  1. It's not one of those blockbuster games that everyone must have but it is a somewhat original take on a genre that continues to provide fun and entertainment.

    Prospective buyers needn't worry about the purchase, but don't count on sticking by this gal till death do you part. She's a shallow porker.
  3. With four people joining in, the number of onscreen explosions, pig-speech comments, and all-around nuttiness nearly lifts the game into the same sphere of quality as "Worms" or "Bomberman."
  4. Pork is generally one of my favorite foods, but it doesn't seem to translate to much of a game.
  5. The pig jokes get old quick and the gameplay isn't better than most other strategy games. What's left is an average playing game that winds up making you feel like a complete ham.
  6. CNET Gamecenter
    Although Hogs is far from state-of-the-art, it's definitely fun and worth a look if you want something different and smart.
  7. Da Gameboyz
    The graphics are however, pretty good, the sounds are great and the gameplay is also pretty good.
  8. Daily Radar
    The magical animal that provides us with pork, ham, bacon and sausage now gives us a goodly bit of amusement.
  9. A good one-player game but as necessary as a bacon sarnie on a cold morning in multiplayer. If you liked "Worms," you'll love this.
  10. Crude presentation and lackluster humor can't save this game from the trough.

    Underrated Classic. Quite funny and really well thought out. Better than Worms etc. Highly recommended.

    State of the art! Pigs never seen to loose their sense of humor! Hard but fun. When is HOW 2 coming out?
