There are two big racing games coming out this year, The Crew 2 and Forza Horizon 4. The original Crew game was not what people were looking forward to. Cards had clunky mechanics when it came to handling and the graphics weren’t too great either. While people liked the single-player campaign and the open world, it was a decent game at best.
Crew 2 is coming out later this month and it will be fixing all the issues that players had with the original game. Not only that, it also adds other vehicles like boats and planes that were not part of the original game. There was a closed beta for the game and I was one of the players that had the chance to check out the game.
I would say that while the addition of boats and planes is great and you can switch vehicles on the go, it seemed to me that the game was trying to be more like Forza Horizon and was failing to do that. Both games have the popularity scheme, where you need to bring in more followers. In the Crew 2 you are getting followers for yourself but in Forza Horizon 3 you are getting followers for the festival.
This is one of the similarities that I found in both games and while Crew 2 is a better game than the original one, I think that Forza Horizon 3 did everything better. Forza Horizon 4 has now been announced and the new game will be set in Britain. The game will feature a dynamic weather system and changing seasons as well.
Other than that the franchise has a history of getting things right and there are plenty of followers of the game that are going to buy it no matter what you throw at them. You can check out the trailer for the game below.
All things considered, I think it will be Forza Horizon 4 that comes out on top end the end of the day. Let us know what you think about Forza Horizon 4 and The Crew 2 and which game you are more excited about playing in 2018.
