To help you get used to the track, you can play the tutorials that take you through every corner of the course.
      The bikes themselves handle much better than most games in the field with great responses to the controller.
      You can also choose your time of day and weather conditions.
      The game i found is great, theres a choice of over 50 bikes including different makes etc.
      The game also offers a sidecar mode of play.
      In general this is a very accurate replica of the real thing and lots of fun.

        Too small to be worth while

        What has a hazelnut in every bite, that was the advert, as for the chocolate bar itself, it seems to have been forgotten, all the other bars got bigger versions of them such as snickers and mars and even the kit-kat got chunky, but poor old Topic is still far too small, i guess it was never popular enough for them to enlarge it. once upon a time i'd always look for one whenever i was hungry but nowadays i go for value for money and try something more filling instead.
        Oh well heres hoping one day it gets a little bigger !

          dont do what they tell you all the time

          Ive recently had Iceland wedges and found that different brands can vary in size and flavour, but Iceland for me are by far the best, most of these bags do state to cook them in the grill or oven, but for me thats too long winded ! I like to slap a pizza in the oven and then 3 minutes before its ready just drop the wedges into a deep fat frier at around 150 degrees, the result is perfect tasting wedges every time.
          hope this hint helps, happy eating.

            A great bash em up game

            This really is the best boxing game around.
            This game has a vast choice of contests and the more practise you get, the more chance you have of winning.
            Play Now mode.
            choose play now and get ready for a 12 round battle, you get to choose from 6 different weights and a variety of boxers in each. Then choose again for player 2 or against the computer, a good idea is to practise on the little guys !!
            Then you can choose one of 3 venues. You can unlock more of these in the Career mode as you progress.

            Game Screen
            This displays your Health meter-which shows the damage your fighter can take before he gets knocked down.

            Energy Meter
            This shows your energy level, the higher the energy the stronger your punches.

            Round counter/clock is shown in the top of the screen.

            Knockdowns
            If you get knocked down then to pick yourself up you have to align the blurred image of the ref or set the game to auto recover(much easier)

            End of Fight
            If the fight goes the distance then the score cards are added up to decide the winner.

            Penalties/stoppages
            Watch the low blows and other cheap shots such as headbutting, if the ref spots you he'll dock you points and if you keep doing it he will disqualify you.

            Offence.
            Try to block your opponents shots and counter punch as these blows do more damage, remember not to throw too many as your energy levels will drop.

            Career Mode
            This is where the real test begins, here you start at the bottom and work your way up the rankings at the same time improving your boxer and earning money, if you are good enough you may get a shot at the title.
            Also in this mode you get to choose who you fight, schedule your fight and then you get the training option, here you can win more points to improve your fighter even more or simply choose auto train, but this doesnt improve him as much.
            There are 8 areas in which to boost your boxer
            power-agility-speed-stamina-chin-body-heart and guts.

            The game can be played on different levels and should give great pleasure and a whole lot of fun, especially when you see your opponents legs buckle as he heads for the canvas.
            The replays alone will make you laugh and look out for the special punches to do some real damage.

              16 and under its a good game, especially with the G-Con 2 light gun

              I recently purchased Virtua Cop - Elite Edition for my son who is 7, for use with the G-Con 2 light gun. The age rating for this game is 16+ but after playing the game im sure you would agree that this was set far too high. The good thing about the elite edition is that you get Virtua cop 1 & 2 on the same disc.
              Training mode.
              just incase you have difficulty in the game mode, here you can get some shooting practise.
              Options.
              Here you can change various settings, there are a total of 13 options in which to play the game,
              Difficulty/gun loosness/lives 1-9/continues free play 0-9/
              audio/controller settings/calibrate gun/sights on-off/gun select/play mode VC1 or VC2.
              The game is based on a policemen going single handedly out to take on all the bad guys(its a one man war).
              Each stage can take a different direction depending on which way you decide to go when asked, unfortunatly these stages are not long enough to really get stuck in.In the stages you are moved automatically around on foot and in vehicles, you get to shoot men in trucks/helicopters/cars and bikes but beware, dont shoot the good guys(i did-oops),At the end of each level you get to face the gang bosses, ranging from machines to people on jet packs firing missile like bombs at you. The overall game is good but it left me wanting more, I paid £12.99 for mine and at that price its a good game and worth the money, but as i said before, it will suit kids more than adults.

