GamerVets compares features from both Xbox One's Forza Horizon 2 and PS4's DriveClub.
Forza horizon 2 Hail Hydra
DriveClub is superior but ForzaHorizon2 still looks good. I will play them both because I love driving games. What I really want to see is another Project Gotham Racing.
How is Driveclub superior than Forza or Vice versa? They havent released yet. Wait for the reviews. I too want a PGR games, its one of my favorite racing games.
lol, How is Driveclub superior? I'm not saying Forza is better but it is a more established franchise. Saying that Driveclub is superior is just ridiculous
You do realize I hope that in a lot of ways DRIVECLUB feels like a spiritual successor to PGR. A lot of the team from bizzare studios now works for evolution.
This comparison only matters if both games were coming out on both systems or if you owned both systems and you have to make a choice.
DC looks beautiful but the driving looks really uninspiring. I need to play it to see if thats true or not though. Also only 50 cars and only 5 per club is a worry. I am convinced they spent too much time makong pretty clouds than stuff that really matters in a racing game.
DC practically is pgr. Just more social
Well idk about the whole "superior" thing. So far we haven't played it. At least with forza we have a general idea how it will play, and it should be great. DC does seem very promising and the visuals are top notch. But horizon is a diff type of game, and the visuals and weather systems, along with great physics, all at 1080/60 is nothing shy of impressive, especially on the xb1. So I will reserve judgement, and I know I will be playing both come this fall. But for now, for anyone to deem one of these racers superior to the other is really kind of wrong. But again, to each his own. I am more excited for Forza, and I would guess that will be the more fully featured title over all, but that's just me. Let's wait and see.
Did they really just list drivator as a feature? lol I'm done.
Gotta love comparison articles that list unique features to one game just to say the other game has less features.. Its okay to compare stuff like amount of cars as they both have cars but to say one has driveatar and the other doesn't? When they missed out features Driveclub has that Forza doesn't so this is a very slanted comparison to begin with.
I see drive club as being the clearly prettier game, with Forza having the better experience due to it being open world driving in the south of france...that setting is hard to beat. I have a ps4, ps3, and 360, so it will be drive club or project cars for me, but I can appreciate forza horizon 2 for what it is nonetheless.
you can't even lie - when it comes to value, Forza Horizon 2 clearly takes the cake. Only thing Driveclub seems to have had going for itself since it being announced are the graphics. Nice to know they speant more time on how the game looks than plays. But then again, I haven't played either. Guess we'll find out this year
They forgot to mention half of those features of Dc are missing at launched.
nice name OT: Both look great to any Race lovers but i gotta say DriveClub Graphics are Infapdible
Exactly which half of those features are missing? List them please.
He's talking about the weather
So the game has two features. Cars. Weather. Is that what he's saying when he says "half of those features..."?
Driveclub all the way
... down )))
oooooo they gone loose their head when they get a wif of this. ↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓
Forza beats Driveclub by a mile when it comes to features. No contest.
Haha as I was saying. Drive club looks good but that's pretty much it. No depth. Just sparkle.
We will see when the reviews come out how good Drive Club is and FH2. Quantity is obviously not what DC devs were going for. I will judge whether or not I will pick the full game up based on reviews.
well... you can argue "quantity" but when it comes to game options i think quantity is usually a consideration of quality or at the very least value... unless horribly executed which is pretty unlikely considering the franchise and the dev team. To be completely honest, neither of these games really interest me personally. i think F2 will offer a more rounded experience but my heart lies with the sims and neither of these titles will scratch that itch for me.
FH2 Open world baby!
Well according to that chart Forza obviously wins.... All Y's. 200 launch cars, 1000 club cars compared to 50 and 6.
Double post fail... So I'll say racing is fun.
The moment you see drivatar ai in that list you knew that the guy who put that list together is just full of sh!t. Why would you put something that is specific to forza in a comparison list? Why didn't he include photo mode as a feature in driveclub?
Forza has had photo mode for many years now. Going back to Forza 3 I believe.
