Despite some rough edges that mar the experience, Driveclub VR is a great racing title that justifies getting back into the seat of a Koenigsegg Agera R as long as you don't mind being motion sick every now and then.
Sorry !!!!! I meant a fat 9 for this one ..... see my comment below !
Dear driving games colls , gamers at all.
I'm an OLD Gamer : Gran Turismo , Forza, Need For Speed , Colin McRae Dirt - you name it , I have it ALL.
Since 1992 - All Important ones , I have them all... this one is a MUST TO HAVE if one is a driving games fanatic as I am.
All the issues about resolution - ok , it's very low comparing to our pc's but bare in mind that it is also much much cheaper than Oculus & Vive .... also , we're just encountering the first signs of VR... so therefore believe me , Sony did a god job to deliver their VR for just 400,- $ and Euros. Still 50% less then the Big competition. Once again , it's less than satisfied when it goes about graphics - I admit ... , but it's f***** good when it goes about responding - steering ( even with ps4 remote !!!!!!! ) and for us driving games ppl
it's much more important than grapics in such case.... besides graphics are NOT SO BAD as you get it on the Demo of DrivingClub VR . Full game is much better , I swear ... still NOT SO GOOD I HOPED it will be but for 20 $ in here ( the Netherlands , Europe ) it's just a MUST to buy for every driving games user as I am since yeaaaaaaars ! If you like driving games - JUST BUY and you'll say : wtf it so good ! like I did when I started the FULL ver of DC VR.
Recycling DriveClub with a VR twist, DriveClub VR offers a lot of content and challenges, and above all gives us a new sense of immersion that is really enjoyable. Of course the PlayStation VR player pays that with a global visual downgrade, but the deal is still a good one, especially with this PSVR launch line-up, where DriveClub has no competitor yet.
DriveClub VR is currently the only one to offer such an experience in virtual reality. And that saves it from being a total fail. But the feeling of speed and immersion are both damaged by poor graphics and low ambition.
DriveClub VR delivers a thrilling experience, but poor graphics and lack of new content, together with the absence of local multiplayer and the lack of players in the online department, hold it way back from greatness.
There's nothing quite like the feeling of having to rip the PS VR headset off mid-session to hurl up chunks of your breakfast, or having to spend the next hour feeling like the room is spinning. It was frustrating enough reviewing the experience - we dread to think how angry we'd be if we'd just spent 30 quid on it...Avoid.
I'm giving this a 10/10. A fantastic first gen PSVR racing game. Currently the ONLY racing game on PSVR. One could argue about the graphics. Sure, not the best, but it doesn't stand in the way. One could argue about the sim vs arcade. Who cares. This game is driving fun. This game shows the way for more racers to come. For this reason alone Driveclub VR deserves love! Anay, I love the racing and I love the replay (as passenger). Great. ****/watch?v=NCsdZSVjF5A
It was a great PSVR launch game. I'll never forget how mind-blowing it was to feel like you're inside the cockpit of the car for real, even though you're playing a video game. The gameplay and campaign are excellent like in the regular DriveClub and it's a full-fledged racing game with a lengthy campaign. The visuals are exceedingly blurry however and they cut a lot of the scenery and visual effects including the weather effects from the regular PS4 version of Drive Club.
I played this title, and liked it, without VR and with my steering wheel and pedal setup. So I knew a little of what to expect on VR with it. I like it in VR, the only downside is the graphics are bad in VR (PS Pro.) For me it's almost to the point that I can't tell what is in the side and rear view mirrors. It was more immersive in VR than compared to flat. Being actually in the car and able to look around is nice. The details in the car are pretty good. Everything outside is not. If you enjoyed DriveClub on flat, you'll still enjoy it on VR. Just be warned that the graphics are way lower.
Well. For a personal user, I will sure give a very low score for any game I can't suffer.
The motion sickness for DriveClub VR is among the top level as EVE:Valkyrie or PS VR World: LUGE. Maybe it is caused by the blur or the low graph quality.
Apart from that, adjusting your position before match is one the shining point of this **** really have a feeling of inside a racing car.
Well let's begin with the **** the lack of them I should say. One word BLURRY, I mean so blurry that is very disappointing to even have this game looking this poorly, which you would think the developers would try harder especially seen it in 1st person view as it's on psvr.
The sound is mediocre, gameplay is mostly a vomit fest, and the longevity of it is as good as a demo.
SummaryGame modes: Online virtual reality multiplayer race modes and an action-packed single player career are joined by drifting and time trial challenges.
