Rated 6 out of 10
by FiveUnderSeven Meh.
After hearing of several famous YouTubers beginning to play The Crew, and saying they enjoyed it very much, I thought I might as well pick this game up for myself. After playing for a few hours and progressing through the campaign and a few online races, I can finally conclude what I feel about the game: Meh. First off, the sound was Triple A caliber, the sounds the cars made were super realistic, maybe even too realistic in some cases. I really thought at times I was in a real car driving down a backroad at 110 mph, but I won't get into much detail. Second, the graphics are OUTDATED. It truly felt as if I was playing NFS: Hot Pursuit, with a few next-gen tweaks. I feel as if Ubisoft could have spent more time perfecting the graphics, but on last-gen consoles, it should look fine. Finally, the car selection is great, maybe add a few more in the next update, and the map is by far the best feature of this game. Such a huge landscape to cover, it really makes me want to play more.

i had my reservations before playing the Crew but those reservations soon disappeared after about 15 minutes into the game. Very fun and challenging.
Rated 10 out of 10 by zephyrhelix121 now that the storm died down
well off rip for 60 bucks and a lot of crashes this game was not on my list BUT now that all the elite players have come and gone and the price dropped to around 30 bucks I picked it up and I would have to say other then the weak story line (about 8 hours of gameplay) the game itself is not bad this is coming from a die hard forza fan but be warned this is not a full sim game is has an arcade feel but overall I would say at least give it a try from one car guy to the next if your a guy who loves custom rides or someone who needs a break from forza for 30 bucks you cant beat it even with the dlc coming around the corner
Rated 8 out of 10 by littlesquirt Good game, but could be better
This game is a fantastic game. What you need to realize though is the game does not live up to what the trailer for the game delivers, that said, it does not mean that you shouldn't get it. The story line is good, but very slow, menus are very confusing, the cars would be better, but you really can only progress through the game in one car because you will need to use your money you earn for that car. (Don't expect it to be like NFS where every hour you get a new car) On top of this, for a next gen console I would expect the game to have much better graphics than what it delivers. On the good side, the content of the game is more than enough, maybe even too much. The map is ridiculous in size and has many different climate areas with real world places in the U.S. However, don't expect to be flying from one side of the map to the other, it takes time and can get slow and old to driving to these different locations. (You can jump right to a specific destination only if you've have driven their before, if not, and you set waypoint to L.A. and you're in N.Y. expect to be driving about an hour or so to get to your final destination. However it is still a fun arcade racing game, however, I think NFS delivers a better arcade style game. (Hopefully the new NFS that is coming out in November will be good!)
Rated 3 out of 10 by Repercusion Customization and looks is all this game has.
As far as vehicle customization and audio/visual performance, this game is good. However, as a racing game, the most important part is the ability to actually race. The vehicles do not handle well, and many of them rebound hard in the opposite direction after you stop turning. This makes avoiding traffic while trying to stay in first almost impossible. The upgrade system is decent until the end game, where it is excessively expensive or difficult depending on the method you take. You can buy them or do the skill challenges, as when you are leveling, but when you complete a challenge there is an apparent 80% chance of getting lvl 40-45 parts, and 20% of getting anything higher than that. This makes the game not only more difficult than any racing game I have ever played, but also the most repetitive. NFS has gone downhill since Pro Street, but I would say the newer games still handle significantly better than this one. If you want an open world racing game, pick Forza Horizon 1 or 2 instead. One more note, Raid vehicles are the most pointless spec in the game for the endgame. Offroad is better in all aspects aside from sheer durability.
Rated 6 out of 10 by FordBoy67 First in Dead last
So this game had sooo much potential . the graphics where decent the idea was awesome but it fell short in my opinion. its got hours upon hours of things to do and cars to unlock but the credit system here feels broken and some races feel clunky. the music was good for the first few days but gets to be like gta 5 where you heard the same song 70 times In one mission . the open world was amazing and the cop chases where awesome but it gets repetitive. the story was very dry to.
but if your into raceing then this is your type of game.
im giving this game a 6 because it didn't make the replay appeal for me . an I would rather pay for car upgrades then do small challenges .
Rated 1 out of 10 by clgcsi Next gen?
I went into this game knowing it was going to be arcade to the extreme, but i am sorry to say it was much worse then i ever thought would be possible. The first thing that blew my mind was the fact that the mirrors do not work in the cars. You can tell they are suppose to work because the shading changes on them but they are just gray dismal spaces. Secondly after realizing that in manual mode you have to shift with the right stick, i went to remap the controller. Only to find that the feature is no where to be found, um ok? The icing on the cake for me in the fact that this game is always online, you can connect with friends at any time. Nope, constant lag, constant glitching. If you want an open world game for driving dont waste your time with this. Horizon 2 may have a small map, but the selection of cars and detail of the game far make up for it. Ubisoft needs to get their act together.
Rated 8 out of 10 by johndoe30 good racing game

Rated 9 out of 10 by TNballer Great Game
I love this game! I just bought the game after it has been out for almost six months. They have fixed the glitch problems that plagued the game at launch. The shear mass of the game to explore is amazing. Literally would take 80 hours to set your tires on every piece of road and terrain this game has to offer. The game is beautiful!! Great customization features, I mean you can customize anything!! I actually like this game better than Forza!! Definitely would recommend buying this game, if your more of a street race gamer more than boring circuit racing games!!!
Rated 7 out of 10 by XFamous007 Its a great game but needs improvement
First of all why does this game require online to play?!?!!? That to me is so stupid. Cars are nice but need more import and tuner cars. Handling could be a little better cuz it gets kinda hard. The open world is awesome and I like how you have to go to certain areas in order to buy certain cars. Make car prices a little more realistic and offer more parts rather than winning cars. Its a pretty legit game thus far, the whole "crew" thing is pretty dumb because if you don't have any friends online and ask people to join they can still do there own thing. Make it to where we can choose to be online or not. I would recommend to others.
