About the Game

Your car is your avatar - fine tune your ride as you level up and progress through 5 unique and richly detailed regions of a massive open-world US. Maneuver through the bustling streets of New York City and Los Angeles, cruise down sunny 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 players on the road – all potentially worthy companions to crew up with, or future rivals to compete against. This is driving at its most exciting, varied and open.

NEVER DRIVE ALONE
Jump in and out seamlessly and build your crew of four through bonding or intense rivalry. Whether your objective is to take down a convoy or to escape the police, achieving it with friends ensures a fresh experience each time you join in.

A PLAYGROUND OF UNPRECEDENTED SCOPE AND VARIETY
The entire United States is your driving playground – all roads and everything in between. Every type of terrain imaginable is yours to master – from downtown city streets to suburbs, hillsides, cornfields, canyons, desert dunes or even race tracks.

PREPARE YOUR CAR FOR THE NEXT CHALLENGE
Collect body and performance parts as you progress to customize and upgrade your licensed cars. Equip your ride with 5 different tuning specs (street, perf, dirt, raid, circuit) to adapt to different driving terrains. Choose from a wide range of perks to enhance your vehicle according to your driving style.

THE EXPERIENCE GOES ON, WHEREVER YOU ARE
Continue the experience on iOS, Android tablets, and on the web. Track of your friends’ performance and fine tune your ride before taking it live to set new records, or send your crew on jobs while on-the-go to earn more XP and parts.

The Crew is an alright game, if you are into racing + mmos. The only problem I'm concerned about, reading on internet, is that microtransactions WILL be available later in the game (the CC currency). As far as I know, there's a huge difference between the bronze and golden part, and if you will be able to purchase all the golden parts with real money, there WILL be a huge difference between those who do not pay and those who do.
I'd really ask ubi$oft to make the microtransactions available ONLY for COSMETICS, just like on all other games on interwebz (Dota 2, League of Legends, Team Fortress 2 [HATS!], and so on. I'm pretty sure you will gain a lot from those cosmetics (people won't mind if you add a 30$ cosmetic item that will have "unusual" effects, such as leaving some kind of light trail, etc) and players won't actually hate you because you released such a nice game but ♥♥♥♥ed it up in the end with P2W system.

Edit 1: I'm not sure if there's anything else to be done after you hit the level 10 cap. Any other missions you complete will give you bucks BUT not xp. Also the parts you unlock are for level 15+, so I find it kinda useless (for now). Does anyone agree, at least in the next closed beta, to raise the level cap to 20? It takes about 2 hours to complete all the story quests and get to level 10.
If you want to actually do something to earn you stuff, try find all the 20 parts of certain cars that will unlock you some really awesome vehicles, with good stats too as well.

tl;dr: play game 10/10, ubi$oft plz no microtransactions on performance parts, raise level cap 20, ty.

Edit 2: I made a poll about microtransactions, please vote: http://strawpoll.me/2428839

Beta tested Aug. 25 to Aug 29.

I am going to get this out of the way first, yes this game looks and feels a lot like Need for Speed's Underground and Most Wanted series. For me that is the best possible thing, because I loved those games and I am not a fan of where that franchise is at the moment.

Story - The story will immediately bring you back to the NFS stories. While it isn't the most original, it fits what the game is. the cinematics don't look bad, but the cut scenes after almost everything you do can be a little annoying. You can skip them though, which is of course a good thing.

The driving mechanics are more arcade style, but it still has a realistic feel to it for those who like that. I like to switch between over the top and in the car camera, and I will say they did a good job with the in the car detail.

The controls are great, even with a keyboard and mouse if you're a fan of that mode. From what I have seen both controller and wheel work great with this game. Personally I prefer controller, but might be looking to get into a wheel if I find myself playing it a lot.

The world. It took me 14 minutes to get from Chicago to New York City. That is a long time considering I was driving around 140 the entire time. The world is huge, I am a little upset that they didn't even think my homestate of Connecticut was important enough to put on the map, but hey I can forgive them. During the beta I ran into many players and was invited to their crews as well.

Missions. The most fun mission that I took part in was I believe called a Raid. Myself and two other players had to chase down an NPC and take them out. We were in our street cars and the target was in a raid vehicle. Even with strangers this was fun, so I know it will be a lot of fun with friends. The regular races are fun and challenging, the maps are of a nice design, but if you are someone who doesn't like racing with traffic around, you may want to only race when it is an evening time. Yes, the population follows the time, if it is afternoon or rush hour there will be tons of traffic, if it's night time there will be almost none. I crashed a lot and I feel like I am a good driver in these types of games, trying to avoid crashing is part of the fun though of course.

