Three new videos showing some actual gameplay footage of the upcoming Ubisoft game, The Crew, captured on Playstation 4.
Attached video says, "The Crew PS4 Beta Gameplay Ford Mustang", car in the video is a Camaro lol.
Ack, enough of these 'arcady' racers already. I want to play/watch a racing game with REAL damage. Like if I'm racing online and I get clipped by a guard rail my car will go into a tail spin and could become a complete wreck. On the flip side, there would be penalties/disqualifications applied to a-hole racers that cause accidents to other cars. Sounds pretty extreme, but putting into perspective this gameplay style with a FPS game like Counter Strike, which had an unforgiving damage system that envoked a form of realism and tension never experienced before. Driving games need a much more extreme form of risk/reward to make them more enjoyable to play and/or spectate.
Almost every gameplay video recorded from multiplatform games are from PS4's. That's not good for the X1 nor Microsoft. Microsoft by now must be regretting not using (at least) a better graphics card on the X1 so they could reach that "magic" number (1080p/60fps) more often. As for The Crew, looks average... and I'm really not into MMO's.
I've been playing the crew beta on ps4. its not an attractive game... even on the ps4.
My view on the closed beta. Came to say pretty much the same thing, The Crew does not look like anything special, graphically it sometimes looks last gen, but then again this is only a closed beta, during the cutscenes the game looks good, but gameplay graphics eh could mistake for a last gen game, I think what makes it a current gen game is the scope of the map, which is pretty damn huge. But even putting the graphics aside, I find the game boring, i watched a few cutscenes but quickly got bored and started to skip every one, what i found was a lady would tell you to make your way to a certain waypoint to have a race, i had more fun doing the random missions, of jumping off ramps, and high speed time trials etc This alongside Project Cars and Driveclub were on my 100% to get list, but thank god imo it doesn't look that great, so i get to keep my money. I'm 100% getting Driveclub, still gotta see more of Project Cars on PS4 before buying.
Is it fun though?
They did have a better GPU, but they removed cores to add the eSRAM to try and make up for the DDR3 Bandwidth. I understand why they did it, because they wanted a unified pool of memeory so they could always give and take when either the OS or the games needed it, but it was a bad decision IMO, and they would have been better of with 6GB DDR3 + 2GB GDDR5, and called it a day.
I'm sure Forza horizon 2 has something to do with Xbox users not giving a s***
I was watching a bit of this game earlier through PS4's Twitch. The game looks pretty decent to be fair, I was impressed.
I've been watching vids too, and I don't see anything wrong with it. The graphics in some locations aren't as good as other current-gen racers, but then in other locations it looks amazing. I don't really understand why everyone is so down on this game while foaming at the mouth for DC, FH2 and Project Cars. Those may be better visually, but this looks more fun.
Driver. The second this video started all I could think of was Driver. It looks ok.
I am really not holding out hope that The Crew will be a good game unfortunately... Prove me wrong Ubisoft!
I'm in the Crew beta (didn't even know got the email invite last night) and the game is pretty good, the driving physics are spot on and you can drive pretty much anywhere and over anything and you have your choice of cars for the missions which may be limited by this is just a beta....the more you level up your cars you can unlock and buy new ones in the showroom, you can even test drive them before you make your decision on the new one you want but as far as the tuning and customization aspect i don't know if it's included in the beta (haven't seen anything like that yet). I initially wasn't going to get this game but now i'm having some serious 2nd thoughts about that decision....lol
is it like an mmo, where you'll be driving around and you'll see random players?
Yea you'll see other players driving around, you can invite them to your crew if you want. By the way, after playing for awhile and leveling my car up there is customization in the game and as far is tuning its done for you (you unlock the parts by doing the story and side missions to earn points for them and they're automatically added to the car when it ask if you want the part installed or not).
I've been playing the closed beta of the crew on ps4 as of last night. Its... OK imo. Graphically its not that impressive. the handling seems mildly frustrating and slow... especially for an "arcade" car game. Playing it certainly didn't increase my desire to purchase the game which was pretty low to begin with.
ive been hearing the same thing from people who've tried it. as for the graphics isn't it the whole united states? u can drive open world? so something had to take a hit. as for the handling, yeah people seem to share your same concerns.
graphically the crew seems like the worst of the next gen racers. Im not sure how the hell this game came together. It sounds huge til you actually see the game in motion. I should've known that this would be too good to be true. Because the idea in scope is so large, there would be little attention to detail unless they get Destinys budget. Give me Forza's customization/physics with Driveclubs photo realism and you have probably the best racer for atleast the next 2-3 years. Project Cars looks promising... but its still a bit early
