A sandbox of the simplest kind, Goat Simulator is a mental yet uproarious title whose silly antics will put a smile on the dial of even the most po-faced gamer.

Goat Simulator is stupid, ridiculous, and incredibly fun. Everything from the hidden areas to the different goats make this game hilarious, and well worth the price.

Goat Simulator is not a real simulator but it is a real laugh.

No, Goat Simulator won't be game of the year by any stretch of imagination. However, those who want a stupid little game that rewards you for destroying things but won't kill you, even if you head-butt a tanker truck, leap out a fourth-story window, or let a treadmill backspin you out into traffic, will not be let down by the simplicity the game has to offer. Just be prepared for buggy controls, a twitchy camera, and plenty of physics that don't make sense (but you won't care because it's a friggin' goat).

If you are looking for a game to just pop in and screw around on for a few minutes in between important things or whatever, this game is a great time filler.

Goat Simulator is a clever piece of interactive satire powered by hilarious ragdoll physics and its embracing of bugs.

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.

Thanks to Coffee Stain Studios' Goat Simulator, now you, too can goat, and you can goat with gusto.

It's broken, but it's not a mess for being a title that spits on the face of physics. It's small, but there's a lot to try to do and the Workshop feature will be sure to bring more content by the truckloads. It's stupid, but it's brilli– no, it really is stupid as hell. Still, you can tell a lot of love went into this project. Plus, you can be a goat.

Goat Simulator is a fun game to pick up and play with plenty of laughs to be had alone or with friends but doesn't take too long to complete or have much replay value.

There's not much of an actual game in here to tell you the truth, but for $10 and a few hours of your time I don't really think you can go far wrong in checking out. Goat Simulator's a breath of fresh air in the sea of pitchfork-waving tripe that gaming can easily become. It's small, dense, and pretty poorly made, but the interactivity and sheer ability to goof around make it worth your time - If in doubt though, wait until the inevitable sales and give it a spin.

Goat Simulator is a great time for the first few hours when you're seeing everything for the first time, but once you've seen everything, there's no reason to keep playing.

Providing that you are in on the joke, you are almost guaranteed to have a good time – albeit only for a few hours a best. Running around as a goat is something I never imagined I wanted to do, but it turns out it's incredibly fun. The bugs and general lack of polish do have a negative effect on the game and the short playtime will have some questioning whether it's worth the asking price. But if you are looking for a couple of hours of fun with a lot of laughs, you cant go wrong with Goat Simulator.

Goat Simulator is the definition of dumb fun. It serves no purpose other than to entertain. I have derived far too many hours of enjoyment out of a game with little purpose.

Exploring the world and causing trouble was really satisfying, but the appeal disappears as soon as you realise there is only one map. Hopefully Steam Workshop expands on the ideas here, otherwise it may not have much lasting appeal. A multiplayer mod is a must for the future of Goat Simulator!

Goat Simulator is rough around the edges and doesn't offer a lot of content, but if you're into destruction, humor, and the sheer ridiculousness of it, it's not a baaaaad deal at all. If you're only going to buy one goat simulator this year, make it this one.

Goat Simulator serves up a tiny, but pretty dense, sandbox stuffed with slapstick goofs and anarchic, broken comedy. It isn't much of a game, particularly for £6-8, but it's one hell of a joke.

Goat Simulator has no true point, except to amuse you. It’s a relatively small game with bugs and simple designs. It’s got a crap ton of physics that are absolutely buggy, and well it’s a really good thing. It’s seriously just about running around two peaceful areas as a goat and causing mischief. Oh, and wait you can become the Goat Queen, all hail!

A gloriously unhinged and unashamedly stupid game, Goat Simulator is still one of the most enjoyable things I've played in some time. It's a horribly glitchy mess, but it's also somewhat majestic in its commitment to providing surreal lunacy that will have you in fits of laughter. If this is what it's like to be a goat, I don't want to be human anymore.

To hand this enterprise an actual numerical valuation is possibly as arbitrary as the point-scoring within Goat Simulator itself. Is it a 10 for concept alone? Is it a zero because as a playable media it is an utter shambles with a broken physics engine? It seems to not even matter. It takes very special situational engineering to be able to create a product that is awful, sell it for real cash-money and then simply exclaim to the haters: "we told you so." But that is what Coffee Stain have succeeded in doing. Kudos to those guys, who are having their cake and eating it. An almost perfect paradox.
