Evolution is more than capable of making a good game obviously, Motorstorm Pacific Rift is still the best racer this gen, I just wish there was another next gen Motorstorm

As much as I love MotorStorm, I have to say Im very happy they are doing Driveclub. As soon as people get a PS4 they can experience a racer with amazing, realistic graphics and the whole team racing aspect sounds cool

pandaboy1311d ago

Yeah but that field of view is horrible. It's like the driver has tunnel vision. They should add in different camera angles.

SHORYUKEN1311d ago

DriveClub is a great alternative for GT6. We all know it gonna take some time before we got another GT game.

I will buy DriveClub day one. It looks great and I hope we will get another Motorstorn soon

All the freaking detail they put into that game. Crap most people won't even see unless there's a photo mode. Suede that actually has directional brush maps???? Come on now.

I wonder if "Cars" has that level of detail. That game looks crazy too.

@SHORYUKEN- GT6 will be out a lot sooner then you think. Like next year sooner.

The second GT on PS systems ie (GT2 and GT4) come out a lot faster based on the engine already being made and finished.

GT6 to come out on PS3 probably next year. (if they stick to Sony tradition LOL)

Motorstorm PR was REALLY fun, thats one of my favorite racers this gen, but I'm just a HUGE GT fan. GT5 was my best racer this whole gen, but it didn't take away anything from Motorstorm, it was a good game.

I'm really, really looking forward to Drive Club!

As much as I hated Pacific Rift, and definitely personally the worst one from the series (one of my only two games I ever sold back to a retailer, I usually keep games), I certainly agree a next gen Motorstorm to kick things off would have been really great.

Needless to say this game looks really interesting, definitely worthy of a launch title.

Blastoise1311d ago

What was wrong with Pacific Rift?

Best in the series for me

Nightfallen1311d ago

I guess after playing the first Motorstorm for the amount of time I did I was expecting something much more.

What took away from my fun factor and overall gameplay was the oversensitive physics that made vehicle handling a pain in the ass.

That was years ago though, I do sometimes feel like I should get another copy and try be more patient with it. I really loved the scenery and huge jumps.

Wow.....for me Pacific Rift is the craziest, most fun, most intense, absolute best arcade racer of all time. It's a shame the online was bit unstable, but it was still playable, just hard to find a good race unless you had a private party. But the game was just amazing. And forget being an "arcade" racer, I think it's one of the best racers, full stop. So far this gen only GT5 was better for me.

I loved Monument Valley (Motorstorm 1 for people who don't know) as well, but it was just one environment basically, as amazingly rendered as it was. But it was the definition of BARE BONES. The game had nothing aside from the amazing racing. Pacific Rift had the same intense racing but was just FULL of great content to unlock, it rewarded your efforts...it just made every single thing better from the first game.....not to mention having probably the best and most varied environments ever showcased in a single racing game, and the graphics were GORGEOUS. Also, it's 2 DLC packs for only $10 a piece gave you a whole new campaign, doubled the already huge number of tracks and added lots of other content as well like cars, new modes, etc....

It's a real shame Motorstorm 3 changed so much. Motorstorm was it's own animal so to speak, it was unlike anything else....then 3 just basically turned into Split Second. It was no longer Motorstorm. A to B racing instead of circuit tracks? Too bad because the customization and online features of Apocalypse are pretty cool. The bigger shame is the PSN hack happened durring Apocalypse's launch, so the game got no press on the Blog, and they didn't do an advertising "relaunch" for the game after PSN was back up and running.

BlmThug1311d ago

I'm already sold on this title :)

abzdine1311d ago

not only Motorstorm is one of the best racing series ever, 3D effect is also one of the best ever seen. 3D Rift is really awesome in 3D!

Drive Club looks gorgeous, and i'm sure it will play well like all Evolution Studios games. Sony are masters of new IP and i cant wait to try Drive Club.

You need a crazy person to make a good car game and that dude who presented it at the meeting looked plenty crazy.

Cupid_Viper_31311d ago

Haha...Funny comment as I thought he was a bit flamboyant as well. (I don't like to call people crazy)
But yeah, it a sad reality that a lot of people who are really good at something tend to be on the excessive side when it comes to that particular thing.

See Michael Jordan with his crazy competitive nature,
See Kaz with the GT Series
See Tiger woods with hookers....ok maybe that's a bad example.

a_bro1311d ago

first rule of the drive club, never talk about the drive club

jp_footy21311d ago

Second rule of the drive club..

ApolloTheBoss1311d ago (Edited 1311d ago )

...Look at rule one.

Riderz13371311d ago

Second rule of the Drive Club...Never talk about Gran Turismo.

stuntman_mike1311d ago

Gran Tourismo never talks about Drive Club, Because Drive Club never Talks about anything, and nobody's got nothing to say about Nothing...!? err what rule were we on?

LiViNgLeGaCY1311d ago

Yes!!!! I agree! I am totally hyped for this game! :D

GiantFriendlyCrab1311d ago (Edited 1311d ago )

i really wanted sandbox motostorm with really dirty mud in ps4 graphics. Maybe this game will have track varieties. But driveclub look really awesome though

grailly1311d ago

I was so dissapointed when I realized evolution was not working on a motorstorm, I hope drive club will have some craziness to it and not just be a driving simulator.
