Off-Road Madness Community Challenge

Drivers, get ready to get off-road!

From March 30th to the 3rd of April, we’ll be counting the amount of kilometers driven off-road by the entire community! Doesn’t matter what Spec you’re in, as long as there’s no asphalt in sight!

So this is the ideal opportunity to get your Raid car leveled up, get to stunting in a Dirt Spec and generally have a dusty good time!

If we get to 4.5 Million kilometers, we’ll be unlocking an all new Faction mission: “History in the Making.” As a teaser, this will be the first Faction mission on a racetrack AND it’ll require a specific car!

You know what do: Leave the luxury of paved roads for some kick-ass Off-Road Madness!

И так. Игра получилась довольно интересная. Графина на среднем уровне, задумка открытого мира очень интересная. Наличие кампании тоже очень хорошо, но после ее прохождения становиться скучно в игре. Так же присутсвует проблема с ботами. Это большой минус.

Well. The Crew... I honestly was dying to get this game, and I dropped the $85 for the gold edition. I figured since I loved racing games to death that this would be the perfect fit for me. But boy was I wrong. I do have a lot of fun on it but beware, the car physics are horrible and the map is sub-par at best. You get this hype from looking at the game that it's going to be awesome with a gigantic map and tons of cities to drive through but then you get in and BAM, there's only 2 cities that are slightly like 10% close to the historic scale of it, and those two are LA and New York. The problems with those are they take up 1/4 of each region they're in. West Coast: 75% nothing, 25% LA. East Coast: roughly 40% New York and 60% Hills and forests. The handling in the game is sub-par too, which I kinda braced for knowing it was on a havok engine. But when you really get into it it's one of the single most disappointing things in the game. Most of the cars either handle like you're steering them with your feet or handle like you crank the wheel over on each turn even if you're trying to only follow slight contours in the road.

+The cars are nice
+The map is still nice despite the major lack of any cities between New York and LA
+Bonneville Salt Flats is acutally made to a barely historic scale (only for the speed area)
+Street cars handle pretty well
+Circuit cars are hilarious
+Circuit Silverado
+HUMMER

-Miserable offroad physics because of the vehicle flipping limitations, Raid car physics leave a lot to be desired
-crash cutscenes are the most annoying things ever and tend to take ~15 seconds to go away
-Missions are subpar at best
-Campaign is linear and not even racing
-some of the fastest cars in the game are some of the slowest performance cars (Koe♥♥♥♥segg Agera R: 279 mph fullstock (amazing buff), and 219mph level 1299 perf tune. Real/recorded top speed: Nowhere near any of these at 263mph)
-Between LA and New York the cities are horrible and very half ♥♥♥♥♥, 90% of the giant cities that rival LA are just represented as small towns (Dallas, Washington DC, etc...)
-A lot of major cities aren't even represented in the game (Houston, Phoenix, Glendale, Palm Springs [I know it's in the game but that's like one house, palm springs is a pretty nice place], Denver, etc..)
-The game feels like minimal effort was put into it.
--Crashes every 1-3 hours, usually during something important like the end mission or a skill
--Graphics depend too heavily on shaders and shadowing, not real effort and modelling skills.
-Cops are kinda annoying but really not bad any more, updates changed the police and made them hilarious golf balls for Hummers.
-Tuning the H1 to Raid spec is horrible because it tunes it like a gas engine. The Duramax LLY diesel tuned to 600hp on a would NOT have only 700lb/ft of torque, it would EASILY be in the 4 digits (around 1,150ft/lb) for torque and it would be unstoppable. Work on diesel engines, then it gets my vote (granted it's an extremely small gripe because I still love the H1 to death ingame)
-Mapping is horrible, around Black Mount there are patches of trees floating 5 feet off the ground and trees growing in the middle of the train tracks that the train just drives through, and in New York the storm gutters in the tunnels underground have no collision meshes and your wheels get stuck underground if you hit that area.

