CNET 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.
