Well, it’s barely a game, and Dan can barely play it.
Well there you have it folks. The matter has been clarified. DriveClub is a video game. Here I was under the impression that it was compass.
Compass. LOL. That made my morning. I'm simple.
lol! have a funny bubble
Unbelievable. So this guy thinks there should be a racing line for it to be considered a 'real racing game'. There's IS a racing line ... it's called SKILL, and this video demonstrates quite clearly why a lot of people have reviewed it badly. It's just too hard for them.
Not to mention the colored flags and smoke you can see in distance indicating how sharp a turn is this combined with the mini map I mean how much hand holding does dan need.
I watched a video of someone playing this game and all the way through it he was complaining about it not handling as well as FH. After watching the entire video I was left scratching my head. He complained that other cars kept bumping into him but failed to note the obvious: Every time he made that complaint he had just smashed into the car in front and then tried to veer right or left to get around it. Every time he made that comment there was another car close on his tail. What was happening was what would happen in real life. The car behind never had time to break because after hitting the car in front he slowed quickly, which meant the car behind never had time to break. When he veered to try and overtake, the car behind (regardless of whether it hit him or not) had tried to avoid another collision or overtake him. By veering suddenly left or right he'd smashed into the car that was trying to avoid him. This would happen in real life. It's a SKILL based game which is why the Driveclub community love it. Look at this video and watch how he tries to barge his way around the course without considering how you would actually 'drive'. You have to consider what the car in front is likely to do (just like in real life); You have to consider how close the car behind you is or what racing line it's likely to take (just like in real life)
Dan… is a game reviewer. Well, he's barely a game reviewer if he can barely play an arcade racer. What you said about his complaints as they related to his driving is dead on. He was at fault so he blamed the game. It reminds me of one Planetside 2 YouTuber who will remain nameless… He accidentally shoots and runs over teammates all the time, but if someone team kills him he'll go into a rant about noobs.
the guy in the video is horrible. he plays like my 7 yr old son, smashing into the wall on every turn
Exactly GribbleGrunger the game is too hard for many, it will test you as a driver and many will not make the grade. I have made it to level 37 and loving the challenge, my mate just watches in awe as he has nowhere near the skill necessary. As I have said before if you want spoon fed victories this is not the game for you, if you enjoy your driving skills challenged this game does that.
Hold on mate. You cant just make a blanket assumption from this one guy's video that most reviewers reviewed the game poorly because it was too hard for them. Come on. DC isnt all that great. People need to deal with it.
The people complaining about DriveClub drive the cars in the game the same way they drive their cars on the road, staring at the ground. Casual gamers, look up and look ahead. Learn how to drive!
This article... is a waste of time.
DriveClub is literally the only racing where I would replay a track over and over and over just to master how to take turns just so I can get the best time on the clock and its soooooo rewarding bruhh I sat down in time trial for two straight hours trying to do better than my ghost to get 3 stars when I finally achieved it I danced and boy lemme tell you when you master hyperCars its down right insane to control that speed and hit turns on point. DC has me hooked when update 2.0 allows me to use my own music #gameover imma be playing DC hope the online is fully operational.
I do that all the time in Forza but no game has hooked me like thay since the pgr series. I would play those tracks over and over and over again.
Drive Club is a game Dan cannot play it therefore Dan is not a gamer :P
LOGIC FTW!!! LOL
Well so what if he can't play it! It's always been about the graphics anyway!
I dont understand that at all. The game looked challenging and fun and I've heard the handling is great. Not everyone whose pretty is dumb. Im living proof.
It's ok if you don't get it.. But I was on the same boat, the game looked challenging, fun and handling was supposed to be great... Then the game released and looked pretty-dumb for calling its self "the forza killer" hell they even had a pic of a blue car taking out a green car, that was damn funny! You're right not everyone who is pretty is dumb but you're pretty-dumb if you support a broken game like this.. But I understand if that's your only option And please leave my bubbles alone unless you bubble me up of course :)
Agreed and well stated, but I can't resist correcting "Not everyone whose pretty is dumb. Im living proof." to "Not everyone WHO'S pretty is dumb. I'm living proof." simply because of the irony. #RonPaull2014
I through that in deliberately. ;P Xb1ps4 I didnt touch your bubbles and thanks for the edit in your reply. Its slightly less condescending now.
Threw... yikes! The hits keep rollin' in.
@xb1ps4 "You're right not everyone who is pretty is dumb but you're pretty-dumb if you support a broken game like this.." Actually, if you can't beat DriveClub's A.I. you are pretty dumb.
I'm hear all weak.
I get it. It's just false. Jokes often work better when they have a basis in reality.
