While I was impressed with Driveclub's smart social media-inspired challenges and team-up mechanics, all of these elements have one major requirement: functioning online support. While online servers worked flawlessly with the lighter load prior to launch, they have more or less ceased to function in the disastrous week since the game launched.

According to developer Evolution Studios, the server problems are not just from high player load but tied into actual buggy server code in the game. Whatever the issue, we have not been able to connect to Driveclub's online options at all since launch day. This includes the multiplayer modes, challenges and clubs, the latter of which has vehicles locked behind it as well.

Driveclub still features solid racing without its online features, but the tour mode alone is not enough to pull in serious attention. Challenges and clubs are a core, necessary part of the game, and they are currently largely inaccessible. It's a shell of the game it's supposed to be. As such, we're updating our Driveclub score until such a time as we have evidence that the game's servers are consistently up and running.

Polygon lowered the score to a 5. 
Previously it was 7.5

Then the servers will be fixed and they will up it back to 7.5!  Polygon is such a joke!

Yeah there really isn't too much to do with no server access. Also, I need to download the new patch to use network features but I cannot download it due to an error. This really is a mess. Right now that 5/10 is pretty accurate tbh

Wow what a mess. I was so hyped for this and i was planning on buying the game at retail or possibly getting the PS+ upgrade. Now I'm not doing either.
Vizioneck STILL not banned at my workplace \O/

What's taking so long? Must have been a big oversight on evolutions part. This has become unacceptable and I'm pretty lenient about stuff like this.

I didn't give my opinion about that.

BUT IT IS UTTER RIDICULOUS TO LEFT HAPPEN SOMETHING LIKE WHAT HAPPENED WITH DRIVECLUB.

It is the worst thing and needs to be blamed... it is even worst than BF4 that was a crud at launch.

But it's fixed right?

But yeah this is a different kind of worse than bf4.

I really don't know... I was waiting to get the Plus version before buy the game but they delayed this version for undetermined time... the responses from Evolution Studio was really really bad too.

After all the delays they could had a better launch... it was the worst possible.

I don't care about the reviews at all because I think 70 is good but the technical mess is really ridiculous.
