    Goat Simulator is the latest in goat simulation technology, bringing next-gen goat simulation to YOU. You no longer have to fantasize about being a goat, your dreams have finally come true! WASD to write history.

    Gameplay-wise, Goat Simulator is all about causing as much destruction as you possibly can as a goat. It has been compared to an old-school skating game, except instead of being a skater, you're a goat, and instead of doing tricks, you wreck stuff. Destroy things with style, such as doing a backflip while headbutting a bucket through a window, and you'll earn even more points! Or you could just give Steam Workshop a spin and create your own goats, levels, missions, and more! When it comes to goats, not even the sky is the limit, as you can probably just bug through it and crash the game.

    Disclaimer: Goat Simulator is a completely stupid game and, to be honest, you should probably spend your money on something else, such as a hula hoop, a pile of bricks, or maybe pool your money together with your friends and buy a real goat.

    It's a lot of fun, just without purpose or longevity, but watching goats flying through the air was worth the 5 bucks.

    In this game you can be a goat. With a jetpack. And earn a Michael Bay achievement if you blow up stuff. I really don’t think I need to be more specific (and persuasive) than that.

    It's not perfect, but that's sort of the point. Goat Simulator is one-note and ridiculous, but it does it very well.

    Goat Simulator is indeed a good laugh, but it's also a game that you will be probably tired of after just a couple of hours.

    There are plenty of other games that are cheaper, or free, that can deliver a much more polished and rewarding experience. But if you’re in the market for a game that is absurd in every way imaginable, you can’t go wrong with Goat Simulator.

    Unleash chaos as a grumpy goat in this humorous but short-lived casual game.

    Okay, this is a great game. It will not provide you with 40+ hours of gameplay, but it is worth owning. If you actually make an attempt to runOkay, this is a great game. It will not provide you with 40+ hours of gameplay, but it is worth owning. If you actually make an attempt to run though challenges and gain some achievements, earn more rewards and features, it certainly extends your gameplay a bit. The bugs mentioned as a major aspect of the game are quite enjoyable to watch. Adding a slow-motion button and camera option to save gameplay highlights are certainly a plus. I've yet to come across anything that is particularly worth mentioning that adds any negative aspects. The controls are certainly nothing worth complaining about. You either know how to use a virtual joystick in a TPS, or you don't. Goat Sim's controls are quite suitable. I didn't rate this game a 9-or-10 out of 10 because its replay value/story content/visual fidelity don't stand up against Triple A games that are console-defining and award-winning. Goat Simulator lacks perfect polish in those regards, and are barely worth mentioning beside the wacky, entertaining experiences the gameplay offers. However, it deserves an 8, and I am proud to own this ridiculous, sinfully enjoyable game. Expand
