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 500-700 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.

I don't think I can write a review on another game with as much heart and soul as I did for the Mass Effect 3 one, no games have made me feel as much as the Mass Effect universe
Pyroloveridge's avatar
Loved the whole universe, now the ending did make me feel crap and now i seem to have lost interest, which is a massive shame for something i enjoyed so much

I liked the ending, because it was an ending, I don't want to say more because I know one person who still hasn't finished ME2 yet.

So my entry this week is on my runner up game of last year. Spec Ops: The Line. Due to the word count (i went 34 over the limit, oops) I had to miss out on a few points I wanted to make, but the meat is there, for your perusal and enjoyment http://www.shopto.net/video%20games/ps3/PS3SP12-spec-ops-the-line

Good review, has made me a bit more interested in playing it.

troublemaker's avatar
My only 2 additions, if your interested, would be to never touch the MP, ever. Cory Davis, one of the devs for the game, described it as a forced in abomination. And second, the very poor quality of the unreal engine is hidden well with the sand, shadow and particle physics. it hides it's inefficiencies well. Thanks for reading though. I appreciate it

I agree with Troublemaker Spec Ops The Line is a great game and for the price you can get it for now it is a steal

This week I decided to review the excellent Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow: Mirror Of Fate on the 3DS. I was on the fence about getting it initially. So glad I did. http://shopto.net/video%20games/3ds/3DSCA06-castlevania-lords-of-shadow-mirror-of-fate-includes-3-posters

I'll give it a read right now then post my thoughts

Ok now that i had a read while eating my dinner I would have to say............ its a quite a good read so much that I will pick it up once I get round to playing Lords of Shadows (I do love Metroidvania)
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
Robichoico's avatar
Thanks. Wasn't all that fussed on Lords Of Shadow myself. Combat was fun and it was more fun than a certain other series it's inspired from. But I just couldn't get into it.

Great review. Was a very good read. If I had a 3DS I would certainly give it a go

Going for a Review that is no where near as personal as my Mass Effect 3 one from last week, I'm hitting up Need for Speed Most Wanted this week http://www.shopto.net/video%20games/xbox360/XB2NE15-need-for-speed-most-wanted

Good review mate. Hit the nail right on the head for Most Wanted, at least for me

I remember what boss you're talking about Gloria i was stuck for ages until i realized that i could shoot the water with the stun gun (If my memory serves me right)
Dead's avatar
Dead 4 years ago
I should go back and give it another try sometime, sometimes things that frustrate you are instantly solvable when you go back to them after a while and you wonder what the problem was in the first place. If only I didn't have so many other games that needed playing.

Boss fights in Deus ex are nothing but a pain. To clear them quick, even on the hardest difficulty, spam the typhoon system. 3hits and boss is done and you're free to play the actual good part of the game. Hope it helps those that are revisiting the game.

And a thousand apologies to those that feel they can't compete with my writing. It's something I like to do, but didn't realise it was as good as you all seem to think it is. Sorry.

The hardest boss in Deus ex: HR for me was the first guy, theres not alot of cover and you have to keep your distance else your toast. Yelena Fedorova was the one Gloria mentioned i like her as a character but i agree that boss fight was annoying at first. And as for the 3rd boss i shot him 3 times with a grenade launcher and he died lol.
Shoxy85's avatar
Shoxy85 4 years ago
Have to agree about the first boss. Him and the guy as you come out the lift (second to last, possibly) caused me endless hours of pain.

The rules said I could enter more than once and with my beloved Bolton Wanderers not playing today I got bored and also did Far Cry 3 on the PC. I wont win but I just don't like seeing some awesome games with no reviews!

Very nice review Shoxy, Far cry 3 was also my first experience of the franchise (i played on ps3) i enjoyed the main campaign alot, however the multiplayer/co-op wasn't very good. Did anyone else experience there game getting demonically possessed on multiplayer? lol. The screen went red and every other player froze or was jittering except me, i was running around the map and i could hear explosions and screams/shouts??? It happened a couple of times actually, strange.

Great review LFC. I love MK9. I still play it on ps3 and Vita regularly. One of the few fighting games with a story mode worth playing. And the only fighting game I can win at online. Haha!

Shoxy85 4 years ago
Ahh poo! I didn't even notice ShopTo had done a Far Cry 3 review. It makes mine look even more terrible!...... Good review, Bywater! I've never been able to play MK since I was a kid. There's always been types of games I just couldn't get my head around and the MK style of fighting games is one of them. I just can't do them...... Maybe I should get drunk and have a go as I seem to become invincible on most games when I'm drunk.

It's shooting games for me! I used to go out straight from work on a Friday and come home about 9pm unable to walk, switch on the xbox and become the terminator. My team even started to set up clan matches for late on Friday night, knowing how good I'd be! I have no idea how. I was pretty average the other 6 days of the week.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
