"A sandbox of the simplest kind, Goat Simulator is a mental yet uproarious title whose silly antics will put a smile on the dial of even the most po-faced gamer." - Gameplanet.com
"Goat Simulator isn’t much of a game, but it’s a hell of a good time. The small but dense map is packed with tons of jokes and bugs that should be seen rather than talked about, and there’s at least a few hours’ worth of entertainment in goofing around with the jetpack alone." - IGN.com
Goat Simulator is the latest in goat simulation technology, bringing next-gen goat simulation to YOU. You no longer have to fantasize about being a goat, your dreams have finally come true! WASD to write history.
Gameplay-wise, Goat Simulator is all about causing as much destruction as you possibly can as a goat. It has been compared to an old-school skating game, except instead of being a skater, you're a goat, and instead of doing tricks, you wreck stuff. Destroy things with style, such as doing a backflip while headbutting a bucket through a window, and you'll earn even more points! Or you could just give Steam Workshop a spin and create your own goats, levels, missions, and more! When it comes to goats, not even the sky is the limit, as you can probably just bug through it and crash the game.
Disclaimer: Goat Simulator is a completely stupid game and, to be honest, you should probably spend your money on something else, such as a hula hoop, a pile of bricks, or maybe pool your money together with your friends and buy a real goat.
You can be a goat
Get points for wrecking stuff - brag to your friends that you're the alpha goat
Steam Workshop support - make your own goats, levels, missions, game modes, and more!
MILLIONS OF BUGS! We're only eliminating the crash-bugs, everything else is hilarious and we're keeping it
In-game physics that spazz out all the time
Seriously look at that goat's neck
You can be a goat

To be frank, as a game this is one of the stupidest things I've played, both in fun and serious sense. Coffee Stain Studios created just a little project at a game jam, the video got online and of course people loved it so they decided to make a "full" game of that.They even say in their website and at the disclaimer above that you should rather buy something else, and yeah, you probably should, but I don't blame CSS for making this, it obviously got a lot of attention and people are always ready for stupid.
You play as a goat and do some hilarious things. You can lick stuff which makes things like people stuck in the goats tongue. You can jump at trampolines, headbutt stuff, find some secrets like satanic powers that you get by sacrificing bunch of people, or a jetpack, ride a boat, lick a helicopter etc. If you want this then have someone to play with, alone this gets boring and fast.

To the uninitiated, this game may seem like it an over-hyped, cheap, lazy attempt at something that capitalizes on the hilarity born out of the common glitch.
If anything, this game is a commentary on the inanity of people. All manner of folk will gather to see a person control a goat through endless and torturous ridiculousness. Blow up the gas station because you can. Offer sacrifices to the demons because why not. Glitch out of the map, crash the game, and earn an achievement, because reasons. People will take whatever is thrown to them that doesn't seem right. It's a weird fascination with imperfection. Our world constantly moves towards a state of entropy, and people are obsessed with trying to control this. And yet where there is a lot of it, that is where people will strive to be.
Of course, in the end, one may find themselves turning away in favor of the more meaningful. Perhaps this game might eventually put off someone long enough for them to want to read Kant or Nietzsche. Perhaps this game sparks discourse on the human condition. Perhaps.
Perhaps all this is is a glorification of the game glitch. I'm sure the dev team saved a lot of money foregoing the debugging stage of production.
I'm surprised that there's anything at all that works.
I suppose if you want an occasional distraction from the grueling life that is yours, you can always be a goat.
Get the game and try it out for yourself.
Fun, funny, and kind of frustratingLorddyran | Sept. 16, 2014 | See all Lorddyran's reviews »
Goat Simulator is hilarious - let's just get that out of the way. In terms of emergent gameplay, it's amazing. You'll laugh, you'll "wtf", you'll find all sorts of crazy things to do.
The problem is, there isn't really a game here. I am a gamer, and I like to have story, plot, goals ... all you have here is challenges and absurdity.
In the end, I'm not its target audience. I had some fun with Goat Simulator, but only go in if you are willing to accept this as an experience rather than as a game. If you can do that, you can go in, tool around, and laugh your head off. If not, you'll laugh for a little while and then shut it down while feeling vaguely dissatisfied, like I did.
Goats! Goats! Goats!YYS1995 | Sept. 6, 2014 | See all YYS1995's reviews »
This game is hilariously funny and will surely provide much entertainment and laughter to the player. You get to do crazy things as a goat, (I somehow managed to make my goat fly high into the hair and cause a gas station to explode) . This game provides quite a fair bit of achievements to complete, some of which are really hard to attain and should provide somewhat of a challenge to those perfectionists out there.
However, this game does not have THAT much re-playability, it gets boring after a while. No matter, whenever I need a good laugh or some funny stress relievers, I'll head back to this game.
You GOATta be creative hereFourclops | Sept. 1, 2014 | See all Fourclops's reviews »
Goat Simulator is a game where you destroy things. That's it It's a really fun game, but the fun ends pretty soon unless you can be creative enough to find different ways to destroy everything around you If you have that, I'd highly recommend it. If not, it'll be fun for a while, but after getting all the secrets, it becomes boring
