Dear All,

How do i get a refund for quite frankly the buggiest game i have ever played, i am forever thinking ill give this game a second chance and it lets me down once again.

Just played a session and once again it doesn't seem to be able to realise that i am in 6th and says im in 12th, audio glitches do seem better but for a game to be so broken at release is quite frankly appalling.

I have emailed asking for a refund and no one has even come back to me, is there a way i can return this game that is only usable as a drinks coaster.

Regards

Dastrix

Strange question.

You go back to the place you purchased it from.

Same as anything else you might buy, buy a faulty LG TV from Amazon, go back to Amazon for a refund, not LGs forum.

Of course, if you just want to have a whinge and prove a point, you might well go to LGs forum, won't get you a refund though.

You want a refund for f1 2015 on the pcars forum? Strange.

He's just rejoined from a ban to try to make a scene.

It's been a very quiet weekend thus far. I had wondered if our resident fringe members had abandoned us.

The place i bought the item from have done their bit, the problem i have is with the development of quite frankly a game that is not worth the 40 quid it cost.

Just btw. if Ian is giving out refunds for no reason, I'd like to get one for Sacred 1(I'm a bit late on that one I know), unplayable in v1.0 and even bug free it was still a let down as it stepped into the ring as a D2 killer... what it wasn't.

It seems to me, with these ridiculous refund requests, that some people just don't know how to operate in normal society.

Caveat Emptor. Buyer beware. That means it's up to you to research your purchases and be a smart consumer. It's not SMS's, Bandai, or Microsoft's (or Sony's) fault you laid your money down for a product and eventually decided you're not happy with it. It's your fault as a consumer. You didn't educate yourself before you threw your money away, or you had unrealistic expectations in the first place.

Ian and SMS have been generous and given refunds before, but if I were them, I'd say "Tough luck, man. Read a review or two before you pull the trigger next time."

Or go to the retailer where you purchased the game and get your refund, that is, if you are still within their stated return period. If not, trade it in. If it's digital, well, tough luck bucko. I bought the digital download of that horrible Wolfenstein game months ago because I was bored, played through once, and hung it up. I'm not sending emails and visiting forums begging for a refund because it was my own dumb fault I bought it in the first place. Lesson learned, life goes on.

In our world, she'd be thrown out, but go around the corner and metaphorically put on a blonde wig and come back with the same complaint, and on and on...

Can I have a refund for RacePro on my Xbox360? i haven't touched it in a few years so it's basically "like new"....if you're going to offer any other refunds I'm sure I have some other items as well.....come to think of it...I would like a refund on the latest dlc from PCars...it's not an issue with the dlc, it's just that I find myself not driving those cars as much as I anticipated. ;)

You've already got it if the retailer has done their bit.

You're trolling is way below par today, can you try a bit harder, I'm bored waiting for benchmarks to complete.

Agreed, poor effort. No refutation of the rejoin allegation, no yelling just below the threshold of acceptance.... All in all, 4 out of 10.

On the positive front I've only gone and fixed my dk2/980Ti problem and performance is through the damn roof. And proved all the nonsense about cpu speed and CPUs and motherboards don't make any significance in gaming :) i reckon 30+ fps in.the rift is pretty significant for just a motherboard.


I might give a refund if he asks nicely:) I'm in that good a mood.

By the way Ian, i think it's worth you guys taking a look and bearing in mind for spec recommendations?

Only had a quick scan but I'll bet you won't get the support you get here. Codemasters will release one patch and then abandon it, as with 2010 (which was the best one imo) through to 2012 at which point I stopped buying them.

Supposed to rain tomorrow..... Project CARS at the ready.

Replaced my motherboard.

I did add it to the original problem thread and create a thread saying that and pointing to it.

But it wasn't a loon thread or asking about xbox patches so i don't think it's been seen yet :)

Absolutely transformed the game, better than it was prior to the patch with all settings on high or ultra.
