From the creators of a successful hacker games series (Digital Hazard, BS Hacker, etc) Hacker Evolution is a new hacking simulation game, featuring unparalleled graphics and features.
You play the role of a former intelligence agent, specializing in computer security. When a chain of events sets off worldwide, leaving critical service disabled, you assume the role a computer hacker to find out what happened and attempt to stop it. When a stock market, a central bank, satellite uplink and transoceanic fiber optics links crash, you know this is more then a simple event. Something big is behind all this, and you have to figure out what is it. You hack into computers, look for exploits and information, steal money to buy hardware upgrades in an attempt to put all the pieces of a big puzzle, together.
Set in a virtual operating system environment, the game is packed with all the features required to bring the hacker feeling and experience to every gamer. The concept behind Hacker Evolution is to create a game that challenges the gamer's intelligence, attention and focus, creating a captivating mind game. Solve puzzles, examine code and bits of information, to help you achieve your objectives.
Hacker game? Gimme that! oh wait…DeaD | Dec. 11, 2012 | See all DeaD's reviews »
This game returns to the old text based games, so if you want something spectacular, don’t bother. First i thought of something like, oh my god i’m gonna experience something fantastic, a new world will open itself to me. Well it didn’t but the game is fun anyway. Maybe there are not that much commands, and maybe getting into a „database” won’t make you dance, or order a champagne, but it certainly does have a feeling. These were the good. And now for the bad. The game is hard (or at least it was for me [first time at the franchise]), and not that entertaining. Even so i’d say it does, what it wants to, and i do accept it’s uniquness. It is kinda cheap, so it is worth trying, but do think about whether it fits you or not.
Less hacking and more mini-gamesManiacal | Dec. 7, 2012 | See all Maniacal's reviews »
Hacker Evolution is sold as a hacking simulation game but it plays as much more of a series of repetitive mini-games. It is kind of fun for a little while pretending to be some 1337 haxor the novelty wears off as the repetitiveness sets in. It isn't as bad as the hollywood movie and TV show "hacking" scenes, but it isn't really that much better either. The aesthetic design is lacking as well, there wasn't much worth taking a screenshot of. If you are really into pretending to be a hacker it will certainly be fun for a while at least though.

I wouldn't call this a hacking simulation. It just looks like one, at first sigh at least, until you find out the minigames involved in hacking, which are just generic minigames that don't have anything to do with hacking.
So if you like minigames with dome interesting setting and plot about hackers, get it, but if you expect a hacking simulator like uplink (or even the first Hacker Evolution game) the this is not the game you're looking for.
Easier than Uplink.zhack075 | Sept. 3, 2012 | See all zhack075's reviews »
this game is fun to play. I'm not a hacker but it's still nice todive in this particulary atmosphere of hacking. To my mind this game is easier than uplink but remains challenging. If you want a nice puzzle game and you like those kind of universe this game is made for you. If you want something more challenging try uplink.
Not what I expectedFreebird | Aug. 22, 2012 | See all Freebird's reviews »
Well, here I go. I pre-ordered this game in a whim, as the main website stated it was a "HACKING SIMULATOR" that would revolutionise the franchise. It also stated it would have open world gameplay, upgradeable parts, and a slew of other things that made me salivate in anticipation. After playing through the full game, not only was I SEVERELY underwhelmed, I was also presented with the poignant fact that the dev had been lieing to us to such an extent that it was shameful. Not only that, but now when people ask for refunds or complain on his forums, he promptly deletes the threads and goes on a rampage saying that for ever unhappy consumer there are (according to his own words, mind you, and he is basically quoting steam numbers which I believe is illegal.) TENS OF THOUSANDS of faithful followers. Not ten, not eight, but plural TENS of thousands.
His website is stagnating, nobody visitis it, forums on steam and other outlets absolutely simmer with hatred for the guys lies and rip-off charlatanry, yet he is confident that his mystical tens of thousands of avid fans will heave him above their heads and praise him as a god. Anyways, enough about that, on to the review.
After playing through about two hours and finding NONE of what he talked about, as in , no simulation, no open ended gameplay. I uninstalled in disgust, but played a second time, as I had purchased the super expensive pre-order... I gave it another try just because the game cost me money and I honestly am in disbelief of the fact that the creator lied so much about what he was making. He touted it as a hardcore realistic hacking simulator with open world unscripted gameplay as well as other hackers that you could ally with.
