    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.

    The problem with this game is... nothing. Everyone whining that it's not funny - well you don't get the sense of humor the game presents.The problem with this game is... nothing. Everyone whining that it's not funny - well you don't get the sense of humor the game presents. Saying it's only worth 10 minutes, well you haven't explored everything. I see plenty of youtubers play for 30+ minutes, and at the end of that they're still having a great laugh. You don't need to be so uptight and butthurt about a video game because it doesn't have cutting edge graphics or teeth-gritting action. IT'S A GOAT SIMULATOR, WHAT DID YOU EXPECT PEOPLE? Expand

A playground for the imagination flinging people into crowds, barreling through penthouses sending the top floor partygoers plummeting into traffic and getting the gas tank launch just right with a car in tow for an exquisite display of "what the f***" sailing through the air across the map through a roller coaster and into the sea.

Glitches galore, as far as the eye can see. You play as a goat doing impossible crap that not even a psychotic human being could accomplish. Do tricks, get points. Kill people, get points. Take a trip to demonic goat hell, get points. It's like GTA, but goatified. Overall, it's a solid game, but you probably won't enjoy it for a long time. Expand

I really don't mind the bugs (they are intended to be there), but the game is limited to it's core design and gets really repetitive and boring.

    It doesn't worth it's 10 dollar price. Buy it when it's like 1 or 2, laugh a lot (in the short amont of time you will enjoy the game) and uninstall it, cause you won't come back for more.
