Goat Simulator (Xbox One Reviewed)

Goats. The animal that gave as a horrible brand of cheese. Are cute as Kidd and then grow up to be something that eats everything in sight, kind of like a teenager.
But should they be the star of a video game? The short answer is a triumphant yes.
Goat simulator is a game almost like no other. The only object is to destroy objects, cars and buoldings or to kick an unsuspecting passerby over a cliff and watch them thrash about in an inch of water.
Physics are a thing of rhe past being able to defy them in mid air being able to do front and back flips. Ragdoll in front of cars for a higher score.
The higher the combo of skills you use the better the score. As basic as it is, the game is actually incredibly fun, even if it is only for a couple of hours at a time.
Theres a lot of hidden areas to visit, including a zero gravity testing facility, a rooftop rave and a skatepark. Most of these areas unlock a new version for the Goat to help you out. Different skins for him as you go around the world destroying theme parks, markets and anything you clap your eyes on.
Graphics aren't too great. But you really won't care once you get in to the swing of blowing up cars with just your face. Faces of people do look like something straight out of an early WWE title back in the days of PS2. Then there is the sound which can also be abit off sometimes. The music is dreadfully repetitive and sometimes the screams of people you boot off the top of a hotel roof pierce your ear drums as if Jason Vorhees was your physician.
Goat simulator is fun, senseless and satisfying.
Being a Goat is great, so much so, I know want one for Christmas.

Goat Simulator Scores: 8/10
Gameplay: 7/10
Grpahics: 5/10
Soundtrack: 5/10
