Forget trains: driving huge trucks is way more fun. And that’s exactly what you can do in SnowRunner, Maximum Games’ follow-up to MudRunner. The clue’s in the name: this time you’ll be tackling snowy terrains. It’s tricky, but it’s also a hell of a lot of fun. This is no arcade racer; you can blaze around corners at lightning-fast speeds. You’ll need to take your time, carefully steer your truck and – probably more often than not – end up winching yourself out of a ditch. But it’s all part of being a truck driver.

There are a host of real-world vehicles for you to drive and a number of real-world locations. You’ll need to learn how to load up your cargo and get to grips with different vehicles; being behind the wheel of a pick-up trucks feels very different from an articulated lorry, for example. And you’ll need to adjust your routes accordingly, too: a huge 18-wheeler isn’t going to make it down a tiny dirt path no matter how hard you try. SnowRunner is challenging, but it’s fun, and that’s why it’s one of the best simulation games on Xbox One.
