"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.

This game is so much fun in short bursts. If you've ever thought, "I really wish I could be a goat and headbutt a gas pump until everything blows up," what the heck is wrong with you? Also, you should buy this game.
There are lots of fun little secrets in Goat Simulator. I enjoyed being abducted by aliens and becoming the dark lord raining goat minions upon fearful humans. I also liked launching my goat into space, only to realize by doing so I had just broken the game and would have to restart. Patches have introduced fun "riding" dynamics among other things that matter less to someone like me, who just wants to haul a person around the amusement park and leap to our surprisingly not deaths in the river.
All that said, the game isn't that kind of thing you play constantly. It's fun to revisit, especially with friends in the room who have yet to see how exciting it is to get your goat's head stuck in a chain link fence while trying to ram some dude with a funny name. However, it will feel repetitive and frustrating after playing for a bit; I got a little tired of trying to accomplish X or Y and ending up in space instead. So you will exit the game and revisit some other, shinier thing... until the urge to be a goat overcomes you once more.

I got a hold of this game during a rough time in my life and the pure zaniness and insanity lifted my spirits. This game was meant as a small contest entry, then people wanted MORE, so here it is... Goat Simulator.
I've logged about ten hours into Goat Simulator over about half a year. At first the glitchy gameplay and weird music had me in stitches. Anything goes in this game, any non-game breaking glitch stays. My head could fly across the stage still attached to my neck and that's ok with the devs.
After a few hours, it loses its charm and is back to just a joke game, but with Steam workshop added in, I occasionally boot it up once in a while to cause more havoc. Definitely a stress reliever, but not a game more most.

I did buy this upon release, yes I did. Why? Cause something this crazy was worth a try, instead of the constant bland shooters coming out by the truckload. You are a goat in a small town, well 2 small towns now. And have plenty of things to interact with to make the game glitch out and cause very strange happenings. Like your neck stretching like a certain T-1000 in a movie, everyone has seen by now.
There is no story at all. Just a bug filled game and crazy physics.

One day I thought, hey, I wanna play as a goat, so I bought this game. Instantly I found myself in the mind of a goat. I needed desperately to headbutt everything. Also lick things, though my tongue would then get stuck. And then the game would break, and everything would go weird, and eventually it'd give up and respawn me. And it is a whole bunch of fun.
But, unfortunately, this game is really nothing more than a novelty. It's fun and dumb and goofy, but once the novelty wears off, it's just a broken game. Playing local co-op helps, but only for so long.

At first glance this game might seem like any ordinary simulator but it just isnt.You get to play as a FREAKING GOAT.Jokes aside,althoug this game is highly entertaining as a filler for downloads,it just doesnt supply enough content in the long run to make it worths its price.
Long story short,if you're looking for a game with an epic story, you've come to the wrong place.For the price, you would be better off getting another game with much more content and replayability value.
In conclusion, unless this game gets extra content or perhaps multiplayer (who doesnt wanna team up with their goat friends and lay waste to the town?) this game will never be that relevant.Honestly, the modability of the game is probability gonna keep a player for another hour at max.
