  • Summary: 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.

  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.

    The magical animal that provides us with pork, ham, bacon and sausage now gives us a goodly bit of amusement.

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

    Although Hogs is far from state-of-the-art, it's definitely fun and worth a look if you want something different and smart.
  5. 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."
  6. Pork is generally one of my favorite foods, but it doesn't seem to translate to much of a game.
  7. 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.

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

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. Expand

    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.

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 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.

    Was the only reason people actually enjoyed this garbage was because it starred pigs? I hated this game, hated it. Terrible gameplay (Broken 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 hell." With this game, it sure is. Collapse
