Youtube’s frost Danger Has post new video shows new Comparison between Need For Speed 2015 And Driveclub in the terms of Graphics and customization.
Need For Speed
Yeah Need for Speed on this one although both games are kinda different. DC has more attention to the finer details but N4S has it overall. I'll probably get show down to pieces for this but DC's visuals seem really inconsistent to me. Was on it yesterday and it just didn't stand out as much as I remembered it to.
It has never stood out to you before so it's not surprising to see you pick nfs.
It's not a very accurate comparison. Different lighting conditions. NFS takes place in a city with multiple light sources illuminating the environment, so it's bound to look more flashy and visually appealing. And not having an in-car view also helps. Not to take anything away from NFS though. It does look really great.
It doesn't matter what Game or anything. Septic will always side with Xbox or a Multiplat over Sony. Not sure if he's a troll or an Xbox rep. Either way I don't take anything he say seriously but still can be amusing to listen to him defend every comment over and over.
Heres the thing, Drive Club wins in this match in terms of better look graphics, or engine if you wanna say that. Now Drive CLub doesnt really take place in the same scenary in the eyecandy city of NFS. NFS also has a more motion blur. Both games look great tho and I like it. We shouldnt stop there, keep going! :D
@Walter Forget your obsession with me for one moment and tell us what you think. What looks better ; NFS or DC?
Need for speed is more open world.
your the most biased and annoying person on n4g
Considering NFS is open world, I am shocked that it can even compete graphically with driveclub. Anybody with DriveClub knows this video doesn't do it any justice compared to seeing it in person though i'm pretty sure the same could be said for NFS. But judging from my personal experience with DC and the youtube videos of NFS, Driveclub has the better overall graphics, which is to be expected considering NFS is open world.
WalterWJR: could say the same for all playstation fans... they are the biggest hypocites on here, they praise a game like need for speed in a drive club comparisson but yet when forza gets compared to drive club oh no! we cant have that now... will there ever be a time when ps fans will enjoy all games no matter what platform its on? doubt it as long as their heads are up sonys @ss
septic I thought I was the only one who noticed your stealthy comments against playstation but it seems others are also noticing with the amount of bubbles you have, you should always make neutral posts we get it man Xbox one is amazing we get crackdown is only possible on Xbox one we get it BC is a killer feature just why do people feel the need to push down these things down our throats. why can I be a Ps4 gamer who may never buy an Xbox one but will also never say anything against it? why is it and I am not just asking you septic, I don't want you to feel I am just picking you out trolls exist on both sides, playstation trolls make bad comments about Xbox one and Xbox trolls make bad comments about ps4. and you know who you are. difference I have seen is playstation trolls have one or 2 bubbles while Xbox one trolls have 5 and above so something must be magical on this site
Honestly wtf did I do wrong here? I simply shared my opinion and I've got trolls calling me out? I'm not stealth trolling at all. Want to challenge me on my opinions? By all means do so. I will do a video chat ir even face to face sit down and debate things with you. You lot are welcome to join me because unlike many on here, I have a back bone and am happy to back up my points. So if youre going off topic and dragging me out here because i hurt your sensibilities, then call me out specifically on the topic at hand. NFS is a better looking game in that video. I am not that impressed by DC's visuals because I think they're inconsistent but in the past, I have always given it props on here for its visuals. I am not impressed by DC as a racer, yes this is true. What's stealthy about what Ive said? @ninsigma below What's stealthy downplay though? Honestly tell me. Make Xbox look better? How did I do that here? That was PS4 NFS footage
I would just like to say that I agree with the people above about your "stealthy" ps downplay and what not. In fact it's not really ps downplay, it's more just make xbox look better. That's fine though, just don't like it when you turn around and pretend to be neutral, that's all. Though having said that, in this case I would agree with you, and give the nod to need for speed on which looks better.
