Goat Simulator - Review (PC)| CriticalIndieGamer

(CriticalIndieGamer)Carried on a wave of clever marketing and enough Youtube Yokels screaming “Game of the Year” and “10 out of 10” to fill a petting zoo, Coffee Stain has somehow managed to convince gamers that its “it’s SO bad, it’s GOOD” title is not only worthy of paying attention to but $10 to boot! Goat Simulator is admittedly a joke but at that price, the joke is on you. (Goat Simulator, PC) 1/10

Here's my opinion on this game

Great fun, in short bursts. Can be completed in a few hours, but still worth the money. The controls are wonky, but just pretend the goat is a small four-wheel drive vehicle. I loved the music, I thought the wacky animations and graphics suited the game perfectly, and I hold farm-yard animal sims in high regards. Roll on Cow Simulator.

Buy it. I have been having great fun with it. Reviews are always from a critical standpoint. The bugs are hilarious and that is the point.. Who is criticalindiegamer.com? lol

Just a guy with an opinion.

Exactly, the game is tons of fun but you really can't take it seriously. If you love free roaming in games like saints row or gta this is your cup of tea.

I completely agree! I preordered it so I got early access and me and my sister had a blast with it. Plus it's got workshop capability, so modders can go crazy with it. People need to keep in mind that this was just a tech demo/fun demonstration Coffee Stain Studios did, it wasn't meant to be a full game for the public. The public REQUESTED it!

Awful write-up.
TGR  +   561d ago
For an awful "game" :)

It's actually a lot of fun. How many games can you sprint across the street with a basket ball in your mouth flailing around bouncing off trucks then do a front flip off a trampoline and throw the ball at dancing dbags. As a goat? None other than goat simulator. The games a joke. Take it as one.

So you can criticize something and call it awful, but the minute someone criticizes your ability to write a review you have to reply?
Geekman  +   561d ago
It's MEANT to be stupid. *Facepalm.* I've had alot of fun with this game. A game deserves a 1/10 when it's actually boring, and this game is far from boring. How dare they give it a lower score than Superman 64.

But it's not that big a deal.
Pintheshadows  +   561d ago
Hahaha. I actually think it is a brilliant novelty game. And the devs clearly know it. The description on Steam is wonderful.

You can't possibly play this game and give it a 1/10.
Flatbattery  +   561d ago
Another reviewer that doesn't get it.
TGR  +   561d ago
Oh, we "get" it. "It" just isn't funny.
Flatbattery  +   561d ago
Obviously that is personal opinion, but it does appear to be the polar opposite of your audience.
Nate-Dog  +   560d ago
While I never normally care about people's particular scores in reviews (or reviews at all really), giving it a 1 out of 10 is the lowest score you can give a game, unless you operate with 0/10, but regardless of the latter point, 1/10 signifies that pretty much every aspect and feature of the game does not work and is absolutely horrible and so abysmal that it cannot be endured whatsoever.

I won't even bother giving this site a click. The game is terrible, but it's weirdly fun. It's completely worth $10 just to laugh at the ridiculousness of it all. Someone took themselves a little too seriously when they started typing...
cell989  +   561d ago
yeah $10 is not worth it, youre comparing this game to Minecraft by price alone, not even on the same level
SpiralTear  +   561d ago
I don't think this review knows what a 1/10 means. That means borderline non-functioning.
TGR  +   561d ago
Oh, so you know the scale we use when reviewing games? Okay then :)

I do, actually. You're entitled to your opinion, just as I'm entitled to my opinion to disagree with your opinion.
Coach_McGuirk  +   561d ago
it's like a joke. and everyone but the author gets it.
TGR  +   561d ago
We "get" it. "It" just isn't funny. Especially not with the extortionate price-tag. An awful game in every regard in our opinion.

I hope no one is clicking on your "review." I can only assume that you are just trying to get clicks for your crappy website.

Obviously your opinion and your review is definitely not the majority.

I am having a ton of fun with the game and it is only going to get more awesome with Steam Workshop.

I got a new name for your website. Cynical Indie Gamer. The whole point of indie games to me is to push in areas where triple AAA developers couldn't possibly afford to.

Someone took the game too seriously.

I saw this review Coming from a Mile away...this game borders between incredibly stupid and extremely hilarious
gamecherry  +   561d ago
I am the writer of the review & stand by my 1/10 score. Goat Simulator is a borderline non-functioning "game." It's broken in every facet and function. While some gamers may revel in such dysfunction and enjoy the "cleverness" of releasing such a travesty, a good game it does not make. I would say that any unfinished and buggy game would offer just as many high points (or low points depending on your perception) and "Youtube moments" as Goat Sim could.

As far as "not getting it" - Let's not confuse Coffee Stain studios with the second coming of Monty Python. They saw an interest in their badly coded Jam game and decided to release it as a lark. While some folks may find it humorous to pay $10 for an unfinished glitchy piece of trash (regardless if it's featuring a goat, chicken, or blue hedgehog), I do not.

I have no idea if Goat Simulator is good. I have no idea if the review or the site is good cos I never heard of it, (although thats changed now hasnt it.)

But dont submit a review to N4G and then show up in the comments disagreeing with each individual comment that doesnt agree with it. Its such a turnoff.

If you believe it the product, put it out there and let it stand on its own two feet to be judged by all that see it and can be bothered to read it. Much like game makers have to. Or in this case, four feet.

I suspect the people giving games like this 1/10 are people who think all games are comparitive to art. It's a joke, the whole reason it exists is just for some fun and for people to laugh at. A notion obviously a lot of people don't get.

The game was released on April Fool's day, that should tell you something about whether or not you should take it seriously.
Diamondblood  +   560d ago

CIG isn't the only site to call Goat Simulator out for what it is. You can claim that we don't get it but the sad truth is we do and we don't think its a joke worth $10.

They could have sold it for $2 and they had even said they would release it for a free at one point. The pricetag ruins the experience and this sort of attitude shouldn't be encouraged.