I just don't understand why you and others keep commenting on PS related articles when you don't even bother to know the content. I just can't figure you guys out. What makes you guys tick?
Damn straight it is. Also, bananas are fruit.
Driveclub is not that hard lol i mastered it in 2 days
We are just skilled 😉
Learning how to use the brakes isnt difficult ppl...
It kills me how people expect to instantly be good at it and when they suck at driving they say the game is crap. I hit a near perfect line going over 100MPH through a red corner today. The feeling was so rewarding because I had crashed into the wall a dozen times but today the breaking and seeing the best lines started to click with me.
well said. Other games give you the illusion that you can drive full throttle at all times and never need your brakes. If that's what you are used to, you will need to relearn to drive in this game
Sorry dude . I didn't mean to disagree.... Damm iPad
Sometimes...In GT, when I want to just drive really fast...I'll pick a really fast car and keep the gas all the way down the whole time. Then when I get to a curve I'll just slam into the side of a car that has already started a turn to slow down, which usually corrects me enough to make the turn no problem. Then it's floor the gas time again. The reason I mention this....it's because I know a lot of people that play this way on many racing games, because more often than not there is no penalty for doing so...whereas in real life that would likely kill both car's drivers and would be recovered from so quickly. So...what I noticed since then, is that any racing game that doesn't work on the principal of balls to the wall acceleration and cornering, people don't seem to get into, because it's just not easy sauce. Just for the record though, I do try to only do races in GT that are in the spec of the car I'm in so they actually present a challenge. Otherwise it gets boring real fast. I usually just do the above mentioned when trying to speed level a driver or make some quick cash.:)
@rainslacker- you can pull off that side-slam move on corners in drive club too, but you might get penalized for it.
That's good to know.:) Guess I'll have to weigh the penalty against the gains of doing such a maneuver.:)
The penalty doesn't bother me so much because I see it as the game rewards risk. Maybe my risks will pay 500 points, but deduct 150 for collision. I'm still ahead of where I'd be if I didn't take that risk. But a lot of people complained about the penalty system in reviews
"It drives like GTAV"ummm... what???
I don't believe it
He drives like a bafoon then says the game is lacking...lol Driveclub currently as me hooked, it starts of easy and then as a steep difficulty curve as you progress but you always feel with 1 more go you can beat the time or win the race. When the challenges are fully working this game will be super addictive for a boat load of people.
Sony declined to mention this game as the second most played game on PSN after destiny. They washed their hands of it Lol
I think they didn't wanna put attention on DC mainly because of server issues.
I just wish this game would have been judged with everything working fine instead of putting it against Forza with a broken hand so to speak. Hope Evo fixes it for the PS guys.
Just think, a few weeks and months back just about every article on this site was about how jaw droppingly amazing this game is. Now its been thrown under a bus to die an embarrassing death.
Strange reviewed badly and every1 on my ps4 friend list play drive club every day spending lots of hours including me i love driveclub im also a big fan using stock cars never have liked tuning in the 1st place driveclub is perfect for me people that complain about tuning r noobs that dont have no respect or know how these cars originally handle very well i respect these cars also the way i see it weather has still to come dlc cars r still to come even more tracks this game will just get bigger and better
"There's no background music" You just have to turn the music on from the settings A**hole!
@septic. Nobody is saying the game is perfect, or is a 9/10. But it's not a 5 either. The game maybe an arcade game, but the handling borders more on the sim side, slightly easier. But hard for many. It just goes to prove that many players, racers simply use other cars to get around corners,lol. But get punished in this game. Once the game gets patched up, more events and weather and PS+. yes all of this should have been sorted along time ago. It'll have a decent following.
Can you imagine what it'll be like when the next GT comes out and they implement a decent damage model for the cars. The days of slamming into the side of another car at 200 mph to get around that corner and jump 6 spots up the pole without trying will be over, and I bet many reviewers will say how crappy it is.
It's a great game
Driveclub is utter shit, i was so looking forward to it and what comes out, a shite arcade game that barely works.
Utter shit^ ?? Have you gone full.... Anyhow , I'll say this , I can't remember once in my gaming past of bygone days a game to be butt hurt , trolled upon and hated for.... being too hard(wow) for dare I say , the casual gamer era that has come upon us these past years , little children (rich) playing on phones and stuff and then calling them self gaming journalists or dare they even say commentators... Non of which they deserve to be , this game is incredible , offers a challenge to hard core gamers for sure , the online is wonderful now it is nearly up and running , and the weather will make this even more wonderful , add the season pass and we gamers have a lot to look forward too , casual pussies move on....
Its a great game, it takes skill which a lot people lack these days.
The driving actually feels authentic in this game im impressed not even Gran Turismo really pulled that one off.
The AI in this game is horrible
