Amazon Fire Stick Review

I have recently purchased an Amazon Fire Stick so that I can have everything all in one place such as Amazon Video, Netflix, BBC iPlayer, Music, Photos and so on, so on..

I am very impressed with how simple it is and how easy it is to setup – Amazon automatically link your account to the Fire Stick (you can ask them not to if it’s a gift) and it comes on instantly! Not forgetting that it’s just a USB stick that you simply plug into the power source and your tv and BOOM on it goes! Very simple.

At a bargain of £34.99, I would highly recommend the Amazon Fire Stick as it’s just simple, has all the content you need and you can even download third party apps onto it. Handy!

I feel that this product is definitely for all age ranges and is suitable for families too. It is jam packed with films and tv programmes, you can listen to your music on there, view your photos from the Amazon Cloud and you can even play games on here too (& purchase a gaming controller too, if needed).

It is very easy to navigate, personalise and find the correct films and shows that you want. If you can’t be bothered with the simply remote (which has a similar layout to the Apple TV Remote) then you can download the Amazon Fire App that lets you use your phone as a remote as a mouse, voice recognition and to type!

You need Star Wars Battlefront!

Are you a huge Star Wars fan? Or even just a general lover? Star Wars Battlefront is definitely the best video game for the season this year, hands down!
Star Wars Battlefront is the latest craze from EA which is an action game that is either first person or third. You can play as classic characters such as Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Leia, Boba Fett, Palpatine or even the man, Darth Vader himself!
It is seen as a reboot from previous Battlefront games, but the graphics and the recreation of scenes from the older games is just mindblowingly beautiful!

I jumped onto my Xbox One and headed to the store to download the Battlefront BETA straight after work in November and I was not disappointed from what I saw. This took my breath away instantly – from the fact that I could play as Emperor Palpatine to defeat the rebels in a VS match to riding a speeder bike through Endor or even driving AT-ATs and X-Wings.

I would personally say that this game is 90% Online Play to get the most out of the gaming experience, but they do have a few missions and lessons that you can play by yourself where you have to defeat Boba Fett and protect your pods.

Like I said at the beginning, if you love the original trilogy, you will probably fall in love with this game. Travel to Hoth, Endor, Tattooine and fulfil your Star Wars dreams in an instant! The detail that has been put into this game is incredible – although people sometimes describe this simply as a Call Of Duty-esqe, shooter game with a Star Wars front it is still so much more than that for any Star Wars fan.

Why wouldn’t you want to run up to people and fry them to pieces with a lightsaber or force choke them? Also, there is a great achievement that you receive, if you get hit by an Ewok which made me laugh more than anticipated..

Have any of you play this game or are getting it for christmas? I think that this is an immaculate game which I will not tire of easily! It is perfectly timed with the fully blown Star Wars hype at the moment with the upcoming movie and I would recommend this for all ages, as there is no blood whatsoever in this – all friendly ‘shoot and disappear’ action.

May The Force Be With You,
Zoe
