What hype? This game had no hype to be honest. Sure some people were excited for the game, but it wasn't hyped. Destiny is the example of a game being hyped. I got Driveclub and from my experience it's a good game, not great, but good.

You've been living on a rock or what? This game has been uber hyped since PS4 announcement. It's not a bad thing, as long it live up to the hype.

bouzebbal1297d ago

please dualshockers give us a break with these pointless articles.. i think i'll start start downvoting this website cause nothing informative comes out.
DC had no hype whatsoever, gameplay seems solid ans graphics great. i call that a recipe for a good game.


I have to agree, good but not great. Played about 20 mins so far and I'd give it a 7.5, definitely coming back to it though because it reminds me so much of pgr and it is beautiful. Picked up alien, this and 2k(plus playing Mordor) so balancing my time between these will be hard.

"played about 20 minutes and I'd give it a 7.5"

Am I seeing this wrong or did you really just type that sentence?

SniperControl1297d ago

You managed to judge a full game in 20 mins? lol

nX1297d ago

After playing for 2 hours I'd also say that it's impossible to give this game a 7, in my book it's currently a 9/10 and this could improve when I get to the super & hyper cars. It's definately the best racing game I played for years.

Magicite1297d ago

get out of your basement and look around, this is currently most awaited game (not anymore, its released already). Also best looking racing game.

MrSwankSinatra1297d ago (Edited 1297d ago )

I don't live in basement, I live in reality. There was excitement to a degree, but hyped it was not. The only time this game ever generated hype was when it was a PS4 launch title, but then it got delayed an entire year. Since then the level of hype has been pretty much nonexistent.

Foehammer1296d ago

Better check metacritic, this game got beaten to death by FH2, and Forza 5, a launch title.

chaldo1296d ago

keeps telling me driveclub server has been lost was working fine the last hour.

nX1297d ago

Worked for me as well but the digital copies have been unlocked 1,5 hours ago so that might've dealt the final blow :D
Hopefully they're back up soon, I want to create my Club :S

MaximusPrime_1297d ago

..... I have to wait until the end of this week... Grrrr

(From UK btw)

axerated1297d ago

Feel your pain bro, it'll preload tomorrow aswell so we're just gonna be staring at a locked game screen till Friday. Proper test of patience

chrissx1297d ago

I'm certain it will. The gameplay is really good and the graphics is the best a console has ever seen for a racer

MRMagoo1231297d ago

Miles better than any other racer imo and I dont like racers.

Ka7be1297d ago (Edited 1297d ago )

Don't say that! Xfans trolls will get butthurt. Look how many disagrees you have...

Anyways. Those guys made Motorstom series (PS3) and WRC on the PS2:

SO im sure DriveClub will have awesome gameplay.

TheBoy1297d ago

No reviews and the game has been released, the game is clearly mediocre and there's been zero hype, nobody is talking about this game.

Torque_CS_Lewith1297d ago

Dualshockers is. I swear if Abriael is reviewing this game then it is a guaranteed 10/10 from DS.
Never have I seen paid peddling of a game as much as DS has pimped out DC!

HeWhoWalks1297d ago

Wasn't GTA V released at midnight BEFORE its review embargo lifted? Thought so. Please stop talki.............never mind. The bubble Gods have made sure you can't continue. :)

OT: Just picked up the game. Busy with Isolation at the moment, but I will be back to this soon!

GTgamer1297d ago (Edited 1297d ago )

"Nobody is talking about the game"
the over hundred page thread on neogaf says otherwise and just the other day the whole page was filled with drive club articles.

CernaML1297d ago

The only mediocre thing here is your attempt at trolling.
