DriveClub vs Forza Horizon 2 Raindrops Comparison: Which One Is More Realistic?

By -

DriveClub and Forza Horizon 2 are two notable exclusives on the rival platforms. Forza Horizon 2 is exclusive to the Xbox One while DriveClub is exclusive to the PlayStation 4. Both of these games look great but in term of realism, which one takes the crown home?

We recently saw weather system for DriveClub, which introduced us to rain in DriveClub and how it will look like in game. This looked seriously impressive and highly realistic, the way the rain drops reacted to the fast moving car. Forza Horizon 2, despite being an impressive looking game, lacks the same effect, and it does make a huge difference as can be seen in the GIF below.

Forza Horizon 2

DriveClub

It is definitely impressive how Evolution Studios have nailed the look of driving during a rainstorm. The manner in which rain drops appear on the car bonnet and react to the flow of the wind adds to the game’s realism. This effect combined with the much more natural looking lighting makes it appear far more impressive compared to Forza Horizon 2.

Forza Horizon 2 is no slouch either, and looks visually stunning on the Xbox One. It can’t match the realism of DriveClub though. Now ofcourse, it is an entirely different question that which one is the better game since they haven’t been released yet.

What do you have to say to this comparison? Let us know in the comments below.

    driveclub! wow !
    Forza Horizon 2 just got is arse kick

  • Trigga

    Lol are people actually comparing an open world amazing car game to some cheap delayed game from Sony again which only delivers good “visuals” like the rest of the bad line up they have had all year. Forza looks a hundred times better, brighter beautiful setting, compared to a dull boring driveclub.

  • Illusive Man

    Look at that looping water streakon the hood. Driveclub is smoke and mirrors. But it does look good.

  • Ahmz Cro

    Seems there is more going on in the background in FH2, but overall the look of DC is more realistic if that makes sense?

  • Illusive Man

    It’s drizzling and in the day time in FH2.

    It’s foggy, dusky, and pouring in DC.

    I don’t understand the comparison.

  • d0x360

    Wow…look at all this fanboy nonsense. Its possible to buy and enjoy both games especially since they are different.

    Drive club. Closed point to point races
    Forza. Open world races.

    Both have merits. drive club is pretty and might have better weather. Forza has more customization. Drive club is more arcade. Forza is more Sim.

    Different sub genres. Buy both. Have fun.

  • Thinkaboutit

    I usually find the graphics argument annoying and pointless but damn… Driveclub looks sick.

    • Guy Brohski

      Driveclub looks good, but also looks boring. FH2 actually looks good, and it looks fun. Imagine that.

  • Cody Glisson

    drive club

  • heythislookscool

    they both look good graphically.. but DC has been in development for a long time now..if they didnt master a few things by now they would be pretty shit.. this new forza was built in half the time.. and id have to say forza will be much more successful over the no frillz untested drive club regardless of its equal beauty.. i hate car games.. hope they both fail.. but even i know the clear winner will be the famous forza series

  • Renzoe

    maybe,if both videos was equal in quality it would be a lot easier to pick,but since fh2 video is not clear as dc video i will keep my opinion to myself.I bet if you look up fh2 in youtube you could find a better video than what there showing here bs.

  • Bill E Weaver

    Are you idiots really comparing a heavy rain scene next to a drizzle rain scene from FH2? Rain doesn’t even effect the way the cars handle in DC, hahaaaha.

    • http://mfdawes.com Mixel

      You clearly see them skidding around in the rain on the new gameplay videos.. Are you saying its that skiddy in all weather conditions?

      • Guy Brohski

        “Are you saying its that skiddy in all weather conditions”…
        Guess you’ll have to wait until they patch weather into the game to find out, huh?

  • marc berry

    Now if we can just get open world in DRIVERCLUB the rain looks good.

  • Eagles83

    Yes the weather effects in the gif look better in Driveclub. I’d be surprised if it didn’t. Driveclub is a closed track game while FH2 is open world. The closed track game should have better effects and it is running on a slightly more powerful system. Both games look great though in their own right but this comparison is apples to oranges. The real comparison should be when Gran Turismo eventually comes out on PS4 against whatever Forza game is out at the time.

  • phar0ahad3

    Am i the only one that thinks that fora looks super colorful and not realistic at all i bet if i was a dev and i could zoom in and dig into the code it would look like shit

    • Guy Brohski

      But Driveclub looks dull and boring, while FH2 actually looks fun. Take your pic..

  • James Anthony

    LOL how many cars does drive club have ?

    • Guy Brohski

      50 cars in the full price, retail version. Sadly….

  • ilovegoogleglass

    Forza IMO.

