DriveClub vs Forza Horizon 2 Raindrops Comparison: Which One Is More Realistic?

DriveClub and Forza Horizon 2 are two notable exclusives on the rival platforms. Forza Horizon 2 is exclusive to the Xbox One while DriveClub is exclusive to the PlayStation 4. Both of these games look great but in term of realism, which one takes the crown home? (Driveclub, Forza Horizon 2, PS4, Xbox One)

@2pac.I'm sure it looks way better now since it's post E3 weather. http://n4g.com/news/1545753...

haha, the rain dropps on FH2 are just lamelessly sitting on the hood of the car, and on DC the look to be shifting when the car hits hard turns.

we all know its DriveClub....if any thing
i do give credit on
Forza horizon 2 has the best cardboard cut out

I can't believe how it goes from a discussion in one n4g thread to an article. I thought we resolved this in the previous story. DC looks better, and Horizon is an open world driving game, so it obviously wouldn't be on the same level.

@onyoursistersback: I don't see that at all about the shifting rainfall. What it looks like is a dynamic droplet animation overlay on the car and windshield. But, with the turns I've seen on the video, they don't change direction but continue going from the front of the car towards the windshield.

It's definitely more lifelike, but it definitely doesn't look like it's taking on the physical aspect of the car's motion from what I've seen.
deepio  +   106d ago
Whilst I think DC looks better in the comparison shots, I don't think we've seen the same level of rain in FH2. In other words we're talking about heavy rain (DC) vs light rain (FH2). I don't think we've seen heavier rain in FH2 yet.

If you look at the IGN article the dev said "if it’s just light rain the tarmac will just darken slightly" - as we've seen. You'd also expect the rain drops to remain static on the car once the rain has stopped.

Who knows, maybe DC will still look better once we do see the same level of rain, but I'm just saying at the moment, this comparison isn't quite fair.

Instead of racing other cars and worrying about the upcoming turn, I'm going to stop on the road and admire the more realistic rain drops. I'd def buy a racing game based on which has more realistic rain. Racing? Please, that's just stupid. Hopefully we can compare which has more detailed clouds or possibly grass on the side of the road. I'd love a comparison of which game has better tire tread detail.

You should take time to admire the realistic rain, since it effects the way you race... I.e. handling, visability, and AI. Those are important aspects of a racing game, right?

This is where the console wars come into full effect and the losers are really all of them. That's because instead of wanting to enjoy both games they'd rather support one hardware company. That sounds like that company has turned them into slaves by design.

DriveClub looks better, there really is no argument but each game is different in its approach. One is wide open drive anywhere so of course there is going to be some trade-offs that comes with that.

I don't know, but is there varying degrees of weather in Driveclub? Meaning, you have a downpour, light drizzle, hurricane, etc etc. And the topic is "comparing rain drops" not "comparing the strength of the rain." Obviously if it's a downpour your going to drive differently then a drizzle, but the topic was comparing how the drops of rain look.
FamilyGuy  +   105d ago
The audio in DriveClub is a beast as well as the visuals aaaaand on a technical aspect the handling in the rain looks incredibly realistic.

It's a beast from all angles and still made to be more arcade/casual so anyone can enjoy the game.

This is how you set a bar!
MorePowerOfGreen  +   105d ago
"Theres only so much X1 can do"

Like the environmental simulations and almost full simulation of cars handling and physics in a open world plus destructible objects with online multi player?

If drive club was doing what Forza Horizon was doing it would look like a PS3 game. Despite your opinions of visuals DC isn't close to the technical level of FH2. Tuning, painting all parts handling and performing different.

Yes DC looks good for a basic arcade racer. Hell XB1 isn't even using all of its hardware yet, 100% of the Xb1 GPU is just now available for devs but only one CPU core is still being used.

So now we are comparing rainstorm to a sunny day with tiny tiny wetness. Again we're comparing an open world game to a closed tracks racer...and again the only thing that matters on n4g is graphics, unless winning console is not ps4.

Since we have dedicated article comparing raindrops (WTF!):

I'm waiting for the article comparing things that matter which is:

- numbers of cars druing the race (DC - 4 (YES, ONLY FOUR), FH2 - 12 + traffic)
- number of cars (DC-50, FH2 200)
- size of drivable area (DC - small closed tracks, FH2 huge open world)
- customization (DC-NONE, FH2-full customization, tuning, custom decals)
- car damage (DC-NONE, FH2 - costmetic and performance)
- online (DC- standard few players races, FH2 - seamless open world multiplayer exploration, 1000 players car clubs, 700+ events, Drivatars that learn and drive online, when you're offline)
- physics (DC - almost none, cars bouce of the walls, not affected by sings etc, FH2 - full physics with possibility to do barrel roll etc.

