    Uplink is a classic that works really well on the iPad. I still prefer playing it on a PC though, as it connects closer to the subject matter. At times the game feels a bit too real, and too serious and I really just want to disconnect. This is the main problem with this kind of game: it takes commitment, and can't be played casually.

    Uplink is a sublime game that hasn't aged a bit, paying the same tribute to the mainstream perception of Hollywood hacking culture that persists today through those same fondly remembered films.

    A mostly text-based affair, Uplink's minimalistic interface still manages to create more tension and excitement than most games we've come across.

    Uplink was a fantastic breath of fresh air 11 years ago and it still feels just as exceptional now. It's the kind of experience that reminds you why gaming can be so rewarding.

    The things that some people will find clever and immersive about Uplink, others are going to find strange and confusing, but if you fit into the first camp it's a blast of historical futuristic fun.