  • ilovegoogleglass

    Driveclub is more cinematic in terms of camera angles. Not a fan of the gray tone.

  • rodbox

    forzalising is just old gen in front of Drive Club

    • Guy Brohski

      Silly pauper can’t even spell aliasing correctly, you’re really dumb lol. not to mention FH2 is 1080p with AA, so aliasing isn’t even a problem here. Also, I wonder how long it will be until your console has an exclusive 1080p 60fps racing game? Have fun waiting for weather to be patched into your linear game with 50 cars. Just another delay for you while awaiting greatness, I suppose…lmao

      • rudero

        Ha. Have fun hoping that you get the game they advertise. See. Mine is based off fact. Yours is just trolling.

        • Guy Brohski

          Just cross your fingers that Driveclub isn’t delayed again. They’ve already delayed the game’s real time weather until god knows when… So, when do you think PS4 will have a 1080p 60fps racing game? Because it’s honestly lacking now, just sayin’.

          • rudero

            The delay thing is about as old as “the cloud” comments.
            At least one pertains to something real.
            60 FPS on a non sim racing game is no big deal.
            I would say that argument can come once gt7 says hello. Is there any 60fps racer coming out this year? As in confirmed.

  • mark_parch

    have to admit the rain drops on the car look outstanding on dc but that hardly makes the game better. when the games release i expect fh2 to score better there will be loads more content and its hardly a bad looking game things like handling are more important to me for a racer. look at killzone and ryse the two best looking next gen games and both pretty average games.

  • Beat

    Graphics do matter?

  • Salomao Elesbon

    Are we really discussing raindrops these days?

    • DLConspiracy//

      Yes, apparently.

      • Salomao Elesbon

        Incredible how far has it gone… I mean, realism…

  • DLConspiracy//

    Well it’s not even raining in the FH2 comparison. Seems like a click bait article. Now make a comparison video of 30 fps vs 60 fps, or maybe How many cars are in each game? Something to add to the pile of insults each side has to deal with because writers keep pushing the console war.

  • Convergence87

    PS4 master race

  • Ryan Tinney

    The fact that FH2 is open world and DC is all closed tracks, would play a factor in graphics overall as well as rain drops. Both impressive in their own right.

  • jacksjus

    After Infamous released can we still use open world as an excuse for graphical setbacks? To date there isn’t a console game out with better visuals.

    • Guy Brohski

      Infamous’s world feels dead though. Maybe if they’d included driveable cars and lots of pedestrians it would actually be fun…

  • Guest

    What a p*ss poor comparison for clickbait. It’s not even raining in that FH2 GIF, it’s after a shower.

  • *Travis*

    Driveclub all the way!

  • Lennox

    Both look great. Drive Club has bit of an edge. But I’m still getting Forza Horizon first because I think it will be the better game gameplay wise.

    • Kayser

      how about you wait for reviews ?

      • Lennox

        I’m just coming from the experience of playing FH1. I’m much more accustomed to that system of driving. Not saying Drive Club will be bad, just that IMO, FH2 will be the one I get first.

  • Stereotypical_White_Fella

    dc is a closed course game, fh has a full open world so yeah

  • datdude

    Well, it’s pretty clear Drive Club will be the better looking game, but if we’re being fair Forza Horizon 2 is more open world so it’s not an apples to apples comparison.

  • Reddz Foxx

    Both games aren’t even out yet and people are already arguing about which looks better based on youtube compressed video’s. smh.

    “Hey my stick is better then your stick” ” not uh” ” Let me see it then!” Its still being made like 1000 miles away but i got these really fuzzy screenshots”

  • albatrosMyster

    FH looked good with their weather effects until Driveclub showed what they have in store… This is just in another league, no matter how you try to excuse it, FH just looks cartoony compared to DC, it’s like comparing the first Outrun (1986) to Daytona USA (1994), visually speaking they’re not playing in the same league.

    But hey, there are still xbox fans out there telling up Ryse is the best looking game ever made in almost every threads, while it was not even the best looking game when it was released (the argument was between Crysis 3 and Killzone:SF).

    • toddraynerart

      Oh so true. The truth hurts on the x-clones out there. DC does look badass. FH is definitely looking really good, but when compared to DC it’s a no win for FH. Sorry :(

  • You are flat out wrong’s mom

    i’m ‘You are flat out wrong’ mom and please help him stop making love to his ps4, he’s a tight virgin and it’s things like this that give his 1 inch a burp. he has a busy life of licking my clit clean so please don’t distract him. Thank you.

  • Rude warrior

    kinda unfair if u ask me, in forza it’s barely raining but i must say driveclubs rain does look neat and clean…. and sick.

