Graphics aren't anything special, but if I learned anything from Wolfenstein, Horizon Zero Dawn and now Crew is that graphics aren't everything.
What do you mean? HZD looks stunning.
With the Crew, the story really killed it for me and thus I f*cked off with it. Couldn't stand any of the characters.
I mean HZD in the opposite way: It does look incredible but that's it. 99% of HZD players would disagree with my opinion of the game so nevermind
Maybe I'll rant a bit in the Horizon topic when I have time to write it all down.
Story seems to be your typical undercover sh*t but at least the gameplay is interesting. I think the game plays totally fine. Bad story isn't a killer of a racing game, if you ask me. Though I hate the main character's hipster look with a passion.
@B Dawg: Alright, thanks for the info. I don't intend to play this in multiplayer so it's really not a huge problem for me. Always online is a pain in the ass but at least I can pause my game. Right, NFS2015?
Regarding DLC, I bought the ultimate edition for 25 euros. Out of curiousity I checked out the standard DLC prices and can certainly see why people were pissed.
