    An epic racing experience that offers much more content than the original game.

    Despite Ivory Tower sticking their fingers in a lot of pies, every racing discipline is a joy to play.

    The Crew 2 is a whisker away from being a great game. You can spend an entire afternoon just enjoying the cars and driving without a specific purpose, while taking in some of the marvelous views, and it feels really good. However, the major downsides - ubiquitous copy-pasting and a rather scant number of genuine innovations - don't allow me to recommend this game to absolutely everyone; not just yet.

    The Crew 2, the open-world racing game offers too many options and often fails to finish its innovative ideas. Still, it is a fantastic game where players with a little patience can have fun for a long time.
  5. The Crew 2 is one of the most ambitious racing game we have ever seen. With gorgeous views and different kind of vehicles, it strikes you really fast. But problems with car physics and lack of PvP, it feels like an unfinished product.

    Despite all the cool features that are touted, it the end is just a soulless racing game that doesn’t excel at anything but also doesn’t really fail in any significant way.

    What a delight to re-appreciate The Crew all over again! The first one. Not this underdeveloped and terribly misguided sequel.

    VERY grindy game. Probably the most grindy game I can remember playing of late. You have to grind to buy cars, then you have to grind toVERY grindy game. Probably the most grindy game I can remember playing of late. You have to grind to buy cars, then you have to grind to level the cars up. Getting the first car for a discipline leveled up to the maximum takes something like twenty hours. Then, to grind out the "set" that you want takes another 20-40+. I cannot even guess how long it might take to get a desirable set where all the item affixes are desirable, but I haven't met anyone that has managed such a feat. It's ridiculous.

    The netcode is DRAMATICALLY better than the previous game and among the best I remember seeing in an online game, but the playing experience is largely solitary. There are a dozen or so races across a dozen or so disciplines, but good luck finding people you enjoy playing with. There aren't, presently, any facilities for matchmaking or even global chat channels or anything.

    On the up-side, the game is gorgeous. The number of licensed automobiles is very large, including a pretty fantastic selection of popular motorcycles. If the idea of zooming around on a decked out H2 or S1000RR or even a Street Glide sounds appealing, The Crew 2 is the best option I have found short of doing it in real life.

    What a horrendous waste of money. There seemed to be almost no effort put into it, no matter how hard I tried looking. It’s almost exactly theWhat a horrendous waste of money. There seemed to be almost no effort put into it, no matter how hard I tried looking. It’s almost exactly the same map recycled from 4 years ago, but with worse lighting and detail. There are cool locations, but you are encouraged to never see them and just fast travel, probably to hide the graphical downgrade.
    The game advertises the multiple methods of transit, but boats are mildly entertaining at best and the plane races are something I wouldn’t do if I were paid. The car racing is pretty good, except the horrendous rubber banding, which means no matter how well you race, one crash could cost you the entire race.
    The economy means you can barely afford new cars, and makes no sense, with worse cars being only marginally cheaper than better ones.
    The 2 points are for the cars which are modelled pretty well

    I played the crew a lot regularly for 3 years from time to time I would sit with my squad make a checkpoint and talk about stuff but after weI played the crew a lot regularly for 3 years from time to time I would sit with my squad make a checkpoint and talk about stuff but after we played beta we decided not to buy the game cause we didn't feel it and now after playing the free weekend I am really glad we didn't buy it The whole idea of switching between ground, water and air is not for me. They made the interface way more complicated and it stopped being fun to play it using wheel cause it's hard to fly with a wheel. Also, the camera is pathetic I spent 10 minutes getting angry about it rotating all the time and I spent 20 trying to find a solution to it but I couldn't find an option to change it.
    I do not recommend this game although I hope there will be The Crew 3 that will fix the chaos they made in this game.

    They literally changed the lighting in the crew 1 and removed everything good from it and released the game as the crew 2
