From what we've been shown, there is every reason to be excited.
Driveclub's amazing! Really a beautiful game (I wish the online worked better, sure, but most things in it are quite nice)
Back like 10-15 years ago there used to be like 20+ different racing games. Everyone cared more about having fun then mind blowing graphics. If you have a PS4 Driveclub is probably a good driving game that could have been better. There doesn't just have to be one good game of each kind....that is foolish. This game looks like it could be pretty good.
and this game won't get hated on even though its a linear track racer just like driveclub. gee I wonder why.
What a ridiculous comment. Pls enlighten yourself. http://www.gamesradar.com/w...
i'm just saying Driveclub got crapped on for not being open world. If this game gets a pass then there is definitely a double standard going on.
@Tomahawk Really ? You're saying thats the reason DC got bad reviews ? Looks like you're using that as a freepass to make yourself feel better about DC with relation to PCars. It makes no sense Driveclub got crapped on for not having any 'soul', not being linear. That was merely a comparison to Forza Horizon 2, and as a game on the competing console at the same time, the open world certainly worked in Forza's favour. That's all it was, nothing more. The open world thing is inapplicable here. Driveclub isn't sim or arcade, but it is inbetween. I haven't played the game (really want to) , but from all the reviews (critic and user) I've read, their issues seem to be: -The game has incredible fidelity, but it lacks 'soul' or substance. It doesn't go arcade or sim, but somewhere in between, and while the driving experience is fantastic, it falls off for not having depth in either way. - Getting punished because of braindead AI (this seems to be the most objective criticism, the other points will have lots to do with personal preference) - ends up being a shallow experience that doesn't keep you hooked till the end (basically from the first point) Project Cars isn't released yet. If it doesn't get badly reviewed, it won't be because of bias, as you are implying. It will be because it will have turned out a great simulator. It has some really great visuals and audio. It has a crazy amount of depth in terms of everything simulation related. The driving experience is very intense too.
what are you trying to say about Gran Turismo then i believe that is also a "linear track racer", i think its called professional race tracks tho.
DriveClub is hated on for being barebones! When was the last time you saw a track racer with only 50 cars and 98% from just one region? DC is judged for the content it lacks for the type of racing game it is. Heck even Blur of all games had more cars than DC and they stuffed in some other "exciting" gameplay elements in their tracks. DC focused on non essentials like individual AI for 10 000 flamingos (What the heck for??) instead of giving the racing AI less robotic behaviors. Let's not forger the 1 000 000 unique trees instead of less than half the cars found in the last PGR which Sony fans want so desperately to call DC a successor of. The only reason DC gets points docked off for not being an open world game is because the lack of content and variety it brings may have been made up for if they had made it open world and let gamers marvel at the trees and individual birds.
said-same-thing-about-DRIVECLU B we-all-how-that-turned-out.
yes driveclub was worth the wait for me, so i'll probably get project cars and enjoy it. bring on the hate! bitches
I don't hate your choice (enjoy). Game on!

I'm in the PCars early alpha testing. It's FAR better of a game than dclub. There are little small graphical bugs here and there, track textures and some replay camera positioning elements that are the type of things they're polishing up. The core game is done and it's awesome.
It's been delayed two years now, it'll probably never see the light of day.
Um no, the game has not been delayed two years. Just another person spouting un-informed nonsense on N4G. Smh.
according to this it was supposed to come out in March 2013, now it's delayed to March 2015. That's two years according to my math.. http://n4g.com/news/1122484...
It was delayed early on because it was originally supposed to be a PC and last gen racer. When the decision to drop old consoles and build for next gen consoles was made, it added a great deal of time to the development process.
The thing is though that racing games have a very small window of relevance. Everyone's confused as to why Driveclub took so long. Well, initially it was supposed to be a launch game but they had issues with the menus so they had to delay it to redesign them. As such it missed launch. Because it was no longer a launch game it had to be alot more (quality wise) so they took more time to up the graphics and add more stuff (fixing menus takes a while but I don't think it takes 11 months.) It needed that time to be relevant again. Now it's plagued with other stuff but that's beside the point. The point is, we no have Driveclub, Forza and the crew coming soon for everybody's racing fix. No ones gonna need Project cars when it comes out.
There's usually multiple racing games every year on any system.
No, games like Driveclub and The crew are not sims, where as Project CARS is a sim. Sims are relevant far longer than arcade racers like NFS, Driveclub, Forza Horizon, The Crew etc., because the market is saturated with arcade style racers. There is a big difference between the two. There are only two sim racers on consoles at the moment, the GT series and Forza. Project CARS is a welcomed edition, and the wait wont hurt it at all.
Project Cars, what an inventive title *rolls eyes*
It's an acronym for "Community Assisted Racing Simulator."
Steam sale one day lol.
Delays upon delays upon delays and dam more delays what is going on with ps4 im waiting for a decent game past 1year comon man!!!
It's a coward move by them because they should know how many people want a proper racing game. And they had their Day One DlC already. The delay was just business.
the game is good although i dont play racing sims ,i love graphics none the less the car model is exceptional in the build that i saw the world stage is hd grand turismo ,Its not as fancy as driveclub which i think is a shame although things change and the build # was 8**** something ,I think this crossgen development has to stop anyway good game none the less
Only slightly disappointed since I was really anticipating it's release next month and I want this game to be the one I'd get when I finally purchase a PS4 console..
Project Cars looks a really great game. I'm still waiting on PS+ DriveClub, I'm waiting for this to be a really(overall) great game also. I'm sure it will be. ; )
i have no clue why people are so excited about Project Cars. looks like just another mediocre racing game. i'm not a fan of Driveclub and think that game is awful as well but Project Cars looks even more dull and boring than Driveclub. Project Cars doesn't even look like a real next gen game from what i've seen of the PS4 version. people get excited over average games makes me laugh tbh. mainstream gamers lol.
Eh, I don't think you guys know what Project Cars really is. I think like most of the games this year.. you guys are hyping a game up again. How many of you actually play the game? Like DriveClub, PC is (to me from what I've been playing so far) just another racer. Yes, the visuals, sound and handling is nice, but if you cut that out and get down to the meat and potatoes .. there's really nothing new that PC is actually offering. There's nothing that it's offering to make it stand out or to give it its own identity. For one, the AI needs some major work, man. Now, before you go into your fan-boyish rage, please understand that this is my opinion and you may not feel the same as I do. IMO, Project Cars, like DRiveClub, may not be offering anything new, but that doesn't mean they aren't fun, good looking games to waste a couple of hours on. I'd give PC a 7.8/10
Am I the only one around here actually satisfied with DRIVECLUB? By the way, I wish someone would make a racing game with made-up car brands so that they could have realistic damage. I hate how cars are like tanks in most driving games. I like how GTA IV does damage, but the cars seem like they're made out of one giant piece of tin foil. If Bumpers are plastic, they will damage differently than the metal parts of the car.
Nice how in the headline all systems posted except Wii-U....bias much ??