"DC has more attention to the finer details but N4S has it overall"? What I am seeing in this video is that N4S has a lot more finer details... The car you customize will be the car you drive. So, what vehicle details are you thinking about? (the surrounding is no question that N4S wins, just begin to compare the closest surrounding - the tarmac you drive on...)
If I am correct they were showing PS4 footage which already looks amazing and I cannot wait to see or finally play the PC version as it should look even better and I can play in 4K with my monitor as well
Agreed, and considering it's also open world that's quite an accomplishment.
It's open world but with no interiors. Driveclub is a track racer with both interior and exterior modeled down to every last screw.
@Speak...are you trying to imply that a cockpit view is harder to compute than a City?
@Pistols that's not what I was implying because you can't compare the environments as they are two different settings. We'll have wait for a city track in Driveclub.
NFS definitely looks more fun to play. I would say they both look similar except NFS seems a lot faster and the spark effects etc I do want to stay out if this one because this is N4G and the gamers here think DC is the best Racing car game on the market. So ill leave it at they both look the same except NFS looks fasters.
actually both games look great, but imo NFS looks better in these night videos.
The headlights look amazing in Drive Club. Looking forward the Need For Speed. Looks like Forza 6 can wait till its bargain priced. I probably won't be able to wait that long. Better start saving now. The person posting the Video is also arguably an Xbox One fanboy or fanboy feeder, easy to see in the videos in my opinion. Doesn't change fact that NFS looks good.
The Need for Speed wins this one
Agreed NFS looks mighty impressive... Gotta say that Frostbite Engine is delivering some impressive graphics between this Battlefront and Mirrors Edge... Im sure ME4 will be a looker too.
Both look great.True racing game fan here! i have no favorites.
So true man. Just thinking about GT7 gives me shivers. :) DC and NFS will help to ease the pain to wait for it.
GT7...that will wipe the floor with all other racers in the visuals department is my prediction. Their next game will look better than real life.
Septic that may happen. But they seem to take several extra years to put a version together. You have to believe the PS4 version was started before launch and we haven't heard a word about it. Five year development cycles should always give you better results.
Both look good, NFS's speed looks exaggerated, while DC's looks like it's tone down. I guess it caters to different gamers. So if you're a fan of these genres buy both. While me, I'm more of a GT gamer. So I'm still waiting for GT7 to be release before buying a PS4. I bought my PS3 after GT5 was released. I'm sure a lot of GT fans are doing the same.
I'm also into racing sims myself! forza 6 looking great even i don't have a XB1, and although we haven't heard nothing about GT7 yet, it's all good because while they polyphony digital still working on it, the crew wild run expansion pack coming november 17 with the graphics overhaul with dynamic weather system, handling physics more stable from what i heard on some videos on youtube and more, need for speed 2015 on november 3rd and i got driveclub, i'm good. :)
It's a tie for me. The games look amazing for different reasons so I would have no problem owning both, hell after seeing the upgrades coming to the crew I might end up getting that as well. 3 cool car games, each having their own personality for what they offer.
I'm looking forward to the Crew's updates as well. It's getting a lot of buzz from people who dismissed the game initially. This NFS... Hard for me to get excited about it, I don't only want to race at night.
NFS won. Wow, it does look stunning with the speed and lighting.
Will Need For Speed look better on the Ps4 or xboxone?
NFS by a bumper surprisingly.
Oh look another article mentioning driveclub and it's graphics.
That just shows you it really is the king of driving games. For those who can handle it. Because it doesn't have driving lines or rewind. The king...
lmmfao. So graphics make a game king? I just wrote this exact same sentence a few days ago and received more agrees than disagrees. Gameplay>Graphics. Driveclub is more noticed about it's graphics than anything else. Please. Name something innovating or different in that game than any other racing game. Go ahead. I'm waiting.
