We previewed The Crew 2 on XB1X

We previewed The Crew 2 on XB1X

As you may know, despite its many shortcomings, we had appreciated The Crew for the sense of freedom it gave and the size of its world, but we were nonetheless a bit wary about the sequel when we found out it would take us back to the US. After playing a preview version of the game on Xbox One X, we can say it's a lot more fun than we expected, with many improvements over the original and a new swap feature which doesn't seem to get old. It doesn't mean the game is perfect by any means, as some will find it too arcadey with all assists on (turning them off makes it way more difficult to handle but we haven't had time to test the handling withtout the driving aids thoroughly). We have brought you back no less than 15 videos recorded on site, so let us know what you think. Sorry we didn't have the time to record an English GSY Offline or to translate our preview article, but we had to make a choice.

Thanks for the great videos. I really enjoyed the first game, despite it flaws but Crew 2 looks alot better and fun. I just hope the handling has been improved.

After Far Cry 5 I realized that Ubisoft can make bad design choices, I wasted $60, I wont buy anything from them, maybe if I find it on sale

Already tried it on PC and I would definitely buy it. Nice and fun arcade with some beautiful views. Of course I would prefer more realistic and complex car handling but still, it definitely enjoyable, for me at least and a few millions players of the original Crew. But hey, haters gonna hate it anyway... ;)

I like the idea behind this game so I really hope they get it right this time. If they take enough inspiration from forza horizon games it could be pretty fun. Graphically it has a nice style.

Did they do a PC beta already? I definitely want to try it.

    Seth @nostradamus: well yeah for good or for bad they went away from initial idea of the series with the last 2 games. (1 Hour ago)
  • Seth
    Seth @GriftGFX: oh lack of content has not been an issue on Ubi's games in a long time. ;p If anything, this time they have improved their side quests. (2 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Seth: how can on come from the pillars of parkour and assassination sneak mission, to barren no platforming dark souls action lite, i can't comprhend. why call a main ass creed anymore, its derivativ (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Seth: If anything I've heard that Odyssey compounds those issues. I've heard plenty of people say that there's TOO MUCH content. (8 Hours ago)
  • Seth
    Seth I'll keep playing once per week, but the Ubi's usual world building, gigantic maps filled with crap is not changed since last gen and is kinda off putting. (9 Hours ago)
  • Seth
    Seth @AndreasZ94: i do like the more responsive controls of the main characters, but the world is lifeless coming from RDR2, horse controls and animations are laughable and generation behind competition. (9 Hours ago)
  • Seth
    Seth @AndreasZ94: I did tried AC odyssey for a few hours. It's weird, that game is extremely pretty (on PC) and i like some of the side quests and the dialogue choices. (9 Hours ago)
