New Driver vs Midnight Club LA vs Burnout Paradise vs Test Drive Unlimited 2, GTA4...
So what will make any of these open city racers/driving games more fun than the other?
This is just speculation, as not every game has been confirmed or released yet:
-Size of city/terrain (TDU2 has the likely lead)
-Amount of Vehicles (?)
-Licensed Vehicles (MCLA and TDU2 licensed)
-Sportbikes AND vehicles (Driver, TDU2, MCLA)
-On Foot (Driver)
-Day/night cycle (Driver, MCLA)
-Customization of vehicles (MCLA leads IMO)
-Fastest speed (MCLA)
-Best crashes (Burnout Paradise)
-Best Races/Chases (?)
-Interior Dash View (TDU2, MCLA)
-Most gameplay options (TDU2, MCLA)
-Best Controls (?)
-Most realistic driving physics (Driver)
-Best locations, terrain variety (?)
-Offroad Access (TDU2, Driver, MCLA?)
I'll be buying every game but Burnout Paradise, since it lacks sportbikes, my favorite transportation next to sportcars.
