About: He who controls the swill controls the universe. It really is that simple.

An untapped supply of swill has just been discovered on the uninhabited archipelago of Saustralasia deep in the South Pigsific Ocean, and every Hog Nation wants the land as its own. Gone are the days of scratching around for drips of swill. Saustralasia’s 25 regions are drenched in the stuff, and the only way to ensure that no one else gets their filthy trotters on the delicious swill is WAR!

Your task will not be an easy one. To successfully conquer and exploit Saustralasia you will need to seek and destroy the enemy across each and every one of the archipelago’s six islands, from Hogshead all the way down to Arstria. Our resources are limited, you have to maintain a rather small army, but with every victory on the field of battle, your swine will learn more skills and acquire the use of a wider range of weaponry.

There will be slaughter and butchery. Your job will be to bring victory to your chosen nation, to save your own bacon and make a meal of your enemies. With victory comes great reward. So great in fact that your brave boars will be as happy as pigs in… well, you get the idea.

Explosive 25 level single player campaign and an addictive online multiplayer mode for up to four players.Arm your hogs to the teeth with a choice of 40 different weapons including sniper rifles, bazookas, mines, jet-packs, cluster grenades, and tanks.Fight for one of six different pig armies, each one based on a real nation from the First World War-era: Great Britain, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, or the USA.Customize your squad as you promote your hogs from Grunt to Officer in one of four different classes - Heavy Weapons, Medic, Espionage, or Engineer.Cheeky sense of humor brought to life by the vocal talents of renowned British comedian Rik Mayall.

Hogs of War reviews and comments

I find Hogs of War or (Front Pigs PS-ONE Version) a very fun Strategy game. But there are a few big Differences when you compare this Game Hogs of War to (PS-ONE Version). e.g. the Degree of Difficulty. If someone has played The PS-ONE Version, they know what I mean. And in addition, I think it's a pity that Hogs of War doesn't exist in German. But otherwise this is a pretty cool cult game

-German Synchro lacks-GAME has MapErm-AI doesn't move-runs without a Community Patch at all on Windows 10-Multiplayer misdisplay I bought it at 9.99 and tested it too late at the time so I couldn't refund any More Recourse. Too bad for the Money. If you want to relive the cult game of that time, it's best to get the Original CD and emulate it on your PC. It works without Bugs:-)

The Game belongs to one of my Absolute favorite kindheits Games ... When I saw that this Game is there at Steam and even on Offer!! I had to get it! ... Unfortunately a PURE disillusion ... Don't make it work on my Laptop (Win 8) .. OK is an Acquaintance of error like I could read it on the Net ... So I go to my Computer (Win 7) and OMG it works out *-* ... At least for a moment ... After 6 Missions in The single Player I wanted to take a short break, so I finished the Game and took my Break ... When I set it up again after about 2 hours (to Continue Daddling my Mission) ... gone.. My Progress = away my Settings = away EVERYTHING WAY!!! Why?? Then my Explorer still crashes quite frequently when I start it etc ... FALLS it folds buged the Sound TOTAL rum and everything ... Unfortunately not the "Front Pig" that I zoped as a kind ... Too BAD REALLY ...

Phew what a Birth the Game has been here to get to run on a modern Windows 10 PC. Even if the Description says that it does not run under Win 10, it can get to run on Windows 10. The Question you should ask yourself is whether this is worth it or whether you should not try to get to the Original PS1. Even if the Game to run, you unfortunately get a rather loveless Version of Front Pigs here. The Music is badly mixed (Music often too loud, agree too quietly) The CPU doesn't move (only when Jetpack is equipped) and there's generally something missing from the Faliere/joke of the PS1 Original Version. In General, I would recommend the PC Version only for the MP. Whether one is Fun in the SP depends entirely on whether you know the PS1 Version or not. Everyone needs to know for themselves whether this is worth a €5to. It Is far less than the PS1 Version which has white white Prices on Ebay.
