Project CARS is a beautiful racing game, but is it on par with the game that set the bar, Driveclub?
no, absolutely DC looks miles better and better
I mean. A horse can only be so dead.
Clickbait gaming sites: "CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!"
lol!! well said
last 2 games that made me drop my jaw over visuals: Last of Us & Drive Club.I think its a given that most games that come out nowadays on consoles and PC are pretty much gorgeous, but not many have those awe moments for me.My first real awe moment of last gen was coming out of the tunnels on High Speed ring in the rain on GT5. I've never seen light bloom done so elegantly in a game.GT6 didn't even nail those effects as well as gt5.My first awe moment this gen was Drive Club's weather. Simply put, no, Drive Club looks better.imo. But i'm more of a sim racer so pCars is the better game overall to me.
on ultra setting pc it might but as far as PS4 games go, short answer is NO.
Can't wait for the star citizen vs no mans sky graphics article. I am not even gonna even attempt to criticize drive club lol I rather keep my account. Drive club is better by only a mile :)
It might look better, but its not better as a Game lol
Depends on what you what type of racing you want. Driveclub hooks you better because it's all about points, and being better than your friends and the community, not unlike Call of Duty for instance. It has that "just one more time" factor in it that is very addicting. Whereas Project Cars is a slower paced simulation game, that is meant to replicate the career of a real driver. I like Driveclub better, but I am enjoying Project Cars for what it is. I think it's the best Gran Turismo game since GT4 at least, cuz that's basically what it is.
I have ProjectCARS and Driveclub and Project Cars blows it out of the water. Very impressive game.
two different styles of racer should not compare imo
opinions differ from gamer to gamer. whos to say that a game that you dont consider better then the other isnt better to some one else
Driveclub has some flaws but the visuals are not it. The game is beautiful !!!!
The video in the article is not from the final build of Project Cars, that video is a few months old already. But I think your statement is still right, look at this recent comparison from both games on PS4 https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I think project cars did the night time better. The light from the headlights is much more realistic. But overall the graphics in drive club are better. I just wish you could steal the lighting at night from Project Cars and slip em in Driveclub. Lol
There's just a lot more attention to detail on the car models in DC.
Well at least I could play Project Cars when I bought it. I just went out and bought DriveClub and can't even play it, all I get is a CE-32937-4 error when trying to download a patch..
Ive had DC since say one and besides the online component ive never had a problem to this day.. i see people trying v hard to downplay this game.. O.t project cars in ultra looks good but not as good as DC.. just look at the foliage in both games and ud understand
You can lookup this error and driveclub and find others who have had the same issue. I should note i can play it without the patch but i cannot play online without it
Yeah. DriveClub with it's HD textures looks "Miles better" than a game that uses 4k textures. For those of you who might be a bit slow... that's 4x the level of detail. And before the knee-jerk response saying "That's PC! You can't compare PC to PS4!" Well that's BS since many people on this site talked about if they should get the PC or PS4 version, so it's all fair game. And perhaps you guys didn't notice, there's a reason why all the comparisons you're seeing between Project Cars and DriveClub seem to only focus on weather effects. Of course that's because if they were to compare the textures, physics, AI, detail drop-off at distance, lighting, and shadows... Project Cars would be the clear winner. Project Car's developers didn't spend 4 months focusing on cool looking water on the windshield because racing in the rain is something that rarely happens in professional motorsports
So project cars is 4k on ps4? Cool story bro.. It's a comparison of two ps4 games if you didn't understand that.
Texture resolution is far from the only thing that defines visuals in a game just so you know.
4k is not 4x HD. Its around 2x actually. Resolution is measured in height, HD 1920x1080, the value is 1080. Wich stands for the resolution measured in height. Same for 4k, (UHD) 3840x2160, so 2160 for the height. 2160 is the exact double of 1080. Its not 4x....
