  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. A good game, a different game, a game that rewards those that stick with it with something plenty entertaining, but you’re going to have to strap on a pair of blinders to get there without cringing a couple times.
  3. Fun and beautiful, with gameplay every bit as fresh as its graphics. [May 2002, p.33]
  4. "Fresh, unique, light-hearted, entertaining, creative." Any of these words apply to Herdy Gerdy, but sadly so do, "Frustrating, unruly, unresponsive and premature release."
  5. It's new, it's fresh, it is ruined by a faulty camera!
  6. The animation and voice acting are really spot-on, bringing the characters to life better than many motion pictures. Unfortunately, the combination of a disorienting camera and consistently sloppy framerate go a long way towards negating Herdy Gerdy’s fun factor.
  7. An exercise in boredom and frustration.
