Here is another DriveClub gif showcasing mind blowing graphics/visuals, never seen before in a racing game.
I fear this game is going to get slammed for lack of content.. Not shipping with dynamic weather etc. is going to do the game harm with reviews.
Maybe you need to "raiz" you're optimism :)
Best graphics by a mile on next gen console period. I mean they even rendered background scene in Full 3D as like they do in open world.
reviews? who gives a damn about them anyway. trailer after trailer shows how nice this game is. If it plays as good as it looks and has some addictive modes it could end up being a pretty big deal for racing fans!
Well after Destiny I can see IGN and others bashing Driveclub for features it's not having rather than judging it by the ones it has... and we gamers shouldn't accept this since we should be able to trust those reviews.
@bloodborn sorry fella but you are on full defence in EVERY Sony article. Of course the reviews should point out what the game doesn't have as well as what it does, that way as the consumer we understand better what we are buying. If it is lacking a lot of features this should be reflected in the overall scores. That's what a review is.
OMFG hypocrisy at its finest. Since the competition scored amazing reviews they don't matter anyway. And did you ever watch a bad trailer? Those are rendered in-engine but not in game, the first game play video of the retail version didn't look that mind blowing. And seriously a Weather Patch? What's the issue with that? It's ridiculous. I expect 6-7/10 Reviews for this game.
Who cares about the review you get a lot of content to play and come up with your own review and from there can decide to buy.
@bloodbourne Any game, no matter what system its on should get lower scores because of lack of content! Stop giving pubs. and devs a pass just because you want the game to be the best or have a bias. Its silly and absurd to let these companies get a pass for constantly taking away content from us more and more, year after year. On that note i will be getting this game because what it does offer looks great! But i am rightfully bummed about lack of content, regardless if it is coming shortly after.
Hipocrites... Games should score less for a lack of content? OK well what about Project Gotham and Need For Speed? They didn't have hundreds of cars. What about Forza 5? According to your logic it should have gotten 7/10 at best for having less than half the content of F4. It only had 13 tracks which is way less than even Drive club.
Absolutely fantastic looking game, the best racer visuals by far on consoles, can't wait!
"Stop giving pubs. and devs a pass just because you want the game to be the best or have a bias." Oh man what? Who said I'll give anyone a pass? I'm one of those who would give Destiny a 9/10 for fun and addictive gameplay and a 8/10 overall, I don't think it deserved the low reviews it got as I'm still enjoying it. And we don't know about the content in Driveclub yet so I'm certainly not complaining yet. I buy this game because I want a proper racing game and I want to support the guys who made Motorstorm, one of the best racing franchises out there. If that's for you "having a bias" then so be it, but I enjoy these games no matter what the public opinion is.
@Chris12 - If reviewers rated others game in the same manner they rated Destiny, then every COD game would be getting at best a 2/10 across the board. Bottom line is, Destiny was crapped on for things they conveniently 'overlook' on other popular franchises, like COD. And thus their reviews are garbage and cannot be trusted.
@Angerfist My problem with the weather patch is this; if you are showing ALL these incredible trailers with the RAIN & SNOW in the trailers and this is IN GAME, why the hell is it not available when the game launches? That just doesn't make sense to me. You are showing someone playing the game with the weather effects in the game. It all looks fantastic, right. So why can't we play the game with the weather effects at launch? It's like an Ice Cream parlor showing you a commercial for a Banana Split sundae with whip cream, nuts, chocolate syrup and a cherry, but when you go there and buy it the cherry and chocolate syrup is gone. For me, I don't think they should show trailers with any weather in it if it's not ready. Cause we know there will be thousands of gamers expecting rain and snow in the game when they buy it and be pissed to see it's not there. Hopefuly the night/day effects are in the game at launch.
From what i remember , the weather is coming very soon , i think they said a couple of days from launch . And 55 tracks or more is very good and 50 cars is not a low number . Quality over quantity and from what i am seeing . Its the best looking racer this gen and previews said it plays great and you are welcome to try the ps plus version first , you dont have to buy it but if you like it you should buy it to support these people , because honestly they made a major jump from last year .
