GameFly Review

gamefly.com screenshot GameFly.com... The king of video game rental sites. Informative game reviews, console support, and an endless list of features has helped solidify GameFly's spot of the top of the rental services. A lot of relationships will be put in jeopardy when the boyfriend is forced to chose between the game or the girl. With a service like this, it might be wise for GameFly to branch out into relationship counseling.

Gamerang Review

gamerang.com video game rental service screenshot Gamerang.com was a very pleasant surprise. The site makes one of the boldest statements of originality we've ever seen by operating four distribution centers. That's three more than most video game rental websites. This means over half of the United States can get the games they rent the very next day. How cool is that? If you only visit one game rental site in your life Gamerang.com should be it.

GamezNflix Review

gameznflix.com screenshot How do you please one family that has two movie buffs, three avid gamers, and a dog? Enter GamezNflix. This site has done what many others have tried and failed to do -- offer, both, DVD and video game rentals. Now the parents AND the kids can be happy. GamezNflix even offers an eight video game/DVD combination package. And with three distribution centers you'll get the movies and games you want much quicker. three and half stars Consoles: [PS2, Xbox, Gamecube, PSone]

GPlay Review

gplay.com screenshotDon't expect a lot of frills from GPlay.com. They're there to do one thing and that's to provide you with the best site to rent video games online. GPlay is simplistic in every sense of the word -- but that's not necessarily a bad thing. 56K users will appreciate their fast-loading site. First time users will love their easy-to-use queue system. And they were even kind enough to throw in twelve free issues of EGM, FHM, or Sync magazine. four stars Consoles: [PS2, Xbox, Gamecube, GBA, DS, PSP]

NumbThumb Review

numbthumb.com screenshot Is it just me, or do a lot of video game rental sites try to look like crap. It's almost like they intentionally suck just for kicks and giggles. We'll, anyway... NumbThumb does provide members with some unique features like their Priority Points program. Also, Texas, and nearby residents will benefit from shorter shipping times. NumbThumb.com might be for if you can ignore their embarrassingly low number of video game titles. three and half stars Consoles: [PS2, Xbox, Gamecube, GBA]

RedOctane< Review

redoctane.com screenshot RedOctane is another site that suffers from a poor first impression. There's just nothing there to tell it apart from the other video game rental sites. However, RedOctane does manage to display some redeeming qualities. One of them being their 5 game rental plan. Die-hard gamers will love this feature. But remember, there's always a ying to a yang... And in this case the yang is the lack of a free trial. If you wondered why RedOctane only got three stars here's your reason. three stars Consoles: [PS2, Xbox, Gamecube, Dreamcast, Anime DVDs]

RentZero Review

rentzero.com screenshot To start, Rentzero's site design sucks big-time. Helen Keller would have produced a more noteworthy website. Moreover, they have one of the smallest selection of titles in the video game rental industry. But in face of their shortcomings, Rentzero managed to keep a couple o' aces up their sleeves. One being their 14-day free trial. Keep in mind most sites only offer 10. Plus, Rentzero is the only site to ship the manual with the game. three stars Consoles: [PS2, Xbox, Gamecube]