My personal thoughts on this is they should put it as an early access game, not a full release game. This release is just.. For lack of better word, it's just not good, it's an incomplete game marketed as a full game.
If they announce they have no plans to do any major revamps I would never recommend this to any of my friends. All in all, The Crew pretty much turned out to be exactly what I hoped it wouldn't be, and that is just another overhyped game that isn't worth the money, destroyed by Ubisoft forcing the game developer to cut a lot of corners and release a broken game

EDIT: My view of the game went up a lot with the addition of the Mini with a circuit tune and a Ford Focus with a Raid tune (the 2 funniest cars in the game now) There were plenty of updates after that but I have neglected to mention them, but it's still not worth paying the full price for, anyone interested should get it while it's on sale.

Thank you for reading.

EDIT: Over time and what not, Ivory Tower corrected some of the issues. Corrections are written in (italic) after each section. Enjoy reading! A lot changed!


After more than 60 hours of playing this, I keep editing this review to keep you updated.
For. ♥♥♥♥s. Sake. Slowly improving to become a "quality racing game".

Racing-MMO: Announced as an MMO Game. A single Session can only hold 8 Players. ALSO: Uses NAT-Connection system. A player who is not in your region won't be able to join your session. The Crew (Steam Worldwide)? ♥♥♥♥ off. (March 2015: They corrected matchmaking, it's faster now! No other sewere issues were changed online-wise.)

CARS: This game holds a breathtaking amount of 27 cars. And they are not even available in every spec. Test Drive Unlimited 2 had 130, for comparison. They also handle next to nothing realistic. Muscle cars have better grip than a BMW. RWD, FWD or AWD? No difference either.
(March 2015 Correction: Handling SEVERLY improved, more and more specsgot/get added every month)

ENVIRONMENT: Pretty neat. Animals. People. Cannot be touched but still a nice additon (That's Ubisoft Reflections for you there --> Driver:SF). The Map is huge and even after 40 hours of normal play time you wont even have it explored half-way. Environment is a huge plus here. Very good. 7.8/10 because there's too much undetailed water. (Will they ever update their ♥♥♥♥ing water? Jesus.)

TUNING: Well, yes. Kind of. Better than Rivals. Worse than Most Wanted 2005. It's not bad compared to other recent racing games and you can tune your car just enough to be "individual". Severe Lack of stickers. (FIXED! This game is OVERFLOWING with a giant variation of stickers! Also: seasonal stickers! Valentines day etc.) Good job listening to us, Ivory Tower!)

AI and Police: THE RUBBERBANDING IS REAL. Ivory Tower SERIOUSLY managed to make a rubberbanding system 1299 times WORSE than EA. It doesn't matter if it's a Crown Vic, F-150 or Corvette. Cop cars have astonishing speeds of up to 250mph (400kmh), weigh about 30 metric tons and can seemingly drive through traffic, other cop cars, YOU if they want to, and can make objects in their way such as fences merely DISINTEGRATE. Also, if you're too far away, they just fly to you. Really ♥♥♥♥ing neat. It's impossible to outrun a bunch of Lexus Sedans with a high-end Ford GT. The cops either keep up with you for 20 minutes straight or magically stop chasing you after 10 seconds. Sometimes they jump. Sometimes they fall through the ground. But most importantly, a CROWN VICTORIA can just BRAKE and STOP in front of a HUMMER H1 WITHOUT TAKING DAMAGE AND SUCCESSFULLY STOPPING THE 4 TONS HUMMER H1 IN UNDER A SECOND. Oh, and the cops bust you in like 3 seconds. Also: If you're under 30mph, you've got next to no chance of escaping the cops. (March 2015: weight-Issue corrected! Police cars weigh about 1.5 tons as they should and you are able to escape them too. 3-second-bust not changed. Disintegration and teleporting still exists too.)

In-Game-Money: Not enough. There's just not enough. Everything is overpriced, the game is almost dragging you towards its microtransactions. 40000 Crew Credits for 6$. You're not even able to buy a car with these 6$. 40000 is nothing. You can buy 4 good vinyls with that. Stickers.

Connectivity: As I mentioned before, terrible. NAT-based. Lag Simulator 2014.

Servers: Ubisoft.

Graphics: Meh. Acceptable. Textures not too great, and I'm not talking about the world. Your characters jacket looks like it's from Just Cause 2. No mirror reflections in first person mode. Alternate graphics in first person mode, increasing SSAO. Could cause frame drop on older graphics cards. Framerate absolutely awful and completely unjustified. Distant textures --> Assassins Creed: Unity. Texture filtering? Not really.

