First things first: never play this game in single player, its like having only 1/4 of the fun.

One of the best games i heve played in my life.
The reasoning for this is that this game looks like another dull singleplayer simulator ALTHOUGH it isnt!
The goal is very simple, get logs from one side of the map (lumbercamp) to the other side('s) of the map (sawmill).
But achieving this goal is not as easy as it seems.
Yesterday before i started a Hardcore map with 4 friends we discussed around 15 min what our plan of approach was for a specific map.
We thought we had it all figured out... we were wrong.
But we had the uttermost fun in being wrong while our trucks broke down, fell down, did a roll over, got stuck, or drowned.
Underestimate this game while you buy it. and recieve a big fat middle finger in your face while playing and having stomach ache's of the laughing.

Do you recommend this game? HELL YES

Spintires is an offroad driving game where you get behind the wheel of a number of Russian vehicles and drive them through all the mud you could possibly hope for. Using only your map and compass you have to navigate the rugged terrain in order to complete objectives such as collecting and delivering lumber.

+Great graphics
+Quite a few different trucks, each with customisation options and they are all quite different to each other, in appearance and performance
+Amazing mud physics, the deformation caused by driving through mud looks realistic and is excellent
+Several maps, all of them are quite different to each other and the vehicles available vary between each one
+The winch system is great and the power of it feels quite realistic
+Multiplayer, particularly with friends, is a lot of fun
+Driving controls are good, as are the crane controls (used for putting lumber in your trailer)
+You have to discover the different parts of the map so even if you don't want to do the main objective there is a lot to do on each map
+They did a very good job in making it difficult to judge water depth

+/-The majority of the gameplay comes from getting yourself out of the mud, personally I think it's fun but it might put some people off

-The camera controls and the camera itself are awful. The controls are very sensitive, when you zoom out it automatically zooms in making it very hard to see when using big trucks, it has a very strange centre, sometimes it pans by itself, you can only move it on the x-axis, it has awkward angles and it's difficult to get it at the angle you want
-The devs still haven't added a first person camera which was promised very early on after its launch
-The relationship between the dev and the community isn't great (see forums)
-Infrequent updates despite being promised regular large content updates
-For what there is (i.e. the number of maps and trucks) it isn't worth the £19.99 price tag
-There's not much difference between the demo and the full game
-It feels very unfinished

Verdict:
6

It's a fun offroad driving game but it has too many issues for me to recommend it at full price, grab it on sale and play it with friends.

What you need to know:

Spintires has a tech demo! Try it first at http://www.spintires.com/#!/demo

1 - Some people love the game, others hate it. Try before you buy.

2 - The publisher/developer/customer relationship is quite troubled (read: significant bugs and unexpected changes.)

See - https://steamcommunity.com/app/263280/discussions/0/622954023416537887

Many Spintires players *love* the game and would like to recommend it. However, we cannot yet do so given the current instablity of the game itself.

I find it strange that I like this game as much as I do. After all I get easily frustrated and angry when I get my car stuck in the snow. But I find SPINTIRES delightful and satisfying from how much hard work it forces you to put into it.

SPINTIRES is a game that puts you in the middle of some isolated forest or marsh, and your goal is to deliver logs from the lumber yard to the mill. Sounds straightforward.
However, the terrain will prove to be your biggest obstacle. Most 'roads' are nothing more than muddy trenches, destinations sit at the top of steep hills, and it will become necessary to haul logs and trailers through rivers...which may end in disaster. Fortunately, you have some pretty hefty trucks at your disposal, a couple of which can barrel over smaller trees with no problem.

The aforementioned satisfaction comes from trudging through the mud and reaching your destination with your load intact. There's a wonderful sense of accomplishment when you get your vehicle stuck and manage to winch yourself to a tree and pull yourself out.

The physics SPINTIRES is something to boast about. The terrain changes under your tires, depending on the vehicle you're operating; mud gets kicked up, roads get chewed up, small bridges might collapse under your weight.
You can play more casually by respawning your vehicle to an unlocked garage or not have to worry about shifting gears manually. But there is a hardcore mode where respawning is disabled, providing a more realistic experience; if your vehicle is stuck submerged in a river, you need a bigger truck to pull it out.

Even so, at the start of each level your traveller's map will be covered in black spots. To uncover these, for better or for worse, you need to drive to the source of these spots to remove the cloaking. This promotes more aggressive exploration, though this is more of a negative than a positive for some players, as there is no option to have the entire map visible.

