Them's Fightin' Herds Reviews
Them’s Fightin’ Herds is a fantastic value for its price. Boasting great network play and a solid amount of offline content with more story mode updates and a season pass of new characters on the way. I love the art direction and the characters, who are voiced by some awesome talent and have bits and pieces of personality from the show it took inspiration from, but still having enough to differentiate themselves by game mechanics and aesthetics. Oh, and I love the music—just the right amount of synth and instrumentation that match their stages really well. This is a fighting game I can easily recommend to just about anyone.
Almost everything that’s currently present in Them’s Fightin’ Herds is excellent, with the exception of a few platforming sections in the story mode. The issue is that even two years after initially releasing on PC, it still doesn’t feel like a completed game, nor have the developers been clear about when that will change. If what’s here sounds like enough for you, though, or you’re a big My Little Pony fan, you should absolutely give Them’s Fightin’ Herds a chance.
Finally Them's Fightin' Herds is available on consoles and proves to be a very competent fighting game. Although its reduced cast and the inconvenient challenges of the story mode weigh a little, the concept of fights between quadrupeds, the strong charisma, the good variety of modes and the unique campaign concept draw attention within the genre and make it a title worth checking out.

Them’s Fightin’ Herds delivers a unique and varied cast of characters that promise a high-caliber fighting game experience. If all you are looking for is that, I cannot find any reason not to recommend this game. However, if you, like me, struggle with playing online and need an enjoyable and robust single-player offering to get into the genre, this game will likely fall short for you.
Them’s Fightin’ Herds is a fine surprise, and, more importantly, it is a fine game. It reminds me a lot of the original BlazBlue, which had a relatively small cast, but it kept building on it’s core design and amazing potential.
Them’s Fightin’ Herds has a fantastic foundation, but that foundation is unfinished. Launching with a scant seven characters would be easier to swallow if the promising story mode had more than one completed chapter.
