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

    It starts of really easy but it gets harder and funnier as it goes along. You have to know your army ranks to be good at this.

    Was the only reason people actually enjoyed this garbage was because it starred pigs? I hated this game, hated it. Terrible gameplay (Broken Strategy/RPG gameplay) and controls, ugly graphics (Even for the time period), Hogs of War got practically nothing right and only served to be a game I can belittle for how awful it is. There is no fun to be had, and like people have said, "War is Was the only reason people actually enjoyed this garbage was because it starred pigs? I hated this game, hated it.

    A great game that I play through it again every few years or so. I'm a little baffled by the negative reviews, OK it looks dated and maybe the Rik Mayall voice-over isn't for everyone but the core game play is great. The single player campaign is a lot of fun and is a decent length, and the multi-player is great too.

    This game is a childhood game for me. A 3D-Styled Worms game with it's own twist of Hog, where inventory is not shared between the whole team, but each Hog has their own arsenal. Fantastic script and voice acting, but does get repetitive after a while. The game can randomly freeze on loading screens which is a bit upsetting.

    Graphics for the time of it's release were very solid and the

    Graphics for the time of it's release were very solid and the OST is fantastic.

    On a first play-through, expect this game will give at least 5 hours for the single player campaign mode and endless hours of fun with friends in the multitude of Multi-player maps.

    It's like Worms in 3D but better and more funny, with great voice acting by a.o. the late Rick Mayal. This is one of those not very known gems amongst PlayStation 1 games!

    Although Hogs is far from state-of-the-art, it's definitely fun and worth a look if you want something different and smart.
  2. 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.

    The graphics are however, pretty good, the sounds are great and the gameplay is also pretty good.
