Like its predecessor, Driver 2 is an adrenalin-fueled, high-speed car chase through the streets of four cities, where you, as Tanner, infiltrate the criminal underworld, using your driving skills as well as your cunning to disrupt their plans. All the true-to-life features of Driver; such as realistic car handling, complete with damage modeling and true, real-world physics reactions on all cars; extensive production, giving the cities an amazing realism, featuring recognizable landmarks; new features such as foot missions, dual player, and the enhanced cut scenes make this game a real adrenalin rush.

  1. Nearly as enjoyable as the original. Despite all the frustration, I kept returning for more of the Wheelman's exciting life. Tanner is certainly "da man"!
  2. Everyone who liked the first game is going to love Driver 2- - the new types of missions, cities, and gameplay features, as well as a fantastic, original story, make Driver 2 a winner.
  3. It's a keep ya playing kinda game.

    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.
  5. Spank!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    This game is off the chain and its worth a ten because it keeps you on the edge of your seat everytime you play it.

Maybe not as evil as GTA, but certainly up with the daddy. Collapse

    The missions are very exciting and challenging. Good choice of cars and other modes of transport. I like the cities that you can go in. The missions are very exciting and challenging.

    I am writing this at the time that driver 3 has hit the shops and proved to be a bigger hit although the series is big anyway ! The first I am writing this at the time that driver 3 has hit the shops and proved to be a bigger hit although the series is big anyway ! The first game was great dispite now you know that the game has got better with the tech. we have in gamming . Driver2 has the adventage of getting out the car and walking around with a very skinny tanner which would like like he would not say boo to a goose ( its a old saying ) now he has made a come back three years after the 2nd game and we are glad to wait for this game as so far i carn't fault it ..even the loading is short and you are met by great graphics in the menu and in the game and we are getting such a great game each time the new one comes out . We have altryed to drive a bus or a car in the correct way but we al have had that rush to just hit the x button or A i think for x-box even space bar for the pc game and just drive !!! - so be good be bad be tanner .

The only thing I had fun doing was gate racing, and even that didn't last me long until I got bored. The one redeeming quality of this game are the graphics and the fact that this open-world game is even on the PS1. Although there is some slowdown, it shouldn't take away from the action. This game hasn't aged well at all, however and it is not a good game anymore. Expand
