3.0 out of 5 stars okay game, but too much DLC available already., February 10, 2015
Based on what I've played during a few hours, I do like the game for what it is.

4v1-style multi-player, solo play available, and that offline unlocks and progress carry over online. (Hunt mode is my favorite gamemode so far)

The game runs at 30fps and at 1080p. I thought it was 60fps, but I guess not.

My only problem is the DLC. Buyable DLC already, and the game JUST CAME OUT.

Why is a monster skin $7? And as some reviewers mentioned, not even actual skins, just simple color changes.

You can buy skins/camos for guns, but $5 for each class (Assault, Medic, etc). Seriously?

And of course, the lovely Season Pass ($25) makes another appearance.

I like this game so far, but the DLC-thing is unreal.

Edit: tried putting a few more hours into this, and I got pretty bored of it. Not sure if it's the grinding to unlock stuff or not, but this game ended up being a disappointment for me. So I traded it in.

4.0 out of 5 stars ... know what any of the map pack DLCs are like, I can't leave a legit review, January 1, 2015
Since we don't know what any of the map pack DLCs are like, I can't leave a legit review.

BUT...I will say this.

Buy the Pass if you KNOW you're going to buy all the map packs. Saves you $10.

Maybe Season Pass owners will get exclusive items as well, such as guns, gear, etc someday.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works great with the PlayStation 4, December 26, 2014
I bought this primarily because the stock 500GB HDD in my PS4 was running out of space (thanks the games huge space requirements), so I decided to bump the capacity to a 1TB drive.

After installing the SSHD into my PS4, I had to do a fresh install of the PS4's System Software, since there's obviously nothing on it. After the OS installation, the free space remaining was around 800GB or so. I was hoping for at least 900GB, but oh well. Still miles better than the 50GB HDD.

I haven't noticed any differences between the drives in terms of loading time, etc., so I can't say too much about that.

Great for PS4 and Xbox One users, especially if you plan on downloading lots of games + DLC and recording videos.

4.0 out of 5 stars Alright CE., November 11, 2014
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
EDIT 11/11/14: I should mention that the game takes about 49GB, Atlas Gorge needs about 500MB, and the Atlas Pro content/Season Pass about a 1-2MB.

[THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE CONTENTS OF THE ATLAS PRO EDITION, NOT THE GAME ITSELF]

Alright, for $120, you get a lot of content here, most of which are DLC items.

The DLC items are
-Custom Atlas helmet/Exo-suit
-Custom Atlas-branded weapons. (BAL-27 AE assault rifle and Atlas 45 AE pistol)
-Custom Atlas calling card/background for Multiplayer
-5 Supply Drops for Multiplayer
-One token for Single Player (to modify Exo-suit)
-Soundtrack for Advanced Warfare
-Atlas Gorge map (compatible with Multiplayer)
-Season Pass
-Advanced Arsenal pack (EM1 Quantum laser rifle and "Bullet Brass" Exo-suit)
-Day Zero content (AK-12G assault rifle and Crossbow-B2)

The physical items are the "Welcome to Atlas: Advanced Soldier Manual" and a collectible Steelbook.

-The Atlas helmet/Exo-suit are pretty nice looking. All-white, and contains the Atlas logo on both items. Makes you stand out, I suppose.The Atlas Weapons really aren't any different than the variants already in the game. For example, the stats for the BAL-27 rifle and the BAL-27 AE rifle are the exact same. Rather unusual. Only difference is the white, Atlas-branded camos. If you don't like the look of it, then you can always change the gun's camos. (I'm assuming the same applies to the Advanced Arsenal and the Day Zero content weapons).

-The Atlas calling card looks similar to the "Welcome to Atlas: Advanced Soldier Manual"'s cover.

-The items you get from the Supply Drops can be almost anything, from special guns to customization gear. You never know what you're going to get.

-The upgrade token for the Single Player? I haven't started the Campaign, so I can't whether it is useful or not. (I would hope it is anyway).

-The soundtrack is composed by Harry Gregson-Williams (composer of the Modern Warfare 1 OST) and Audiomachine. Gregson-Williams does the "orchestral" pieces while Audiomachine does the "futuristic-type" music. I haven't really listened to it too much, but what I've heard so far, it's not that bad.

-Atlas Gorge is based off Modern Warfare 1's Pipeline map, so if you liked that map, you'll probably like the reimagined version as well. (Didn't get the Special/Collector's Edition of this game? The Season Pass will allow you access to this map as well.)

-Season Pass gives you access the 4 DLC packs for no additional charge.

-Advanced Arsenal and the Day Zero guns are pretty neat. Just like the Atlas Pro guns, the stats for these aren't any different than the ones already in the game.

-As for the Physical stuff, the "Welcome to Atlas: Advanced Soldier Manual" is a hybrid of a "manual" for the Atlas Corp and an artbook. It contains things like the company history, weapon stats, concept art, and more.

