Critic Reviews for Slime Rancher

A slight and repetitive but cute farming game, Slime Rancher doesn't quite reach the heights of its sub-genre.

Optimizing your ranch and collecting new slimes is engaging, and the steady stream of valuable upgrades ensures you always have a goal to reach for

Slime Rancher is an utter, charming delight to play.

Slime Rancher is its own enemy: everything good it offers has a counterpart of equal magnitude. However, at the end, the experience is enjoyable and, despites its notorious flaws, turns out to be a pretty fun mix of FPS, adventure and farming simulator.

A charming world that's worth getting lost in, Slime Rancher places you in a brightly coloured sandbox and gives you the freedom to make your own way. There are many plates to spin and no real motivation to progress beyond your own curiosity, but this is a journey well worth exploring.

Slime Rancher: Plortable Edition is a title that doesn't do the game justice. This isn't a stripped-back Nokia N-Gage version of a grand game, this is the real deal, and it's blinkin' marvellous. Farming Slimes, exploring the world, getting frustrated at the price of Crystal Plorts never going up, it's a dense and wondrous experience. Having to travel so much on foot stops it from achieving extreme greatness, but it's not enough to stop us giving this a hearty recommendation.

Slime Rancher is an enjoyable foray into virtual ranching, yet fails to provide enough meaningful depth beyond its adorable visual identity.

There is an obvious passion, a lack of nonsense, and an awareness that a game should be one thing at its core: Fun. These traits have resulted in not only the perfect game for a small group of people, but a truly lovely game that many will play and enjoy.
