The Good: The software is lightweight and the interface is uncluttered. It allows easy tweaking of recording options. There is a rich collection of objects for illustration purposes. The software offers on-demand delivery options helping it cement its place in our review as one of the best game recording software. Hot keys are defined by the user.
The Bad: No HD recording. This will not go down well with many users considering the cost of the software. The software is not fully compatible with windows 7. This is why the manufacturer requests users to download a trial version first to confirm compatibility.
The Verdict: The software is highly customizable and offers a good range of conversion and editing options. If your computer is compatible with the software, you will find it very valuable. However, there are cheaper and better alternatives.