    • chrisredfield31

      if you watch the full video where that came from, FH2 was clearly raining but then you compare it to the full video on the other, DC clearly wins out.

  • starscream1180

    driveclub wins in the raindrops dept … lol

    as a gamer i gotta say ,this is such a pathetic click bait article…

    evolution spent all their resources on graphics for this game , which is why the game has zero customizations , inivisblewalls, 40/50 cars etc… for a delayed game not impressed much

    but hey the raindrops are awesome

    • Spencer

      The car situation is about quality over quantity. They spent a ton of time getting every single detail about these real super cars down, from sights to sounds. It’s the most authentic you’ll ever get. Are you saying you want more cars because you’ll ACTUALLY DRIVE more than 60 cars in a game? Or is it some dick measuring contest in your head? I would rather have killer super cars than a bunch of fluff filled with freaking European hatchbacks.

      • starscream1180

        i own over 150 cars in forza 5 …and i barely play the damn game.

        i have presets per car , depending on whether im drag racing or road racing.

        just because this game lacks all of the above , the dick measuring comment is laughable considering every sony fanboy brings up the fact that gt series has a bazillion car selection. even tho most are same models with different paint custom schemes …

        this game will be a fun arcade racing game at short bursts of play…. theres nothing deep to this game except the rain effects where they spent all their time apparently.

  • YOUDIEMOFO

    Driveclub for the win.

  • Fay_Z

    they both look good…it’s not even raining on the forza screenshot, it’s just wet patches lol unfair fanboy comparison, and driveclub has no customization, 50 cars & 55 tracks…. FAIL. so much for the delay, 2 forza games this year & were still waiting on sony to drop this one

    • You are flat out wrong

      Damage control harder, little Faisal. :)

      • You are flat out wrong’s mom

    Driveclub- Been in development for ages. On a more powerful console. Not open world. It better look better.

    • starscream1180

      have u seen the invisble walls ?… its basically on rails. lol

  • shaff

    How can you say DC rain looks better….The genius writer is showing a FH2 GIF where its not even raining.

  • WAWer

    Forza Horizon 2 is an open world racer with lots more to take account for in the coding. DriveClub is not. You would hope DriveClub would have slightly better graphics or it would be an embarrassment.

    • Not_true

      PS4 would run Horizon 2 better, Xbox would run Driveclub worse.

      • starscream1180

        you are the smartest guy in the short bus , …

        • Not_true

          You and reality must not get along much.

      • EmpeRawD

        Derp, Derp, Derp, Derp…..Derp

  • Neil Riley

    The main difference that I can see is the far superior lighting and environmental effects in DriveClub which looks really impressive. FH2 looks very flat in comparison. Just my opinion though.

  • Dadrixx

    They both look amazing, but DriveClub wins hands down.

    But I *personally* think Forza Horizon will be a much more interesting game, simply because it’s Open World. I don’t know, I like to just drive around in beautiful landscapes. And even though DriveClub has AMAZING environments, it’s still a “Select track/Select car/Play” kinda game. I’m not saying DriveClub will be bad, I’m actually planning on buying it, it looks awesome, but I think Forza Horizon 2 will be a better game.

    But well… I only own a PS4… YOU WIN THIS TIME, MICROSOFT !

    • Not_true

      Closed and open world racers are different experiences, not inherently better or worse than one another.

      • Dadrixx

        That’s why I insisted on saying “I personally think”, “I think”, etc…
        It’s MY opinion.
        I’m not saying the style of the games will make one better than the other, I just say that, when you want to make a stunning looking racing game with beautiful landscapes, being able to just drive around and explore seems more interesting to me.

        But maybe I wasn’t being clear, my syntax isn’t always really good… If that was the case, my bad !

  • sparcuk

    Would it be easier if we all just got our penises out and compared sizes (you’ll all lose btw mwahahahahaa)

    • Not_true

      You first.

  • jheller

    Dude for all the xbots comments on n4g. Gtfo fast this is a ponyville site. You will soon be overwhelmed with comments of negativity even mentioning the word Xbox in a positive way.

    • Not_true

      There’s a lot of microsoft shills in here spreading lies and FUD.

      • EmpeRawD

        There is one Sony Pony in here posting with multiple accounts.

    • chrisredfield31

      Even I knew coming in that the comments would be skewed towards Xbox. You apparently haven’t been commenting much on Disqus-enabled sites posted on N4G.

  • jheller

    Of course fh2 rain effects are better because it will be available at launch and not a patch down the road.

    • Not_true

      Makes no sense at all.

