Released on October 7th 2014 in North America Driveclub by Evolution Studios was essentially a broken game. Between the server issues to the elusive free title on PS plus where are we now?
its on sale right now for fourty bucks so I think I mite get it but I've been saying that to my self for a month now. still maybe todays the day I pick it up.
No matter how successful it is right now, internet pro people will still make it look bad because they are happy with a game that is full of cars that is like it is made of plastic. Project Cars? 60FPS? so? Does it look as good as DC? Oh yeah come at me DC haters. Don't be shy to disagree :)
Let the man incite an internet riot. Just sit back and watch the disagrees roll in.
Really get a PGR feel from DC.. and yeah most are going to hate on this game until the end of time or until they release the ps+ glorified demo.. such a shame.
Most will hate it past that point as well lol. smh people dont know what they are missing.
Anyone looking for a great arcade racer will love Driveclub. The comparisons to Forza setup some very unrealistic expectations. With all the focus on multiplayer, Sony really should have made sure it worked out of the box. This is especially true given the delays. Just about all goodwill that may have helped was killed when the promised PS+ edition was indefinitely delayed.
Got it coming to me in the mail, only paid $10 for it too from the retail Sony Playstation site. Waiting for BloodBorne to come up. You guys want to know when PS+ Driveclub will come out? Same day I get the full copy of the game! j/k I have no right to complain about PS+...ever.
It's a great game to me. I actually enjoyed it.
Best thing about the game was the rain imo. Very few customization features. Rented it. Might play it again if they ever release the PS Plus version that was announced in 2013
PGR didnt have to many customization and that didnt stop from being the best Arcade racer last gen, imo.
Its a great game. Give it a try.
Really n4g? Lol. How can you keep glorifying this game. Released a year late riddled with problems, update delays and so on. Even if working perfectly fine it's nothing more than a graphics piece of a game. The gameplay just isn't there. The replay just isn't there. This whole drive all over the world with a club/crew of friends challenging there scores isn't there. Enter forza horizon 2 that comes out with cars every month, alreadyghave you 200+ damn cars. Even gave you a free version to play. People keep trying to revive this game, it came and it went. If it was so great you would actually not have to make up articles to keep it in the news. This game was a huge disappointment end of the day. On top of that people bent over and allowed Sony to screw them out of the free version. First got tricked into paying for multiplayer, you were told don't worry you get a free game as compensation. Game never came, network is worst than ever, keep letting Sony slide it won't get better. Now after killing support on any first party games you will be forced fed VR and this site will get your all over again.
It's a better racer than Forza Horizon 2. Challenge is missing from FH2. DC gives you that in heaps.
100% agreed. In terms of graphics, challenge, fun factor, etc I think Driveclub absolutely smokes FH2.
I couldn't even play driveclub for a minute, as soon as I made 1 turn I realized how crap this racer was.
Sorry mate I have both prefer the PS4 but FH2 is streets ahesd in gameplay and challenge,DC is a good game but come on FH2 is the best racing game in years,if you had both you would know this,trust me FH2 is amazing and clearly a much better game
Is it hard to see the screen trough your tears? Does the sun hurt when you come out from under your bridge? ...but seriously I traded the game in after a month, because it was broke, and I just repurchased it again last week. I regretted trading it after I talked to a few friends and saw it was fixed. Now its a blast. Why aren't you complaining that the MCC multiplayer is still broken? I can play Neverwinter,a free game w/o problems but not a $60 game(it is still awesome BTW ).
Sounds like you never played it.
@Grevious Forza Horizon isn't about challenge it's about fun, if you want a challenging Forza game then you play the Motorsport series, at least then they're within the same genre and hence compatible for an accurate comparison @WickedLester Of course Driveclub has better graphics than Forza Horizon 2, Driveclub is a circuit racer, they always specialise in graphics, Forza Horizon 2 is an open world game so its graphics were never going to be cutting edge, plus it's cross-gen where as Driveclub is current-gen only so Driveclub was always going to have the better graphics, and the fun factor is wholly subjective. But if you insist on comparisons regardless then let the public give a more unbiased one: http://www.metacritic.com/g... http://www.metacritic.com/g...
