The Crew Preview – Road Trip through the USA




Stranger in our midst, or much needed change? The fact is that The Crew at first sight, not quite with the rest of the lineup from Ubisoft fit. Where action packed adventure games reign supreme, there remains little attention on a racing game. Moreover, The Crew in a certain way the successor of the nice, but not overly successful Driver: San Francisco, because this is where most of Ubisoft Reflections is to go to work after the last Driver game was completed. The studio behind Test Drive: Unlimited is cooperating. Fine, but the prelude to a Major games? Not directly.
Good debut?

Yet The Crew came out last year with a bang inside. At E3 2013, the game made an impression with a flashy presentation, which, moreover, it soon became clear that it was not all in-game. The Crew Still does, so too it seems that the beta of the racing game is running, it is not unkind in the audiovisual field. The cars sound nice and look good enough, and the same goes for the environments. After all, do not forget that you drive around in a big open world, and that world extends in The Crew of one side of the United States to the other side. Traversing the country is accompanied by changes of environments where you may expect. Especially near the mountains some stunning vistas

That was so, and that is now in beta still does. At E3 last year, however, we stumbled over control of the cars. The car slid to our taste too much on the road and felt more like bricks on wheels than real cars. The Crew will now feel of real cars never approach, and that too, but even for an arcade racer wants to play, it is desirable if the control in a proper way contributes to the playability. Whether it’s a matter of getting used to, or just moderate control was, at E3 the game was barely playable.

It reminds us, in any case already pleased to say that a lot better in order in the beta version, although it is there too to place. A note to So far we only played because two of the five car styles that can be found in the game. How was that again: The Crew cars different ‘packages’ can be fitted that change their performance and appearance completely. So you can get a Raid package on a car to put it with off-road to drive, and there are a total of five different outfits. We played in the beta with cars with Street- and Raid Storage, and the remaining variants can not even try. Already seems to be that fans of too much realism for a rude awakening will come home for all variants; you ride with ease telephone poles knocked, with city cars have much control off-road and damage is slowly restoring itself while driving.
