Solicitor on the Game Review with images

AdvantagesGreat layout and lots of product information making it easy for non-gamers

DisadvantagesPrices tend to be higher and a rubbish loyalty scheme

"...cannot fail to see that game.co.uk is the same as GAME on the highstreet. That familiar purple branding is there to lure us into the familiar territory. I find the website very easy to use, even as someone who knows next to nothing about gaming. Games are split into types according to which platform they are played on and then they are split according to type (platform, driving, FPS and so on). As a non-gamer I find this much easier than being ..." Read review

game.co.uk

AdvantagesChoice between brand new and second hand, Reward Card loyalty, free delivery

DisadvantagesExpensive lifestyle choice

"...of playstation two Games from Game.co.uk in the past I was very pleased and satisfied with the Delivery time taken. There is also a Help topics section which I find good to read through this. I thought the Question and Answer sections good as they contained the companies' privacy statement, Secure Shopping, Payment options, Delivery times and so on. Though the useful part of this is that clicking on one of these sections just produces a set of ..." Read review

NO SCRATCHES ON MY DISC Review with images

AdvantagesDelivery and reward card

DisadvantagesPrice and arrogance

"...been operating under the new GAME.co.uk for quite some time now, representative of the growth of the brand. As far as specialist franchises go, there is absolutely no competition, as Blockbuster Inc. sold the Gamestation retail chain to GAME in 2007 for a reported £75 million. Whilst Gamestation still operates under its name, including having its own website, you must remember that where ever you go your money is still going to the same place. You ..." Read review

"This review is focuses on game.co.uk, an online gaming, and gaming accessories website, that allows people to purchase games online, with it then later being delivered a couple of working days later. Now ive used game.oc.uk several times, infact in 2007, I would say ive spent roughly £350 purchasing items from their website, so I guess I seem to have some experience regarding what the company has to offer, the layout of the website, customer service, ..."

GAME Store - Not quite as good as GameStation

AdvantagesFriendly Staff

DisadvantagesRRP Prices, No Offers, No old games, Low Trade In Prices

"Since I did a GameStation Store review, I thought it would be only fair that I do a Game Store review, since they are the UK’s two biggest retailers specialising in console and computer games. To start off I’ve got to say that I don’t feel as ‘close’ with Game as I do with GameStation because I didn’t really warm to Game’s Style and pricing, which I will discuss a little further in. I will also be doing a bit of Game vs. GameStation in this review ..." Read review

GAME.co.uk - Great site for gamers Review with images

AdvantagesEasy to use and has some great offers

DisadvantagesSometimes has high prices

"...★== At first glance at the GAME.co.uk I immediately feel that the websites home page isn't as good and as professional looking as other sites such as play.com. It has a pretty simple layout with all console navigation bars laid out down the left hand side, these consoles are as followed: • DS • Game Boy Advance • GameCube • PC Games • PlayStation 2 • PlayStation 3 • PSP • Wii • Xbox ..."

Game. They don't play around with delivery times.

AdvantagesFast delivery. Easy to navigate the site.

DisadvantagesHard to find a list of pre-owned games that are in stock.

"I have shopped a number of times in Game in the highstreet but this time, I decided to try their website. The site is fairly clear, easy to locate what you want (most of the time) and before long I was browsing their games. They offer pre-owned and new games and I was looking to see if there were any bargains to add to my order. This is the first failing in the website. There are plenty of pre-owned games at good prices in the categories and ..." Read review

Game.co.uk

AdvantagesGood deals - Reward points - Site design/ease of use

DisadvantagesQuite expensive - Slow delivery

"...this is sent out weekly. Overall game.co.uk is a very good site - the experience is enhanced though if you have an account and reward card - as you can earn money off games - be entered into competions - write reviews - not have to enter delivery details every time - and create wishlists. Things that would make the site better; More preorders. More frequent deals. Quicker deliveries Better packaging Overall though I must reccommend ..." Read review

Wait until they get the bugs out of their website

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesBuggy site, terrible customer service

"Update: since my last review of game.co.uk a month ago (Give or take) it has become apparent that although game have begun to return to their normal behavior of good games, good prices and a good customer service, there are still a few problems with there new site for example they have fixed all apparent and major glitches but at this time there customer services are still behind on emails and catching up with phone calls and there are still a few ..."

No Hassle gaming

Advantageseasy to purchase, game reward system, fast delivery

Disadvantagesnot the cheapest around

"...What i really like about GAME.co.uk is that it usually lists all the `coming soon' games with its release date on. That gives me an idea which games are going to be released soon and i will go away and read reviews in magazines or online to see whether the game is actually worth going for. You might say that all websites have these features but i found that GAME usually have the full lists which might be missing in some other websites. It has a ..." Read review

I'll visit this website aGAME.

AdvantagesVery well set up

DisadvantagesPrices a little high

"...there is a section of GAME.co.uk that allows you to put an advert for them on your page and recieve commission in return. This is becoming quite popular with most websites now. ==Summary== Overall this website is one of the best i have experienced. It is fast, attractive and very simple to use. The prices aren't the best but they could be a lot worse. The features are useful for anyone who can't or doesn't want to set up an account as you can ..." Read review
