Have You Played… The Crew?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. The Crew [official site] isn’t a great racing game. The car handling of this open world “MMO racer” isn’t great, there’s UI vomited at you from every corner of the screen, and it launched with so many problems that we never actually gave it a full…

The Perfect Roadtrip Game

I've played a few games about roadtrips recently. It wasn't intentional, though I do love the idea of games about journeys, they all just happened to land in my lap at the same time. First up was Overland, a turn-based tactical post-apocalyptic game about travelling across a bug-infested America. Then there was The Crew, in which I competed with Brendan in a race. That also…

Best Coast: Our Road Trip Across The US In The Crew

The Crew is free this month from Ubisoft, just two years on from its release. Back then it received mixed reviews. But free is free, and the size of the game’s open world – a huge recreation of the United States – is intriguing enough to entice Adam and Brendan to revisit the racer with a challenge in mind. Who can get from East coast…

Feature: The Really Really Not Wild Show

Impressions: The Crew – Wild Run

The Crew has always underwhelmed. Promising a ‘best of’ of the United States, it delivered a game world that didn't feel much bigger than rivals like Fuel. Promising an always-online world of competitive and collaborative racing, in random and bespoke crews, it delivered a broken buggy mess in which on release we never managed to see a single other player in the game world with…

Feature: Burnout Paradise?

Early Impressions: The Crew

Ubisoft's The Crew is now out, via Steam in the US and UPlay and something called "shops" in other parts of the world. Ubisoft, after the PR disaster of trying to impose post-release embargoes on Assassin's Creed: Unity reviews, have taken the rather bold step of informing customers not to trust early reviews. This is because they've withheld review code from journalists until just before…

Hands On: The Crew

The Crew will see players zooming around a huge map of the United States and teaming up with friends for various feats of speed-freakery. We sent Brendan to take an early look at Ubisoft’s ‘MMO racer’. The open-world racer was perfected on PC in 2009. I’ll let John and Jim argue over whether it was Burnout Paradise or Fuel that holds the honour. In terms…

RPS Verdict: E3 2014 Day Zero, Winners And Losers

The triple A team of Alice, Alec and Adam have spent the last 24 hours absorbing every trailer and piece of footage that has emerged from E3. Now they gather together with Graham 'G-Man' Smith to discuss their findings. Does the imminent arrival of a GTA V port please them? Are any of them still wearing socks or has No Man's Sky blown them clean…

Why The Crew Absolutely Depends On Multiplayer

Although everyone likes to throw around genre tags, it's occasionally worth stopping to acknowledge they don't really tell us anything. Take The Crew, Ubisoft's upcoming open-world driving game. 'Open world' in this case means a lot of interconnected roads that have mission boundaries placed atop, a much larger but less sexy version of Burnout's Paradise City. And as for the driving, I can't think of…
