The game ran awful on my i7 GTX 960 (above reccomended spec if you check below). I find this typical of Ubisoft deceiving thier audience in any way they can to grab a buck. They used to be my favorite game dev's back in the day for Ghost Recon and Splinter Cell..

But anyway not to get side tracked the game is broken and never runs smooth and now it has stopped working completely with customer support having this massive list of tasks to do just to TRY and get it to work.

0/10 Avoid this broken game and Ubisoft like the plague.. Oh ive not even got onto Uplay yet... but thats another day

One of the best games I ever played and I don't understand why everyone is so negative. Maybe you just should buy The Crew first and see if you lke it. Don't buy everything at the same time. Maybe 30€ is a little bit too much but when you've got the complete edition you don't have to buy anything (except crew credits, but it's optional). So I highly recommend this game. Highly addictive!

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.

***WARNING USES CRAP UBISOFT DRM UPLAY***

This game is just a big disapointment, idea was good but execution was terrible.

This is a driving game and driving should be the fun part of it right?

Wrong all the cars have the same bland feel to them and don't have any remote realistic feel to them at all.

The game made me waste like an hour in the prologe before I could even do any thing I can tell you after that hour I was already done with this ♥♥♥♥ game. There is no multiplayer race menu to find races.. which brings me to. MENU NAVIGATION IS TERRIBLE.. like remember those bad 90s game menus? This game is on par with that. Game feels like a play4free game they decided to charge money for.

All there was a lot of false advertising about The Wild Run DLC, People who bought the season pass DID NOT GET THE LAST DLC.. TOTAL SCAM BY UBISOFT!!!

Speaking of Wild Run this dlc seemed to break this game compared to what it was before.

Speaking of TERRIBLE.. This game has SERIOUS STUTTER AND VIDEO CHOPPINESS. before you accuse me of having a bad computer I'm getting 100+ fps maxed out with a ssd and 144hz monitor. This game has that ♥♥♥♥ console port feel to it in everything you do. FEELS LIKE A TERRIBLE CONSOLE PORT! UNOPTIMIZED GARBAGE!!!

To put the icing on the game this game uses CRAP UBISOFT UPLAY DRM!!!

SCREW YOU UBISOFT! STEAM IS DRM IN OF ITSELF!!!!!

YES I AM REQUESTING A REFUND ON THIS CRAP GAME!!!

0/10 FAIL

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.

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.

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.

It's ♥♥♥♥

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.

UPDATE: Since this update this game is full of game-breaking bugs, do not buy. The game is full of hackers, which is nothing done against--like the game-breaking bugs.

The bad:
Launched full with bugs as expected from Ubisoft. Ubisoft titles have a bad rep with me, this game is no exception. It's a great concept but there is close to NO support, full of bugs still there from the start, no dev involvement, so beware.

This "expansion" is really a DLC--especially considering the graphics and new licensed cars are free for all with the base game. So what's added with this expansion--well:
6 bikes
Monster, Drag, Drift specs
Summit events

Is it worth 29.99eur, hell no, especially when Americans are paying 24.99USD meanwhile people in the UK have to pay a whopping 24.99GBP (38usd)--you do the math. This is at best worth 10eur/15usd, considering the above.

The good:
However if you have the money--like me, and you're into car games, than this is as good as it gets for now. The game has great graphics now, not perfect. But he, it's a console game, so what'd you expect anyway. This game offers hundreds of hours of fun, and for those with a life they've added crew-credits with which you can buy any car/bike/spec. Just keep in mind that it is a Ubisoft title--no costumer support, horrible "no-life" forum mods, and bugs--not to many but from time to time--o and those are never fixed.

Important: You need to copy the code you get from steam to uPlay in order to activate this expansion!

So, this game is actually getting better and better :D

By getting this expansion you will get:
Access to buy & drive bike
Extreme spec (Monster, Drift and Drag)
Access to Summit event
Access to free drive challenges and free drive stunts
Supporting Invory Tower & Ubisoft

Also with the free update come in the base game you will get:
New Vehicles
Graphic Update (Look more realist overall)
New Weather system with different presets on the sky, clouds, rain, wind and fog (The weather will have different levels of intensity and effects, and will be different in each region of the game)
Sound improved
Handling of cars improved

So, why don't we support Ivory Tower & Ubisoft for their hardwork? ;)

Interesting Note:

As new vehicles are purchasable with bucks (in-game currency) without the expansion
People said that they won't purchase the expansion simply because they can get everything they want in the free update
But...
If Ivory Tower makes all the vehicles exclusive to the expansion owner
People will become mad and say "**** UBISOFT YOU GREEDY PIECE OF **** GO **** YOURSELF"

Poor Ivory Tower. Ubisoft bad reputation just put a bad image on the game while the game is actually pretty fun :(
