Two racing giants, head to head. Which crosses the finish line first? This article looks at which title ticks the most boxes for you.
I’m going to have to go with Driveclub. The sense of speed has you on the edge of your seat. The weather is second to none and unlike some I actually like the handling model which is a mix between simulation and arcade. Not every game needs to be a simulation. The menus system are also very streamlined, responsive, and the loading times are fast. Literally 15 seconds and your ready to go. I’ll never forgive Sony for shutting Evolution Studios down. While Driveclub came out of the gate unfinished, I think they deserved a second chance. Btw: Anyone know what happened to the game engine Evolution Studios built for Driveclub?
Weather effects are stunning with Driveclub, for me, the best you'll find on any console, period.
I agree. It’s been over 3 years since Driveclub launched and the weather effects are still the best out there.
210° Driveclub vs. GT Sport - Which Is The Best Racing Game For You? FM7 nuff said. (is not about sales its about the best racing game)
@VforVideogames Then why did you mention FM7 when it wasn't A) mentioned, and B) its a PS4 comparison lool...?
DriveClubs weather effects are far from the best. For instance the rain drops are all predetermined patterns on your windshield. The streaks are always the same where in newer games like Forza Horizon 2, Forza Horizon 3, Forza 6 and Forza 7 they are all individuals drops and have their own physics. So they all move independently of each other. DC would be th ebest only if you have never played the new Forza games which I imagine most of yall haven't.
@VforV FM is almost dying off now, its an irrelevant game fanboy reviews hasnt helped it one bit
I agree with everything you say about DC, but even though I love it, I vote for GT. Side note, but I spent tens of hours playing DC with a pad, and it worked great, but when I finally played it with a wheel recently, the experience was disappointing. I too wonder what happened to the game engine. Hope it gets a new lease of life.
Humm I played DC with a wheel and it was much better, my first race even. DSFDF I guess.
I remember seeing DC for the 1st time and I had a ps4 on pre order as I wanted it for than forza 5 at the time but when it got pushed back I changed to the xbox one as I'm a racing fan and there was no racing game in the PS4 at the time. For me I always felt the developers did not get chance to finish DC even with the later patches I think think the idea of DC is it would be Sonys rival to forza Horizon. Ashame the game did not do to well and was put out unfinished and even more the studio was closed. That said I hate when people compare a sim to an arcade game for me they are both different types of games and depending on what type of game you like depends on what you should get imo.
Drive Club graphics is amazing
I've been binge playing Driveclub for literally everyday for over a year since launch and have 100% everything and the bikes too. Great game. Now I play Dirt Rally and just bought GTS. Planning to play that just how I play Driveclub
Agree, I wanted a ps4 motorstorm by evolution studio's
I thought the evo twitter guy said the tech behind driveclub went with them in the merger with codemasters. I remember he had a unique last name. I remember hearing that because the community was pleased the tech wasn’t going to waste
Sony sold the engine to Codemasters?
Doubt Sony would let in house property be taken.
^ Totally agree
Knushwood, reading comprehension avoids unnecessary downvotes. I said the tech behind the game went with them to codemasters. Not the engine itself. The team at evolution responsible for the development of the engine now work for codemasters. You can look this stuff up. Your on the Internet
I own both so that means both are good for me 👍
Dont worry almost every member of Evolution Team is working for the best racing developer in the world Codemasters and they already working on a new game call OnRush.Maybe they can add some of that good work they have done on Driveclub to OnRush or the next Grid game.How Grid i just love that game.
where were all these likes/support when the game launched? wow!
Engine is proprietary, it exists within Sony's in house groups. So they can use it whenever
Neither. There are far better racing games on the ps4 then those 2
Like? Don’t say PC2 either.
Is gt6 on now?? I dont think it is, my wife uses that now crap and would have told me if gt6 was added.
Dirt Rally for one
I wish you would stop posing.
Another Playstation article, another negative post from Kribwalker, how can you comment when you have never played either title? I have never known a more negative commenter on these threads, you bring nothing in the way of meaningful discourse. I long for the days where we had bubbles so we would only have to see one of your comments in each thread. Don't you get tired of this bullshit, just enjoy games, stick to threads you can bring positive energy to instead!
i own driveclub and was in the GTsport open trial. Driveclub isn’t a very good racing game other then graphics and i didn’t like the Gtsport . Dirt Rally or Wipeout are much more fun racing games.
@Kribwalker Driveclub and GT Sports are good games. Same goes with Wipeout and Dirt Rally. You had PS4 but you have MS loyalty just like me.
