    It's more than stupid, it's so moronic it becomes something almost sublime. [Issue#249, p.66]

    As long as the modders keep doing what they do best, it’s possible to never run out of things for your goat to destroy.

    I can’t bring myself to award Goat Simulator an outstanding score because it’s not an outstanding game, by its own admission. There are many, many things wrong with it. Yet I can’t also deny the fact that it’s enjoyable – it’s funny, it’s a ridiculous ride and it (obviously) doesn’t purport to be anything other than a bit of a laugh.
  4. Does this game deserve a 10/10 because of its ingenuity, or should it be scored a 7/10 because it lacks modes and variation? Is it a 5/10 because it’s not really a game? Or is it a 0/10 because, really, who would pay good money just to run around as a digital goat? In the end, Coffee Stain Studios delivered what it promised, a ridiculous game featuring goats and explosions.

    It might have started off as a joke, but the funny thing about Goat Simulator is that it’s a much better game than it has any right to be.

    Goat Simulator is meant as a joke, and you can tell. It's hilarious, for an hour. When you've seen everything there won't be much to do and the bugs and controls will soon simply annoy instead of delight.

    This is a 10-minute laugh, if that – the kind of thing that's here today, gone tomorrow, but for a brief moment in history is the talk of Shoreditch and Twitter. It's the gaming equivalent of a novelty single and even the developers, to give credit where it's due, recommend you don't buy it. Listen to them.

    This game has truly given me a deeper perspective of life. It has it all, a magnificent story that speaks straight to your heart, stunning voice acting (baaaa), and a wide room for exploration. Expand

    I'm not going to make a satire review, so far, as an initial release, it's fun for about a few about hours, but it is incredibly enjoyable to see all the destruction you can make with just being a **** goat, and seeing the scores you can make can make you get a warm fuzzy feeling of accomplishment. But until more people come out with more maps and mutators on the Steam Workshop, it's only fun for a few hours, so if I were you, wait for about another month or so for more people to come out with more mods so that way it'll be more enjoyable then.

    The game is OK and it has a pretty good physic engine but the game is too short and it will only take about 3 hours until you get board. But I still enjoyed the game. Expand

    "Goat Simulator" is quite entertaining (For the first fifteen minutes that you play it). The ridiculous mechanics and stupid ragdoll physics had me laughing for a very short span of time, until the game's lack of content began to reveal the fact that the whole game is just a broken, monotonous mess.
