  1. Without a decent framerate, the control suffers, and without decent control, the game becomes a LOT less fun. As it stands, this game feels more like a beta than a final, and fans of the original should just go play the first one again.
  2. From the grindingly slow frame rate to the in-your-face pop-up to the time you spend racing through empty streets, the game misses on every count that matters. Don't even bother renting it.

    One of the best games on the Play Station!

    I thought this game was excellent. I haven't played the original, although I am going to buy it now. One of the few games that I would say has 'charm'. Recommended for those who want a fun urban driving game. Full Review »

    Critics are just complaining about the ugly graphics and the terrible framerate and then give it like 5/10 over it, I don't care about the famerate, thing is the Ps2 came around the time when this was launched I don't understand why they didn't put it on Ps2, the graphics and mechanics would've been better and no horrible framerate but I don't want it on Ps2 because I rather the graphics stay the same as the original Driver. This is one of the very good games I grew up with. The soundtrack is really good, you can exit your vehicle and highjack others but what really annoys me is that you get cops after you for getting a police vehicle and that there's no option to even turn of cops and they should've put more people driving across the streets. I used to have lots of fun with this game, vehicles are great, the places Chicago, Havana, Las Vegas and Rio I play on are good and the story is good. Maybe in terms of graphics, physics and bugs the original Driver is better, but in gameplay, missions and having fun around the city, Driver 2 is better and overall better than its predecessor.
