2.0 out of 5 stars Great Gameplay Bogged Down with Dialogue, January 17, 2012
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
The gameplay for this game is extremely creative and fun, but I estimate that about 60% of this game is cutscenes where you have to read a bunch of text. Even when you try and speed through the dialogue it still overwhelms the game. The extreme prevalence of cheesy text dialogue completely ruins this game for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great dub/jazz sound, January 5, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sonatas en Dub (MP3 Music)
I was searching Amazon for music and this little gem popped up. von Daler & Low Pressure can best be compared to Gotan Project; lots of great gypsy-feeling jazzy dub numbers on this album. Check out Real Love featuring the now-deceased Natasja. Definitely worth the $7 download!

5.0 out of 5 stars Accurate and easy to use, October 17, 2009
My wife and I used this book while we lived in Anchorage, AK and found it to be very accurate and helpful. Anchorage has an extensive network of trails, allowing bicyclists to get most anywhere in the city while avoiding most major roads. This book guided my wife and I to a high comfort level with all of the trails in Anchorage. Of course, it also covers trails outside of the city limits and we did a few of those as well. The book is very helpful in planning a fun day out of town, or a path to work or school.

3.0 out of 5 stars At times clever, at others clunky, October 17, 2009
Moments in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will make you chuckle, or even laugh, to yourself. The idea is definitely amusing and fun, but the novelty wears thin towards the middle and into the end of the book. There are definitely some great quotes in the book, but at times it seems like Seth Grahame-Smith is adding input only because he feels as if it has been too long since he last added something clever. If you are already a fan of the book, and are familiar with the story, the addition of zombies is fun. If you are not familiar with the story, I wouldn't recommend starting here. I personally enjoyed most of the zombie bits early on, but found the constant references to the deadly arts, the Orient, dojos, etc. to be tiring by about 3/4 through the book. All in all, it was a neat concept that probably could have been executed better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic customizable fun, October 17, 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This game is such a blast! The 80's theme made me buy this one over others in the series, and keeps me entertained even if the gameplay is lulling for the moment. The best thing about the PC version of this game is how easy it is to customize various elements of the game. I've enjoyed downloading numerous skins for the main character, often playing as The Joker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing flavors, easy recipes, October 12, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My wife and I own a few cookbooks, and this one is by far the most interesting recipe after recipe. Bobbie Hinman finds dishes from around the world and alters them by substituting ingredients that are easier for westerners to come by than some of the traditional ingredients are. In addition, she switches out high fat, high cholesterol ingredients for ones that are much more healthy without compromising depth of flavor. I just ordered her other book, Easy Low-Fat Favorites, and am awaiting it anxiously. Happy cooking!
