Over dit spel

You play an Uplink Agent who makes a living by performing jobs for major corporations. Your tasks involve hacking into rival computer systems, stealing research data, sabotaging other companies, laundering money, erasing evidence, or framing innocent people.

You use the money you earn to upgrade your computer systems, and to buy new software and tools. As your experience level increases you find more dangerous and profitable missions become available. You can speculate on a fully working stock market (and even influence its outcome). You can modify peoples academic or criminal records. You can divert money from bank transfers into your own accounts. You can even take part in the construction of the most deadly computer virus ever designed.

A pretty old game, but it's as they say."Old But Gold".
At the start I was so confused, had no idea that to begin the actual Missions I would have to hack into the test server (I'm a dumbass).But after having my account terminated (many times) I learned to do better than on my last go,What I love about this game is that it's trial and error, no margin for mistakes.Any other game out there is like:Oh, you fell of a cliff that said "Do not approach", don't worry, come back from the checkpoint.In this game it's more like: Oh, you forgot to delete your logs in the InterNIC after a careful hack with no other traces>Sorrt m8, back you go lolol.

I have been playing Uplink since about 2010 or so, so all things considered, I have a LARGE amount of undocumented hours (900+). I have purchased the source code and created modifications and let me tell you, even within Chris's code, there are hidden easter eggs that did not make the cut. This game has become an all time favorite of mine.

The story line is pretty good, but I have to say it isn't the greatest. There is lots of waiting inbetween missions, but I guess that isn't a bad thing because it lets you recoup any money lost to do a mission.

I guess my big complaint with Uplink is that once you reach a certain level (usually around Knowledgable or so), the missions don't chnage much, and there isn't much to do after the story has ended.

Amazing game. You don't need to deal with actually advanced stuff, but it still keeps you in character and with the emotion of well, ♥♥♥♥ing things up.

The realism in a sense may be good or bad, depending on how you like your games. You ♥♥♥♥ up here, you deal with it or start all over again.

The gameplay is tricky, but once you start to understand the game you'll have a ton of fun. I first played this game in my basement in 2007 or so, not even a teenager yet I think. Receiving the box and looking at the secret message behind the cover insert was exciting, and discovering the secret files hidden on that CD are some of my fondest memories as a kid. Even though Uplink is just a "hollywood-style" hacking game, it's not as unrealistic as some, and it's probably part of why I'm currently a senior in college and will be earning two degrees in IT in May next year.

Oh yeah, and the SOUNDTRACK IS AMAZING. I cannot stress enough just how beautiful this soundtrack is, I still listen to it nearly a decade later!

I've been playing text games since that's all there was. So when I saw this up for sale, a long while back, I couldn't have cared less about the lack of graphics. Honestly, graphics would only ruin this game. It's a hacking game. It's a break your way into someone's system, or network, then steal, alter, or break whatever your mission calls for, get out clean, get paid and buy upgrades. Breaking in can be a challenge, but even more so is making sure to cover your tracks so no one catches you, all of which becomes increasingly difficult as go progress. Do I like this game? Absolutely. I've gladly started this game over dozens of times after being busted for not covering my tracks, or not getting out of a system before they traced me.

If you're into increasingly difficult puzzle games, and the idea of being a hacker, this is the game for you. If not, try it anyways. It's a great game at a ridiculously cheap price.

This game is quite a difficult game to understand, but once you get into it, it REALLY gets exciting.

With different software types, server types and the possibility of being fined or even disavowed (where your account is terminated) it all makes for one interesting game.

I reccomend this because of the fact that it is extremely fun to play.

LOVE the game, but seriously, why did you include the Mission Impossible: II(2)/MI2 Theme Song at the very beginning of the trailer? (If you didn't notice, it's just a 3 second tune at the beginning of the trailer.) Anyways, the game was awesome!
I don't care that this game was released back when 2000 was popular. Infact, that's the whole reason I got the game. It has a old-fashioned look, and I love(notice I didn't put "ed") old-fashioned games. I remember the day windows 95 got released too. But I recomment this game to everyone. Just because it was released 10 years ago, doesn't mean it isin't good.

