    "Works with my modest set of games, however.."

    November 11, 2009  |   By Waiting2Respawn

    Version: Razer Game Booster 1.22

    Pros

    Works as advertised, and stops processes seems to free up RAM.

    Cons

    There is some issues with refreshing the RAM after use, forcing a Reboot. Windows Vista 64 hanging after E. S. IV: Oblivian and do not think about it if you are doing a game that 'has to have' internet.

    Summary

    Helped me deal with, a less than good Video Card. To bring up the FPS in CoD IV Modern Warfare and E. S. IV: Oblivian, until I added the new card then not so noticeable. Default mulitple Process Setting would be nice. With perhaps a Game specific reference page, to save on trial and error settings search.

    Version: Razer Game Booster 1.22

    Pros

    Disable unnecessary program when playing game, easy to use, maximize game loading time.

    Cons

    none of this product makes me dislike it.

    Summary

    I heard this software from my friend, before he played Need For Speed : Undercover. He said this software can disable unnecessary program when playing game, to maximize RAM works. So, I'm curious and download it. Finally, when I used it, the result is awesome ! So, for any gamer, this is must-have software !

    "1 click to free system games that don't need."

    October 27, 2009  |   By critterbuilt

    Version: Razer Game Booster 1.22

    Pros

    Fantastic idea. Releases unneeded system processes during gaming and other graphic & processor intensive applications.

    Cons

    Doesn't offer to reinstate processes after graphic & processor intensive applications are shut down.

    Summary

    Useful even if you don't do gaming but need to free up some memory for graphic & processor intensive applications. But if you are using it for this just get more RAM.

    October 21, 2009  |   By watercolorart

    Version: Razer Game Booster 1.22

    Pros

    system faster reacting. more stable online. Due to virus no 4 stars.
    Maybe trojan infected later, thus not from the program itself. But still attractive place for the virus.

    Cons

    after installing system sometime freeze for a moment, but not in gaming. Later virus detected by Panda AV. (Trojan CI.A) in Setup and EXE file. .Previously McAfee and AVG didn't find it.

    Summary

    Will install again if virus free.

    "closes unnecessary services you don't need when gaming!"

    October 8, 2009  |   By Wiss_83

    Version: Razer Game Booster 1.22

    Pros

    - FREE
    - Closes unnecessary services
    - does not close in gaming mode until it returns to normal
    - defrags the game folder and that could really help
    - simple and easy interface

    Cons

    if you share your internet on another PC, be sure to untick the ICS (Internet connection Sharing)
    nothing other than that!

    Summary

    if you have Vista and got 2 Gig RAM or less , Game booster will be very helpful for you
    even if you have more RAM you can use game booster, every RAM counts
    it's light, helpful and free, go grab it!!

    "Great Software."

    October 8, 2009  |   By the6uard1an

    Version: Razer Game Booster 1.22

    Pros

    Disables programs running in the background and reduces lag while playing games.

    Cons

    None so far.

    Summary

    This product is a must have for every pc gamer. Game Booster disables any unnecessary services and programs running in the background that could cause lag. I was able to play Crysis on my laptop at low-med settings, but with game booster, i can now run it at med (30 fps of course).

    "Game Booster optimizes and provides more ram!"

    October 7, 2009  |  

    Version: Razer Game Booster 1.22

    Pros

    If anyone has a computer that is short on ram, or if you don't have a fast graphics card then this is the program for you! Finally a freeware program that works!

    Cons

    It's rather misleading to claim that the software accelerates your computer's gaming performance. It doesn't do that. If your computer can't handle a demanding game, Game Booster won't make it able to do so.

    Summary

    I like this program because Vista 64 bit uses 1.5GB of ram all the time, which left me with 4.5GB of ram. When I use Game Booster I now have 4.8GB of ram. Please read this: http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-10229569-1.html This will give you more information about Game Booster.

    "One of the best games programs I have ever come across"

    October 7, 2009  |   By tonynbl5136

    Version: Razer Game Booster 1.22

    Pros

    A very simple and easy little program to use. Even a non nerd could set this up in 5 minutes and reap the benefits of increased gaming speeds.

    Cons

    As yet, I have found none except maybe, no reminder to turn it off. Now that really is picking the barrel.
