To me the cars feel different. Some are really hard to control for me, some I love like the Lotus

It does make me wonder what they did over the last year though. Day one server issues after a year delay doesn't look good. Reviews seem decent though.
I would kind of understand if it was say, Gran Turismo 7 or something.

Like getting mad over a video game. I'll never do it, or get that mad. But that swatting stuff kids do because of CoD of all games.

Right now with FH2 being so hot, I think they should have either released this a month earlier ( which it probably wasn't ready) or waited until November and released it in its completed form with weather and working online.


Anyone with both systems is probably playing FH2 right now with little interest in this. Add another poor launch and people like me are saying nah...I'll wait and see about this one.

Just read this game was ready to go last year but they've been tweaking it...they had a FULL year to add wheel support and haven't done crap!!!! How you can release a state of the art game and not provide support for the hardcore racers is beyond me... it would be a sin to play this game on a crappy PS4 controller. I have already setup up an awesome race rig and invested $1000 into it, I've been waiting a year for some good news ...My buddies and I where having a blast playing in my basement theater GT5 on the PS3 on Friday nights... with 2 full race rig setups. I shoulda just stuck with the PS3, the PS4 isn't impressive at all a year later.

Hope the initial sales are dismal! If SONY releases a patch the night before YOU BET I'd buy it in a heartbeat!
My man, drinking and virtual driving...LOVE IT and do it regularly!!

I'm glad I get to play it now, love it. Of course I want to play it for myself with the dynamic weather as well. I'd also like to have photo mode for better pictures (hopefully clicking L3 to instant freeze for the pictures).

I do hope they add quite a few more locations in the DLC. There is a borderline decent amount of tracks in the 5 areas but it could definitely use more locations. I love the really long courses, there is one that starts in the low lands and works it way up in altitude to snow elevation That is my one concern, just not enough tracks for the long haul. Destiny is very disappointing in that area..

edit: adding the option to use you own music would be nice as well though I don't think you can put your own music on the PS4.

I wonder how long it takes them to create some of these courses. They clearly put a lot of care into them.

Yep, I'm a paid owner and hoping for the same.

I believe the complaints stem from the fact that this was promised at launch and that it would be free...the ENTIRE game. Then we were told just a small portion of it would be free. Then, without any advance notice whatsoever, we're told that the free version can't be released because that would add too much to their already overloaded server load.

Give me a break. I'm surprised there aren't more complaints.
But can we really complain for this? It's sad to see technical issues prevent timely release but the rest is self entitled BS.

Also it was never the whole game, but a "ps plus edition". Check the E3 slides to verify.

I also see people complain about the free PS+ titles. At least there you are paying a subscription, but that program leads the industry in pure value. But no AAA title this month ensures nerd rage.

This is a racing game... the exhaust note should be the only music you need.

It is quite nice playing without music, but the option for both would be good.

The one graphical area that I'd love an update to would be for Watch Dogs water. I imagine that would draw too much. I think the water is the weakest aspect of the visuals. Overall though it is amazingly immersive racing experience to drive these environments.

No I like my Classical station playing while cruising around. I mentioned already engine sounds very muffled. I feel like I am listening to the car beside me and not my own.

I'd rather hear music over the exhaust. I've never liked loud cars or motorcycles.

What about remapping buttons? I wanted to remap the Emergency Brake to the bottom buttton, which I think is the X button. I'm not sure if I overlooked that option, or if there is just no way to do it.

I am hoping for snow on the track. A light snow falling down and if you are not in first you can see the fresh tire tracks in the snow. Then when you lap around, where the tires didn't touch the road it could be thicker in those areas making it harder to drive through if you hit it.

I know I am dreaming but it would be sweet.

Just hold R1 or L1 + down on the directional pad to roll down the windows and let the sweet sounds in.

Love the attention to detail.

That would be awesome. Didn't Motorstorm do that with mud in the first game? Though it think it was only temporarily.

Very curious to see the snow and rain and how it plays into driving. Some of these courses will be deadly when slick or icy if they actually change how the road feels in weather. It would be cool to have an option for just the visuals or one with visuals and handling impact.

Rolling down my windows will cause drag and slow my ass down. I need to be going full speed if I plan on taking you off the road.

Whaaa? A year delay, an ambiguous reference to a PS+ edition with little explanation until the last few weeks/months, and now a release that pulls the promised free version, but maintains the paid ones?

It's not self-entitled BS, it's holding a company accountable for their shady marketing practices. And I should go on record to say that I never intended to buy this game, but perhaps will download the free version to take it for a spin. I'm just not a big racer fan.

But that's not the point. The point is they say they're experiencing server problems and to counter that with not releasing the free version. Are they continuing to sell the full game? Yep. Might those sales also lead to an excessive server load? Just doesn't seem to pass the sniff test. One almost has to wonder if they're engaging in a bit of trickery. I'm sure a large percentage of consumers never realized there was going to be a free version. Perhaps this is the developers way of increasing their sales.

Add all of that to the tidbit of a $10 preorder bonus and you have to wonder if they knew they had a doomed launch.

I'm not angry, slighted, or in any way miffed. What I am is mystified by this one year late release and the way in which they handled yesterday's release. And give me a break, "server issues." It's 2014 and you have to have a pretty good idea about what the install base is going to look like. Server issues are still a thing?

Oh c'mon rookie, you need the visuals and the handling. Take the training wheels off.

I never played motorstorm so I am not sure.

Motorstorm is great but with bad AI and overly difficult. DriveClub has much better AI and difficulty curve for me so far at least.

You have seen the screens of my cars without rain or snow If the game had full destruction the car would not look like that, I wouldn't finish most races

My 6 year old managed to make a car do a barrel roll, no idea how.

Driveclub has set tracks where FH is open world from what I understand.

The only open world racer I played was NFS which was ok. I think I prefer set tracks better anyway. It's fun shaving seconds off and that's not as fun in an open world.

FH has both options. The races are sort of set tracks as you have checkpoints you have to cross through. To prevent you making your own shortcuts. You can travel both on and off road when you like but at the end of the day you need to pass through the checkpoints.


Has anyone seen if the multiplayer option is up?

I just remembered you have an XB1, try the demo out. Its a long demo. You can then compare both demos.

Probably a good reason to dust off my xbone. Hopefully the demo is SP. I think my Live sub is lapsed again.
