Hogs of War is the only game I have ever been hooked on, and this one I have played over and over more times than I can think of! The first time I sat down to play it, I ended up spending 11 straight hours, and for what it's worth, I have never been huge on games, I would get into them for a bit, and move on but this is the best game I have ever played, and even when finished it's something I start playing all over again.
The gist of the game; it's war time, islands are being occupied by enemy pig forces, and you have to pick a team of five pigs, assign them different weapons, as there are choices of sniper, bombardier, medic and my favorite the engineer. When you complete each island mission ( there are 5 islands and 5 missions on each) the levels get harder and more money is awarded for beating the enemy, if you don't lose any of your team mates, extra rewards are given and rank can be increased. When money is given at the end of each win, you can raise your pigs in rank, give them more life points and increase their weapons, making for more fun!
The graphics are simple and fun some action is on forests, deserts, ice patches and trenches, some is at night and most during the day, there is no incoherent surroundings, no struggles of figuring what to do next and most of all the games it insanely fun to play. The team I play and the enemies each have life points, and each weapon takes those points away. It's a bit of math, but extremely easy and makes for some fun tactics and tricks to be played on the opposing forces. Also the pig soldiers say the funniest things, based on what nationality you choose and play against, I have laughed hard at some of the jokes.
Least but not least, when two players mode is engaged, the game options change, there are all new levels to beat, and they are very fun! I am always looking forward to playing against some of my friends or even the computer to beat them at these adorable challenges. I love the game, and can't imagine not playing it over and over.