I've a question I hear ppl go on, and on about DC gameplay being lackluster What exactly makes it lackluster to you ppl? I mean its a driving game what exactly do you expect a driving game do? Or do you guys just find it fun to drive off road running down little creatures for pts? I mean PC is also a driving game, and it's gameplay is simply just that driving. I love DC for its arcade style exhilarating driving, and I know I'm going to love the SIM style driving. As for looks this is a stupid question because one is an exclusive that focuses purely on its intended system while the other is multiplatform, and can never fully utilize the platforms it's on 100% unless it's PC.
there is no reply to that apart from DC is a good game albiet arcade only and it being ps4 only. if it was on PC i can bet you now n4g users will be jumping up and down claiming this is great for thier sli/xfire titan 4k etc etc
haha really ? and you know what is even funnier not even a Ultra settings on Project Cars can surpass Driveclub visuals/style/atmosphere, and to give you goosebumps PC gamers newer games will look even better. :D
"and you know what is even funnier not even a Ultra settings on Project Cars can surpass Driveclub visuals" Lol! https://www.youtube.com/wat... Project Cars Alpha stage -- DriveClub final product
yeah like he said Driveclub is way better looking, and the back drops in P C are very bland almost PS2 graphics
I don't think people understand what a ultra-settings PC really is! If u think for 1 second that our beloved PS4 is pushing more than a high-end PC on Ultra-settings you might be a mindless fanboy!
Lol.. looks good .. yeah.. plays good yeah... but goosebumps..no..b#tch please, especially not at 30fps
can you tell the difference?.(: https://www.youtube.com/wat... driveclub only has better Weather effect that's all.
Disagree. The reflections in Project Cars don't look quite as natural, ditto the lighting. Driveclub's dynamic daylight cycles really lead to some spectacular looking scenes. The lighting also appears "softer" for lack of a better term, which gives it a very realistic appearance.
Driveclub actually looks miles better in that video... The scenery etc all looks much better.
Bull. The entire game looks better.
Maybe take a look at the full comparison video, not just the footage you stole from it to make that 30 sec vid. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
the Pagani footage says it all DC blows it away in terms of quality but lets be fair this is a group of industry standard game makers vs an up and coming studio who in the past have only used other peoples engines to make there game and never made there own. Not to mention exclusive vs multiplatform.
People that say Drive club looks way better are just being fanboys. Look at their comment histories. Driveclub does look better, but not miles better. And it isn't as clean (free of jaggies) or as smooth in terms of framerate as Project Cars.
That's not being a fanboy that called exaggeration. Doesn't matter if they say "way better" or " miles better" bottom line its look better.
@starchild did you really just go there? framerate? the framerate is the biggest culprit of Project Car's performance. they are all over the place. DC have it locked down to 30fps 99% of the time and your comment history shows that you're an avid PS hating fanboy!
It does look better and I don't even like Driveclub. Personally think its a very mediocre game. But by the video posted Driveclub looks better. Not a case of being a fan boy its a case of say what you see... which DC looks better than PC in that video.
Nothing is allowed to look better than Driveclub till another Playstation exclusive racer releases. lol. This isn't the place to ask this question.
Other racers are allowed to look better than Driveclub, but they just don't. It's pretty clear that this bothers you quite a bit.
Or there might not be a racer that looks better than DriveClub. That's also a possibility
This isn't the place? I guess, youtube, random Disqus comments on various sites and blogs isn't the place either.. i think the entire internet might not be the place.I think the only good place to ask this question is in your bedroom... since your opinion is the only one that matters apparently.
Had me rolling! +bub
I died reading this. Lol.
@theFro talk about being butthurt! who says they can't look better? Project Cars did it but only if going Ulta and 4k on the pc but as far as the PS4 is concerned, DC does look better.
Hell no! @Fro You jelly?
People really care more about the graphics thn the gameplay lol..feel sorry for you guys.
For what it's worth I much prefer Driveclub's gameplay too. But that's just my personal preference. I know they're going for a more sim style racer, but something about the controls just felt off. Forza is sim as well and I much prefer the overall "feel" of the cars in that game compared to PC.
Good thing DriveClub has both
Driveclub plays incredibly. Try it.
Who stated they cared more? Can the not talk about one feature at a time without being told they "care more" about it then other features? I mean...your on this damn article and its ONLY about if it looks better....what brought you here? I mean...you should be only caring about the "gameplay" bro.... If I'm in a article talking about multiplayer games, it doesn't mean I "care more" about it, merely that I'm in an article talking about multiplayer games....... Don't assume so much bud, we all don't just sit around watching games vs playing them. Craziest thing....we can talk about graphics AND like gameplay...
