Get some free games

AdvantagesFree games

DisadvantagesGone bust

"Freeloader is a website where you can download free games. Apparently they went bust a while ago but the site is still there for now, so go while you can. The premise of the website is simple but very effective, you can download full PC game for free. These are not shareware, demos or ten-year-old games. These are full price releases from a year or two ago. I'll go in to more detail later on, but examples of games include Jimmy White Cueball 2 ..." Read review

Good but games have bugs

AdvantagesFree games, fast downloads

DisadvantagesBugs in games, lots of ads

"I first heard about Freeloader through an advert in an internet magazine. Deciding to see what all the fuss was about, I hopped over to the site, signed up, and headed for the games section. The concept behind Freeloader is simple; you are bombarded with adverts and questionnaires in exchange for free computer games. Fair enough. You need a certain number of credits to download each game, and these credits are accumulated by clicking on adverts ..." Read review

Free games to download

AdvantagesFree quality games like GTA to download.

DisadvantagesNone that I can think of.

"I went to the freeloader.com site after reading an article in Video Gamer about the PC game Jimmy Whites Cueball 2. The review gave the game a very respectable 8 out of 10, which was a recommendation on its own, but the reason for this magazine looking at this year old game was actually because they said you can currently download it for free at freeloader.com. The homepage gave me four country options to choose from, so I clicked on the UK link. ..." Read review

Free games

AdvantagesThe games are free and it features some great games and the layout and design is fab.

DisadvantagesTwo small catches.

"...free, and the case of freeloader.com it's absolutely true! This website offers top PC games to download, for no cost to you! And we are talking top games, even though some are old but it's none of your shareware rubbish! Star billing is the fantastic gangland getaway game GTA London 1969 (the original Grand Theft Auto is also available).Other big name games you can get for the asking include futuristic roadwar racer Hidden & Dangerous and that sublime ..."

Still Alive and Kicking

AdvantagesLot's of Free Games

DisadvantagesRumoured to be going under

"I read with regret that Freeloader had gone to the wall in an op by webreaper. I checked out Freeloader but it still seems to be functioning, so asked webreaper for more info which he duly provided. There seem to be a lot of rumours, but it still seems to be functioning properly. Anyway to the site. If you go to www.freeloader.com you get a choice of English , French , German or US sites. You have to register to gain access to download stuff. ..." Read review

100% Free Games

AdvantagesGames for free

DisadvantagesBig downloads, not many games

"Freeloader is a great site which lets you download full games, which they pay for with advertising. Membership is free and you do not have to give any personal details like your address or phone number. Basically, you click on advertising banners and get credits which you can use to download games like Grand Theft Auto or Spec Ops. Bigger games are split up into different episodes which are usually a couple of megabytes in size. At the moment ..." Read review

Good selection of free games for download

AdvantagesFree games - need I say more?

DisadvantagesThe site can be slow loading, and the adverts can be tedious.

"...up with for a freebie? Freeloader.com offers games to download or play online for free. The only condition on this is that the user views advertisements to earn 'credits' which are then swapped for games. Each game is split into 'episodes' which are released periodically, and each episode costs roughly 15-25 credits. Freeloader.com give each new user 500 credits to use, and you can potentially earn 5 more for every advert you click on whilst logged ..." Read review

Download at Freeload!

AdvantagesIt's young, free and simple!

DisadvantagesNeeds more games (but they're coming!)

"Freeloader is exactly that...there's no catch! All you do is register, and then download the games on offer.It's that simple. There's the usual Shockwave games, that don't really amount to much; some "exclusive" games and (as yet)a few commercial games. (there are more promised). The commercial games are in some cases, best sellers...Grand Theft Auto; Hidden and Dangerous, Spec Ops etc. For absolutely no fee, these represent a great offer. All ..." Read review

Hid + Dangerous, GTA - Free!!

AdvantagesFree games - obviously

DisadvantagesRubbish games mixed in

"What an excellent idea for a site - you answer 3 questions - look at 3 adverts - and you get a free game. As well as this - it's legal!. I had been considering buying H+D - but now i can freeload it!. I have to say, i don't think the site design is that great - and they mix in some tacky rubbish in with the good games, but if you know what you're looking for - you'll love this site. You get credits - and you spend them on games. You have ..." Read review

Do you want free games?

AdvantagesFree Games

DisadvantagesHard to get a response from the site

"Freeload.com says that you get free games by downloading from their site (I don't have totally free ISP so I wouldn't say totally free of charge) All you need to do is view some ads and off you go. I have expirenced various problems with responce time of the site. I have a lot of misgivins of the right of the site to redistribute theses games, I have found no reassurance that you are legally downloading these games, as the games are not to my personal ..."

Disadvantagesytres

"There is certainly plenty happening in small caps generally. Among old favourites, Oxford Biomedica (OXB) (originally tipped in the Growth Company Investor Weekly Digest at 13p in November 1998) has come alive again on news of further gene discoveries and interim figures showing a host of advances with various drug projects. The shares are at 90p. Medisys (MDY) has popped up a few coppers to 127p amid vague bid rumours (I first tipped it two years ..." Read review

Freeloader.com its free & ITS LEGAL

Advantagesfull free games!

Disadvantagessome games take a while to download completely, you can only download a limited amount of games (Credits system)

"Freeloader.com is a great site well sort checking out especially if you are on of those people who has a spare ten pound note and goes straight down to your local games shops and buys one of the "classic" games in other words games that were good a year back but just don't compare to the latest titles. Now when you have that spare ten pound put it in a jar and visit freeloader.com where you can download those "classic" games for free if you've ever ..." Read review

GTA 4 FREE

AdvantagesFREE games, Full version games, quick download

Disadvantagesdownload in episodes, have to view ads for more credits and visit sites if you want even more credits.

"When I first heard about this site I did not believe that you could download the full version of GTA completely FREE. I thought it would be a demo but NO its the full game with all the levels but the only thing that bothered me was having to log on again to get the next 'episode' of the game. But it was worth it because I got it for FREE and soon they will put up more games for FREE download along with the current selection of games. I am now addicted ..." Read review

Are you a Freeloader.com?

AdvantagesFree games

DisadvantagesNothing.

"Free software on the internet to download? Surely that's illegal! But no, Freeloader uses a credit based system where you earn points by clicking on the ad banners on the site. When you have enough credits for the game you want, cash them in and download it. There are some gems amounst the dross including Grand Theft Auto, Hidden and Dangerous and the classic Beneath A Steal Sky. There are some not-so-good games there as well as some fun but basic ..."

not as easy as you think

Advantagesgenuinely free software, including modern titles

Disadvantagespray it downloads properly - have to sit and supervise

"Freeloader.com lets you download free games off the site, including big arceade / adventure games that are in the shops now. How does it do this? By registering adn collecting points. Each game is worth so many points, the larger and newer the game, the more points you need. When you have enough points, you simply download teh games in small packets, which then combine with the final download. Sounds simple. Well it is in theory. But I've found you ..." Read review
