    An epic racing experience that offers much more content than the original game.

    Despite Ivory Tower sticking their fingers in a lot of pies, every racing discipline is a joy to play.

    The Crew 2 is a whisker away from being a great game. You can spend an entire afternoon just enjoying the cars and driving without a specific purpose, while taking in some of the marvelous views, and it feels really good. However, the major downsides - ubiquitous copy-pasting and a rather scant number of genuine innovations - don't allow me to recommend this game to absolutely everyone; not just yet.
  4. The Crew 2 is one of the most ambitious racing game we have ever seen. With gorgeous views and different kind of vehicles, it strikes you really fast. But problems with car physics and lack of PvP, it feels like an unfinished product.

    Despite all the cool features that are touted, it the end is just a soulless racing game that doesn’t excel at anything but also doesn’t really fail in any significant way.

    Other than brief moments, no part of The Crew 2 is captivating enough, including the rubberband-based gameplay, the events themselves, and the overall setup of the open world.

    What a delight to re-appreciate The Crew all over again! The first one. Not this underdeveloped and terribly misguided sequel.

    There just something in this game that make you shift between adrenaline to peaceful, from crazy race on rooftops to riding your motorcycle,There just something in this game that make you shift between adrenaline to peaceful, from crazy race on rooftops to riding your motorcycle, watching sunset with classic music in background...

    So, this game is very similar to Forza Horizon 3, both in terms of gameplay and the look and feel of menus etc. Is this a good thing? WithSo, this game is very similar to Forza Horizon 3, both in terms of gameplay and the look and feel of menus etc. Is this a good thing? With Forza Horizon 3 being my favorite arcade racer of all time, yes, very much so. So compared to Forza, here are the pros and cons.

    Pros:

    * The world is much bigger here, meaning more stuff to do and I found this game having more unique races than Forza Horizon 3.
    * Next to cars, you also have bikes, boats and planes to offer greater variety.
    * All the menus are really clean and slick just like in Forza.

    Cons:

    * The cars look great but environmental graphics looks worse than Forza.
    * Physics are a bit too much Mario Kart style and I definitely prefer the Forza physics.
    * The AI is cheating with rubberbanding and it's super obvious.
    * Getting new vehicles takes forever since you get so little money from each race.

    In summary, if you liked Forza Horizon 3, you will enjoy this as well. However I can see Forza Horizon 4 being more high quality than The Crew 2, but this will be a good racer to play until it's October release.

    -Voice acting is cheap, cheerful and really annoying. The urge to skip cutscenes is a constant.
    -Menus feel cheesy and bloated, I wish there
    -Voice acting is cheap, cheerful and really annoying. The urge to skip cutscenes is a constant.
    -Menus feel cheesy and bloated, I wish there was a real 3, 2, 1, GO! instead of the viewing my car from various different angles
    -Graphics are pretty but nothing to shout about. The world mostly feels open and empty and I could achieve the same levels of fun from GTAV or other open world games that include racing.
    -Sound is very mediocre. The backing tracks to most of the game are frankly annoying as hell and warrant instant turning off in the settings.

    Overall the game is actually quite fun, though the race mechanics feel quite dull, you can't really do "tricks" in any of the vehicles except maybe the plane, the game has everything you would expect from a car game, you press one stick to go, the other to brake and one button for turbo. Something mario kart did better nearly a decade ago.

    Really, i don't understand Ubisofts directions with games in recent year, they seem to be constantly churning out mediocre half finished and boring crap then selling you the other half of the game for 33.99 in a "season pass"

    I would say this is a "good" game but not at the current price points. This is a huge cash grab from Ubi to reap back profits on a pretty mediocre product.

    So played first crew, spent 100+ hours in that game. It was amazing and fun and exciting, graphics were alright, cars felt like cars. Now thisSo played first crew, spent 100+ hours in that game. It was amazing and fun and exciting, graphics were alright, cars felt like cars. Now this comes out and lets compare to the first part:
    - Graphics: same if not worse.
    - Sound: worse and not barely linked to whats happening to the vehicle in game (Im talking gear switches etc)
    - Physics: cars/planes/boats they all feel the same - like soap on watery surface. Completely cardboard.
    - Map : smaller than the original, replaying same races over and over again? Really?!

    All in all it doesn't feel like a work on mistakes from the first game ( cuz lets face it: not perfect) instead we got some horrible feeling arcade race/flight/boat thing. I tell you this, try it and then try NFS Most Wanted for example, or even better underground 2. We can all agree neither of theese games are sims, both arcade, but I can bet you will have same or even better experience with old NFS than this. And lets not compare it to any other arcade racing game that is NOT released yet.

    Ну так обосраться еще нужно было постараться - хотя о чем я, этож Ubisoft.
    По порядку:
    - управление не починили, самолеты и лодки вообще
    Ну так обосраться еще нужно было постараться - хотя о чем я, этож Ubisoft.
    По порядку:
    - управление не починили, самолеты и лодки вообще тихий ужас
    - графоний местами даже хуже стал
    - карта как по мне стала скучнее
    - тюнинга меньше
    - баги/глюки, один старт на PS чего стоит
    То что "якобы добавили" можно было в качестве дополнительного аддона добавить в первую часть, но нет - этож не путь "джедая".
    Но ума довести не смогли и решили с нуля начать обозначив сея создание второй частью.
    И все равно - обосрались...

    p.s. Rest in Peace серия The Crew...
