    Are they based in the UK or US? Mario Baseball's a good price, but not if I have to add import tax on the top :rolleyes:

    I also want Battalion Wars, ben searching prices but haven't found better than your price.

    www.dvdboxoffice.com have got it for just over £30 (CAN$62.95). They'll post it out free of charge, and I've never been hit by a customs charge for a game before (except Donkey Konga, which they had to send by DHL, who charge you for everything).

    You could try

    www.videogamesplus.ca

    I know from the NTSC uk forums that they are already shipping Battalion Wars and seem to be a good reliable company.

    OK I've order it from ImportMaddness. Seamed to be the cheapest, I found a copy on ebay, but would have been £35 inc postage. The ImportMaddness copy says it comes with a memory card as well ( none of the others said that ). Should be with me in 5 working days, I've give a breif review when i get my hands on it.

    This has been the Gamecube game I have been looking forward to the most !!! ( and thats out of all GC releases ) I'm suprised Nintendo have not pushed it more!

    Anyway I'll post again once I get it ( if I can tear myself away from the game )

    Have you used ImportMadness before? Wondering what the chances of being hit with import taxes are. Doesn't seem to clear if they're based in the UK or US :confused:

    Hi Tetlee, I've not used ImportMadness before, but friends have and none of them have been stung for import tax yet. I know your interested in the game too, I can post again when it arrives and tell you if I got stung for import tax or not. If you can wait that long, then you will know for sure, and I will be able to comment on ImportMadness's service a delivery speed.

    I belive they are located in the US.
    Hope that helps ( I want the game now, I can't wait :( )

    I bought GBA SP from them a couple months ago.

    No problems with tax. Got it marked as gift when I ordered.

    Game's shouldn't be a problem.

    Well I planned on post back here to tell you what I thought of this game and what I thought of ImportMadness's service. I can't tell you how the game is yet as I still don't have it. One thing I can tell you for sure is ImportMadness's service is dreadfull!!!

    I ordered the game on Friday 23rd Sep (2 weeks ago). Even though the item was labled "Usually Ships Within 24 - 48 Hours" it was not posted until Weds 28th Sep ( I make that 5 day, or 3 working days ). The they said that from posting I would recieve my game in 5 days. Today is Friday 7th Oct I make that 9 days ( or 7 working days ). So even being kind and working on weekdays ( exc Sat and Sun ) they took and extra day before they posted and it has now been 2 extra days in posting time.

    I have just worded an email to them to ask what is going on and explain that I will not be ordering from them again in the future.

    Hope fully I get my game soon and then I can tell you all what I think of it. In the mean time I advise you all steer clear of ImportMadness

    Was going to come back & ask you what you thought of the game. Bugger, sorry to hear it's taking so long :mad: .

    You're not the only one dissapointed though, I ordered "Champions of Norrath" from SimplyGames on 19th September, received an email saying it had been shipped on 26th September, still no game :mad: .

    Got in touch with SimplyGames, they told me I now have to go through their claims procedure, then kept me waiting a further two days & another phone call before emailing me the claims form(which they said they would email immediatly).

    Wouldn't recommend SimplyGames any more from now on :suicide:

    Anyway, hope you get your game, will be waiting for your opinions

    TBH Games Guru, there's one good thing about throwing Mario into sports game. It has a strange effect of attracting non-gamers into games. In feb I'm moving abroad and my girlfriend has one HUGE family, from experience of visiting them I can tell you that the only games most of them will play are the Mario titles.

    Strange I know but non-gamers seem to feel somehow less intimidated by games when the see Mario & Co on the cover. Right now I'm trying to get as many multi-player games for the Gamecube as poss, the Cube's gonna be the multiplayer console (already have 4 wavebirds) and the 360 will be looked after & cared for just for me :D

    I'm no huge Mario fan, but if he can encourage four players of all ages to sit around and have a laugh, it suits me. Occasionally takes some of the pressure off having to try to communicate in Spanish ;)

    Hurray. My copy of Battalion Wars came today. I've only played the first 3 missions but already I know this is going to be a fantastic game. From what I have played so far I love it. So Tetlee go and buy it now! This game is good, I'll post more here when I have played a few more missions.