@Jalva Quality > Quantity That depends on who you ask, some will beg to differ with you.......also you are comparing a close-circuit racer to an open world racer? Pretty odd as they have NOTHING in common.
What does being open world have to do with graphic fidelity? I don't understand why so many of you are willing to give FH2 a free pass in the graphics department just because of that. Burnout Paradise City was open world and it's graphics were fantastic (for that generation). Skyrim was open world and I consider it one of the best looking games last generation. So was GTAV. Just because it's open world doesn't mean a damn thing. As far as metacritic goes, pfft! I don't give a shit what the scores say. For one thing FH2 controls like absolute ass. It feels far too floaty and unresponsive. Driveclub's handling is superior in every way.
I have both games and consoles and to say that DC is better is laughable,FH2 shits on DC its not even close,only on N4G could people truly believe that DC is the better game,it is truly sad that so many people are blinded by brand loyalty that they actually believe what they are saying even though what they are saying is guided by love for Sony and hate for MS.FH2 takes a giant steaming shit on DC end of story,DC is a good game and I enjoy it,FH2 is the best racing game made to this day,DC does not deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence and I play both regulary
Your post is factually wrong in several ways. First, the psn has been pretty stable lately, and xbl experienced many of the same outages at and around the same time pen was struggling. Second, DriveClub is a solid game now. It is not as good nor does it have the depth of content as Forza Horizon 2 (I have put 150 hrs in FH2 and still not done) but it has improved a ton over the months since launch. The rest of your post is correct though. Sony gamers have been screwed out of a free game, their network is now pay to play as well (most games anyhow), and by continuing to buy DriveClub gamers are supporting what Sony did which I think was wrong. No game should be released in the obvious state DriveClub was day one. But that goes for Halo MCC as well. As for VR, I think that it will be a very good tech, but, it wont be the next big thing long term. The issue with VR is how it takes you out of everyday things. Family asking you questions, answering telephones, social participation, and everything else that happens when you have to remove your headset. That does not make it bad, but like Kinect it won't be everything for everyone. Unlike move I think it will stick around better.
I actually do have a life,I actually enjoy watching the damage control on this site. Its very entertaining to watch people get screwed over and over. As for MCC problems it didn't effect me,after playing the halo 5 beta I can't play old halo multiplayer,it feels to slow and sluggish. Halo 4 is the only one I can try but I got so use to halo 5 its not the same,titanfall is the shooter I can play after halo 5. I always post from my phone cause I'm the go always hence the many typos. Driveclub in my opinion sucked. Not even compared to forza just to driving games in general,I'd take need for speed most wanted or hot pursuit instead. As for me having no life,watch my no life a$$ streaming mkx with my gorgeous gf on twitch :) dagame 2069
I noticed while playing the game recently they added debris like pieces of paper blown on some occasions onto your windscreen while you are driving.. think just to slightly mess up your field of vision.
This is a good exclusive and I had lots of fun with it, I don't play a lot of racers. I like it's Arcady feel
It was never a bad game to begin with.
Where is my free version.
Driveclub's really the most innovative racer I've seen in years. The demo's so fun and beautiful looking. It's got Forza beat.
Bought it for 40€ in november last year and I still do at least 2 races everyday! It's quite an addiction :)
The better racer is still on the other console though atm.
A lot of people disagree though. It's a great game but no challenge. I even preferred The Crew to FH2.
Best "arcade racer" at least. Since PGR doesn't look like it's gonna get a new game anytime soon the way Forza Horizon is going, this'll do. Sucks that the selection of legit racing titles is low on consoles. PC has so many options, dating back to at least 2003, and mods that it overshadows consoles a **** ton. But I can't fault consoles for not having mods since it's very hard to do that, and the only game I know of that had mods was the PS3 version of Unreal Tournament III. Hell, the NASCAR game I still race online with full 42-car fields and 2015 cars/tracks was made in 2002/2003, and it still beats any NASCAR game released today.
This is the first game that I have ever seen where you can windup with a bug smeared across your windshield. Crazy.
i'm gonna tell it straight, the best driving experience. fun and frightening, the sense of speed and endless eye-candy. love it!
