9/1/2008 GameHippo.com appears to be officially gone for now. The latest link has been down for a month. There is a fan forum that is still going and working on bringing us a new GameHippo, I will update this page if there's any change in status.

Quality of Site - 5/5:
TheGameHippo.com has just been launched but looks very promising, however due to the issue surrounding the original GameHippo site and it's last owner there are only 100 or so games up on the site. With that said the premise behind the site remains the same all freeware, all the time. They do not mix freeware, shareware, and demos which can always make if harder to find the truly free games.
Searching - 5/5
Searching GameHippo is a breeze with a standard title search and an advanced search on top of browsing games by category/genre. The response time of searching on GameHippo is also very good, with fast response time and no annoying pop-ups or advertisements.
Downloading - 4/5
Downloading a game listed on TheGameHippo has been made much easier. The download links are no longer hidden in at the bottom of the review in indistinguishable text. Now each game page features an orange download button front and center, directly under the game title.