-And lastly, the Steelbook is pretty nice. Shows different artwork, holds up a bit better than the normal Blu-Ray cases.

Is this really worth the $120+? Well, buying the Standard Edition plus the Season Pass is $110, so really, I figured, "well, for an extra $10, I can get those two items, plus a bunch of other stuff".

Use your best judgement.

3.0 out of 5 stars ADVICE, September 28, 2014
The album is pretty decent, but before you buy this, keep something in mind:

All the songs here are really just "remixes" of the in-game dynamic music. See, all the in-game scores (not the radio songs), have several "layers" to them.

Here's how I look at it..

For example, the file "A Bit Of An Awkward Situation" has several different "layers" that can be mixed together to create different. It has a "quiet/calm" layer, a "tension" layer, and an "action" layer.
If you listen to this file here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHPJBm4fTWo), you'll notice that it starts from a "calm" sound and gradually mixes to "action".

From 0:00 to about 10:29, it's all "calm". Then from 10:30 to 14:41, the music changes from "calm" to "tense". After the 14:41 mark, the music changes to "action" and back to "tense".

Anyway, what I'm saying is that these files are generally remixes of what you'll hear in the game. Hell, some of the files listed on this soundtrack album aren't even in the game! (Ex. "Therapy And Other Hobbies").

This album isn't for you if you want extended scores.

4.0 out of 5 stars Durable tripod, low price., September 7, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I actually thought this would be one of those cheap (quality) tri-pods, but it's really not. It holds up very well. Fits my iPod Touch 5G. Definitely useful for when I'm using FaceTIme/Skype/etc and I don't want to be holding the damn device the entire time. Definitely would recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Enough, November 12, 2013
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This game actually runs pretty well (60fps!), just like its console counterparts. While the graphics are definitely not the best on the Vita, it looks okay (I mean, you'll be focusing more on the fight and not your player's outfit). Not the best, but not the worst either.

Game also comes with a download voucher for the "INJUSTICE: Gods Among Us - The Album". NOT the original score, but the one with actual music artists, such as Depeche Mode, Rise Against, etc.

Definitely worth purchasing if you're a fan of this game, especially since it comes with EVERYTHING. All characters, 60 new S.T.A.R. Lab missions (for the DLC characters), and ALL the skins (and yes, even the iOS-exclusive skins, like the Batman Beyond skin everyone likes so much).

4.0 out of 5 stars Not sure whether the $180 is worth it..., December 14, 2012
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
**THIS IS NOT A REVIEW OF THE GAME, BUT RATHER OF THE CARE PACKAGE AND THE CONTENTS.**
I will review the game itself later.

While the game could be better, the Care Package really does look really nice.

So, what do you get with this?
-Care Package box
-Steelbook case
-MQ-27 Dragonfire (Quadrotor) RC with Controller (obviously), batteries, manuals, stand, and "repair stickers"
-Nuketown Zombies
-Nuketown 2025
-Soundtrack (Digital Copy)
-PS3 Dynamic Theme (Turbine from Multiplayer)
-PS3 Dynamic Theme (Zombies' TranZit)
-Nuketown 2025 playercard background
-Nuketown Zombies playercard background
-Weapon Camo
-2 exclusive "Challenge Coins" used to unlock "exclusive content"

The Care Package box itself is really big, and contains 2 big boxes and one cardboard display showcasing the Coins and Steelbook. The box is made of a thick plastic, which makes it pretty durable. I use mine to store my Call of Duty collectibles.

The Quadrotor is made of styrofoam, which makes it really light, and possibly very weak in terms of strength. You can fly it up, down, left, or right, but you cannot turn it in mid-air. Meaning, you cannot rotate it 90 degrees while in flight. You can charge it from the controller or use the small USB cable that comes with it to charge it using your computer. It may take about 30 minutes, depending on the battery level. Yes, batteries are supplied this time, unlike in Black Ops 1's Prestige Edition. For some reason, I was only given 3 batteries, when the controller needs 6. The Quadrotor has a decent battery life as well.

Nuketown Zombies takes place in the 1960's Nuketown, and it also takes place during Moon's Easter Egg, which explains the nuke explosion. (You'll frequently hear radio transmissions from Richtofen as rounds progress) It's a really small map, and it's fairly easy. You can only play Survival, and you can play as the CIA or the CDC. It's really fun with 4 players, but it's also fun on Solo too, once you get used to how the map works. One interesting note about this map is that the M27 (AR) and the LSAT (LMG) can be earned from the Mystery Box, whereas you cannot get these weapons in Green Run. Why these guns are exclusive to this map I do not know. Also, buy the Black Ops 2 Season Pass and you'll get NTZombies once it's released to the public.

Nuketown 2025 is basically Nuketown from Black Ops, just re-designed with new buildings and environment. The map still contains campers (hell ,what map DOESN'T?). If you want to play this map, you'll have to go to Chaos Moshpit or select it in Private Match. Treyarch will have NT2025 24/7 playlists during "special events".

