Why does Mario Kart 8 look more impressive than Drive Club?

#1XenoSoulsPosted 5/10/2014 1:07:02 PM
Mario Kart 8 looks like a generation ahead of Drive Club, I didn't think this was possible on Wii U.
I watched the IGN Drive Club footage and it honestly looked worse to me than PGR4 on Xbox 360. It's only 30FPS, texture detail is last gen, and the racing looks about as exciting as a Sunday drive around my local supermarket. Plus the engine noises sound like someone hoovering up cat hairs off a sofa with a dust buster.

Mario kart 8 has 60FPS, better graphics, better music and sound effects, and is just a more exciting racing game. Now we know why Sony are giving it away for free on PSN+, and why they delayed it and took so long to show people gameplay footage. Mario Kart 8 literally destroys Drive Club in all areas.

How is this possible when Sony were hyping Drive Club as the best racer of all time?

Sony should put DriveClub in a PS3/360/WiiU gen engine just for the numbers.

For the same reason that a plate of nachos looks better than a plate of cheesy waffle fries.

Because you have Nintendo fanboy goggles on?

I'm pretty sure MK8 is still at 60FPS regardless of what goggles you wear. 60FPS at 720p still looks smoother than 30FPS at 1080p

TC is mistaking Art Style for Graphics.

Pretty much this. Also TC, is it possible that you already favor mario games? Besides, MK8 would obviously look more exciting with all the power ups and its unique style.
