    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.

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

Одна из лучших инди в которые я играл. В игре чувствуется своя атмосфера, есть красивая музыка, но сильнее приятно удивляет очень красивый визуальный стиль игры и ее графика! Может быть скучно собирать ресурсы и делать декоративные вещи, но это мелочи, да и никто не заставляет. Плюс, игра получает бесплатные обновления! Всем советую! Игра подарила мне кучу веселых часов, так что поставлю ей 10, хотя возможно ее честная оценка 9/10... Но нет, она заслуживает большего! Expand

    It's a great colourful and happy game. The feral slimes zones are a bit scary tho.

The art style is charming yet clean and the surprisingly low poly count allows for great performance. The games audio is similarly clean and matches the games style. Later mechanics in the game such as slime costumes really give you a sense of progression and help push you to spend just one more hour. The game isn't for everyone, if you dislike action repetition like mining in minecraft this game can be a real turn off. For me this game is a delight to play, and will likely remain as one of those games i consistantly come back to.

    (crossing my fingers for some features to make a slime more like a pet)

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.
