    I absolutely loved Slime Rancher, from the colourful start to the bittersweet ending that literally had me sobbing—something that is quite hard for video games to achieve.

    While it moves at a frantic pace at times, it is quite relaxing and cathartic. And although sometimes repetitive, apart from those inevitable moments where the task at hand begins to wear its welcome between major expansions or discoveries, Slime Rancher is an utter, charming delight to play.

    Slime Rancher oozes personality and style, being a clear labour of love. It comes highly recommended and is sure to please young and old alike.

    Relaxing and relaxed, Slime Rancher is a funny "adventurous manager" with rather atypical traits.

    Slime Rancher successfully taps into the addictive nature of farming simulators, while managing to make the gameplay loop more engaging and instantly rewarding. Seasoned vets of the genre may find some aspects to be lacking, but if you’ve never really found the appeal in maintaining your own virtual farm – this may be the game to change your mind.

    Slime Rancher is its own enemy: everything good it offers has a counterpart of equal magnitude. However, in the end, the experience is enjoyable and, despite its notorious flaws, turns out to be a pretty fun mix of FPS, adventure and farming simulator.

    A slight and repetitive but cute farming game, Slime Rancher doesn't quite reach the heights of its sub-genre.

    For sure, this game grabbed me completely. At first, I thought it would be weird... a farm game of slimes where you collect their poop? IFor sure, this game grabbed me completely. At first, I thought it would be weird... a farm game of slimes where you collect their poop? I never thought it would be so funny and relaxing... but it is! I can't give another rate but 10. Call me weirdo, but I've played more than 90 hours at Steam, i don't know why, but I really liked it, maybe it's because it's the perfect game for who wants to play and listen a podcast while, or maybe because I keep waiting for each update to see what's the newest slime added, or maybe because this game is the best game indie I've played in mounths.

    > Simple gameplay
    >Clean audio
    >Beautiful and charming graphics
    >Periodic Updates
    >Offline (you can play during a trip, for example)

    >Can be repetitive after some time playing

    Final score: 9.7

The only problem with it is that once you beat the game, you don't have much replay ability.. Sure, you can do Rush mode, but that just isn't enough to be a perfect game. If it had more stuff to do after you beat the game, then this would be an instant 10. Expand

    Awesome game.
    It is a very good concept which got me hooked for many hours. There are many slimes to get and many places to explore.

    Although the game can get very repetitive, it still is a great and chill experience.

    Had a good time playing this. It's that type of game where you're "just gonna do this last thing" and end up playing 2 more hours than youHad a good time playing this. It's that type of game where you're "just gonna do this last thing" and end up playing 2 more hours than you planned. You're basically roaming around the world, searching for slimes to bring back to your farm. And when you've had them in your farm a certain amount of time you get money which you use to get upgrades and unlock new areas.

    Not sure why but I got serious fps drops as soon as I had a chrome page or a steam chatbox open. Extremely annoying, I never have performance issues with other games.

    Would recommend though. Very priceworthy as it goes for only 20 EUR.

Mais attention, n'allez pas amalgamer quoi que ce soit, car cela nous rappelle les heures les plus sombres de nos histoires !

    En vue subjective dans cette impéritie répétitive et très con, on se fait en tout cas vite chier dans ce truc qui devrait être réservé aux con-soles de Nintendaube. Je ne recommanderai même pas cependant ce sous-produit à nos chères têtes blondes, y compris en bas âge ou éventuellement autistes, car cette chose pourrait aggraver la situation : la mongolite céphalique peut en effet handicaper le développement des chiards pas développés.
