Slime Rancher Reviews
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.

Slime Rancher is a delightful, irrepressible thing with a manageable space to venture out into. A bouncy rainbow in a sludge of sprawling, mud-coloured shooters. I am so glad it exists.
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.
In a land filled with adorable slimes one green-haired girl becomes a rancher and collects their poops to make a living. Slime Rancher is one of the cutest games out there.
Slime Rancher: Plortable Edition is a perfect combination of adventure, management, and cuteness that is addicting in the way all the best management sims are, but still brings a lot of originality to the genre. It’s relaxing and a must-play on Switch for any wholesome gamers.

Slime Rancher successfully taps into the addictive nature of farming simulators, while managing to make the gameplay loop more engaging and instantly rewarding. Seasoned vets of the genre may find some aspects to be lacking, but if you've never really found the appeal in maintaining your own virtual farm – this may be the game to change your mind.
If you enjoy experimenting within your games only to watch the results of your experiments expand the game world then Slime Rancher is an ideal game for you.
The graphics are so sweet and cute, with bright and lively colors that hide a much more complicated strategy game than it seems. In addition, the manufacturer continues to release updates that make the game almost endless… but for some it might just be very repetitive.

With simple and soothing gameplay and well-planned mechanics that correlate really well, the only thing you'll lose playing Slime Rancher is a lot of time, but it's worth it to get to see cute smiley gel balls.

It’s a real pick up and put down game if you’re keen to unwind and would be great to keep the kids occupied for a few hours of fairly harmless fun
A rather fun filled with farming and exploration and very cute slimes, but there’s not much to do after you’ve seen all the zones.
I would definitely pick up Slime Rancher for a fun time. For those who want a little bit more out of their game, I would say you could try it but the controls and the lack of direct story could be infuriating to some.
Monomi Park's first and currently only game is an exploratory platformer where you're dropped on an alien planet from far away to become a farmer. Not just any farmer, though. Oh, no. You experience the farmer life collecting Dragon Quest-esque slimes of different species! Your average day consists of catching and feeding them, all the while harvesting their plorts. What is a plort you may ask? Good ole expensive slime poop. Classy way to put it, Monomi.
