Goat Simulator
Download on the AppStore
3 out of 5

PROS

  • Some genuine laugh out load moments
  • The sandbox mania is initially very entertaining

CONS

  • Riddled with bugs and glitches
  • Joke can get old pretty quickly

VERDICT

Broken and shonky though it is, you'll probably get just enough enjoyment from Goat Simulator's bonkers sandbox playground to justify the price tag.

Goat Simulator is a difficult game to review.

On the one hand, it's a transparently broken game riddled with bugs, glitches, frame-rate issues, and optimisation problems.

On the other hands, however, the whole game is a very conscious joke - one designed to poke fun at the subjective dullness of games like Truck Simulator and Train Simulator. As a result, it can be argued that the game is deliberately broken, and therefore cite its technical weaknessess as part of the joke.

Harry Slater of Pocket Gamer weighed the pros and cons of this satirical venture in his review. Check out the video above to see what he thought.
