Almost all of Gamehippo's reviewers are completely biased against klik products, it's painfully obvious when you read the forums. Mechalord seems to be the only one who isn't majorly biased.
And I agree with Radix, most of the review crew do seem like complete morons when you read their reviews and then play the games. Gendo was doin pretty good job, though he was falling victim to the "everything is average" problem that alot of newbie reviews tend to fall into.
I just wasted a day with Elasto Mania. Can anyone tell me how to beat levels 7, 9, 11, 13? You get 3 skips, i skipped 7, 9, 11, and I cant get past 13. Really good game, i wish the action was faster though.
Steve Zissou: Anne-Marie, do all the interns get Glocks?
Gamehippo sux. HOTU sucks. Heck, almost all the freeware sites suck. Few if any ever mention the good shareware/freeware ones, like Liero, Conquest of Elysium, Titans of Steel (freeware), that Arena game, etc, etc. Took me a lot of wasted youth to find them..

Hex Workshop, I think. People had already figured out how to do it, there just weren't any apps for it yet.
Actually I think I did most of the AvP weapons mod in leiro toolkit or whatever it's called. They're all really glitchy.
Pixelships - An excellent side scrolling shooter with 160 ships, It may not be too difficult, but the concept is very interesting.
Space Fortress - It may look like a standard shooter, but if you pay attention, it's much more than that! There are tons of systems which you must manage.
Dark Disciples - A very good RPG. The graphics and the combat system may not be so good, but the puzzles are more than excellent and are well worth your time.
Jump 'n Bump - A hillarious game. You can only play it in multyplayer and on the same computer but it's an "excellent game, fun with two players, hectic with three and utterly chaotic with four".
