Competition Monday - Win ShopTo Points



Welcome to Competition Monday, our new weekly competition which consists of a few ways to win. All prizes consist of the chance to win points for your account. Here is what you need to do to enter either or if you wish, both competitions.

Competition 1: Comment to Win

As you no doubt know by now, our comment to win competition gives you the chance to win a prize in exchange for posting comments using your ShopTo account.

We understand that sometimes it's easier just to leave a comment on Facebook or Twitter and continue the conversation over there. But we'd love it if you make use of our news site to comment, so this is why we love to give you all a little incentive - the chance to win 3000 points on your ShopTo account.

Each week we will look at all the comments we have received from you, our readers, and as a reward we'll be giving away 3000 points to the person who we feel has contributed the most, both in terms of comments and their contribution towards the discussions within our stories.

There are a few rules obviously. For instance, in order to qualify for the weekly prize you need to have left at least 10 comments across any of our stories within that week. These comments must also provide a certain level of contribution, i.e be on topic and be relevant to the story which you are commenting on.

Competition 2: Review of the Week

Adding to the competition above is review of the week competition.

The title explains it all really. Basically, all you need to do is choose a game to review and get writing. Once you are happy with your review then simply post it in the customer reviews section on the relevant product page. e.g if you are reviewing FIFA 13 then search for FIFA 13 on ShopTo.net and post your review under the customer review banner.

In order to make it easy for us to pick a winner please try to stick to around 500 words. Also, we are not really judging on spelling, paragraphs, punctuation and review length. So even if you have never written a review before and are not confident, then please try.

Once you have followed the simple instructions above then all you have to do is let us know in the comments field below what game you reviewed. We will then choose a winner based on our favourite review and post it up on the news site for everyone to see.

If you are chosen as the winner then you'll win a whopping 10,000 points for your ShopTo account.

That's it really.

We are looking forward to reading your reviews.

oooh, an interesting change. Review of the week huh? I love that idea. Time to find time to get my writing cap on.

yeah, I'd like the points too! my english writing and grammar isn't my strongest suit but I'll be sure try to bash out a few reviews of my recent purchases.

Well in. May not fully agree with it in terms of needing a block button, but enjoyed your review. Think a lot of games would be so much better with reviews like that.

Pyroloveridge's avatar
Thanks! i thought it would have been a nice addition, mainly for newbies tbh i certainly could have done with it on some of the VR missions (7&18)
Pyroloveridge 4 years ago
DynamiteWhyte's avatar
No problem :) I think with a block it'd be too easy to just hold it while people barrage you and you wait till they've finished their combo to just attack then. I haven't done any VR missions, I didn't unlock that many! Worth giving them a go I take it?

Pretty cool, I've only ever done one review on this site though, but maybe I'll do another one if I can stop being lazy lol.

This is a nice idea, it's cool to change it up a little from the usual. I'm going to review Atelier Rorona because I really adore that game.

Is anybody else having problems viewing the comments just on this page? i literally cannot see any of your comments because the reply bar has been enlarged and is covering everything. It s only on this topic though, i have tried refreshing the page but nothing.

I have completed my review now (for Atelier Rorona), I hope you guys enjoy it. :) Again, this competition is such a good idea. It'll be great to see more reviews on the site!
Pyroloveridge's avatar
great review, shame this game only got average reviews. i will give it a go at some point
Pyroloveridge 4 years ago
Gummy's avatar
Thank you! As I hopefully explained well in the review, you'll probably only enjoy it if you're really keen on JRPG's and want something a bit old-school. I really hope that if you do go ahead and get it that you'll enjoy it. The series is a favorite of mine, and it would be nice to see more people getting enjoyment out of it.

I've reviewed for Infamous 2 just to see how it went. Figure I may do some if I manage to get in to my collection. Counted it today and I have about 27 games I want to get through... <_<

I've reviewed DmC: Devil May Cry! Hope you enjoy it! Don't really know how good I am at writing reviews but I thought I'd give it a shot.

Loving the review idea. Might have to do one. Although I have trouble with using points anyways. Whenever I try to they just don't do it on checkout. I think it's due to everything I get from shopto being a pre-order
DynamiteWhyte's avatar
You have to go in to your pre-order, and tick the 'use points when paying' part. That is if you don't pre-pay anyway.

I fancy my chances at the review writing - I only ever wrote one review for GAME.co.uk and I won review of the month! But that was probably because I was able to spell and write coherently, imagine it will be a bit more competitive here.

I always wrote some reviews... I am especially proud of my Midway Arcade Origins one from some time ago. If it persuaded some more people to buy that awesome collection its done its job

I always wanted to review things for the site but couldn't be bothered. But now I am going to get free stuff for it I am going to write ALL the reviews and they will be the best reviews ever. Please read my review of Blood Drive which came out 4 years ago and you didn't buy but I think is amazing and you can get it for a pound or something now.

Sadly in my opinion one of the worst games I have ever played Datastatic. I might do something a little different and review Tomb Raider vs The Old Style Tomb Raider, the differences and the advantages of one over the other! Need to play the new one first. I am loving this new idea. I did write one some time ago for Midway Arcade Origins :)

Ended up doing one for Pirate Warriors. A game that is good but not good enough. I was kinda mixed on it since as a OP fan it didn't come close to what I wanted it to be.

We are still tweaking the formula to this competition, but I think next week that we'll add a 500 word limit to reviews to make it a bit easier for us to judge. Also don't worry if you are not confident about grammar, spelling or just writing in general, as long as what you are saying makes sense you'll stand as good a chance as anyone. :)
troublemaker's avatar
500 words is cool. I think mine was about 420, so I'm happy with that. Liking the competition though Joe. Good to read what everyone has put up!

Thanks kikicookie90. I'm glad you like it. I enjoyed Darksiders II a lot. I couldn't put it down since I got it from ShopTo. I also played all of the DLCs (I liked them a lot). I really hope that there will be a third one (if someone buys the IP)
