Issues aside, Evolution's racer can be drop-dead gorgeous.
Driveclub is an insanely beautiful game, I would highly recommend watching these direct feed uncompressed videos to get a better idea of how good it looks. Compressed footage just doesn't this game justice. http://www.gamersyde.com/ne...
Best graphics of the 2014
Vanishing of Ethan Carter)
Ethan Carter is a beautiful game. It sounds really fun too. Can't wait til it comes to ps4.
No doubt best looking driving game I ever played!
why are we still posting screenshots and talking about the graphics like the game ain't been out for two months now? Literally, since the game got announced that's all we've been seeing - "UNREAL GRAPHICS!" - not much else to talk about or something? Can we still post screenshots of Call of Duty AW? Ryse? Ryse was pretty "unreal" /sarcasm
Plus it's dynamic as hell, so you've always got another car, corner, angle, different weather circumstances, lighting, etc. Lightning won't always strike on the same tower in every race for example, so the game keeps on giving visual sweetness the more you play. And people also feel the game deserves more positive attention since its launch debacle. I'm one of those people.
Yay, I just picked it up recently and it really is stunningly beautiful in motion, and at rest. Incredible visuals. The racing is fun too...the sense of speed is something that's not mentioned often in reviews, but despite being a 30 fps racer, it FEELS faster than many 60 fps racers I've played.
Didn't Gamingbolt's sister site, Dualshockers, already posted a similar graphic piece on DC like yesterday? I swore I saw it somewhere. News, graphics is only a part of the equation to a game. Is it me or 95% of the DC articles tend to ignore other aspects of the game and graphics articles made up the majority of the news or gossip for the game?
Ah Wizard_King. PC fans will say this about every game they get, they said it about The Vanishing of Ethan Cater, they said it about every Crysis and they sang it for days on end with Project Cars. PC fans are worse than Xbox & Sony fans for it. what comples somone to go out of their way to stomp on someone's parade? So what if they think it's the best looking Racing game ever? What are you the graphics police? Does it disgust you when they say that? The "Best" anything comes with a bunch of prejudice and biases. It's their opinion that it's the best looking racer and it's yours that its Project cars.
I cant beleive how hard some people are trying to make DC relevant by focusing solely on its graphics. Lets face it, it has not - and will not - live up to the pre-release hype it generated. Solid game, but not a 10/10, or even a 9/10. Its a good game, in 8/10ish territory.
so is n4g selling driveclub? looks like it. or at least getting paid to run these articles over and over and over. driveclub club is beautiful eh? you know beauty is only skin deep right? the game was pretty at launch. a better deserving article would be the game working properly. show vids of people connecting to online and racing please.
"so is n4g selling driveclub?" I wouldn't be surprised...
I agree. The game is visually stunning. But seriously, 30fps in a racer. No thank you, ill pass.
indeed i have the game and sometimes i crash by not paying attention because of how beautiful the graphics is lol
Can you actually believe that this sorts of result came out in the FIRST year of the PS4? Dat Sony engineering LOL
exclusive developers are in the different league
So what is the criteria for a "duplicate story"? Can we all just start using N4G as a forum for posting screenshots of our favourite games?
See..?, beautiful pictures are always enjoyable, no matter how often we see it, the problem is, it will still magically hurt someone for being a PS exclusive, and managed to annoyed them somehow..
You are correct and clearly very smart. If loads of articles popped up showing screenshots of a multiplatform game I would LOVE every single one of them, but this one "magically hurts". You would think the fact that I own a Playstation 4 and DriveClub myself would numb the pain, but it doesn't. That's what makes it magical I suppose.
Only if that game is the best looking game ever made in its genre
@Volkama Know how to fix not seeing screenshots of driveclub on N4G? Don't click on it.
This article links to GamingBolt. That is reason enough not to click it without worrying about the particulars of the content. I understand the sentiment though, there is no point me protesting these articles. The propaganda campaign is bull, but it is not my duty to fight it. I shall endeavour to ignore them from now on.
Exactly. Well said. http://media.giphy.com/medi... Instead of trolling ps4 threads with irrelevant PC to console comparisons.
Easily best looking racing game ever without question!!
Only (possible) on Playstation!
*only on ps4 A decent pc would easily be able to run this game
But for now theres no pc able to run it....ever
Not knocking the PC or trying to dismiss it's strengths. But I've never seen a PC racing game that looks as good as Driveclub. There might be one out there, but I haven't seen it. So "a decent PC could run this easily" is a bit of a stretch IMO.
