So long The Crew

So long The Crew

The second PC beta of The Crew is now officially over, which means our next hands-on will be on consoles in late September for another closed beta. Yesterday evening, we went for a 3 hour drive, leaving the suburban New York area to get to Miami via Cap Canaveral, then headed straight for the Everglades before deciding to go to Dallas. We eventually ended up at Pikes Peak for a beautiful sunrise and then parted ways to get some sleep as it was getting kind of late. Not everything was perfect technically speaking, but despite the few hiccups, boredom was nowhere to be found. We spent time watching the beautiful scenery, having fun with the locals sometimes, or simply chatting. Here is a very short summary of what we saw last night, we couldn't put everything in there, but hopefully you'll enjoy the ride anyway. The music we've added may not be the most appropriate one as we never set wheel in Alabama, but it suits the mood perfectly so we figured you wouldn't mind.

Sweet Ride

I've played the beta for the second time and it was much, much better than the first time. Still feel like the handling needs some work, but it's not as bad as handling in most open world games.

This is a fantastic year for racing games with The Crew, Forza Horizon 2, DriveClub and Project CARS, Mario Kart 8, Grid: Autosport and etc.

Music made that video unwatchable. Sorry.

The handling is pretty good with a wheel, I'd definitely recommend one for The Crew

What specs did you run this on? My card did not deal very well with it.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks just started playing the Forest today and sunk too much time with my buddy. WOOF that game is fun (8 minutes ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 New enemy types, namely the Snatchers, Pouncers, and Carriers were aggressively unfun to fight. Still a good game, not a great game by any means. 7/10 (1 Hour ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 The new characters mostly uninteresting and their chatter during the game annoying at times. Marcus/Cole/Baird was very fun. Giant robots super fun. Wind mechanic way overused. (1 Hour ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 Beat Gears 4 last night. TLDR review: Interesting story that they fail to give a satisfying ending (or any ending at all to). Hit and miss graphics, mostly hit. Weak beginning, and super weak end. (1 Hour ago)

    droezelke @KORNdog: It depends on how they define succes. If it's viewers, then it's a succes. If it's no increase in subscriptions, then it's not. (2 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus preordered snes mini. just waiting for the order not to be honored. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @droezelke: not in regards to costs. If it was a success, they wouldn't have cancelled it now would they. Lol. (3 Hours ago)