Buying it is a great idea - firstly, it looks a whole lotta fun! ...secondly, all proceeds go to Motorstorm PS4 development*!!! *We can hope :D
They've said they'll reveal the details of the weather patch around the time of launch, but the release certainly won't be within that time frame. Rushy has said to expect it before the end of the year, but that's as much as he'll say on the matter. Photo mode should be released this month though, as well as another track and free car :)
As a die hard Xbox fan...I completely agree with this sentiment. Quality over quantity. Cheers to you my logical friend. I was never interested in games with a shit ton of cars when I really only wanted a few per class. PGR 1, 2, and 3 (didn't play 4) had a good selection and I only used a handful. I would prefer a racer like DC on XB1 over Forza...just my opinion. But I'm not going to go out and buy a PS4 just for one game...regardless of genre. Just like I chose to skip Last of Us...which was the only PS3 game I was ever interested in.
Maybe not. Dozens of people have an early copy on Gaf and all last night, and today, they've been calling it crack on wheels. Sounds exciting to me.
*frowns* drugs + driving = bad, m'kay ;^)
Not worried about reviews. Seen enough of the game to know i want it regardless.
Yep, the first few people on GAF that got an early copy convinced me a long time ago :) Now I'm just waiting for the preload .........still waiting :/
Why is it so difficult to make an animated gif @ 1080p so we can see the graphics as they should be? downsampling from 1080p to 640px width is no different than rendering at 4k and downsampling to 1080p in that it removes all aliasing, sharpens textures, and makes any game look far better than it does at 1080p.
The answer to that is pretty stupidly obvious Andrew that I'm surprised you have to ask. So it's either gross stupidity or some pretty desperate stealth trolling going on there. You really can't deal with how amazing this game looks in any form now, can you?
DigitalRaptor- It's not trolling in the slightest. Unlike most people around here, I actually pay attention to marketing BS and notice subtle things companies do to deceive consumers. You should be thanking me since it's clear you didn't notice how they used a small image size in order to essentially down-sample the images to create an animated-bullshot. If that's the way you prefer these companies treat consumers, by using deception in order to enhance graphics, then by all means you can continue to be fooled every time a new game is released that doesn't look as good as it they advertised it to be. Btw... whats up with the lack of shadows being cast by roadside objects? One would expect that if headlights light up the side of an object, it would also cast a shadow. A few objects like snow markers do, but none of the plants, and whats up with only your vehicle lighting up the plants/guard rails, etc? Opponent cars seem to only put out light on the pavement. It seems the developers haven't driven a car with HID headlights because if they had, they'd know such lights have a cutoff that keeps the lights from blinding other drivers. Anyways... you guys need to stop getting so angry because someone raises valid questions and critiques. Calling someone stupid who is clearly far more knowledgeable than you when it comes to graphics technology makes you look petty. If you object to what I say, then explain why I'm wrong instead of acting like a complete fanboy.
The weather system is the best we've ever seen, but I can see some dumb reviewers bashing it for not be there at launch. That's like bashing Mozart for not making one of his symphonies earlier. You can't rush perfection. Games take a damn long time to make nowadays. That's the cost of people wanting to be wowed by the new gen, devs have to spend years making everything. It used to be that cars in games would take a day or a week to create. Now with Evolution setting the bar so high and needing 7 months to create a single car, I kind of expect things to escalate. It all boils down to the arguments of quality vs. quantity. Personally, I'll almost always take quality over quantity.
So review like it's there? Are you serious. At the end of the day it's about how fun it is to play not the weather effects.
I know one reviewer who's not gonna slam it...
I don't understand? "They" said the PS4 was sooo powerful and easy to program for, wtf happened? DLC Weather...why is that not ready at launch? Is Drive Club an MMO? Why only 38 cars at launch? Why only 1 feature: Clubs. Maybe it's just me, I thought more would be packed in the box.
