... ~Impossible~ It is near a miracle to find some one of the same ability as you on games.com. Unless you are a master of your game of choice you will always get beaten badly by the opposition. Example - Scrabble: While playing my usual game against some one of a higher ranking they used ... Read review

Advantages~

Disadvantages~

"...to play~ Either the people at Games.com have payed out bucket loads of money for the licenses for the games that are available on the site or they will soon be paying out loads for a lawsuit. They have all the major board games; legends like Monopoly and Clue (or Cluedo as it is called over here) as well as the more modern ones like Sorry and Upwords. And these are only the board games. ~Coin 'em ups~ Many of you will jump at the chance to ..." Read review

This is just one of the many online versions of games available to play at www.games.com I stumbled on this site by accident one day a couple of months back and was amazed at the broad variety of things there to keep you amused.

small online games site

Advantagescommunity system is ok, nice idea, fast loading

Disadvantagespoor selection of games, some really rubbish games

"...idea of this site but games.com have not executed their idea well, more games are needed and some more real fun games are needed. The CD ROM games section needs some serious working on, it needs bringing up to date with games like unreal tournament, half life, quake III, red alert 2 etc. The community system actually works quite well but still doesn't make the site more than disspointing. I have some more fun online games on my website but seen ..." Read review

Can I wait to play

AdvantagesColourfully designed games layouts

DisadvantagesLots of bugs in their software make it hard to get into.

"I became interested in this site after spotting my children on it one evening. It's a games site with many games including old classics such as Monopoly, Sorry, Yhatzee and arcade games like Asteroids. The site has experienced some difficulties over the last few months with it being impossible to access on occasions but improvements are promised for late Summer/Autumn. Each game has a seperate lobby with a chat room element for those who wish ..." Read review
