Customer Review: razor replacement
Logitech's Gaming Optical Mouse is what I chose to replace my worn down optical razor mouse from two years ago. It doesn't have as many side buttons as the razor did, but it was very rare for me to use all the buttons. Leaning around corners with this mouse is taking a bit to get used to doing. For the slightly discounted price I got this mouse for I am very pleased with how it does in 1st person shooters.
Customer Review: Great gaming mouse
Very pleased with this product. Easy to use, plug & play setup. Kind of big for my hand but oh well. I use it to play World of Warcraft & I haven't had any problems with it at all. The side thumb buttons are very convenient to keybind.

Good intel and proper gear are the keys to victory. With the Logitech G15 keyboard, you get both. Now you can easily discover on which server your friends are playing Battlefield 2142, be notified when your World of Warcraft battleground becomes available and know exactly who's talking in Ventrilo with the Logitech G15 keyboard's exclusive GamePanel LCD. You can also create useful macros on the fly that play back with a single press of one of the six G keys. As every key features illuminated characters, with three levels of brightness, you can keep playing late into the night.
Customer Review: FAIL!
Keyboard was ok for about a year, but then 2 of the keys stopped working, TAB and G11 don't work anymore. Pwnd a lot of n00bs with it, but this board is worthless now. Most keyboards last 3 to 5 years easy, and since this keyboard is "teh gey" after one year I just can't recommend buying it.
I will say my Logitech G5 laser mouse still pwns, but just can't recommend the keyboard. Get a different brand. Peace, and keep gaming!
Customer Review: Very Good For Gaming !
Hey if you are a true gamer then this is the keyboard for you my friend.I dominate at the Lan Party each sunday ! Also i can now play at night easy with this , and the LCD is very cool when playing games that are compatible with it because it gives you live stats. make sure you buy this with the Logitech G5 gaming mouse they make a great team . But if you are not a gamer this is not for you !

Pinball Hall of Fame includes 10 classic Williams' pinball tables from the '70s, '80s and '90s! Features unlockable bonus extra game features that the player can earn throughout the game, editable table controls such as Tilt, custom pinballs, more balls per play, table art gallery, 4-player multiplayer mode and much more!
Customer Review: ABSOLUTELY amazing !!! You get more than what you pay for !!!
Being a 1980-1990's pinball aficionado, I've played them all in the arcades. Quarter after quarter, replay after replay... I pride myself having spent many hours on pinball for mere dollars. I've spent a good deal of my college years making my entertainment value stretch.
However, the main thing lacking in home-versions of pinball games (either on computer platform or gaming consoles) is the "pinball wizard" feeling from merely pushing buttons and watching the balls bounce in uncontrollable patterns.
"Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection" is hands-down an exception to the disappointment I'm used to. Far superior to any pinball simulator I've EVER played, this adaptation is so close to the real thing, it's incredible. The biggest drawback from many home-version pinball games is the upright "flippers-at-your-hands" feeling. Astoundingly, with Pinball HOF, I get the feeling that I'm at a real arcade as I "bump" the machines using my Wii remotes.
Equally unbelievable and impressive are the accurate depictions of the graphics and sounds from EACH machine. SVG Distribution did such a fantastic job recreating the Wii version that it's hard to differentiate the software from the original machine. The older machines (i.e. Jive Time) have that classic relaxed pinball-saloon feel to them; however, the newer machines (i.e. Funhouse, Whirlwind, Taxi) give you the sensation of nudging the ball with your body movements. I don't know if what I'm trying to say is clear, but to pinball enthusiasts, you'll know what I mean by moving the ball "not with the flippers, but your body."
If SVG were to release another Pinball Hall of Fame (Gottlieb? Stern?), I'd buy it in a heartbeat. Unfortunately, pinball is undergoing a demise in popularity these days. I don't know why. A pinball wizard could be easily entertained for long periods of time dropping only a few coins. Hmmm... must be today's economy that's driving pinball production down.
Anyway, I can't say enough good things about this game. It has been keeping me entertained to the point that I haven't even played Super Mario Kart yet, a game that I bought the same day as Pinball HOF. That's my $.02... which will only buy .08 gallons of gas.
Customer Review: Perfect for gift giving
I got this for my guy but now I'm playing it all the time. OMG, its just like the real thing but better! This is a must for all game lovers. So much better than I thought it was going to be.

