Driveclub, game of the year, or so at least one trashy website called it before all these reviews started to hit. Oh the irony

PCGamingNoobs1141d ago

Why does it explain the embargo? i could understand but what about the free version that EVERYONE gets to try. Its one game that reviews are pretty pointless because most people can make up there own mind for a change without spending a penny.

Games that are ancipated to be mediocre (or atrocious in the case of EA) get late embargos. Ubisoft, EA and Activision do this all the time.

Ooohh if the world worked the way it does in your head

Business is business they'll make more money if gamers aren't cancelling preorders

Last 4 big releases. destiny and Driveclub both had embargos until after released.

While Forza Horizon 2 and Shadow of Mordor lifted their embargos about a week before released.
I'll let you figure that one out pertaining to why the later 2 scores so great while DC and Destiny kind of Flopped with critics. The old saying, if you don't have anything to hide...then show it, comes to mind.

@S_D_F_Repellent

if there was something to hide, then there wouldn't be a free version for Ps+ members. Cause majority of people are going to try it for free first before buying.

user3672721141d ago (Edited 1141d ago )

@Utalking2me...

The free version came out the same day as the regular version...it is not like a demo that came out a couple weeks in advance like what MS did with Forza Horizon 2.

The people that had their mind set on the game and already prepurchased the full version and predownloaded the $60 digital version are what the embargo is basically targeting. Sony got their money already from those customers just like how Activision and Bungie got that record sale launch for their game.

To my knowledge, studios get mock reviews of their titles when they are close to completion. This is a sort of professional "user testing" for them that allows them to guage where they are going to end up. If there are less then optimal findings in those mock reviews they can issue an embargo while they address some of the glaring issues. Those issues could be technical or gameplay related. Usually an embargo is not a good sign - though not always a harbinger of failure.

wow I can't believe people are disagreeing with you.

He only put 1 " < ". He should have used atleast 5. That's why he is getting disagrees.

badz1491141d ago

because he's a TROLL and what he's trying to say is DriveClub doesn't have the gameplay, just graphics, which is an obvious sign of a TROLL because as far as gameplay is concerned, DC nails it!
