I really, really wanted to like The Crew, and I did for a time... before Wild Run came out and its major flaws started raring their ugly heads.

If it weren't for the Wild Run expansion, I would probably recommend the game, but the expansion has (In my opinion) stunted players and is subtling suggesting they buy Crew Credits to buy new vehicles and specs for those new vehicles as they are ridiculously expensive, not to mention places "Extreme" limitations on the "Extreme Specs" (Drift, Monster Trucks, Drag).

First off, don't be fooled, when you buy Wild Run, you are paying for the 3 specs and half ♥♥♥♥♥ excuse for some large scale world competition disguised as a motor festival (Think Forza Horizon, except executed in the worse way possible). That's it. In reality, you are really only paying for the 3 specs, as the way the competition is structured prevents you from playing more than 1 track for each new spec every 2 days.
Yes, you read that right, you get 1 track/arena for each new spec every 2 days. The game will not allow you to pick this track, and to top it off, these events have car limitations, preventing you from using a car you may really enjoy or want to level up.

You would think if you can't just play these tracks in the open world or have free choice over doing them in the summit (The world event), it would at least let you play them in PvP lobbies, as the game is really marketed as an MMO Racer. Sorry, not allowed. Be it a bug, or by design, you are not allowed to select the new specs in PvP lobbies. You can use the new Bikes, which is fine and dandy, but honestly, the bikes are nothing more than reskinned cars with grippier handling (They control nothing like a bike should). Let it be noted, that I was trying to play the new specs in both Public and Private PvP lobbies, with people who also own the expansion as well as cars in the new specs.

On top of this is the horrid new loot system, dubbed "Smart Loot". It's very smart, in that it practically prevents you from grinding out high end platinum parts via skills anymore. In fact, level 50 parts can now only be reliably obtained by slowly and painfully grinding story missions, Summit events (More on this below), or PvP races (This being the only viable way to get new parts and still have fun).
On the note of summit events and extreme specs, since you cannot play the extreme specs in PvP, and they cannot be used in Story missions, your only real option for leveling these is the summit events. Which incidentally, as mentioned above, are restrictive on the cars you are allowed to use. For example, the current summit event requires you use a provided car for the drag event, you cannot use your own, period. So how do you level your favorite dragster? Well... the short of it is... you can't. Cause the game literally provides you no way to do so short of aiming for gold parts on straight jumps... make sure you don't get platinum though, because platinum no longer gives you parts, only visual customization, which really helps you beef up your dragster to leave your friends in the dust down the highway.

The long and short of it is the game was enjoyable, I admit that, I played it a lot when it first came out, despite the glitches, the ridiculous AI, and many other quirks. I really, really did want to enjoy it. But since the Wild Run expansion, I have had nothing but bad experiences with the game.
Drifting would be enjoyable if it would allow me to use it for anything but free roam or Summit events, the monster trucks are a novelty (Let it be noted that monster trucks behave like any other low riding car in collisions... you cannot roll over traffic as you would expect from something that totes 10 foot tires), the bikes are just reskinned cars with slightly different physics, and dragsters are entirely useless outside of makeshift drag racing with your friends in free roam.

I have never been so offended by an expansion purchase as I have been with The Wild Run.

For those still being prompted to purchase the dlc in game, even though you already have on steam;

1. Go to library

2. Select The Crew from your games list

3. Right hand side of the screen select CD Key

4. Select Wild Run Uplay activation - copy this key to clipboard

5. Open Uplay aids Launcher

6. Click activate product

7. Get Hepatitis C

8. Paste activation key

9. Wonder why someone would think selling a game on steam then preventing said game from launching from steam was a good idea. You know what I like to acompany my 20gb downloads? MORE BLOATWARE.

10. Why do you keep doing this to yourself?

11. There is no step 11.

Proceed to enjoy The Crew Wild Run while consuming copious amounts of your drug of choice. Maybe it will dull the headache created by thinking too much about what you just went through.

30 euro for DLC is quite a lot, but ok they have added a lot of new stuff and re-worked the game engine. I enjoyed the base game so I bought wild run. In particular looking forward to the motorbikes.

