    At the end of the day Driver on the WIi is fun. The graphics may be lacking slightly and certain aspects of the gamplay are a bit irritating, but generally this game is great to play. It provides a GTA style experience along with Wii controls which does lead to a winning combination. Certainly worth checking out.

    This is a pretty solid and addictive game, and unlike wot many people believe, it isn't trying to be gta, because this is driver, so the cars and motorbikes are better and far more realistic.

    It's just plain unfair for every game in an open-world setting to be rated in comparrison to GTA. No, DPL doesn't have the story/complexety/characters or whatever of GTA:SA. But it does have cool cars, great music and a city that gives a good feeling of NYC- both in the funky late seventies as well as in the moloch of modern days, As well as controls even a sixaxis on PS3 It's just plain unfair for every game in an open-world setting to be rated in comparrison to GTA.

And what's most important: DPL is on the Wii, GTA is not. Period. Expand

    Suprisingly good, very good imitation of Grand Theft auto. Graphics are not that good, but gameplay is good especially with wiimote aiming - although has some quirks and bugs.

    Brilliant controls. Decent graphics. Fun gameplay. GTA clone. Blow stuff up and kill people. Great physics too!

    If you want a GTA style game this is it. It has what GTA has but does it better. Motion controls aren't tacked on, shooting with remote is good, hand brakes with the nuncuck is also good. overall a good game.

    I bought the game expecting some disappointments but honestly this is a pretty good game, the controls take a bit to get use too, since you can't really move the nunchuck. But over-all I enjoy and would recommend it.

    Driver attempts to join the ranks of more successful Wii-makes such as Godfather and Scarface, but will find itself at the bottom of the open-world barrel on Nintendo’s console, as the game lacks depth, fine-tuned control, and the right mix of motion/IR control.
  2. It's alright, but not good enough for us to forgive yet another port. [Aug 2007, p.76]

    There are some things the game does right -- the drive-by shooting is pretty sweet -- but problems with the controls for the driving -- essentially the guts of the game -- more than suck any sort of fun out of the thing.
