DriveClub Weather Vs Project CARS Weather Comparison

Comparison between Project CARS and DriveClub weather pics side-by-side. See them both then judge by yourself. (Driveclub, Project CARS, PS4, Wii U, Xbox One)

I honestly think that DriveClub has a better weather system and is a better game in Overall than Project CARS. I guess it will be a HUGE Sony exclusive franchise in the near future.

And to compare them you compare four completely random screenshots that don't even show a remotely similar situation?

Mind you, may at least use your own picture for the post here instead of just grabbing mine.

Abriael First of all, I am comparing the weather system in general not in a specific situation
Second, those pics were released via a press release making them availabke and free to use to any video game journalist
Third, I will adf more pics to the post tomorrow to increase comparison
Final thing, know that press releases are for everyone to use and try to know the rules and guidelines as journalist and see if I done anything wrong in this before you talk
Anyway thanks for your comment and feedback on the post :)

Really? You mean the picture on the top right of this page with "driveclub vs Project cars" on it was in a press release?

That's most amazing. I didn't know that the Project Cars developers would include the featured picture from my latest comparison article (which I made myself in photoshop, with a screenshot taken directly from my copy of the beta) in an official press release.

I'm almost honored /s.

Secondly, comparing random screenshots with absolutely no identity between each other other than "it rains" is rather funny, especially since it shows absolutely nothing.

I'm sorry, but I have to go with Abriael on this one. These screens aren't good indicators.

It's only a pic dude, I just google image searched "Driveclub vs Project Cars" and your image is on the first page, I would have probably used it too if I were in his shoes. You did a good job making it but not worth fighting over I don't think.

As for the comparison, he at least managed to show what water droplets look like on cars in each game. Both look great but I think DC edges it based on these images. Hardly a comprehensive comparison but, meh.

Forza Horizon 2 looks better than both in my opinion.
Malphite  +   345d ago
@tbone567: Goes to show that opinions can be wrong. Forza Horizon 2 seem to look good from what we've seen but PCars and DC are in it's own league graphically.

To be fair FH2 is an open world game so it obviously won't be able to compete for the best looking racing game.
assdan  +   346d ago
I'm guessing driveclub will have better effects. This is because it's made by a 1st party dev, at half the framerate (I believe so at least). If driveclub doesn't look better in every way, then something went horribly wrong.
gapecanpie  +   345d ago
One of the most stupidest comparison I ever seen. The pic aren't the same size which already made the whole comparison pointless.

One is a arcade racer that can only manage 30fps while the other is a sim with a advance simulation engine and run at 60fps (at least on the pc) and a deep customization system.

This is a apple to oranges comparison. If you like your games with only just graphics going for it and the rest is barebones then Drive club is what you need... if you want deep gameplay and customization options with awesome graphics at 60fps at a resolution higher then 1080p then you need Project Cars.

I really don't know why some sites use this picture for Driveclub


This screenshot is CLEARLY PROJECT CARS screenshot ( date March 3rd 2013 ) and weather stuff were clearly unknown in Driveclub :


And i graphically is pretty different from official Driveclub screenshots after weather announcement this year :

Imp0ssibl3  +   345d ago
That's a bold statement, surely one might discuss the graphics of the two games but gameplay is going to be completely different.

I don't think they will be directly comparable in terms of gameplay.
XiSasukeUchiha  +   346d ago
Driveclub weather system is better in my opinion thaat's all folks.
Mostafeto  +   346d ago
Totally agree man just look at the droplets on that hood it looks INSANE I don't even care if Slightly Mad Studios add VR support to PC or even Voice-Driving Support :P I will still buy DriveClub for my PS4 It is just better in EVERYTHING
nujack  +   346d ago
I agree completely. As far as console racing games go, Drive Club looks to be the best. It is just ridiculous how good it looks.
Hyper_Tension140  +   346d ago
Best looking yes, but the best racer for me might be Forza Horizon 2, because my experience with the first was simply amazing.

Maybe is because I dont know much about driveclub yet so for now this is my pick, ill be buying both.(and Project Cars)

But I have to admit, those graphics alone could sell the game:)

The cars in Project Cars don't even look wet in the rain. The cars in Driveclub look like a car should in the rain.
Hyper_Tension140  +   346d ago
I agree, something is off about Project Cars graphics I just cant put my finger in it.

Driveclub looks more true to real life.

Anyway didnt the Wii U version of Project Cars get delayed?

The website says its coming on the same time as the ps4, xbone, and pc.

Nice avatar dude! LOL

I don't comment on the story because I don't like racing games at all, so... both look good I guess?
Majin-vegeta  +   346d ago
How about waiting till DC gets the weather patch and then compare them?
Spotie  +   345d ago
Does it really matter? It's going to look the same or better, in all likelihood.
Imp0ssibl3  +   345d ago
On that I'll have to agree, it already looks fantastic so it seems unlikely that it will change dramatically.
Eonjay  +   346d ago
Thing is, we want motion guys. Don't really care where the pictures are from, because it doesn't give a real comparison of weather effects as this article's title would leave one to believe. 'Effects' is a concept of things in motion. Whoever produces that video first will have a real story.
WeAreLegion  +   346d ago
Don't really care to compare them. I just know both look incredible and I'm definitely getting Driveclub. We'll see about Project CARS.
its_JEFF  +   346d ago
I don't know which one looks better, but one thing is for sure... It's gonna be a great Holiday season for Race fans!
DirtyPimp  +   346d ago
driveclub wins this one for sure. but i bet project cars will look phenomenal in 4k. both will be awesome experiences.
Myze  +   346d ago
Main thing I see on almost all pictures and videos of Project CARS is that it looks too... not sure the best worde, but "sterile." It just doesn't look natural, especially compared to Drive Club, and especially in terms of environments and the little we've seen of the weather.

I think one of the main reasons for this is lighting. Project CARS lighting looks very uninspired and almost unnatural. Conversely, Drive Club has a softness from the lighting that is very natural and far more pleasing to the eye. In terms of overall realism, I would say Project CARS looks a tad better in terms of the cars themselves and the tracks, although barely in both cases. In terms of backgrounds, weather (from what we've seen), lighting and environments, I would give it to Drive Club. Overall, Drive Club is just a better looking game from what has been shown.

My thoughts exactly.
MRMagoo123  +   345d ago
yup agree 100%
bamillington  +   345d ago
Drive club might look better but project cars plays better
Sykoticz  +   345d ago
yea know one knows yet what DC feels like. And if they do did you play it with a controller or wheel? Project Cars is a full on sim.
MysticStrummer  +   345d ago
More and more people from the future are popping up every day.

Why can none of you bring back any useful information???

MRMagoo123  +   345d ago
Ill take some Australian lotto numbers please people from the future (next weeks ones would be good thanks)
90Supra  +   345d ago

you really can't compare weather systems through screenshots...

need actual gameplay for that...
Imp0ssibl3  +   345d ago
According to those who have seen Driveclub's weather system at E3, it looks fantastic. Although admittedly it seems like Slightly Mad Studios have upgraded their own weather effects, so it'll probably be close in the end.
Aurenar  +   345d ago
I'll buy them both. I'll play them both. I'm going to enjoy both. To hell graphics comparison, I want to play them all!
boskoz  +   345d ago
Driveclub will have better effects.
imt558  +   345d ago
I see they removed the screenshot from the article (screeshot is in my post above).
Dothraki  +   343d ago
Project cars graphically doesn't do it for me, and as much as i love the look of driveclub, the rain animation loops quite quickly.
