I get all my import games off of play.com and NEVER had any issue. I got civilizations from play.com a few years back early and has ordered from them ever since

I've never had an issue personally, but a few friends etc have had problems with CD's and the odd game, getting sent the wrong items altogether.

I always pre order from GAME, i think they are great, games are always dispatched 2 days before they are released and are always bang on the day or a day early!
Plus you get the double reward points for pre orders, save a lot of money that way.
I haven't used play.com in a while, i don't think it's always clear enough that sometimes you are buying from a marketplace seller so things take longer, and i don't think they monitor their market place traders very well, i've seen some really negative reviews.

I find its better to just go to Mal-Wart or Gamestop to get the game. I pre-ordered Sims back in June (along with NHL11). I just phone around lunch and see if it's in. Normally its in (aside from when I ordered NHL09, it was a day late).
Amazon.ca likes to fuck around when I order stuff. It took them 3 weeks to realize that Rage Against the Machine's "Live & Rare" album was out of stock at the Amazon.ca warehouse. I ordered it off someone else and it arrived a week later.
