  • Summary: Take part in a wild ride to infiltrate and overtake the 510s, a gang that has grown up around Detroit's illegal street racing scene. You will need to grow your rep in the underground racing scene and sabotage their activities city-by-city throughout a fully-open world United States. ManeuverTake part in a wild ride to infiltrate and overtake the 510s, a gang that has grown up around Detroit's illegal street racing scene. You will need to grow your rep in the underground racing scene and sabotage their activities city-by-city throughout a fully-open world United States. Maneuver through the percolating streets of New York City and Los Angeles, cruise down balmy Miami Beach, or trek through the breathtaking plateaus of Monument Valley. Each locale comes with its own set of surprises and driving challenges to master. On your journey you will encounter other drivers on the road - all potentially worthy companions to crew up with, or future rivals to compete against. Expand

    Even if not lacking defects, The Crew shines in many aspects managing to deliver and entertaining arcade racing experience and tons of content.

    It's a game that requires and occasionally enforces patience, but like all great road trips it's about the journey, not the destination.

    Solid story-based arcade racer with huge open world. The online mode is conceptually interesting, but in the end in this form it is a half-baked addendum.

    The Crew is an open world racing game that impresses with its size and enchants with its good ideas. Too bad this pleasant experience, packed with challenges of all kinds, is marred by poor driving sensations, AI problems and disappointing graphics.

    It pains me to say it seeing as I had such high hopes but The Crew missed its mark by a long shot and just barely chugs over the starting line.

    A lot of The Crew seems hardly thought-out, almost chaotic but there is still a lot of good hidden underneath these problems.

    From the absurd handling and cheap enemy A.I. to the ugly graphics and over-reliance on microtransactions, there are no shortage of problems here. Even if you are desperate for a new racer (I’m looking at you PS4 owners), I can’t justify recommending this game in its current state.

Don't understand the bashing this game is copping. Largest and most dense map of any open world deiving game since Fuel. My only complaint is that it is always online and it should be playable offline. It's not really an MMO, it's more a massive open world driving game with online elements. Shame when the servers are one day switched off you wont even be able to explore the map when it didn't need ro be this way. Expand

    That was at the end of 2015. Move forward to August 2015 and I am playing a game that has honestly been honed to greatness. The handling is enjoyable, the world map is insane, the mmo-ish elements are...fun? Yes! I hate traditional mmo grinds, but this game does not feel like a grind. After every race you win an upgrade to your car's stats. After every, jump, speed, precision, slalom challenge, you win upgrades depending on whether you bronze medal it (eg. +5 grip) or get the gold (then increased to +6 instead). It is really satisfying to play. Difficult at times, but you try again because you know you can do it.

    The story I feel improves as you get further in. You kind of do feel like an undercover street racer, though I know that sounds cliché. It somehow works. Upgrading your car is just brilliant. You have more than enough cosmetic customisation to really make your car your own. I can't emphasise enough how huge and varied the map is; and filled with things to do!

    I loved Forza Horizon 2, but this game...is fantastic. I am giving it a ten, as in November the Crew gets a free patch that absolutely overhauls the graphics and erases most peoples biggest problem with the game.

    Oh, and motorbikes and monstertrucks dlc. MONSTERTRUCKS!

    If you enjoy racing games, you will be enthralled. Get this underrated game.

Its so difficult to get into but once you understand it BOOM!. you get locked into the mmo elements. The map is huuuugeeee and encountering different players is common as you drive . The graphics are lowered but for me being oldskool if it plays better im all for it and it does. The little kids will be moaning about the graphics so they will just go back to thinking call of doody is great (rolls eyes). a negative point is there is no tutorial i was so confused about it trying to understand it. i love being able to do nearly every mission co op and its replay factor is huge. I f you like mmos try this its a never ending mmo game with cars its great. this is TESTDRIVE on xbone. Expand

I expected a lot more to be honest. The map is GIGANTIC but the visuals in gameplay have really, REALLY suffered although cut scene graphics are amazing! Handling is awful but I am led to believe it will improve once fully upgraded but i doubt it will make much difference at all. I had to buy this game as I am a massive fan of racing games but I'm left a little disappointed. The new consoles can achieve a lot more than this. Expand

A lot of the time you have to drive to the places yourself, which takes a very long time. I found myself falling asleep at points while playing it, and I wasn't tired either. Many of the missions are rage inducing, and for the whole game, you're just driving around to other places and completing the, basically, same missions. The one thing this game has going is the story, I think it's pretty good, and that they put a lot of time into it. Overall, the game itself is not very fun, but if you beat the game, it'll feel very rewarding. Expand

    Simply awful, I got this game as a free download from xbox live and found it to be a complete waste of time.
    As others have pointed out, the handling is beyond bad and the entire game comes across as a low budget, $10 game. The kind of crap you find at big lots or some other shovelware outlet. Sucks
