The Crew Reviews Summary

Summary: 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.

General Information

Available on:PlayStation 4Dec 1, 2014
Xbox OneDec 1, 2014

Developer: Ubisoft Reflections

Publisher: Ubisoft

Genres: Simulation, Racing

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.

One of the most exciting racing game environments for years, unfortunately bound to a slew of dull races and superfluous story.

And the strange thing is, you'll probably want to try it at some point, just to find another excuse to criss-cross the continent absorbing the scenery and the Americana. There's no doubt that a huge part of The Crew's appeal is nostalgia for US road trips, whether previously experienced or just imagined. No game has mined that cultural seam quite so authentically or with such all-encompassing ambition. It's a game that requires and occasionally enforces patience, but like all great road trips it's about the journey, not the destination.

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.

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.
