Uplink is a game that I can definitely say I enjoy. Although not the most realistic (and that's completely fine), I find it fun to hack into different servers and try to cover your traces.
I spent around 17 hours with Uplink as it normally is, but now I'm using Uplink OS, which is amazing. It's way more modern, and fixes a couple of strange quirks with the normal game, such as requiring you to have your mouse cursor over text boxes to type.
My childhood game. After that, I realized what a proxy chain is.
Pretty cool hacker simulator, if not the best. A lot of things are solved by the mouse, this game is not about manual input of commands into the console. Nevertheless, the tasks are pretty close to the real world and you have to constantly erase your tracks and remember about it.
Introversion Software's games are not to be underestimated, Uplink is a good example. This game can be replayable with different missions, tools, and locations each time you start a new game. Try this game out, you won't regret it.
For an old GUI game, Uplink is painfully clever, engaging and addicting, despite how simplistic it is. It even manages to give the player a feeling of being sneaky or paranoid without going overboard in doing so. It really makes players feel like truly hacking things.
There is one large problem with the game however, and it's that it leaves you high and dry on what to do, which can lead you to a lot of permanent game over screens. You'll have to look up guides on the internet to fully understand things, as the game doesn't do that for you.
An excellent hacking sandbox game that is fun to play around with(Also easy to understand), though it suffers from the fact that your hours and hours of work can be gone from one mistake. Still, worth buying.
I bought this game with an enthusiasm that quickly tapered off thanks to an annoying interface, repetitiveness, and a general boredom that comes from a game when you sense it is past its prime. Uplink is starting to show its age, except to the nostalgia blind.