This is coming from otherZinc…. a person who thought that DriveClub wouldn't be able to handle AI cars on the track because they were showing ghosting on the tracks in early demos, and the same person that has continually downplayed the game despite dramatic improvement in pretty much every area.. Weather is not ready at launch because it takes time to perfect such features. You don't rush a game to launch like Forza 5 clearly was, and like the rest of the Xbone launch lineup were. Forza 5 was an absolutely huge visual DOWNgrade from the pre-release material and you seem to have used that game as a talking point to downplay DriveClub despite it being a new IP and its continuous UPgrades. DriveClub doesn't only have 38 cars at launch. It has 50 cars at launch with 38 more as part of the Season Pass and 9 more to follow for free. It obviously has more than 1 feature, silly little troll. Why is it so unsurprising to me that a persistent Xbox fanboy gets so many details wrong about the game they are poorly attempting to hate on? MAKE AN EFFORT if you're going to try and downplay what is going to be a great game.
Funny too, because at the time of my writing this he had more agrees than disagrees. Not that it's entirely relevant, but it shows people are waiting for any chance they can to bash the game.
The Weather is not DLC, it is feature fans expressed a desire for and evolution decided to implement which is why it is not ready just yet. There are only 38 cars at launch because of the amount of detail put into them, no other racing game ever made has attempted as much car detail that driveclub has accomplished. The whole point of the game is that it is a social connected racer, that has been made clear from the start. Maybe you simply were expecting too much. But I know myself and many other racing game fans will find a great and fun experience in DC.
othertroll - I can tell by your history of anti driveclub comments that you are really really butthurt and threatened by Driveclub AKA forza killer lol
Many of you Mates never new that OtherZinc was a both babe for Brute Force! Now she is old and soggy!
We all look at our games through rose colored glasses. If it's a x1 exclusive, Sony guys bash it for the missing details. If it's a ps4 exclusive with the same issues, it doesn't bother the Sony guys. And vice versa, x1 guys do the same thing. So yes, as a consumer, I would want to know if this game is lacking content, and it should be marked down for it. Because the community should freak out if it gets a 10/10 needing a day 1 weather patch, and only has a handful of cars, etc... Or if it's basically Forza with better graphics. Edit: but maybe it is a 10/10 game... Who knows. But as a community we need to be careful, because if graphics alone start a wave of 10/10 scores, the developers may shift away from good and creative content.
lol reviews, meanwhile this so called gaming journalist will write their reviews based on hate, trollness and ignorance, I will be having a blast playing this game, the same happened to Destiny so many dumb reviews about it and still people counting hours and hours of gameplay, for me is like already 48 hours :D. So reviews can go and suck it!!!!! I will have a blast playing Driveclub the full version of course ;)
It is shipping with dynamic weather. It's not shipping with weather that syncs to your real-world location.
While the game looks visually stunning, its got some stiff competition at this time of year. Especially for a racing game.
Well its only competitor is Project Cars really since Forza is exclusive and The Crew while looking great will suffer from the Ubisoft formula and some previews stated that the car handles like Watch Dogs , while i am not sure that is true but if its reall then it dug its own grave early .
Some of the beta testers have said Crew handling is not like Watch Dogs at all and actually handles fairly well. I'm cautiously optimistic for the Crew right now. The Crew is a different type of game. I think Project Cars is the real competition for DC, and DC has the advantage of launching first.
Ugh, Watch_Dog driving was atrocious.
This game is just sick. Autodownload starts on the 5th. Yay!
Don't we get this same headline everyday? Lol.
I know what you mean every articles about how the game looks.
some guy on twitch found something to moan about ...Game ai when turned up is hard as f....Lol,excellent news!
I seen a nice crowd around a PS4 as someone was playing a Driveclub demo or maybe the trailer? All I know is plenty of people were stopping and gawking at it...
