    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.

    The only thing that makes me angry is music (its so cheap and poor , thats why im using spotify while driving) also voice acting is so cringy and cheap that makes you skip all cutscenes.

    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.

    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

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