Back in September of ’09, a dotTechie that goes by the name of Kinetix did a review of Game Booster (v1.22, Free Edition). Kinetix’s conclusion was the following:
All in all, I believe it to be a very useful program, especially if you have Vista (or XP) as your Operating System and less than satisfactory equipment in your computer rig. Even if your computer is up to snuff, sometimes games are just too much to handle. For example, I have The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion on my computer, and I love loading it up with dozens upon dozens of mods. After a while, this can start slowing down the game a bit (especially on Vista). I searched around and found Game Booster, and most of that extra lag caused by the mods went away. It works well, I recommend you give it a try.
I myself have used Game Booster and I agree with Kinetix. While Game Booster cannot and will not turn your low-end machine into a high-end monster, Game Booster does allow you to better allocate your computer resources towards playing your game(s). In other words, Game Booster helps clear much of the overhead that wastes valuable computer resources.
Of course Kinetix’s conclusion mentioned above is almost two years old and was based on what is now an old version of Game Booster. Game Booster is now v2, which has improvements over v1; and this freebie is of Game Booster Premium, which has more features than Game Booster Free. So it is safe to say Game Booster is still a winner for those who feel their machines aren’t up-to-task when playing games.
That said, I definitely recommend Game Booster Premium for gamers or even people that don’t necessarily game but use their computer for resource-heavy tasks such as image editing and video watching. However, before you go and grab Game Booster Premium, take a look at the following chart that outlines the differences between Game Booster Premium and Game Booster Free so you understand exactly what you are gaining by taking part in this freebie:
