Drive Club Review | The Final Line

Graphically this game is a piece of art. Driving around with the sun in your glaring upon your eyes makes for difficult situations, but small weather conditions like that truly makes you feel part of the game. The car selection is not as deep as we would like it to be, but the amount of detail put into each vehicle is something to appreciate. A big issue with Drive Club was the launch, since then issues have been fixed to make this a very enjoyable title in the racing genre.

This is a new review structure for us and would appreciate any community feedback on it. Here is a link to our page explaining how we go about our reviews if you are curious or confused http://thefinalline.com/rev... Thank you and hope you enjoy it!

Well right off the bat, I strongly disagree with your review in saying it has a "lackluster single player." What more do you want? The Tour mode is very robust, especially with all of the new events that have been added. Also saying it can get repetitive when playing by yourself, you can pretty much insert that comment into ANY video game, racing especially. Also why is "story" even factored into this? It's a racing game for god's sake not an RPG. Story shouldn't even be factored into the score. Also, if you're reviewing this game now in it's current state, why on earth are you deducting points for launch issues that happened 3 months ago?? To me that's ridiculous.

Your overall score of 71/100 IMO is not remotely accurate and does not properly reflect the quality of this game. If Driveclub to you is only a 71, you either a.) don't care for racing games or b.) have some unrealistic idea of what a great racing game should be.

@wicked

This is his opinion of the game, it is okay to differ from yours. You do not need to attack him, just acknowledge that you disagree and move on...

typittt69992d ago

He's asking about your opinion on the new structure of the reviews. Not your opinion of his opinion of the game, which may differ from person to person.

@riverstars

Where did I attack him? I never made it personal. I never insulted him. I simply told him I disagreed and I expressed the reasons why.

riverstars86992d ago

Your last paragraph can be taken as a personal attack.

"Here at The Final Line we support that the gamers should receive a working title at the day of launch, not 3 months later."

Everyone I know said the online worked day 1 before the servers got slammed and I watched plenty of working live streams before launch day. Single player always worked also. I got it 2 weeks after launch and the online was working.

And after reading your review structures I must say they seem over complicated to a fault. Basically the structure used for each type is either too restricting for some games or shoe horned emphasis on certain features to fit a game type.

Dude, you don't get it, don't you?...This ''broken'' game has been selling twice more than their ''main competitor'', so somehow the biased media needs to downplay it as much as possible, they're hurt and it shows;)
Thank god ''it's broken'' ......if it wasn't.......

Team_Litt992d ago

Yikes! Well that escalated quickly!
So if one does not love DC then one either doesn't know anything about good racing or one has lofty expectations.

Got it.

WickedLester992d ago

@ Team litt

The problem with the review is that it doesn't attempt to qualify it's remarks. The review says the game has "lackluster single player" but goes into no detail explaining why, especially when any reasonable gamer knows that's not the case at all. Plus factoring in "story" for a racing game is just pointless.

I still need to play this!

It's not a 71/100. In My Opinion it's more like an 8.5 or 9/10. I'll add, the Reviewer has asked for feedback ..that's what She/He is getting.

You cannot censor somebody's (Constructive) feedback, nor dictate what form that feedback takes. So people here need not leap like Lemmings to the Reviewers Defence.

Nobody has (Yet) attacked Anybody. But sometimes, you just shouldn't ask, and N4G does not have a very forgiving nor easy-to-win-over Crowd.

Final Line Advice. Keep it Simple, Maintain Integrity.

FEEDBACK 101 ;/

uth11992d ago

I can live with 71.

The 3/10's and 5/10's that other reviews gave it are ridiculous though.

TheStrokes992d ago (Edited 992d ago )

An easy 8.

Fun-factor alone is quality. Like back in the day playing the 1st stage on Sega rally... trying to beat you or your mates best lap time. Add to that the graphics and polish.
IMO not every racer needs to be all about 500 cars ill probably never use and slight gear/drive-wheel etc... changes.

If you dont have fun with this game as single player and especially online then you dont deserve to review it.

Ps... im drunk.
