    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 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 !

    The Crew is a wonderful and powerful descendant of THE Test Drive Unlimited!

    If you've enjoyed Test Drive, the sceneries, the driving, the cars, the freedom, welcome to The Crew!

    Beware of Evolutions! First, forget the bling-bling and collection of gleaming cars, the aim and your weapon of competition of the game is the tuning and upgrading of your precious, or your few preciouses all along the progression of this Fast and Furious-like racing MORPG!

    And BEWARE!!! Streets, towns, countrysides, mountains, deserts are ALIVE and swarming with animation! Cars, pedestrians, an extremely varied wildlife will brighten up and add spice to your driving experience!

    And this is NOT advertising but the feedback of a passionate of the game and big supporter of the crew behind The Crew, Ivory Tower.

    Well of course, the game is at it's beginning and there is still a lot to do and deploy to polish it's promised splendour. As it is an on-line only game, there are some issues that need to be corrected nevertheless the launch was for now a success compared to the launch of other Ubisoft or other racing games lately.

    AND we have a dev team dedicated to their baby (with not to forget no less than 7 hard years of work developing it hidden in their Ivory Tower) and open minded, listening to the community (they proved it, taking into account the critics and suggestions of the beta testers community) and working day and night to make their dream came truth running day after day.

    Stephane Beley, Director of the Game promised us AT LEAST one year of daily, weekly and monthly adds on, challenges, DLC's (paying and for free), and more if the community asks and follow the game!

    By the way, you'll need to come up to level 20 to begin to handle the true potential of the game and Level 50 (the top level) is only the beginning of the freedom throughout the amazing reproduction of the huge USA territory of The Crew!

    An open world massively multi-player racing game that I hotly recommend !

You can drive around the U.S. in a highly extensive, although I cannot give weather or not it's an accurate presentation since I'm not American. The story mode has a great storyline, but nothing we haven't seen before, but it still leaves you wondering what's coming next. A shortfall is repetition, where the person who gives the mission tells you to simply do one of these 3 things:
    1. Race
    2. "Collect" Crates (which you actually run into with your car)
    3. Ram into another car to take it down
    Another con is that, you start with a car, which you upgrade throughout the game, but most good cars are either outrageously expensive, or require to spend real money. If you get a weak car, you must keep levelling it up and upgrading it to different specs like dirt and street which cost MORE money. Till then, they cannot be used in missions since most of them require an upgraded spec., making it a bit more tedious. Also, once story mode is finished, all you can do is replay missions, do faction PVPs, drive around the U.S. and buy more cars, or quit since there isn't much else to do.
    I have given it a nine since even with it's flaws it's an extremely compelling game

    Lets face it street racers are street scum. This was a free giveaway on PC Uplay. Looks fine, runs fine, sounds fine. Street Arcade racersLets face it street racers are street scum. This was a free giveaway on PC Uplay. Looks fine, runs fine, sounds fine. Street Arcade racers have been done to death. So more of the same really. Kind of reminds me of the old Test Drive series. I do credit the crew with one thing. At least they put people on streets. Nothing weirder than racing around a city that is devoid of total life beyond people in vehicles. This is not the game to bring me back into the arcade racer fold. The always online is BS for this type of game. The Test Drive series did it all on a huge map and offline. Expand

    BIG open world, Patethic storyline. Decents graphics. Forced online play.

    But the 2 things that ruins this game is the car handling with and without upgrades, It feels like you are driving a car in micro machines, and the 2nd thing is pay2win. this early in the game you wonder how another dude with the same car can go 34235 times faster then you and never starts spinning in corner at full speed.

    The answer is pay2win. Ubisoft did the same thing with ACU where you could buy "Helix points." This will be the last Ubisoft game i will ever buy. 5/10

    I had so much high hopes for this game, I even preordered it which I rarely do to any games if that means anything. The game itself is bland,I had so much high hopes for this game, I even preordered it which I rarely do to any games if that means anything. The game itself is bland, the graphics, the characters, the story line, etc. which left me feeling like they just did not try. Races are near impossible to win, if you're doing good, the computer is doing better, if you pay attention it's very clear that they have one really 'good' racer and then the rest absolutely suck. The way every race goes its that the person in first is 1 - 2 miles ahead of you and everyone else is 1 -2 miles behind you. If you come in second, you lose so really in all honesty you're screwed with every race.

    Don't even get me started on the take down missions, the cars are so hard to handle while the computer seems to have the perfect car. it seems like they could take 90 degree turns on a dime and go from 60-120 in 2 second just to get away from you. It's ridiculous, the ONLY way to beat them is to play the same mission 20 times just to find out their pattern and then you can take them down. I don't know about you but that's not fun at all for me.

    I must say, the main reason I bought this game was because I bought the logitech g27 and i honestly did not have that much racing games that i could play with it. I took the leap and bought this heap...of stinking, rotting, and fermenting garbage and i regret my purchase 100%

    On the the pros of which there are very little. A lot of the cars look nice, the fact that they have a somewhat nice looking interior is what really brought my in and the customization is enormous. That is until you find out that getting money and these parts are nearly impossible and you'll end up spending all the blue credit things you get right in the beginning on a new car and now you're left to either spend 20 bucks or waste 20 hours of your life saving up money.

    Just as a side note, this game isn't really for the huge car guys as they make it out to be, you don't really need to know what the parts do, just equip anything that brings up your car rating, how disappointing. equally disappointing is the amount of cars there are that aren't even out. if you wanted to drive your dream car you're probably out of luck, there are a lot of concept cars in this game and any good car will require you grinding for hours to get enough capital. And this may be nitpicky but the voice of the ominous girl that talks to you throughout the game criticizing you will really get on your nerves.
