    Blends the complexity of realistic simulation with inviting mechanics and gives just enough leeway to evoke heart-pumping power and intensity in every kind of racing fan.

    DriveClub is a good arcade racing game with an interesting social side. If you’re looking for a fast and graphically stunning racing game to play with your friends, this could be an interesting option.

    Driveclub delivers driving fun on gorgeous and expansive maps, offers a variety of ways to race and a bevy of cars to choose from. It won’t satisfy your need for a Gran Turismo-esque experience, but it will certainly bring enjoyment to your racing lives.

    So racing fans who are not looking for a sim racer, but are wanting a robust driving game to compete with friends against, should give this one a spin.

    Driveclub is a fun racing game that takes a little getting used to but lacks some of the options I would have expected from a modern racing game.
  6. Perhaps the only area where Evolution Studios has not deceived players is the graphics. Attention to automobile details is on the crazy level, and manifested thoroughness for design of salons needs a standing ovation too. At an average speed under 160 km/h and taking into account the sinuosity of local trails one can’t afford to feast of surrounding area beauty but even the catchable details are definitely nice.

    It just isn't much fun to play. The core act of driving a car feels off in a way that completely put me off of playing the game. Without that in place, the rest of it just falls apart. The PlayStation 4 has been without a serious racing option since launch, and Driveclub doesn't fill that gap.

It's an arcade handling racer presented with sim like presentation and none of the accoutrements an arcade racer would have. That said it's stunning to look at and there is fun to be had in speeding around the pretty well designed tracks, but there is a lack of connection (for want of a better word) with what's going on on screen. Im not sure whether it's the engine sounds or something to do with a lack of feeling the speed, but there is definitely something missing there.

    It's not a bad game by any means but it would be hard to recommend it wholeheartedly. There is a lot of fun here for those who like the sim approach but don't like to be bogged down with tuning menus, and for arcade racing fans who perhaps want something a little more real, but this list of people is perhaps a very short one and this game I feel probably slips between the cracks. Some will love it, most won't really care for it at all.

    A game with highs and lows. Visually it looks absolutely stunning, but part of the beauty disappears because of the 30fps framerate: you don'tA game with highs and lows. Visually it looks absolutely stunning, but part of the beauty disappears because of the 30fps framerate: you don't get a smooth impression of the world passing by as you drive around which is a bit of a shame.

    The cars are nicely modeled and you're offered multiple third and first person views to choose from.
    The physics are pure arcade, but work pretty well. The handling is direct and it doesn't feel floaty like many other arcade racers from the recent years.

    The offline career mode is a little underwhelming. The amount of events the tour mode comes with is simply not enough, and it's appalling that they keep 176 (!) events aside as paid DLC. You can get them for €20 with the season pass, but for a game going for the full retail price, they should have been included. Some of the DLC will be provided for free, but it doesn't make up for the stuff they make you pay extra for.

    Online, the game was a disaster on release but is gradually improving. Still a lot of bugs though with what should have been the core of this game.

    No customization, very few tracks, poor physics and god-awful servers contribute to this games piteous score of 3/10. 50 Cars would have beenNo customization, very few tracks, poor physics and god-awful servers contribute to this games piteous score of 3/10. 50 Cars would have been okay if they were all individual and unique, and didn't sound like a cross between a vacuum cleaner and an overheating computer. There is also no first person view, and the AI is crap. The only reason this isn't a 0, is because the graphics are truly amazing! Expand
