  1. Flock! has a few quirks that some players may not fully appreciate, but this is the type of high-caliber title we'd like to see more of on PC.
  2. This game is good. It had a lot of potential and succeeded on a few fronts.
  3. Perhaps Flock's cost is too expensive for it’s real value, but those who are looking for new puzzles will enjoy this new game. A better multiplayer mode and a greater variety of challenges would have provided an unforgettable game.
  4. Corralling livestock is a fun new way to solve puzzles, but some agitating quirks will push the impatient away.

    Flock is designed to not be smooth or elegant, and the herky jerky mechanics of guiding animals/stopping to pick up stragglers/guiding animals/stopping to pick up stragglers doesn't make me want to follow the herd.
  6. Flock! is a game with an endearing presentation but it's sadly followed by incredibly weak execution in the core gameplay, especially in the offering of campaign levels.
  7. Counting sheep may send you to sleep, but abducting sheep is much more exciting. Playing an alien, you need to abduct animals like sheep, cows, chickens or pigs while avoiding obstacles or hungry wolves. There are 50 levels and a simple editor to create your own ones.
  8. Don’t look for great accomplishments and fresh ideas in Flock!. It’s foolish to expect something revolutionary from critters that gave rise to the word “mutton-head”.
  9. It's all a bit sad really. Flock! is an enjoyable game when it all works, but it's far too easy to encounter one of its many soul destroying problems that'll make you wish you were playing something else. It's certainly something quite unique on the current crop of systems, but that doesn't stop if from being a disappointment.
  10. A great idea with some impressive physics, but soon becomes a chore.
  11. Frustrating controls. [July 2009, p.70]
  12. The puzzles are mediocre, the controls are too sluggish, the animal behaviour too abstract and the humour either non-existent or gratifyingly dad-like. [June 2009, p.101]

    Just isn't much fun. At first it's interesting, but you get bored real quick after about 20 levels.
