Okay, so we decided that we didn’t want to spend $20-60 for a wii game.  We research, and come across tons of these so-called free wii download sites.  These are the sites you pay a one time fee for, and they boast having all the recent wii games available for download. After about a month or so, we decide to take a plunge.  Why not?  They offer a money back guarantee.

Now, I cannot speak for all these sites, but this one we joined is a total scam.  We get on there only to find that they provide links to stuff you can already get free on the web.  And their games?  A bunch of  crap disguised as torrent files you can also find for free online.  Were any of these new games on there?  Not one.  In fact, I did a search for Mario Kart and guess what I got?  “NO RESULTS FOUND”.  Did that to me several times for game titles that are very popular, and in fact, were shown on their home page.   Most of their links gave us a FILE NOT FOUND, and there was no place to get in touch with them.  They do have a guest user email contact form, but they never responded to an inquiry I made.

This burns me up.  Now granted, I had a feeling that it was too good to be true, and certainly it was.  But what really gets me is — when you try and research these sites, you see the same ones over and over again promoting what they believe are, the “best three”.  Well, perhaps they are, but this left such a sour taste in my mouth, I don’t even want to know if they are legit or not.

Oh – and what was even MORE interesting is — I click on a link in there that said DOWNLOAD 3, and guess what I found?  A big advertisement telling me I just got scammed and I should get my money back.  Ugh.  Needless to say, we requested a refund from PayPal immediately.

My word to anyone interested in these sites?  Don’t waste your money.  If you don’t mind throwing $40 away, throw it my way instead.  I’ll get you a legit wii game instead from GameStop or something.

Lesson learned.
