A low country soundtrack that wouldn't sound out of place in Firefly is lovely listening, although tracks do start repeating themselves during long play sessions. Good sound design on the vehicles sells you on the setting, but some frequent audio glitches let the game down.
SnowRunner looks downright lovely in the game's best moments, whether that's the wilderness dappled with sunlight during the day, or a foggy small town at night. Mud and snow physics are excellent, but there are some blurry textures and dull looking areas here and there.
The game feels infinitely playable at it's best, with so many tasks and contracts to take on, and the simple puzzle of how to traverse each bit of terrain is fun to solve. But playing for hours and feeling like you've accomplished very little can be very frustrating.
A weak tutorial means that SnowRunner's intricacies, of which there are many, aren't well explained. Frustrating UI makes it difficult to find vital information needed to complete contracts, leading to the game's objectives feeling muddy in all the wrong ways.
A list that will take a long time to complete, just like the game itself, but you will find some fun challenges to take on.
