  1. If you love the Looney Tune cartoons, you will love each level of this game.
  2. Those who have always wanted to have the chance to star in a real life cartoon should look no further than this fun little game. The cult starts here!

    Certainly nothing you will play through a second time. Still, it's good for a lot of laughs and is a lot of fun to play.
  4. I’m a fan of the cartoon series, and this program gives a quick, "don’t take me serious" wink at those who grew up with those great cartoons.
  5. Oddly enough, the game could be considered the kid's version of "Metal Gear Solid." Replace the soldiers with Sam, and the weapons with blow dryers and lettuce heads and you get the idea.
  6. As video games go, Sheep Raider is neither spectacular, nor challenging, nor interesting.
  7. This has more invention and genuine touches of class than the majority of PS2 games have in total.
  8. An amusing and worthwhile diversion.
  9. It's this inflexibility to allow for player experimentation that keeps "Sheep Raider" into the realm of very good PSOne game, instead of the near-classic status.

    I'm sure you'll find the gameplay to be quite interesting and thoroughly entertaining. [Nov 2001, p.123]

    Falls flat due to its mediocre graphics, sticky control and awkward camera. [Dec 2001, p.172]
  12. One of the best PSone games to hit the shelves in a while, and if it wasn’t for the virtually unclimable spike in the difficulty curve halfway through it would easily rank as among the best PSone games ever made.

The Looney Tunes setting was lovely with most of its characters making an appearance, but what made me love this game were the beautiful puzzles that were challenging and fun. The main objective of each level is to steal sheep from Sam Sheep Dogs herd without him seeing you. You will then have to bring the stolen sheep back to a specific area. Full Review »

It's not often that you see a puzzle platformer, and not only is this game an excellent one, but it also excels in the good ol' looney toons humor execution. And the environments are unique, and, most importantly, the puzzle make sense. The movement is smooth, so the platforming is also very well done. I'd recommend this game to everyone who likes Puzzles, platformers, Looney Toons, and just plain funny games :D Full Review »
