As always with Ubisoft. pictures and current video footage does not represent actual gameplay or graphical fidelity of the game (If any)

Ubisoft will downgrade the graphics before they launch the game

I tried The Crew 1 on a free weekend once. Worst AAA racing game I have ever played.

I had the same reaction to The Crew 2's announcement as I did to The Division 2..why another one?

No, it's Ubisoft's verion of Test Drive: Unlimited. IgoryTower is literally ex Eden Games, creators of TDU. Unfortunately Ubi is as much greedy as Atari was, ruining what could be a great game. The only solace is that TDU gave birth to Forza Horizon by showing the need of such open-world racing coolness.

Indeed. I had the opportunity to try the closed alpha at one of my friends and it's graphically a piece of crap. 30 or 60fps cap, poor quality texturesm etc...

I had shittons of time in TDU and TDU2, both were buggy and unfinished, full of missing features, and messed up ones whose worked perfectly in the previous game. The Crew topped that by far. Useless, badly done eyecandy features, meaningless, nonsense tuning system, literally '90s rearview mirrors (C2 does made some improvements on that, but still useless), and so on...

We already had open world racing right? Done by more than one NFS. Which really is a way better series, even if made by EA and pure arcade. The Crew was the biggest pile of shit I have played in recent years.

Gonna have to agree to disagree on that point. I can't stand any of the new NFS games but I put >100 hours into The Crew. What makes The Crew fantastic is the ability to drop in and drop out with other players. Less than 1% of the game has to be done single player.

At least The Crew doesn't literally have an in-game casino like TDU2 did.

A friend and I got The Crew when they offered it for free and we both woulnd up putting over 100 hours into it as well, even grabbing the DLCs. Like you said, the best part about it was being able to drop in and out at any time and playing almost the whole game with other people. As an arcade-racer, it was a ton of fun. I'll most likely grab The Crew 2 at some point.

As for Need for Speed, the last one I really enjoyed was Most Wanted (2012). Since then they've made questionable decisions which each new iteration, like tying upgrades to "speed cards" or capping the game at 30fps like in Rivals (and tying the physics engine to it...ugh).

But hey, it's super duper cool to hate on anything made by Ubisoft or EA...

AFAIK, there were no open-world racing bevore TDU, and the only semi-sim on that matter is Forza. NFS is pure arcade since years and TheCrew is way too off the sim line to be enjoyable. It is literally ridiculous in many occasions.
