    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."

    I'm kinda late (just a little :D), but I wanted to give out my thoughts on the game.

    The story is pretty cliche, but it doesn't mean that it's bad (or it may be just me because I like revenge stories). The selection of cars is really nice, but it misses some top JDM cars, for ex. 180/200/240sx, R32 GT-R, 350z (but it has a 370z as a replacment), Silvia, etc. The classes are interesting and cool. You can even buy a Porsche (or as it is on The Crew - RUF) and make it an Off-Road beast. The map is probably the best thing about the game - it's a not much scaled down map of the whole damn USA. The off-road driving is so fun! The graphics were kinda outdated, but after the Wildrun update, they became pretty nice (atleast for me). Even now I enjoy just driving around in off-road cars with my friends.

    The main problem with this game is the fact that they try and squeeze in a ridiculous storyline (I thought i was buying a street racing game,The main problem with this game is the fact that they try and squeeze in a ridiculous storyline (I thought i was buying a street racing game, but it ends up it is full of missions of a sons of anarchy-esque car gang.) The map is bland, or those who played Fuel, you will understand just because they make a giant map, doesnt make the map good. The cars also do not handle great, again I would compare this to Fuel. "But the it's supposed to feel arcade-like", this comment i would agree with, but however the cars seem boat-like and unresponsive, although its not bad to a level where the game becomes unplayable. The game though does have some redeeming features, The upgrade system for example, when completing certain missions you can unlock a part for your car, and you can automatically fit this to your vehicle without the need of visiting a garage. The fast travel option can also be a life saver, or at least a time saver. I would recommend this game to anyone looking for a racing game on the ps4, but only as there are not many great ones out there at the moment, it might be money better spent buying GTA however, if you are looking for a purely multiplayer racing game, although the cars might not be liscenced, they handle better and the map design is a lot greater.

    The Crew could have been one of the best racing games released for the PC so far. The idea of a vast environment, a feature-loaded tuningThe Crew could have been one of the best racing games released for the PC so far. The idea of a vast environment, a feature-loaded tuning system as well as a motivating career due to a player-level and exp system combined with storytelling, was really tempting for me. Unfortunately, the performance is lousy, while the game looks aged - more like a DirectX 8 game, rather than anything even remotely modern. A lot of optimization, that would have been necessary, simply didn't happen. While the lack of detail is just a pity, the flickering edges - even with every possible AA mode - start to hurt my eyes after playing for an hour.
    Conculsion: good plan, bad execution! I really really hope for big preformance patches (as my PC isn't slow at all - at least as for any other recently released open-world game).
