Spintires MudRunner brings a new experience on the racing genre, being much better than its predecessor thanks to a new open world map and great quality settings. A game only for those with patience due to its terrible camera.

Spintires: MudRunner is utterly unique, and as a driving simulator of a niche field it is basically unparalleled. However, the difficulty level and lack of pace are likely going to make it a very niche game, while the camera is an extra challenge in itself. Still, there's grit, determination, freedom and reward to be found here for those ready to wade in.

This game should not be fun. It has almost everything except its phenomenal mud and vehicle physics working against it. Often unfriendly to the point of misery, Mudrunner asks a lot from those who chose to engage it, but like many classic tough games, success simply feels sweeter. The music choices and achievement prompts are straight out of a PS1-era extreme sports title, but hearing the faint sound of butt rock as you near a lumber mill with your final load of logs re-invigorates you like seeing light after eons of darkness. This is the closest we'll ever get to a video game based on William Friedkin's classic thriller Sorcerer. If you are a fan of non-conventional PC games, I cannot recommend Spintires:Mudrunner enough. 9/10 mudcaked super swampers

With its pedestrian pace and delivery objectives, Mudrunner won't appeal to an awful lot of people, but that doesn't stop it being a fun and often relaxing experience.

There's no denying that Spintires is a different take on the transportation simulator game, but different isn't enough if the game in question doesn't keep consistency in its simming. A decent title to potter about in, especially with others, but whenever additional rules are implemented, Spintires is apt to suffer.

Spintires: Mudrunner is a hard-crusted simulation title that makes you earn your fun through hard work and determination. It's certainly not for everyone with a crawling pace and a muted aesthetic, but the impressive physics and sandbox design make for some great moments, especially if you're playing with others. The UI and vehicle handling will have you wrestling for control at times, but if you persevere, this is a game with surprisingly rewarding gameplay and plenty to get stuck into.

Spintires: MudRuner is a breath of fresh air for the usual player of the sport driving genre. In addition, with its fantastic atmosphere, it will transport us to the purest nature. However, its high difficulty can make us lose interest and leave it aside.
