GSY Video PC PS4 Xbox One

While we were at Ubisoft yesterday, we were also able to approach the September update of The Crew 2, which will be free for all and will include a new category of vehicle, some new events and the long awaited PvP mode. We had a nice chat with Studio manager Ahmed Boukhelifa when we were playing, which might explain why we struggled so much to reach the podium.
Version played: Xbox One X.

That looks pretty good! Being a Ubisoft title though means that this game wont fully be a good title for another 12-18 months away.

Just like almost all recent online games, unfortunately.

I'm actually more worried about the dumb design decisions the developers made about this game, including retaining a lot of the issues with the first game and also making others even worse, instead of better.

Bug fixing and polish can solve a lot of issues, but the design issues at the core of the experience are much more hard to resolve, even when the developers really want to fix them wholeheartedly, which in this case I doubt they really do.

Not saying I doubt they do because they're bad developers, they aren't. I'm saying it because I believe they like how the game is design wise. It's extremely hard to see the shortcomings of ideas and concepts you have worked so hard for many years.

That's why a fresh perspective or a break from a project is always needed, so that you can see where those are and try to resolve them as best you can. Hopefully there will be a The Crew 3 in the future and the developers will make strides to make a much better game, design wise.

    MrWhite End of debate. RE7 is possibly a truer RE sequel than what 2 even was if you listen to him explaining his motives. (4 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite When you have the original creator coming out saying he wanted to make the first game 1st person because it was the best way to go about it, and then cites Texas Chainsaw Massacre as an inspiration (4 Days ago)

    MrWhite Yeah, that's a great interview, and puts to bed the ridiculous notion that RE7 is somehow not a proper RE game. (4 Days ago)
