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. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

    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 theCritics 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.
