As much of these reviews and forums chats about UK game rental go, everyone has been at a loss since lovefilm and blockbusters stopped games rental.
I like many other found Boomerang Rentals to be an alternative to these major leading game rental providers. I think my mistake was hoping they would live up to the previous companies set expectations.
The free trial and range of new release games was ok, dispatch time was ok, at times longer than I had wanted (5+ days on a bad week) for a gamer who plays games everyday i need to get them like a letter within 2-3 max which is the norm right? unfortunately boomerang failed on this aspect most of the time.
the back catalogue was non existent, i trophy hunt and trying to get back catalogue games was incredibly hard. Not to mention new release games also werent coming to me fast, i always was settling for the mid range mediocre games which i kinda wanted but not REALLY wanted.
on the look out for new alternatives as Boomerang CS and overall service didnt sit well with me.
Ive come across a few promising game rental services recently. Most promising being Rent Game (www.rent-game.com) who look great, cool and modern design with an array of titles for both playstation formats and xbox formats, waiting on a few reviews, but very decently priced at only £9.99 a month for 1 disc at a time, unlimited returns.
Will test them out and see how if they stand up to gamer expectations!
