DriveClub Vs. Project Cars PS4 Screenshot Comparison: Which One Looks Better?

In a year where Need for Speed is on vacation, you’d think the way would be clear for Evolution Studios’ DriveClub for the PlayStation 4 to reign supreme when it releases in October. However, it faces stiff competition from Slightly Mad Studios’ Project CARS which will be released for the PS4 and Xbox One (along with other platforms) in November. It’s extremely hard to ignore the latter especially given its visual fidelity – that’s why we’ve composed a screenshot comparison of both games to find out which one looks better.

Driveclub looks much better especially the environments but the trade off is it's 30fps which I'm ok with. People seem to forget Forza Horizon was 30fps and it played just fine.

killzone6191348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

dont attempt to drag down forza series. forza 5 is a true racer should be.

georgeenoob1348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

It's also a launch title. Pretty impressive.

Ghost_of_Tsushima1348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )


Let me say it again "Forza Horizon is 30fps" was it a good game and fun to play? Yes. Driveclub should be no different. Yes Forza 5 is 60fps with downgrades.

Evolution Studios could do the same with Driveclub and downgrade it to achieve 60fps but they're smart and instead just keep improving the already amazing visuals. I like 60fps but I think people are obsessing to much over it this gen.

MasterCornholio1348d ago

Learn to read you two.

He said Forza Horizon which isn't Forza 5.

Tsk tsk tsk I guess some Xbox One fans hate Drive club due to how good it looks.

Ron_Danger1348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

I didn't realize that there were so many Forza pics being compared in this article...

Oh wait, this is Drive Club vs Project Cars comparison article.

So why are you MS fanboys here bringing up Forza? Are you guys afraid that Forza isn't gonna stay relevant? You know if you were confident in the games you support, you'd let them "talk" for themselves instead of trying to convince everyone.

HaveAsandwich1348d ago

forza 5 only runs at 60 fps because there's nothing to it.

scott1821348d ago

Drive club definitely looks to be the most impressive racer to date on consoles. Such a graphical powerhouse. The eye candy has just not been seen in other racers on consoles. Love it.

BadlyPackedKeebab1348d ago

I am a massive Forza fan (disclaimer I have owned both systems since ps2 and xbox days) but ill admit that Forza 5 is graphically simple, that was the price for 60fps 1080p

Its so good to play though I can forgive it. My only real gripe is the aliasing. you can see how the game would have looked in photo mode. When you move the camera the aliasing is terrible, then as it stands still and the picture doesnt need to be as smooth it kicks the propper AA in and gives you a lovely smooth image. Then once you move the cam again the AA switches off.

This might just be something geeks like me notice....

MysticStrummer1348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

Forza 5's downgrades drag down the Forza series, yet they are also the reason it's 60fps. Less content too… like a true next gen racer should have…?

OT - Both look great, but it's hard to tell a difference when the pics aren't showing the same conditions, mainly time of day (lighting).

Iceman X1348d ago

Really?? Forza 4 had 44 tracks Forza 5 had 18 tracks, Forza 4 had 500 cars Forza 5 had 250 and other 250 dlc only. Now you have to pay for night/weather racing as dlc. Buddy i think Forza already drug themselves down lol. GT6 on the other hand 78 tracks night/weather racing, rally,nascar racing, 1500 cars, all dlc cars free. Well yeah Forza you say lol, yes i agree Forza is quit the joke lol. Thay had to cut more than 50% of the game to get 60 fps LMAO

agame9141348d ago

yea i have forza 5 looks great with all those jaggies

Rimeskeem1348d ago

Didn't it get graphically downgraded?

mikeslemonade1348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

Driveclub wins because why would you want to play a racing sim when you can go out and drive. Atleast in Driveclub I assume you can crash cars like in Motorstorm.

Anyway sims are boring unless you talking about the NBA, NFL, or Boxing.

hellzsupernova1348d ago

featuring next gen graphics like cardboard crowd! (unlike the demo they showed) and True lighting whci hturn out to be a lie as well....umm well they released it right? that makes it good right? OHHHHH Adam Sessler gave it 10/10 THAT MUST MEAN IT IS PERFECT!!! or the check cleared how the hell does that downgrade of tracks, cars and graphics get a free pass

64commando1348d ago

Forza had to cut a lot in the visuals department in order to get 60fps which didn't change the game that much. the director of Drive Club has said that they are attempting to make the best looking racing game of all time rather than hit 60 fps

marcofdeath1348d ago

The_Infected + 7h ago | Well said

"Let me say it again "Forza Horizon is 30fps" was it a good game and fun to play? Yes. Driveclub should be no different. Yes Forza 5 is 60fps with downgrades."

