    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!

    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 and you'll earn even more points!

    Game Contains: Goat Simulator, Goat MMO Simulator, Goat Simulator: GoatZ, Goat Simulator: Payday and Goat Simulator: Waste of Space.

    Goat Simulator: The GOATY is a definitive edition of Coffee Stain Studios' slapstick destruction simulator, and as such, it's a mixed bag that varies wildly in quality. The base modes are fun for about five minutes, and there's only so much entertainment to be had from launching a farm animal from the top of a roller coaster before it becomes dull. The Waste of Space and MMO Simulator expansions are decent fun in their own right thanks to a greater sense of structure, but the purposefully crude mechanics will start to grate after a while. This is a package that arguably works best as a smartphone proposition for when you've got five minutes to kill; when placed on a proper console with many more worthy uses of your time, it all starts to feel more than a little inconsequential.

    A trash game that had promise. Looks like a games executive got his kid to make a game in his spare time and published it.

    Great Game with good goals. That is really all I can say without making myself look like an idiot.

We all just keep coming back to it over about a year. It's not played all the time, but it's never really forgotten for long either.
    There's nothing stressful or hard about playing it. No ground-breaking cinematic narrative. Just lots of silly fun.

    Its just an extremely fun rag doll game, just go around the world and cause chaos. May appeal to people who like doing stuff like that in GTAIts just an extremely fun rag doll game, just go around the world and cause chaos. May appeal to people who like doing stuff like that in GTA but it's not nearly as deep. Check it out, its just chaotic fun, and it works perfectly on switch, a platform which I think very well suits a game like this which is most fun to just casually take out, which fits the portable console.

    Goat Simulator is a fun little diversion in short bursts, but its absurd premise and deliberately janky presentation and controls wear thinGoat Simulator is a fun little diversion in short bursts, but its absurd premise and deliberately janky presentation and controls wear thin after a while. Considering this started as an April Fool's joke, it's quite an accomplishment; it just isn't as enjoyable on Nintendo Switch as I'd hoped. Expand

    Disappointing. Was hoping to truly simulate a goat. They could have done a lot with this game to make it fun, but the zombies, poison breath,Disappointing. Was hoping to truly simulate a goat. They could have done a lot with this game to make it fun, but the zombies, poison breath, and creating shooting weapons, left it disappointing. Not to mention the goat movement is terrible. 1990's quality. Strafe left/right and the goat just slides. Expand

It consistently drops to whatThis game is just bad, its fun for half an hour but the poor performane just makes it had to keep playing. It consistently drops to what looks/feels like 20fps or below on my Switch Lite making it hard to play. Don't buy this game. At most you may have a few hours of fun but don't expect much more than that, Expand
