    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.

    Competitive rating - 10/10 evoStudios delivered a good challenging game that sucks your attention into the screen, trying to beat your friends scores or tour mode.

    Graphics - 10/10 the detail that has Ben put into the tracks and cars ( in and out ) are at top level of details.

    Handling model - 10/10 each car feel very grippy but also very slippy depends on the acceleration, most hyper cars and performance needs to be tamed to be controlled!

    Features 8/10 photo mode and replay has Ben added, weather and race setups.

    Selection of cars 8/10 without the season pass the car selection contains 50 European cars, with season pass you get varity of different cars such as Lamborghinis and corvettes and much more, season pass gets the car list up to almost 100 cars!

    FreeRoam/mess about - na ) If you're more like a person who like to drive around in the open, tune cars and customize, then do not pick up driveclub!

    The difficulty in this game can not be changed in tour mode so it put your skill to a test which does a really good job, it's either to hard or to easy, and if it is? Practice!
    Driveclub is by far the best driving game I have played, each car feels alive a real, enjoyable to race in them at the same time,
    As a competitive based game, no other game have done it better, as nfs, GT, forza Etc felt to easy for me,

Though, sometimes, the game can be a bit too controlling, too challenging to the point where it feels impossible (though it has a great accomplishment factor), and somewhat unfinished. You don't have the freedom to switch your traction off or to switch your stability control off, and I will get to that in a second. Some hot lap events will ask for a bit too much out of you in terms of lap times, and the same thing goes for the drifting events, which I will also get to in a second as well. Simply touching the wall will nearly completely drain your speed. I like to call it "velcro." The drifting -- though I'm pretty decent at it -- is beyond awful. In regards to the assists mentioned earlier, how is Evolution Studios going to have drift events with drift mechanics more broken than a shattered iPhone, not to mention that the stability and traction controls are locked on? Come on. Anyhow, the assists are just nitpicks, though do make life a bit more difficult during drift events. The game, again, is fun and addicting. I play it on a daily basis, and I love it. By the way, there are plenty of cars missing; you don't get the SRT Viper GTS, the Bugatti Veyron (neither the standard or Super Sport version), the Nissan GTR (or any Skyline at all), 370Z, the Ferrari LaFerrari, Enzo, F50, nor is there a single Lamborghini at all. At least there are brand-new cars like the McLaren P1, the Mercedes-AMG GTS, the Ferrari F12berlinetta, and a few others like the BMW M4 and the BMW M5 F10 update, but -- aside from some more cars -- that's about it. I personally enjoy it despite its flaws. Expand

    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.

    + Graphics
    + Handling
    + Fun factor of the tour events

    - Paid DLC for stuff that should have been included
    - Underwhelming amount of offline tour events
    - Online issues
    - Bugs with times and scores from friends list

    Car selection is somewhat ok but it really lacks alot of cars that are out there.
    AI is like 90's racing game.. they are just there, hanging around and "making" game harder to play.
    AI is agressive, rams you out before finish or that catchup system where BMW just cant get more speed because RPM is red and it's so maxed.. oh hey there are couple of AI BMW's that can go that extra more 30-50kmh and pass you like a standing brick.. then they slow down infront of you and just make entering corner pain or cause to have collision penalti while speed was actually perfect for that corner.. gg

    online is not working, extra car packs cannot be downloaded because of error. And when online works.. try to join club.. bang error and there goes the connection also.

    car handling at high speed is like trying to operate flying sausage... it seems like downforce is nowhere to be found.

    drifting is nothing more than correct angle, entering speed and bam.. here you go, be a pro!!

    there are no settings to get rid of driving aids.. if there is any at all - im not sure. but it feels like there is sometimes and when you lose it.. it's byebye, like what driving assist? traction control, abs? what.. disappeared.

    invisible walls in corners, getting corner penaltys all over the places where I even lose cutting corner, I get penalty also.. just for lulz. oh and then you get corner penalty in tunnels where you CANNOT cut corner.. bouncing wall inside give you penaly :D lol wth

    singleplayer is dull and boring, there are alot of tracks.. which is nice tho.

    graphically game is imo bad... it's ps4 and forza4 had same gfx. it's all jagged edges.. dont know if it's 1080p at all or this game totally lacks any anti aliasing.

    pointless game.. I have played 2 days and already find hard coming back to it. while I played forza4 and GT5 sooo sooooo long. I believe those games have just ruined me because I dont want to accept anything less than forza or GT.

    oh and g27 racing wheel? well too bad and fu! not going to happen because of reasons...
