Short review of the best hacker-simulation 0

When noone thought it was possible, Uplink succeeded in one of the most hypocritical genres, 'Hacking', and found a working balance between fun and authenticity that would keep players playing.Uplink manages to take out the worst amount of dullness and reptitivity that you may find in a real hackers life, but the mistake it makes is to remove the complexity as well. The missions are simple and straightforward, too straightforward, as the approach for each and every mission is laid out beforehand...

Hacking ain't just for nerds anymore! 0

A good friend of mine, and fellow gamer introduced me to this game, and since that day I have not played a game this unique. First of all, the graphics are really simplistic and very much text-based, which are totally fitting given the theme of the game.

Hacking has never been soo much fun! 0

When I first played the game (when it was released on steam) I had no idea that I would be spending most of the day hacking into company mainframes or altering other people's academic records.

Immersion at its finest. 0

The premise behind Uplink is a surprisingly believable one.  The player is a hacker renting the services of the Uplink Corporation.  The principle services are access to employment opportunities and the use of a gateway, a proxy computer through which the player may take on his jobs anonymously.  Naturally, the Uplink Corporation wishes to remain distanced from the activities of its clients and will deny all knowledge of any illegal use of their services.   To minimize risk, the player is taken ...

Paranoia has never been so much fun. 0

I picked up Uplink in a pack on Steam, not thinking much of it at first...and now it maybe my favorite and most addicting game i own on Steam right now.  As far as gaming goes, hacking has been broken down to a game of Pipe Mania or connect the dots but what you get with Uplink is a hacking simulator that feels authentic enough to immerse you in the role of an elite hacking agent. The gameplay is a stratagy of time as you have a limited time to hack a system, yet if you stratigize enough beforeh...
