  1. Packed with fun car chases but let down by an uncomfortable control system.

    It's a pity, as aside from the curious controls and erratic difficulty curve, there's much to like here.

    The choice to start from scratch was a winning one. The wii version of Tanner's adventures isn't a mere porting, but an entirely new experience. A shame though for the overall unpolished gameplay.

    Bizarre controls aside, this is an unusually thoughtful port that at least attempts to do something different. [Oct 2011, p.63]

    The Wii version of Driver: San Francisco has nothing in common with the excellent game developed by Ubisoft Reflections on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. This is rather a classic episode of the series, with the same old gameplay, cumbersome controls (and you can't customize them in any way) and mediocre graphics.

    Driver: San Francisco fails in every aspects. Bad graphics and a terrible lack of variety sink its gameplay, making of it a title that can't be recommended.

    At the end of the day, there just isn't anything special about this release. [Sept 2011, p.74]

    For all those haters:
    You can play this in every HD seventh-generation video-game console and on the Wii. It's obvious that this game wouldn't have the graphics of the PS3/X360 version, but that's a current problem, the most of the consumers wants 4K resolution with a powerful multiplayer, that's all they want, they don't think about anything else, That's not OK.
