May 4, 2020It’s a hugely immersive game that ticks a whole ton of boxes for those looking to gain new off-roading kicks, and the sheer amount of variety in terms of the vehicles, the trailers and the customisation and amendments that can be made to these is nothing short of stunning. Throw in a whole ton of content in the form of main missions, tasks and challenges, and if you’re up for getting down and dirty, then there is possibly no better place to get started than with SnowRunner.
May 7, 2020SnowRunner is a huge improvement over the game that preceded it. It is also a title that can be challenging but yet rewarding. The visuals are top notch, the audio brings the in-game world to life and the control and game camera are much more fine-tuned. Yes, there are a few hiccups now and then, but the positives far outweigh the negatives. If you are looking for an off-road simulation game that is not only different from the rest out there, but one that will give you a challenge and a lot of gameplay, then you can’t go wrong with SnowRunner, as there is no better game in the genre.
May 1, 2020SnowRunner surprised us with a very satisfying off-road simulation thanks to great gameplay, physics simulation an huge and highly varied sceneries. It's got some rough edges, but if the devs will keep investing in it, this could become one of the most loved franchises around in the future.
Apr 27, 2020Basically, if Forza Horizon 4 and American Truck Simulator got drunk and hooked up one night then SnowRunner is what I imagine the result would be. A slower paced game that challenges throughout and stays fresh with a good range of vehicles, upgrades and locations to explore and a great deal of customization.
Apr 29, 2020SnowRunner’s peculiar brand of off-road ordeals is addictive, deep, and rewarding when played in the right spirit.
May 4, 2020This game has been very successful in bringing this job into the interactive scene.
Apr 28, 2020SnowRunner is a slow game, requiring a lot of patience to get through. If you're willing to give it the time investment it asks, then you will find a satisfying experience here, with each contract you take, and each road you traverse, unfolding into one big puzzle to tackle. A hoard of customisation options also allows you to tinker with your trucks to your heart's content. If that sounds up your street, then SnowRunner might be for you, but don't expect to get anything done fast.

Feb 5, 2022I liked Mudrunner enough to buy this game on release. But I never expected this to be such a massive improvement in every possible way. OpenI liked Mudrunner enough to buy this game on release. But I never expected this to be such a massive improvement in every possible way. Open world design suites this game so well!
It is also the most addictive game I ever played. It’s immersive, meditative, but also intense and challenging.
The best moments are when you screw up and then have to improvise and recover the situation, like when you send an expedition to save the stuck truck with the cargo.
Overall it was my GOTY of 2020, I played over a hundred hours and 100% the base game, then 100% first couple of DLC maps. Just for the reference - I have never spent so much time in one game in my 20+ years of gaming, nor have I ever had a desire to 100% a game, not even BOTW.
Sure there are bugs, and at first there was a lot of them, but for me even this fact it doesn’t detract from the experience enough to lower the score from 10.
It’s won’t appeal to everyone, but if it clicks with you - it’s fantastic.… Expand

May 4, 2020SnowRunner is an All-Terrain Truck Driving Delivery Simulator. The newest addition to the series including MudRunner and Spintires, SnowRunnerSnowRunner is an All-Terrain Truck Driving Delivery Simulator. The newest addition to the series including MudRunner and Spintires, SnowRunner provides you with three separate maps, Michigan, Alaska, and Russia, each larger than it's predecessors. The game is Open World and where you can go is only limited to the truck you're driving. The games' Physics are amazing! The trucks feel heavy and loads accentuate this feeling. The mud, water, and snow physics are amazingly accurate, and you'll find yourself stuck more than a few times. There are trucks and trailers hidden throughout the vast maps, and some of these rigs are wildly powerful, though you can also buy new trucks from the shop, the ones hidden around the worlds are often better vehicles. Objectives are scattered everywhere, and there is never really a lack of things to do. This game is as slow-paced as a Semi truck passing through two-foot mud, and that's kind of what the game is. Victory is achieved through truck selection, path choice, and patience. Because of the nature of the game, between scouting paths and arduously working the larger trucks over the unforgiving terrain, there are likely hundreds of hours of gameplay here. Between the Bogs and snowdrifts, you could easily spend a few hours on a single delivery. SnowRunner is an unforgivingly hard game, with a rough progression system, AND level-dependent unlocks, that will test your patients and decision making. Fans of the Franchise will be right at home, and newcomers may be a bit overwhelmed, but with patience can tame these wildly harsh environments.… Expand
Dec 11, 2020There are plenty of reviews that detail the game's mechanics and mud simulation, so seeing as I am writing this roughly six months afterThere are plenty of reviews that detail the game's mechanics and mud simulation, so seeing as I am writing this roughly six months after release, I am going to focus more on the support from the developers this game has seen post-release.
Let me disclose that I'm a sucker for this sort of sim game. I love trucks and vehicles generally, I love logistical puzzles, and I like a game that lets me play at my own pace. If this sounds like you, you're going to like SnowRunner. If not, think carefully before shelling out your hard-earned cash. Personally, I've put more hours than I care to admit into this game.
