    Snowrunner is what happens when an immovable object meets an irresistible force. As long as the irresistible force has a winch, the immovable object will lose.

    A beautiful-looking simulation with very specific appeal that will likely turn off as many people as it interests. If you’re in the latter group, however, this is an indispensable physics toybox.

    While playing, I am reminded of the feelings I got from Minecraft, Euro Truck Simulator, Portal, and SimCity 2000. Simultaneously relaxing, infuriating, perplexing, and rewarding, SnowRunner is on my shortlist for game of the year. If I could show this to my six-year-old self, he would give birth to a litter of puppies on the spot due to sheer excitement. If you need a path cleared, a load hauled, or a vehicle rescued, I am the man you call. 9/10 38-inch Super Swamper TSLs

    The start of Snowrunner is demanding, and can put off the mere curious. However, for the more adventurous and regulars, this new installment of the Spintires series is a success.

    Snowrunner is really one of the most suprising games I’ve played in a long time. It offers a unique atmosphere, a great world to explore and a very satisfying gameplay loop. What you need to be able to enjoy it is patience, though, for it is a slow endeavour and sometimes tough as nails.

    SnowRunner is the stay-inside game we need right now. Slow, rewarding, and providing just enough resistance to keep the player sharp, it's a singularly zen experience that's made for a particular kind of person -- even those who avoid more genre-standard titles.

    This very unique Offroad-Simulation draws its fascination from the beautifully designed, but lifeless world and its outstanding physics simulation. Patience is a must-have, though.

Graphics are way better than I expected on PC. It really looks like a AAA game, no over-exaggeration in here. The physics are some of the best I saw in a game, probably the best for a racing game on the market right now. It's so fun to drive in such harsh conditions, in mud and snow, it's pretty challenging even without a hard mode that some people requested. There is a lot of content, you will have many many tens of hours to spend in this game. Interiors are looking nice, very good and detailed design. There are multiple upgrades that you can put on your truck, upgrades that affect a lot the gameplay and the way your truck acts in the wild. I would recommend this to everyone who like games like Euro Truck Simulator, but offroad. The map is very big and there will still be some new maps coming in the next months. I'm playing with a gamepad, the controls are not hard to get used to and are pretty well done.

    For the guy that gave a 0 because of wheels support: they said they delayed testing of wheels because of COVID-19 and work for home so that's why it does not fully support wheels (some are working) and doesn't have force feedback on them at the moment. They said they will update/fix this as soon as possible.

    For the guy with Epic Games: no comment. This has nothing to do with the game, just grow up and accept that there can be multiple launchers on the market. The launcher doesn't affect in any way your experience with the game.

    A small stepup from spintires. Gameplay gets stale pretty quick because you basically transport cargo through mud all the time.

The ones that bother me the most are 1. the broken trailers (if you load cargo into a trailer with a crane and switch so another truck like if it gets stuck, the cargo FALLS INTO THE TRAILER, losing collusion and making the whole trip useless.) and 2. I can't finish a mission if the required resource has been manually loaded into the truck. other issues include general clipping of objects, things shifting... wrong or enabling features that are not possible. would be a 9 if these issues were fixed.

    UPDATE: after the update in the game, I had to reinstall mods and none of the bugs that I have seen have been fixed I FOUND MORE in the recent version. I dragged out the cat on the 2nd Alaska map to the sawmill (like instructed) and FOR **** SAKE!!! IT DID NOT DRIVE AT ALL even though it is not broken NOR OUT OF GAS when I got to the sawmill NOTHING! same with a trailer on the 1st map. 4/10, my review will continue to drop as I find more game-breaking bugs

    Absolutely broken upon release, you may be able to make some progress in single player, but if you look at the bug reports in their discord,Absolutely broken upon release, you may be able to make some progress in single player, but if you look at the bug reports in their discord, it is horrendous - especially on console. Please don't give them any more money. Releasing a game in this state is a cash grab and cannot be incentivized.

    Thanks for listening.
