    Untitled Goose Game is the most charmingly misanthropic game that has ever been created - and that's something I didn't even think was possible.

    Untitled Goose Game is a well-crafted hijinks simulator which captures whimsical misadventures of a bird just being a real prick for no real reason. While the game is short, it fits nicely on the ‘doesn’t overstay its welcome’ shelf, meaning it’s simple to play through in an evening. Mechanics are easy to learn (button inputs can be customised) and the stealth is light on strategy. But what’s ultimately delivered is a neat little package of an open sandbox where you can run amok without consequences to great, maniacal effect.

    Untitled Goose Game‘s consistent, simple themes are not dull by any stretch. In fact, the entire basis of the game revels in its simplicity, making this title easy to pick up, enjoy, and have a few laughs along the way. Completing one list of tasks left me yearning for the next list of hilarious assignments as I waddled to the next area. The only drawback to the game’s simplicity is that replayability is likely not in the cards once you’ve experienced all the quirky scenarios it has to offer. Still, Untitled Goose Game is great fun and completely worth its value for that one experience.

    Video games have made me a god, a superhero, and a savior of planets, but rarely have I felt more powerful than in Untitled Goose Game. Being given control of this feathered menace and armed with a checklist of hilarious, dickish tasks to complete is some of the most fun I’ve had with a game all year. My only real complaint is its fairly short runtime – I would have gladly spent hours longer goosing around. But even still, the charming design of its world and the clever challenges within it had me laughing, smiling, and eagerly honking the whole way through.

    There’s something absolutely delightful about Untitled Goose Game’s harmless havoc. The game may be short, but it’s a memorable experience that’s worth a look if you’re in need of a good laugh.

    Untitled Goose Game is a game about being a bully, but an adorable one. As a pesky goose, you honk, waddle, and drive human beings nuts—I assume as real-life geese do. The occasional frustrating task barely holds back Untitled Goose Game when it's at its best: where you're setting up elaborate (or not) situations to annoy people and ruin their day.

    Untitled Goose Game is a delightful experimentation which delivers laugh after laugh, ruining the daily life of poor humans. Unfortunately, the fun stops way too quick after a very few streets corners, leaving the player thinking what this clever but unfinished business might have been.

    One of the funniest games I ever played, with slapstick humor, great graphics, decent controls and good music!

It is the pinnacle of video games as we know them, the Citizen Kane of interactive entertainment. Everything that was wrong with Breath Of The Wild, this game gets right. The musical arrangement is cartoonish, yet genius in its simplicity, and of a virtuosity to make Chopin hide in shame. The graphics feel like a Bob Ross painting brought to life, with charme and atmosphere to touch you where you have never been touched. The story in its subtlety transcends your imagination and unfolds its beautiful wings like a freshly hatched butterfly. Leave your problems at the door. And welcome. Welcome to the story of your lifetime! Expand

    Got for the memes, stayed for an endlessly enjoyable game that lasted WAY shorter than it should've.

    If you're looking for a fun game where you can be a terrible goose, look no further. Simply put, there is nothing else like Untitled GooseIf you're looking for a fun game where you can be a terrible goose, look no further. Simply put, there is nothing else like Untitled Goose Game. You may be intrigued to play it simply for laughs, but its stealth genre and tricky to-do list puzzles will also keep you entertained, at least for a few hours. Actually, just a few hours is the game's only downfall as it can be completed in about 3 hours in fact.

    However, don't let the length of the game deter you, Untitled Goose Game is worth the price of admission, particularly at its current early-bird sale price. The slick mechanics, minimalist piano—which is absolutely perfect by the way—makes it all well worth the unique experience. Hopefully there will be some fun DLC in the future to bump up the score.

Most of the puzzles are pretty meaningless and there's no real satisfaction to solving any of them - the slapstick comedy wears off quickly.

    After waddling about for 20-30 minutes in frustration, I'd look up a solution online, and often felt like the solutions were just dumb nonsense. I played through 4 of the 5 levels, hoping it would turn for the better. It didn't. I had such high hopes, but this game is just boring and a waste of time.
