Best PS4 Games #35 – Driveclub

Developer: Evolution Studios

Synopsis: Imagine all the fun of driving games’ single player modes, only with the added bonuses of playing alongside a crew of other drivers through integrated online functionality. That’s the nature of Driveclub, which takes the team aspect to heart by letting you join up with others to make a club. Completing challenges and races with good performances improves the reputation of your club, which helps everyone involved unlock bonuses. This comes baked into a game with races, time trials, championship tournaments and vehicle customization.

Why it’s one of the 50 best PS4 games: Although it would have been a lot more effective as a launch title, Driveclub absolutely blows by the console competition in terms of straight visuals. The dynamic weather system makes a gorgeous mountain course explode into a lively rain storm at a moment’s notice. In-course challenges for club points make players accustomed to different aspects of racing optimization to slowly train them to become better drivers. The inclusion of bike racing on top adds variety to the experience without sacrificing the game’s core.

Driveclub, while a frustrating online experience at launch, has taken its time to win back players and has rewarded their patience with a complete racing game unlike any other.