This game is still unfinished.

IGNs 6/10 is completely justified.
Polygons 4.5/10 is still justified.
My rating below based on my listed points in this review:

MMO-Aspects: 4/10
Cars: 6/10
Environment: 9/10
Tuning: 6/10
AI and Police: 2/10
Online Features: 3/10
Graphics: 6/10
Overall: 5.1/10
(This was the initial release score I gave The Crew, the game got/gets fixed over time, however I will and have never corrected this score in any way)

This game is in the Top 3 Worst Releases Of 2014 in my opinion.
Hint: They are all Ubisoft.
Goodnight, I've wasted enough time with this garbage.


And yes, I'm kind of still playing it after writing this (negative) review. They continue to add more content (that should've been here by release but whatever) so that kinda keeps it going. Will edit each month or so.

This game can be summed up into two words, "Wasted Potential".

The Good
- Large detailed map than can be driven for hours on end with little to no repetition

The Bad
-Sub par car selection
-Car/Driver levels are pointless as all races/racers will scale to you
- Cheap AI features that borders on cheating/hacking, they can move at impossible speeds, plow through obstacles with no slowdown, will rarely spin out while a slight nudge will send you flying
-Bad navigation system, so many times the navigation system will point me to an off-ramp only to curve back onto the highway, or will direct me through obstacles including walls

Simply put this is a lazy attempt by the devs, they did not put proper effort to make this game fun. Instead they took the cheap way out and its more frustrating than fun. It is not an MMO. They intend to fix the problems but this is just another game that follows the disturbing trend of releasing unfinished games for full price then slowly fixing it to be what it should have been. I wish i could get a refund and spend the money once I see a REAL COMPLETE game but i guess i just have to hope they actually do what I paid for.

I was looking forward to this title, and that makes writing this even more disappointing, but pretty much the only pro of this game is that you can drive around a miniature version of the United States.

Let's begin with what you're going to experience first - the physics are awful, and I mean it. It's almost like it wasn't even meant to be a driving game. Next, The Crew also has a story - though at times it's ridiculous and worse than Tommy Wiseau's The Room. And throughout that story, you're going to notice one little fact:

The Crew is not a racing game.

It's a game about driving from spot A to spot B under time pressure, or escaping the police, or winning a race to settle things down with your evil leader enemy rival who just wanted to kill you, but then thought it'd be better to just try to race together.

You're just going to repeat the same missions over and over again, with the game giving you different reasons to do so each time. For example, why don't you go crash into 80 randomly sitting boxes because you want to ruin some evil guys' delivery plans? But then, half an hour later, you could also crash into 80 randomly sitting boxes again because one of them is guaranteed to contain evidence you need to stop some evil guys' plans.

But when the time comes and you get a mission where you have to race your opponents, now that's the time to realize that it truly has nothing to do with racing. No matter how good you are, the other cars are always going to stick to your back. You can be awesome for the entire race, but they're always going to be right behind you. Then you make one little mistake (or a school bus spawns right in front of you) near the end and your race is ruined.

As a little bonus, The Crew also features microtransactions.

Don't get me wrong - it has the potential to be fun if you're just looking to drive around with your mates and don't care about how the car feels. But the game honestly sucks for everything else apart from that.

Well, that was The Crew...
After about 42 Hours ive seen the most things, beat the Campain and most of the Challenges.

I bought "The Crew" with Hope for a Game that would be as entertaining as "Test Drive Unlimited 2".
If you played that before, you will notice the similarity, many parts of TDU2 are also in The Crew.
Sounds good right? No, not at all.
Short Pro+Contra List on bottom of the Review

What they both have in common is for example that the Police Cars are either always faster than you, regardless if you drive 100 km/h or 300 km/h or give up after 100 meters for no reason at all... Also the AI and Catch-Up-Systems during Races are equally bad.

Other than that,
Test Drive Unlimited 2 had probably over 130 different Vehicles, from many different Brands
The Crew has maybe 40? (Until Ubisoft will add more DLC Cars for extra $$$)

In Test Drive Unlimited 2 you had 1 small and one big Island as Gaming Worlds, Ibiza and Hawaii.
The Crew offers 1 Map, a minature version of the United States.