Astronaut, project cars on ultra looks like real life
Post a video I can compare it to. This is Driveclub. http://www.gamersyde.com/hq...
I love Project CARS, but Driveclub still takes this.
For like 2g's.
@All_Consoles I thought project car on PC looks incredible. Played it for a while. But when I played Drive Club, the graphic on drive club currently is unmatched for any platform in its genre. You can compare drive club to any current racing game and pretty much the consensus will say that Driveclub is visually the better one.
PC fanboys getting salty because their $2K PC cant match the best looking racer on a $400 console X'D That's the power of console exclusives, optimization can go a long way.
@Clunkyd PC fanboys aren't salty at all, because our "2k PC" can easily match the best looking racer on a $400 console. We just don't have the retail software available. Just because Driveclub isn't on pc hardly means our computers aren't capable of that level of graphics. And just to clarify, Project Cars looks better however it's not available at retail yet so it isn't a fair example. You're correct about optimization, it does go a long way, but that goes both ways. To think that a properly optimized title on PC wouldn't at bare minimum MATCH a properly optimized ps4 title is really just absurd. I say this as the proud owner of nearly every console since the 3rd generation including all current systems, and an excellent gaming pc. All this hating on others because their platform of choice doesn't line up is pretty ignorant.
Yes. though i wish it looked like that in gameplay. I kinda hope they can still add some extra anti aliassing, like in the photomode.. But great game.
The tracks whereyou are moving uphill and its stormy with snow on both sides make you think youre driving to mammoth mountain or lake tahoe ski resorts.
Does the title mean that Evolution used the Unreal Engine for this game?
I f-ing love this game... now.
Can someone tell me why my drive club doesn't download in the background? I bought it on the PS store, installed it, but it won't complete the download in the background. I've been stuck at 8/15 GB installed and downloaded. It starts to download bits when I do some racing.. Do I have to do it in rest mode or will I have to race for a few hours?
To me it did it alone, when i was in the select track menu i saw how many minutes were left before i could enter that track. You checked in the installed application thing of the PS4 the progresses? On my PS4 it downloaded in rest mode, while using the console and while using the game, so i don't know.
Great looking game but from purely a gameplay standpoint it doesn't come close to Forza Horizon 2 or Forza 5.
Actually, when it comes to AI, attention to detail on tracks, and physics / gameplay it is better. Of course GT stomps both into the mud. Just like killzone 2 in the last generation the (deserved) hype about graphics actually takes attention away from amazing gameplay. Driveclub would be a 9/10 game with last gen forza graphics and no weather. With these graohics, and after weather - unsurpassed.
"Actually, when it comes to AI.." No. Anyway, each to their own. I'm gonna start sounding like many of the usual culprits on here if I continue offering my opinion on DriveClub so enjoy as you please.
We all know your're a Xbox fan. Talking about gameplay when this thread has nothing to do with. Trying to make yourself feel better by bringing in Forza where no one gives a damn about. Can we ever get a Driveclub thread where Forza isn't mentioned?
Funny how most people bring up gameplay, I can tell you that 98% of those people mentioning gameplay never actually played it. I got a wheel and the game is really surprising with a wheel. Its no sim but very fun.
Kid is in full MS troll mode 24/7. This is how bad it is, i cant stop laughing over this. http://n4g.com/news/1637900...
oh my ... The delusion is strong on this one. Nda ... really !? LOL
OMG LOLOLOL, JESUS!!!!! My mind cannot even comprehend the idiocy of that post. whats's even funnier are the posts he made a little lower in that thread.
Lmao now i can say i read it all on N4g.. Poor guy instead of loling at him, we should feel bad for him :c
"GPU in the Xbox one is superior to any GPU on the market today and will be the blueprint for future GPU's for years to come" AAAAAAAAAHHhhh Ha HA!! That one is the best. They already pulled the chip apart and looked at it under a microscope and all they found is a much smaller weaker GPU than what is in the PS4 and even that is weak compared to a mid range PC card today. Man, some of the fanbois will believe anything.
well then lamer tamer sonys technology and technological superiority must be far beyond what any pc gpu and cpu creator can make looking at first gen ps4 games, and HUMA tech and gpu compute hasn't even come into play yet, it should be scary for pc users, I think sony creates their platforms with lesser specs to embarrass the pc industry, cause I know if their gauntlets were taken off and sony was just to make a platform like they can they would annihilate pc in every way easily
It bugs me why the rain is lit up so high... headlights light up rain but only lower and in front of the car. The way the rain is lit up in front of the windshield is inaccurate as headlights aren't shining upwards like that. The rain shouldn't be so bright in the drivers line of sight like that. Very annoying.