People deflect a lot. If this was a comparison about ryse vs sone other game he'd not be uttering any of this nonsense. ......the pain is very apparent
Probably because arguing gameplay is far more fruitless than graphics. Personal experiences are very subjective. It's not that people care about graphics more. It's interesting though: the same people who were all about graphics when Xbox 360 had superior multiplatform titles last generation don't care now. PC gamers bring up graphics and frame rate a lot--still do. When the shoe's on the other foot everyone changes their stance (PlayStation gamers included)? You could at least pretend to be more objective.
Everyone's gonna have their opinions on which game looks better. On which platform. But what is interesting is whenever PC games when in these comparison articles........they point to games from the Sony console. In the case of Project cars cs. DC..........opinions again vary. You don't see articles comparing Project Cars to Forza or PGR.
Doesn't most of the old PGR dev team work for Evolution now? So that would be Driveclub. I'll take Forza over PC, personally.
"Doesn't most of the old PGR dev team work for Evolution now?" some of them. Many of the PGR team formed playground with ex codemasters staff. PGRs DNA is very much alive and kicking in FH2. makes sense as an xbox franchise anyway. I could never see DC as a succesor to PGR. It doesnt have bizzare games signature speudo real-ish-arcadey handling, with a slight 'rubbery-ness' to it. It had a kind of deftness and informativeness to the handling, that DC doesnt have in its cars). FH2 has that but I feel they made the steering a touch too light. but that deftness is still there and feel familiar when setting your car to catch some air time over a golf course....FH2 players will know what im talking about ;)
@quiddd "You don't see articles comparing Project Cars to Forza or PGR." WHAT? http://n4g.com/news/1722063... here you go
Lol dont u bring facts here!!!!
AAAAAhhhhhhhhhhhhh............ .damn it.......my bad
No way in the f*cking hell!
Of course not how can you even ask such a stupid question?
driveclub is the best looking racer ever period.
Honestly no game looks more worthy of being called next-gen as Driveclub, including all genres, being that The Order also looks apart from the rest. This annoys SOME PC gamers alot because their very expensive and powerful machines have nothing as impressive to show of as some console exclusives. Some better resolutions and frame rate are the only things still saving some face of the most radical PC gamers, a good example of that being project cars and the Witcher, but still those games don't look as good as some console exclusives. More powerful hardware =/= best looking games. And yes, I know I'll be bombarded with disagrees, but this is my opinion as a gamer, PC and consoles.
Driveclub is the racing version of the order. Nice looking game with bland gameplay
That's such a bunch of nonsense. Driveclub looks fantastic, but nowhere near what you are hyping it to be. A lot of fanboys overhype the graphics because it didn't score well so they switch to focusing on the graphics and making it sound like the second coming. http://image.noelshack.com/... http://imageslgmr.lazygamer... http://images.gamersyde.com... http://i.ytimg.com/vi/sjljy... http://static5.gamespot.com... Like I said, Drive Club is a really nice looking game, but it's not nearly as impressive as you are trying to make it sound. It doesn't beat every other game in graphics, not even close. When it's not raining or snowing it can sometimes even look fairly unimpressive to me. Driving games have always had somewhat more photorealistic graphics than other genres simply because they are trying to mimic real life racing and because they are the very definition of linear. You are restricted to a track and developers only have to make things look good from your perspective on the track.
I think the gameplay is fantastic, so much that it's the only game I platined ever, not because I wanted the platinum but because I played it so much it eventually happened. I'm not hyping it either, it IS the best looking game, and of course the courses with direct sun light will look more bland, as in real life a desert looks more bland than a rain forest, so I don't see your point there. I made a video with all the different weathers in a single track edited in a way that the weather swaps in the exact same position as the car is going, and it looks awesome no matter the weather, check it for yourself and show me any racing game that looks this good from a direct gameplay perspective as in my video! Driveclub doesn't look better because of it's resolution or frames per second, it looks better because of the crazy attention to detail, there's even flys surrounding the fish statue when the weather is sunny, how crazy is that?... https://www.youtube.com/wat... Postint static pictures of a racing game is stupid btw, I don't play a racing game with my car froze in time, the speed sensation is crucial to the graphics feeling of the game.
