Summary

Cyberpunk fans MUST have this game!

The Good

It's about as close to hacking as any Hollywood-type hacking can be. Low system requirements since there are no fancy 3D graphics, but they are not needed here. There are already some good mods out there the check out, like the FBI mod.

The Bad

There are some known conflicts about graphics since the game uses OpenGL instead of DirectX. You need to be careful about what version of Uplink you get, since mods won't word with the Strategy First version (Uplink: Hacker Elite). Get it directly from Introversion.

The Bottom Line

If you are a fan of cyberpunk, YOU MUST HAVE THIS GAME! If you are a fan of hacking, YOU MUST HAVE THIS GAME! If you just like playing computer games, YOU MUST HAVE THIS GAME! If you are alive and own a computer, YOU MUST HAVE THIS GAME!
