Upcoming racer The Crew offers more for players than rivals Forza Horizon 2 and Driveclub, according to creative director Julian Gerighty.
More boring activities and terrible physics, yes.
Comes down to gameplay and feel, and The Crew seems to fail at both. It isn't pretty to look at either.
Have you played the second beta or did you just jump on the hate train like pretty much everyone else?
You probably aren't even thinking about Forza are you?? It's ok, I can tell by the name. I think The Crew is the best looking racer coming out, Literally the best looking? no, but i am not a four year old. Shiny shiny graphics aren't the only reason to buy a game. Since when were simulators more fun than arcade racers? Need For Speed Rivals has been the best Racing game since Burnout Paradise (THE best racer of last Gen) and i am still having fun due to it's casual side to racing (Even with the ridiculous, over the top, ham acted, melodramatic storyline. All that Driveclub and Forza have going for themselves is Graphics ad Phsyics, they achieve that by removing the fun, replayable aspects of each game. The Crew's graphical limitations are understandable too due to the sheer size of the map. I cannot wait for the Crew and i wish more people would say "to hell with that, let's have fun" into mind other than thinking of the graphics of a game, we wouldn't have so many 'Destinys' then.
Wooow, you must be joking. The only thing I kind of agree with you in that statement is that Burnout Pardise is the best racing game of last-gen, though I loooove Motorstorm.
i appreciate your opinion but i honestly think forza horzions will be a better game than the crew for many reasons. better physics, better car models. tuning, graphics, dev team etc. don't get me wrong, i'm sure the crew will be fun but i bet it gets solid 7's with reviews. horizons will probably be around 8.5 average i bet. maybe i'll be wrong but thats the way i see it.
Driveclub is an arcade racer. It is made by the people that made Motorstorm, you seem to be confusing it with a sim game.
why all developers/publishers Ive loved are turning into leechers/junk makers? (ubisoft/square enix/activision)
Wait did this dev just compare an open-world ACTION GAME... to a Racer?? lOl why not talk about ALL the other games in its same genre... LMFAO...ohhh can't do that buddy?? and yeah it adds wayyyy more BS activities and bland graphics... lmfao aww the downgrade and meh game and forgettable story/characters
Forza Horizon 2 is the only Driving game pretty much Guaranteed to be at least pretty darn good. The others are unknown a bit, but look promising. Forza has a GREAT track record, so I'm thinking H2 will continue that good reputation.
I donot know much about The Crew's gameplay but damn this game looks last gen to me compared to Driveclub and even Forza Horizon 2 ! http://www.ps4site.com/wp-c...
It doesn't look "last-gen" but yeah, it looks unarguably worse than FH2 and DriveClub. That's the price you have to pay for a huge world like in The Crew.
Lol @EVEN Forza. Just couldn't help yourself.
Its true... it does appear to have a ridiculous over the top story the others don't.
Didn't your parents tell you to pick your fights wisely Julian?.
It doesn't matter , the game is going to bomb so hard. same day as Assassin's Creed Unity and Rogue and halo and one week before FarCry 4 , GTA V and Dragon age.
Ubisoft isn't that stupid. They won't release all those games at the same time. Something will be pushed to 2015. I guarantee it.
Far Cry 4 probably.
crappy graphics, aliasing everywhere oh yeah you guys are top notch. on a positive note, guess whats coming out tomorrow baby?
Horizon 2 demo!? :D
Everything this game has to offer is very low in quality..map is massive but just copy and paste everything pretty much (stretched out). Physics, cars sounds, graphics and handling is joke compared to Forza.
Lol I'm willing to bet money it doesn't review nearly as well as Forza. Although the ability to drive across the country in every state is intriguing.
Not every state, the map also suffers from the same flaw as its Ubi brother Watch Dogs, lifeless worlds. Look at last gens GTA V, with nearly nothing they (Rockstar) created one of the best (if not the best) open worlds to date. Including WD.
Quantity over quality....