Then I get in (after a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ activation process) and they want more money to buy the new vehicles! 10 euro just for a bike, or for a monster truck kit for a car I already have. I didn't like the micro-transactions in the base game but you can avoid them if you are happy to stick with one car.

Ubisoft really are taking the ♥♥♥♥. I gave you 30 euro for DLC and you want another tenner for one new vehicle. The new cars and bikes were the point of WR, but nope, can't have them.

Buy this if you enjoy wasting money.

Reasons I recommend the Wild Run expansion
1. The Summit events give you a reason to log in everyday.
2. The new specs and mechanics are a welcome addition.
3. New "Free Drive" allows you to make your own custom races.
4. Developers have already announced more content coming such as photo/video mode, more cars, and tuning specs

Other Reviewers Debunked
1.It runs fine on Windows 10 ( I play it on Windows 10 )
2.To activate it you just have to copy your key from steam and put it in uplay
3.The new smart loot system gives you parts based on your current part level. It will either give you a part that is equal to or greater than the part you have equipped (never lower and it doesn't duplicate, like the previous system). This is especially helpful for level 50 players because it's much easier to Platinum 50 a vehicle and get all of the different bonus classes. It also will now give you car parts, paint colors, stickers, and rims as well.
4.I've used all the new classes outside of summit. Dragster is great for jump skills, motorcycles are great for precision skills, and monster trucks are surprisingly great for scramble skills.
5.You don't have to use crew credits to afford the new specs. I've already earned nearly 10 extreme specs just from playing the summit missions. While playing the summit missions you earn "EP" which results in a free extreme spec. Aside from that it's extremely easy to earn cash just from playing the game and sending friends on faction missions (completely automated=free money)

Reasons not to get the Expansion:
1. The game still is plagued with an intermittent stuttering issue. Doesn't make it unplayable but it can be very annoying. It doesn't affect all systems and so far it seems to be mostly with mor high end systems (read the forums if you want more info)
2. The drift spec has a massive learning curve and honestly is pretty much useless for anything else except the summit event and playing around on curvy roads in california. (Some vehicles are better than others)

Hopefully this is helpful. If you're on the fence wait for a sale or watch some gameplay but so far I've already put in over 100 hours since the expansion so I think it's worth the money.

I loved The Crew. A very ingenuitive idea with some great features, an awesome car selection, a fairly decent storyline, and an absolutely massive map that you could drain hundreds of hours exploring. Yes, it was a tad bit glitchy and the AI was horrible, but it was so unique that I found myself enjoying the hell out of it. I sank over 100 hours into it. So when I heard about Wild Run, I was pumped.

What a horribly excecuted letdown of an expansion.

First the positives: the new textures are nice. The re-worked graphics add a small, but appreciated level of beauty to the game that makes the world seem fresh. The addition of weather effects is also nice. While it's disappointing that your cars will function almost exactly the same in pouring rain or blazing sunshine, it's nice to get the occasional change. The new UI is a little bit more subtle as well, which looks better, and while I wish they would have left the little box next to your gps that tells you what area and reigon you're currently in, I liked the changes.

You can get the Subaru BR-Z now. Woo!

The world map also got a little more organized, and the new freedrive race, stunt, and photo modes are clever. I haven't tooled around with the photo mode yet, but the stunt mode is mildly fun, and despite the fact it claims to encourage you to co-operate with other players to accopmlish the stunts, you can do all of it on your own.

The freedrive races are the best new feature. With such an awesome open-world map with so many amazing roads to drive, the fact that you couldn't create your own race course and have the game time you and share it with your friends was a crime. Well they added that feature. It's far from well-executed, as you're limited to a point-to-point race (no option to do a multi-lap circut race) with just 10 checkpoints (including your start and finish lines), and placement via the worldmap is super glitchy. Somehow I've actually managed to place a checkpoint 50 feet in midair above the road I was driving on before. No idea how. You cannot get rid of traffic on the roads you're racing on, which can sometimes be obnoxious if you're trying to make a race that winds through city streets. While I understand the the uniqueness of the challenge it presents, sometimes you just don't want to deal with the idiotic NPC AI changing lanes in front of you, but there isn't an option to turn it off for your race once you complete your course. You also can't save these courses and come back to them later if you want to try to improve your time, and you can't have more than one on the map at any given time, which is a shame because I've made a few different tracks I would love to hang on to and drive over and over again. Like I said, it's nowhere near perfect, but it's a feature that was badly needed, and it's not bad for a first draft.