Yes this is true There also is forza vista which isn't mentioned
Drivatars are a huge feature. I have Forza 5 and drivatars help make the game awesome. I agree they should not of called it drivatars. But, this is a huge feature that should be in every racer. The ability to track your friend and other driver's similar to your tendencies and put them as live AI in your game makes the racing genre a lot less boring.
DC won't even launch with photo mode so cool your jets brother.
I'll be getting both, but I'm more looking forward to Driveclub. It looks amazing and I like all of Evolution studios previous games so I'm pretty sure it will be fun. Forza looks good too though.
Unless Project Cars and The Crew are top notch games, I think FH2 and DC will be the best racers this fall. Project Cars seems to get tons of hype and already predicted to be among the best racers, while The Crew is almost non-existent. I bet the quality of each falls somewhere in the middle and much closer to one another.
yeah The Crew is releasing with bad timing. Personally i am getting Project Cars on Pc and DriveClub on ps4. I might pick up Fh2 on my 360 since i really liked the first one but ill wait for a price drop. I was interested in The Crew but with all those racer out there and some i don't even have time getting around to play much Ubisoft should probably delay it.
I heard a lot of people didn't like the Crew beta very much. I'm wondering how the review will be when it comes out.
This comparison is not different from when people compare the graphics of both games but I can guarantee that if Evolution Studios are taking Guerilla Games' approach for post launch support Driveclub will be feature packed. The community will ask for more features as Paul mentioned about offroading etc... but the only thing i worry about is if they're paid or not.
DC does have Livery's customization, at least I'm pretty sure it does as I swear I heard you can customize the look off your cars and your Drive Club can all use the same custom liverys you created. DC may not have Drivatar AI, but I swear it has equally as good AI. Drivatar is way overblown, don't they know how AI works in Forza!? The tracks are split up into many different sections, depending on what you do in that section it'll upload the data to pretty much a spreadsheet and the AI will try to copy what you did, of course its pretty advanced like if your near another car etc.. Its been done before, but not so advanced as these are next-gen consoles. The Cloud doesn't have anything to do with it apart from uploading and downloading new data. Hence why you don't actually need to be online or have any connection at all to the net for Forza's AI..
Sure you need a connection. If you don't connect to the net, you can't play Forza with AI based on your friends driving habits. If you don't connect, all you get is canned AI pre-loaded on the disc.
Yes it uploads data to the cloud. But, that data is then analyzed and processed in the cloud to create a profile of your driving in all the scenarios. Then, the processed profile is downloaded into the game. That is one of the nice features of cloud processing. It is not a real time thing but it is a cloud feature based on big data concepts. Literally over a million or two million gamer profiles are tracked every time they race... Drive club will have a set AI that will behave the same in every race in the same situations. Forza is dynamic as gamer driving tendencies evolve an change.
DriveClub is a free game though right? Makes sense that it has no content.
FH2 is open world. DC is circuit-based (tracks).
It's not free..there is a ps+ Version....which is free but it's not the whole game
Yeah the extended demo is free. Quality is what they wanted out of the game, not quantity. We will see if it paid off when reviews come out for it.
That's insulting! DC is a paid game Sony just give people more choice to experience it. People seemed to forget that DC is NEW as baby while FH2 got tons of money and devs working on it not to mention they have the liberty of not having to build everything from scratch. Content of DC is good considering they have to do a lot of R&D for it just like all first games they tend to lean on quality than quantity,it's a sure guess that second game will have more content.
Sorry Good-Smurf, but DC had an extra year in development which renders part of your argument moot. I agree that DC is grapgically stunning, however that said as a racing fan I want features in a game open world or not. DC seems to be lacking in featires at this point. Thats not to say DC won't add a few new features further down the road but as it stands right now in comparison DC seems to be lacking in a lot of areas. Reviews will help people decide. I am getting a PS4 to sit next to my wonderful X1 and if DC is any good I will give it a go, if only for the graphical prowess.
Hi, I updated the article to be more clear about FH2's GPS Assistant. So I changed that feature to be among the Kinect 2/PS Cam Support row.