Many of the reviews you'll read will complain of bugs that were present and features that weren't at launch. It's hardly debatable that the game could've used more time in the oven before being released. Unfortunately, this trend has continued throughout the season pass DLC content. For example, the most recent expansion includes a new cabin system that requires you to craft and deliver cabins for the workers at your various project sites. It's a great idea and adds welcome depth to the gameplay, but this addition came with bugs. For example: 1) if you leave a cabin in a worksite after the mission is finished, it causes the map screen to go into a frenzy whenever it's opened, and 2) several missions are meant to require 3 cabins but the developers accidentally set it to 10 cabins, which requires an absurd amount of work.
This has been a trend; an update comes out and adds features or fixes old bugs, but breaks something else. Players then wait weeks for whatever was broken to be fixed.
Fortunately, any bugs that have been introduced have historically been resolved, but due to the process console developers have to go through to get updates certified, the wait is often long. I have confidence that the new bugs will be fixed, but I have also had to come to terms with the fact that I will have to find work-arounds in the meantime and simply not do some of the broken missions until they're resolved.
To their credit, the developers listen to the player community. A feature that was glaringly lacking, the ability to secure trucks on trailers, recently arrived and works well. The controversial steering mechanics now have a toggle in the settings that allows you to switch between a "steering wheel" setting, which is more arcade-like, and a "gamepad" setting, which is more realistic. Most of the smaller bugs and game-crashing bugs have been ironed out.
If you plan on playing coop, be aware that the issues that you sometimes see with online play for a game from a small developer are present here. Latency issues, animations sometimes not syncing, trailer physics being wacky, etc. For these reasons, I keep a separate save game for multiplayer to avoid corrupting my main save. In an ideal world, that wouldn't be necessary, but here we are.
In sum, if you are interested in this game, I have two suggestions. If you want a fully-polished experience, consider giving the developers another six months to use their paying player base as beta testers. On the other hand, if you don't mind browsing forums and social media sites to problem solve with your fellow players, you'll have an enjoyable, addictive experience. Personally, I've had more fun in this game than I've had playing any solo game in quite some time. Being into trucks and logistical puzzles isn't enough to enjoy this game, though -- you need to have patience both for the slow pace of the driving and the slow pace of the developers and the constraints they face with fixing bugs quickly on consoles. For those reasons, this game gets a 7/10 for the time being, but one can be mostly confident that it will only get better as time passes.… Expand
Apr 30, 2020Je me rappelle, j'avais acheté MudRunner à sa sortie et aucun bug bloquant ne m'avait... bloqué ! et là avec sa suite SnowRunner (qui coûteJe me rappelle, j'avais acheté MudRunner à sa sortie et aucun bug bloquant ne m'avait... bloqué ! et là avec sa suite SnowRunner (qui coûte l'air de rien 10 balles de plus...) voici le bug, résultat d'un autre bug qui aboutit au chargement infini de la partie : coincé dans une boucle, le jeu charge jusqu'à l'infini et au delà...
Mais ne metteons pas le bahut avant la charrue ou le camion avant la remorque ! ou après... je reviens au garage, je ressors le camion et là, grosse bataille de polygons qui s'enchevêtrent et le camion qui s'enfonce dans le sol jusqu'à quasiment disparaître ! impossible de conduire ou faire quoi que ce soit : le moteur 3D est parti en vrille...
On revient au menu du jeu, on recharge la partie... bienvenue dans le chargement infini ! on re-quitte le jeu, ciomplètement cette fois, on le relance... on est au menu, on charge... bienvenue dans le chargement infini ! pas moyen de récupérer une autre sauvegarde puisque ça sauvegarde automatiquement... et on a pas le choix de toute façon ! ou le choix de recommencer... une nouvelle partie !... tu te fous de ma gueule, là ? sale jeu de merde buggué jusqu'au trognon !
Je t'explique quand même, juste au cas où : c'est un jeu de bahut très lent et très laborieux, surtout que contrairement au précédent (MudRunner) on ne se contente plus de livrer des rondins... on livre ici tout et n'importe quoi et il y a douze mille trucs à faire sur 3 cartes différentes, très grandes... vu que j'ai déjà passé je ne sais combien d'heures, il est putain hors de question que je recommence le merdier, t'as compris ?
D'autant que contrairement au jeu d'avant, tout est devenu payant... eh oui, il faut tout acheter, les bahuts et les améliorations, les remorques, les machins et les bidules... avec l'argent du jeu hein (je précise) des **** boulots qu'on accomplit péniblement, la sueur au front comme un crevard de smicard !
Donc voilà, plus qu'à attendre un patch qui on l'espère va réparer ce putain de bordel à cul parce que là, le jeu, il est en panne et il est hors de question de devoir recommencer parce que le jeu a décidé de chier dans la colle !!
Donc, pour l'instant, c'est 0 ! je peux pas continuer ma partie, donc c'est 0. Et ne l'achetez pas, surtout pas, car le jeu est tout cassé pour l'instant !! saloperie... mes 50 euros à la poubelle !!… Expand
