The Crew is certainly an ambitious game with its promise of a digital America to drive across. But it gets the fundamentals of driving wrong, which in a car racing game is a misstep. Its story and environments however also are lacklustre.

Critic Reviews for The Crew
It's a game that requires and occasionally enforces patience, but like all great road trips it's about the journey, not the destination.
One of the most exciting racing game environments for years, unfortunately bound to a slew of dull races and superfluous story.
Take away its vast environment and The Crew is decidedly mediocre. But the enjoyable story and great sense of actually driving, whether alone or solo, means there's plenty of fun to be had all the same.
An odd mix of Test Drive Unlimited, Assassin's Creed, and Destiny. And while the combination is tastier than it sounds it also has an awful lot of lumps in it.
I am nominally interested in all of The Crew's parts, but none of them hold my attention
The Crew has a lot of missions and environments to explore, but there are myriad issues that get in the way of its positive aspects.
The Crew is a vast, expansive driving game that packs a solid story mode and tons of things to do. However, much of its endgame content feels like repetitive filler.
