The hype isn't exactly through the roof for this one, but naysayers may want to do a little research. This game is shaping up pretty darn well.
I personally think it will be the most fun racing game of the year, the gameplay just looks so intense and thrilling. Evolution Studios always nails that feeling of speed you want from a racing game
Yep. Sense of speed couldn't possibly look more spot on. Everyone went absolutely nuts over the weather reveals as well. Evolution hasn't disappointed me in a long time.
All I'm saying is after a year long delay, it better be damn good, or the internet is gonna have so much trash talk it will take the entire gen for it to go away. Personally, I'm not sold... it looks beautiful, but I want to see how deep the game is before jumping. I'm on a budget and GT6 still makes me happy. I'll probably wait to see if I can score it cheap on Black Friday.
Motorstorm Apocalypse was pretty disappointing... Other than that 1 and 2 were great.
The gameplay and environment seem really awesome but I'm pretty sad about the small amount of cars available.
motorstorm 1 was my favorite. because of the mud. holy cow that was so much fun.
it's between this and Project CARS and... well... lol i hope reviews are good.
Flame Bait title, most people are looking forward to this game.
it's a sony game, it will be awesome!
I would love to see a Motorstorm from them again. I'm picking up DC on release.
I agree evolution studios know racing, also they have many devs who use to work on Project Gotham Racing so its best of both worlds in a way It looks intense plus it actually looks next gen racer I think it will evolved over a period of time into what it will become 12 months after launch, i expect a lot of dlc(some free some paid) and a lot of updates to add and improve stuff at gamescom it will be in the limelight, Europe is a big racing market and that's where sony wants to really show it off
"The hype isn't exactly through the roof for this one" ...has this author been living under a rock? Since like, the PS4 was announced? Everything behind this title is hype based on graphics...
I think it will be as fun as all racing games because all racing games feel the same to me.
Coming from a guy that loves his Forza like the next Microsoft guy...DriveClub looks like it will make an amazing game and one that should stay in my constant rotation on PS4!!
i thought the graphics were like insanely good, stupidly good.
So insanely stupid good, It's freakishly retarding.
that actually made me laugh lol but only because you ended with the word "retarding" lmao. edit: + 1 funny bubble
It's insane how insanely good the game looks, you'd have to be insane not to think so.
it may be the best looking game yet. Definitely the best looking racer.
I think people are giving it a hard time because they are comparing it to already established driving franchises which have continued to build up what the original game gave us when it came out years ago People should judge it based on what it is, not what it isn't. Sequels always improve on the foundation that's already been laid out so if the sequel to Driveclub fails to improve THEN be critical
"I think people are giving it a hard time because" its exclusive, Here i fixed it for you.
Every new game is going to be judged by how well it measures up to its competition. End of story. If a new game does not measure up to what is already available, it doesn't get a pass simply because it's a new IP. Gamers have every right to be critical if the game doesn't perform. In fact, gamers should be - it's what drives the market to bring us better experiences.
100% agree, But the issue here is those supposed expected standard that people are coming up with are completely ridiculous even hen its not out.
But why can't a newly established IP based off a genre that has been around since the dawn of time not have the same or improved upon features that other games of it's type have? Why must we settle for less just because this title is new? It's not like this type of game is new to gamers of the driving world, and this team delayed it for almost over a year and for what? Titanfall was blasted by a lot on here for features it didn't have compared to other FPS titles of it's kind.
no I think it has to do with being a year late. A lot of projects that are late by this long end up badly as they rush to get it out the door. This is not to say that this won't end up being a good game. I imagine it probably will be a decent game. Not great, but worth playing. I think Sony screwed up by announcing it a year too early. They didn't just show the game and say 'coming soon', they said it would be out. And it wasn't. Poor project management straight up. The game wasn't even close to being ready. A whole year is not just a little tweaking here and there, it's probably 1/4 of the entire development of the game, that is a big underestimation. But they spun it to sound like oh this just needs a little more time to cook like how Blizzard does. Nah this wasn't that, they either lied outright about the release date or they have (had?) a very incompetent person running the project that was promising the upper management that it would be ready. Also I bet some people don't even think it will be out this year. Something similar happened with another racing game that Sony made (Gran Turismo on the PS3), and they kept saying every year it would come out and it was several years' worth of delay. So people are probably skeptical. I know I am. I'll be trying the PS+ version first before I buy that is for sure. It went from a 'definitely buy' to 'maybe' for me because they dropped the ball and now I am not sure at all what the quality will be like. I work in software dev, and generally speaking, late projects do not perform well. A project manager makes an unattainable goal, and then pressures the staff to work like crazy to meet that goal. Then tons of bugs get introduced because people are working 12-16 hour days, are sleep deprived and make mistakes. really don't care if you agree/disagree whatever, but this happens all the time in software dev, gaming industry or any other industry and it is always management's fault for setting up unrealistic deadlines and then adding features as they go which is known as feature creep. What you usually get at the end is a heap of crap that is stitched together. And before you all say I'm wrong and how beautiful the game looks. BF4 looks good too, but it played like hell and was very broken. That is exactly what I'm concerned about with this game.
Honestly, it looks beautiful, and I am sure it will be really fun. For me though, project cars, the crew, and definitely forza horizon all look as good or better and are all coming this year, or pretty darn close. (Again just IMO) I will definitely play the plus version of driveclub and am sure it will be great.
I'll also just play the plus version as i'm not that into racers. If it were a new Motorstorm though i'd be out there day 1 to grab it.
OMG yes, always loved the motorstorm. Definitely would have been a buy for me.
As someone who actually played all four of these games at E3, I can assure you Driveclub was my favorite. I'm definitely getting Forza and Project CARS though. The Crew was a joke.