When the Servers at Test Drive Unlimited 2 are down, you can keep playing your Savegame in Offline Mode.
When the Crew Servers are down, you cant even Launch the Game.

Test Drive Unlimited 2 offered a lot of things to do, you were able to go to a Driving School before races, to make Racing Licenses, to buy Houses, Cars, Bikes,Furniture for your Houses, you were able to customize your Avatar with clothes, Haircuts, Makeup, Accessoires. Also there were more design options for the Cars as well.
It was possible to go to go into the Houses, walk around, similar to "The Sims". You could visit other Players homes, take Photos, there even was a Casino where you could play Blackjack, Poker, Slotmachines with other Players... and a few other things.

The Crew doesnt offer much, dull and short Story Races, there are nice Cutscenes, but the Story itself is rather dumb. There are also PVP events where the fastest Car always wins, nevermind how bad the Driver is..., Fraction Missions, Skillchallenges, Sightseeing and not really many customization options.
BUT: At least you will have fun here, when youre able to drive around the Map with a Friend!


While i played The Crew, i often asked myself how awesome the Game could be, if it was also developed and published by Atari and Eden Games.
Ubisoft delivered, as expect, another Game that feels unfinished, like they stopped the developing Process at the Late Alpha Stage and just published it to cash in, for next Years "The Crew 2"?

For example, you sit inside your Car, the Driving Mirror and Side Mirrors dont show anything, They are just grey.
Same goes for the Racing Wheel Instruments. They were supposed to show Speed, Gear and RPM, but they also just show you a fantastic grey bitmap.
Only a few Cars have an Animation for a Gearshifting Character. Inside most of the Cars, the Avartar just keeps his Hands on the Steering Wheel and the Gears shift magically.
There are probably a few more little annoyances, but those points are already unnecessary
I would expect that from an early 2005 Game, but not from a 2014 release.

The Things i liked about The Crew, were the incredibly detailed surroundings.
You see NPC's walking around, like a beggar moving his belongings in a shopping cart, Prisoners knocking stones in front of a Prison, Planes and Helicopters flying around ... and many more realistic Daily Life Events.
The Map is filled with Wild Animals, they move a bit strange, but are still a nice addition.

Also the Animated Sky looks really nice.

What else is left to say? Yeah. The Cars.
While Test Drive Unlimited 2 had a very good balance and Car selection, The Crew's Cars are very unbalanced
The Crew got a bunch of overpowered and ugly (My opinion, yes.) American Muscle Cars.
They look like they weight 5 tons, have the aerodynamic values of a Brick Row House, but got a surreal good handling and can easily outrun a Lamborghini.
Thats just plain dumb.

Besides that, there are a handfull european and asian Cars. But yeah they are the minority in this Game.

The Handling of the Cars alltogether is good, mostly. The Handling of the Offroad Vehicles can be very frustrating.
For sure this wont be any fun playing with Keyboard and Mouse.

Pro and Contra for the Lazy People:

+ Very detailed environment (Working NPC's, a lot of Wilflife,,...)
+ Better Graphics than Test Drive Unlimited 2
+ Detailed Leaderboards and Statistics for everything
+ Good Car handling and controls, with a few exceptions.
+ Open World, you can drive wherever you want

~ Servers are down for Maintenance regulary, and when they work, it can happen that you still dont see any other Players.

- - Uplay Launcher
- Sometimes the "Play with Friends" Option works, other times it doesnt work at all.
- No Offline Mode
- Rather small Fleet of Cars
- Unrealistic Engine Sounds
- Missing Animations for Cockpit Mirrors. in some Cars also for Gear switching and Steering Wheel Speedometer, non funtional Indicators
- No possibility to add your own Music
- Boring and monotonous Storymode, Races are too short.
- Not many Customization Options
- The Crew was announced as a "Car MMO", but there are only up to 8 People in one Session.
- No changing weather conditions (Except of Snow in the Mountains.)
- Microtransactions
- The Cars look great, but some of the textures of trees,bushes,... and the water look rather bad.



All together i would say, "The Crew" has nice looking Cars, but it isnt the big next Generation Racing Game that was announced and promised.
Its good for cruising around with Friends (If youre lucky enough to get a connection..) , to find out a few things about the United States, but in the Main Category "RACING" it lacks a lot.

