I love Driveclub regardless of it's online problems when it launched, but I don't think it is much of a loss if there is never a sequel as long as they continue to support this game. Either way I want a new MotorStorm on PS4 from Evolution next

I'd love a new Motorstorm. That's why I really hope Evolution makes it out of this okay. I love me some Motorstorm.

Yup... should have just made a MotorStorm to get their feet wet on the new hardware before trying something too ambitious for themselves. Even a MotorStorm remaster with the 3 PS3 games upgraded with a cross-over MP mode would have been enough for them to get their crap together a bit better.

I love MotorStorm, i hope they make a new one.

The online is working right. It doesn't work perfectly, but it is working. As for the article, it's obvious the author doesn't have the game;

"With the online portion of Driveclub not working for the first month, it hasn’t had a chance to build the initial online community, and with few (if any) people playing now, chances are not good that others will start playing in the future."

The author is assuming that no one is playing the game. There are plenty of people playing the game. No matter how hard some people try, DriveClub isn't going anywhere.

Meh. It's not good enough to be worth the trouble IMO. It reviewed poorly and launched poorly. It has no depth or longevity to keep people waiting around. Motostorm sure. Driveclub, no.

Project Cars will hopefully fill the void for ps4 gear heads. Server issues aside, DC doesn't come nearly close enough to satisfying proper race enthusiasts itch. It just has some cool cars that you can't do anything to and puts them in a few nicely rendered tracks. It's the Fisher-Price of AAA console racers. is it fun? For a period of time. Am I bored with it? Yup.

Speak for yourself instead of coming up with this crap about everybody else. How is an average of 72 with 20 at 8/10 or higher, poorly reviewed anyway?

13.5 million consoles
Destiny reviewed poorly, but look how many people are playing it two months later.

Just because you think the game sucks doesn't mean that it does. As a matter of fact, I don't even think you've played the game at all.

You're entitled to your opinion, but please try to remember that's all it is, an opinion.

I remember playing destiny online with 2 of my friends the day I bought it tho

Spotie1528d ago

@andibandit: And I remember playing DriveCLub offline the day I bought it. What's your point?

Still been enjoying DriveClub. Still not seeing how it's as bad as most of the reviews say they are.

u4one1528d ago

Not only have I played it, I know people who worked on it. That's how I got an advanced copy. Play a good racing game and then go back and play DC. You'll say "oh. I see now". Pretty graphics don't make a racing game good.

This is disgusting sensationalism... Is this satire?

thereapersson1528d ago

Welcome to the world of reporting on Drive Club. Where the more over-the-top knee jerk sensationalist hyperbole opinions you can produce, the "better" your "articles" are.

I don't think it's the end. It has certainly been a bumpy beginning but it has potential to be an amazing racer, still. I think evolution studios to screw it a bit.

Once they make a new motorstorm I will forgive them