GT Sport for split screen couch multiplayer and to race on real life racetracks, DriveClub for everything else.
Bakwaas racers 😁
I like Driveclub a lot. It's a good mix between Sim and arcade.
I got both. They're a must own for any racing fan.
Best Race Goty 2017 Forza motorsport 7 Games Awards !
Go play it then...and get a few more to buy it. Back on topic - DC for me but think GT with a wheel is an amazing sim...
Except that has nothing to to do with this article you pathetic troll.
You mean the bias game awards...forza 7 is a joke. Ask any forza fan who actually bought it, including myself. There is so much wrong with that game. Heres a hint, on you xbox one, go to community tab and look at every trending update turn 10 put out, guess what 500 plus comments everytime of all the issues. Just cause critics were paid to give F7 a good review because that was only new game coming out for X1X doesnt mean shit to real people who are fans of series that they totally ruined in every possible way imaginable. GTS and driveclub are tottaly different games, and even GTS and F7 are different. The racing in GTS is pretty damn good and the online mode is actually fun and challenging, unlike forza where the developers say "hey lets give players a hummer, wonder what they'll use that for".
I have both and love both. I'm not even a racing fan either, those were my first racing games since Sega GT 2002 or what ever year it was for the OG Xbox.
Good times. I remember Sega GT on the Dreamcast.
I remember it in the arcades that game was dope
Was that the game that came with Jet Set Radio Future? I think I put as much time into those games as I did Halo and Ninja Gaiden.
Gt sport hands down. DriveClub is a thin arcade racer with lipstick.
Any word on the free GT mode update?
GT Sport for me. Prefer Sim to arcade.
Both great games in their own right, depends whether you like sim or arcade.
DriveClub, 'cause all I play is VR now, and while it can be blurry, it kills it over GT sport's VR
Ones a SIM, ones a simcade. Big difference. I choose DC because I'm not into SIM racing games. I can't even drive a straight line without wrecking.
Driveclub simcade? I don't think you know ya categories - that fits an arcade game with really nice weather effects but a crappy frame rate. So sub arcade as arcade racers, as in stand alone units, have been 60fps for decades.
DC does not have a crappy frame rate at all it's a rock solid 30fps. And DC is an Arcadesim, Forza/GTS are Simarcade, iracing is sim.
I want Ridge Racer 8!!!
They are the lowest scoring racing games of the generation, both started with very little content and only come into discussion when lighting is involved. GTS seems the way to go but drive clips is dead now
Man, I wonder how they sold so well since they're such crap racing games, meanwhile the highest scoring racing games came and went without much of a peep
So drive club hasn't been seen anywhere in the chats this year and the studio closed. GTS was not in the top 10 NPD at half price Lol. On the other hand Forza 7 appeared. Horizon has just dropped after 7 released and it was in the charts since its debut
Are you really suggesting that the fact that a game isn't in the charts 4 years after release is meaninful in any way? Also, since when have reviews been any guaranteed of quality? How about you go and post positive comments in Forza forums instead of bringing your negativity into this thread.
For now I'd still say DriveClub but only because GT Sport didn't have enough cars (Both new and old) Early 2018 then it's GT Sport for me.
Neither, im going with Onrush, i like arcade racers, don't like sims at all. I wanna drift around a corner going 220mph, hit ramp, do a barrel roll and crush someone on the way down
I prefer Driveclub even over the Motorsport series, its more fun and im not really into sim Racers.
Well neither are sim racers anyways.
Driveclub was my first platinum trophy, took me the best part of 6yrs to get one lol.
Damn that's one to be proud of, those damn time trails man!!! Gonna get Plat some day! I have never obsessed over a racing game like this one. Sega Rally was close for me but not like DC.
Yeah some of them challenges were hard, felt a very rewarding 1st plat for sure, over 300hrs put into that game wow, mind boggles why they closed them down, Sony has got gt for sim and driveclub was a perfect game for bringing gamers over from the 360 to ps4 as a forza contender or king?
Drive Club for me. I don't like sim race.
Both are great. If you're looking for a real sense of speed, DC has you covered. Personally I prefer the feel of the driving in GTS.
Two different racing games
Is it a joke ??? GT sport by a huge marge
That's the beauty wit& Sony games you don't have to choose.You can get both😊
The racing genre/devs have ps owners covered this gen, sim = gts/P cars 2, simcade = DC, rally = dirt rally, f1 = f1 2018, top down view = mantis racing Basically if you like racing games theirs great options.
Both great games, In totally different ways.