I guess this all does not matter if you can get some post-release, better raindrops. Need to start petition to turn10 to remove 18 cars from screen so it will be on par with DCs 4 cars as a tradeoff for raindrops upgrade. Totally worth it.

BISHOP-BRASIL  +   105d ago
@cgoodno

You would need a really tight turn course (hard drifting or actually spinning out of control) to make droplets travel noticeably perdicular over the hood and windshield and even so it would only last a second or so... Afterall on pretty much any curve technique you are still going much faster forward than sideways.

@deepio

Just because the rain stopped, doesn't mean droplets stand still on your car. You are still moving forward, creating friction with air that pushs the water back. In fact, this is very visible, didn't you ever drove in the rain?
Hercules189  +   105d ago
So when Ryse looked lots better than Killzone, it was because Killzone is a little bit more open. but when we're comparing a traditional racer that is basically a last gen racing game made for next gen compared to a completely wide open game that lets you drive between two different coutries and when Drive Club looks better its because the xbox one cant handle more, lol nice try trolls.

Wrong...it clearly says 12 on the top left for DC...for FH2 there is 8 + traffic

- number of cars (DC-50, FH2 200)

Good job you got this almost right...50 for DC but 200+ for FH@

- size of drivable area (DC - small closed tracks, FH2 huge open world)

DC races can last up to 25 mins long
FH has a huge drivable area

- customization (DC-NONE, FH2-full customization, tuning, custom decals)

You are right...none besides your club logo

- car damage (DC-NONE, FH2 - costmetic and performance)

There is cosmetic damage -__- but there are invisible walls to keep you on course in DC

- online (DC- standard few players races, FH2 - seamless open world multiplayer exploration, 1000 players car clubs, 700+ events, Drivatars that learn and drive online, when you're offline)

DC is online game with clubs...pretty standard FH2 is Openworld online racing as you would expect *claps*

- physics (DC - almost none, cars bouce of the walls, not affected by sings etc, FH2 - full physics with possibility to do barrel roll etc.

more physics based calculations than FH2 -__-
besides the ability to do a barrel roll lol

Is this what gaming has come down to? Comparing raindrops?
____

@ AngelicIceDiamond

- 200 cars? The number of cars a game contains has nothing to do with system performance. GT2 on PS1 had more cars. And it's not like they're being rendered simultaneously on screen for your point to even make sense.

- The first FH's world map wasn't all that dense in the first place. It was mostly made up of long winding roads. And while a 3x larger map is great, we've seen games like GTA San Andreas be 3x bigger than GTA3(both on PS2) and have quite a bit of wasted space.

- Cloud servers are external.
That has nothing to do with the Xbox One hardware itself.

- Tunable and customizable cars?
Yeah, because Forza Horizon is obviously so unique in that regard. Therefore games like NFSU couldn't have retroactively existed because it's only possible on Xbox One... right?

But don't get me wrong, I think the game is gonna be great.

Destrania  +   105d ago
@alexkoepp

DriveClub does/will have rain on the windshield. The cam Evolution used for these videos are hood cams though, not cockpit cams. Pay attention to what you say before you say it.

@hercules189

Killzone is widely regarded as having better visual fidelity than Ryse AND just so happens to be far more open. And don't even get me started on Infamous, because that game pretty much owns anything we've seen released so far on next-gen consoles, and also just so happens to be another PS4 exclusive.

DriveClub is set to take the visual crown for racing games upon release, and most likely the rest of this year. Above that however, it is immersive, unique, exciting, and fun. Winning combination.

This right here shows how dedicated Evolution is to DriveClub and the experience. No other racing game can touch it as far as overall attention to detail by a long shot. http://blog.eu.playstation....

I'm not sure how much of the track world/track both consoles could render, but If you put into perpective, I believe that what X1 and Ps4 renders must be around the same size despite solely being a track (on Ps4) or open-world on X1. See the Open-world here have 2d static crownd models and the world is not filled with moving things apart from the cars. It not like a real Open-world like Infamous or Prototype if know what I mean !

Except that´s not how things work. Never at any point during gameplay will the whole world be rendered in FH, it´s only a set distance that is, and from what we´ve seen, Driveclubs backgroundds, which sport a huge draw distance,might even be as big as the ones being rendered in FH, and guess what, they´re more detailed, and every single cloud, wind draft, weather condition is calculated real time, with an actual to scale atmosphere between the tracks and the sky( clouds are full-on 3d models by the way).

acdramon  +   105d ago
Well, since it's an arcade racer by design, DriveClub doesn't make cars completely break down from too much damage. The damage effects will still be there (layers of paint chipping off, deformation etc.) but this is one of the many ways Evo tackled evening the playing field among all people.

