    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.

    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.
  3. 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."

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

    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.

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

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

    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!

    In my point of view, is the best game for Mature 3DS players. Because have the feeling of a racing game and the emotion of destruct the criminals. Ubsoft does its better. Expand

    It`s a 6, but I`ll give it a 7 for the sake of the person who can`t read ratings(To bump up the score a bit).
    The game looks good for a 3DS
    game, its controls are as they say "tight", and in general it`s a good game.
    Don`t get me wrong, it`s nothing special, but for the price I got for it, it`s worth every penny.

    The controls are alright, the gameplay is alright, the story is bad, the soundtrack is goodish, and there seems to be a good amount of content here. Nothing special though, so If you do get it, don`t get your hopes up.
    The only way to really describe this game is alright, and I don`t really recommend it. Unless you can get it for REALY cheap.

    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. Expand

    48 out of 100? Too high... The game looks like a DS game, for the love of God! This game is an insult to Driver series. If you go back to the ol' Driver games... This is WORSE than what they did to Final Fantasy (no, IT'S NOT TOO MUCH!). Rated M for mature when the gameplay is for 3 years old. 0 realism, bad gameplay, not many modes and story is so bad... 2 of this 3 goes for the soundtrack. The other one, for the little fun I had for 1 hour before finishing it, as it's freaking short too. Too bad Ubisoft. I thought you could have a redemption of what you did at NDS, but no, you're still making crap. COP was your only good game for DS, don't do the same for 3DS. If you get this game (don't buy it, if they give it to you as a present or whatever), burn it. Expand

    After purchasing this game and my 10 year old stepson played it there is a lot of very graphic language in this game and parents should be cautioned about the language it is definitley not a game for young people Expand