Would anyone like to imagine what this game would look on an oled tv?
I've seen the graphics in person while playing the Demo at target, and the graphics look great, but it's not very impressive. It might be the lack of 60fps.
It would be easier to believe you if there was a demo available for it at target.
For everyone hating on the "connectivity" issues that DriveClub has, obviously you haven't picked up Gran Turismo 6 in a while. Playing online and getting connected in that game is a nightmare, and DriveClub is far better than that now.
In my opinion GT6 just wasn't fun after a while, I certainly can't say the same for Driveclub!
GT6 is very flat, souless game. They need to add the variation of challenges and uniqueness that game developers like PGR4, GRID and DriveClub have done in their games.
I month ago there was nothing but hate for this game, now it's all love lol
Because it's a solid game, so it deserves it.
This game is top notch fun. Visually not even seen on a pc racer especially its weather system. As of right now, driveclub has surpassed all current racers in the visual aspects but the racing part will never change only cause every racing game is just racing on a track.
DriveClub is a great game and really beautiful, don't listen to the critics.
It's awesome, people who play Codemaster's Grid 1 and Dirt 2 and 3 will love this game. It's a very fun game.
I don't have a problem with calling this the best looking racing game to date. I have a problem with you saying it's the best game. This game only wins one category and that's graphics, everything else it loses. This game cannot be compared to Forza horizon 2 but Forza 5. DC non-open world circuit racing game FMS5 non-open world circuit racing game So for dynamic weather and better graphics you forgave 60FPS... Quote: imt558 "1. Each car HAS DIFFERENT behavior. I mean, for example, Venom or McClaren P1 are total different cars in same category with totally different handling and acceleration and top speed and drifting capabilities." Yes, based on one model. (in code) Venom handling 8, acceleration 10 McClaren P1 handling 7, acceleration 8 Can you set those cars up for drifting. NO! When you pick a car that's what you get a preset car. Sounds like a Arcade game to me. "2.Dynamic weather fully affect handling, braking and acceleration because road is slippery. Especially if you are behind another car, you have less air resistance and you go faster." "Coming so soon after DriveClub's own weather update, it makes for an interesting comparison; Forza Horizon 2's visuals are never quite the measure of Evolution's spectacular achievements, though they do have a more pronounced effect on how the game plays." http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... Like i said," very little effect on cars performance." "3. So what if there is no set-ups. Driveclub is SKILL BASED RACER! There is no tuning, no upgrades; it is just you, the car, and the track." Your right just like Outrun 3D or PGR with batter graphics. 4. A.I. can be pretty aggressive, especially if you are driving vs. A.I. on Legend difficulty. Yes just like a Arcade game like Outrun, "Pick your race! , you picked medium!" , "Pick your car, you picked Venom!", "Get ready!" , "GO.". Not alot of SKILL there. 5. Well, Xbone fans doesn't know that Driveclub has HUUUGE environments with sick draw distance. " This one is the funniest out of all of your comments because draw distance is not what is being talked about. So what if you have a long draw distance and objects like mountaintops cliffs, train tracks, two way traffic, if you can't cross over off the track and experience it. The background scenery is useless and their only for cosmetic purposes only (drive past and look at) in FH2 you can go there!. Yes this is the better looking of the two games but it is not the better game. that's why FH5/FH2 are the better game. The sacrifice for better graphics was not detrimental to the rest of the games experience.
You do realize this game is leaning more towards Arcade-sim race fans? Right? It's for people who loved PGR4 and Grid, hell the developers said they took huge inspiration on both of those games. It's a great game and if you're looking for something more like the forza series then look elsewhere.
Shut-up, dumbass! What one model? What no drifting? WTF you're talking about? http://i.imgur.com/HD4xnHm.... http://i.imgur.com/VHnwf5U.... Btw. Venom doesn't have better handling than McLaren P1 in any possible way. Better shut up, man! Really didn't know that you can be so stupid! Dayum! Every your opinion based on DC is GOD DAMN WRONG!! What no skill? Do you know what driving skill in driving game even means?? Quote : Like i said," very little effect on cars performance." Very little you said. Here is how car behaves on dry and wet road ( McLaren P1, one of the most stable car in game ) Dry : https://www.youtube.com/wat... Wet : https://www.youtube.com/wat... You confirmed that you are dumbass! You better stay on MrX's blog, dude!
I think IMO to beat this bar that has been set by Evolution your game has to have visuals that surpasses this game at 1080p/60fps.
