  • 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.

    Game excells in evey area. Don't understand the bashing this game is copping. Largest and most dense map of any open world deiving game sinceGame excells in evey area. 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

    Amazing! The visuals of this game are stunning! There are a few iffy scenes where cars jump around and glitch but the servers are very fastAmazing! The visuals of this game are stunning! There are a few iffy scenes where cars jump around and glitch but the servers are very fast and the cars look very crisp! I have played the game for about 4 hours on strictly free-roam coop with a friend and we were laughing the whole time. Critics and fans have been bashing the game pretty hard but I highly recommend it if you have a group of friends to play with. This is an instant classic in my heart. Expand

    Best arcade racer since NFS most wanted. I have always thought a game could exist that allowed friends to team up to race as a car club, orBest arcade racer since NFS most wanted. I have always thought a game could exist that allowed friends to team up to race as a car club, or crew. It was something I always wanted to see and finally it happened. The game isn't ultra realistic like the forza or gran turismo series, but it's not supposed to be. It is an arcade racing game that is meant to have very unrealistic scenarios. The story is interesting and cheesy just like most wanted, but this time you have a GIANT map of the US to drive around in. I love this game and haven't found too many down sides yet, but I have only played about 3 hours worth. Expand

This is not a simulated racing game, but an arcade style with rubber-banding and cars that will bounce happily off the guardrails.

    As of right now it takes forever to find a multi-player or coop, and you will only find one if you are lucky, on a prime time, doing a missing that is in the middle of the rankings (most players available.)

    That being said it's a decent game, and for someone that enjoys tuners and wants to get away from FH2 for a while I'd still pick it up.

    Massive potential executed so poorly. Huge problems trying to get the game to even connect to the servers to play, huge amount of needless cutMassive potential executed so poorly. Huge problems trying to get the game to even connect to the servers to play, huge amount of needless cut scenes, loading screens after nearly every interaction and a tired and done to death story line. While an enjoyable game when it plays and I'm sure it will get better I would still advise you wait until it comes down in price and it's heavily patched. A delayed game that still has huge issues is unacceptable. 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
