Impact Winter is able to melt survival, management and a touch of GdR with very interesting results. It's not a perfect game, but the mix of genres is well done.

Despite some minor gripes, Impact Winter is an otherwise solid game. It has the look, feel and general gameplay of an almost perfect game. However, its poor controls and clunky interfaces do ultimately bog it down. Impact Winter is a game about exploration and managing resources and, whilst difficult, it is a very rewarding experience if you invest the time and immerse yourself in its cold, frozen depths.

Impact Winter does some great things with the survival formula, and its focus on cooperation really forces you to think twice about your actions, but its technical issues on PC mean you’ll have to wait for some patches to get things in working order

The conversion of Impact Winter took advantage of a great process of polishing (applied to the PC version as well), but it did not turn the game into a masterpiece: the design flaws are still here, as well as the intricate control system and some fuzzy storytelling.

An amazing survival experience, this is an items-management & strategy experience with some 80's details and a great OST and scenario designs.

Between the narrative content, progression systems, and team management, Impact Winter is far more than a simple scavenging simulator. It still embraces the joy of exploration, but challenges players to balance a multitude of risks. Like many story driven games, replay value can feel somewhat limited by the adherence to a script and the game’s achievement system adds little to this. Despite these niggles, I adored wandering the wilds with Jacob. If you have a hankering for a survival game that has some depth to it and own a controller, then Impact Winter is a solid choice.

Impact Winter is the new title from Mojo Banes and its goal is to give a new perspective of the survival genre. However, this game becomes a little bit repetitive after playing for a few hours.

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

Surviving for thirty days in the cold with a survival team is not as simple as it sounds in Impact Winter.

Though it is a fairly solid game, it might be worth waiting a couple more weeks until the development team sorts out the rest of the bugs before trying to survive the frozen abyss that is Impact Winter.
