When you got the demo, how long did it take before you decided to buy the full version?
It took me about half an hour before I decided to get it because it was so good:)
I wouldn't have even heard of the game if a review had'nt been put on

I think shortly after hacking my first real mission computer, not the Uplink Test Computer, becoming tense as the Trace got closer, cursing at my slow comp and poor processing power, and barely grabbing the file I needed before the trace came through, I was hooked after that. I plan on buying the full game as soon as I can find it.

Almost a year I had to settle for the demo before I was finally able to order Uplink: Hacker Elite. Just got it in this week. :)

I lasted about 3 days! I only got the full game about a week ago. Just played it long enough to make sure there were no irritating bugs!

There's a few bugs, most of them are fixable/avoidable though

The first time that I got the black screen that said that I was out of time was when I wanted it.  It took a little under a month (Christmas gift) but I did get it. :)

The record for my fastest game purchase still belongs to Max Payne.  Fifteen minutes after installing the demo version I drove out to the store and bought a copy, then proceeded to go on an eight hour marathon and beat the game. :)

I played for about 2 weeks, I think what finally turned me was just being extremely frustrated about the demo bombing out just as you began to have fun.

I can still remember when i order it, it was the longest week of my life :-)

Same here, you go to school, think of all the fun you could be having on uplink, and just can't think or concentrate on anything else:)

I got it about a month after I played the demo...thinking about it, if I'd ordered it straight away I would have managed to get one of the original CD-R copies. Ah well...  :(

I played the demo, got the warez version and wanted to support IV so I bought it. It was a long time ago.
I did defeat Epyon, on Hard Mode but I used up lots of continues. :)

Never tried the demo. Just one day decided to borrow a disc from a friend of mine which supposedly had a "hacking game". I was reluctant to return the CD to him :)
