FRESH NEW GAME
This game for the PS4 looks and sounds that it will be better that GRAN TOURISMO 6 & the new NEED FOR SPEED RIVALS. I can't wait to get a copy play it. With all the hype about the ps4 plus this game, I hear it's going to be AWSOME. I can not wait for the system plus this game.
This is a game for racers. Don't belive these xbox fanboys on here trying to sell you on forza. Forza is a whole different animal . You can't customize cars to the max. You can do paint jobs . Down to its core it's a racing game for racers. Not some car show on wheels to brag about your rims and mods that most racers have become. You might want a little actual driving skill to play this game. Quite honestly it's a ten game for real racers so if you like a race game that requires skill this is your slice of bread. Stop buying games if you don't know what they are about and then giving bad reviews because your terrible at the game. The A.I. Actually challenges you to race right . The graphics and different views are awesome. You move up the ladder to different cars as you rank up so the speed increases with the cars. Great game ! If you want a game where you can put tons of junk on your car wait for gta or the crew , or if you want to slam in to walls and have special powers go get NFS......
GOOD GAME BUT HAS ITS ISSUES
After a year long delay, DriveClub Brings a beautiful racing game to the PS4. But with bad servers and a lack of some cars, driveclub offers a decent experience. You start out in a race right away to get acquainted with the controls and feel for driving. If you are a beginner to racing games, I would advise choosing a different game such as Forza or Gran Turismo. There is no rewind, no line to follow and no auto brake. It's pure racing skill. This game feels more restricted than others and feels like gran turismo or F1. I thought it would be like forza horizon 2 with a mix of elements. The single player is like gran turismo because there are specific events that require you use a specific type of vehicle but the difference is as you rank up, you unlock cars and you don't have to buy. The main issue is the online. When it gets working, it looks to be a promising game mode with lots of replay value but now it has problems. another issue I have is that there are a few cars I wished would have made it. there are no Bugattis or Lamborghinis at the moment and plus there are zero muscle cars kind of a disappointment. overall drive club has potential to be a great game when the servers are fixed only time will tell
Amazing Graphics...and that's about it.
I picked up Drive Club today after a year of waiting for it. I popped it into my PS4 and it was amazing looking. Probably the best graphics I've ever seen then.... Then I played it and it was all down hill from there. 1st the Driveclub server was down... Really!!! on the first day of it's release. So I played the single player mode. It's based off of gathering stars to unlock higher difficulty levels. No sound track and the tire screeching in really really annoying. After 3 hours of playing and hoping it would get better, I got really bored with it. Took it out of my PS4 and went out and grabbed a copy of Forza Horizon 2 for XB1. The only thing good about drive club is that it'll give me $40 trade in when I trade it in next week for The Evil WIthin. Don't waste your time or money on this racer... DON'T JUDGE A GAME BY IT'S GRAPHICS.
Looks Amazing... But not very fun
Once you stop obsessing over the brilliant visuals and great sounds, Driveclub is just an average racer with not many thrills to offer. There are no Japanese cars and only a single American car, the Hessessey Venom GT. The car selection is rich with popular European cars as well as more obscur cars like the Marussia B2. Handling is arcadey and accessible to most new comers but drifting is a chore and kills the flow of driving. The environments are as equally impressive as the detail in the beautifully redered cars. But the limited number of tracks wear the locations out pretty quickly. Also, server issues still cripple some of the key features of the clubs, like challenges, and forget this game if you don't have the habit of buying ps PLUS, like many other games on Playstation, you need it to access online multiplayer. I love the concept of working together in clubs, but with the server issues, you'll pretty much be stuck on single player. Also, the driving AI is really aggressive and it kills the single player races. Never the less, I still have confidence that the server issues will be fixed and I'll eventually get my money's worth. But for now, I suggest you to avoid this game.
1st game I actually returned; not traded back.
What a disappointing experience. Almost 2 weeks in and the server problems continue. I played single player to level 15 before realizing that because the server wasn't up yet all my driving didn't count towards my club progress. So after managing to get online long enough to create a club it won't let me save it because the server went down again... even aside from server issues you have no car specs just a generic bar graph of handling, speed, braking, etc. There are only like 50 cars too most of which you wouldn't want to drive anyway. There is very little modifications available. Track and menu layout is horrible. Some are open road races and some are tracks, but there is no preview to look at. So is it a loop? A figure eight? What kind of track? ... the game is absent of common sense and intuition its scary. Sure it looks pretty but so did Forza 5.
After waiting a full year for this game I am highly disappointed. I am a huge Gran Turismo fan and thought this would be the next gen of racing. To the contrary, this game has many issues. First, the online play is very poor. The servers do not work most of the time and I usually get booted mid race which is very frustrating. Second, There is no car modding like in Gran Turismo. You cannot adjust the cars for your driving style, you just have to work with what they give you, which isn't much to begin with. Finally, The game is just boring. I find myself wanting to stop playing after about 30 mins. I will say that the graphics are pretty darn good, but that doesn't make up for the lack of online gameplay which is what this game was supposed to be based on. If you like Gran Turismo then stay away from this one.
Better than Forza For Fun Online Racing
This is not Forza. This is arcade racing at it's finest. Does it have realistic physics like Forza. No. Tons of cars, real tracks and customization like Forza? Again, no. But this is not a race sim so I won't judge it as one. What THIS is, is the most fun racing I've experienced since the original GT. We're talking pedal to the metal, screetchin' round the corners at top speed. The physics are forgiving so they become perfect for online racing with people crashing into you. You can mitigate and save and the person trying to crash into you gets penalized! Rubbing is racing and this game got it and makes it fun. Oh and one more thing. The Dualshock motion sensor is used to provide wheel-like steering if you prefer. In closing, even if you're a die-hard Forza fan like me, don't miss out on some casual but quality arcade style online racing!
This is a beautiful game but thats about it. Agter playing this game for about an hour I was over it. The game is very boring. There is no lasting appeal. If you dont take my word for it, buy a preowned copy and play it for an hour and you will understand.
Most everything i read about this game was along the lines of, 'better thank gran turismo", "forza killer". first, this game is hyped wayyyy up. it is no where near forza/ gran turismo'ss level of realism. this game realistically is on the same level as need for speed. there is no upgrading. barely any customization. this is a combination of dirt, and need for speed. second the graphics in the video? it'd be nice if the games graphics were half as nice as the videos. overall i am very disappointed with this game and ive been waiting for it since it was announced. if i could change it i would borrow it from a friend or buy pre owned and return a week later but i pre ordered and now im stuck with it.