There is a multiplayer option in SPINTIRES as well as steering wheel support, though there are many people who have had issues with both lately. Briefly glancing through forums, there might be some fixes that can clear up these issues, but hopefully the developers will look into the problems quickly and patch them out.

All in all, I highly recommend SPINTIRES. I've sunk a lot of hours into delivering logs across a marsh and walked away feeling satisfied and very entertained. Sounds strange, but, if you give it a try, you might be surprised at how fun it can be.

Russian Road SImulator 2014.

I am waiting for DashCam DLC.

10/10 Would Road rage again




On a serious note, there is no way of saving progress and from what I heard developers abandoned this game. So pick it up on sale for instant non-permanent fun, nothing much else left to say here.

My score: ★★★☆☆

I really wanted to get into this. I REALLY did. I have a friend who plays it all the time and recommended it to me, so of course I gave into temptation and bought it. Now please, before you downvote this simply because you see I don't recommend it, the least you can do is read my review. This is not only my opinion, but the truth, which people deserve to see.

Spintires is not a *bad* game, per se, but it has problems, and so do the developers. With every single update comes more bugs and glitches. I've seen it all, from spawning in the ground, to a huge blocky shadow around vehicles, and almost broken multiplayer. The devs also said that fixing bugs now has priority over new features, and while that's good in a way, it also just shows you that something is obviously wrong. A recent update also made every single map break entirely, making these poor modders have to reconfigure their maps just to work again, all because of one update. To add to that, usually with every update comes wiped save files, so you can forget trying to "beat" a map.

Also, now the developers come out and said that they are pushing official mod support by another month. Or more. They have done this a few times at this point. And modding is what makes this game a lot more enjoyable. But right now, modding is a chore, and in the end when I actually get in game to try mods, the fun just does not last for some reason. Not to mention they are already discussing Spintires 2, the completely unnecessary sequel. Why? Just why? I don't understand why you can't just keep making this game better. I seriously hope this wasn't some sort of cash grab so you can fund your dumb sequel.

I hate to say it, but without mods, this game is just boring, and slightly frustrating. I do realize that yes, this is basically a logging simulator game. But when you get down to it, it's just a ton of driving through thick mud with super slow trucks, and you can't enjoy it if you don't have patience. Sometimes I'll get so far with a truck, but I end up completely stuck in mud or flip over, and I have to start all over, or bring another truck to it and pull it out. In a nutshell, this entire game seems like a chore. The camera is also very annoying. A lot of people say "you'll get used to it", but if you've ever played a game with a good camera, I don't think you'll find it very pleasant. Go ahead and try the demo to see for yourself. It's almost no different in the current version.

Despite me not enjoying it right now, however, I am certainly rooting for this game. There are some good things about the game, such as the great graphics, physics, and terrain deformation. It certainly has potential, but something is clearly wrong with the way it's being updated. The game should have, by no means, been removed from Early Access. So again, for right now I advise you to not buy this, but certainly keep an eye on the updates. Who knows, maybe this game will straighten out soon.

Spintires - an all-terrain off-road simulator - has great potential and it is always nice to see an indie developer making something different, something exciting. While not many maps and vehicles are available the already existing ones give you enough challenge to spend dozens of hours with the game.

The concept of Spintires is very simple: every map has a location for the lumber you need to deliver elsewhere. This location along with the drop-off point is shown on your map. They are, of course, quite far from each other (usually positioned at opposite ends of the map. The terrain is usually difficult to navigate on so you need to carefully plan where you'd like to go and which vehicle you'd like to take. Additionally, the game does not reveal the map for you - certain "cloaking" areas are placed and in order to get rid of them you need to approach their epicenter.

Navigation requires you to pay attention. Naturally, the best is to play with a friend as in coop mode you can not only deliver more lumber at once but help each other if stuck in the mud. Respawning is possible but only in casual mode: real challenge begins only for hardcore gamers! Near garages certain extensions can be installed - utility assets are available for repair work and you can install a tank for the fuel to have long-lasting petrol available.

I like the complexity of the game and having translations in many languages is always a plus for me. The game looks nice - especially the water and mud effects look great during interactions with your vehicles. The only downside is the missing sound effects for your friend - you simply do not hear the engine of their car but only your own. And you cannot see their tracks in the mud which would be nice if you go on separate ways only to meet up later on because of the objective.

Overall, I am really satisfied with this game. It has potential and while rumor has it the relationship between publisher and developer is not exactly great with regular updates this game can be even greater!

