Spintires™ is an Intel® award winning off-road driving experience designed to challenge the player's driving skill and endurance.
Take responsibility of operating large all-terrain Soviet vehicles and venture across the rugged landscapes with only a map and compass to guide you. Explore the levels and unlock portions of the map whilst discovering new trucks, fuelling stations, garages and lumber mills.
Collect lumber with the crane attachments and try to deliver them to the objectives. Try not to damage your vehicle or consume all of the fuel, prior to completing the objectives. Use the surroundings to your advantage, you may need to winch yourself free!
The real-time deformable terrain will challenge even the most seasoned offroader. Do you accept the challenge?
Yes it's a driving simulator, but not your average kind. This is offroad logging and exploration like you've never seen. Real time ground deformation and tree destruction. Real time water physics that can damage your vehicle if you're not careful. Winch your truck out of trouble, but only if you plan your routes accordingly. Multiplayer mode lets your buddies bring extra fuel and repair trucks. Tipped your truck too far and lost your load? Worry not my Russian friend, there's mobile cranes to reload the logs and complete the objective. Manage your fuel use wisely and you won't need to make extra trips to the fuel depot across the map either.
This game can have you lost for hours if you let it, it is a true endurance test for will and overcoming obstacles such as the wildly impressive mud physics. The vehicles respond realistically to the surroundings with the loving recreation of caked in dirt on tyres once you emerge from an extremely muddy area. The game screams passion from the creator yet lacks variety, I would have enjoyed it more if you could deliver more objects other than lumber and if there was a steam workshop open for modders and also dedicated servers that allow you to drive in user-made locations. Apart from that, this is a solid buy and a lot of fun if you are even only slightly intrigued.
Spintires is a game that gets some things very right, but unfortunately gets a lot of things wrong. Before reading this please note, I am a BIG offroading guy and I LOVE offroading games. The good: Great offroading physics, good graphics, and wonderful terrain effects. Mods are also a plus. The vehicle, map and graphics mods are what saves this game and actually kept me playing it for longer than just a few hours. The Bad: Spintires is an indie game and it shows. The game bugs that cause it to crash to desktop, a camera system that makes it impossible to see 60% of the time(and makes you fight it constantly), repetitive sound bytes galore. The game also had no budget or time to actually focus on there being an actual game either. The game has no story, no plot, and the objectives that are in place are extremely boring (pick up logs and drive them to a spot on the map). The maps are boring and all look the same. There is nothing to do in this game other than delivering those logs. There are big maps, but they have nothing to discover. All of the maps feel and look the same. Worse of all, the game constantly erases your save data. The areas of the map you "reveal" will stay revealed and your game will be remembered for about a day, then the game will forget you ever played it and will revert everything to the beginning. Everything you unlocked will be locked again. This game is definitely a budget game and should be bought only when cheap. Hopefully Spintires 2 will learn from the original's mistakes.
When I first got it spintires was an amazing game, but after maybe 10-20 hours of playing it gets really boring. Mods can be added, but still the concept becomes boring. If you are looking for a game you will only play every once in a while, Spintires is the right game for you, but if you will play it a lot expext to enjoy it for a month or two.
Spintires should be thought of as a physics and graphical base for mods. As a game, its kind of boring. There is no motivation to do any of the objectives. The game only becomes fun when you go to one of the many mod sites and install car and map mods. Then the game becomes an offroaders dream game. Exploring becomes a blast and the physics are great. The game does have some odd camera controls and shifting but overall, with mods it is great.