But that's it. Now for the bad stuff.

For starters, the new classes, Motorcycles, Monster Trucks, Drift Cars, and Drag Racers, are all terrible. Motorcycles drive like slow cars: they're scarcely more agile and you can't fall off by leaning over too far. They're no more challenging to drive than a small car and even less fun. (But hey, you can wheelie! It's something!) Monster trucks bounce around like ping pong balls and have very little actual stunting capability. Plus you can't go out and use them to destroy stuff, like you'd see at Monster Jam. ten-foot tires be damned, you collide with and bounce off of tiny cars in traffic just like you would in a Mini Cooper. Drift cars are an absolute handling mess and it's ridiculously difficult to hold an even slide, plus the game barely teaches you how to do it. Dragsters are stupidly simple in actual races (of which there is like four), but impossible to drive in the open world, as they go flying end over end off a cliff with so much as the slightest bump of your steering. They're completely pointless to try to take a joyride cruise in, so you'll inevitably almost never use it.

Not to mention, for the most part, most of the cars you'd actually want to spec for these new classes don't offer the kits for them. Instead the ones that do offer them are cars you don't want in that class. Monster truck Fiat 500 Abarth, anyone?

As for the existing cars, they changed the physics pertaining to some of the vehicles, and while it does add a touch more of a realistic driving experience for some models, others they've flat out ruined. For example, my LaFerrari, which used to be the quickest-handling, and in my opinion, best car in the game, now handles like a brick with worse turning than many of my raid-spec trucks. It's the second-most expensive car in the game that took me weeks of mission, stunt, and skill grinding and now it drives worse at nearly full upgrades than some of its cheapest do on regular fullstock platforms!

Oh, and then there's the changes to those upgrades. Grinding for platinum parts, which is what so many of my over 100 hours went into, is a thing of the past as the developers instituted a new "smart loot" system, which will reward your platinum-medal stunts, missions, and skills with in-game money, useless stickers and bumper parts, and seemingly anything else OTHER than actual performance-benefitting platinum components used to actually upgrade your car and make it better. Gone are the days of trying to run that speed trap skill just a little bit faster to squeak out a that platinum exhaust part. Now all you get is a sticker for your car and a lot of frustration that you have to spend money to buy your platinum part from the tuner... if it's even available. Bottom line is it's now close to impossible to fully-upgrade a car, which is exactly the opposite of motivating, it made me flat out stop playing.

The big selling point on Wild Run is the new PVP event, known as "The Summit" which takes place once a month. You have to qualify for it, which isn't extraordinarily difficult, but is still tedious. And once you get there, you're limited to what cars you can use for which events, and most of the events don't even actually pit you against any other players at all, other than on the scoreboard. It's completely uninteresting, seems completely pointless, makes the entire faction system all but extinct, and adds little to the actual game experience.

And beyond all of this, you still can't integrate your own music files into the game's radio either. You'd think that should be silly simple, but nope still no option.

This game had so much potential on its release. It wasn't perfect, but it could have been. It was a great first attempt, one to be proud of and rework a few times over for a sequal that would be a game to redefine both the MMO and racing genres. Instead, the developers came out with this steaming pile of clearly-rushed and little-playtested garbage of a DLC. If you want to enjoy this game, you still can. Just don't buy Wild Run. The new cars aren't even really worth it anyway, unless you really want that BR-Z. But even that isn't worth it. So much of what made the game great went completely by the wayside, and now this potentially amazing game is borderline unplayable because of so much unentertaining "PvP" content being shoved down your throat while preventing you from doing what made the game fun in the first place: accruing wealth, buying cars, and upgrading them into savage performance beasts.

If this DLC kills any chance of The Crew being developed for a sequal, I'll be sad, but I'll understand. I know how great this game could have been, and for a little while... it was. But when this is the best the developer can do for a major follow-up DLC, perhaps it shouldn't get a second title. Give the reins to someone else and let them come up with an open-world Racer MMO, and do it properly.

