DRIVECLUB GC 07 1024x576 Driveclub Review

As an avid Gran Turismo fan, arguably the best racing game from Sony and possibly the best racing game to date, I wasn’t too sure whether I would enjoy Driveclub. Release after release of countless racing games has been extremely disappointing because they fell short of measuring up to the frontrunners of the racing game category. Gran Turismo still captures my attention, and so my expectations for PlayStation 4’s release of Driveclub were set very high.

First impressions weren’t too good, despite not even having played the game at that moment because of the delayed release. Evolution Studios could have postponed it on purpose to increase the anticipation, or it could have been due to failed beta testing. My vote is on the latter. Evolution Studios has yet to make up for its failures in the last five years or so.

When the release date came rolling around, we got our copy and dedicated an entire day to just playing Driveclub. I really wanted to know the game, and the only way I will that this game was good if it successfully sustained my attention, and distracting me from doing anything remotely social that day. Well, I did end up racing the eight tracks set in India, but I have to say, I’m not sure if the game lived up to all the hype. Sure, there are some great things that can be said about Driveclub, but many have dubbed the latest racing game from Evolution Studios with the reputation of being a Forza killer, but I have yet to experience that.

DRIVECLUB GC 021 1024x576 Driveclub Review

Driveclub does have its charms in terms of design. It stands out visually as it mimics arcade classics, thus casting a wider net for the audience. I think that upgraded feel of a vintage form of game is something that a lot of people are actually going to enjoy. It definitely struck a note with me as it reminded me of the good old adolescent years spent in arcades, racing all my friends religiously until I became the king of the hill. Can you tell I was obsessed with racing? I probably still am, given that I still go out to buy the much awaited racing games in the video game industry, like this one which is currently making noise as a force to reckon with.

Back to the mechanics of the game. I think the astounding graphics worked well as a distraction for the lack of variety the game offered. The models of the cars were first class, the backdrop of Indian nature was astounding, yet at the end of it all, the visuals weren’t enough to save the simplicity of the game. As much as I enjoyed the trip down memory lane, the games that you expect to be played on PS4, or any of the latest models of gaming platforms, is an increased level of sophistication. If this game was released maybe five or so years ago it would have retained my interest and other gamers’ as well. Driveclub is just what it is, a racing game.

The dynamics don’t really ignite a fire that I get with Gran Turismo. The only reason why I kept on playing was to try to give the game a chance. I thought that maybe, the longer I played, the better it would get. Something more engaging would come up, but no, it was just as expected. It had the charms of the video arcade, but those types of games stay in the arcade for a reason. It’s child’s play compared to other racing games, even Gran Turismo, but I guess the one thing that we can acknowledge is that the developer’s aim to appeal to a great audience through arcade mechanics was evident.

DRIVECLUB GC 03 1024x576 Driveclub Review

The game isn’t all that bad, but it isn’t all that great either. It works as a good way to pass time; however, Driveclub won’t have me spending days in my basement with little to no contact from the outside world. The game is easy to maneuver, so in terms of user friendliness, Sony scored there. This definitely is not a game for the serious video game lover.

A storyline for the journey have really saved this game. It’s really just all about racing, and if that’s all I expected out of a racing game, I would have never left the arcade. Driveclub did not live up to all the hype. There could have been more offered to distinguish itself as a competitor in the racing game category, but the lack of individualism makes it mediocre; standard, rather than revolutionary. The game is not exactly boring, but it’s not exactly attention-grabbing either. Driveclub is not something I’d play on a regular basis; I’d really have to have nothing else more exciting to do before I voluntarily have this pop up on my PS4.

DRIVECLUB GC 08 1024x576 Driveclub Review

Perhaps the future release of the game will garner more interest. There is supposed to be a dynamite weather system and a photo mode. It will increase visual appeal for sure. I might pick up the PS Plus Edition, which I forgot to do when I started with the game, even though it was for free for current subscribers. The free edition of the game has 11 tracks in India, 10 cars and all of the multiplayer modes. Maybe the addition of the three tracks will do it for me, playing against my friends until I became number one just like the old arcade days.

I’m not going to lie, there are some promises with this game, and given the past screw ups from developer Evolution Studios, it could use a bit of success. Driveclub is overall all right albeit underwhelming, but is it good enough to be the Gran Turismo or Forza killer? At this stage in time, it is doubtful; however, a lot can happen between this recent release and the next one, so I would have to say that there is a high potential.

For those who do not know it yet, the Shadow of Mordor, the latest action role-playing video game set in The Lord of the Rings universe, was released on the 30th of September, 2014. It was developed by Monolith Productions and distributed by Warner Bros.