Customer Review: As Close to Perfect as a Game Can Get
A great game gets even better. Add to it the fact that you can mod-out features many features you don't like with very basic knowledge of XML, and that the developers actually provide C++ source code for the game so that professional programmers can rewrite the game themselves, and you have a recipe for the best. Even my non-gamer friends have fallen in love with it, especially girlfriend types once they realize you can play cooperative team games on a LAN.
One word of warning: this game is hard at first, especially if you have never played anything similar. It does get easier, though.
Customer Review: A major update, could be called Civ 4.5
This is not a mere expansion pack but a major update to a fun but flawed game. It is simply much more polished and better thought out than the original. It also comes with tons of great mods. Overall the value is excellent. My only complaint is that the difficulty level seems to have gone up a notch as well, but maybe I am just not very good at this game.

Bored, bored, bored. That's how young Keith feels about being stranded at the time-worn Mountain View Inn with his parents. Then he meets Ralph, an equally stir-crazy mouse who quickly befriends Keith and begs to ride Keith's toy motorcycle. Soon Ralph masters the tiny two-wheeler and "rrroom-zzzooms" through the hotel hallways, dodging four-legged predators, adults, and the occasional vacuum; he even risks his furry skin to help Keith recover from a high fever. Based on Beverly Cleary's famous children's novel of the same name, this 42-minute video combines live-action talent (including Ray Walston as the wise bellhop) and award-winning stop-motion animation. While the dated look of the TV movie may not appeal to kids who prefer the heart-pumping action of computer-generated favorites such as Small Soldiers, its tame plot and relatively slow pace make The Mouse and the Motorcycle a healthy choice for families with 3- to 7-year-olds. Followed by an even popular sequel, Runaway Ralph. --Liane Thomas
Customer Review: Fantastic for kids -- and probably adults too!
I watched this movie many times as a kid (for some reason, it was on early Saturday mornings a bunch of times), and I *loved* it. I just remembered it now for some reason, and had to look it up! It's a classic, and I highly recommend it.
Customer Review: Mouse and the Motorcycle
I saw this movie as a child in the ABC Specials too... now my 7 year old just finished reading the book and when I told him I saw the movie he couldn't wait to see it too! We looked all over for the DVD since I do not own a VCR but we can not find it on DVD anywhere, he was disappointed but i don't want to buy a VCR just for this one movie! If anyone knows if there is a DVD version out there let us know!!!! Please.

Rayman Raving Rabbids brings you back to the world of Rayman, just as it's being threatened by demonic rabbits! With the help of magical creatures, Rayman must battle to save his world from the bunnies. It's a great way for Rayman to punch his way onto a next-gen platforms!
Customer Review: Fun game full of imagination
My kids LOVE this game! It is full of funny little things to do, like shooting toilet plungers, throwing cows and that kind of stuff - who comes up with this stuff (very funny). It is a game that is for any age, the younger ones get a kick out of seeing what they have to do and the older ones have a challenge trying to get through everything. I wasn't sure what I would think of this game but my girls (8 and 14) really enjoy it..
Customer Review: I can't believe how much fun this game is!!!
when the wii first came out, it was awesome, playing wii sports was very fun but, well after a while it gets burried, but then came rayman raving rabbids, it is I think the reason the wii exists, it is crazy as you couldn't imagine, the games make no sense at all!!! it has no logic, what they ask you to do in the minigames is totally "out of order" I mean, "rabbids can't close the bathroom doors" you have to close the doors for them, and the doors just won't stop opening!
I tell you this game is crazy, from beginning to end, you won't regret it
