Driveclub Bikes Review

Driveclub is not only presenting cars only, by adding an expansion now Bikes and motorcycles are also available for your pleasure.

As the name suggests, Driveclub Bikes is an expansion starring motorcycles with a price of $14.99 if you already own Driveclub, although for $19.99 it is available as a standalone edition as well. Standalone edition is only for those of lovers of bike and has no interest to cars at all.

If you choose the standalone expansion, Driveclub Bikes includes all circuits so far released in Driveclub. Driveclub Bikes come with twelve licensed superbikes of the most important manufacturers like Honda, KTM, Bimota, BMW, Yamaha, Ducati and Kawasaki and more.

Bikes are modeled very beautifully as what we used to see from Evolution Studios, they also implement differences in each bikes control as well as differences in acceleration and top speed.

 

The competition modes are now divided in two categories , Bikes DLC coming with its own tour, and there 162 new stars to collect to get full completion. Collecting these stars are same just as the events of the classic Driveclub, compete in races, get stars depending on the obtained position and optional objectives you completed.

The other modes are the same as Driveclub, including exclusive multiplayer for Bikes only at the moment which may change in the future, but for now we can not mix the two categories. Unique events, sending challenges or clubs invites to other users are also same as the classic game. Bikes DLC also has new bikes to unlock and by leveling up you get vinyl customization which is another similarity with the classic version. Bikes DLC has its own set of new trophies, including a new Platinum.

Good

  • Expansion coming with it's own set of trophies , even an additional Platinum
  • Controlling superbikes introduces a new type of handling and gameplay
  • Bikes has it's separate online section where you can compete with others for countless hours

Bad

  • There could be more bikes than a dozen
  • There are no new tracks.
  • No option to have races where cars and bikes compete against eachother.

As far as I can remember, I've been surrounded by technology. My father bought us a Commodore 64 so I started playing games as a baby, following my passion with Amiga 500, then PC and so on. I love game related collectibles, and when I'm not collecting I review games, watch movies and TV Shows or you may catch me keeping a low profile at Game Events.