      Weather is confirmed free in a patch soon after launch. It was demoed
      in-game to journalists at E3 2014, it’s basically finished.

  • Dirkster_Dude

    There is no way we can tell from the above video, which is better. The rain is at a different points in the rain cycle. It looks to me like the DriveClub video shows it actually raining whereas the Forza Horizon 2 video shows a wet street after it has rained. In addition to that the videos aren’t even the same resolution. Then there looks like the video at certain points was compressed. While GearNuke has all the details of how they took the videos and could make an accurate determination of which they feel is better I don’t see how anyone commenting can possibly read the article, watch the videos, and honestly say which is better. We don’t have enough information. Regardless of that they both look good to me.

    • Not_true

      PS4 exclusives will have better visuals than Xbox the entire gen.

      • Dirkster_Dude

        If your ignorance works for you that is great. I would rather actually determine that when the game comes out and then buy the best version of the type of game I’m interested in based on facts instead of fantasy.

        • chrisredfield31

          You can see WITH YOUR OWN EYES with all the video that’s been posted on DC yesterday. It’s SUPERIOR, HANDS DOWN. You’re the one living in a fantasy world bud.

          • Dirkster_Dude

            Based on these crap videos found on this website you can’t possibly tell what game has better rain effects. That is all I’m talking about. Also to make the assumption like Not_true did to assume PS4 will always be better is what someone living in a fantasy does.

          • chrisredfield31

            And you’re being an imbecile by not doing your due diligence by searching these videos on YT where it’s fully posted in full HD. As I alluded to, “full video” and “posted yesterday.

          • Dirkster_Dude

            Amazing, you respond by completely ignoring what I commented on. It doesn’t matter what other videos show because my comments were about this website and the crap detail the videos show for comparisons. YT (assume you me YouTube?) is irrelevant. I don’t actually care which is better. They both look good. All I said was you can’t tell, which is better from this article with the information they provided. The fact that you seem to ignore that fact is more telling of your intelligence than mine.

          • chrisredfield31

            Straw man. You ignore the fact that the full information is out there for you, and instead attack Gearnuke and others for not doing your own due diligence. You can criticize Gearnuke for the poor comparison but instead of that, you attack other people and you failed to make your case. Who is the unintelligent one here? Not me.

          • Dirkster_Dude

            Never attacked GearNuke. I only made the comment that the information they provided isn’t enough to tell which game has the better rain effects. That is it. By the way, what is “Straw man” even supposed to mean?

  • AlexH

    DriveClub looks boring, no colors. Just greys.

      They’re racing in Scotland. In a rain storm. It’s not supposed to be colourful.

  • Im_On_a_Drug_Called_Charlie_Sh

    Strange how the droplets just sit there statically on the hood in Forza, wouldn’t they move up the hood do to wind pressure as the car moves forward, looks lame but hey I guess the xtots will damage control and defend it cause you know “open world vs controlled environment” or whatever excuse they’re using for the day, LOL.

    • chrisredfield31

      Xtots lol that’s new!

  • Guest

    LMAO forza looks cartoony as fuck. While DC looks photo realistic.

    • Im_On_a_Drug_Called_Charlie_Sh

      Absolutely right, and the only people who think otherwise are just in xtot denial.

  • RA3030

    Wow! That’s so cool what Microsoft did with the cardboard cut out rain to match the cardboard people. That’s what I call “next gen”.

  • Dangerousjo 1985

    Fh2 looks better DC has more rain in it because of the stormy looking weather at that time of day.. Fh2 is sunny with a little rain fall..

    • Im_On_a_Drug_Called_Charlie_Sh

      Funny how that rain just sits their statically on the hood while the car is accelerating but hey you go ahead and be in denial Microsoft likes it that way.

  • RJ

    I’m a big Xbox fan boy

    And I’m really hoping that driveclub flops just so i can rub it in my mate’s face (he loves his ps4)

    but Damm DriveClub looks freaking awesome!!!!

    If it plays as well as it looks, then off to the store for me :)

    • Gerry Gantry

      Just do it man, get both. PS4 is unbelieveable

      • Not_true

        Just another malicious, delusional, constantly WRONG fanboy shill spreading COMPLETE LIES and hatred.

        PS4 has many great AAA games that gamers love. That’s why it’s 8.5+ million in sales and growing. Sony’s large number of well funded 1st parties will ensure PS4 has a ton of great AAA exclusives, as many or more than PS3.

        PS4 has 36+ AAA games from July to December 2014, or 6 per month. 3rd party AAA games will be increasingly multiplatform on both consoles.

