The Crew 2
Summary: A strange follow-up to Ubisoft's open world driving franchise, The Crew 2 lacks many features that generally come standard with the genre. The scenery may be nice, but this one is lacking a lot under the hood.
Top Critic Average
Despite the flashy boats and planes, this sequel to the ambitious open-world racing game is underdeveloped where it counts.
The Crew 2 is big, confident, and stuffed with arcade racing action but it's an uneven and unfinished package.
An impressively huge, occasionally beautiful map doesn't make up for mediocre driving and a lack of multiplayer options.
Some strange design decisions create a racing sequel that's arguably worse than the original, and only time will tell whether it recovers from its poor start.
A successful sequel where it counts the most, only a few potholes slow The Crew 2 down in its drive to become the ultimate road trip.
Other than brief moments, no part of The Crew 2 is captivating enough, including the rubberband-based gameplay, the events themselves, and the overall setup of the open world
The Crew 2 is an uncanny mess and I'm enjoying it anyway
As far as its single-player experience goes, Ubisoft's open-world driving game is fun, varied, and accessible.
The Crew 2 offers players the chance to drive everything with a motor across a shrunken version of the United States. It provides a fun driving experience and looks stunning, but ultimately it lacks focus from being pulled in too many directions. There are bright spots here and there, like Monster Truck trick courses or Rally Cross events, but The Crew 2 falters in equal measure.
