Editors' Review

+

If your computer can't keep up with your games, it may be time to give it a boost. For a small fee, this program wants to change a few settings on your computer to make things run faster. Sadly, the GameGain trial version doesn't make good on its promises; you won't notice any performance upgrade in any of your favorite games.

The program offers a free trial that lasts for 29 days, while the full version costs $12.99. You can't unlock GameGain's "fastest" setting" without paying up, though. The program occasionally needs your administrator password to work, which gives you hope that it will actually be worth paying for. After you click "GO," the program makes you wait a few minutes before restarting. After restarting, the game used for testing didn't seem to run any smoother than before. An Internet speed test done through Speedtest.net didn't show any noticeable gains, either. During testing, the free trial did not live up to its name.

With a crowded marketplace full of programs that will actually boost your performance, there's no apparent reason to try GameGain. Experimenting with the trial version didn't give expected results, so it's hard to tell if the paid version delivers.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of GameGain 3.3.29.2013.

"Stay Away From This Scam!"

June 17, 2010  |  By eagle408

 |  Version: GameGain 2.6.14.2010

Pros

Pros? I don't think so!

Cons

Possibly contains spyware and it does NOT boost system performance any more than editing your Windows registry values on your own might! However, a lucky few may be treated to a system crash with blue screen after downloading this scam-lover program.

Summary

Why even dowload, let alone pay $12 for a program that will attempt to take over your system? I have seen reports that it contains a key-logging Trojan virus. Also, this "company" sells the same products under the brand "Swiftdog". Sounds extremely fishy, no? When you call "customer services", you either get a fax machine or the call will go straight to a voicemail inbox, identifying only the number you called, with NO company name. Also, some sites say a 28-day trial for the product and some say 30-day. People interested in this are better off learning how to increase their PC's performance yourself, or possibly buy a new computer. Programs like this will not work to work to "increase performance". The following things will: run disc and registry cleanup, defrag your hard drive, get rid of spyware and viruses (including the use of scans BEFORE your operating system loads), a hard drive with more space and most importantly, more RAM! Anything else is just a "quick fix", a gimmick or a money-making scam, nothing more. This "product is not worth the few seconds of your life that it takes to download!

"free my arse"

May 09, 2010  |  By nathhead

 |  Version: GameGain 2.5.3.2010

Pros

looks easy to use

Cons

fake freeware

Summary

Found this via google and their own website which said it was completely free (not here, on their website it says freeware) but you need to pay to get full functionality only it doesn't say how much you need to pay or even tell you you need to pay until you've installed it!
hate it. Complete bunch of swindling bastards, it's this kind of crap which ruins the online experience and makes people breach copyright.

"it's great tweak app for game so far."

May 01, 2010  |  By edwardryu

 |  Version: GameGain 2.4.26.2010

Pros

it's very simple to change. faster. it actually changes my gaming experience within limitation hardware situation. there is another app 'game booster'. but it's not really making dramatically.

Cons

it's $9.99 for very tiny app. it should be free or $3 or something.