        1st/2nd party studios include Japan Studio, Polyphony Digital, Naughty Dog, SCE Bend, SCE San Diego, SCE Santa Monica, Sucker Punch, Pixel Opus, Evolution Studios, Guerrilla Games, Guerrilla Cambridge, SCE London, Media Molecule, Ready at Dawn, Quantic Dream, etc.

        For some reason PS4 keeps selling like hotcakes despite attempts to downplay its library. All 3 consoles have good exclusive games, it’s only fanboys trying to trash one or the other and pretend it has “no gaems lolol”.

        Some of the AAA PS3 2013 exclusives: Beyond Two Souls, The Last of Us, Puppeteer, God of War: Ascension
        Gran Turismo 6, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch (not 1st party), Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus. Expect a similar level of long term PS4 support with tons of 1st party games.

        PS4 rest of 2014 exclusives Jun-Dec: The Last of Us Remake, Driveclub, LittleBigPlanet 3, Infamous: First Light, Samurai Warriors 4, Natural Doctrine, Guilty Gear Xrd, Singstar, Resogun DLC, and lots of indies.

        PS4 2015 exclusives (announced): Bloodborne, The Order, Ratchet & Clank Remastered, Uncharted 4, Let It Die, Deep Down, and lots of indies.

        PS4 AAA games from July-Dec 2014: The Last of Us Remastered, Driveclub, LittleBigPlanet 3, Infamous: First Light, Samurai Warriors 4, Guilty Gear Xrd Sign, Singstar, Sniper Elite III, Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition, Madden NFL 15, Metro: Redux, Destiny, NHL 15, FIFA 15, Alien: Isolation, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Grand Theft Auto V, NBA 2K15, NBA Live 15, Battlefield: Hardline, Evolve, Just Dance 2015, The Evil Within, Assassin’s Creed Unity, WWE 2K15, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, The Crew, Far Cry 4, Lords of the Fallen, Shadow Warrior, Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate, Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments, LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, The Legend of Korra, etc. Plus a truckload of indies.

        PS4 has the superior visuals on all console AAA multiplats, more dev support including indies, a large number of first party studios, free to play games and MMOs, and unannounced 1st party games. Titanfall 2 and future 3rd party games will almost certainly be on PS4.

    Unfair comparison, but that’s typical pauper fishing for hits on N4G.
    You’re not looking at a rainstorm in FH2. Plus those GIFs don’t do justice to anything. Pretty pathetic actually.
    Graphics don’t make a good game and DriveClub looks like a demo compared to FH2. LOLz!

    • Gerry Gantry

      GRAPHICS MAKE A GREAT GAME, a lot BETTER. Why can’t you Xbox delusional morons get this. PS4 has great gameplay and the BEST GPAPHICS. Xbox just has great gameplay. I’m being honest. Your graphics are not better than the PS4 in anyway shape or form.

    • Im_On_a_Drug_Called_Charlie_Sh

      Look a butthurt xtot hiding behind a guest account what a surprise. Amazing how our “demos” look better then your full games.

    • Not_true

      Driveclub got great impressions at E3 2014, it’s like a next-gen PGR with connected social features and club competition. Most E3 2014 impressions state it plays well and looks great. It will review well and sell decently. It’s the best looking console racing game. Driveclub’s weather effects look amazing running on PS4′s more powerful console hardware.

      This game is channeling Project Gotham Racing, one of Xbox’s most beloved arcade racers. Those games didn’t have any customization beyond paint jobs and you know what? They were still amazing. It’s an arcade racer, different from sim racers, it doesn’t necessarily need fine tuning customizations. Not inherently better or worse.

      Closed and open world racers are different experiences, not inherently better or worse than one another.

      Weather is confirmed free in a patch soon after launch. It was demoed in-game to journalists at E3 2014, it’s basically finished.

      Lol… They look soooooo much better than in driveclub.

          • Gerry Gantry

            LOL, the truth is, that Forza Horizon’s environments look like utter CRAP compared to Drive Club, same goes with Forza 5. Drive Club just blows everything out of the water, AND EVERYONE CAN SEE IT, it’s OBVIOUS TO ALL

    • slasaru

      The people on sides of the road look like nothing in Driveclub. You don’t have them

      • zeuanimals

        Yeah… If it was raining out in a mountainous area, I don’t think I’d be out there. How rally and street races are, people don’t normally hang around the middle. They tend to be around in the start or at the end, in Forza Horizon 2′s case, it’s the end.

        There’s also videos of the crowds in Driveclub.

      • Im_On_a_Drug_Called_Charlie_Sh

        Oh no however will we deal with not having cardboard cut out people standing on the sides of the roads, man you xtots sure are dumb.

