One of the best "Offroad" games available. It is amazingly low weight in both size and requirements.

I thought this game was hard, and then I played Snowrunner. The two games are arguably quite similar with Snowrunner being much more user-friendly w/much more surface level features and Mudrunner being the more difficult, more simulator-driven game. But the reality is that the maps in Mudrunner are only a fraction of the size of the maps in Snowrunner with the only tasks in Mudrunner being delivering logs, whereas Snowrunner has a massive collection of things that get delivered. For the time that it was released, Mudrunner was an awesome title that built upon the success of the original Spintires game. The reality is that now in 2022, Snowrunner has completely superseded Mudrunner and this game is much less of a good buy. If you can catch it on sale, by all means it is a solid game with decent driving mechanics, bland but passable graphics, and unmemorable sound design. There is plenty of mud to get stuck in and birds to scare away with your horn. If you have the money though, just pick up Snowrunner.

The realism is both refreshing AND frustrating. If you enjoy problem solving and don't mind a slight time dedication, this game is for you! trust me when I say it, when you get stuck, you're STUCK, but with how realistic it feels, once you finally get out you're left with the feeling of "I did that" and very few games these days accomplish that sensation as well as Mud Runner.

MudRunner is probably the most frustrating game I have ever played. It is designed to be that way. In the game you spend a lot of time stuck or struggling to make progress or thwarted in achieving goals, but there is some satisfaction in overcoming these challenges. After the first job where you have to drive an articulated lorry to a parking place through a city, the second job has you driving completely off-road through a boggy, flooded forest to collect logs and deliver them to a lumber mill. What makes this difficult is the fact that apart from the mud, there are lots of obstacles like rocks, trees (obviously) and flooded ravines. The wilderness would be quite relaxing if it weren't for how stressful it is to navigate. I frequently ran out of fuel just short of my destination or rolled a truck in the middle of nowhere, so I spent far more time retrieving abandoned trailers or winching trucks back upright than actually delivering logs. I have to say that it has all been a lot of fun, but totally hectic and annoying at the same time.

Review from Steam

Chugging along at a quarter mile an hour using 5 gallons of fuel per minute, I see a puddle in the road so I decide to run over the forest instead. 10/10 very relaxing

Review from Steam

Very fun! Can be frustrating when you spend 30 minutes moving a load of logs and when you are about to deliver them, you hit a pothole and flip over.

I just want to say that this game genre is not really something I go for on a usual basis. However, I was up in a cabin in the mountains with a few mates for some quality WGG (Whisky, Gaming, Grilling) and one of them insisted we try it out.
Immediately I could feel something changing inside me. Like a good Lagavulin on a rainy autumn night, this game ignited something within us that we never thought was there. Even though the setup of the game is quite straightforward, you unlock garages, take trucks to log kiosks, load them up and bring them to the lumber mill, the execution is where this game really shines.
You have many options how to pick and choose your route, some of them look harmless at first and then slowly you start to doubt yourself and end up regretting all the decisions you made for the past 30 minutes. Having to ask for help and your mates showing up to winch you out of the mud, or water, or ditch, only to realise that their truck doesn´t have what it takes and they end up stuck with you is priceless. So is trying to take a shortcut up a rocky mountain road only to capsize numerous times and have to beg for help.
Since it´s pretty difficult to win every map on your own (doable but more fun as a team) you kinda have to bail out your friends every time, meaning that you learn a very important lesson in life kids: When working in a team you are only as strong as your dumbest driver.
