That's a PS1 game I think? Should be able to get hold of a copy on eBay though....

It does look to be a Playstation 1 - had a quick look on ebay, looks to be quite collectable, might need to break open the piggy bank Dave :default_icon_e_biggrin:

Great memories of playing Hogs of War, it was sooooo funny, but as suggested, I'm not sure it was released on PS2, I may be wrong though, I was generally in a really bad way back then.

Trying to cast my mind back I'm sure it was on PS1, but I may well be wrong (have I mentioned that already?) :default_biggrin:

You can't beat an exploding.....kitten in your hand Mr Nog, if you know how to diffuse it of course.

 Have you had a play with Mrs Nog yet? Do you like it?

I'm still up for taking her on if she is struggling to find someone who poses a challenge.

Grace gets very frustrated at how much of a challenge I can be :default_smiley-angelic002:

the gamer of the family tells me it is a pS1 game that may work on a PS2 (but also may not)

I see Mr Nog is also getting a makeover.

Trying to confuse us?

Now you've said it, I seem to think you may be correct G, I think the PS2 was backwards compatible but it depended on the model.

I'm sorry i haven't used a tolkein pic this time, but I do get easily bored Helen, and let's face it no one wants to see my ugly mug :default_biggrin:

I think Mr Nog has been displaying his "Broadband Sunrise" for a while though, despite how ever many people ask him to put the ruddy thing away :default_smiley-angelic002:

I'm sorry Helen, you know I would never intend any offense to you lovely ladies.

I only meant weaker half in terms of how the female half of a relationship is inferior in every way to the male half :default_smiley-angelic002:

A bit a preying mantis? And I don't think that it's the only female of the species that eats the male counterpart after sex......:default_norty:

A number of species of spider too I believe, but seeing as Mr Nog is still here I'm assuming you aren't one of the cannibal species Mrs Nog :default_smiley-angelic002:

Don't worry Helen, Jay will suffer for this :default_norty: Any man who thinks we're the weaker sex, just try pulling the duvet over your side of the bed :default_biggrin:

What a naughty bunch you are but the best all the same and I don't ruddy snore

Seeing as I'm always hot that's not a problem, but if I did want the duvet I'd just take the ruddy duvet. And if it meant you got rolled out of bed and ended up on the floor maybe you'd have learnt a valuable lesson :default_hiding:

On topic (yes me on topic :default_biggrin:)

I've just found Hogs of War on sale for between 5 and 15 quid on Shpock.

Don't know where you live Dave but you may have more luck on there.

Mostly, but yeah the later hardware revisions had some issues. They even had issues with some PS2 games.

Doesn't look like that particular game is one of the problem ones...

Hogs of War was PS1, though early PS2's are backwards compatible to all games. Some Later PS2, especially PS2 slims have limited compatibility. 

I believe it is also available (or was) on the Steam platform for PC which might be an option?

Hogs of War II was planned for PS2 but Infogrammes went bust before it was released. Atari aquired all their software rights but canned HOW II before it ever released. For the same reason it never (to the best of my knowledge) reach the PS2 online store.
