  • 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.

    Эх, вернуться бы в то славное время, которого нет, однако есть классная игра конца 90-х под названием Водитель, к сожалению, поклонниковЭх, вернуться бы в то славное время, которого нет, однако есть классная игра конца 90-х под названием Водитель, к сожалению, поклонников довольно таки немного, но есть те, кто чтит память данной игры и по сей день, ведь, предствить, что эта первая игра по сути, в которой можно рулить в свободном мире вызывало лишь бурю отличных эмоций, да и в игре был сюжет, который здоровска вписывается в антураж игры, прекрасные диалоги, от которых я до сей пор обалдеваю, даже, представить не возможно то, как создтели обошлись с продолжением, которое было, наверно, и неплохое, но и не особо, чтобы кайфовое.

    One of 2 games to "survive" my transition to PS2. Great fun, and still is.

It makes you feel like you're Steve This game is every guy's wish: drive a fast car crazy - and top speed - in a crowded city. It makes you feel like you're Steve McQueen in 'Bullitt'! Although the missions become a little monotonous, the driving game (specifically the car chase) is outrageously fun and addictive. My only gripe: not enough cities. Although the sequel gives you different city choices, it does not compare to the ease and excitement of this first installment. Expand
