Hoard is quite frankly a silly amount of fun. Taking control of a dragon, the player is tasked with collecting as much gold as possible, whilst playing on the fear of the people and the economies of the nearby villages. In short, Hoard is a game you can pick up, play for 10 minutes, and almost always walk away from it with a smile on your face.

If the multiplayer option sounds like it's more your thing, then get HOARD on the PS3, where more people will already likely have a copy of the game to begin with. If you just want something fun to do on breaks or you just want something fun to do with down time, grab HOARD for the PSP, it's portable and enjoyable and can keep gamers entertained for a few minutes or a few hours. The Steam version isn't bad at all featuring the best graphics of all, but the PS3 version is best for multiplayer and the PSP version is my favorite version without a doubt.

I got a little frustrated here and there and I still think dragons should be able to move while breathing fire, but besides a few minor drawbacks, Hoard is a colorful, engaging little adventure. Dragons rule, damnit.

With its immediate sense of fun and slick controls, Hoard hooks you in right from the off - whether in campaign mode or competitive multiplayer - and it's also a formula with a surprising amount of depth. Terrorise a town without laying it to waste, and the populace will actually send you gold for your merciful benevolence. Harsh but fair, just how we like it.

Hoard is a refreshing little multiplayer game that lets you be the bad guy for a change. Designed for short matches against other players it's a somewhat limited experience, but burninating the countryside is definitely a lot of fun.

PlayStation 3GameSpot
This is one of those games that is best played with friends on headsets, and you can also enjoy random matches online as you drain the hoards of your opponents and climb the leaderboards. Indeed, with its simple gameplay mechanics that usually only require the DualShock's two analog sticks and an unrelenting dedication to gameplay over even the faintest pretense of story, Hoard is kept from greatness only by its unsuitable soundtrack, lack of visual variation, and a comparatively lackluster single-player mode. You might also cringe at its slightly expensive $14.99 price tag, which seems a touch too high for the fairly simple experience that it offers. For players seeking a good online multiplayer game for the PlayStation 3, however, Hoard will be a welcome addition to their own hoard of games.

Hoard isn't a deep game that you'll spend hours digging in to; it's a quick and fun game that you'll spend hours playing what you think is your last game. Yes, it's addictive, and yes it's fun to be a badass dragon, but the game loses it's steam quickly thanks to a series of game crippling bugs that does everything from show debug text to bringing the entire game to a screeching halt. When the developers at Big Sandwich games release the inevitable patch, Hoard will be an instant recommendation, but for now it's best to be cautious.

Overall, HOARD is a fun little action game (with a dash of strategy) that truly shines when played with other people. The fairly low price tag will definitely give you your money’s worth. If the game had just a tad bit more to offer in terms of gameplay, it’d instantly go from being reasonably priced to an absolute steal. Until then, we can keep our fingers crossed for future DLCs.

Now, the real question is... do you have a gamepad that works with the game? If so, fork over the $10 today! It's quite fun when you get down to it. However, if you don't.... stay away. Stay far away. There aren't any excuses for a bug that can potentially reset your computer while you're playing and there aren't any excuses for having no alternative control schemes to the bugged one. It can be managed, but it's a simple fact that you'll constantly get annoyed along the way.