Thank you for fixing the 2k15 bug and it appears you increased the winch distance! This game is amazing! Bought 2 copies when it was on sale for when i get a second PC my wife wants to play too even! Keep the updates coming and I'm glad they work so hard to keep their unfinished game bug free instead of throwing it all together like others.

Just a side note for others looking to play this with older laptops/PC, My Laptop:

Dell XPS
Intel i5 dual core hyperthreaded 2.67Ghz
4GB ram
Nvidia GT420M
Mircosoft usb wireless xbox controller reciever
usb mouse

Playable at medium settings through an HDMI cable onto a 55" LED TV in 1080i FPS 25-35 while recording with OBS :)

Spintires is a unique game with beautiful graphics. So close to being a good game...

Unfortunately it has a terrible camera design which leads to much frustration. Achievements are hit-or-miss. I know of at least 3 that didn’t unlock when completed. Who knows how many are bugged.

Why do developers keep releasing unfinished and poorly programmed games? Because the consumers keep accepting it.

I like the concept of this game and I used to enjoy playing it.
Oovee keeps on implanting more bugs and glitches with every 'update'
I do not recommend buying this game and wasting your money.
I have played alpha games with less bugs and glitches than this Spintires.
Multiplayer is useless now since there are clipping bugs happening on every level.
If you survive that then the disconnect glitch will hit you or even crash the game.
There is very limited content and they stifle creativity by making user content unavailable.

Do i reccomend the game? yes, the game is sweet when it works.

Do i reccomend giving money to the publisher oovee? no!

its up to you, read around in the forums and you find out oovee is made up of amateurs. the game was basically fine at releasy summer 2014(as i bought it), month later, winter 2014 they started changeing stuff. in the last 4 month they broke the game twice so it was unplayable in multiplayer, a crash was guaranteed more or less. that was in december and march.
to push out a "hot" fix takes like 3 to 4 weeks for oovee.

so if you want to give money to them, i am not sure, i already have i cant help it. still i give thumbs up cause i reccomend the game itself. its a nice programm and you can spend quiet some hours with it.

At this time.. I have 19 hours in game.
I have not delivered a single log... lol.. Not for failure, but I simply have spent all this time so far exploring, tearing up muddy terrain and seeing what I can do with various pieces of equipment for fun and 'just because'.
Two things I have decided.
1. Legacy is currently the only way to play. Simply because you can still mod it, adding many maps and vehicle changes or new ones. The modders have created some amazing items, both vehicles and add ons for them. The new release atm does not support these items or maps. I actually had a letter from CS over at Oovee about this, ( I wrote them actually praising the as is game, and simply asked more or less nicely about the future minus the STEAM forum comments ) The answer was simply.. " we have tried new things, still have some ideas, some seem to be good, some are simply a failure both in work and the community response. We are currently working on the modding issue and additional content, but it is a longer process than we anticipated to get the results we are looking for. " I guess you can interpret that however you feel, for me it at least feels like they are working on more.
2. Achievements and Co op play... if you play in legacy mode with mods.. you lock your achievements, and only some of the mods seem to function / or allow online play. Something big and technical with the files etc.. basically is it worth it to play solo with lots of maps and pretty much unlimited amount of new vehicles and items?? For me, yes at the moment.
SO: Bottome line. At its current price is it worth the $30? Honestly, no. Not for the current build. HOWEVER: Legacy is included so you simply set your BETA tab to LEGACY mode. Voila. Now it is totally worth it to me. Like I said, 19 hours atm and not a single log even delivered.. simply because its to much fun just doing other things.
ALSO: No, not a game for everyone. If you like things like long haul trucker games, minus the management, maybe the simple act of doing something just for a fun past time like Eviscera Cleanup.. yes! You will really enjoy this. If you can laugh at the problems mud / water / and wrecking your truck can cause.. then yes! If your looking for excitement, death, blood and mayhem.. no.. not this one.
If you are familiar with European mud, real mud like tank and military training grounds... this will bring flashbacks to those old cold war training days in ice cold mud up to your vehicles roof, sinking in the soup and wondering wth your doing there... Also those tricks we learned for getting around... they work here.
Good luck.
ADD::: My only real complaint: You can, even in HARDCORE mode instantly turn on / off Differential lock and all wheel drives. So you can instantly save your vehicle in many cases. Which is ok.. except that most of these vehicle types, especially the old recycled military ones ( non mod even ) do not allow that. You have to stop, be in nuetral and 'man handle' the gear box into position. So to keep the feeling of the long remembered and dreaded mud, I stop and do this.. have I watched a few trucks sink or slide while doing it? Yep. Is that more realistic? Yep, to me it is.
