  1. The character designs and architecture at work here are pure vintage Core...Special doesn't begin to tell the tale. [Apr 2002, p.46]
  2. One of the best platformers in years, which oozes charm and has both enjoyment and depth to ensure you’ll want to play it over and over again.
  3. The huge sprawling and very heavily detailed levels (which does lead to a loading issue that many people have been having) and a very ''Disney'' look accomplishes better graphics than any game that uses cel-shading.

    A great game! Lots of fun to play and beautiful to look at. I can't believe some of the bad reviews I read before I picked it up, and A great game! Lots of fun to play and beautiful to look at. I can't believe some of the bad reviews I read before I picked it up, and I'm so glad I bought it anyway. The only flaw I've found with this game, technically, is the camera. It can be a little willful. But, after upwards of 30 hours of playing, it hasn't really been a problem. A lot of the negative reviews seemed like they were coming from people who just didn't enjoy the gameplay, as a matter of personal interest, since I haven't encountered issues with any of the things mentioned (framerate, AI, character glitches, level and task layout), except, of course, for a wily camera. I hope people look past these bad reviews and check out Herdy Gerdy for themselves. It would be a shame to miss such a wonderful game because of someone elses opinion on it. Happy herding!

    Must agree with T.Tapper. I've tried a couple of times to play this game and it really sucks ass!
