I didn't love the handling in the first one, but stuck with it cause I enjoyed the open world and RPG-elements and did end up liking it quite a bit.
Based on the beta for this one though I am not sure I would recommend it full price, waiting on a sale (and hopefully improvements along the way) seems the best way to go.The world felt empty, and with almost nothing to do (might just be a beta thing), the driving did not feel that improved to me, the boats/planes felt alright, but didn't really add much "fun factor" (to me), the loot aspect seem like more of an afterthought in this one and the story is somehow way worse than Crew 1.
I really wanted to like it cause I love the idea of an open world racing RPG And Crew 1 had so much potential, but I enjoyed the beta of Crew 2 far less than Crew 1, it was a real bummer. Hopefully Ubisoft do improve it over time as they have done with other titles lately.
My first was WoW, not sure on the exact number now (not played for a while), but it was 2500 hours at one point and probably hasn't gone up too much. A bunch of that was using it as a glorified chat room.
Only other one I probably hit 1000 hours (and way over) in is Hearthstone, but no way to tell there. If you combine all the Monster Hunter games I must have at least a thousand in those as well at this point.
Added everyone I didn't already have as a friend. Playing a bit of MHX pre-Gen release, but might join in for some 4U action as well. When Generations launches I will be playing a ton so up for grouping up as much as possible.
In CEST timezone (Norway), but I often play at weird hours.
Been messing around with the editor for a few hours, man it is hard to make a good level (who knew!). I did finish a fairly basic level playing around with flying that isn't completely awful at least though: AEA0-0000-0018-6E4A. Just a first draft, but I like the potential with using the clouds / clown cars. Also started working on an autoplaying level, but that takes quite some time to get done, not even close to finished yet. Loving the game so can't wait to see what madness people come up with.
@woowookins: The game told me I had unlocked everything and that last row is still empty for me, so I assume it's just a custom row and not anything more to get.
