Editors' Review

Game Booster is an easy-to-use program that shuts down unnecessary system processes in order to improve the performance of resource-thirsty games. With an intuitive interface that makes it easy to switch between gaming mode and normal mode, Game Booster is a simple but powerful program.

Game Booster's interface is basic, with a list of 24 noncritical processes that can be shut down during gaming. Check boxes allow users to select specific processes. It is true that you have to take a leap of faith with some of these; if you're not extremely computer savvy, you may have no idea what it is that you're shutting down. We can say that our system suffered no ill effects from temporarily disabling all of the listed processes, and the program quickly started them again when we switched back to normal mode. We do wish that the program came with a Help file that went into detail about this issue, though. In addition to disabling unnecessary system processes, Game Booster offers a game defragmenter that specifically defragments the game directories, allowing a given game to start and run more quickly. Overall, we found Game Booster to be both easy to use and effective. We noticed a significant difference in game performance when using gaming mode, and we think this is a great choice for users who need to optimize their systems for gameplay.

Game Booster is free. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.

"Simple but can be very effective!"

October 13, 2011  |  By G0NE2W4R

 |  Version: Game Booster 3.0

Pros

It helped shut down unnecessary programs and all other executables that normally I would have done through the Task Manager. It does this with just one click. It had a dramatic boost on games that didn't seem playable for me on my laptop, but mainly because it shutdown programs that were eating up RAM and CPU power. I could have done this myself through the task manager, but on Windows 7 there are just too many to unnecessary .exe files and Game Booster simplified it for me. I can cite two games that Games Booster dramatically boosted performance on: Team Fortress 2 and Combat Arms, both are Free to Play. I dont know how Game Booster will do with higher end games. If you are already running games like Crysis 2 on your PC, chances are you already have the necessary hardware to run them at optimum performance. I predict Game Booster won't help much. But try it out. I highly recommend.

Cons

It didn't shut down all unnecessary programs but you could do that yourself if you know what your doing. Those who arent careful can possibly shut down important windows files.

Summary

Highly recommend for gaming.
