On the occasion of SnowRunner's launch it is worthwhile to take a look at the reviews of the game in the industry media. The title has received positive reviews so far, with the PlayStation 4 version boasting an average rating of 81/100 on Metacritic. Some critics note that the game is a big step forward for the series. The title is praised for its realistic physics of driving through difficult terrain, careful attention to detail, map design, addictive, challenging but rewarding gameplay, large day one content and attractive visuals. According to a Screen Rant journalist, all this makes SnowRunner "one of the best simulators in years and one of the best games of the year so far".
