The developers of Impact Winter have created a solid survival game with a unique art style that will appeal to a certain type of player. But whether you enjoy it will really depend on how much you enjoy the micromanagement of the games' systems and can forgive its limited narrative and repetitive resource grind. For my money – there is better out there.

Try to survive 30 days during a nuclear winter in hustile surroundings. A freedom in choosing your own playstyle is great, but the game lacks finishing touches.

Without convoluted gameplay systems and a myriad of menus to get your head around, Impact Winter's streamlined approach to the genre is faultlessly welcoming and instantly engaging. It means it's perfectly at home on console, too, and considering the budget-price release, you probably ought to at least give it a try.

Though it's not all negative, Impact Winter contains plenty of issues that many will consider as barriers to enjoyment. Ultimately, it's these flaws that'll stop Impact Winter from making a, well, impact.

There is an extremely interesting world on display in Impact Winter and there are traces of greatness scattered throughout. Unfortunately, there are far too many examples of cumbersome, clumsy, and frustrating execution that end up melting away the game's frosty facade. With such a heavy emphasis on multiple playthroughs, most players would be lucky to stomach their first 30 days of survival.

It's not a game you'd call "fun", but the atmosphere and wealth of tasks and locations make it well worth your time.

Impact Winter can be an immersive survival game for those who are able to look past the technical issues that could possibly hurt the gameplay for some.

The initial setup for Impact Winter's frozen post-apocalyptic world is effectively haunting and grim. The trick does get repeated a little too often though, and the bleak situation you were previously invested in becomes too much of a chore and less about humanity struggling against nature.

Impact Winter has very good ideas, especially regarding the gameplay and its artistic choices. Unfortunately, they get buried under a pletora of technical problems and a choppy frame-rate. Just like the snow, Impact Winter hides the remains of our civilization in the game.

The console version of Impact Winter is, on the whole, a more polished game than it was at the debut on PC, but its good ideas are still marred by a troublesome framerate and a good amount of small bugs and inconsistencies.
