    Driver: Renegade 3D's solid driving mechanics are squandered on overwhelming repetition and poor production values.

    Driver Renegade 3D has sparks of greatness in its Career mode, but the main Story mode is a disappointing experience.

    Driver Renegade 3D sports quick, immediate and amusing gameplay, but no content beside a brief Story Mode and a monotonous Career Mode. With no multiplayer to be seen, this is a missed opportunity and a game not to buy, at full price at least.

    A short and somewhat limited game, that doesn't include a multiplayer mode which would fit very well, but also a very entertainment experience that will please those looking for an arcade driving game.

    Unfortunately, Driver Renegade is yet another disappointing entry in a series full of them. [Sept 2011, p.73]

    Renegade 3D driver is not a bad game. Simply it is a title that has several flaws, worsened by the absolute insipid gameplay.

    All in all I have to say arcade-racing fans should take a look at Driver: Renegade 3D. The game is funny, challenging and a real arcade-racing game with a lot of content and pretty cool comic style scenes.

    Driver: Renegade 3D is a game with two faces. The first one is pretty sad, with a short and boring Story Mode, a bad AI and the lack of any kind of multiplayer mode. The second one grants a very good Career Mode, with funny races and a solid structure.

    An average title overall. Qualities such as smooth driving controls and an impressive open setting are let down by inconsistent levels of challenge, a city lacking in population, repetitive gameplay and, unfortunately, an irritating and clich├ęd main character.

    Good graphics, solid controls and a large open world city - the only thing missing is a challenge that lasts more than a couple of hours.
  11. A game that has clearly had a lot of time put into it. The handling, the graphics and the general feel of the game are fine. Problem is, the actual game content feels like an afterthought, as if the development studio suddenly thought, "Oooh, we haven't actually got anything for the player to do. Quick, stick a short story in there, put loads of swearing in it and pad it with street races."

    Not just the giant cheapo pile of rubbish we expected - just a tiny, feeble, overpriced piece of crap. A genuinely awful addition to the 3DS library. [Oct 2011, p.58]

    While I do feel this game would merit a score of about 7/8 I'm giving it a 10 to outweigh the 0 that some idiot has given this game because they gave it to their kids without seeing that there is an M for Mature rating on the box, myself and the missus were laughing after reading their review while we were playing it, especially at the 3rd mission which during the cut scene there are images of fully nude women while someone is telling you you're going to need to go and smash some guys F*king face in to make an example of him. Was just picturing that person who gave the game a 0 walking past their kid hearing that cut scene as the kid cried their eyes out at the 3ds. good job!

    Apart from that tho, this is a solid enough game, its short and it is indeed ubisoft quickly getting some games out at launch but for what it is as a driving game it shows hope of what the system is capable of while you bomb around the city at really nice speeds with car models which are on par with the GTA games from the ps2 also if you want a cool enough proper gritty story on your 3ds this one will fill that gap in your game shelf with lovely amounts of swearing, nude pics and the odd imagery of a guy in the background with his brains showing on the bonnet of his car after you ram him into a wall. :D definitely not Mario Kart!

    lol at the idiot who gave this to her 10 year old stepson! Hey idiot, its rated M for Mature for a reason!

    Yeah its not a very good game, its
    the usual quick Ubisoft cash in. They have some talented devs over there but most of the time for consoles like the 3DS they just fart out mediocrity. Full Review »