What a load of rubbish. Let's be platform agnostic here for a second. Forza and GT spank DC by every metric besides graphics.. But then they both have better frame rates. Project Cars and Assetto Corsa are also in the running. They both have the most advanced sim engines to date, closely followed by Forza (non Horizon) Drive Club has pretty water effects, a fun arcade engine, and a Nauseating 30fps. 30fps in any self respecting car game is a no no. It's junk food video gaming compared to the others. Its a modern day Ridge Racer. Nothing wrong with that, but it certainly isn't king.
Driveclub is the king of racers? Yeah, maybe to biased Sony fanboys like you. In what way is it superior to Forza outside its glorified aesthetics? It's a pretentious tech demo disguised as a half-assed racer. You're telling me the driving arrows (which can be disabled!) and the rewind feature (which can also be disabled!) in Forza automatically renders the game too easy and unchallenging compared to Driveclub? At least I can intricately customize my cars in Forza to my liking. At least the driving mechanics are realistic, since the game actually knows it's a racing simulator. What's Driveclub? Oh wait, it's a boring arcadey racer with little content. I'm a PS4 user and fan, but I can't bring myself to stoop so low by claiming Driveclub is king of racers just because it shines in graphics. Your comment is genuinely cringey, but somehow it'll manage to get agrees since anything positive said about Driveclub will attract agrees in this PS4 biased site.
It also doesn't let you turn off assists. Fail.
@GreenUp something innovatinve? Okay... (and i'm not talking about anything about graphics, as you wanted, because there are many innovations such as global illumination, etc but let's leave this out) - in-game competition against records set by othe players in short mini-games: drifting, average speed, and making good turns (following lines) - very good balance between arcade and simulation gameplay, seriously, no game made it so perfect, forza to me is too silumation-based (but it's a good simulation unlike project cars), all the latest drift's and grid were too arcadey - best animations ever in such good looking game, starting from cars, tires, arms, steering wheels, ending up on people over the barricades, also thy are so fluent, it doesn't look like this game is 30 fps, it's one of the best eexamples that perfect stable 30 fps with awesome animations feels much better than 60 fps stutterring or even dropping to 50 fps... - it's called by enthusiast of such games (clearly you guys aren't) the best racing game and most fun since the last Project Gotham Racing for X360 - best ever "club"/"clan&qu ot; system, which let's you do basically clan wars, rank up your club, also it has one of the best online stability/no lag for me at least, and In my country games lag as hell -physics! physics physics physics! There are a few games with similarily good physics, such as Forza Horizon 2 EX, but it's pretty innovative still nowadays. That's pretty much innovations for a simple genre that is racing game.
Nfs looks artificial and glossy, it doesn't look realistic which it isn't supposed to. It will be a looker no doubt but I can't see it unhinging DC
Agreed. People are watching compressed youtube videos of a game that isn't even close to realistic looking. DC by a mile for me if we are talking simulation of life.
DC can do simulation of life ? Damn, that's deep ! Seriously though, DC is the prettiest racing game. It'll be awesome to see Nfs top it.
Indeed. But then, this is more fuel for those who need to "win" something, especially over a game they panned late last year!
Off topic Anyone know if the game have a day cycle or it's only night time
From dusk till dawn it all takes place so all night racing.
What about this photo it shows some day time http://assets.vg247.com/cur... Source http://www.technobuffalo.co... this is confusing
I heard those shots were recreated using the Frostbite engine, but they're not necessarily in-game shots. So... probably not?
So happy to see fans here talking well about NFS. I have no friends interested in NFS. I haven't bought one is years except a fee months ago I got The Run for $5. Pretty awesome! I love the action movie vibe of it. Driving is bad though. But I've dreamed for NFS to go back to Underground style for a decade! I can't believe it's happening! Every time I see new info or videos I get hyped! I read the wiki page with the cars shown until now, so hyoed! I love how they are going legit urban. No ricer shit. Even have Japanese in there and a lot of Japanese cars! Can't wait to get a R32 or a RX-7! What if there's a AE86! Please!
