Review: Speed Crew | Xbox

If you’re a fan of fast-paced cooperative games like Overcooked and Catastronauts, then buckle up, because Speed Crew is about to take you on a wild ride. Developed by Ukraine-based indie studio Wild Fields, this time management game delivers adrenaline-pumping action as you and your crew race against the clock to repair cars and avoid getting flattened in the process.


A Chaotic Journey Through the Ages

Speed Crew kicks off in 1977 and takes you on a journey through the decades, from retro rallies to modern-day championships. The game’s lighthearted storyline, led by the eccentric Dominion Torrento, sets the stage for a series of hilariously chaotic pit crew challenges. With its charming 3D graphics and catchy themed music, Speed Crew delivers a nostalgic trip through racing history that’s sure to put a smile on your face.


Cooperation is Key

Just like in Overcooked, teamwork is essential in Speed Crew. Whether you’re playing locally or online with up to four friends, communication and coordination are the keys to success. As you diagnose and repair vehicles amidst a whirlwind of obstacles, you’ll find yourself relying on your teammates to pass tools, put out fires, and dodge oncoming traffic. It’s a frantic yet satisfying experience that’s guaranteed to keep you on your toes.


A Few Bumps in the Road

While Speed Crew offers plenty of high-speed thrills, it’s not without its minor flaws. The controls, while responsive, can be a bit finicky when it comes to picking up small items, leading to occasional moments of frustration. Additionally, identifying car issues can be challenging at times, especially when colours blend together. However, these issues are minor bumps in an otherwise exhilarating ride.


The Finish Line

Despite its minor flaws, Speed Crew delivers a turbo-charged co-op experience that’s perfect for game nights with friends and family. With its diverse range of challenges, seamless online play, and quirky sense of humour, it’s a game that’s sure to keep you coming back for more. So grab your wrenches, rev up your engines, and get ready for the ride of your life with Speed Crew.
