    I'd guess it's not simulator enough to get enough comments on here :-/

    at least drifting through a corner at a 50º angle isn't faster than taking it "normally" (yes, I'm looking at NFS right now)

    If you push the gas, the car moves forward.
    If you press the brake, it slows down.
    If you turn the wheel in one direction, it will go that way.

    So it's got that at least.

    Did they fixed biggest problem which was quite horrible driving/control feel? Even when game is arcadish you can have decent driving feel, like in etc Forza-series. I'm talking now driving with pad.

    The Crew2 version of Laguna Seca is comical.The track is nearly flat & is about 4 x the width of the actual track.
    About the only positive you can take from the game other than the laughs is that some kids will get into this car game & get interested in motor sport & maybe sim racing.

    I played it long enough to unlock the Red Bull 2018 F1 car. It comes complete with horn and handbrake, and the red light at the back shows when you're braking. Don't forget the slick tyres that work on rain and snow!

    P.S. liveries from the community

    Yep, they worked for Ubi on the first and the second game on some 3D car models (like the Abarth 500, Ford Mustang GT 2015, Alfa Romeo Giulia QV or the LaFerrari for example)

    You can see them on the credits of both games.
