The Crew 2 allows Ubisoft to have selective amnesia. The Crew 2 acts as if The Crew never happened, or allow it to remember that it even existed. Which, is nothing but great news. So instead of a gritty story about vengeance and undercover cops, we have a live television show that’s broadcast around the world that goes for fun and celebration.
With a year since the original release of The Crew, the game was an ambitious take on the massively-multiplayer open-world driving game. Personally, it failed tonally with its story and with the actual driving, which is undoubtedly the most important aspect of a racing game. Between then and now, that’s been fixed, and The Crew‘s new expansion, Wild Run is about having some real fun while doing some cool things the base game wouldn’t allow. This expansion gives The Crew a boost to its personality, making it almost a necessary addition to The Crew.
