SPINTIRES PC Game [Best Price]
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!
Most driving games are about speed. The idea is that if you’re not going fast, you’re not having fun. Fair enough. That’s a pretty safe approach. So speed is the basic currency in a driving game.
But what Spintires presupposes is, what if it’s not? The foundation for Spintires, literally and figuratively, is mud. The developers at Oovee have built an offroad diving game around the physics of sucking squelching goddamnable tire-drinking mud. At first, I thought the name Spintires was dumb. I kept wanting to write it “Sprintires”, but that makes even less sense in the context of this game. In this game, I wouldn’t know what to do with myself on a patch of paved road. Spintires is about roads that sometimes aren’t even roads. Oh, wait, I’ve been driving along some sort of wash or gully and someplace where there aren’t any trees for whatever reason. Let’s see, on the map, it looks like this leads to, uh, someplace I haven’t explored, so I have no idea. Let’s see what’s up there.
You learn that the big trucks can often brute force across anything with a head of steam, but the smaller trucks should carefully pick their way around the boggiest bits. You’re reading, intuitively, the interaction of terrain and tires, weight and torque, mostly by the seat of your pants because that’s what a good driving game does: it recreates the sensations you experience when you’re driving in the real world, but at an excitingly dangerous threshold. Whether it’s the speed in Need for Speed: Most Wanted, the traffic in Midnight Club: Los Angeles, or the wet mud in Spintires, it’s something you can relate to, but at a heightened level.
Spintires is an interesting beast, as there’s no story to be told, outside of the product page where you purchase the game. You’re basically just a trucker for hire to transport items in the Russian wilderness somewhere between the years 1980 and 1990. Everything looks the part, from the environment down to the trucks. There’s a distinct lack of technology here, making for a more isolated experience, and insanely quiet. There are goals to achieve, but you’re not pressured to do any of it. If you want to unlock new vehicles to experiment with, completing them is in your best interest.