The soundtrack is a digital copy, which means it's a download. It is not a download from iTunes, but rather from the Call of Duty website. It contains 49 songs, is composed mainly by Jack Wall. Other artists include Trent Reznor, Brian Tuey, and even Mozart. I haven't really listened to most of the soundtrack, so I can't really say whether it's good or not.

The themes are pretty cool, one showcases Turbine, and the other showcases TranZit from Zombies. Since the themes are dynamic, theme is well, animated. The turbines spin, the Zombie Bus has flashing lights, ashes fall from the sky, etc.

The weapon camo is really a Digital-style camo, with random orange patches on it. Looks good on most weapons, and is instantly unlocked. If you want to equip it, go to "Personalize Weapon", and go to the "DLC" tab and you'll find it.

The Playercards are used for Multiplayer, and are instantly unlocked. One is a background of Nuketown 2025 and the other features Nuketown Zombies. The Zombies' playercard however is really just a picture of a bunch of Zombies packed next to each other. But, each look nice and are in the DLC tab (when selecting a playercard)

The Challenge Coins are actually coins (a friend of mine told me how one of his friends thought they weren't actual coins or something), with Black Ops 2 icons/pictures on them, such as the Dragonfire, Skull, etc. Now, only one of the coins contains a code, and that code has to be redeemed online, NOT on PSN. (You can also tell because there are more than 12 characters, and PSN codes are 12.) One of the papers in the Steelbook case tells you what website you have to redeem it on. The code contains the Camo , Playercards, and Soundtrack. You will need an ELITE account to redeem it though. Once you create an account/sign in, you'll be asked to enter the code and the content will be given to you.

The Steelbook contains the game (obviously) and features two different covers. One side (the front) is an alternate artwork to the Standard Edition cover, and the other side (the back) contains a Zombie-themed background featuring Misty (female) holding a shotgun and a skull. Inside the Steelbook, you will find vouchers for the Nuketown Zombies, Nuktown 2025, Themes, and Challenge Coin redemption instructions.

I'm not entirely sure whether $180 is reasonable price or not, but that's your judgement. If you want the Quadrotor and/or Box as collectibles, then sure, go ahead and buy it. If you don't want to spend the extra $100+, then get a Standard or Hardened Edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Provides good coverage, November 18, 2012
The guide does a nice job covering the Campaign, Multiplayer, and the Zombies. The guide is 311 pages, which is only about 40 pages shorter than the Modern Warfare 3 strategy guide.

The Campaign section is 144 page, since it covers all the endings, intel, strike force missions, the weapons that you will encounter in the Campaign, and more. Yes, this guide includes all the ways you can branch the story. For instance, complete event "A" and fail event "b" and you will get result "C".

The Multiplayer section is about 156 pages, which includes coverage for all the maps, game modes, weapons, and more. Interestingly, this section includes tips from pros like Ernest Le, OpTic NaDeSHot, and TmarTn.

The Zombies section is only 12 pages, but it does provide a decent amount of coverage on the TranZit, Survival, and Grief modes. However, while the guide includes a map of TranZit, it does NOT include coverage on the Tower of Babble easter egg, perk locations, buildables' parts locations, teddy bear locations (for Hidden Song), or how Zombies works/is played (Like, scoring, basic tips, etc.) or any other hidden easter eggs that TranZit may hold. Oh well, more of a challenge that way I suppose. It also does not include the weapons you can earn from the Mystery Box. Simply put, this covers very little about Zombies/Green Run.

Now what makes this guide different from the paperback version? Well, this version has a hardbound cover with the "deus" (2) logo on the front and the Black Ops skull logo on the back. Second, the guide comes with a small journal that you can use to take notes in. The journal has the same cover design as the strategy guide.

If you want tips on the Multiplayer and Intel (Campaign) locations, or simply want to learn a few tricks on Zombies, then pick this guide up.

PSP Extended Life Battery Kit
PSP Extended Life Battery Kit

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Extended Gaming Sessions, or just for a Backup/Replacement, September 15, 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This battery is ideal if you either need to replace your older 1200mAh battery or if you want to extend your gaming sessions, like if you're on the road or something.

The reason I bought this battery was because the 1200 mAh battery (to me), didn't have a long enough battery life. The 1200 mAh battery (on a full charge) can last about 5-7 hours, which is okay I suppose, but I wanted something that can last me a long time without having to worry about charging. This battery has 2200 mAh, which means the battery (on a full charge) can last about 9-13 hours.

Because this battery has 2200 mAh, it's also a bigger battery, and the standard Battery Case that comes with the PSP will not fit/work, so it comes with two cases: Black and Silver. Because I have a white PSP, I (personally) use the Silver case. If you have a black PSP, then you'll be okay since the Black cover will match the PSP. If you have a different color PSP, such as blue or red, then choosing between the color cases may be a little harder for you.

Overall, if you need something that'll last you a long time, get this battery. If you're content with the 1200 mAh battery, then don't worry about purchasing this.