Both look good. One is aiming for a real life look while NFS is more action movie scene type. Also more fine detail on DC. I would like to say though that to get more immersion, I use the bumper cam or cockpit view.
Completely different setting. But visually Driveclub is unmatched by any racer on any system. NFS looks good as it the last game using frostbite. Excellent engine. Would love to see some city tracks in driveclub as well. https://www.youtube.com/wat... Unmatched.
Its why Drive Club is constantly brought up. DC vs this, DC comparied to that. Great job on Evo's part. Great devs and Im proud of them. NFS looks fantastic too, glad they didnt pull a THPS5 (I really thought they could still make it fun with greater graphics, not a fan of cellshade tbh)
Exactly my point. They use driveclub to compare other racers to. Which means it's the standard. This game is multiplatform, it can't push tell visuals of a PS4 like DC can.. My opinion of course. So please don't disagree or my feelings will be very hurt.
Why does your comment have 4 disagrees and 6 agrees (at this time)? Why people hit that disagree button when you said the truth, I guess this site is full of stupid fanboys.
Cause people be trippin man,lol their life sucks I guess, sad, wish they could have a brighter day....accept for in NFS, I frikkn love underground night time racing :D Wouldnt mind a few day scenes but dang I loved U2 and the feeling of the old Fast n Furious movie.
DC seems to be the racing game that every other racing game as been compared to in terms of graphics. DC has been compared to every game racing out there. This alone is a statement by itself.
Not having in-cabin ( cockpit ) camera view is a very big omission in any form of racing games whether arcade or sim especially at this present time. Honestly the vehicles on Need for Speed only looks good when they are static** in the garage with the customization mode on. In gameplay mode they are more toy-like. So DriveClub still wins it here.
I totally forgot about that! I hope we can get a cockpit view at least for a few cars in an update. I love the view, especially in games like gta v
What are we comparing exactly? car models and effects or overall environment? If it's car model/effects based on the video i'd give it to DC but if its overall environment then for sure N4S. I think this is more of a FH comparison than dc as they are both open world so ofcourse N4S gonna have alot more going on than DC. unless as i said you are comparing specifics.
DC for visuals NFS everything else
How does Need for Speed handle? How much content is there? What is the progression like? Is there a story? Since you say DC lags in every area but graphics, surely you know these things about both games and can give us an in depth explanation as to why each game comes out on top in every respective area. Can't you?
Thats from just what we know so far. It could turn out crap for all i know. Ive always been a fan of the NFS underground games so im really hoping i get the same feel with this game like i did with those. Not bagging DC, its one of my faves with gen.
Why do they compare a footage of city track with full of lights (NFS) to a wild landscape track (Driveclub)?
Both games are visually very impressive.But there is a big difference between DC and NFS.NFS is a open world game and DC is a level based racer.Normally it is more difficult to achieve the same visual fidelity for a open world game if they are attempt to render game at the same frame rates.Because level based games can preload most of the map assets into the RAM before the GPU actually render the assets.Open world games have to use real time streaming method to load map assets based on the location where the player stays in the world. Forza 5/6 is at 60fps and Forza Horizon 2 is 30fps.They are using the same game engine.Open world games have to make many compromises. Also NFS and DC's environment are different types. One is more metropolitian and the other one is more rurual. It is hard to compare them directly.For me, NFS environment is more dense and detailed. Many people think DC's look is more realistic than NFS. Because compare to DC, NFS tone is more action film like,just like Fast and Furious films.Film is also less 'realistic' compare to raw footage after a lot of post effects and colour grading. Besides graphics, NFS have cops's AI, destructive world assets, transition between multiply racing tasks, all drive networking system which are more compute resources consuming compare to just a single race. DC definitely have some finer graphics aspects(rain drops and trails,3D cloud,SSR).It is also exciting to see NFS can achieve such great visual fidelity for a open world racing game especially considering this one may be a spiritual successor to underground.
NFS always online,NO THANKS!
Have fun living in the stone age.
