  1. Spintires : Mudrunner

    Reviewing video games can be hard work. I’m not just talking about long hours playing games from every genre. Some titles are closer to on the job training than actual games. Spintires : Mudrunners from Focus Home Interactive is a perfect example of this. This is a simulation game like none out there. The main object of the game is to load your truck up with logs and carry them to the lumber mill. The main difference is that you have to travel on logging roads that are sometimes nothing more than mud covered ditches, ford rivers, and you can occasionally even drive on a real road to get the job done. You have a garage full of trucks to get the job done – once they are unlocked – but this game is far from play. This game is divided into two main sections – the campaign and challenges. Challenges are single levels that require you to complete a task with the vehicle the game chooses. The campaign will have you transporting logs from the lumber mill to the saw mill. You will get to pick your truck and route – provided the truck is in that level – but beware. Most levels will require you to make multiple trips, and each truck carries a different amount of cargo. You will also have to factor in fuel stops and of course, the mud. Picking the wrong truck can add extra miles to your job. The controls for the game are very good for a driving simulator. You can pick between an automatic or manual transmission depending on your preference. I will admit the manual takes a bit of getting used to (and I can drive a stick) but it is helpful when trying to get through the mud. Controlling your truck in the mud is where things get hairy, especially when you must try and park something with some precision. As good as the controls are, the view tends to be a bit lacking. You have an over the cab view and you can move the camera, but it tends to be a bit of an odd angle most of the time. The camera doesn’t swivel smoothly, so you can miss the angle you need. And face it, if you are playing a sim game you want a behind the wheel perspective. The game offers one, but you have limited side views and no views of your mirrors. This means that you are forced to switch to the other view when backing up, attaching trailers or attaching your winch. There is a lot to do in Spintires : Mudrunners, but you have to have the patience for long levels, iffy camera views, and lots of mud, this is a title for you. The simulation side is spot on, and even offers multiplayer if you have a few good buddies that want to form a convoy. 7/10
  2. The Escapists 2

    You spend the bulk of your time playing video games doing things that would land you a pretty hefty prison sentence. Speeding, robbing banks, fighting, and of course shooting enough rounds into your foes to kill them a dozen times over. Team 17 and Mouldy Toof Studios have decided to toss you back into the clink for your miscellaneous crimes in The Escapists 2. You may start out in a cell, but like the original Escapists, the goal is to regain your freedom in the shortest time possible. Tunnel, fly, chip through walls, cut through wires, or sneak out any way you can. Each prison – there are 10 total – has multiple escapes including ones that can only be accomplished with an accomplice. That’s right, this time you can bring along a partner in crime. Gameplay is very like the original game. You get tossed in prison and you must find a way out. You can gather supplies from inside the prison and craft them into useful tools for your escape. But, in order to craft items, you will have to spend some time in the library reading to increase your intelligence. If you are going to fight, you had better hit the gym to build your strength and stamina. One upgrade from the original is that in fights you no longer just smack your enemy, you can charge up your strikes to do more damage. A big addition to The Escapists 2 are mobile prisons. These are lock ups that you have a limited amount of time to escape from, and very specific escape routes. There is no routine to follow while transported, so you are free to focus on your escape. The main thing you must watch out for on these prisons is the guards. If they find you out of your cell, they will instantly chase you down and show you who is in charge. Multiplayer adds a whole new dimension to the game as well. You can play local or online co-op games, where you try to work together to escape. One nice feature is that you can have friends drop in and drop out as they want – they don’t have to play through an entire prison with you. The one disadvantage to this is that if you drop out, when you return to the prison you have lost all your hidden items and personal stats. If you are more of a lone wolf, you can play versus mode. In this mode you not only have to be the 1st to escape, but you have to deal with others trying to sabotage you at every step. The wide variety of prisons adds a lot of depth to the game play. You start at a simple prison and before you know it you are in a World War 2 prison camp, stuck on an oil rig, or even somewhere out of this world. The way you escape from one prison will be vastly different from the next. There are nods to some Great Escape movies tucked in as well. The developers wanted to make sure that you didn’t get lonely while you were serving your time, so they added a few YouTube stars into the mix as fellow cellmates. The Escapists 2 is out now on XB1, PS4 and Steam. You can get the digital version on any of the platforms for $19.99. If you are looking for a physical copy, you can grab one of those for a little more. If you are a Nintendo Switch owner, don’t fear – the game is slated to come to your console soon. If you are a fan of the 1st game, scooping up this title is essential. If you have never played the title before, this is a great introduction to the series. 10/10