        • d0x360

          Thats your argument? When driving by those sprites cannot be distinguished from polygons. Although based on your sad logic about the Xbox I guess if we apply it to the ps4 we end up with…the ps4 can’t handle rendering people
          Of any kind during a race not even simple sprites. Sadly despite drive club not being open world it still couldn’t pack in the track details forza has but hey at least the rain drops look good moving in that scripted path up the hood! Omg amazing!!

  • kevin

    Partial rain w/ sunshine in one snap , while a storm in the other .doesn’t seem like a fair comparison if there not driving in the same conditions .

    • Im_On_a_Drug_Called_Charlie_Sh

      The Forza droplets could have at least been moving up the hood as wind would have been acting on them from the cars forward motion instead of just sitting there statically like they were.

    • GotNews4Ya

      Oh ya, you’re right.. Rain drops completely stop moving (everywhere) after its done raining.. (including the hood of the vehicle)

      • kevin

        You found it to fair , I did not . But hey you enjoy your console as I will continue to do so with mine.

  • corvusmd

    Let me start off by saying that both games look great, and it’s actually a really close call. The problems that I have with this comparison are a few things. Anyone claiming absolute victory over whichever version looks best based on these gifs is clearly just seeing what they want to see. Not only are they gifs, but we are comparing raindrops….yet it’s only raining in one gif. Of course the one that is overcast with falling rain is going to look better in this comparison over the one that’s sunny and drying up the water. One is a cockpit view with no other cars so see, the other has cars kicking up water. All that being said, they both look really good and I feel it’s nearly impossible to say one looks much better than the other either way. Neither game has bragging rights as far as graphics at this point. However, DC is a lap racer with 50 cars, no tunability, etc. FH2 is an openworld game, with driveatars, 200+ cars, tunability, seamless online play, weather effects at launch and voice command GPS. It’s not quite a fair comparison being that DC is a much simpler game overall, it’s actually a testament to FH2 that despite all the extra things it does, that even if you think DC looks better….that it’s that close. The graphics on DC look great, but I’m not a huge racing fan, and when I am, it’s open world style.. being stuck to tracks does nothing for me…the only racing games I’ve gotten into in the past were the Dirt Series (for the Rally Races).

    • Gerry Gantry

      Without all that crap you just wrote. All you had to say was, “Horizon 2 is open world, enough said.”

    • Not_true

      Driveclub got great impressions at E3 2014, it’s like a next-gen PGR with connected social features and club competition. Most E3 2014 impressions state it plays well and looks great. It will review well and sell decently. It’s the best looking console racing game. Driveclub’s weather effects look amazing running on PS4′s more powerful console hardware.

      This game is channeling Project Gotham Racing, one of Xbox’s most beloved arcade racers. Those games didn’t have any customization beyond paint jobs and you know what? They were still amazing. It’s an arcade racer, different from sim racers, it doesn’t necessarily need fine tuning customizations. Not inherently better or worse.

      Closed and open world racers are different experiences, not inherently better or worse than one another.

      Weather is confirmed free in a patch soon after launch. It was demoed in-game to journalists at E3 2014, it’s basically finished.

  • xbot

    Looks like the N4SONY users got here early. “flopza” lol

  • SEGA_FAN_KAIN

    You’re seriously comparing a rain soaked race to a post light sprinkle race. It’s different times of day and the Forza Horizon 2 takes place after the rain had stopped leaving nothing but slightly damp roads and droplets on the hood of the care. The point of the Forza Horizon demo was to illustrate how weather can dynamically change depending on atmosphereic conditions.

    • Im_On_a_Drug_Called_Charlie_Sh

      If the car is accelerating in Forza wouldn’t the wind push those droplets up the hood as apposed to them just statically sitting in one place, stop making excuses like the rest of your little xtot pals and deal with the fact Drive Club is graphically superior in every way to Forza.

    • Not_true

      Driveclub has superior visuals in dry weather too. Makes sense since PS4′s hardware is more powerful.

  • Michael W

    Looks better sure, but FH2 will have rain at launch so…

    • Im_On_a_Drug_Called_Charlie_Sh

      And DC will have much better rain very shortly after so……..

      open world game vs controlled environment game ps fanboys… -_-

      • Im_On_a_Drug_Called_Charlie_Sh

        Well that’s an excuse, its not a good one but its an excuse none the less, your Microsoft overlords would be proud.

      • GotNews4Ya

        Uhm… Open world game vs controlled environment? Well actually it isn’t fully controlled, it is a living system on its own in Driveclub.. yes you can turn it on for the purpose of showing off the amazing graphics engine while competing in online matches, but It is supposed to be strictly a living thing, and can be different and randomly occur.. They even said the differences in how hard it rains / snows / sleets etc will pickup and let off and the tracks will dry after the rain stops, and a period of time under the sun has occurred..