Other players - For the most part the other players that I ran into were pretty cool. However you always have to beware of those players who are only out to troll you. They will just ram you for no reason and stuff like that. One thing I liked about the game was that it announces who the most wanted player online is. I'm not sure how the servers work for the game, but it's a nice feature to see and maybe even strive for.

Customization - Since it is still beta there wasn't much customization. There were maybe 5-10 choices for visualization except for right and left fenders, also not sure about stickers since I didn't use them. The choices that were there were nice and shows that we have some cool options coming in the future. There were no performance options yet, but you gain some from completing missions that give bonuses and increase your car level.

All in all I think the game looks and feels very promising. With Need for Speed going into the more Realistic/Exotic car with no customization field, this game looks to take its place. The game to me feels like it will be a lot more fun with friends, but can still hold it's own solo or with friends you meet through the game itself.

I definitely recommend this game. I hope you enjoy it and I hope to see you on the track.

In its current state and with the promise of all the additions that will be available at release I will give the game a 7/10 for now. Once the game releases I am sure that will go to between 8-9 in the racing genre.

I am seeing a lot of complaining about the length of the beta. You don't have to pre-purchase. You made the choice to do it, so try to keep complaining to a minimum. Second, there is a way to change the 30FPS problem, you just have to do a bit of research. I didn't do it myself but a streamer that I was watching did, and some in his chat also. Now onto the review.

-------Disclaimer------
This recommendation was written during the 2nd closed beta (25th Aug - 29th Aug)

---------TL;DR---------
My experience with this game has been positive so far. Cars can be customized, PvP races are easy to get into and co-op missions are fun with friends. There are quite a few things to unlock. Exploring and driving through areas is refreshing and the graphics are pretty good. It was fun driving for long distances with my friend and going to new places due to the fact that the driving is satisfying and the environments are eye pleasing.

-----Long Version-----
I am writing this from the perspective of a person who isn't usually interested in racing games. The Crew has piqued my interest and has far exceeded my expectations despite only being in beta.

Good:
- The graphics are pretty good and the environments are pleasing to the eye.

- Im not sure what a driving simulator feels like but, to me, the driving in this game feels very satisfying.

- The world feels populated and alive, and different areas have different traffic density. Eg, less populated areas have less cars passing through. The attention to world detail is great. Occassionally you will see an airplane fly by, or hot air balloons in the distance.(They arent skyboxes) AI NPCs walk around the place (Humans/Animals) and will attempt to evade if you try to ram into them.

- In the open world there are challenges you can complete for car upgrades as well as special car kit parts you can find in order to assemble a special car such as a Hot Rod.

- You notice other players almost everywhere you go. There are notifications on whats happening around you. For example whenever another player is getting chased by the police, you have the option of going to his aid and helping him escape.

- Im not a PvP kind of guy but racing against other players in The Crew was a very good experience (and probably the best way of getting Bucks to buy new cars). Getting into a PvP lobby was extremely easy and seamless. You can join races with your crew as well (although you'll be racing against your friends if thats the case).

- You have the ability to customize the performance and the look on your car. There are quite a lot of options (such as stickers and different car parts) to choose from that will change how your car looks. It adds a nice touch and, to a certain extent, allows you to create a unique look for your car.

Mixed:
- Even though there are multiple radio channels to choose from, the music available still feels limited. Hopefully there will be more tracks during full release.

Bad:
- There are a couple of minor bugs such as the occasional 2-3 second freeze and multi-colored roads in the desert. These will probably be fixed in time for the full release.

- Some quirks with the anti-aliasing and the grainy filter they apply during the night.

- A restart of the game is required whenever you add a new friend to Uplay otherwise you won't be able to join their crew. This is possibly another bug that Ubisoft plans to fix.

----What I Want----
- More areas to explore (The world is already extremely huge, but I like exploring and driving to new areas. Japan/Mexico/Brazil/Argentina would probably be fun to drive in.)

- Oculus Rift support

- More customization options (More stickers, maybe allow us to modify the sticker properties etc)

- More cars

- More music (You can never have enough music)

- The ability to let players draw their own race routes on the map for private races

- More co-op missions and world events
