Like its predecessors, Expeditions: A MudRunner Game is for a specific type of player who wants a driving game instead of a racing game. The player must enjoy messing around with the intricacies of off-road vehicles and doesn't mind experiencing every driving mishap possible. Expeditions isn't a game for everyone, but for those looking for something different from the norm, it's well worth a shot.

As difficult as the previous game but more accessible, Expedition feels like a happy medium for the series. The developers didn't make the game significantly easier, but at the same time failures here don't feel as devastating as they did in SnowRunner.

Expeditions: A MudRunner Game succeeds in being a more varied, interesting and accessible entry in Saber’s Runner series, although it’s still on the challenging side and has niche appeal. We’ve had a great deal of entertainment from it though, and will continue to do so — it’s 70-plus expeditions present a seriously considerable time investment. With DLC and a co-op mode to come, it’s likely to get even better, too. Ultimately, it’s not for everyone. But for those who dream of navigating harsh environments in an assortment of vehicles, it’s a blast.

Expeditions: A MudRunner Game shifts the slow-moving action of its predecessors from small scale levels full of straightforward challenges to a set of large open world maps designed specifically for freewheeling offroad exploration. The magic of SnowRunner et al remains intact here, with a gloriously atmospheric bunch of regions to get busy taming as you push forward through swamps, across rivers and over mountains in a game that genuinely feels like Death Stranding in a truck at points. Co-op mode may be missing at launch, which is a real shame, and there's a few graphical issues to sort just now, but we reckon this is still Saber Interactive's best crack at the offroad sim yet, and that's saying something.

The sequel to the science expedition games Snowrunner and Mudrunner presents a fresh perspective on off-road simulation. Set in untamed wildernesses devoid of traditional roads, players are challenged to adopt a more tactical approach, with new features that offer mixed results. However, it's disappointing to note that upon release, only two environments are available.

Expeditions left a good impression. It sticks to the successful MudRunner or SnowRunner style of terrain simulations. There could be more variety of content, but we got exactly what we expected.

Expeditions: A Mudrunner Game feels less like a mere logistics simulator, and more like a truck version of Death Stranding that feels more exciting to play than Death Stranding itself.

Expeditions: A MudRunner Game is a unique, solid and satisfying experience, pushing the player into increasingly complex and rewarding challenges. It's not perfect and suited to everyone, and it has some major limitations, but it remains recommended for anyone eager for discovery and planning that seeks a vast, challenging but also relaxing experience.

Expeditions: A MudRunner Game offers a similar experience to its predecessors, without offering anything identical. In fact, by taking the player a little more by the hand, the title is without doubt the most accessible in the series. Not to mention that the team at Saber Interactive have done a near-perfect job on the technical front. There are currently around 100 hours of content, and plenty of DLC is also planned to add missions. However, the title may not appeal to older players who lose a certain sense of freedom. Not to mention that the overall experience remains very similar.

For lovers of games with advanced exploration, Expeditions: A MudRunner Game is a delight. The various commands for each terrain create a diversity of options that make each interaction unique, and it's even better with the well-built scenery.

With Expeditions: A Mudrunner Game Saber Interactive takes a new spin on the beloved offroad franchise. With a much lesser focus on transportation over exploration, this time more than ever the journey is the goal. A more guided structure eases new players in, while veterans can discover plenty of challenging side missions off the beaten path. While there are some technical issues at launch and the multiplayer is sorely missed (to be added via free update later), the package as a whole is still a solid game for those who don't mind taking it slower.

Expeditions: A MudRunner Game is ultimately what players have known the MudRunner series for. And it is very great to see them employ the “If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.” mentality, where the game is already fun and engaging enough that it doesn’t require any changes to its core approach to off-roading. You can still find excitement and planning yourself ahead with the title and it’s ultimately one of the best simulators for the specific genre of automotive fans. It is highly recommended that give Expeditions: A MudRunner Game a shot if you like to play dirty- I mean, in the mud and rain of course.

Exactly like the reality truck shows demonstrate, driving a heavy vehicle is not for the faint of heart. It requires a strong will, the courage to keep going when all else fails, and, in this case, a passion for investigating the natural sciences that compound our planet. Expeditions: A MudRunner Game took everything that made its foundation great and multiplied it exponentially into one of the most addictive gameplay loops in the modern simulators of our times.

As it stands, Expeditions is pretty much what I expected out of a new entry in this very niched franchise that I was lucky to run into years ago with Spintires. It’s something that those looking for a quirky but immersive open-world experience are bound to eat up. There’s nothing quite like these games anywhere else, and even though others like Alaskan Road Truckers might’ve tried, there’s something to be said about Saber’s knack for steadily improving on and adding to the mix with each new edition, while keeping what makes them so damn addictive in the process.