The E3 awards don't seem to match that, as horizon 2 was #1, crew was #2 and driveclub was #3. (Based on # of awards) That said obviously it's all taste, so sure some will prefer driveclub and some will prefer one of the others. I have only played horizon 2 and proj cars, so I guess I can't really say. That's why I tend to use website awards rather than comment section banter.
Yeah. I don't know what those guys were playing. The Crew was a bit of a running joke with the group I was hanging with. Driveclub was incredible.
I don't know B, I think I believe you. From what I saw drive club looked exciting. The crew seemed stale with the empty cities.
There is no way any of those games you listed have better graphics
I didn't say they had better graphics ...
You said Drive Club looks beautiful, then said the other games look as good or better. You most certainly did say they had better graphics.
He obviously means gameplay, hence specifically pointing out driveclubs visuals. Other than the visuals it's hard to disagree that project cars and forza horizon 2 don't "look" (aka seem) like better games. Both project cars and forza horizon 2 offer EVERYTHING that driveclub has, and more. Plus they aren't missing intrigal things like car customization, physics based damage, (ie wheel damage effecting steering) etc.
gotta a feel it could
This has been a Day 1 for me since the reveal, evolution never disappoints and the more I see of DC the more excited I get.
It could be the best racer of all time too bad the game has no car variety and that is the main reason I play racing games.
Well Gran Turismo must be the greatest racer ever to you then. As long as all the cars in Driveclub are likable and balanced, then I'm good. Cat wait to see more at Gamescom
I could'nt customize the cars in twisted metal. But I still went with shadow. The hearse is soo frickin cool!.
@LAWSON72 Car variety is nice to a extent but to many is overrated. I have tried alot of cars for one race then never used them again. There is usually just a handful of cars that i use to race on a consistent basis. I would much rather have a balance of cars and tracks and weather effects, which it seems DC is spot on.
I have no hype for it since it's an arcade racer, it looks really pretty though. I look for something like Gran Turismo or Forza in a racing game.
Lol is it possible for a ps exclusive to not be hyped through the roof. You don't even need info, it will get hyped like it's the second coming. I love Sony exclusives but I'm not going to pretend everyone of them is godly. I look towards to trying out drive club looks like fun and I wonder what they going to do to expand on it
That sounds more like you are describing Xbone games to me, titanfall anyone? , that game was hyped to big bang proportions and was in fact not as good as COD ghosts which is sad really considering ghosts is THE worst cod to date.
I didn't get the hype with titan fall. Looks fun tho, I guess it's because the titans. Should of had a sp part to it for 60
not sure how everyone else thinks, but I'm pretty excited for it personally.
Better than open world Forza Horizon 2...... Hmmmmnmm I don't know about that.
Open world doesn't automatically make it a better game.
true....Open world Does'nt mean anything to me either if you can't get out of the car. Thats a long drive to nowhere.
And the reason you "don't know about that" is because, you've played neither. Maybe horizon 1 handles similar, maybe it doesn't.
Screw the the naysayers, just give me driveclub. @mrpsychoticstalker every freaking racing game that comes out don't have open world and customization and bunch of cars does not ever mean it'll be a good game! yeah i like the crew, but does that mean that game will be good because it has over 5,000 something miles to drive on and customization? only to the open world racing game freaks. I like open world racers, but i like my closed circuit racers to. I got the best of both worlds right here. Get lost, and take that stupid joker picture while you at it.
Meh. Sim or gtfo.
Can you GTFO in that case
Because I'm not excited about the same game you are? That's pretty stupid.
No because you came here anyway knowing full well this isn't a simulation. That would be like me going somewhere I don't want to be with the point of pissing others off
People saying whether or not they are going to get it, are they all forgetting that you get to try a chunk of it with ps plus? (Unless u don't have ps plus sub, which seems unlikely)
i think most people that are vocal about their driving games are the ones that are into sims. this game isnt one so they are not excited. its pretty much the same for franchises like nfs, burnout, forza horizon and the others that i cant think of right now. they are good games and the people who buy them just likes a bit of fun. they probably are not the ones that are desperate for more content or more sequels because its not their main genre. forza and gt are sims and the players are more vocal. they love this genre more and probably play it more than others. hope people understood
Did anyone think of Driveclub when watching the new Need for Speed movie? I for one am extremely hyped for this game.
50 cars only not worth it il wait until theres news on dlc cars
I played all GT's and I only played with 30 cars on the regular. All the other cars are not worth it. OH GOD!! that damn hatchback races!!. may the gods spare me ,they're soooo slow.
Having played the game at the PS4 event, I can say first hand it was very good then, I mean surprisingly so (just very difficult), so can only imagine how good it will be now.
This will be the best driving game of all time. We are one, we are PlayStation.
August is going to be a another slow month.
50 cars running at a semi smooth 30fps, cannot wait. We are one, we are PlayStation.
I think this game is getting a fair amount of attention. There is a lot of excitement around the graphics, and gameplay, but there is also some concerns about the amount of content, specifically the car count. The delay the snafu with this games ps+ plans left a bad taste in some peoples mouths, but that appears to have subsided. Overall though, it seems like good sentiments are outweighing the bad.
If drive club announce more cars in future i will defo buy this
This game is going to impress alot of people and carve its own little niche in the racer group. Cant compare it to Gran Turismo or Forza but its not meant to be anyway. Its a unique title on its own and as a racer fan I am happy cuz I like some diversity. It looks amazing and will set the standard for graphics in racers till the next Forza or Gran Turismo comes out.
It's already hyped more than Titanfall.
if you just think about the social aspects of the game it is a day one buy for my 'rl' friends and me :D
