    A brilliant puzzle game with a truly unique feel and gameplay mechanic.
  2. Those of you who like wacky and lighthearted gaming will be pleased.
  3. Fun and addictive, this one will keep you playing for hours. It's been a long time since I've found a puzzle game I enjoyed as much as "Lemmings," but Empire has a winner here.
  4. Who'd have thought you could have this much fun with barnyard animals.
  5. A becoming and fun game. It can irritate you when trying to solve the same level 20-30 times in a row, but the funny little sheep are always there to give you a good laugh and make you think harder about saving that flock.
  6. An impressive package, not only in that it delivers a highly addictive and well-executed game, but also because the premise is simple, well thought out and executed flawlessly.
  7. While Sheep isn't a good choice for the die-hard fragger on your shopping list, puzzle fans, Monty Python lovers, bad punsters, and anyone with fond memories of Lemmings will find hours of challenging fun within this appealingly ridiculous game.

    Definitely not a classic, but it's a fun way to kill time - and sheep. [Feb 2001, p.54]

    Tricky levels keep the difficulty level high, though one run through the game should be enough for anybody.
  10. Hell...the levels are fun, as well as the bonus levels, but when the game ends there is a very empty feeling. If not more levels included there should at least be a level editor.

    This game is just plain fun to play even if you are not a small kid. The concept alone is worth the four dollars I paid for it.

    If I were a small kid, I would have give it a perfect 10.
