  • Summary: Take part in a wild ride to infiltrate and overtake the 510s, a gang that has grown up around Detroit's illegal street racing scene. You will need to grow your rep in the underground racing scene and sabotage their activities city-by-city throughout a fully-open world United States. ManeuverTake part in a wild ride to infiltrate and overtake the 510s, a gang that has grown up around Detroit's illegal street racing scene. You will need to grow your rep in the underground racing scene and sabotage their activities city-by-city throughout a fully-open world United States. Maneuver through the percolating streets of New York City and Los Angeles, cruise down balmy Miami Beach, or trek through the breathtaking plateaus of Monument Valley. Each locale comes with its own set of surprises and driving challenges to master. On your journey you will encounter other drivers on the road - all potentially worthy companions to crew up with, or future rivals to compete against. Expand

    Even if not lacking defects, The Crew shines in many aspects managing to deliver and entertaining arcade racing experience and tons of content.

    It's a game that requires and occasionally enforces patience, but like all great road trips it's about the journey, not the destination.

    Solid story-based arcade racer with huge open world. The online mode is conceptually interesting, but in the end in this form it is a half-baked addendum.

    The Crew is an open world racing game that impresses with its size and enchants with its good ideas. Too bad this pleasant experience, packed with challenges of all kinds, is marred by poor driving sensations, AI problems and disappointing graphics.

    It pains me to say it seeing as I had such high hopes but The Crew missed its mark by a long shot and just barely chugs over the starting line.

    A lot of The Crew seems hardly thought-out, almost chaotic but there is still a lot of good hidden underneath these problems.

    From the absurd handling and cheap enemy A.I. to the ugly graphics and over-reliance on microtransactions, there are no shortage of problems here. Even if you are desperate for a new racer (I’m looking at you PS4 owners), I can’t justify recommending this game in its current state.

The carThe Crew is a massive game, filled with awesome exciting missions and races. I can't even explain all that you can do in this game. The car customization is fun and there is many features. The driving experience if smooth and so fun. Last but not least the Co-op is awesome, being able to race, and drive around with your friends. Great game! Expand

The game is loads of fun and reminds me a lot on the old NFS games likeHonestly: Don't believe the haters and their negative reviews. The game is loads of fun and reminds me a lot on the old NFS games like Underground and Most Wanted. The map is incredibly huge and the races are rich in variation. Online Coop and PVP add to the experience but it simply doesn't get boring due to the inclusion of customization and different race types like Offroad and Dirt races. Even the story is kind of decent for a racing game! Highly recommend it! Watch the game on Twitch, people there love it as well. I highly doubt most people here bashing the game did even play it.

    Game excells in evey area. Don't understand the bashing this game is copping. Largest and most dense map of any open world deiving game sinceGame excells in evey area. Don't understand the bashing this game is copping. Largest and most dense map of any open world deiving game since Fuel. My only complaint is that it is always online and it should be playable offline. It's not really an MMO, it's more a massive open world driving game with online elements. Shame when the servers are one day switched off you wont even be able to explore the map when it didn't need ro be this way. Expand

    The graphics are good, you get to see hundreds of American Landmarks, scenery from New York to Las Vegas to San Francisco.

    Considering its called 'The Crew', I thought there would be more things to do with other online players. Yeah driving around is fun, but it does get a bit boring quite quickly.

    Customising your vehicles is very cool though. You can literally customise everything, even the wind mirrors...I know right? You can customise the paint, bumpers, windows, tyres, rims, engine, braking, suspension, etc etc etc etc etc.

    The story line isn't thrilling. You just race. I know its a racing game and thats main point of the game but it obviously gets extremely repetitive and boring.

    Overall I rate this game a good 7 because its not perfect, but its alright if you're into your cars and racing.

Cop cars are immovable objects which makes for some very annoying evasion missions, while your vehicle and almost everything else trip over the slightest bump at times. Although to try and scale the entire lower 48 for an open world game would be quite the feat, a little more realistic layout would have been greatly appreciated. The graphics aren't the best, but they aren't the worst either. The vehicle rating system for missions can be annoyance, especially once you unlock more than one class and need to swap between them for different story missions and find out your vehicle is off par by 100 points or so. The biggest annoyances come in the form of somewhat poor design, such as the alerts for mission completion or part unlocks covering the entire screen as you continue to coast into traffic or skill challenges starting because you can't avoid driving through them from point a to b. Because the game is drop-in multiplayer, if the servers are down you can't do anything with it but wait. It is a decent game, but it needed a little more polish. Expand

    Simply awful, I got this game as a free download from xbox live and found it to be a complete waste of time.
    As others have pointed out, the handling is beyond bad and the entire game comes across as a low budget, $10 game. The kind of crap you find at big lots or some other shovelware outlet. Sucks