You can pick it up when its on sale for 20 Bucks, its not a completly bad Game but i can not recommend it for the full Price.

For the most part I can IGNORE the BAD BAD BAD AWFUL AFWUL cop chases, car customization and stuff but I bought this game for my friend HOPING that we can play together. Never ever had it crossed my mind that my friend and I CAN'T PLAY TOGETHER this so called MMO. Pure crap! And the 50 euro price tag is a cruel joke. I can't begin to say how sorry I am to have payed for this game.

THIS GAME IS NOT WORTH $70 dollars, I'd pay $20 bucks for this piece of crap. This is NOT the game we were advertised, the videos displayed showed a ♥♥♥♥ing fuctioning game with legitimatly good looking races.
Cons=
-Only 40 cars
-cars are unbalanced, a 1967 chevy impala can apparently catch a 2013 ferrari, every nissan car dousn;t even have a top speed in this, and those cars that do have a top speed all have the same top speed save for a 10km here and there, example, 2011 mustang has 240km, BMW z4 250km, camaro 250km for both old and new.
-A.I are ♥♥♥♥♥, cars are super unbalanced when the A.I is driving, so many times I have seen a golf hit 300km an hour in less than a ♥♥♥♥ing eye blink, and their made of ♥♥♥♥ing adamantium, ford raptor beats a ferrari in speed but a ferrari knocks the raptor off the track like it was nothing, and the ♥♥♥♥ing cops, dousnt matter whether you have dirt tyres or road cops hit their top speed anywhere, ♥♥♥♥ing going vertical up a mountain, and they are always faster and beat your ♥♥♥ till you cry

Where to start ? ...

I gave my hope away on this game, I was expecting so much and it disapointed me.
Such a great map, good graphics and simcade driving, was everything I was looking for, to play with some friends, I was hoping with the updates they would fix the majority of bugs, and add some new stuff to the game, but no.
So far I think they released the beta version on the game, sometimes I even think the beta had less bugs then now, lol ..

Pros :
- Great map, it's really awesome;
- Graphics are good;
- Cockpit view, the interiors are well designed;
- Simcade driving is fun;
- Many specs ( Street, Dirt, Performance, Raid and Circuit ).

Cons:
- Lack of cars, only 47 fullstock cars (if I'm not wrong.);
- Exterior car custimization is just poor:
- 200 rims ? And you get like the same rim with 3/5 different colors.
- The bumpers, some of them the only thing that changes is the headlights.
- Stickers, pre-made stickers that you can't even change the color of them;
- The MMO , ... when you launch the game you can see like 100 people on the same server as you, but while you are on free-roam you can see up to 8 people. That's like driving offline, with an option to PVP that will take you to a lobby with 4~8 people to race against.
- Cockpit view:
- When PVPing if there's no collison , the other player will just pass by your car and you won't be able to see nothing in from of you, only a black shade of your oponent.
- In cockpit view your mirrors don't work;
- AI , the AI is just impossible, if you are being chased by the police it's really hard to escape. You can go 400 km/h with a Circuit SLS on an Highway that a Ford Crown Victoria will chase you down.
- Some of the game physics are just out of this world:
- You get rammed by another player or a AI car your car just fly's away, you try to ram a cop you get stucked.
- You hit a fence or a pile of garbage on the sidewalk you lose like 10/20 km/h;
- PVPing, sometimes you need to wait 5 minutes to join a lobby to get rammed mostly.
- In PVP the lobby leader (the player with most wins) is the one who dictates wich track you are going to play and the settings, with or without traffic/collision, instead of being choosen by a vote among the lobby players.

(...)

And there's the Crew Credits, that for me it's neutral, in my point of view they are there to help people that lack of time to "farm" money to buy a car that they like, or parts of it, for people that buy the game to play 3/5hours a week.
Because you can easily make money doing pvp races (15~18k bucks each race and with perks the most expensive car is like 708k), you can buy all the cars and parts without having to buy the CC's.

Should you buy the game?
Yes/No.
- Yes, if you are into this type of games, but buy it heavly discounted.
- No, if you buying it full price, because for the price that they are asking for it they should give players way more stuff and not this.

To me this was the most expensive "early-acess" that I've ever bought.

