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.

"I lost nothing but gained a lot of speed on my PC."

May 26, 2012  |  By AbeYosef

 |  Version: Game Booster 3.3.1

Pros

Detailed percent on programs that slows my gaming or unnecessary programs.(Best feature ever)

Cons

I don't find anything that is bad about it. Maybe a future added feature would be detail on what programs that my OS have and shouldn't be deactivated so that I may have a clue.

Summary

It optimized my pc well like any other optimizers. Give's a clear and thorough details which I needed to boost my PC during Online game and the best of all it was free. Thanks and good luck to all those who create this. Looking forward for the next and better version.

"Seems to work, but maybe not with older games."

May 25, 2012  |  By ChukkleB

 |  Version: Game Booster 3.3.1

Pros

Turns off the background junk.

Cons

Did not work with Assassins Creed (which failed to run with Game Booster running).

Summary

May not work with older games, but certainly seems to turn off some of the unneccessary processes that would otherwise be running in the background.

I would like to see some sort of before/after function to determine exactly how much it is helping.

"Great free app that works."

May 23, 2012  |  By SoullessEyes

 |  Version: Game Booster 3.3.1

Pros

It does just what it says it does. Noticed a 10 FPS boost while playing SWTOR. Even more on other games.
Easy to use and it's free.
Currently using version 3.5 beta. The video capture feature is great for a free app.

Cons

Not going to be free for much longer. Still, I'd pay for game booster.

"Great for P4Ht and AGP graphics"

May 22, 2012  |  By leuzier13

 |  Version: Game Booster 3.3.1

Pros

It closes all unnecessary programs that you have configured prior to running it. It will quickly defrag. the game file. It will run the boost and launch the game at 21 click of your mouse. It even monitors the temperature of your CPU, MB, Graphics card, and fan speed. It will give the running game program, max. CPU priority over any background prog. I run a Pent. 4 w/Ht 3.Gig, with 2G. ddr, 256Mb ddr3 7800GS video card. I've been playing games on it that were at minimum system requirements.Now I run the same games with higher graphics and higher resolution.

Cons

If you like the way your Desktop is arranged than don't pick any of the options that include desktop manager. This is the only con from this program. It cannot put the desktop icons back the way they were if you arrange them like I do, so that I can see my background picture on my desktop.

Summary

Most of the time I get freeware, I'm not the least impressed.I'm very happy with this program that I paused my game to give everyone a heads up on this program. I've been using Game Booster since version 3.1 and its only gotten better with each update.Get this one before they figure out they should be charging for it.

Updated on May 22, 2012