Damn! the night racing and the rain racing scene are insanely realistic.
You'll feel a little bit less impressed when you play it in real life. Still looks great, but when you see it on a big tv it looks a little bit less amazing. I was actually surprised.
Played it last night for a few hours. IT looks good but not quite as good as you would expect after watching all the videos and images on the web. You literally just do a race, pick another race, do it, then pick another until you just don't feel like it anymore. It's ok. Not amazing. It's definitely not a forza nor forza horizons 2 killer. It's definitely the best racer on ps4 tho I guess that's not saying much at present.
Sorry bro missread what you put lol.(or did you edit that bit?)
Racing in a racing game. How awful./s
@system32 So you're telling me that Forza horizon 2 is different? I thought the main premise of racing game is to win races and win some more races. I guess ive been playing racing game all wrong then.
You don't need to Stealth/troll?/Promote Forza.. If you expect us to Stay out of Forza Articles, We expect the same common courtesy in return/
I don't care about driving a Ferrari Italia in a corn field... So that's the reason I'm into "realistic" racers only. And... could you please tell me what else you do in Forza MS after a race?? Maybe do another race no? :D Saddest stealth troll ever. I guess you were dreaming having a PS4, playing DC on it "last night". :)
Yep. He is a sad little stealth troll. I can guarantee you he hasn't played the game and is posting BS. He is just copying the fake concern troll comments from neogaf. You can just check his posts regarding FH2 and DC. It will give you the clear picture of this troll. He never had the interest in DC to begin with and now he has a copy of DC. Sounds BS to me. You can also look on this another pathetic troll below with a stupid username. Lol. Just goes to show you how much jealous these people are. I thought after FH2 is released they'll be quiet but nope, instead of playing FH2, they are here at n4g busy trolling. Smh.
Thanks for the insight on your experience playing with the game. That was very informative.
Of course you would find it informative.
Omg, a racing game that makes you race a track then pick another race track to race over and over? What happened to the good old days where you race a track then load into a hostage rescue mission, then play a quarter of football before the next race?!?
Lmfao, your comment made me laugh uncontrollably. Bubbles! :)
Wow, talk about obvious trolling, eh? And who the hell ask for your fanboy biased opinion? Oh yeah thats right no one. And why do you have such a interest in trying to downplay this game? Are you worried about it? Just another salty fanboy. And what is SDF repellent your other account?
You received a lot of disagrees for bringing up a good point. Racing in a racing game is expected, obviously... But where's the depth? All I'm saying is, this game shouldn't be held up on graphics alone (which they are very impressive). Think to your all time favorite gaming experience. I know mine was the first time I played through MGSV, fighting that one boss (Ocelot?) and having to move the controller to port two in the middle of a boss battle. Those were great and memorable times, I don't care what the game looked like. The community's obsession with graphics is overshadowing a recent trend in half ass game content. No doubt it's driven by how hard we Bash each other over resolution, rather than the truly better game. The developers have taken notice... We have great looking games that are fun for a handful of hours...
looks good, but that was not mind blowing at all. i hate these over zealous news titles.
does any1 no where i can find the soundtrack to this game i wanna no what the ingame music will be b4 buy?
Not so many tracks confirmed yet, however you may be able to track it here, if some info shows up before you buy it: http://www.youtube.com/play... http://www.gtplanet.net/for...
Wow so many XBOX trolls crying. You are welcome to try it out, tissues will be on hand
Yep which is why I painted this "horrific" image for them. Imagine Driveclub 2 retains the visuals or improves them from Driveclub, does everything FH2 does but better and adds even more content, features, etc. They're salty and crying right now, they'll cry a river and be layers thick in salt if DC2 does just what I typed.
So Alien Isolation got a review, where is Driveclubs review??
When is it available to US Plus members?
The free version or "PS+ Edition"(I presumed that's what you mean) comes out the same day as the game so everyone can play!
The greatest looking game i have ever seen. http://a.pomf.se/yaqakv.gif
