5.0 out of 5 stars So many good things, June 16 2009
This game gives you quite a few things to do all of which are great fun. You have a challenging single player game you can attempt cooperatively with a friend. You have a great multi-player with great maps, and a Zombie mode which gives the game a whole other level.

This is on par with Modern Warfare by doing things a little differently and coming out with a great individual package.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first season, June 16 2009
This show just keeps getting better. This second season builds on the strengths of the first season the chemistry of the cast is obvious from the beginning. This show has an incredible mix of action, comedy and drama. As far as I'm concerned its probably the best show nobody knows about north of the border.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great update on a classic title., June 16 2009
This is probably the best tactical game on the DS. There is lots of value in the title, well over 30 hours of game play. I don't recommend this game unless you are a fan of the Anime or Mecha genre as it is a niche title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the series so far., June 16 2009
I must say that I have enjoyed this series from the first novel, but I have been a little critical about the length of the novels up to now. This finally ties up a lot of the loose ends from previous novels and has great pacing. The best thing is that this is the fifth book of a planned series of six novels. I highly recommend this series, and this book in particular.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best new series in years., May 17 2009
I just bought this series as I am a fan of Jeffrey Donovan. I was happy to see him finally get a leading role in a series. I was impressed by how good the series is. This series has a wonderful mix of humour and action that is supported by the entire class. Bruce Campbell and Gabrielle Anwar are both scene stealers. This series manages to stay away from clichés and has yet to get stale. A very worthy addition to anyone's DVD collection. I can't reccomend this series enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book for the aspiring author, March 30 2009
This book gives you not only several good pointers on how to write, but it also helps get you in the mood to write. I would have liked to have a little bit more help on how to structure ideas and an example of an outline would have been nice; but I was satisfied with the overall quality of the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it, March 30 2009
This review is from: RUN FATBOY RUN (DVD)
Probably one of the smartest comedies I have seen in a very long time. While Pegg's character is willingly dumb, those around him are very sharp and witty. You feel bad for Denis (Pegg) who is forced to compete with seemingly everyone around him who is in better shape either physically or mentally than he is. The movie is a great metaphor for the typical father who tries hard, but just can't seem to get it right.

A light, yet touching movie that I am very glad to have part of my collection.

The Icarus Hunt

5.0 out of 5 stars Among Zahn's most entertaining pieces, March 11 2009
I have always found the first person narrative form very difficult to like, in most cases, the hero comes out looking like a blowhard, or very vain. In this case; the hero has a good mix of self-deprecation and humor that makes him very human indeed.

This book a fast paced mix of light mystery and of sci-fi adventure. Those used to reading mystery novels will be able to putt all the strings together rather quickly while the uninitiated will be sucked in by Zahn's misdirection. I myself tend to not try and over-think my reads as its entertainment and I like to go where the author takes me, which lead me to be pleasantly surprised by the few twists and turns of the story.

What really sold me on this book was how fluid it is, its very easy to be engrossed in. The novel has a appeal that keeps you going from page to page easily and in my case, with a certain amount of anticipation. This book to me was quite the page turner, and even years after first reading it; it still has be reaching for my copy.

This book shows why Zahn is easily recognized as one of the best in the field of sci-fi. Quite desevering of all the accolades he has received over the years.

1.0 out of 5 stars A USMC and right wing American love-fest, Feb. 10 2009
I originally bought this book because it looked like a good read. When I really got down to it, I just couldn't bring myself to finish it. There are entire chapters of the book about the greatness of the Marine Corps and how there has never been and never will be a better fighting force. Then you add on top of that the entire socio-political aspects which seem to me are overly preachy.

Bottom line, too much talk, way too little action, and an agenda I simply didn't care for. This book is among the line of recent John Ringo, Michael Z. Williamson and Tom Kratman, but without the action or cleverness that elevated those other author's works.

I only recommend this book to niche readers who are only interested in having their own view point back at them. Otherwise this two dimensional work will leave you wanting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun!, Oct. 15 2008
This review is from: Saints Row 2 (Video Game)
This is a game that is purely about fun. Graphics and the AI are just passable, but lets be honest, this game is all about having a good time. This game is the ANTI-GTA IV for me. I thought that GTA IV had a great story and amazing graphics...but lacked a lot of fun factor. This game has a rather simplistic story, outdated graphics, but is it ever fun to play. I really liked the customization aspects and so far it looks like a game that I'll be able to go back to over and over again.

The story of this game is like a B movie that is so bad its good. Many of the story aspects are outrageous and unbelievable, but that's what makes it so compelling. You can't have the suspension of disbelief which is what makes this game so great. Were you to feel for these characters, you would hate their nihilistic little souls...but since you know its all kitsch and over the top drama you can let go and just have fun with it. That was my problem with GTA IV they made the character so real that it was easy to loathe him. In this case, your character and the world around him are likable because they're so unreal.

If you can look past over the flaws you'll have a superior game out of it. There is nothing really new, but nothing bad. Not a fantastic game, but a very good one.
