    An amount of bugs, glitches, and problems. Not only that, but not more than a few hours into playing Driver 2, players will find out how sloppy really is.
  2. 70
    Collisions are far too bouncy-what should be minor dust-ups send your car cartwheeling through the air, and many of the timed missions have far too little breathing room.
  3. How could Reflections screw this up so bad? Driver 2 is a pale reflection (har har) of the original.
  4. Spank!
    70
    Without the thrills you got when you started playing the first game, a lot of the impact is lost - so in some ways, this isn't as good as the original.
  5. Antagonist

    Everything that was promised to add to the package has been, but all the problems that plagued the first are magnified twice over. Regrettably, it's almost all in the visual and audio categories.

    Driver 2 is fun...but it's not as good as the original....I prefer the maps this time around but the overall gameplay is not as good as DriverDriver 2 is fun...but it's not as good as the original....I prefer the maps this time around but the overall gameplay is not as good as Driver 1. Graphics have received a downgrade but the FMVs have improved. Getting out of your car feels more like a gimmick more than a gameplay mechanic. Music isn't as good, but the cars are more varied this time and you can go to cities outside of the USA! So while Driver 2 doesn't have the charm of Driver 1, It definitely has the heart.

    One of the worst games I've played on PlayStation. Visuals and sounds are decent but everything else from story to incredibly bad steering,One of the worst games I've played on PlayStation. Visuals and sounds are decent but everything else from story to incredibly bad steering, reversing and AI make the game real pain. The best thing is the rewarding feeling you get after dozens of failures in story missions. The second best things are driving games such survival which is really fun to play but that isn't enough.
