honestly hadn't had so much fun playing a portable game in a long time. I was really surprised that the game runs so smooth on the Switch, I can't comment on the PC version since I don't actually own it. Normally with some games on the Switch you do notice some performance issues but with this game there were none. Of course, its not the game with the most advanced graphics in the world but that doesn't mean they can't be beautiful and beautiful they are.

It’s easy to see why this game has garnered the fandom that it has. From memes to coffee shops all over the place putting up “No Geese” signs (mimicking an act done in the game), this game is beyond popular. This game has even gone as far as to beat the new Link’s Awakening off the top spot of the digital charts in the USA! It’s a true underdog story, and all the success is truly deserved. Pick this game up, and you will not regret it, and remember, press Y to honk!

Untitled Goose Game is a stealth game lovers dream disguised as a charming adventure game. Designed to be pesky in every possible way the mechanics are simple enough for all ages yet the objectives keep even the most thrill-seeking seasoned gamers intrigued. The only gripe I have is the in-game camera does not pan or zoom in enough. Whether you are looking for another adventure or are curious like I was why this game is so popular Untitled Goose Game  brings out the mischievous side in all of us encouraging the most honking good times!

Untitled Goose Game is a gem that hits all the right marks. There's some real appeal in using an otherwise innocuous animal sowing chaos in a sleepy village, and it helps that the results aren't violent at all. The game's short length keeps the experience from wearing thin, but there's enough here to keep you busy. With a pleasant presentation, Untitled Goose Game is a title where you'll both cherish the initial experience and enjoy showing it off to friends to see their reactions.

Untitled Goose Game boasts more inventiveness, creativity and charm than the vast majority of titles on the Switch eShop, and offers a believable game world that's a real pleasure to explore, investigate and – of course – cause merry havoc in. Superb physics, excellent controls, surprisingly robust AI and unique presentation all combine to make this a real highlight in the Switch's library – it's only the brevity of the experience that lets it down, but this really is a case of quality over quantity.

Untitled Goose Game has a very simple premise, but the execution of that idea is excellent. Being a goose is more fun than it should be, and I had a smile on my face throughout the entirety of the game's relatively brief two-hour runtime. The fetch quests can get a bit repetitive and the camera doesn't cooperate on occasion, but these are small blemishes on an otherwise brilliant game. Incredibly charming and funny, this is an indie game you shouldn't skip out on.

Untitled Goose Game is a body-swapping fantasy that transforms any would-be suburban miscreant into a waddling force of mischief and destruction. Instead of putting your finger in everyone's freshly baked pie, you menace around town and devastate an ordinary Saturday afternoon. Untitled Goose Game is philosophical exercise to determine if the conniving will of a large annoying bird is either innate programming from a bored deity or a product of our broken society.

It is a short and sweet romp through what might as well be Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, with the fun flair of causing chaos wherever you go. I appreciate that there are bonus tasks to accomplish, and replaying is encouraged due to some bonus tasks being time sensitive, meaning not everything may be completed on an initial run. All in all, Untitled Goose Game is a cute, short experience that is hurdled with some camera issues, but makes up for in it's charm.

Almost everything that's wrong with Untitled Goose Game – and to be fair, there isn't that much – is inherently wrong with the stealth genre in general, and a silly game about a goose wrecking someone's flower beds was never likely to change that. But what it does do, over and above other stealth games, is combine charming visuals and glorious audio with such a ridiculous and unique premise, it's impossible not to honk through this one with a massive smile on your face.

Untitled Goose Game lives up to the charm and entertainment value that many were expecting from it. The sandbox style gameplay is a joy to play around with and the inclusion of stealth along with the well-crafted physics work only to further benefit the game. The To-do list task are all equally hilarious because they feel authentic and are genuinely satisfying to complete (the feeling of crossing items off a list never gets old). Some may find the game to be a bit short on content and if you’re not a fan of game’s that center around “goofing off” then Untitled Goose Game may not be for you. I recommend checking the game out for anyone that’s on the fence because you may be missing out on one of the most unique experiences of 2019.

Not just because it's a game that puts the player in control of a detestable goose but because it's fun and diabolically marvelous to commit some of the most morally reprehensible acts of bullying. Inevitably, it can end up feeling repetitive but the game's sense of humour, soundtrack and satisfaction that it gives to the player for playing despicable little pranks make this game a shameless delight.
