Most awesome offroad sim I have ever seen

This is a very fun game that I've spent many hours on and sure, it can be frustrating and quite annoying when you get stuck in the mud on the near end of the level but hey, it's what this game is all about. Well the camera can be annoying at times but game developers said that they will fix it and I really hope they do. I like the idea that you can also unlock various vehicles through the gameplay which also keeps me playing. That is all from me, thanks and I hope you too will enjoy this game!

Awesome fun if you're into vehicle sims, and/or offroading!

I have to admit that im a sucker for sim type games. When I heard about "SpinTires" I got kind of excited. Then I found the demo, and I knew I wanted the full game. This game is set in the Russian wilderness where the "goal" is to haul loads of logs with your big heavy trucks, across the map to lumber yards. It has great physics, and the mud looks and reacts great. The trucks are pretty detailed and they did a good job giving them their own characteristics. Some are more powerful and can haul a load better, while others are better offroad in general, even though they are quite as powerful. I ended up spending many hours on the first map before I even completed it. I usually ended up messing around for fun. It did feel good beating that map though. The next one was a tad harder since there is a big river than splits the map. One of my trucks even got swept downstream. lol Still not sure if I am going to be able to winch it out. Lots of fun though. I personally highly recommend the game at full price. I paid the full price and honestly have no regrets. I cant say that about many others in my collection! Oh, and the devs promise many more updates!

Nice environmental effects

Spintires is a game where you control big trucks and drive them around doing different things, like collecting lumber, etc. My favourite part about the game is the environmental effects. Terrain deforms realistically, and water actually acts like it should when you drive through it, something which really impressed me. If you want a game that's fun, this probably isn't for you. It gets really repetitive and boring after a bit. If you want something nice to look at and play around in, sure, buy it, but you should probably wait for a sale.

Impressive Technology

Spintires is one of the most realistic vehicle simulators on the PC market. The technology that is used in the game is absolutely amazing. Graphics are top-notch and the physics are incredible. The only real problem with the game is the gameplay itself. There is hardly any content besides lumbering wood and other jobs. There is multiplayer but you'll need to find a buddy willing to cough up money for some laughs in the game. A great technological achievement but not exactly a fun game.

Do you like to get stuck in the mud?

If so, this is a game for you. Well seriously, Spintires is a game about collecting lumber on pretty realistic rough terrain like woods and wet dirt road. You get to operate bunch of different vehicles that all function differently and have their uses like collecting lumber and transporting it. It's pretty hard to explain what the appeal in this game is, but it's not bad, it does what it does really well, but the gimmick doesn't last.

It's neat how the ground deforms under the heavy machinery, I don't think any game has done that kind of thing before and it looks really good. The problem really is the lack of content especially considering the price. It's fun to operate this large number of vehicles and learn to maneuver in the terrain, but that's not enough to make it last that long. There is multiplayer that I haven't tried, but as far as single player goes it loses its appeal after some hours. There is actually a demo available in the developres website so check that out first if you're not sure. If you have couple of friends interested then go ahead and buy, I've heard it's much better in coop.
