    Taking the good and weighing it against the few negatives or things I would've changed or added, The Crew carves a name for itself amongst the ranks of long standing racing series with one quick motion.

    The size of the world is stunning and it's a good racing game, but the controls and the little bit disappointing multiplayer mode are the reasons it's not a great game.

    Rating The Crew is problematic, because you can look at this game from two perspectives. In view of some simplifications and scripted moments it will not delight those in search of pure racing. Those who appreciate large open worlds however will be overjoyed. [01/2015, p.70]

    The Crew is a big sandbox with very good ideas, but it's a game wrapped up in issues. The driving is uncomfortable and the physics deceive your cars.

    The Crew is not without issues, but still offers a lot of fun: the pleasant driving model and huge world encourage exploration. It's during the free roaming that the game spreads its wings and offers real breadth.

    One of the most exciting racing game environments for years, unfortunately bound to a slew of dull races and superfluous story.

    It’s a fun distraction for the short term but unless this is the kind of meal you’d like to eat three times a day for the next twenty five years, you are going to find yourself not quite sated by what The Crew has to offer.

    Epic. It's NFS Underground 2 on Steroids ! And MORE. Beautiful on PC.
    Solid effort from Ivory tower, a lot of time has gone into the cars
    Epic. It's NFS Underground 2 on Steroids ! And MORE. Beautiful on PC.
    Solid effort from Ivory tower, a lot of time has gone into the cars themselves. and adding or changing a part can really make all the difference in the world, the map is gigantic I mean really big, driving from city to city you can get the sense that every thing feels different depending where you are, Physics done right, Handling done Right, customization done Right, End Game Content done Right, Take My Money !

    Since I'm old fart i remember the golden era of arcade machines. One of best game for me from that time was game outrun. And than i launched this and bam, its new outrun for me :). Story is meh, handling is ARCADE style, so if you expected simulation look elsewhere. But if you loved outrun for example, you'll love this too. Graphic is not top notch, but is very beautiful, and it really goes easy on graphic card so much kudos here. Sound, yeah, it could be better, but its not gamebreakingly bad. Best asset is hugeness of the map, never saw a game with this much content. You can just cruise around looking at scenery for hours and not get bored. Diversity of cars is not great, but is good since many cars can be fixed to several specs, and they look pretty different with different specs. Progression is also kinda arcade style, most of your car power comes from upgrades, not the cars itself, and you collect those by racing (i look at that like item drops in wow). All in all, hours of fun for me
    So, i get it that this game is not for everyone. If you're old enough to remember outrun you will love this. If you love NFS, chances are that you will love this too. If you love simulation, well, this is not for you sorry. I would give this game 8-8.5 but since it really don't deserve this low mark, I will give it 9.

Every mission in the game is nearlyI REALLY REALLY REALLY wanted to give this game a higher score but after playing it... I just can't haha! Every mission in the game is nearly impossible or hard as hell to get gold on. Call me whatever you want but every race or event infuriates me sooooo much in this game. I've played Midnight Club before and THAT gets annoying but this game... It just pisses me off.

    Although the map is huge in this game it is so BORING! There is absolutely nothing to look at besides VERY flat hills and the obviously copied and pasted trees/foliage along the way. The maps need to look more natural and have a lot more trees and bushes.

    The mechanics and physics in this game are pretty bad. Hitting cars or trees often times just bounces you off of them like a bumper car. Objects you collide with don't leave appropriate dents, marks, scratches, etc. I really regret purchasing this game and UNFORTUNATELY once it's registered you can't return it as far as I know.

    AI is also bad. Vehicles don't turn smoothly, they jerk around corners. This is the 21st century. Ubisoft acts as if this is their first line of games released. I'm glad to know that they are doing everything right now to fix these games BUT they REALLY needed to push these projects back further.

    In my opinion, I would wait to purchase this game until it is patched a little.

    I knew this game would be average the moment Ubi announced they would withhold all reviews until release day. It plays like a glorified NFSI knew this game would be average the moment Ubi announced they would withhold all reviews until release day. It plays like a glorified NFS underground. The vehicles handle like Watch_Dogs, the damage engine isn't that great, and the graphics don't look next gen. Story and voice actors are a bit cliche if not douchey. Expand
