There’s been a lot of talk about how good Driveclub looks, but what is it really like to play?
Very informative. Thanks
Ditto. Very educational. :) Can't say I'll be playing this game, though.
great article! makes me want it even more! night driving is crazy
in that gallery 5 and 13 just look incredible!
"Things You Might Not Know About Driveclub" well since no one talks about anything but graphics regarding this game, this was a very helpful article.
"well since no one talks about anything but graphics regarding this game" I feel like that's probably the same reason I know nothing about Ryse.
I noticed some misinformation. Slide #8 - You can't change difficulty settings. Yes you can! Here ( one of the example in video ) : https://www.youtube.com/wat... Slide #9. This is screenshot ( http://cdn1-www.craveonline... ) from Project CARS! Screenshot is old year and a half ( even before Driveclub announcement ) : https://translate.google.hr...
This is a very good article. I was wondering about driver customisation. I am really looking to having this in my hands soon.
cool info...can't wait to get Driveclub! ;)
So it might handle like Ridge Racer after all?
I can't confirm or deny if it plays like Ridge Racer. But it probably maybe likely plays like Ridge Racer (NOT UNBOUNDED, though).
I'm guessing it's similar to MSR/PGR and nothing like ridge racer.
From what I've seen on a few streams, no.
Like Insomnia said, according to the streams I've watched… no. It's more toward the sim end of the handling spectrum than it is arcade.
Kind of a shame that the weather patch won't come out until December. I was really hoping to play in winter climates already XD
I was thinking the same thing. I really want to drive in that realistic weather.
Very well done article. I loved Drift Races/challenges back in NFS Carbon, hoping those will be part of the PS Plus edition.
Thank you very much!
That cockpit lightning up after the fireworks went off is very impressive Can anyone make a gif of that??
It is a GIF. Did you see the image in the gallery?
Ah I see http://cdn3-www.craveonline... Impressive stuff
I wish they would update the paint customization so that you can define your own color pallets.
Great artictle! and thanks for not making us click 15 different pages :)
"#3 Don't bother driving off the track If you cut a corner in Driveclub, you will be penalized with roughly three seconds of slowdown. If you go far enough off the track, the game will automatically reset your car onto the track. Also, if you're used to colliding into other players to use them as a barrier around turns, don't bother doing that here, you will be penalized heavily with a five second slowdown." What!?!?! Does it do this for online games as well? That sucks.
lol, some people have skill, some don't...
If you're off the road for more then 3 secs the game is stopped and you're put back in the middle of the track. That's a good thing? This sounds pretty lame to me and from the reviews I've been seeing, other gamers feel the same way. No weather/photo mode until Dec. Ouch!! This sucks.
You say it sucks,I say it's about time. It sucks racing online with idiots that just ram into you because they can't race properly. Knowing they will be penalized makes me very happy.
Days of Thunder ... Movie. So I can't.. http://www.youtube.com/watc... lame..
I think it sounds great. Why shouldnt you get punished for going off the track or ramming other cars just to bumper your way around? Do F1, V8 Supercars or TOCA race drivers do that?
Words right out of my mouth it was the same in toca on ps1 Lol that game loved to punish you for sucking and I don't play driving games much so you can bet I was punished often.
This game sits squarely in the middle of the uncanny valley at times.
I am more interested in the game lead saying the PS Plus edition would be minus a few cars and tracks to literally ten cars and one general location. http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
I'm a big reader of forums like NeoGAF and noticed a lot of people are confused about some of Driveclub's content. This is here to save the day.
I have the game and have been playing it tirelessly for days. I have no idea what you're talking about. Your comment was uneducated and hateful. Please find something better to do with your time.
I gave you a compliment on your feature. But I can't tell if your reply is serious or not.
I think there was some misunderstanding going on here is all. Now kiss and make up, do it real slow tho and maybe touch a little. Don't mind the camera it's there for educational purposes
this game is going to be better than people think. 8/10's
Only 8s? Get real 9.5 maybe 10s , easy when weather update arrives.
Someone was way, WAY off on their prediction. You'll get another shot with "The Order 1886". DriveClub weather system isn't coming until Dec. Have fun waiting for that.
Can. Not. Wait.
Again the Visuals are the only thing holding this game from receiving a bad review. Not enough options. The game looks great and attention to detail is expected for a game to be delayed for more then a year. However the reason to play this over other games which include a lot more features is going to be very hard. The game teases with great graphics however what can you do to show them off when they limit you in so many ways, good example is no pausing, so how can you admire what you see if your too busy racing?
7.5 for me.
That's the main problem of new Franchises. You can't count the hype till you know the final verdict of it.
Well, here goes risking my last bubble to honesty. Obviously, visually the game looks fantastical. One of the best looking games I've ever seen, period. won't do these in order, but, this is a sure sign of a boring racing game, particularly an arcade racing game: 3)"Don't bother driving off the track ..cut a corner...be penalized with roughly three seconds of slowdown. ...go far enough off the track, automatically reset your car onto the track... ...colliding into other players to use them as a barrier around turns...penalized heavily with a five second slowdown." This also seems to happen in the first iteration of a really really amazing looking franchise, like Dirt. The original Dirt was amazing graphics at the time, and they removed all the fun factor by not letting you leave the track slightly, accidentally or otherwise. They finally got it right with their latest - Dirt Showdown, which encouraged crashes and wrecklessness. Made for a much more fun game. I'm not saying DriveClub needs to be a demolition derby or off-road racer, just that I don't want a school teacher hovering over me telling me to stay within the lines. 2)When compared to the rest of the game, the customizable characters look like crap. Looks like a PSHome character from PS3. 5)The way the cockpit lit up from the firework looked fake and nonsensical. Like they wanted to make sure the effect was pronounced even if you're at a ridiculous distance and angle. 10)You get to do custom paint jobs, but you only get 4 that have to be shared across all cars? Again, the game has to try and kill fun with stupid iPhone style customization limitations? You're going to be racing against your own cars, so it's not like it's a ram thing. Lastly, still looks amazing: http://cdn1-www.craveonline... but isn't it weird that with all the power they obviously have to work with they still had to mirror the water droplets down the center of the car. I kinda suspected all along that this would end up being a boring, but lovely graphical showcase. I hope I'm wrong, but I still think at best it will be generic arcadey fun like the original Ridge Racer on PSX.
"Lastly, still looks amazing: http://cdn1-www.craveonline... but isn't it weird that with all the power they obviously have to work with they still had to mirror the water droplets down the center of the car." That pic is from Pcars. See imt558s post earlier in this thread..
Has any game this overhyped actually lived up to the marketing this year?
When is the review embargo up?
This game looks so good, It is unbelievable, Imagine what they can cook up later down the line!
