NowGamer: PGR might be dead, but it certainly isn't forgotten. A recent hands-on with Forza Horizon 2 reveals it might just be the sequel we've been waiting seven years to play.
So many great driving/racing games in the next 6 months! It'll be nice to get some of the different play styles from them all. I don't know which I'm more interested in, this or Driveclub. I know... I'll get both!
Forza. Nothing can top it.
The Crew was looking good and even Driveclub...Forza Horizon 2 came out of nowhere and is looking to be the best of the three. Cant wait!
graphics can be argued, but forza gameplay always just seemed a step ahead for being the most fun racing game.
driveclub plays closer to gotham than horizon. anyway, xbox driving fans should pick up horizon as it should satisfy their needs
I'd say driveclub is more Pgr there's no doubt about that, I've always seen it as a spiritual successor in a way
How so? Real question.
dc is made by a lot of the same people that made pgr. it has about the same type of (smallish) car selection and lack of tuning/customization that pgr does. its closed track on fictitious tracks like pgr and rewards drivers more on their tricks than simply beating a clock like pgr. forza horizon is open world, has some degree of tweaking, tons more cars (like forza5) and uses a completely different game design.
PGR 4 had a total of 136 vehicles, that's more than double DC so I can't give you that, closer to FH2's 200 than DC's anemic 50. FH2 like FH1 and PGR awards the player for stylish driving Playground Games is also partially made up of ex Bizzare Creations team members FH2 like PGR features a lot of car manufactures from across the globe and not just Europe. That is to say PGR had Japanese cars. So does FH2. DC not so much. FH2 promotes fun over all else, much like PGR did. DC seems so serious like. I believe Horizon is what PGR would have evolved into. DC seems to take the PGR formula and removes the fun (lightness) out of it and gives you less cars while at it. To put it plainly, DC is more like a spiritual ancestor brought forward to PGR. Horizon is where PGR lives on.
FH2 will win racing game of the year hands down!!!
As usual the PS fanbony's need to chime in about Driveclub because they're all like that fat kid on the block we all grew up knowing.....the attention seekers. The article is about FH2 and mentions nothing about DC. I find it rather hillarious reading some of these comments of said fanboys who must have a real early copy of DC so that they can compare it to PGR. Both FH2 and DC will probably both be great games on their own merits so why is everything a competition to you fat kids on the block?
"whats tuning?" driveclub asked
And while the 3 games are coming out (Project CARS, Drive Club, Forza Horizon 2), games like Assetto Corsa and Rfactor 2 are blowing them out of the water.
Technically maybe yes..60 frames and better graphics due to the limited road space..but in fun factor..Horizon 2 had no competition here and games are about fun, no? Look at these 2 clips and think again. https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat...
