Product Description

Product Description

Violence threatens to ignite America when a US crimelord's money-man cuts a deal with his greatest rival, a Brazilian gangster. Tanner teams up with Tobias Jones and they head out, undercover, to try and keep them apart. What does the money-man know? Where's he hiding? Who's Rosanna Soto? What else is between the crimelord and the gangster? How long has Tanner got to find out?

With four new cities, including Chicago, Havana, Las Vegas and Rio de Janeiro, curved roads and flyovers, 30 cars to drive and five two-player driving games Driver 2 will have you struggling to work your way through the 40 undercover missions.

Amazon.co.uk Review

Fine-tuning the white-knuckled "car chase" formula of its predecessor, Driver 2 features more of the same high-speed, inner-city vehicular mayhem, casting players once again as Tanner, a hard-boiled undercover cop who is posing as a bad-ass getaway driver, this time to stop an international mob war.

With computer-animated cinematic sequences doing the lion's share of the storytelling, players must guide Tanner through more than 40 action-packed missions in four different city settings, this time on foot--which primarily allows Tanner to carjack other vehicles--as well as behind the wheel.

While it can be of a lot of fun to play, Driver 2 is no joyride. The missions can be quite unforgiving, requiring many restarts to complete, and the cops are quite determined even at the "Easy" setting. Also, the game's coarse, choppy 3-D graphics often get in the way of things, with slowdowns disrupting the game's pace, and buildings and such popping up out of nowhere. --Joe Hon

4.0 out of 5 stars Nobody's perfect 16 Jan 2001
By D Smith
Format:Video Game
Long-awaited doesn't begin to describe the follow up to the classic Driver. It's certainly been improved in a few significant areas - the cities are bigger and more varied, there are more cars to drive and the in-game menu doesn't take you back to the title screen every 2 minutes. There are some new spins on old missions and entirely new ideas, chasing an ambulance with police tailing you is much harder than it sounds. Add to that more intelligent traffic which doesn't stop dead after an accident (and smarter cops), bigger and better cities and great graphics and you should be onto a winner.
There are some major "buts". On a PSone the game slows down too often, plus there are major flaws in the graphics (in Havana, trucks often appear literally from nowhere). There's also nothing quite as hard as "The President's Run", the finale from the original Driver's Undercover game, and can we please have the speedometer back? Let's not forget too that it's almost turned into Grand Theft Auto in 3D, not an original concept.
Overall though, it's more of the same, only better. If you liked the original, you'll probably be turned on a treat by this. Here's looking forward to Driver 3 (out 2002 according to the end-game credits)...

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect 27 Nov 2000
Format:Video Game
Driver 2 is a great improvement over the first Driver, the cities are bigger, there is wider variety of vehicles to choose from, the graphics have improved and the design of the cities is of higher standard. The addition of the 2 player game is also very welcome, as it adds longevity to the game and guarantees hours of real fun with your friends. On the downside, the game can majorly slow down when the screen gets too busy and it feels a lot of the time like you are playing in slow motion. Fortunately this seems to happen mainly during the missions. But apart from this and the boring 70s music there isn't much else one can complain about. Buy it, it's worth every penny!

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars, the best days of playstation 11 Aug 2014
By Mal
Format:Video Game
Best ps1 game ever. The game story starts off pretty slow and admittedly upon first impression the graphics and initial slowdown in gameplay make this game feel outdated and broken, however give driver 2 some time and you will discover the amount of depth and creativity which has gone into this title.
Chicago, the first city is probably one of the main reasons for this title attracting firsthand negativity from review critics and players, the city is bustling with many moving vehicles which is the main reason for slowdown present very early in the game, also Chicago itself is not the best of cities on the game in fact it was my least favourite however the missions are quite fun in story mode. The game really opens up at the end of Chicago and onto the next city, the environments have more character and interesting things to see rather than the dull grey city streets of Chicago, the car choice is better and driving much smoother thanks to less traffic.
What I like about this game is the emphasis on driving missions and exploration, this is not GTA, there is no mindless killing involved in this game , instead the game focuses on gripping and engaging driving and simple but challenging tasks. The game difficulty is pretty tough compared to modern games, there will be many times where players will restart due to the smallest of errors or simply not be driving good enough, but there is always a feeling of accomplishment and the want to complete the mission and progress.

5.0 out of 5 stars Am I in love? 26 Nov 2000
Format:Video Game
I still remember that appy day last September when I walked home from Electronics Botique feeling all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I owned Driver. I played it for months with complete pleasure. When I first heard about Driver 2 I started to physically shake with excitement and the game hasn't let me down in the slightest. If you were to walk into a room mid-game you probably couldn't tell the difference betwen this and the original but belowthe surface it is so much more. The addition of multiplayer games makes up for those frustrating moments when you wished to show off your driving skills in a competive fashion. Though graphically equal the sequal has gained so much in the way of game playability. The ability to get out of your car and steal new ones makes the 'Take a Ride' option far more satisfying and makes some very good levels in 'undercover' mode. The Undercover game (that is, the main part of the game) has been improved greatly. The missions are fun and original throughout, with the addition of 'tailing' missions making a slightly more reserved alternitive to the killcrazy ramming missions. The difficulty level is more steadily increasing, aposed to the relitively easy missions culminating in the virtually impossible President's Run in the original. The settings are more dramatic, with amazing scenery complimented by a suitibly dark plot. Despite this Driver 2 keeps a ceerier disposition than the last Driver. It still has the same minor problems that have been highlighted from the original (misplaced poligons, bits of the sky occasionaly appearing on the ground) but these are relitively infrequent and detract nothing from the game. The only small quibble I have is the more pronounced slow down and occasional freezing but I would still say that this is a msut own for anyone who has a PS. I, like others am looking to the future, and Driver 3 on the PS2. Hail Driver!!!!
