Even though gameguys don't always send the games on the top of my list, they have plenty of games to choose from and we get games all the time. Nine times out of ten they are in my top ten. I don't know what it used to cost us at the video shop but it was a lot, my kids always kept them longer than they should and I had to pay ridicules amounts to clear my membership.
We have been with Gameguys now for over 12 months and I know I don't have to worry about over dues anymore. They are always helpful if I have had any issues and would recommend them to anyone with kids like mine.(Game Junkies)
Finally we have found somewhere we can afford to rent the latest games
They dont always send the games on the top of my list
Waited 7 weeks for one of my ten top game picks and still never got one of them. Don't think they had any of the games,tried to contact Gamegays but they don't even have a phone number,should have been suspicious of any business that doesn't have a phone number.
Never got the new release games.
This company started off OK but lost the plot real quick. They seem to be a back yard job and after a long wait for our DVD's they were badly scratched. The turn around times are slow and the communication is not great. There are better companies providing the same service. We cancelled as did a friend of mine with simular issues.
They hire games and easy to use site.
Too expensive as product spends to much time in the post or is not being sent when they state.
I did utilise the free 15-day trial from Movie Guys, however didn't continue it as I found the dispatching too slow. The range of DVDs was pretty good, and their website was easy enough to use. I suppose from QLD to VIC and vice versa, there will be considerable delays involved; postage is one aspect, however it was hard to tell if there was further delays from the QLD-end at Movie Guys. It would be good to get a review from someone situated in NSW or QLD, just to find out if the dispatching is any quicker in those states.
Fair selection of movies. Easy to use / navigate website. Free trial useful.
I found the dispatching to be slow (however that is VIC to/from QLD so you cannot expect it to be extremely good).
Received an email telling customers that they are no longer servicing with DVDs They have sold all stock to Quickflix because they could not make a go of it and make it work. Now they are saying to stay with them if you a gaming customer as they will still service. I find that hard to beleive. They could not cut it with DVD and they will make it work with a -double the price product- I think not. You may look at the site but I know as a past customer that what they show they have instock - they do NOT - I have never ever ever received any of my top 5 requests. Now I know why....... BACK YARD JOB ...... good bye and NO GOOD LUCK from this unhappy loyal customer.
Very nice site
Very poor service
Been a member with Movie guys for the past year..Found that membership packages were value for money..Especially being able to rent movies or games and didn't have to have them returned the next day. We will be staying with Game guys now that the movie side has been taken over by Quickflix..We always received at least 1 of our top 5 requests and we have even requested a game that they didn't have in stock and they even ordered one in for us..This service has saved my sons money, by not having to purchase the games..They get to play them to the end, with no thought of any late fees. I would recommend Game guys to anybody looking for an on line game rental company.
Great site, very easy to negotiate
They have just gotten rid of the dvds
Gameguys is perhaps the best online game rental service in Australia imho.
I have been with them with around two months and has never been disappointed, I have been on the 2 games plan per months which allowed me with a quick turnover to play around 17 games a month! Which came to about less than 2 bucks a game (compared to 7$ at my local blockbuster, hum hum)
Most of the games received were always on top of my request list, and I would sometimes receive a new game the day after its release date in stores.
Service is also very good and never...
We joined up when they had the free trial and have not looked back..Great customer service..Anytime they have not had a dvd title we have wanted, with just a quick email they order it in . All recent tv shows like Dexter and some of the Law and Order series. The kids love the choice of games and the fact that you can purchase the games at a greatly reduced rate.
The Movie Guys site is easy to negotiate, comprehensive games library and great prices.
Can't think of any
Our family joined 4 months ago and we have not looked back. We used to be joined up with our local video store but always found the game discs to be badly scratched and unplayable..We always get sent games from our top 5 requests.If you let them know on the site that you are returning something, they send a replacement out the same day because we live in QLD, the turn around time is very fast..The packages they have a real value for money, because there is no such thing as overnight rental like the video shops. The web site is so easy to use an...d they have every PS3 game i could ever want..To purchase these games would cost me a small fortune..Great service all round..Recommend to all. so easy to use the web site...Great looking site! They don't have movies
