Got my key as well. May be worthwhile JC and Monkey registering their interest to see if they get a key before Thursday...?

Played 40 minutes or so - I'm bloody impressed so far.

Looks great! Great fun!
Open World, loads of different kinds of driving, story (usual stuff but propels you through the game)
Looking forward to more ...

Played some more last night.

Really pleased that there's a decent cockpit view.

Saw Birdy show up on my map - so the multiplayer aspect is certainly intriguing...

It takes 90 minutes to drive from coast to coast in-game. The single-player campaign is 20 hours long, and entails infiltrating criminal groups. Missions can be played alone, with friends, or with online co-op matchmaking. The multiplayer mode lets players create teams to compete online in races and other gametypes. There are no in-game loading screens or pauses. Players can also build cars with a tie-in app for iOS and Android.

The Crew creative director Julian Gerighty has called the game a role-playing game with large-scale multiplayer elements. The multiplayer is not separate from the single-player. Players can form "crews" to race together or against ghost records.

Had a very small session Thursday night before bed, and i was reasonably impressed. LOVE the idea of the game and how it is developing. I felt the games physics and handling were VERY forgiving, in terms of if i plowed into a load of impact barrels, it didn't even affect my speed. I know the game is an arcade racer (similar to need for speed) but i didn't feel i had to really think about how i was driving the car.

But the maps feel huge, and if it takes 90 minutes to drive coast to coast, then that's mega. I saw Extreme on my map so i instantly drove over 5 minutes to Detroit to find him. Didn't in the end but i could see him on the map...very interesting.

Will probably get this i reckon, more for the multiplayer than the main game.
