Gamesfrenzy Game Rental Review

Visit Gamesfrenzy Site Gamesfrenzy are one of the original games rental sites dating to 2003, and their recent site revamp and massive inventory expansion show they remain one of the top choices. In 2009 they absorbed longtime rival Gametart, so unlike most companies they seem to have done well during the recession and look to be a good bet for the future.

Gamesfrenzy have excellent features like top ten charts, new releases, genre browsing, everything you'd expect with the exception of allowing members to review or rate individual games. They also sell off ex-rental games and you can purchase the game you are playing with the 'Keep It' option for 20-75% off the recommended retail price.

Unlike most companies, they also ship titles on Saturdays, which can mean quicker turnaround. Gamesfrenzy have a adequate catalogue of 1,530+ titles. This is lower than the top companies, but this is in large part becuase they dropped their limited support for the older Xbox and Gamecube. We noticed in 2008 Gamesfrenzy dramatically increased their inventories for the other consoles, an excellent sign which led us to raise their rankings. Gamers should really look at Gamesfrenzy's inventory for their particular machine(s), not the overall total.

On the downside, Gamesfrenzy don't offer manuals, but they do point to websites that have them online. Gamesfrenzy also don't offer a free trial, but instead offer a potentially superior 3 months for the price of two to new customers. They will normally get the first games rentals to new members within two working days.

 

Prices: Gamefrenzy's prices are industry standard for the one game plan, at £9.96, and among the UK's lowest for two at a time for £13.96. Unlike most other companies, these are priced by the week vice the month. Neither package puts a limit on the number of games you can rent in total per month.

Does what it says on the tin. Only complaint is you won't get new releases quick, so be prepared to surf the back catalogue for awhile. Still worth it if you have some patience.

Much improved service and website since they redid it a few months back. I was with Swapgame and Gamerstate previously, but now I'm sticking with these guys.
