    Surgeon Simulator used to be my go-to silly, cooperative, party-friendly game. I’m glad to add Goat Simulator to that list.

    Great fun, especially with friends, Goat Simulator is so out there and different to the norm that you can't help but have a good time, and laugh along with it.

    You won't be feeding from this particular trough for all that long, but if you're willing to splurge on a headache-inducing afternoon of idiotic entertainment, then – incredibly – there are worse options out there.

    Goat Simulator is again the champion of craziness, even on PlayStation systems. Compared with other editions of the game, nothing has changed: it is fun and entertaining, despite many limitations and flaws.

    You’d think a game about wanton destruction with split-screen co-op would offer lots of content and fun times to chew on. Sadly, that cud turns to crud in a few short hours. [November 2015, p74]

    Goat Simulator is unapologetically absurd but fails to meaningfully give players anything to do beyond the occasional ridiculous party trick.

    Even if the price was right (and that price is free, regardless of platform) Goat Simulator is not worth playing. It's a game designed for YouTube, not the average consumer. Reward this shrewd business decision by not buying this game and just watching some clips online instead.

Plenty of open world exploration and crazy stuff to find around every corner. its like GTA but without actually killing people and crappy stories. Now just need to be able to drive the vehicles and it would be perfect. Expand

    One of the funniest games ever. It's a super funny experience and it isn't very expensive. Completely recommendable.

It's a lot of fun to just mess around and have fun with. It has a lot of hidden depth and a ton of fun things to do! I have no complaints because I went in knowing what I was getting, a $10 sandbox to have fun with. (VR Mode does not work with PSVR by the way) Expand

    I guess it's a game... Good job to the devs tho, getting people to buy soemthing an intern did on his lunch break is pretty impressive.

    Objectiveless toy box gameplay meant for streamers to yell over. I knew I probably wouldn't like it as I don't like these types of games.

    I would understand this game's appeal if the visuals were at any point interesting or if the gameplay was ever fluid enough to make the stuntsI would understand this game's appeal if the visuals were at any point interesting or if the gameplay was ever fluid enough to make the stunts fun and satisfying to perform.

    The maps are horrible, the game is glitchy, void of anything to do at all. The one thing it has going for it is ultimately ruined by it's poor performance.

    I can not possibly see anyone having fun with this game unless they are getting thousands of views for doing it, or if they are children.
