Our X1 videos of The Crew

Our X1 videos of The Crew

Last but not least, the Xbox One version of The Crew finally got to us thanks to the Xbox Network that sent us a code earlier today. As you'll see, there is a bit more aliasing than on PS4 (and a lot more than on PC obviously) but even so, the game still has a lot to offer in terms of pretty landscapes. Ivory Tower's first title is by no means perfect, it could look a lot sharper and have fewer issues, but we can't help but love the long and very atmospheric drives we have experienced since it was released on December 2.

The PS4 beta did not impress.

It's a game we really love for many different reasons, but also one that can frustrate and irritate us like no other. :)

I tried the beta on X1. The driving itself was absolutely no fun to me at all. And driving is the bread and butter of that game.

Genuinely surprising how terrible this looks visually. I know the world is apparently huge, but if this is the price to pay for size, I'd take a small, high quality world instead. This looks like, at best, a launch Xbox 360 game, and that's being generous.

Wow I love it!!!!! Yosemite is so relaxing and amazing!!! I need to get this. Kind of racing game I always wanted.

And who gives a damn about graphics. For it´s scale, I think this looks fantastic. Nothing comes close, when it comes to environment variety.

And the music is great too. :-)

Alzheimer is indeed pretty damaging. :'(

I'm being sarcastic by the way. It's still sad to see that some people have no idea what they're talking about. I'd have said it looks like a CPC game, or maybe that even the original Outrun looked better. :p

No games on 360 come close in terms of traffic density, world variety and details in the environment. It's clearly not the best looking game out there, there are quite a good number of things that it doesn't do right visually, but take a look at the old gen version, it looks nothing like it.

Now I completely understand that you'd prefer a smaller map with better graphics if that's the price to pay, but it would also need less traffic, less wildlife and fewer pedestrians (if not none at all), etc., much like in FH2. It may not mean much to you, but it does to others, me included. :)

It looks so boring :/

The dissapointment could be caused by the extremely beautiful movies they've been showing us for months... and now this... ;)

Thank you Ubisoft for this great game, it's mysteriously underrated, it's obvious Ubisoft didn't bribe the media, the track design is more interesting than many other racing games with a lot of variety, and the original soundtrack in the missions is awesome, i hope there's a DLC with more original soundtracks from the same composer.

I used to like Driveclub, but now it's boring compared to The Crew.

gotta find all the hidden cars, i played the crew on my cousins PS4 and thoroughly enjoyed it so i bought it on PC (i don't have an XB1 or PS4 yet), i don't have a clue what some peoples problem is as from what i saw from the PS4 version at least is that the graphics in those pre release video's is pretty much what you got in the final release, maybe it was just PC footage who knows but one thing i do know is that im not going to be disappointed and neither is anyone else if they actually play it rather than constantly moan about it.
