Being in possession of a Computer Science degree, 'Uplink' should make me a very angry person. In 'Uplink', you play a “hacker” working for a hacking organisation, given missions of varying difficulty to hack into a computer somewhere in the world and steal, delete or alter a file, all the while ensuring you aren't detected. A format which gets a bit stale. Being a game it is, naturally, hideously innaccurate so don't expect to learn how to actually hack, but as something to keep you entertained for a few hours, 'Uplink' is something different and does the job nicely.
Tom's Score – 6/10
