I'm sure places such as Game and Blockbuster offer a disc repair service now :thumbsup:

My nephew had a circular scratch on one of his games and they tried everything to get rid of it (the scratch was huge), nothing worked but as a last result his dad used some T-Cut that he had for his car and it worked. Haven't tried it myself but it got rid of the scratch and now the game works a treat so definitely worth a try!

what games were they? if you dont mind me asking

Game station do a good job for a couple of quid!

Aye the game shops will do it for about £3 a disk.

OR

the method i use is:
Get some toothpaste (ideally just the bog standard white stuff with no grains or whatever they put in it nowadays) get a soft cloth and rub the toothpaste in lines away from the centre of the disc (NOT in a circular motion) go over each section 2/3 times then rinse the disk in water and dry, then buff with a soft cloth.

should play fine (obviously depending on the severity of the scratches. Hope this helps

lol might be worth a go

I'd take Fable 2 and Saints Row 2 for a tenner. If the scratches are only on the bottom, save you a little bit on postage.

I'd just take the two fable 2 saints row 2.

This thread was in the wrong forum, as your request was for something to fix scratched games. Whilst in FS you let others make offers for each game, those have been deleted and you have received an infraction for that. To compromise it's been moved to Miscellaneous, but you can't list any of the games in the FS forum until at least seven days have passed from today.
