DRIV3R stays true to its roots, incorporating the cinematic gameplay and gritty street crime of its predecessors with ground breaking graphics and three mammoth wide open city environments. Featuring Hollywood-level production values and a gripping, narrative story line, DRIV3R casts players once again as Tanner, a jaw breaking, no-holds-barred undercover cop and master "Wheelman" who does whatever it takes to bring the bad guys down. Tanner, alongside his longtime partner, Tobias, must infiltrate a global car theft ring in tire squealing chases and fierce on-foot firefights while tailing gangsters, chasing witnesses, stealing cars and unloading massive clips of ammo to bring the criminals to justice.

  1. The bitter taste I had since the beginning of the game is still there.
  2. It’s not that it’s that bad of a game, it’s just that most of what’s under the hood on this one has been done before.

    Almost all of the much-touted style evaporates as soon as the introductory movie is over and we're met with stiff animation, blurry textures, popping geometry, a dated engine, underwhelming vehicle sound, a stale world, kryptonite light poles, bouncing parked cars, forgettable on-foot action and only passable vehicular dynamics.
  4. The cities are huge and beautiful, with country-appropriate cars, and while the gameplay is muddy, it’s easy to see how it could have been better. But as it is, DRIV3Ris all flash and little substance.
  5. Just about as broken as it was on the Xbox and PlayStation 2 last year, and thanks to the ill-conceived introduction of a mouse and keyboard into the mix, it manages to be even worse, overall.
  6. You might be more interested to know what Driv3r isn’t though – a good game.

    A huge, horrible, gut-wrenching car crash, with blood-soaked teddy bears. [June 2005, p.100]

    This has to be one of the worst games ever made, the words cannot describe how bad the game is.
    The driving in the game is acceptable,
    This has to be one of the worst games ever made, the words cannot describe how bad the game is.
    The driving in the game is acceptable, slightly arcade-y (if that is the word) but its fine , its the city that is your biggest enemy i when i say city i mean lampposts and trees, they are designed to make your life miserable and every mission is either you chasing someone or someone is chasing you, and every time you accidentally hit a lamppost (and believe you me, you will ) its basically game over and you have to restart the mission, the only good thing about the game is that the protagonist is voiced by Michael Madsen (the dude who voiced daud from dishonored) so the story is meh the game designed is horrible and the lamppost are the responsible for basically everything.
    i revisited the game for nostalgia and it backfired........big time.
    this game is the digital embodiment of evil
