    It’s not survival horror with trucks. It’s survival horror for trucks. You as a driver, as a person, as a foot on a gas pedal and a pair of hands, don’t exist. Whether it’s because Oovee didn’t want to fuss with character models or because it’s an intentional effort to focus on the element of machines vs nature without mere humanity in the middle to muck it all up, the world of Spintires is like Maximum Overdrive, that dopey horror movie where trucks come alive and drive themselves around. Not for the cheese factor, of course.

    Spintires is a very good game. It's hard to imagine a better truck driving model - game engine paired with Havok covers up any issues the game might have (and it has some minor ones). Spintires is a game with an original theme and a great example of a simple, but extremely playable product. Great job.

    Without a doubt Spintires is the best trucking game I've ever played. When muddy physics are combined with crappy vehicles, the outcome is truly unique. Spintires is a survival game, where you have to make do with big cars in a soft terrain. [Aug 2014]

    Great mud-parcours for fans of enormous green diesel monsters - needs a bit more "game" though.

    I have never grown fond of cars because almost nothing resembles being a car while standing next to Mercury Park Lane from the '59. And to drive Mercury Park Lane from the '59 in the 21st century is not exactly the most practical thing to do with your savings. However, I keep remembering our family Wartburg – a blue station wagon which clawed us through Podkrkonoší or Jeseníky, and that rusty beast did beat everything, weathered from fir branches and mudded from forest roads around Rejvíz. Why so many words? Because it is a must to enjoy the Spintires.

    Spintires is a simulation game in which you drive through Russia with different off-road vehicles. The in-game physics are a blast and are very realistic, but overall Spintires can be kind of boring to some players. You only have one objective to complete, and all the maps look alike. Still, if you just enjoy riding through dirt, this is the game for you.

    There are quite a few positive aspects: the driving physics feel authentic, the real-time deformation of the surroundings is impressive too. But Spintires lacks depth, be it more varied missions or even the smallest economy system. This is more a tech demo than a game.

    Honestly, I was looking at the graphics of the soft bodies of the tires with the deformation of the terrain while going through water. WowHonestly, I was looking at the graphics of the soft bodies of the tires with the deformation of the terrain while going through water. Wow this game is AMAZING. It is so incredibly frustrating but it is because of my patience. I see a hard muddy hill, and I think ill skip through the trees.... and it takes 3 times longer. The game is amazing!! Highly recommended to chill out and think with. Expand

You tool around in the mud and explore. The game is best played with at least 1 friend--it's such an enjoyable and hilarious experience. It's also interesting due to the different customizations for each truck. Expand

    I didn't know anything about the game, but since I like driving and the physics looked nice, I bought it.

    It's awesome. It's like Dark
    I didn't know anything about the game, but since I like driving and the physics looked nice, I bought it.

    It's awesome. It's like Dark Souls for driving fans. You have to be carefull, think about your steps and be carefull.

    Pro:
    Physics, Graphics, Immersion. It feels really great. The maps are nicely made too and offer huge challenges, especially in hardcore mode.

    Con:
    Camera sucks, but you can get it work well with the d-pad of the 360 gamepad.
    Just woods. A sand-map would have been great.
    A map editor or random generated maps would be nice too.
    Saving several maps would be nice.

    But it's so fun to play!

    The Simulation is great. The Game in the Sim is great, its challenging and fun and not to easy as like many games/sims out there. The physicsThe Simulation is great. The Game in the Sim is great, its challenging and fun and not to easy as like many games/sims out there. The physics are great the Graphics are nice. I love it played it 20 + hours so far and only on 2 maps, so plenty content for me left. But i give - 3 points for: The Camera Controlls ( you get used to it but its annoying often) The Save System... pls let as do 2 or 3 Saves not only 1.
    And the worst for me: I always need to switch between Fullscreen and Window with ALT ENTER cause my Mouse Pointer dont work in Fullscreen.
