The simulator gag has gotten stale, but Job Simulator brings enough laughs to the novelty genre to land a new punchline. This bonkers work-'em-up is set in the future, where robots simulate the menial tasks of today with a disregard for details. This means that, while you'll be carrying out tedious tasks such as making soup and fixing cars, the game doesn't really give a hoot how you reach your destination.

What you have, then, is a rare title that's legitimately laugh out loud funny. The scenarios that you have to contend with across the title's four careers – office worker, gourmet chef, convenience store clerk, and grease monkey – employ dry humour and biting wit to comment on the real-world, but it's never so heavy-handed that it breaks the joy of the goofy, cartoon-like gameplay. We'll have a full review soon, but do check out the footage embedded above.
