    It’s not an easy game, per se, but then it never claimed to be. Once you get your head around the time and patience aspect, SnowRunner is going to engross you. It won’t win any Game of the Year awards for being niche, but then neither does Train Simulator. If you can convince some friends to join you, then even better. But even as a solo experience, there’s some absolute joy to be had when you get stuck into it.

    SnowRunner sets the bar for other similar simulators. It’s much better than its predecessors, there are hundreds of hours of content, the game looks great and it boasts the most satisfying vehicle physics of all time.

    Simultaneously a big leap over the MudRunner titles and a compelling effort in its own right, SnowRunner's improved focus on the hard fought conflict between man, machine and nature results in a highly rewarding and satisfying driving simulator that is quite unlike anything else.

    SnowRunner has its issues, but its unique brand of truck simulation and off-road adventuring is enough to keep you entertained for hours on end.

    SnowRunner improves upon its predecessor in every way. The game offers beautiful maps filled to the brim with content, as well as deep, engaging gameplay that will keep you playing for a long time to come. The multiplayer options form the cherry on top of this already delicious cake.

    An earnest, unapologetically tricky, and time-consuming trucking experience, SnowRunner’s peculiar brand of off-road ordeals is oddly addictive, deep, and rewarding when played in the right spirit. It’s not often we see an authentic, slow-paced delivery sim that doesn’t baffle you with nonsense or try to upsell you a $2,000 jacket, but SnowRunner’s no slouch.

    SnowRunner’s glacial pace won’t appeal to everyone, but this unique haulage simulation manages to transform everyday terrain into an enemy you need to tame. This is a game that’s less about the destination and all about the journey you take; in that sense it’s unmatched, and wildly rewarding in a way that few other open worlders are.

Enigmatic, relaxing and yet very complex, Snowrunner is a perfect example of a great sequel. Exceeding in every aspect, Snowrunner is not a tech demo anymore (like Mudrunner was), it's a full experience. A few bugs here and there, but they will be ironed out with the great post-launch support. Season Pass is a must buy, great value for it's money. Expand

Wish I had the time to play it as much as I'd like to. There's just something about trucks traversing in mud/snow that's just so fascinating. It's almost therapeutic. This game captures all the physics so well and is a blast to play. I've put in about 350 hours and still not completed the base maps. I quickly grab every DLC Focus/Saber puts out. Hope I can play it all some day. Expand

    what a lovely landscape and so many different undergrounds to drive on even snow!
    really like the look, it runs smoothly, pretty high
    what a lovely landscape and so many different undergrounds to drive on even snow!
    really like the look, it runs smoothly, pretty high fidelity game.

    but what makes it really unplayable is the REALLY bad way config of your steering works. You launch the game, everything is fine, next time you launch it, your sound doesnt work and your steering does not work either. total crap. drives me crazy!

    Rubbish!!! 50+ hours playing this game when all of a sudden trucks are going missing, cargo is getting duplicated to the point where itRubbish!!! 50+ hours playing this game when all of a sudden trucks are going missing, cargo is getting duplicated to the point where it crashes my game, camera jumps around, trucks are getting damaged even when they're at a halt and trucks are sent flying when i hit something. Today they updated it and it got even worse!!! Over 40 eu down the drain cause the game ain't even playable no more. It felt like no one even tried testing it before it was released. Expand
