Overall Rating: 3.5/5
Caiman.us is a purely freeware game website, you won't find any demos or shareware games here. It boasts an impressive 4,630 games (3,395 unique games) and is one of the most frequently updated freeware gaming websites I've seen.
Fullgames.sk lists a decent number of free computer games both downloadable freeware and free online game but they are also listed along with other retail game assets such as demos and trailers.
Overall Rating: 5/5TheGameHippo.com
offers reviews, links, and information on a wide variety of freeware PC games. It's a revival of the original Game Hippo site that went down back in 2008. While it does not have as many game's listed as the original (as of Nov 2009), it's library of freeware games is slowly building nearly everyday. Hopefully the new site will be able to exceed what the original offered.
Overall Rating: 4/5
Home of the Underdogs is a freeware/abandonware site that offers a vast number of titles for download. It is a virtual gold mine for many classic out of print games and has grown to a library of over 5,000 games. The list of freeware game titles is fairly impressive but it's been quite some time since this site has been updated. Update Sept 2009 - Home of the Underdogs has gone through a number of fan supported redesigns and relaunch leading to multiple sites that are host some (but not all) of the games found on the original.
MegaGames has more info on retail game assets such as cheats, demos, and patches but it does have an excellent free computer game section that is definately worth a look. Most games are hosted on MegaGames and/or provide links/info to the offical game sites.
Noodan had loads of freeware games and free online games. Navigation could be better but once you get use to the site it's fairly easy to see what's new and there is a text search available.
Planet Freeplay is a great source for finding quality freeware games by offering easy to use navigation and more than 1500 downloadable freeware and online games. Listed front and center of the Planet Freeplay home page are the latest freeware titles that have been added to the site. These listings provide the game title, a small preview screenshot and a short description.
Reloaded provides is a free computer game site dedicated to remakes of classic/retro video games and community made freeware games. Layout and navigation of Reloaded is very nice with screenshots and descriptions of all games listed in it's directory.
