Graveyard Keeper is a cemetery management simulation game and naturally, this is enough for it to stand out on its own. Adding to that a very interesting visual environment and a complex gameplay and a segment of the market will find reasons to be happy about. Those who are not fans of management simulations, as well as those looking for simpler experiences, won't appreciate it in the same way, as Graveyard Keeper can get too cumbersome, long and repetitive and could improve some aspects about its controls.

The overall quality of Graveyard Keeper is satisfactory. Of the 50 hours of gameplay, 40 were really cool; all this morbid fun was really interesting, even if the game could use some polish and a better balance.

Graveyard Keeper's limitations and shortcomings come real close to outweighing the fun that can be had from playing a new game. When I got the game and read the premise, it sounded quirky and fun. As I played, it seemed more awkward and vexing.
A nice relaxed, and horribly inaccurate, management sim. Live your dream of becoming the owner of your very own graveyard! Really fun and addictive game. I was blown away by the sheer amount of stuff to do. As someone who doesn't typically enjoy this genre, this game managed to keep me addicted well into the night. If you enjoy talking donkeys and morally questionable decisions, this is the game for you.
Graveyard Keeper is a management sim like Stardew Valley with a graveyard theme. The gameplay mechanics are vast and well-built but there are flaws and sophisticated systems that can make the game extremely boring for the first hours of play. However, If you bare the first hours of game, then it will become fun and you can enjoy it. The game has very good story potential but unfortunately it doesn’t use this potential and story is forgotten after the first hour. At all, If you like Stardrew Valley, you’ll probably enjoy Graveyard Keeper but my suggestion is waiting for about two months for balancing updates and then consider buying this game.

Unusual graveyard with so many possibilities, but so complicated system and boring gameplay... Monotonous too soon.

A solid and fun little farming type sim, but one that has a few issues. Although it's a bit rough around the edges, it's still worth a look.
As long as you can stomach the slow opening stretch and that the game doesn't quite live up to its title, you'll enjoy this gruesome spin on the farming genre.
It's systems are robust and plentiful, but frankly many are downright confusing. The developers decided to do the player no favors, leaving much of the complexities a mystery without searching online. That is enough to scare some away, but if it isn't a dealbreaker, there's more than enough here to keep you busy for hours on end.
Some gamers may appreciate Graveyard Keeper's grindfest of a campaign but those who are looking for something more immediately gratifying will likely become frustrated beyond repair with its convoluted systems and tedious tasks.
