This review is from: Driver San Francisco: PlayStation 3 Essentials (PS3) (Video Game)
My initial experiences of this game were so bad that it put me off playing any further. Upon starting it up, I was pestered for an online code; as I had no intention of playing anything other than the singleplayer, and my copy was second-hand in any case, I said I didn't have one. Then I said I didn't want to buy one. I got stuck in a loop for a while with it laboriously loading up some awful uPlay interface before it finally conceded to letting me reach the main menu. At this point it then requested my Facebook (which I don't even have) and Twitter credentials, presumably so it could automatically post updates that would interest literally no-one.
By then I was already pretty exasperated, and I'd not even been able to start the game. When I did so, throughout the intro and tutorial section the camera lingered lovingly on in-game advertising, often for longer than it did on the actual game events. I didn't get much further than that, because I was sick of having marketing shoved in my face rather than being able to focus on the game. Maybe it gets better later, but I don't really care -- when I've bought something, I don't expect the thing I've bought to immediately ask me to promote it, and then try and sell me other things.
