Review - Untitled Goose Game
Chris Berrow and Leigh Milner review one of the strangest games of all time... Untitled Goose Game...
Chris - Untitled Goose Game was the number one seller this month on Switch. I love this. And it outsold Zelda: Link's Awakening. Rightly so because Zelda: Link's Awakening was a bit jerky as I mentioned last month.
It's basically a goose simulator. Stay with me here though because it sounds ridiculous but it's it's it's really good. You're a massively anti-social goose honking about stealing stuff.
Leigh - I mean there's there's a part where you untie someone's poor shoelaces. He's got glasses on he falls and you nick his glasses.
Chris - But it's funny though. But it's really like you know you're a brutal goose.
Leigh - Exactly right. And it's quite funny. You have some quite complicated puzzles you have to sort out. And for 18 pounds! I think that's very cheap.
Chris - The only criticism I have is that it's quite a short game. So you can complete the whole game in four hours if you're just going to bash through it... but you don't bash through.
Leigh - I disagree. It took me four hours just to get to the second level. But what I'll say is when Chris gave me this game...
Chris - You were not impressed at the idea!
Leigh - It is really really good and if you're in a long car journey or you're flying abroad to Antigua say for a wedding... It will pass the time quite well.
Chris - You get lists of stuff to do. So some of the objectives are things like steal the old man's hat and then have a picnic. So you have to like drag carrots out of his garden patch… get a tomato, picnic basket and a sandwich. But then every single character once you've completed the little level puts up a no goose sign. It could have a few more objectives but that might come in the future.
Leigh - It's out now on Steam and Nintendo's Switch, and its 18 pounds... and for more simulators download our Simulator Special episode from August. Available now on iTunes, Spotify everywhere!