-Sir, the game is ready, it's friggin'' awesome, we can release it !
-Woh, woh, woh awesome you said ? Do you know who are you working for ?
-yes, Ubisoft.
-Right, and what's our reputation ?
-Being the best at screwing up good game concept and pissing off our customers ?
-Exactly ! Now this game has many flaws but none of them are really frustrating
-Indeed, that's why we created Uplay back then
-Not enough son, not enough. I want the whole team in the crisis room in 5 minutes

(gathering the team and explaining the situation)

-Sir, I got an idea
-Sure go ahead
-Well why don't we force the player to connect to a main server ?
-Many games do that, not really frustrating.
-True, but we would require the player to be constantly connected
-ooooh, that's good, I like it
-And the main server would be super instable and people would be kicked from the game at anytime, loosing their progression !
-Genius, I promote you president of Ubisoft.

EDIT : You guys say it's a MMO ?
Do you actually know what MMO stands for ? Just the first "M" ?
You'll interact with 8 players max. at a time...holly molly, that's massive !

Ubisoft used the term MMO for marketing purpose only, there's isn't a single solid reason to prevent us from playing this game in SP.

While I have had an amazing time playing this game, I cannot in good conscience recommend it to anyone. Ubisoft support is lacking on a good day, downright rude and dismissive on bad.

At the time I write this, I'm 9 days late recieving a Crew-Credit pack, while their store is still up selling them.

Also world records on every skill challenge/mission is held by hackers, so there's no recognition for actually doing well.

For a game advertise as an "MMO" for cars it's quite sad that you have only a limited number of person by instance (something around 8 person).

The car choice is nice, if you like muscle car and exotic. But there is also a serious lack of diversity (2 asian car, that is really not much). We should have iconic car that was used in rally racing, audi quattro, mitsubishi evo (at least one), a subaru STI (at least one also), the first mini, toyota celica. Also we are missing nice super/hyper japanese car (no nissan GTR R35 really ?, no Lexus LFA)

The car customisation is quite poor also, we have a lot of choice for the starter car but not so much for the rest of it.

The driving experience is cool though driving through the whole united states with friends is quite nice.

I would still recommend this game, but not at this price.

Its 4 AM so take this review with a grain of salt.

Summery:
Not an MMO!
Never more than 8 players per session!
Micro-Tranactions!
Cop chases are a joke
Cop cars are tanks (compleately different physics than normal cars)
Opponent AI is BAD
Not NEARLY the custemization that NFS games used to have in the 90's!!!
Uplay
Non-existent tuning
Binary progression
Chat system is never used


Rant:
"6k people are currently playing The Crew" and yet, I'm forced to play single player half the time. The way the pregression system is set up, people who have already compleated the missions you are working on have no reason to help because they have already unlocked the part that you earn for compleating the mission.Not to mention that those 6k people that are currently in game are devided up into 8 player lobby/sessions which means that you will almost NEVER run into another player unless you are going out of your way to do so.
Currently the chat system isn't used by anyone, and so the game just feels like a giant single player game.
I repeat, this game is NOT AN MMO, its a single player game that wants to be an MMO but doesn't know what its doing.

The Crew also has annoying, easy to fix flows that you don't see in older games like NFS carbon.
In its current state the game is unfinished and needs a lot of work.

The one thing that really grinds my gears is that I bought the game for $60, and yet ubisoft wants me to spend more money on crew credits.
Why is it that you pay $60 only to be met with micro-tranactions.
Ubisoft, STOP IT!!!

Edit: Alright, now that I've gotten some sleep, I should mention that the game is still a lot of fun, and compaired to other modern racing games that I've played this one is my favorite, it still has some things that need to be fixed, buts its fun never the less.

Driving across the massive map is awesome
Took me 120 minutes to drive from one side to the other
Custemization is good compairitively speaking
Once you reach level 20+ drifting around corners is a blast

I have high hopes for the game, and I hope that eventually we will be able to play with more people.
in my opinion its not worth $60 at the moment, but if it goes on sale or gets a major update that might change.