They locked the gear up/down on the controller using the ****** Right stick! THE ♥♥♥♥ING RIGHT STICK! We normal people use the right and left shoulder since the Top Gear! Released in March 27, 1992! I love the game but cannot play because some frecking ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ developer locked the controls on the controller and I cannot change the command.

The Crew is still a great game. I love driving around for hours without any aim. Cruising through a rainy night in Chicago or approaching L.A. at sunset while descending from the mountains is simply fantastic. The game looks awesome. But Wild Run is a completely unnecessary add-on. It adds almost nothing to the game and some of what it adds makes the game worse.

I bought Wild Run because I expected a new story and I wanted to go for some relaxing drift races after a long days work. But there's no story and drifting after work is almost not possible, simply because there are no drift events, only a single training mission if you are lucky.

The map offers four training missions. These four training missions change every two days and can either be a monster truck, a drift or a drag race. But I should not even call it race. It's just for training and if one of the four training missions contains a drift event, which is not always the case, that's all there is. No other drift events anywhere, except for the summit, once per month!

In order to take part in the summit the game expects you to earn medals. It's tedious. If you collected enough medals you are allowed to play the summit at the end of the month. Yes, it's only once per month and I mean real time, not game time. And if you did not collect enough medals you may not participate. So you paid for this stupid extension but you still can't play it! On top of this the summit sucks because you have to play drag, monster truck and drift. And I hate the monster truck events. They feel like an android game made for little kids. It's pathetic.

Adding bikes was a good idea but they don't feel like bikes should. They are more or less cars with bike skins. It's no fun driving them. Bikes are simply not as agile as they should be.

Upgrading your cars without paying real money has become much harder since "Wild Run". That's because the tests now return smart prizes. These so called smart prizes are so smart that they now mostly grant you visuals like new colours for your car or new rims instead of engine upgrades.

All in all, Wild Run is probably the worse extension for a game I have ever experienced. It's such a rip-off it leaves me speechless.

Not worth 30 euros, wait for sale as i did, you just get summit access and few cars which all of this is not worth that much money, besides it gets bored really quickly.

In order to access the Wild Run content you need to copy the Uplay activation key in The Crew's cd keys and paste it into the Uplay launcher. Had a lot of fun driving across the map with the dragster cars in the beta, but something they've done with their physics since then is causing the wheels to get stuck in a never ending spin out, where I barely turn my wheel either direction going 30 mph the car will act as if I were going 350 mph and completely spin out. I can tell when it starts happening because I hear a very quiet peel out noise constantly when driving straight forward, and I have to switch my car then switch back to fix it. Other than that, great DLC.

Really nothing more than a car pack with a bunch of leaderboards attached to it, and there's so much rampant unchecked cheating (billion+ point scores and below 1 second drag racing times) that the leaderboards mean absolutely nothing. Drag and drift cars are basically undrivable outside of their respective events, monster trucks tend to flop all over the place uncontrollably when coming off jumps because the physics isn't really designed for them. Add in that you either have to grind Summit events for hours for a starter kit or pay a half million bucks just to buy one (or buy premium currency of course), and it's really not worth the effort. The motorcycles are actually quite good (shocking, as usually motorcycles shoved into car games handle terribly), and don't cost any more than an equivalent car, but I wouldn't recommend paying $25 for them.

Worst of all, the "smart loot" system the expansion introduced turns upgrading cars into a massive treadmill grind. Instead of getting a guaranteed platinum part when you get a platinum score on a skill, now you get either a part that's only two or three points better than what you have installed already, a random cosmetic part you probably didn't want or, if you're really unlucky, a tiny amount of bucks. Hope you like collecting Rayman stickers, because you'll be getting all of those before you ever get a decent performance upgrade. Unless, of course, you go grind Summit events for hours or buy premium currency.

If this were released as a standalone expansion I wouldn't mind it so much, but given that it instead turns the base game into a painful treadmill and adds very little actual content, I recommend you stay far away from it.

5. YES, there is an premium currency in this game, BUT you can earn it yourself in the summit
6. exotic tune packs shall not be bought for 400k-450k, you can also earn them to get em for FREE (way too easy)
(400k-450k is alot, most cars are cheaper than 333k)

i spent alot hours on this.