Finally after years of training online and offline, Hours of guides, Hours of grinding, Suffering. Regret always in the back of my mind for the time wasted on this. It has officially happened. I am a master hacker. Rushing through the logs deleting with the percision of a scalpel, never wasting a moment dedicated to filling my billion dollar bank account with more money. Trying to simulate the initial rush of robbing a bank. I rush in with a bounce network all around the world starting with InterNIC. I quickly start up my timer and turn on the proxy and firewall Disable tools. Brute force but neccesary for speed. It shuts off and I run the admin account I had stolen from early contacts. I'm in I copy all the accounts down, I find the prize i'm looking for. Killian Hoyal, a 967 million dollar account, a legend hidden inside of my personal gameworld. It had taken years of searching and doing favors to gain the proper knowledge to find this account. Quickly I delete disconnect from the server and rush into my log database at InterNIC, deleting all traces of my connection. Yes, I had finally found everything I would need to stage the largest bank robbery in the history of the world. From the comfort of my home. I go and make an anonymous bank account under a pseudonym. The bank is small so it wouldn't be a high priority target to search if the FBI caught onto my trail. Finally I take a deep breath, 4 minutes 11 seconds says my timer. Wasting no time I quickly connect to the bank where Killian Hoyals money is kept. Running bypasses, disablers, and all manners of illicit software designed to slow down any one looking for me, and to make sure I don't leave a trace. I log into his account using the details I found from the admin account. I go into transfer funds and make the trade to my bank account in Monrovia, Liberia. The transfer goes through. I go into his transaction logs and edit the log showing the money was sent to another hackers that had previously done me harm earlier on. I disconnect and reconnect to my account in Liberia. The money is there, perfect. I go into my transaction logs and delete the log showing the money recieved. Almost done, I connect to my home bounce and log into the logs. I delete the log showing me connecting to the banks in the first place. Just like that, his money is mine with no trace to be found of it. A job well done, I am officially. A master hacker.

Set in the "future" of 2010 (Yep, that old) you play as an Uplink Agent. It starts with you "connecting" to the Uplink Servers to create your new hacker identity. After a fake-but-believable-ish "boot up" you are directly connected to your remote proxy gateway, and ready for some plausibly deniable crime. This isn't real hacking, but the way the game presents itself you don't need too much imagination or suspend too much disbelief to leave an exciting doubt in the back of your mind. Easily the most immersive game I have ever experienced.

The game is completely open-ended and very complex, but approachable (There is even an in-game IRC that connects you to a real-life Uplink chatroom to talk to others in the game, if someone happens to be on it at the time.). It gives you an optional, basic tutorial risk-free on one of the Uplink Corporation's testing servers, and there are further tutorials on Uplink's main server, but after that you are left to your own ingenuity. That's a common, repeating theme of this game. Experiment, have some fun. You hacked into the social security database for your last job, what about doing it again to mark yourself as "deceased" to really become a ghost, or hack the criminal records database and put a warrant for arrest out on a server admin that made things difficult for you. In fact, the only way to "beat" this game, is to "break" it. You won't find any "questlines" or the like until you are experienced enough think a bit outside your usual targets...

One of the few games that makes missions non-linear, simply because these aren't missions, they are contracts. A deal between you and an anonymous individual working on behalf of a random company. You can go ahead and tell your employer "Nope, not in the mood, have someone else do it." after you accept the contract... for half the pay up front! (Although, good luck getting another job if your reputation is too spotty!) Perhaps someone paid you to give the guy an A, and on a whim (and after your paycheck), you put his "D-" right back. What about this investigation of corporate corruption? You have it all tied up, got your pay and everyone is happy. But you still have access to the thief's account, and for a short window of time, it's still filled to the brim with your employer's siphoned money.
Backstab at your leisure(and peril), none of it's scripted.

On the negative side, if you look at the screenshots, that's pretty much how the game looks. You can install themes to change up the color scheme if the sharp black+blue hurts your eyes, or you just want to tell people who come over that you are hacking the matrix. Throughout the game there are very few graphic representations, and when there are the best you could hope for is an animated picture (usually just static images, though). It would be easy to dismiss these issues as "part of the experience" but that's just a cheesy way of dodging "Its a really old game, you will have to deal with terrible graphics". Admittedly, though, it IS easy to overlook the visuals, simply because its what you expect to see on some TV hacker's monitor.

Gameplay-wise, once you know how to do it, and get personaly experinced with it, you can get all the money you ever want within a few hours from starting and there is little replay value until you leave long enough to forget how to play. This is problematic and game length ties in directly to how good you are at it. You could beat the game in an hour and a half if you know what you are doing.
Don't spoil it for yourself and look up how to start the ending! You will have more fun figuring it out for yourself!

Being a very old game, it also has interface problems. No scroll-wheel support being the worst offender, the necessity to have your mouse hovering over any information box you are trying to type in is a close second. Its a pain, and something to be aware of, but it doesn't get in the way of enjoying the game once you are used to it (Using the tab button is an easy fix to the second one).

At the end of the day, Its certainly worth the 10$, but should you still be on the fence about it, it goes on sale for crazy low prices. Just whatever you do: make SURE you don't miss out on this game!

All I know about real-life hacking is that it looks incredibly boring. It's all command prompts and IP addresses. Who wants to type in hexadecimal? Ew. It's nothing like TV hacking, where you are a magical techno-wizard that's all about throwing programs like spells and racing the clock in a dramatic race against the significantly less attractive system administrator.

Uplink is TV Hacking: The Game.