This game is basically "how to not make a good racing game 101"

1. Auto catch up
2. AI is over tuned to try and make up for the players ability to use cars "over the cap"
a) cops are unstopable all seeing terminators and getting away from this is more chore than skill
b) it literally ignores the in game physics
c) uses non spec (street,dirt, perf) cars perfectly in any situation Perf car on dirt? No problem, you however won't stop being sideways
3. The game at points forces you to use sub par spec cars because "story" which are usually just time trials with an annoying npc yelling at you
4. PvP is waiting in a queue to never getting into the game
5. co-op is just two people suffering through a race and most the time even if someone pulls up next to you in the same race they'll just ignore the co-op request
6. Overly expensive cars with arbitrary limitations on what can and cannot be certain specs
7. Raid spec activities are just awful
8. car spec designs are generic and the for purchase asthetics don't fix much
9. If you do manage to find someone in co-op then the lag shows up pretty bad
10. world is flat and uniteresting until cars randomly pop in and you crash

If you're on the fence about buying this game don't do it. Just wait until GTA 5 comes out on PC and play GTA Online because it's superior in every way.

Updated at 9/1/2015, Status update
Appearently I have written too much, please click HERE or HERE(doc) for the full review

There is a summary at the end if you are too busy to see through the whole review.
And just a kindly reminder, there is no R-35 in the game yet.

-------9/1/2015-------
Patch released at 7th
+ Car fix
+ Better connection

- No fix on AI
- Faction War still meaningless
- Still no rear mirror
- Little more bugs

Better than before but not enough
------------------------

Hate to say it, but if you are not a big fan of a free-roam racing game, don't buy it at this moment
Although I am not recommending this game, this doesn't mean I don't like this game, as you see I have thrown more than 100 hours in it

The Crew was a good game for people to driving around the states, it still is, but with tons of flaws atm.
Still, I should start on the good things first as some of you may still interested in the game.

At first, It has a biggest map for a racing game I ever saw, even I have spent more then 100 hours in the game, I still have about 1/4 to 1/5 of the map is undiscovered.
If you only drive to explorer the map and not doing missions, it should take you at least 12 hours, as you can drive 3-4 hours in a starting car just driving a lap of the border.

The game also provide various terrain and environment, with landmarks for players to enjoy and explorer freely.
In some of the story mission, it will even provide some environment effect like fireworks or plane flying over your head which is quite stunning when you see it first time.

There are 5 specs for cars: Street, Dirt, Perf, Raid, Circuit
For Street, Dirt and Perf, there are parts to let you to customize the cars, like front bumper, hood, rear wing, etc.
Just be aware not all the car has all 5 spec.
The interior of the cars are quite detail and you are able to customize the color of it in most of the cars.

There are also different activity like skill challenge or limited period mission that may keep you playing.


Bad things
First of all, lack of cars, there are only 40+5(wreck) cars if you are not buying the season pass, also, there are no Audi, Toyota, Subaru, Mitsubishi, Honda, Hyundai, Vovle and more.
And for each brands there are only 1-2 cars.

The handling are not realistic like GT series, it is acceptable but you may feel strange for the first few hours.

The things that can be driving through are also uncertain, you can drive through some fences in cities, and bounce off with others.

There are no technical tuning in this game, like suspension modification, angle of tires, etc.
The only thing you get is upgrading the equipment directly.

There is no rear mirror view when you are in interior mode

The mechanism of automatic transmission is flawed (Details in Full review)

The difficulty of this game is very hard in different aspect and it is not adjustable.
First, the Rival AI's car can be insanely fast, they will not slow down by environment unless crash.
For some casual driver with the staring cars, it is very hard for them to catch up.
And with the auto catch-up system, even if you are good at driving and lead the whole race, you make one mistake and you will be overtake then lose.

You can invite other players to the mission to try to decrease the difficulty
But the problem is you will need to wait for the game to connect to a random session before you can invite players you don't know
And with a maximum 8 people session, there is very hard to find one who actually willing to play with you

About the police chase, first, the police is as fast as rival AI's car in missions.
They have a circle radar around them instead of a cone vision which should be able to block by buildings
The police heli can see through the tunnels
Most ridiculously is that if you go too far from the police cars, the police car can spawn anywhere near you, and sometime in front of you
This make you need to maintain an approximate distance that their radar cannot catch you but no police car will spawn
To escape it should be always as fast as possible, I don't know why they need to make this system so counterintuitive

There is some perk in the game which can actually increase the handling, acceleration, speed, etc. in the game
Which mean even with a same car, a LV50 player still have a big advantage compare to a LV1 player, if the LV1 player haven’t bought any perk points using credit which can be obtain by paying real money.

