DRIV3R stays true to its roots, incorporating the cinematic gameplay and gritty street crime of its predecessors with ground breaking graphics and three mammoth wide open city environments. Featuring Hollywood-level production values and a gripping, narrative story line, DRIV3R casts players once again as Tanner, a jaw breaking, no-holds-barred undercover cop and master "Wheelman" who does whatever it takes to bring the bad guys down. Tanner, alongside his longtime partner, Tobias, must infiltrate a global car theft ring in tire squealing chases and fierce on-foot firefights while tailing gangsters, chasing witnesses, stealing cars and unloading massive clips of ammo to bring the criminals to justice.

  1. The bitter taste I had since the beginning of the game is still there.
  2. It’s not that it’s that bad of a game, it’s just that most of what’s under the hood on this one has been done before.

    Almost all of the much-touted style evaporates as soon as the introductory movie is over and we're met with stiff animation, blurry textures, popping geometry, a dated engine, underwhelming vehicle sound, a stale world, kryptonite light poles, bouncing parked cars, forgettable on-foot action and only passable vehicular dynamics.
  4. The cities are huge and beautiful, with country-appropriate cars, and while the gameplay is muddy, it’s easy to see how it could have been better. But as it is, DRIV3Ris all flash and little substance.
  5. Just about as broken as it was on the Xbox and PlayStation 2 last year, and thanks to the ill-conceived introduction of a mouse and keyboard into the mix, it manages to be even worse, overall.
  6. You might be more interested to know what Driv3r isn’t though – a good game.

    A huge, horrible, gut-wrenching car crash, with blood-soaked teddy bears. [June 2005, p.100]

    This is not GTA nor it should be. I hate open world and side missions. This game has none of that. This is a true loveletter to the first 2This is not GTA nor it should be. I hate open world and side missions. This game has none of that. This is a true loveletter to the first 2 games with the same beautiful physics and slightly better graphics. I can see how it looked dated in 2004, but today it's absolutely amazing. Sublimation of everything I love in gaming. 9/10. Next game in the series parallel lines lost all of the charm. Beaten this game in 2 days, no idea how I didn't give it a chance for all these years, probably partially because of this abysmal score on metacritic
    Only downside is those lamp poles could be less solid :)

    This isin't the best game, but it has something inside that keeps you playing this game until it's over. Game world are beautifull This isin't the best game, but it has something inside that keeps you playing this game until it's over. Game world are beautifull and venchicles are very great. The best two things are Cinematics and Soundtrack. I bought this game music CD and it was awesome. Play and simply enjoy it. This game isn't perfect but has a spirit. Expand

    Driver 3 en sí es un buen juego, pero que no logra demostrarlo. La historia es buena y convincente, pero su jugabilidad es mala. Primero antesDriver 3 en sí es un buen juego, pero que no logra demostrarlo. La historia es buena y convincente, pero su jugabilidad es mala. Primero antes que nada, hay que mencionar que los controles del juego son muy malos, difícil para acostumbrarse a jugarlo, aunque lo puedes configurar a tu gusto. Pero eso no cambia la situación, ya que los movimientos de la conducción de los vehículos son resbalosos o hasta duros. Otro tema también es sobre el tema de apuntado y disparo del personaje, realmente en si es algo decente, pero a la hora de poner si queremos la puntería automática, resulta que es realmente este sistema no funciona como debería ser. Un buen punto del juego es el apartado sonoro. En si no tiene canciones al estilo como es en la saga de GTA que tiene distintos sountracks de distintas bandas, pero la música de fondo que se utilizó para ambientar al juego está bastante buena, un buen punto rescatable. Realmente otro punto malo de este juego son sus gráfico. El año que salió el juego fue durante el 2005 y algunos juegos como Half-Life 2 o Doom 3 mostraron un motor gráfico más avanzado, mientras que juegos como Driver 3 se quedaron muy atrás. A simple vista parece un juego de PS1 un poco más mejorado. El juego también está lleno de bugs y otros errores de texturas que realmente se podrían haber arreglado. A todo esto, igual no se le puede negar que el juego es entretenido y disfrutable, siempre y cuando la jugabilidad no te juegue en contra, pero es por lejos el peor de la saga. Expand

    Unbelievably even worse than the console versions. Pathetic.
