    There’s a lot of game to explore in Driven if you’re dedicated; just be prepared for a steep learning curve.

    Not quite an ambitious failure, and not a qualified success either, the game pays the price for falling between the stools of arcade adventurousness and simulation seriousness.
  3. A racing game that is easy to control but extremely difficult.
  4. When it comes down to it all, the game plays true to the film. Boring, clichéd, sometimes grimace inducing and deeply, deeply average.
  5. The game is just too short with so-so graphics and questionable handling.
  6. Nintendo Power

    Driving is surprisingly manageable for an open-wheel racer, and that could get your engine running if you're a car buff or arcade racing fan. [May 2002, p.132]
  7. Driven is a solid, if not somewhat boring, racing game that fails to innovate or add any sense of entertainment not already found in previous racing games.
  8. Driven's acceleration feels sluggish as it tries to drag the combined weight of unresponsive AI, strange physics, overly unforgiving challenges and pedestrian multiplayer modes.
