    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.

I used to play the open beta and it was "nah, alright" back then, but now, man. I really recommend getting this one. It's as arcade as it could be, but that's the very point, to be absurd, mad and extremely fun! 9/10 cause they could have made the controls better, but other than that (after a while spent in controller options menu) I love it so much!

    So, this game is very similar to Forza Horizon 3, both in terms of gameplay and the look and feel of menus etc. Is this a good thing? WithSo, this game is very similar to Forza Horizon 3, both in terms of gameplay and the look and feel of menus etc. Is this a good thing? With Forza Horizon 3 being my favorite arcade racer of all time, yes, very much so. So compared to Forza, here are the pros and cons.

    Pros:

    * The world is much bigger here, meaning more stuff to do and I found this game having more unique races than Forza Horizon 3.
    * Next to cars, you also have bikes, boats and planes to offer greater variety.
    * All the menus are really clean and slick just like in Forza.

    Cons:

    * The cars look great but environmental graphics looks worse than Forza.
    * Physics are a bit too much Mario Kart style and I definitely prefer the Forza physics.
    * The AI is cheating with rubberbanding and it's super obvious.
    * Getting new vehicles takes forever since you get so little money from each race.

    In summary, if you liked Forza Horizon 3, you will enjoy this as well. However I can see Forza Horizon 4 being more high quality than The Crew 2, but this will be a good racer to play until it's October release.

    I see no need to write a long text analyzing an art, the note is just a piece of advice to know how much it is worth in your life.

    I played the first Crew and remember that I was stuck on that game, I'm not a big car guy but I appreciate a game with a good story and a funI played the first Crew and remember that I was stuck on that game, I'm not a big car guy but I appreciate a game with a good story and a fun driving element, even when the story was over I kept playing the game because of how purely fun it was to drive. I was excited to buy crew 2, expecting it to be even better than the first but was horribly let down. In the crew one, you play as an ex-criminal, recruited by the police to go undercover and destroy the illegal racing industry from the inside. Maybe doesn't sound like the most fun story but it blew me away. When I then bought the crew 2 on its release date I was met with a horribly plain "story" that pretty much consisted of endless grinding for followers on some social media that is never explained. Not only did it completely abandon the already good storyline, which by the way had the potential for a follow-up, with the storyline of some fame-hungry douche. The driving mechanic was the same as the last one, the graphics even got a little bit worse in my eyes. The addition of boats, planes other sorts of vehicles felt like a sloppy unwanted excuse for an "upgrade". The game was so optimised for a console that a mouse was practically useless and often irritating to use due to the constant centering of the view.
    Even in the settings you see elements of "console optimization" where you can only set the fps limiter to two options, 30 and 60, you cant turn it off, neither can you set it higher. It was almost like Ubisoft was trying to punish PC players by putting the keys for different actions all over the different corners of the keyboard. I also found it unproportionally hard at some missions, I may be just bad at drifting but gathering 20 000 points for a "normal" difficulty felt almost impossible. After what felt like an eternity (actually a couple of hours) I stopped playing thinking it was just full of bugs and was gonna get fixed soon. Fast forward 3 years, I see it in my library and get excited to play it, I download it, start it, and quickly realize that nothing has changed. Still the same let down that I bought 3 years ago.
    I used to be a dedicated assassins creed and Ubisoft fan, but this is just depressing.

    TLDR
    + Fun driving (same as last game)
    + 5 GB smaller than TC 1

    - Let down of a story
    - Addition of other types of vehicles was poorly executed
    - little bit worse graphics (at least that I saw)
    - A LOT of grinding
    - Worthless optimization for PC
    - Never get to know a character
    - Unproportionally hard for some mission (may be just me that sucks at drifting)
    - UI is horrible
    - UX is even worse

    Reasons why you shouldn't buy this game:
    -There is a game named "Forza Horizon 4" and they cost same.
    -This game actually doesn't have a storyline. Some cinematics appears aftter races that tries to keep you playing it.
    -The worst graphics that I've seen in a 2018 AAA game. PC graphics = console graphics for this game. You can even compare with any AAA racing game released after 2015. Especially textures and lightning have downgraded. Try to make a trip at mountains, if your eyes don't bleed that may mean you need glasses to see better. The Crew Wild Run has better graphics.
    -AI is OP. They basically don't crash unless you hit them. They can pass the curves at 180km/h while you crash at 100.
    -You have to replay same races all the time because there isn't a storyline and online is dead.
    -Boats and planes aren't that enjoyable. You may be impressed by trailer but trust me, they aren't enjoyable.
    I played 150 hours the first game and played this for ~30 hours and I don't think I'll play anymore. The only improvements are sounds and pyhsics.

    Waste of money.

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