It does offer better customization and a massive map but the game has some major issues. Handling is awkward, servers keep dropping(you will be driving within 50 yards of somebody then everyone magically disappears, free roam cops are weak, stupid and are only crown vics while the cops and gang members in missions are insanely aggressive n fast (they drive over 200 mph in these random sedans n catch up to me while im in a race car) but they at least come in a variety of cars n trucks. The biggest issue for me was the civilians. They would constantly make u turns or change lanes right in front of you when you're driving 150+ mph. I did 3 major cross country drives. (NYC to the Flordia Keys, Florida Keys to LA, LA to Seattle) and the AI must have crashed into me at least 20 times. How am I supposed to enjoy cross country trips if I have to worry about the AI making u turns on highways? I was in both pc betas n I was a very disappointed. I hope they add 1 more beta n fix most of these issues before the November release.
Forza Horizon 2 for me :)
I'm skipping The Crew. I like the concept, but not the execution.
I'm with you on that. Perhaps if they make a sequel they'll get things right.
I'll pick it up when it hits $20
Strange really. When I first saw the crew it looked good and would be arcade action type. But the more I've seen of it, the more boring it looks.
From what I've heard from people that got to play the game it was pretty unpolished and the execution was lacking. They should've really delayed this game to next summer for sales reasons and quality reasons.
I think they should delay it and work on the handling and overall quality of the game. I was disappointed by the beta but then again the final version might be better.
I disagree, in my opinion it is the weakest of the bunch the idea is still perfect but the driving, the physics, the sense of speed it has almost none of those. I Dont expect it to run well on my decent PC
So you're judging the physics etc. by watching videos?
I'm guessing you never heard of a beta
@MinaBossT You said "I Dont expect it to run well on my decent PC" which implied you didn't play the beta.
Damn julian! i like you and i'm excited to play the game, but offer more than driveclub and forza? that sound soooooooo cocky! IMO i think all 3 games has something great to offer, depends on a gamers taste. I don't own a xbox one, but forza horizon 2 looking good with the things to do in it, so if you a forza fan, you won't be disappointed. Since i own a PS4, i'm very excited to play driveclub! yeah it don't have open world, but i would careless about it because i'm a fan of both open world and closed circuit racers, so i'm thrilled to play it. The crew, can't wait to try the beta! it'll make my decision if i want to buy it because i had fun with it, or don't because it's not what thought it would be and just stick with driveclub. Stay classy julian, stop being ignorant. Edit: Quote from julian himself 'i'm not being cocky, but we got a very different game from the others' hmmmmm.....
Bought the Xbox one last week for forza horizon 2.
The demo is downloadable today so you will get your first taste of it lol. If you have a 360 I highly recommend the first one as well as Forza 5 for XB1.
I'm pretty sure the demo comes out tomorrow on the 16.
Well, on the title and content, if all of what they're saying is true, then yeah The Crew probably offers more in terms of content. As long as the game is actually gigantically open world and the gameplay is enjoyable, they may get a buyer from me.
It offers more microtransactions that's for sure.
And a season pass to top it off. They should make it appealing by saying we support the game with free cars and events but no, go buy some cars we held back. No buy from me.
FH2 smokes this game. looking forward to playing the FH2 demo tomorrow :)
In sheer size of game world yea . But after playing the most recent beta the game play was very underwhelming.
More than driveclub yes more than horizon 2 hell no
Sorry Ubi but you guys have let me down 3 out of the last 4 games.
Somebody didnt play Rayman Legend nor Child of Light, I see.
Do I need to add I've purchased or played out the last 4? Also not everybody play games like Rayman or Child of Light, my 3 out of 4 were games I've purchased.
Played the beta and I though it was good. Can explore for hours in this huge playground of a map. Graphics don't look terrible as everyone is saying here, but I agree it doesn't look better than Driveclub/Horizon. There is also a lot of customization in The Crew. Also the cars are way overpriced and missions give so little. I'm afraid The Crew might just become boring after exploring the map.
