E3 2014 Awards: Best Racing Game
- Posted June 13th, 2014 at 06:43 EDT by Michael Harradence
Evolution Studios’ DriveClub may have had a bit of a bumpy ride as of late - after all, it was delayed for nearly a year to October 2014 - but that hasn’t dampened our enthusiasm for the ambitious title. The PlayStation 4-exclusive racer boasts some sumptuous visuals, and it's easily one of the most technically-accomplished games yet to grace Sony’s next-generation powerhouse.
More importantly, the game plays like a dream. So much so in fact that PSU’s Will Robinson described it as “one of the best driving games that I’ve ever had the chance to play” after he went hands-on with it at E3. With ample social features, meticulously-detailed tracks, and silky-smooth handling, DriveClub is shaping up to be one of the most important racing games of this generation; it may even give Gran Turismo a run for its money in terms of pure adrenaline-pumping action.
DriveClub is scheduled for release in the U.S. on October 7 and in Europe on October 10----
