    It’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.

    SnowRunner 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.

    SnowRunner 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.

    Basically, 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.

    SnowRunner’s peculiar brand of off-road ordeals is addictive, deep, and rewarding when played in the right spirit.

    This game has been very successful in bringing this job into the interactive scene.

    SnowRunner 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.

    Spintires and Mudrunner were already great games, but without missions and tasks it was quite boring. Now Snowrunner is perfected. The gameSpintires and Mudrunner were already great games, but without missions and tasks it was quite boring. Now Snowrunner is perfected. The game should not be evaluated by players who have nothing to say about this style. Huge maps, many types of tasks and everyone is fun. with souls games, the beginning (about 10 hours) is always difficult to work out somehow, but the result is worth it.Fun for 100 +++ hours guaranteed Expand

    Snowrunner is a strategic game in which patients and planning is rewarded and failure to do so can lead to failure. In Snowrunner to go fastSnowrunner is a strategic game in which patients and planning is rewarded and failure to do so can lead to failure. In Snowrunner to go fast you must go slow as speeds can lead to running into a ditch, off a cliff or ending up hopelessly stuck in mud up to the bumper. If you have a need for speed, this game is not for you. If scouting out the best route, prepositioning assets such as fuel and deciding on the best vehicle with the appropriate tires to get the job done sounds like fun, then you will love this game.

    There are three regions with very different topography. Michigan has four maps and is a mix of mountain, trees, streams, dirt roads, mud and bogs. Alaska which has four maps is much the same but blanketed in snow with frozen ponds and some deep snowdrifts. The Russian region has three maps and is a muddy nightmare with deeply rutted roads that will tip over all but the largest trucks.

    The trucks are broken into Highway trucks (not very useful so best to sell for cash), Heavy Duty trucks which will do most jobs as they are powerful and maneuverable, Heavy trucks which are big, powerful but less maneuverable, Off-road trucks which I tend not to use much as the Heavy Duty and Heavy trucks work well, and lastly there are the scouts which are small, maneuverable and get good gas mileage.

    Something I love about this game is getting to know the capability of the trucks. The truck I use most is a Heavy Duty White Star truck. The more jobs I did with it and the more I upgraded it the more I came to trust and rely upon it to do the tough jobs. Each truck can be configured in many different ways which can increase its power and traction. Trucks can also be configured to carry many different loads, so you can have it be a bed, flat bed, utility or fuel truck, high or low saddle etc.

    The physics of the game are amazing. Trucks behave realistically on paved roads, hard packed dirt roads, mud, snow, streamers and rocks. Ice can crack under your wheels. The graphics are beautiful and add to the immersive experience.

    Great game but there are a few issues. The tutorial does a bad job at explaining things which will lead to some frustration in the early part of the game as you navigate the learning curve. The side view mirrors are useless. Without functioning side view mirrors the cab view is of limited use which is too bad as the truck interiors are beautifully rendered. You can shoulder check but it is a poor substitute for side view mirrors. There is a story, but it is barebones and I wish they would have fleshed it out. Also being able to exit the trucks and walk around would have been a cool addition. Sadly the best tires cannot be unlocked until you reach driver level 12 which will take a while to reach. This makes the early game harder than the latter part of the game.

    Snowrunner is a huge game that will easily take 75+ hours to complete. I love completing contracts while listening to podcasts as it reminds me of my time as a truck driver and listening to the radio. Some of the trucks in the game are reminiscent of trucks I have driven in real life and I find the game versions to be a very good facsimile.

    I highly recommend this game for those who like work sims.

    SnowRunner 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
