Great sites that offer video game rentals don't come along often. However, IntoTheGame is showing all the right signs of a successful company with staying power. We were very impressed with their customer service support. Their video game rental plans also deserve a hard look. Heck, the even support classic consoles like the Dreamcast and Sega CD! Their tell-a-friend features gives you money when you refer a member, and a 21-day free trial sets IntoTheGame apart from every other site out there. Bottom line: If you're into heavy gaming, but still want competitive prices, then is the site for you.

IntoTheGame makes one heckuva first impression. Their Flash intro on the homepage is sure to get your attention. It's a welcomed change in the world of video game rental sites. made a noticable effort to make sure we felt welcomed. Customer service is very responsive... Two thumbs up! IntoTheGame provides a service that is definitely worth its weight in gold.

The Basics:

As typical with video game rental sites, there are no late fees and no due dates. You can keep the games out for as long as you like. You're good as long as you pay your bill on time. .

One of the most noteworthy aspects of is the large selection of classic consoles they support. Not only do they carry games for the PSOne and Dreamcast, they offer Sega Saturn, Sega CD, and Sega Genesis games -- talk about thinking outside the box.

IntoTheGame also has a simple, user-friendly rental queue which they call "Your Playlist." Using this feature is as simple as browsing through the games and clicking a link to add them to your queue. You can change the priority of the games in Your Playlist and delete some you don't want

Shipping Info: has one of the shortest turnaround times for any online video game rental site. However, it's not unreasonable to expect games to take up to five days to reach members on the East Coast. IntoTheGame ships from California so those on the West Coast will be benefit the most from this site as far as shipping times are concerned.


We've pretty much reached the conclusion that IntoTheGame is one of the most distinguished video game rental sites on the Internet today. One reason this is so lies largely in the fact that IntoTheGame is quick to offer innovative and unique features. For example, the Tell-A-Friend feature that allows memebers to earn a buck for every member the refer.

Thumbs Up:

Their Tell-a-Friend feature which allows members to earn money for their referrals; The 21-day free trial is tops in the industry; Competitive prices that cater to heavy gamers; excellent customer service.

Thumbs Down:

As much as we like the homepage, the meat of the site could be designed for easier navigation.

Who Would Benefit From This?

IntoTheGame pratically rolls out the red carpet for the serious gamers who want a lot of games without having to shell out large wads of cash. Their new, 1 game ($12.95) plan is the lowest rental rate we've seen so even novice users who want to get their feet wet before jumping in can find something useful.
