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 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.

Slime Rancher is an special life simulation - survival game with lovely art style, beautiful music and various types of slimes. but beside this good aspects, the game has issues like shallow gameplay elements that make you feel like gameplay has no purpose sometimes. with all of these good and negative aspects, In the end, i must say that Slime Rancher is a beautiful game that can entertain you and make you some fun hours in "Far Far Range" planet.