And only 90% of the GPU.

showtimefolks1348d ago


first of all he said forza horizon. 60FPS for Forza 5 but every less than forza 4, how come? Forza 5 has less than half the content of forza 4

also the season pass costs as much as the game itself. so to get the complete game either wait another year or so to get the GOTY edition or pay $110 plus for somewhat of a complete experience

foza 5 SIM

drive club mixture of both like forza horizon which ran 30FPS and was a lot of fun. stop hating

your one bubble tells how your statements shouldn't be taken serious what so ever

-CraZed-1348d ago

It also relied on baked in lighting effects, no day/night cycles, poor environmental textures (that crowd looked like it was from PS2 days), suffered from pop-in and was given a downgrade in graphic fidelity to make that happen.

By far project cars is a better looking game. Forza shouldn't even be in this conversation, seeing as it was a launch title that will be a year old by the time these two launch.

MysticStrummer1348d ago

It looked old when it released.

Project Cars on PC might be clearly better looking, but that's not what I saw in these PS4 shots. They looked very similar, though without more comparable lighting conditions it's hard to say.

orakle441348d ago

yep, not really sure what people are seeing here, project cars looks far superior.

scott1821348d ago


Dang, Drive Club takes the crown big time. I think the big 2 racers are both gonna be great though.

Ghost_of_Tsushima1348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )


How about comparison shots of each game "running on PS4." Driveclub looks amazing. Like I said the environments in Driveclub are second to none. Either way PS4 owners get to enjoy both racers but IMO Driveclub still looks better overall.

hellzsupernova1348d ago

on pc project cars is going to kill it but ill give it to Driveclub on ps4 and they should be better cause they have had more time, however project cars gets my money cause im a pc gamer now

Future_20151348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

I actually couldnt care, my hardware allows me to play project cars at max settings at 1440p at 60fps on the pre alpha and i play crysis 3 maxed out and i have to say project cars is right up there even at the pre alpha stage which is quite impressive

Ghost_of_Tsushima1348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

Yea because just resolution and frames per second make a game right? /s

heisenberguk1348d ago

And you think we care about how big your peni er your set up is?

AndrewLB1348d ago

Infected- Isn't that the same argument the PS4 fanboys have been using against the Xbone'ers for almost 6 months now?


starchild1348d ago


They certainly make a game look and play better. Anti-aliasing, too, makes a big difference to me to how good a game looks. You can have all the fancy shaders, high res textures and amazing effects you want, but if the game has crawling jaggies everywhere it will never look very good to me.

elhebbo161348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

@The_infected if you believe resolution and FPS dont play a part in visuals and immersions that you are sorely mistaken.

saint_seya1348d ago

WOW dude thats so lame, only 1440p and 60fps? i wonder how u can play so low graphics when you could be doing 4k 120fps.. guess i actually you should get ride of that old computer/screen..
Guess i couldnt care less about that lame settings when i can play more than 2 times your fps's and way higher resolution...
If you are going to brag of something, at least be sure you got the best out there..

tee_bag2421348d ago

Nice.. I wouldnt play any game..especially a racer at less than matter how good it looked.


Wow go back to school. Your grammar sucks so bad I can't take your dribble seriously.

saint_seya1348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

"Wow go back to school. Your grammar sucks so bad I can't take your dribble seriously. "
"Wow go back to school. Your grammar sucks so bad, I can't take your dribble seriously" (There is fixed for you).
And you complain of my grammar.. at least i can tell english isnt my first lenguage.. What's your excuse?
There i fixed it for you.. go to school, then talk to me again :)

Angeljuice1347d ago

Way off topic Future, can you read? 95% of the comments here are off topic (I've never used so many downvote bubbles).

Look at the road textures in the first set of pics, DriveClub is far more detailed. Project Cars looks great (on par) with regard to the cars themselves, but DriveClub's environments win hands-down.

Leave it to FailingBolt to use images of the PC VERSION of Project Cars in a comparison with a PS4 game. Good lord...

AndrewLB1348d ago

Those are PS4 screenshots of Project Cars. Just look at the image metadata.

orakle441348d ago

Those are PS4 screen captures........

Dynasty20211348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

30 FPS is fine, for sure.

If you're stuck in the early 2000s.

Next-gen should be 60 FPS in every game. Any excuse is exactly that, and anything less should not be accepted at all.

