In short, if you enjoyed the original and want to take that to larger proportions, it's obvious that you're going to like it for how simple its humor is and also for its graphical performance. It is totally a satire made into a video game, and if we are honest, it fulfills its function of entertaining. Of course It's not a GOTY, but I don't think it wants to be.

These days, though, these kinds of experiences are undoubtedly a tougher sell, but it’s hard to be too down when you’re sporting tacos as shoes, head-butting ballerinas to produce humungous tornadoes, while the locals shoot laser beams from out their eyes for eating a cupcake. Yes, there may be some life in the ol’ goat yet, but it’s probably fair to say that the joke is beginning to wear a little thin… well, a tiny bit, anyway.

Goat Simulator 3 is dumb, dotty, and through some fluke of gaming-related evolution, incredibly enjoyable.

All in all, Goat Simulator 3 is a wonderfully wacky experience that is sure to delight, whether you're playing on your own or with friends. Its gameplay mechanics may get a bit old if you're playing solo or looking for a layered gameplay story, but if you're keen for a ridiculous and hilarious casual game to dip in and out of occasionally, Goat Simulator 3 will be an excellent fit for your library.

Goat Simulator 3 is a remarkable improvement on the original in practically every way, with a great variety of gear to wreak havoc with. While the attempt to introduce a story mode is satisfactory at best, the dedication to offering fun and robust multiplayer modes easily elevates Goat Simulator 3 to be greater than the sum of its parts.

When all is said and done, Goat Simulator 3 is a solid playground to have fun in and just be the worst goat possible.

Goat Simulator 3 not only recaptures the crazy fun of the original, but it expands and improves on everything that came before, resulting in a big, stupid sandbox experience that made me smile from start to finish.

It's bigger, bolder and Goat Simulator is truly weird @#$… but it's probably the most original game of the year and really fun to play!

Goat Simulator 3 makes no prisoners and comes out as a fun and non-stop parody of modern open world games. Some of its ideas are way better than others and it lacks that sense of surprise that we got with the first game, but it delivers on its mission to make you laugh again and again.

Goat Simulator 3 is full of unfunny jokes, several once-funny exaggerations, and pretty obvious references. Underneath all this mess, we have an interesting gameplay. But still, Goat Simulator 3 is basically an open world game made entirely of bad sidequests.

The crazy goat simulation, which was more of an April Fool's joke, caught on very well and the second part, or the third, is already here. It offers unfettered fun, but also bugs.

Silly in a good way, Goat Simulator 3 is an excellent no-frills game for pleasant escapism.

Overall, Goat Simulator 3 is a game aimed at chaos and fun, while not perfect, it hits those beats often. Much like its predecessor, there is a lot to discover that needs to be added to the mini-map, while the missions are fun, and there is always more to do.

Despite its flaws, Goat Simulator 3 is an expert in offering pure and unprejudiced fun thanks to its absolute commitment to absurdity and madness. One of the freshest and funniest experiences of the year.

Goat Simulator 3 does exactly what its predecessor did so well. This time only on a larger and higher quality scale. With the co-op function and new additions, fun and a lot of laughter is guaranteed. You can play the goat again.

At any rate, the game is an ironic, satiric, comical masterpiece, and it’s apparent that the developers have invested a lot of time and resources into this project to have it function seriously from a technical standpoint.

Goat Simulator 3 fits perfectly into an era of great seriousness and the use of teasing as a sign of humor, it just doesn't have that feeling of the first great "goat romance".

Goat Simulator 3 doesn’t take itself seriously, and that’s a good thing. While it’s definitely a blast, it’s hard to recommend this because your enjoyment of it depends on your tolerance for the concept. For me, it ended after a few hours before I got bored, but the fun can definitely last if you’re taking advantage of the online multiplayer feature. That being said, while there are a lot of activities and jokes to be had, if you’re the type of player that enjoys having a defined path to follow, Goat Simulator 3 is probably the furthest from it. It would be advisable to check out some videos about the game first before diving in.

Goat Simulator 3 nails the ridiculousness in a bigger, more intuitive way. The humour hits in every corner of the huge open world you’ll be exploring, culminating in hours of fun. The controls not feeling as modern as its peers, alongside small performance issues dampen the overall package, but if you’re looking for something truly off the wall and friendly for all ages, this game is one to check out.