        You are sadly mistaken if you think this is all predetermined.. because it isn’t and it isn’t necessarily “controlled” either.

      • Not_true

        Forza 5 or Horizon 2 would run better on PS4, and Driveclub would run worse on Xbox.

        • SniStre Zyx

          run better without dedicated servers :3

  • Eden’s Cross

    Comparing an open world game to a controlled environment game?

    • SniStre Zyx

      the article make no sense

      • Im_On_a_Drug_Called_Charlie_Sh

        Makes perfect sense it just xtots cant handle the fact the weather looks superior in Drive Club.

    • Im_On_a_Drug_Called_Charlie_Sh

      Its comparing weather effect to weather effects regardless of how much you’d like to spin it so you dont have to deal with it.

      • Eden’s Cross

        No it’s comparing an open world game with a controlled environment game. It’s about as pointless as comparing the foliage in the last of us to GTAV.

    • Nuno Marques

      Except Driveclub´s weather, time of day, time passage and many other options will be controllable by the player, and not just in preset options like “slight rain”, “rain”, “heavy rain”, but more like sliders where you adjust all of the parameters. They even consider height of the sun and temperature when drying surfaces for god´s sake. Driveclub is doing way more calculations than FH and still looks better.

      • Eden’s Cross

        If you think a controlled environment game is doing more calculations than a next gen open world game then I don’t think you know shit about how games work.

  • Utedude

    Drive Club is photo realistic… Insane.

  • Wargreymon559 .

    This isn’t even a contest. Flopza Horizon 2 will be downgraded just like Flopza 5.While DC will just get better and better,

    • slasaru

      Downgraded compared to what or from what?
      Lol. you gonna have cars with painted headlamps straight from PS2 again in gran turismo.
      You are in no position to talk about downgrades, sorry

      • H Karlsson

        U mad brah? Talking about a last gen game instead of the horrific downgrade that was Forza 5?
        So that´s the comparison for the day. (The E3 build vs release build)

      • Gerry Gantry

        It’s been conformed Forza 5 was downgraded. We are all betting Forza Horizon 2 will be as well.

        • Not_true

          Horizon 2 won’t be downgraded, they’re mostly showing real gameplay this time. Unlike Forza 5.

      • Im_On_a_Drug_Called_Charlie_Sh

        Forza 5 was downgraded from the E3 showing before its release, there’s been tons of article that confirm it, DC wont have any painted headlamps, get over yourself and stop acting like a complete baby. Don’t sink to the levels of a dumb xbot you’re better then that.

      • Not_true

        More malicious fanboy lies and FUD.

        No Sony exclusive PS4 1st party games have been downgraded from their initial in-game gameplay reveals.

        Gran Turismo will look amazing on PS4.

    • Hellfire

      Every console game is downgraded, DelayClub included, nice try though :P

      • Not_true

        That makes no sense at all. Driveclub is PS4 exclusive.

        Keep crying salty mustard tears and hating, though.

        • Hellfire

          You think they write code on a PS4? Are you really claiming that as a game is exclusive it’s therefore the maximum quality possible. What’s the purpose of optimisation then? It’s me who makes no sense HAHA! :P

      Obviously DC has the better visuals.

    • Nick Motsarsky

      With that kind of comment, I expect you to be no older than 10-12. FH2 will be a phenomenal game, just like the original one. And I’m getting both, unlike you retarded haters.

  • MrKnowitall

    Driveclub’s raindrops in my opinion are far superior compared to FH2.

    • slasaru

      But draw distance much better in Horizon. DC has fog even on sunny screenshots. In fact, you can never see mountains, they are all blurred and hidden. Can see only cars and the nearest environment. Which is a good choice too, but still

      • H Karlsson

        Draw dist better in FH? You crazy? A mountaineous area vs the French coast? Of course there will be fog when you are 1000 meters above sea level.

            I’d rather have far superior product as in Drive Club, over one that gets re-released every year.

            total hypocrites forza horzion is made by a different team then the team who makes forza why ain’t you playing your ps4 oh that’s right there is nothing to play,and i hate racing games but you can’t compare a free 2 play with a full on retail release

          • Wargreymon559 .

            Hey moron its not F2P.

          • d0x360

            Yes because horizon and main series forza are so similar…

            Fanboys make me so god damn sick. Ill get both games and enjoy both games. At least I know you will be getting drive club so I know which game to auto mute before I join a session.