              A fantastic destination for famillies

              We recently went on holiday to Portugal, staying in Albafeira at the Paraiso De Albafeira which is situated between The Strip and Old Town Albafeira.
              The strip is well known for its night life and ideal for those looking to party until the wee hours.
              Old town is more for famillies, its full of quaint streets with little shops and is a lovelly place to wander in the evenings, with its street entertainers and little market stalls all mixed in together and small bars where you can stop and have a drink while listening to some local music.
              It also has a fantastic beach, with its calm waters and golden sand, makes it ideal for kids and with the hot weather Portugal has to offer, its great.
              The Paraiso itself is about 30mins from the airport by coach, Its a huge hotel and first impressions are excellent.
              With its 8 floors there are an adequate number of lifts throughout the hotel, The hotel also has a gift shop, a mini supermarket, a jewellers, a hairdressers, a gym and indoor pool etc. It also boasts a number of restaurants and bars which are fantastic and they have a kids club.
              The entertainment was first class and covers a wide range of activities for all ages, outside there is an 18 hole crazy golf course, a tennis court/five aside court, plus the best bit, a huge outdoor pool and wide open spaces around consisting of a pool bar and food area serving all day long, if you go all inclusive then you will need a diet when you get home for sure.
              The all round cleanliness was second to none as you even had 2 cleaners working all day long in the toilets by the pool. This was the best holiday weve had !

                great little familly car

                I Have recently bought a Picanto SE Glamour for the wife, previously she had a little 3 door 206 which was ok, but I never felt at home in it when i borrowed it to pop down the shops. When we looked at the car in the showroom, I was amazed at how much space there is inside such a small car.
                From inside you would think it was a much larger car.
                Test drive
                We took the car for a short spin and found one fault with the car, nothing bad though, it was the fact that the breaks were so sharp that i ended up with my face against the windscreen at the first junction(i could blame it on my wifes driving, but just incase she sees this i wont). after a few laps around the block we decided to go back and speak to the salesman, they were great, they gave us zero percent finance up to 5 yrs, whichever we wanted.
                One week later we popped down and picked it up, they even gave us half a tank of fuel.
                The engine is a 1.1 and gives a great 42mpg and you can fill the tank up for a mere £23.
                The car itself runs well with power steering, electric windows, jvc cd player, central locking alloy wheels,disc brakes all round etc and also has dual airbags.
                The only fault with the car is the boot space is very small, but if you dont need a large boot then i would reccomend this car to anyone who is looking for a cheap reliable car as it has enough space for all the familly and plenty of leg room.

                A real classic horror

                What a cracking film, I saw the first one at the cinema and its one of those films that keeps you on the edge of your seat, the story was good, the acting was excellent and the ending gave way for the sequel, and i couldnt wait!
                I know at times the sequels can be a little dissapointing but this one was outstanding, if i had to choose between the two, i would have chosen Final Destination 2.
                Every scene keeps you on the edge, waiting for what you think is going to happen, but i was totally wrong most of the time and the surprise way that people died was amazing.
                After watching it, i then waited for the dvd to come out and got it asap, i then not only watched it again but the beauty of this is that it contains the making of the film and lots of other extras aswell. It really is a work of art. I dont want to give you the ins and outs of the film as that will spoil it, all I can say is, this is a must see film for people who like a little GOR or a lot of GOR

                  Superstars contains 12 mini games that all vary in styles but are all controlled using your body movments, hers an insight into each game

                  SAMBA DE AMIGA

                  CRAZY TAXI
                  Here you have to make some noise, the object of this game is to get the attention of the taxi by shouting and waving your arms, to raise the gauge as high as possible and progress to the next level.

                  HOUSE OF THE DEAD
                  Here you are in a graveyard, the object is to hit all the monsters and bats before they get you.

                  SPACE CHANNEL 5
                  Here you have to memorise dance moves and perform them after the lady on the screen.

                  CHUCHU ROCKET

                  NIGHTS INTO DREAMS
                  Here you fly through the rings to reach the Palace before time runs out

                  CHAO GARDEN
                  Here you have to hatch CHAO and then feed him and play with him

                  Well that just about sums up this game, full of fun for everyone, hope you enjoy it as we all did.

                    Outstanding value for money

                    This really is one of the funniest ever games in the Crash Bandicoot series. Right from the word go you work together with the evil Dr Cortex, using him to smash through objects, using him as a surfboard,fighting with him as you roll through tunnels collecting lives and apples as you go and throwing him to enable you to hit objects, with the main goal of collecting the crystals.
                    Since the very first crash game the quality of the game has improved tenfold and now each level is getting longer and far more challenging.
                    At the end of every level as before you have to challenge the bosses, which at times can be a challenge above all others, but they can be done with a little patience and a few attempts. I would definately recommend this game for its sheer fun and the quality of the game keeps you wanting more

                        My 2 boys pestered me for this game, until i gave in.
                        The single player mode can be very difficult at times and will suit teenagers more than younger gamers...but if help is what you need, then one cheat is all you need, yep...you guessed it, infinity lives. Most playstation sites will have these codes,without these codes i think i would have been trying to beat this game for quite a while,but even without the cheat, its still a great game, so may the force be with you !!
