Here we can see a head-to-head comparison of rain simulation in Driverclub and Project CARS respectively. The above mention games blow all other titles out of the water when it comes to simulating weather conditions.
At first we can see the interpretation of light rain while driving the Caterham R500 Superlight, and as it seems the “light” rain in Project CARS is a little bit too heavy according to the reviews.
The video then switches its focus on the heavy rain conditions while racing in the Audio R8 V10 Coupe plus, where we can see that the heavy rain in Driverclub could use some beefing up. The spraying effect from the car’s rear end is not as distinguishable as in Project CARD where this effect was replicated almost perfectly if a little over exaggerated.
The last part reveals a first person point of view, where the different approach to water splashing on the windscreen or the helmet of the driver, depending on the vehicle, is more then noticeable. Project CARS’ approach looks a little bit on the unusual side while the Driverclub nails it perfectly in this instance.
The footage comes from YouTube channel MotoGamesTV. For more on the Playstation 4 exclusive, Driveclub, check out the official site. Project CARS will be coming to the Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC in the middle of May in Europe and US, and some time in 2015 (presumably) for the Wii U.
