I have to admit the graphics look incredible and the dynamic weather sounds terrific.....the game does not look as enjoyable as Forza 2 Horizon though....these short videos look like a drive with grandma.

Is this the stuff that'll get patched in later?

Looking forward to trying out the free part of the game. Driving games aren't really my bag, but it does look beautiful.

@chikenfriedrice: As I've said in the Lounge, the game looks amazing! That 1 year delay is really paying off! Remember the E3 2013 videos? Yuck!

Also can we please stop comparing Horizon 2 to DC? They're both racers yes, but one is an open world type racer and the other is a point to point (plus circuits) type racer. Not really two games in the "same boat" per say.

It's difficult not to compare the 2 since it feels like they are going head to head but I do understand they are 2 different types of racers. Cows will point out that Drive Club looks better not taking in to account FH2 is open world.

God it would be so funny if it was DLC (which it isn't, calm down boys), the SW lulz that would bring!

I might actually have to try this out now.

Day 1 for the TRUE next gen exclusive, Drive Club :D

#15 Edited by Zethrickk382 (182 posts) -

Hey even though I dislike racers, free is still free. I'll give it a test drive on release.

holy shit

One of my most anticipated this year. Looks incredible. I was a little salty on the delay but looks like the delay helped because it looks incredible. Forza Horizon looks great too, but im more excited for Driveclub.

All pretty, no substance. Like most Sony exclusives.

I'll give it a shot but I like my arcade style racers ala Burnout and Midnight Club

MS exclusives are similar, they can't even pull off the pretty part however.

not really. the game was a disaster a year ago. even gamespot said at this e3 that they played it last year and it wasn't fun at all. that changed at this year's E3 as they said and they were very excited and it was fun ti play. most previewes of this game after e3 were positive.

man that is looking extra nice. come a long way since the comic con demo i played. hope it plays better as well

Yet again lems are left in the dust with their Forza.

looks pretty good especially on a console thats 400$

#28 Posted by seanmcloughlin (38216 posts) -

Sure fire way to make a game look good. Dim the lighting and make everything super wet

Does look impressive though but I'd prefer 1080p uncompressed footage to see if there's dithering etc

You know fine well it looks good in all weather conditions.

I think that just about wraps up the car game graphics wars. Only on PlayStation!

Call me crazy but I'm not a huge racing game fan. However If I do play a racing game I'd rather it have off the hook graphics like this with only 50 cars than shitty last gen graphics.

Quality over quantity is the way. :)

Or you can just have both with Forza 2 Horizon :)

What would be a 'non generic' looking racing game? Does it need machine guns on the hud? Perhaps mechanical wings that allow you to fly?

That would be great. Sadly we're stuck with garbage like this and Forza.

As someone who's really into cars, if this game had a GT or Forza collection of cars, I'd definitely be forced to get a PS4.

And simulator styled driving. Hopefully GT7 will use this as a benchmark and try to surpass it's visuals and feature set.

Can someone tell me what's so enjoyable about horizon? I don't get it. Just driving through cornfields? Honest question, not trying to be an ass.

Also, holy shit at those graphics.

I don't know if the game will be any good, but it's a looker.

Will enjoy the ps+ portion.

That's a joke right. If i'm not mistaken you have to pick your conditions before you race in DC. Forza has a working model of Earth's atmoshpere which not only affects the weather but the color of the sky and how fast/slow the moisture in the world dries up.

Lets see here. Driveclub has more detailed cars, better looking environments, more realistic lighting, just as good weather effects that look even better. All in all a more technically advanced game graphically. That said, FH2 will be fantastic knowing Turn 10. Graphics aren't everything.

And It'll still come out before TLG.
