I know this is a game but does it require much knowledge of how hacking works? I've seen the TV/Hollywood versions of hacking and they look a laugh but I imagine the real thing is a tad boring. Is this the Hollywood version?

This is the Hollywood version. Uplink uses a GUI. This is what Windows would be if it was modified for hacking. If it was possible. No, the game is almost nothing like real hacking.

What were you going to say? I'll edit and let you say it, if you like.

Probably showing my age here but is like War Games style? Tracking down passwords and stuff.

in a word....no

what you do is get passwords and use them to do stuff on servers, and theree are missions where you have to trace hackers by looking @ the logs on the servers, but those are hard...

I think "having nothing to do with reality" would work.

Great sounds absolutely brilliant. Less real the better I guess.

BTW I tried calling EB and they'd never heard of it. Is the game available by mail only?

Sorry for being a pain in the bum.
