The Brief: Need for Speed Rivals vs Forza 5 vs Drive Club

Three racers go head-to-head this holiday season for your next gen dollar. Pixels for Breakfast's resident racer, Marky Mark, takes a closer look at Xbox One launch title Forza 5, the multi platform next-gen Need for Speed Rivals and Ps4 newcomer, Drive Club. (Driveclub, Forza Motorsport 5, Need For Speed: Rivals, PC, PS4, Xbox One)

All look really good, for me it would have to be DriveClub, Forza and then NFS. Oh i need to throw GT6 in there somewhere as well.

You will both only get accused of being fanboys for that, its not hard to pick it over forza or NFS imo They put a lot more effort into drive club than the other devs put into the other 2 games it seems.

It was never meant as a fanboy comment, just my personal preference.
Quite happy for the xbox guys to have thier own preferences.

It's not until next year, but I would probably put The Crew above the rest. That looks a lot more fun to me.

That said, I will be trying DriveClub for sure.

With my money on the line though, The Crew looks like it would be more up my alley.

Now THIS is a preview I can be okay with. Didn't really flesh out the negatives too much, but definitely emphasized the things that people looking for racers want to know.

There are a LOT of people that need to take notes.

The best thing to do in a preview is to not be too negative, given the fact that it's a very brief hands-on time period. If nothing else, I was impressed by all three! But thank you for the feedback, it's much appreciated.

NFS impress me the most, i stop reading there
MadSientist89  +   662d ago
all three will be great games

i dont understand why it needs to be either or.

NFS is multiplat - everyone can get it.
the GT fans will have that for their Playstations
the forza fans will have that for xbox.

every game has its positives and negatives.
every game is better based on INDIVIDUAL preference. your opinion doesn't mean more than the guy next to you and vice versa. if both of you are playing different games and having equal amount of fun, whats the problem?

That's a very fair point, which is why the last paragraph of this article sums it up in a similar way. My personal opinion doesn't have to be agreed with, it's simply my opinion. We all have different likes and dislikes after all.

Why would he use motion controls when playing Driveclub?
kartanym  +   661d ago
Largely to see what it's like. It's ... okay.

I've played Need for Speed: Most Wanted but I'm not sure if I will like Rivals. I'm getting Forza digital and NFS physical. Only getting NFS bc i got it for $51, so when i resell it i wont lose much. Just not sure I will like police chases again.

Gran turismo 6 over all these, and project cars over the crew next year

Driveclub has me the most excited, it's the only next gen racer that I feel is doing something different.The only game similar to it is The Crew but it's not a launch title. Not to mention Evolution studio promises that if they dont hit 60fps by launch, they will continue to work on it post launch and update the game through patches.

I can't wait to create my own club and burn some rubber. Not to mention the night time races look likre something out of a movie.
