Full Version Game Downloads - Watch Out for Scams!

Mar 12, 2008
Full version game downloads are sought after by every living game lover. Such a hobby is an expensive one. Everyone knows that. Each new release can easily cost you anything between $40 and $100. So when there are opportunities online for downloads that are either free or very cheap, people tend to thread carefully. After all, there have been reports of scams and so it is natural that people want to know how to sniff a scam out.

While some are apprehensive, thinking that all services for full version game downloads are scams, the truth is far from it. It is a misconception. There are genuine download sites that run a proper business supplying great titles at affordable prices. But that said, there are always some unscrupulous sites that are purely scams.

Some scam signs to look out for when finding full version game downloads online.

1. Free on registration with strings attached thereafter. There are sites that tell you that it is free on registration. Once you are signed up, you quickly realized that the number of games are so few and old that there is hardly anything worth your time. In order to access to the other new releases, you would have to pay.

2. The site advertises as free and it actually is. It may also claim it is 100% legal and protected from all the pop-ups, viruses, etc, and this is where the scam lies. Usually, these sites are the same notorious torrent websites where files are shared between users, and along with full version game downloads you also get hosts of spyware, adware and viruses in your PC. There are even more problems with these sites, and to top it all, they are NOT legal, though shamelessly claiming the opposite.

3. The site boasts of a huge game selection, yet doesn't allow you to see their catalog, and after you register (and in most cases pay for a subscription), you find out that the games you wanted are not available, or they are in a format that is incompatible with your portable player device.

We have also heard about stories where the full version game downloads are corrupted and incomplete. There are also others who have lousy experience with the platform offered by some services. Either they are too hard to use or there is no proper step-by-step guide to use them.

You can flee from these services by doing some homework prior to choosing a site for full version game downloads. Do it once and you can benefit for a long time. Read the forum and blog posts to hear what customers are saying about the services. Reviews are great places to start as well.