Quality over quantity for me despite FH2 being open world but I would take driveclub due to it being more polished ni must admit it does look better. Also it would only take a DLC or 2 to match FH2 tbh I like to see how gran turismo will look on ps4 and I bet that would shit on all forza and driveclub
Well for a game that built on an existing old FM5 engine I expect more than just 200 cars and I doubt the world is nearly as big as the first TDU. Oh and FH2 have like 3 studios to develop it (Sumo,Playground,Turn 10) While Driveclub only have a "small" studio like Evolution develop the game. Talk about the amount of content it's out of question really gotta give Evo more respect,they going up against some big hitters and literally hold up well against them or better. Not to mention these 3 devs have a lot of work cut off hell they can just use the same cars from FM5 and then a handful new cars and no time wasted on building a new engine from scratch like Evo did. Gotta support a new IP more that's for sure,while Forza got tons of sheep going to buy anything they made anyway. It's quite unfair really a New IP built from scratch against an established series with all the assets ready to make the game so no shit they can put more time on adding more content.
So in other words, give Drive Club a free pass because the devs worked hard and whether the game is worse or lacks more content and features is irrelevant? Either you are here to compete or you are not, whether you are new or not does not matter. If the product is not up to par with the competitions it is no more deserving of a consumers money. (btw not saying this is necessarily the case for DriveClub, to be honest I don't know much about the game primarily because I don't care about a realistic racing game that does not have customization and car variety) It is like hiring a new business to remodel your home when another can do it just as good if not better in half the time for the same price. You might as well call yourself a charity rather than a consumer.
FH2 trounces DC. Both games will be very fun but for different reasons.
This is a massacre if you are comparing features as one include over 200 cars from all over the world, up to 1000 club cars, weather at launch, open world, not to mentioned the first game was beloved and highly acclaimed by critics and gamers.
First off DC is going for quality and realism, this isn't a good comparison because they aren't even the same type of game. The crew vs forza H2 would be better, with the crew looking to have a much bigger and better open world...
LOL at disagrees do you expect 500 cars from a completely new game or something? Oh well now they'll be complaining that the take too long to make instead... Not even first Gran Turismo have that many cars. And I never insult FH2 before it just the fans that ruin the mood. What did I make you mad fanboys? From expecting more from your series? I want it to be better then you guys were like "No they can't do better but I wanted it to be better but I hate that guy to see the series to do better" Fanboys' logic at its finest... I just said the truth there and I wouldn't be surprised that DC would just have as many cars if they have the same amount of people as FH2 working on it.
According to Wiki, the first GT on PS1 still had 140 cars. And the first Forza on Xbox had 231. So a first party racer having only about 50 cars is pretty small.
GRAN TURISMO has more features than forza. so GRAN TURISMO better game?
So where is gran turismo for ps4? Forza motorsports 5 will be two years old before gt is announced, then it takes them another 3 years to make it.
which GT you talking about? compared to what forza at that. Its not just features its the whole package. DC is lacking everything except graphics. I wonder if abriel will say a few words lol. His article about why we shouldnt compare the two was funny. But we all know why he made that story. Didnt want DC to get trounced!
These comparisons are funny. Comparing a new IP to a franchise that's not that big in the first place. Then again, these comparisons might be just right because both games have a long way to go to compare to the big dog Gran Turismo.
FH2 has no lobbies.
Already said you can turn off the UI and customize your settings through the menu. Helios said that on GAF.
Just because both developers start throwing around the term 'Social' doesn't mean they need a direct comparison. Totally different styles of game in my opinion. I'm looking forward to playing each of them
Finally some great opinion.:) I like more realistic DC look. Would be fairer to compare The Crew and Horizon. The Crew absolutely destroys FH2 in map size.
Well there's a kick in the teeth. Although DC looks super realistic. I do love the way Forza looks when the rain stops... so bright and contrasting. From the players perspective though, they'll both be a well warranted purchase. Maybe DC expansion will come in the form of DLC?
I was really looking forward to DC beating Forza and the rest of the competition. I gave them the extra time they needed to polish the game but I have to admit that I am disappointed... The games is stripped down way too much and does not even include some features that make it standout. I will give it a try anyway since I have PS+ but for now my eyes are looking closely to The Crew.
End of the day Forza Horizon is nothing more than a glorified Test Drive.
Who cares! I want RIDGE RACER 8!!!
