We recently pointed out that Project CARS has been hailed as the highest rated racing game available on the PS4. It’s true! We had statistics to back it up and everything!
Admittedly, it doesn’t have much competition as racing games are not common on the PS4 and few of them have been any good. Nevertheless, Driveclub is SONY’s exclusive IP that many people have enjoyed and claimed to be the best looking racing game of all time, if not the best looking game of all time full stop.
There’s no two ways about it; Driveclub does look absolutely immense and the way it looks when the dynamic weather system kicks in is hugely impressive. I’ve seen little else that can match Driveclub when playing in the cockpit and in the rain with the windscreen wipers active at full speed. But has Project CARS knocked it off its graphical perch?
After all, Project CARS too, is a wonderful game to look at and despite it being visually inferior to Driveclub in some ways such as the occasional pop-in textures, it is superior in others – for instance I personally feel that the lighting in Project CARS is actually better than Driveclub’s in the rain, even if the actual effect itself is somewhat to be desired.
But I want you to decide. Is Project CARS a better looking game than Driveclub? Which would you show off to your friends to prove your console’s value? Watch the handy graphics comparison video (courtesy of MotoGamesTV) below and let me know.
