    I've was recently over in the states and decided to buy the link crossbow training game whilst i was over there..

    Little did i know that you can't use US games in the EU, when i got back to the UK, i went to try the game out and it came up with a "can't read the disk" error..

    Is there a way of getting round this or am i stuck with a game i can't use?

    Thanks in advance for any help on this one!

    You're stuck with a game you can't use.

    Only way to play all region games is to get a modd chip, that voids the warranty and can end up bricking your Wii.

    Not highly recomended choice..lol still its not that great of a game "very shot but fun" in the end its just a tutorial for the Wii Zapper which you probably still got a deal with the exchange rate. It wasn't all a loss. Do they offer the zapper in EU yet?

    I personally don't like region locks I can see why they did it but it's still lame : / When my warranty is void I'm going to start looking at mod chips.

    Sell it on Ebay(for more money of course its the wii after all) and then buy one from your country. Sorry about your loss :/
