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

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)...

Oh My! Does this take me back to the day or what??? I remember waiting for this with great anticipation as if it were yesterday. Hard to believe that I first received (and then played) this at Christmas 2000. Now, beat-near eleven and a half years later, here I sit and (Finally!) construct a review for the game.

For me, the first thing to note with this is the difference from the first game. Personally, I think Driver 2 is a huge improvement from its' Driver counterpart. The cities (Chicago, Havana, Las Vegas and Rio) are bigger, there's a better variety of cars (back to that in a moment) and the overall AI is better, when compared to Driver. The cops are smarter and so is the traffic; another reviewer has already raised this point, and it is true. Finally, when you play the 'Undercover' (Story) mode, just LOOK at the difference between Driver 2's cutscenes, as opposed to the cutscenes of the original. It is no question that Driver 2 had a better budget than the original, and it shows, especially when you view 2's cutscenes (same reviewer also commented on this, again, it is true). My point here is, to conclude, that Driver 2 plays like a classic 1970s Hollywood Car Chase movie, and that aspect to the game's story is worth your money alone, I feel.

Another impressive feature with this release is the ability to 'get out of the car'; I recall being utterly enthralled by this prospect!! Unlike the original, if you totally 'destroy' your vehicle, the game is not over. You can simply get out of your car and hijack another one, so no more frustrations there. It also means a better variety of cars for you to enjoy and take advantage of and, believe me, there's a load of new cars (and a great variety of them) to master.

Ordered this game as an old favourite and our discs were to damaged to play it. We're half way through the story and so far no problems, it's the same old Driver 2 that we remember. My only issue is the description said the discs were in 'pristine condition' and they are not (not that I expected them to be) the scratches do not interfere with game play but they are there. However its an old game and so plays how an old game does. Good purchase, would consider buying from them again

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.