"who in the world would want to drive a super car off road like you can in FH2?"

Firstly for this argument, you have to take into account that there are more people that play racing games than people who drive super cars.

http://www.youtube.com/watc...
http://www.youtube.com/watc...

Also, just to add 'realism' to the argument:

http://www.youtube.com/watc...

So in actual fact, there are people who want to drive super cars off-road for your information.

" It just adds unrealistic gameplay to it's unrealistic looks."

Absolutely flawed. You're saying that it's unrealistic to have super cars off-road. Well if you look back at the first two videos, it clearly shows two 'real' super cars off-road. Also to add, lets just assume that having super-cars off-road is unrealistic, how do you combat the situation? Invisible walls at off-road areas? Barricades that miraculously show up every time you drive in a super cars? Invisible walls and barricades that show up every time you're in a super car sounds pretty realistic. /s

I actually don't know why people agreed with you. If you (as a reader) did agree with Kinjo, I'm actually keen to know why.

It's hard to tell because of the fact that neither gif is in 1080p, which annoys the crap out of me when an article tries to compare graphics. I will say though that the water definitely looks far better on the hood of the car in DC, considering it's treated like a fluid and not a static marble. I'd say reflections are more realistic in DC, considering that the hood of a car isn't a mirror like it is in FH2. Lighting is hard to compare because the gifs are at different times of day. DC's environment appears to be more detailed as well. What I'll say is this. While looking at the DC gif, I could see how someone would mistaken it for an actual video, where as FH2 still has the video gamey look to its textures. Can't wait to see full res gifs and screenshots. That will make the differences very apparent.
Also just from a shear power perspective, we know that DC has to look better.

Driveclub annihilates ForzaHorizon2. There shouldn't even be a comparison.
skoorydook  +   106d ago
raindrops, seriously
RichardDawkins  +   106d ago
Yes. When Forza Horizon 2 announced it had "dynamic weather" first and Driveclub's weather came as "DLC" shortly after the launch, people were criticizing DC for being an "unfinished game. Now Driveclub has shown us it's weather is better and people are like.."raindrops, seriously".
skoorydook  +   106d ago
What are you babbling on about stop being so defensive, my comment had absolutely nowt to do with sticking up for one and downplaying the other it was referring to that people are now comparing raindrops, whats next snowflakes, how branches on trees blow in different wind speeds or how about if different tyres leave a different patern on the surface water depending on tyre brand, in case you haven't got it yet I think its a tad too far

^"whats next snowflakes, how branches on trees blow in different wind speeds..."

Yes. Why not? Is it too much to ask for attention to detail on our new next gen machines? Why should we not be interested in how far the developers have striven to create a believable world for us to enjoy in our games?

I find it interesting and it seems others do too.
Spotie  +   106d ago
They're comparable features on comparable games.

When they do comparisons of cars, they even compare mundane things like the locations of cup holders.
mcstorm  +   106d ago
@skoorydook its not worth it this site is just full of mine is better than yours. I cant wait for Forza Horizon 2 as Forza Horizon was for me the best racing game of last gen and this look to improve on it. I am still on the fence with DriveClub as it is not quite what I thought it was going to be but im going to wait until I get a chance to play it before saying its not for me.

I do find it funny though how people move to the smallest things when comparing games. Its gone from res, fps, now to rain drops it is really like a load of school kids on this site. I think gaming was better when it was seen as a geek thing there was less crap said about games and more fun in talking about them.
skoorydook  +   106d ago
I'm getting both, prob day 1 for both, I just don't see the point in even comparing the core experiences of the two games one is a sim and one is an arcade racer, can't remember people comparing NFS to Forza or PGR to GT.

There are places in people's collections for both as both offer different experiences, I want to get all serious and tune,paint and do things like alter my gear ratio depending if the race is suited to top speed or acceleration then I play Forza, I want to defy the laws of physics and power slide round a hairpin approaching 100mph I play Driveclub but you're correct school kids would rather give each other a reach around and high five over raindrops.

They both look great, it's actually a rather close call...but when you realize that FH2 is an openworld racer with 200+ cars, seamless online play, voice controled GPS, tune-able cars, drive-atars, and weather effects at launch...it becomes much less of a comparison. It's clear that DC is aiming for just a more straight-forward racer, where as FH2 has much more going on. It's not quite the straight forward comparison one might think.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   106d ago
True.

Forza as far as we know has a little more going for it.
tuglu_pati  +   106d ago
I have to agree with you.