        • d0x360

          My god you are childish. Here’s an idea! Instead of acting like a petulant 13 year old callimg people xtots for having as opinion why don’t you grow up and just enjoy whatever god damn game you buy without knocking a different game. Who cares what one has better rain?

          Here’s a fact. We know based on the first that horizon will be pure fun. Ever played drive club? No you haven’t. Jesus Christ.

      • GotNews4Ya

        Uh… Forza Horizon 2 is rocking the Forza 5 engine, which we all know had to be optimized to reach 1080p and 60 fps. The graphical fidelity they sacrificed was in the distant objects… You can still really tell that it is happening in FH2.. which makes me sad and feel like they are still stuck in last generation..

        I am actually overwhelmed with how amazing Driveclub looks.. The weather is going to be worth the wait.. Yum yum yum

        • Fay_Z

          did you help develop forza? please shut up, and delayclub is also 30fps

          • Agent_Blade

            I’m glad it does too. Looks like no cardboard cutout bystanders and environments for me:)

          • d0x360

            Yes because we all know when playing a racing game the number 1 thing we do is look at the people standing beside the road. Omg sprite people! The horror!

          • GotNews4Ya

            What are you talking about? It just takes someone with moderate knowledge and the ability to read articles to find out information. I watched both pressers and they announced at E3 that they were building Forza Horizon 2 on the “Amazing Forza 5 Engine”.

            Getting upset with me, doesn’t mean much.. It just makes you seem goofy, I didn’t attack anyone, and maybe if Forza was delayed, it would look as good as Driveclub or as you put it.. “Delayclub”.

            I am just going to say that, I’d rather them delay a game and make it amazing, rather than not delay it and act like its amazing.

          • Not_true

            The pop in is easy to notice in Horizon 2 footage. Sorry if that upsets you.

        • Julius Collier

          Both games rub 1080p/30fps

          • GotNews4Ya

            Ahh, well that’s cool. I don’t mind what the specs are.. all I know is that I thought Forza looked good up close, but when it came to draw distance, it looks like cardboard cut outs.. and that’s disappointing for this generation.

            I am not a big race fan, my girlfriend is though, and I buy them for her, and I always like to get games that show the graphical prowess of games, and I was definitely uninterested in Driveclub up until I seen the weather system this past week.. It looks sick.

          • d0x360

            Cardboard cutouts…so you read someone post that somewhere and now you repeat repeat repeat.

            The comment makes zero sense. The draw distance looks like cardboard cut outs? You always know when a kid is posting online. That or a stupid adult who knows nothing about rendering.

            You like to get games that show the prowess? Then why the hell did you buy a ps4? Get a ****ing PC you rube.

          • GotNews4Ya

            Such an angry person. Sorry fella, I have an opinion that doesn’t match yours.. Yes.. you got me, it may be a little bit above cardboard cut outs, but it still looks terrible compared to the amazing detail on the vehicles in Forza. Did you read anything I wrote? I think Forza is the best racer out right now, and I own it. I also think that Driveclub looks fantastic, and I will own it too.. Does that make me a bad person? Does that make me stupid? No. But apparently my interest or opinion on a video game, with a discussion between someone else and myself.. seemed to effect your life someway and somehow. Please stop being so angry over an opinion. I am a video game player. I own a PC, its a nice one, but I choose to play console games, because.. That’s just what I am more comfortable playing on.. Not that I don’t play a PC game here and there.. and what’s wrong with wanting to purchase my games on the most powerful console this generation? If I get a Steambox.. will you be mad at me too? Sorry.. I really didn’t understand how my decisions effected you bro.. I will surely be more considerate.. Care to pay my bills for me? Because If you aren’t paying my bills, you ain’t got no room to talk to me about what I should and shouldn’t do. Go play “Mommy” to someone else.

      • Agent_Blade

        Duuuude you need to look at earlier videos of Driveclub. The draw distance in this game with its environments are some of the best I have EVER seen in a racing game or just about any game period for that matter.

      • Sketp3k

        You are blind. Everything about Drive Club far exceeds that of Forza..

      • Michael Norris

        You do realize that it’s raining and the fog is part of the effect right? DC has way better environments the weather systems kills FH2 by a country mile.My brother thought that Drive Club video was RL until he noticed the UI.

      • Michael Norris

        DC has no fog in sunny shots stop trolling,I have a shit load of 1080p screenshots on my computer and Ps3 their isn’t any fog.Also in real life the environment is always crystal clear.FH2 looks like a video game,the lighting system is meh even GT6 has a better lighting system then FH2. The only props I gave FH2 is the fact its open world with 200+ cars that is it.The graphics are way behind DC,only the most bias of MS owners fail to understand it.
