What experts liked

The handling and environment physics are robust enough to connect you well with the terrain that is your constant foe, which is hugely important.

From a technical perspective, Spintires is surprisingly robust. Boasting a super smooth framerate and some fairly detailed environments, it’s clear that it’s in the mud-modelling where Saber Interactive have wrought their best work – as the mud deforms, churns and changes shape as all manner of mammoth vehicles tear their way through it.

The water effects are incredible too, as it sprays and pours from your wheels as you fight your way through deep puddles and over shallow areas of rivers and swamplands.

Still, there’s no denying that Spintires: MudRunner – American Wilds is a unique experience that’s strangely entertaining despite often feeling like hard work. It’s hardcore, perhaps to a fault, but that’s what makes it so interesting. And if you have some like-minded friends, you can also play the game in co-op with them online.

The atmosphere in Spintire mudrunner is amazing and makes you feel like you are truly in desolate environment and the American Wilds edition ups the ante even more.

In addition to multiplayer, there are two main single modes to ‘Spintires: MudRunner American Wilds,’ that being ‘Campaign’ and ‘Challenges.’

I would have thought American Wilds would have introduced new objectives to complete in its maps, but it’s still the same thing: collect logs and deliver them to a far away location on the map. The challenge mode at least sees improvements to it’s incredibly harsh tasks.

What experts didn't like

Things look good enough at times, but suddenly movement will hang for a split second, or a piece of shrubbery will become stuck in a passing vehicle, and pass through bodywork in all kinds of impossible ways.

Slow, occasionally frustrating but always satisfying in the long-term, if you want to try a PS4 driving title that does things very differently, then Spintires: MudRunner American Wilds is your huckleberry.

This may sound stressful and I suppose it can be, but the lack of time limits really does allow you to just take your time and enjoy the driving.

Spintires: MudRunner – American Wilds‘ biggest fault is that navigating each of the game’s maps can be a real pain.

Also – and while it plays quite well – Spintires: MudRunner American Wilds is pretty barebones in presentation. Even branded vehicles won’t wow anyone, with the same said for terrain. Similarly, maps and HUD are dry and sometimes confusing.

As an expansion only, American Wilds fails to impress. As a complete package, this is a better value add to get base game and all DLC included, but it’s still a simulation that’s frustrating to deal with.

As for the gameplay, its hard to tell if I’m just a really horrible driver or the controls are bad or possibly its both. I had a really hard time controlling the trucks in this game.
