Spintires – The Verdict

Spintires – The Verdict

Nick first talked about Spintires back last September when he played the tech demo. The full game was finally released recently, and I’ve been spending a lot of time exploring the maps with the World Cup in the background in the past couple of weeks. The only trouble with that…it drowns out some of the awesome sounding trucks that are in this off-road, mud simulator. Despite the footballing distraction, I’ve decided on my Verdict, read on…

Scania Truck Simulator – The Verdict

Scania Truck Simulator – The Verdict

I was bitterly disappointed by last years Trucks and Trailers, a title which I felt damaged the growing reputation that was being enjoyed by SCS Software’s Truck Simulator series of games. Fortunately, the precursor to European Truck Simulator 2, Scania Truck Simulator, is a much more enjoyable experience. Hit the jump to read the review.

As you might guess by the name this title features a heavy influence from truck manufacturer Scania. This is felt most keenly with the presence of only one cab to drive in, a Scania truck. But SCS have done a really good job modelling the cab, both on the inside and out, this is all thanks to the new engine they are using which was developed for ETS2. The new engine is shown off best in the Dangerous Drives mode which features a variety of extremely challenging missions where you must drive your truck, sometimes with cargo, from point to point in the quickest time while avoiding hitting any obstacles. The first mission takes place on a route with a passing resemblance to the Road of Death. Things only get more challenging from there, while one mission really shows off what the new game engine is capable of by making you drive through a flooded town with rain lashing down. It is quite a sight and shows how far the series has come.

Scania Truck Driving Simulator Announced

Scania Truck Driving Simulator Announced



As you might know, I am a bit of a fan of the upcoming European Truck Simulator 2 from SCS Software, but while we are patiently waiting for that we have the prospect of Scania Truck Driving Simulator coming out in May.

It is a title which promises to be deeper than last years disappointing Trucks and Trailers. This release will feature a basic driving school series of tasks, a map for free driving and a variety of scenarios to work through. The most exciting bit though must be the segment based on Scania’s Young European Truck Driver Competition (watch them in action here) which promises to be a very, very challenging sequence of events. You can find more details on the SCS Soft blog. Am I the only one who is interested in these games?
