5.0 out of 5 stars It's not perfect, but it's fun., January 4, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The story here is sparse, unless you go online to explore lore from the Grimoire, and progression can get to be a grind, but the graphics are gorgeous, the gameplay is smooth and fun, and the multiplayer (both co-op and PVP) is fantastic. While I might not play this if it weren't for the family and friends I am playing with, when you have a group of family and friends you enjoy playing with, it's a blast.

2.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous design, but I can't recommend, January 3, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These may yet be the greatest headphones ever. I wouldn't know. I couldn't get them to pair properly with my device, and I could get no feedback or support from the manufacturer. To start with, the documentation is very sparse and poorly written. There is nothing in the user's guide about a pass key, yet my device requires a pass key to securely pair with a Bluetooth device. When I tried to call the company about this pass key requirement, neither of their listed numbers (from their website) worked. One number never rang, but said it was connected for five seconds, then disconnected. The other number rang busy for a couple of seconds before disconnecting. The email link on their page is also invalid, as my gmail account bounced back my customer service request as undeliverable.
I was finally able to make it show that it was connected to my device by entering zeros until I guessed the number of digits the pass key should have. But when I tried to use it the voice of the person I was chatting with still came through the external speakers and they couldn't hear me.
I love the design, I like the idea of the single finger/double finger touch controls, and they were comfortable on my head, but I'm returning my pair and couldn't recommend them due to the non-existent support should you need it.

This works quite well for downloaded 360 games, but some downloadable Xbox classic games won't work on this drive for some reason.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as I expected, April 7, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've had to learn over the years not to expect movies to be as good as the books. When you can do this, and just let go, the movies based on your favorite books are more enjoyable. Yes, this varies from the book. Yes, the reoccurring goblin villain is unnecessary. But the visuals are stunning, the action is thrilling, and the trip is fun. I'm ready for the next one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Item was not as described, September 15, 2011
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The item was not as described, coming shipped in bubble wrap only instead of new in retail packaging as described. The controller, which was supposed to be new, also had several surface scratches and yellowed rubber grips on the analog sticks. In addition, it did not work correctly for controlling classic games when plugged into my Wiimote, not working at all on some games and exhibiting significant lag when used with Super Mario Bros. 3 on the Super Mario All-Stars disc.

Seller was quick to refund my money on return of the item; however they also told me that they would replace it for free after examining the defective one I returned, and they never followed through on that promise.

Tom Slick: True Life Encounters in Cryptozoology

5.0 out of 5 stars A great biography, March 22, 2011
If you're looking for the typical cryptozoology book, one full of quick anecdotes and numerous sighting reports and scary stories, you may want to pick up one of Loren's other books focusing on general oddities or specific monster types. They are among the best of the genre.
If, however, you're interested in the biography of a true American character, a businessman, an adventurer, and an iconoclast, this is the book for you. Yes, you'll also be interested if you happen to want to know what drove one of the men responsible for fueling the western fascination with the Yeti. But "Tom Slick" is a good read no matter how you feel about hairy hominids. I can't recommend it enough.

3.0 out of 5 stars Things you should know before buying!, December 15, 2009
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:2.0 out of 5 stars 
The website for creating these can be kind of confusing. Before you decide on these you should know.

1) You do not get a carbon copy of the pet you bought. You have the opportunity to create a pet of any type among the models available on the website. The website game doesn't have all of the animal models available in stuffed animals. (No panda, for instance.. bummer. So if you are hooked on playing as a panda, no love for you.)

2) When you enter your code, you are entitled to a pet but it doesn't show up immediately. You still need to create it. If you choose the "free" pet option at this point, you will only have limited access to the world (you'll have the free access that anyone can get by registering at the website). If you click the silhouette of a pet/ create a pet option, and then you use that pet to enter the website, you will have FULL access for one month. Despite what other reviews said, we got full access without subscribing and, after one month, weren't interested enough to pay the subscription fee, but still sometimes play with the free access we still have.

3) You DO have to create two separate accounts. One for parents, to control the account, and then an associated one for the child to log-in.

4) If you enter a user name for the account that has already been taken, you will get a generic error that says the name was denied for profanity. It isn't necessarily that the name is profane, just that it is not allowed (probably because it is already taken) and so the game throws this generic (and erroneously worded) error. Just choose a different name. Try adding numbers at the end if you like.

Hopefully what we've been able to find out after scouring [...] will make the frustrating process less troubling for other first time buyers.