The game is set sometime between the end of The Hobbits story and the start of the Lord of the Rings saga. Expect to encounter the ubiquitous Uruks and other out of this world characters that are patently of the Lord of the Rings universe. Both Tolkein fans and video games fanatics will surely like the plot that is the backbone of this video game.

shadowofmordor1 Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

The game features awesome visuals in stronger and brighter color palettes. For this alone, this is an RPG that I cannot wait to delve into, though I find the landscape revolting as it is constantly littered with corpse that make it appear that there is so much violence involved. But then the game is restricted only for ages 18 and up, so the amount of blood and gore involved should not be a major concern.

When entering the realm of Mordor, you can see an environment that is pretty polished and neat, which means that producers took pains in bringing us the best graphics possible. Everything is in fine detailed resolution so it is a pleasure to the sights, and gives a more realistic feel.

The music is rather plain, given that it has its own dedicated soundtrack. But the producers invested on voice actors which added to the appeal of this video game.

shadowofmordor5 Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

The game’s hero, Talion, is a captain ranger of Gondor who is tasked to guard the Black Gate of Mordor. The game opens with Talion and his family captured and brutally slaughtered by the minions of Sauron as an offering to summon the wraith of Celebrimbor. But Celebrimbor merged with the ranger and Talion is revitalized with wraith-like capabilities and heads into Mordor to exact his revenge. In Mordor, Talion discovers that Celebrimbor, the wraith who had him revived, is the greatest Elven smithmaster of the 2nd Age and the maker of the Rings of Power, who likewise seeks revenge against Sauron.

Such is the backstory that leads to the many and complicated missions in the game. The player plays the role of Talion, and possesses the abilities of a ranger and a wraith which are handy when in battle against armies of Uruks. As a ranger, Talion is able to move through areas largely unnoticed by the enemies. As a wraith, he is able to control the minds and persuade people to tell him secrets and do things at his command.

The game is an open world video game that allows players to pursue quests available to them, depending on the region where they are currently situated. There are main missions and side missions, and the player has the freedom to take on side missions as a means to strengthen the character, or just for the sheer fun of completing the quests.

shadowofmordor4 Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

The shadow of Mordor uses a new technology called the Nemesis System. The system has the ability to “remember” the player’s interactions with specific characters and their types as they encounter them in the game, and adjusts the manner in which these characters react to each encounter with Talion. This allows characters to continually develop as they interact with the hero. For example, an Uruk who was previously defeated by Talion using fire will have the motivation to exact revenge for being disfigured due to burning. This makes every interaction personal.

The player’s immediate concerns would be to level up Talion’s abilities as a ranger and as a wraith. It is the player’s choice whether he or she wants a more powerful wraith or an agile ranger.

While a player can go anywhere in the map as he or she pleases, some levels will have to be completed in order to unlock higher levels. In higher levels, it is important that your character has also acquired higher levels of abilities. Otherwise, a successful campaign will never be possible.

The plot may seem complicated and have a big number of forgettable characters as well. However, the game features a lot of exciting opportunities for combat and a great number of side quests that will truly quench any gamer’s thirst for action and achievements. In other games, the side quests are usually boring and can be a waste of time. Not in this RPG. The side missions are as spectacular and challenging as the main missions.

If you have been playing games like Assassin Creed and Batman Arkham City, the game play will appear familiar. This is because in most aspects, save for the plot, the Shadow of Mordor is a nice mix of features from both video games.

shadowofmordor3 Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

The storyline is the biggest highlight of this game. The combat and action is highly expected. However, the plot also includes political machinations that will require the characters to extract information from enemies, sow gossip and other strategies in order to get past through levels. It is not all blood and gore, and that is what makes this video game all the more exciting.

The story, as well as the twists and the surprises at each level, are over-all satisfying. The storytelling is perfectly executed and of course, it ends with Talion being victorious.

The exciting storyline, not to mention that it is derived from a popular work of fiction, where Gollum – a popular character – appears in some scenes, coupled with great visuals will make for exciting, fun, and long hours of gameplay. My only complaint is that I had to read a pretty lengthy set of instructions before I get to play. However, I am sure you can survive it as well.

Over-all, the Shadow of Mordor will be a sure-fire hit and a strong contender as the Game of the Year. Like any gamers out there, I cannot wait to complete those missions in record time.

Qualified teams from distant areas will be flown-in to the Monthly Brawl venue all expenses paid!

“We’re excited to launch this new tournament because of what it means for players and internet cafés,” says Playweb General Manager Jake San Diego. “Aside from the fact that daily online tournaments with daily prizes have never been done before, we feel that this type of tournament contributes positively to the steady growth of the Philippine pro-gaming scene.”

Strife is a free-to-play Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) game developed by American company S2 Games. With features like gold sharing, customizable items, and a pet system for that extra hand in battle. Strife is designed to take the stress out of the usual battle arena game. Strife is published locally by Playweb Games under the Level Up! brand in the Philippines.

Strife is now on Open Beta, so anyone can easily sign up for a free account.