Car level nearly mean everything, especially when doing story missions with others.
With my 1200 lv cars, I always outrun the guy who invited me to the coop mission in his/her first time attempt.
In my experience, the higher lv car you have, the higher position you will get in PVP.
And to get a car over 1000lv, you will first have to reach 50 lv at your character
Which mean you will have a big disadvantage before you reach 50 lv

In this game there is a faction war system but meaningless

The stability of the session can be very unstable
When you are in a crew, you select a mission and invite you crewmate, you can end up with your crew member playing the mission themselves and you get a forever loading screen
Similar things happen when you select public PVP lobby, you will be the only one who get into the lobby and your crewmate will continue finding a lobby.
Sometimes you crew member will not appear in your screen even when you are beside of him/her.


PVP sessions also contain connection problems
Sometimes when other player in your session have a unstable connection, the game will pause for 5 seconds
when the player have a really bad connection, you game can have more than 10 times pauses, which is extremely annoying
sometimes you can also getting left behind at the starting line when people already racing in front of you with about a hundred yards away


This is a nice racing game, and for some people it is still a masterpiece
but it is also nearly the worst racing online game ever, don't even know why they make the MMO feature as a selling point
The slogan of this game is "Never Drive Alone", but for me it is like "Never Drive Alone If You Want To Suffer"

Summary
Pros
Huge map for exploration
Many customization for some cars in some spec
Detail and customizable interior
Beautiful and various environment
Environment effects in story missions
Different activities that keep you playing

Cons
Lack of cars
No technical tuning
Handling/Physics are not realistic
Flaws in automatic transmission
No rear mirror
Difficulty is overall high and not adjustable
AI cars will not slow down by environment
Maximum 8 people session make players hard to crew up
Police chasing system is stupid and annoying
Perk system can provide unbalanced advantages
LV of cars nearly mean everything
Faction War system is totally unfair
Forced online with the server is unstable
Game statistics can be messed up by the game/server
Unstable connection among friends/crew member and to the sessions
PVP connection problem
Bad avatar system
Various Bugs

Mixed
Too much uncertainty on the road

Recommend to buy it if you
Love free rome style racing game
Have friends to play together and can tolerate to any possible fail from the server
Love customize your cars and show off

Not Recommend to buy it if you
Cares more about realism of racing
Are a casual driver and consider this game as a single player racing game
Don't want to use tons of times to climb the ladder (Cars LV, PVP, Faction)
Want to drive cars that doesn't exist in the game (find the list on the internet)
Want to race on 1:1 scale circuit
Have a bad connection

do NOT purchase, even on sale!


Pros
  • Fun at times
  • Graphics are nice

Cons
  • Horrible physics
  • "Rubberbanding" AI (just like you'd find in a cart racer)
  • Low amounts of customization
  • Low amount of vehicles
  • Virtually NO performance options available except for the ones you unlock from races.
  • Horrible main stream music with no variety.
  • It is NOT a simulator as it is tagged.
  • it is NOT a MMO.(about 10 people per session does not make it an MMO)
  • The little multiplayer they have is badly done.
  • The story, while decent, is a massive heap of plot holes, just forget about them it makes it better.
  • Roads are made of what seems like ice.
  • the speed indicated seems like its way faster than the speed you seem to be going.
  • Wants to show me random pointless cutscenes every 30 seconds.
  • Cities are not ever close to accuratly represented to scale or appearance.
  • Free roam would be nice, except its useless. you are forced to enter the map to start missions anyway.
  • Micro transactions for in-game currency, are you kidding me? On a $60 game!?

The physics are just wrong. tap an electrical pole and it just pops out of the ground and goes soaring through the air. seriously.

The rubberbanding is absolutly horrible, I gained the lead by a huge amount and out of nowhere the other cars top speed raises by at least double letting them catch up in no time at all. Meanwhile if i hit one thing, just one, be it trash can or fence, I have offically lost the race because I cannot keep up.

The only way it seems to get performance parts is to win races. So win them all with gold or you wont be able to move on.

Huge story plot hole #1 --- Man puts hit on you, Go looking for guys friends to beat them in a race. Why wouldn't they just shoot you..?
