Lastminute has closed down its video game rental site as of late 2008; this review is kept as it was for posterity.
Lastminute.com games is a poorly rendered powered by site of Swapgame. This has advantages in that their range of titles is great, but as with most affiliate sites, the original is best - not just in poor site design, but often in quality of service, yet at the same price. There's simply no good reason why we can imagine someone preferring the poorer lastminute alternative to the excellent Swapgame original.
Lastminute.com do offer DVD rentals but not their games rental packages - only as a separate subscription, presumably because they use their affiliate Lovefilm to offer DVDs.
We recommend that if if anything about Lastminute.com tempts you and its the games you're after go with Swapgame - and if you would like films too then you may as well go with Lovefilm.
Prices: Lastminute.com games price packages are actually more expensive than their parent Swapgame site: unlimited games per month, two-at-a-time (£14.99).