DC looks incredible and there is no doubt about that but comparing an open world racing game to a controlled environment game which has just cosmetic damage, no tune-able cars, only 50 cars to name a few things is not a fair comparison i mean is obvious DC is using most of the PS4 processing power on graphics.

Now with that said, DC looks more impressive than FH2 graphic wise.

You can also see that Horizon has better draw distance. In DC mountains and far environments are always in fog, not just these rainy screenshots, but on all of the others as well. I understand, it's another "artistic" method which saves power and lets you focus on closer things on the screen.

Blame it on the rain - Milli Vanilli (or whoever sang for them)

OT, it is all good, the last thing I'll be concern with is how the raindrops look when I am speeding down the road. DC has better rain, I gotta to admit but Forza Horizon 2 has more cars and is an open world racer. Pick your poison.

Wow this is no contest. I think the gap in power of the two consoles is going to start becoming a lot more noticeable from here on out.
slasaru01  +   106d ago
Exactly my thought! Compare 200 cars vs 50, number of tracks differs drastically with the open world, collision and environmental damage physics in Horizon, plus half powered simulation from original Forza, GPS, car tuning, better draw distance. Now every objective gamer should see the gap in power.
hobohunterz  +   106d ago
Just stop...
GTgamer  +   105d ago
You doooo know the amount of cars doesn't have anything to do with the power of the console righhhhht it has more to do with the time the Devs Had because if that was the case PS3 was the strongest console in yhe world since that game has a 1000 cars.

Driveclubs rain drops take into account the gravitational pull of the moon as well as the Coriolis Effect, reflecting whether the car is in the Northern or Southern hemisphere.

Im pretty sure the rain has more salt if youre closer to the coast as well reducing the chances of it turning to sleet.

;P

This is evolution studios we're talking about...

"The cloud cover and conditions you choose will dictate how much snow and rain will fall. The wind direction and speed determines where snow will settle. Then when it stops, the temperature and height of the sun governs how quickly clouds evaporate and roads dry out. We’re really striving for consistency in every detail just like we have done with everything else in the game.

You can expect every one of those and you can expect it to change dynamically and unpredictably while you race – because we’ve designed it to be just like real weather systems. Spots of rain can become torrential downpours or transition into blizzards, quickly or slowly, and when the clouds clear up the tracks will dry out too.

So if you’re in Norway, for example, you’ll face heavier snow when you’re racing atop the mountains and much lighter snow or sleet when you descend to a lower altitude. Lots of things play into this, like elevation, wind speed and temperature. We can even adjust all the way to zero visibility conditions too – the only limit will be the need to balance things for fun and usability."

I am pretty sure after this comparison the rain in forza has more salt lol

Both games have awesome weather effects, but I think DC has more advanced/realistic effects ;)

You're comparing raindrops in 2 completely different games. This isn't a fair judgement at all. Yeah DC looks better. But it's a totally different game with a different engine, different developer and different art style. It's sunny in one video, cloudy in the other. DC is a linear racer. Forza is an open world where you can go anywhere. Why not compare Sunset Overdrive and GTA5 to see which has more realistic character models. This is ridiculous.

You said "Forza Horizon 2 will be a better game ;)" even without both games being release yet but you are quik complaining about the comparisons. Both games are striving for realism in their visuals so I think the comparison is legitimate and DC comes out on top.
Dehnus  +   106d ago
He said that in reply to another trollish argument replied to his original comment. But that you leave out of course.
beerzombie  +   106d ago
I think one can make a good educated guess. Both games will be at least good, because both developers have a history of making good racing games.
MasterCornholio  +   106d ago

Well, in FH2, sunlight reflection on the hood is pretty muddy. Environment reflection on the hood is pretty clean, but sunlight is odd.
jhoward585  +   106d ago
DC weather demo was taken from an early build of the game. Still, it looks better than forza 2.

The final build of DC is going to destroy FH2.

Both look good. But DC look's more realistic.

sckipt  +   106d ago
Ok first off they both look amazing and there is no doubt about that. But if for some stupid reason you are only looking for the visuals per dollar ratio. It's DC. Although the comparison is a bit unfair you can still tell that the raindrops and visuals are better in DC.

Killzone2 is an awesome game. 3 wasn't bad.

SF story isn't good enough. MP is good in places. Weapons are too big on the screen imo.

Anyway.

Yeah nextgen rain. lol.

Who can make the biggest splash. Kinda getting silly.

FH2 is an open world CrossGen. Game running on a lesser Ram & GPU

There was never a comparison to begin with

No FH2 is not a cross-gen game. It built from the ground up on X1 engine. FH2 is totally different game on 360 do some research.

I think it's the level of detail of the rain. I understand what you're saying but it's still pretty impressive that the raindrops are that detailed.
