  • Summary: In Driver, you are the wheelman in a series of Hollywood-style car-chases. A great getaway driver is only as good as his equipment, which is why Driver has a selection of performance-packed muscle cars, complete with realistic handling, damage modeling, and real-world physics reactions.In Driver, you are the wheelman in a series of Hollywood-style car-chases. A great getaway driver is only as good as his equipment, which is why Driver has a selection of performance-packed muscle cars, complete with realistic handling, damage modeling, and real-world physics reactions. Driver also comes fully equipped with a replay/director mode that gives you all the necessary tools to "film" their own car chase and multiple views that allow you to look around when you're driving. Put the pedal to the metal and be the best driver around. Expand

  1. Delivers in spades exactly what it sets out to do: It lets the gamer be the wheelman in a non-stop car-chase movie. This is everything a driving game should be. It is, for all intents and purposes, perfect.

    What a tour-de-force! The graphics are top notch, the driving itself is unparalleled and the Director tools are unique and friendly... It's pure driving poetry.
  3. Prepare to be dazzled, gob-smacked and taken for the wildest ride of your life. And that's guaranteed... a masterpiece. The best game we've played for ages and absolutely recommended.
  4. After playing "Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit" for months on end, I had developed an image in my mind of how video game policemen were supposed to act. Driver shattered that image.
  5. It's seriously fun, has tons of gaming options and is nice and lengthy with a healthy does of challenge attached to it. Major bang for your gaming dollar.
  6. Another thing that kinda irks me is the fact that the game pretty much flaunts a late 60's model Mustang muscle car as your main ride, but yet there is only like 1 mission that lets you drive it... its never the default car in any level.
  7. By far the worst thing about Driver is its inability to really draw me into its universe.

    A minha nota sempre vai ser maior do que 5 por garantir nostalgia, e não é todo jogo que me traz essa sensação, o jogo ainda tem um desempenhoA minha nota sempre vai ser maior do que 5 por garantir nostalgia, e não é todo jogo que me traz essa sensação, o jogo ainda tem um desempenho e gráfico levemente superior ao seu sucessor, por motivos óbvios, e essa limitação no Driver é algo único, tu sente como realmente estivesse em um filme, lembra muito o carro desgovernado.
