    What's up, Insiders?

    I've been looking at the Crew for a few months and was unable to get into any of the Beta due to timing and such. My question is if you've played The Crew, what do you think of it?

    I've watched some videos and a Quick Look and some of the game design seems good. They sort of bill it as an MMO even though its more like an instanced co-op game. Still, seems like a good design. Just don't know if I want to drop $60 on it over Steam or on Xbox One if the game falls apart with repetitive racing and gameplay.

    Oh an also, how do the cars handle? Does driving actually seem...fun?

    Add on any other comments for the Crew here if you'd like. I'm curious.

    It's pretty good I got it on PC, just haven't had much time to play since the release. I tried it during the beta and really liked the concept and the mechanics.
    The cars handle like an arcade racer, not too realistic, specially on the collisions.
    Most bad critics come from the way the AI behaves during missions, it seems to be cheating most of the time to give some sort of challenge I guess, it may be a bit too much at first.
    And also the fact that even if it was being billed out as an MMO it falls a little short, it's not really "massive" there's a limit of people per map, so it's more of a seeing people around from time to time rather than continuously, also it's a bit hard to find people for the quick co-op missions, I guess the solution to that is just playing with friends or leveling up.
    It's pretty much one of those games that is not perfect but can be really fun to play if you can cope with those issues. Even if it's not game of the year material it's probably the best of it's kind. If I were you, I'd wait for sales to try it out, or just check green man gaming, they probably have it at a discount.

    Played it and completed it in 2 days. Max level being 50 has its good and bad sides. You finish the game pretty much bang on level 50. It's not that realistic in terms of ai and car speeds. Cop cars in missions can stop instantly from 250mph+ and you cannot move them where as freedrive is almost impossible to not lose the cops. Sometimes you don't even have to move and you lose them somehow. Max players per session is kind of trash but the community is really awesome. I've been drifting in the mountains like most drifters do and people turn their car around and join you on a little cruise. Definitely the best cruising game. I have found that the car specifications aren't really true to the cars performance. But does change depending on car level. Overall 8/10 and is getting updates to add stuff in for people who have bought the game as well as some good DLC's.

    I enjoyed it for the most part, but I found the driving to be darn near impossible using keyboard/mouse. It was a little easier when I plugged in a Sabertooth, but that's not preferred way to play games. The story was decent though, and some of the ideas were pretty good. :)

    I played the Beta on xbone, it was fun. I enjoyed the ability to freely drive from the east coast to the west coast. Good game.

    I've heard good and bad, I personally think it looks like a great concept that will need some fine tuning.
