Best PS4 Games List – #22 Driveclub
Developer: Evolution Studios
Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment
Release Date: October 7, 2014
Driveclub serves as one of the most gorgeous driving games on the market. A PS4 exclusive, the game takes simulation racing and tweaks it ever so slightly towards arcade without suffering too much in the authenticity department. The main draw for this racing game is the clubs you can form with up to 6 people, driving success for your club by completing tasks, races, challenges and single-player events. Utilizing a points system based on completing certain tasks mid-race, Driveclub brings variety to what you’re doing for each event.
The dynamic weather functionality is a big part of what will drive users towards playing Driveclub. As photo-realistic as the game’s dozens of locations appear in normal daylight, the game’s engine blossoms when individual raindrops on your windshield move and react based on their physics. Snow cascading down has the same effect, and completely changes the layout, feel and visual appeal for each course you race upon.
With true-to-life recreations of dozens of famous race tracks, the varying styles of cars to race in, as well as impressive team-based racing mechanics, Driveclub is a perfect example of the evolution of racing games.
