Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

The original Driver was one of the most popular and original driving games on the PSone and very much helped to pave the way for Grand Theft Auto III and others. The sequel, however, was a massive disappointment and seemed to prove that the Driver formula could only ever work again on the next generation of consoles.

Now finally Driver 3 (or DRIV3R as it insists on calling itself) is here, and although it's not the disaster that the last game was it's still a considerable disappointment. As you would expect from developers Reflections, who also did Stuntman and the original Destruction Derby, the car handling and physics are excellent--perhaps some of the best ever seen. However, the artificial intelligence of your opponent drivers is almost laughably poor and the incredibly detailed graphics, which look so good in the screenshots, come at the expensive of some disappointingly short draw distances, with buildings and backgrounds suddenly popping up as if out of nowhere.

The game itself is now very much influenced by Grand Theft Auto and you can get out of your car and hijack other vehicles. DRIV3R is still predominantly mission-based, though, and unfortunately the difficulty curve is still as frustratingly uneven as ever with some missions seemingly almost superhumanly hard.

If you're a fan of the series then DRIV3R probably won't disappoint too much, but newcomers to the series may find this has rather more problems than you'd expect from such a heavily hyped title.--David Jenkins

Manufacturer's Description

DRIV3R is an action-packed driving adventure game that 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: Miami, Nice, and Istanbul.Featuring Hollywood-caliber production values--with voice actors including Michael Madsen, Ving Rhames, Mickey Rourke and Michelle Rodriguez--and a gripping, narrative story line, DRIV3R casts players once again as undercover cop Tanner who, alongside his partner Tobias, must infiltrate a global car theft ring, an assignment that leads to 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just take it how it is 24 April 2007
By Paul
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
There are a lot of negative reviews for this game out there, which really surprised me after I bought the game and found that it aint actually all that bad. With the massive improvements from the original driver games I was expecting a completely different style of game, but a lot of the old features still remain the same. The game feels exactly like the old driver games, the cars drive the same, the game flows like the first two and a lot of the missions are very similar. The only problem with this however is that a lot of bugs still exist in the game, making it rather annoying at times. One example is that occasionally when you try to get off a speed boat, you can just fall dead on the floor for no apparent reason, which can be really annoying when you're halfway through a level!

However the graphics on this game are excellent for any PS2 game, especially during the FMV sequences. There are three new maps which include Nice, Maimi and Istanbul which are incredibly detailed even in the backdrops and are apparently accuarate representations of the real cities. The extra features in the game are the ability to drive whatever you like which opens up a whole new range of missions, most of which are interesting and fit in well with the story line, as well as make things a lot more interesting.

The mistake many people are making is comparing this game to grand theft auto. Of course the game is very similar in a lot of ways, but it obviously isnt grand theft auto. Its clear to see that there isnt quite as many things to do on driver in comparrison, but thats why you have to just take it as it is.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average 17 Aug 2004
This game is no where near as bad as people are making it out to be, infact it is a very playable game at times, with many flaw, but also many good points about it.
Yes it's true that reflections havent fixed the problems with the old game, pedestrians walking through walls, the "road caving" problem (where the road caves in and you suddenly fall from the sky), and a few others but they have made them less consistent.
Also when i found out that Driver 3 would have guns i was delighted, but i automatically assumed that there would be an auto aiming system (there actually is on the game, but it is usually switched off and doesn't make a blind bit of difference) so as you can imagine doing missions that need quick spanny shooting is nearly impossible.
But there are some good points as well, the cars look, handle and sound beautiful, the driving part of the game is at it's usual high standard and its one of the only things that reflections have improved. The police chases are intense and so are the driving missions.
Of course there lots of things to do in free ride as well, you can just ride around the city exploring, like in the old games, you can have a gun battle with police, but there are extra things to do, there are 3 secret cars on each level, the addition of boat to the series means you can set sail onto the waters of miami, nice and istanbul, but the most entertaining thingt is looking for the 10 timmy vermicelli's (sound familiar) on each level, they hide in area's around the city (and are heavly armed) and the most amusing thing is the desingers put armbands on his arms (laughing at the fact that you can't swim on grand theft auto and you can on driver)
Only buy this game if you have played it and you are sure you'll like it if not then its a rather big gamble

5.0 out of 5 stars driv3r is Great!!! 31 July 2004
I just bought the game a couple of days ago and i have to say i am glad i bought it.One thing i realy enjoy is the thrill mode.I have been reading alot of reviews for driv3r and they have said it is a major dissapointment but i have 2 disagree. This is the 1st driver game i have bought of the series because i like many other people am a grand theft auto man. One good thing about this game is when there is a crash there are police cars racing to the scene this never happened on any of the grand theft auto games. To be honest this game is better than vice city but san andreas is out soon and i have pre ordered my copy lookin at the screenshots it looks great and i think it will be better than driv3r and maybe the best game of all time. Driv3r is the best game i own now and in my opinion the best game around.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's Not Bad 7 July 2004
I must say that the graphics are quite good, the cards a quite realistic, and there is a good in depth story line.
But what really anoys me is that for example when you are in an articulated truck and you are going at full speed then you hit a small lamp post you litrelly go flying meters into the air wich I find very unrealistic. it is also a bit tricky to actuly aim acuratly but if you liked GTA Vice City then you will proboubly like this. Exept it may take a bit of time to get used to.
