This review is from: The Last of Us
Pros: Great storyline, well written dialog, great characters. Scenery is beautiful, combat and crafting system is easy to learn, quick to pick up.
Cons: Gameplay at times becomes slightly repetitive in the late stages of the game; patterns start to form (i.e solve a puzzle, then combat, repeat); There are parts that can be frustrating, if you aren't skilled at stealth or tactical positioning. The save function doesn't allow you to save an exact point, and works exactly as the autosave function, so if you run into a difficult part, and try to manually save your game at a specific point, it will disregard this save and load the last checkpoint instead.
Other Thoughts: Overall this game was worth all the hype and attention it has received since launch. I was satisfied with my experience, albeit a bit annoyed with how frequently I died, and how unforgiving the save mechanism was. Your mileage may vary, however. But you'll never know until you dive right in.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: XIGMATEK Secure II USD03 2.5" & 3.5" Black SATA USB 3.0 External Docking Station
Pros: As previously stated, this is a great choice for docking station that supports USB 3.0, that is also on the cheap. Looks great, fairly easy setup.
Cons: While this product is for the most part flawless, the biggest problem I found with it, and ultimately the problem that led to it being broken, is the amount of precision required to appropriately seat the drive on the connector. There is no restrictive guides inside the chassis for normal form factor drives, which means if you are not precise, and come in at a slight angle, you risk damaging the port.
This happened to me, with next to zero applied force. Connector inside just snapped, and now the dock understandably does not work.
Beware: This item is a great deal, but if you're not careful, you'll end up with a brick.
Other Thoughts: I'm hoping that the warranty/return policy will cover this, although I seriously doubt that it will.READ FULL REVIEW
