  1. For a game so predominantly marketed towards children, the title is actually fairly challenging and enjoyable. At the lower end of the price spectrum this is a great deal for people who played the original board game and for those who fancy a quick, fun little game.

    Hurry Up Hedgehog is a decent game for the Nintendo DS that suffers from a few problems, but this board game turned portable video game has some innovative ideas that may lead to more quirky board games finding a home on the Nintendo DS.
  3. That being said, this game is worth a look, but it definitely won’t be for everyone.
  4. 50
    Hurry Up Hedgehog! is a nice little board game adaptation that offers some fun and challenge, but without a more expanded single player mode it's difficult to wholly recommend, unless you have some friends that enjoy the game too that can engage you in rounds of pit-abuse-based multiplayer.
  5. The lack of a decent explanation of the rules, the mediocre presentation and the plodding, turn-based nature of the gameplay make it one that will be too slow, lacking and dull for the majority of gamers.
  6. Indeed, the absence of physical dice rolling and being gathered around a game board with friends rather diminishes the fun to be had here.
  7. While it's not actually broken or violently offensive, Hurry Up Hedgehog! is one of the most listless bits of shovelware going. Get the original board game if you must, but give this a miss.