I swear, if you guys actually see a game at 100+ FPS running on a 120hz monitor, 30 FPS would make you sick.

The problem is that MOST console owners don't know any different.

And don't give the "no difference between 60hz and 120hz" response, because then you're just a moron.

windblowsagain1348d ago

So NFS RIVALS which is 30fps on all platforms is not next gen?

Plays awesome and very smooth and it's an arcade game like DRIVECLUB.

Also Driveclub actually runs @ 45-50fps unlocked, but is locked at 30fps with v-sync and aa engaged.

hellzsupernova1348d ago

well Driveclub should look better it has 50 cars and 55 tracks. (which I am fine with because I only want to drive the best cars in the world) So they are lasaer focused on a small selection rather then a large pool.

Project Car FTW hands down...But even better PC is twice as nice.

ovnipc1348d ago

Forza 5 its good but its missing some stuff, what I like about dc weather change, night driving, snow thats so cool. For a new racing game looks really good, you cant compared a new racing game studio with a studio making games for years. Dc will be awesome. Thats my opinion like it or not.

HammerKong1347d ago

man go and check ur eyes ,u are preffering driveclub becasue u are just a fanboy ,i'an saying drivelub is looking bad,it is looking the most amazing exclusive racer,but project cars are having loot better fields of view and most detailed cars and i know that these pics are from pc ,but we are not discussing here about systems and main motive is to find out which one is better and my bet is project cars in terms of graphics but driveclub is touching it a bit.

Comparing two completely different shots isn't exactly ideal

gameseveryday1348d ago

It's not necessarily a head-to-head since we'll only find out about the full extent of the visual details when both games are out and running side-by-side.

That's from the article.

Qrphe1348d ago

You've gotta get hits somehow

frostypants1348d ago

These tards just crap out whatever comes out of their brains when they wake up and toss it out there as a "story". GamingBolt needs to be banned from N4G.

barb_wire1348d ago

Both look damn fine to me.. wish I had a PS4 so I could play them when they're released.

LordMaim1348d ago

They both look pretty amazing. Can't wait to try out the demo.

Masterh0ppa1348d ago

cars in pc look better.. but don't come close to forza..

Masterh0ppa1348d ago

a joke? Dude have you seen the cars in forza 5? They look perfect! these two games can't compete with that.

Ron_Danger1348d ago

Maybe he's talking about the version of Forza 5 that was running on PC's at last years E3 before all the visual downgrades for the actual retail version.

Tempest3171348d ago

Has to be a joke...or hes never seen any racer but forza. The premium cars on gt5/6 models look almost as good on last gen (idk what forza looks like on 360, but I imagine its also almost as good. Forza 5 is wildly unimpressive in the graphics (still enjoy the hell out of it). To say that these 2 games cant compete is one of the most obscene comments ive heard recently lol

Allsystemgamer1348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

Lol someone is delusional. I have played forza 5 and it does not look that good. Jaggies everywhere. Cardboard cut outs everywhere. The lighting is just ugly. It does not look that good at all

ScareFactor1348d ago

He means the "Cars" which in Forza 5 look amazing. The environment and lighting aren't that great but the detail in the cars is stunning

iistuii1348d ago

It has some jaggies i agree, but if you want to see jaggies go on NFS Rivals. Thats jaggie city & is only 30fps. Put Forza 5 on after NFS & you'll realize how well they did for a launch title.

iistuii1348d ago

Ive just been on IGN & i'm afraid those jaggies are everywhere in Driveclub. Look at the telegraph poles, the awnings the white lines on the side of the road. OK, they have time to add AA, but i remember thinking the same with early Forza 5 video's & they didn't change.

SoapShoes1348d ago

^ Yeah, suuure... Lets just judge from low quality video that hasbeen compressed.

Codey471348d ago

@ Scarefactor

" He means the "Cars" which in Forza 5 look amazing. The environment and lighting aren't that great but the detail in the cars is stunning "

In other words....... body like Baywatch face like Crimewatch.

Tempest3171348d ago

Honestly any racing game is allowed to have aliasing...when youre moving (as is 99.999999% of any racing game) its really not noticeable. I never thought of nfs as being "jaggie city", because I didnt notice it moving at 100+ mph lol

Parhelion691348d ago

I think he means Autovista mode. And yeah, cars do look spectacular over there (using the x1 complete power, to render the cars and background, without any game logic, physics, etc)

Realtime though, is another story. Forza 5 looks really bad at times...
