Driven to despair,
By A Customer
This review is from: DRIV3R (Xbox) (Video Game)
Having recently completed GTA VC, I was hooked on quality driving games where you could get in and out of the cars, shoot things, and generally explore the entire city. When I read the previews of DRIV3R I thought I'd be getting much the same, just a grittier version.
How wrong could I have been. Yes, the cinematics of the game are beautiful, but the gameplay, to put it bluntly, is rubbish.
You can only choose from two different view angles. If the guy you're giving chase to gets more than half a block away from you it's game over. And as for the out of the car action...well, let's just say it's not the best - and that's being polite.
If anyone's thinking of buying this I'd say rent it first. Alternatively hang on until the next GTA game comes out.
