    The Crew does a lot of things right. Not only does it give you a huge game world to explore, but the ability to change up the whole experience by tuning your car differently is an excellent addition to Ivory Tower’s ambitious racer, allowing you to take one car and do so much more than just a mere race. Apart from the microtransactions you cannot go wrong here by jumping behind the dashboard of your favourite car and taking off into the sunset across the desert.

    For all its structural successes, The Crew is also slightly bland and lacks of a deep control scheme or mission variety.

    The Crew on the PS4 is a highly ambitious game that succeeds on some levels and fails on others that results in a standard racer.

    Technical issues and shallow multiplayer waste the fascinating open world racer created by Ivory Tower.

    It may have the prospects to become a great MMO racer, but at the moment The Crew is not able to deliver ever a fragment of what Reflections promised it would offer with this racer.

    The Crew offers lots of unique road trips in a gigantic world full of content. But unfortunately we could not overcome the technical issues, sloppy graphics, bad driving behavior and other flaws this game has. It is awful to see all that potential go to waste like this.

    Such is the slow death of The Crew, a foundation of a serviceable racer, weighted down with the worst tendencies of AAA "added value" game design. There's a good game buried alive inside it, and when they finally plant the headstone, the cause of death will be chiseled as "trying too hard."

It was an impulse buy of heavily discounted game. I read few reviews of the game before. Most of them giving around 6/10. I like racing genre, that's why I decided to take a risk. After about week with the game I have to disagree with almost all reviews I read. First the map, huge map, and a lot to do. Story is ok, maybe not very original, but lets be honest this is a racing game. Graphics is decent, and I would risk to say very good for a sandbox racer. Car handling also very good, especially on pro settings. Tuning options massive. The game is at least very good, strong 8. I'm giving The Crew 9/10 with additional point for exceptionally big and with great variety of scenery. If you like arcade racers, its a must buy. Peace :) Expand

    I'm not sure what I was expecting from this game but once i had played it i was pleased and disappointed in equal measures. Whilst the map isI'm not sure what I was expecting from this game but once i had played it i was pleased and disappointed in equal measures. Whilst the map is vast and rather beautiful there are just too many repetitive skills to do, the story is nothing short of a joke and I've lost count of the amount of times if tried to join my friends in a "crew" and failed meaning i finished the story mode just by doing solo jobs. Some of the cut scenes are very well presented and look amazing whilst others look like they are from an early release of a PS3 game.

    Overall this is an enjoyable game but the mixture of quality in visuals and game play will annoy you no end. I will change my review rating once Ubisoft/Ivory Tower patch the game.

    The Crew as of now is decent at best.

    Positives: The world is enormous! You truly do feel like you are going cross-country the ought the game, even through long interstates in between cities. There are tons of different race types and and challenges. If you can get over the negatives you'll have no problem having a good time upgrading yourself and you're cars. The handling is pretty good, and remember, it is an arcade racer. And the graphics are above-average... Since it is so huge, some details are left to be desired, but pretty good overall in my opinion.

    Negatives: Where do I start?!?!?! There are too many problems connecting to racers (or even finding people who want to join co-op missions). It took too long to receive my pre-ordered cars (so long that they don't matter now) and still have not received my Crew Credits. The micro-transactions take you out of the equation as you are too far behind the competition. And the levels of the cars feel worthless, as I lost a co-op race with a level 48, 2015 Ford Mustang GT against all less and level 20 starter cars.

    I am just incredibly disappointed in this game, and it just doesn't feel worth already. I'm trading in today while I can still get decent money back. Advice save your time and money, and just get Far Cry 4... It is the only game Ubisoft has made that is any good.
