    Played it for about 20 minutes last night, it SEEMS OK, but nothing spectacular YET.

    The one thing I have noticed though, is the main character moves like Cornelius from Planet Of The Apes!!!

    They do if you ask for your money back, BUT if you say

    'My g/friend bought me this and I already have it, can I swap it for something else please' they usually just do it. And if they do not, ring their head office, and they authoriose it for you!!

    You know Spidermanalf. I've just read your other post advising someone else with a PS2 to buy another one from Asda , put their old bust up PS2 in the box and take it back for a refund.

    Now I'm not against getting back a little bit back here and there but I find it a little ironic that you put your profession down as customer services!

    There is a certain irony there, BUT it means I have to know people statatory rights inside out, and also know other peoples returns policies.

    Thats why I know what you can and cannot get away with, and where you can and cannot get away with it!!

    I was in Asda the other night and one of the customer returns desk staff was getting a row for not checking a Playstaion 2 that was returned, It seems the person who had returned it put a Yellow Pages into the PS2 box to it would weigh roughly the same.

    The memeber of staff did not open up the box to check the contents and gave the customer a full refund.... No xmas bonus for her then :)

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA true!!

    And you can get away with most things if you do it right!!!

    As I said earlier i work in cust services so I have to know everyones returns policies, as they say knowledge is power!!!

    And if that knowledge can get me free cinema tickets/games, even an Xbox (thats been the best one, that was 3 seperate things rolled into one!), then so be it!!!

    And just to let you know you can buy something from one shop, cheap, and taking it back to another shop unopened where it is more expensive and swapping it for something you want there!!!

    It takes a bit of research sometimes but it is possible!!
