Great Games and Accessories for the Nintendo Wii from Gamesbuyer.
New York in '78 was the coolest place on the planet. I was new to the Big Apple, just a country boy looking to make it good. In just a few weeks it felt like home. From New Jersey to Queens, from the Bronx down to Battery this was my patch, my backyard. 28 years later and the city sparkled like new but underneath, the filth was still there, and I had vengeance crawling inside me.

The most dissapointing thing about this game i felt was the graphics, they feel so square and linear, they really do not push the wii's graphics whatsoever, admittedly the wii doesn't have amazing graphic capabilities but it is way more capable of what this game offers.
Another disappointment was the out of car features, which i felt were so simple and more of a step down from driver 3 then anything.
The driving controls are flimsy as anything, you basically use just the nunchuck to drive but you have to hold it really flat and steady, because if you stil it in either direction your car will do a 180 degree spin in that direction, also if you lift the nunchuck up you activate the handbrake, almost like real life which is pretty annoying.
Most of all i felt this game was way too easy, doesn't last very long at all in my opinion
Despite all that this game has some really good features. It has a nice little mode where you can take any car or bike from the street and tune it up and accessorize it at numerous garages across the city, there are some pretty good looking cars about too, especially the racing ones. You can even slap on some NOS on a school bus or a digger and watch it fly! Not too mention some custom body/paint jobs on offer.
The maps are pretty sufficiently sized, thats one thing the driver series has maintained throughout and is probably what its best known for.
The storyline is not so bad, it's set in the 70's and has some stereotypical characters about, pretty much the cast from starksy and hutch. Not sure why it's been giving an 18 rating tho?Read more ›
Although the game starts in the 70s, most of it is played in the present day, which is not cool in the slightest. The soundtrack is alright, but not as interesting as the last game. The cut scenes look very good, but the plot is terrible. The graphics are no better than in the last game, although sparks flying from hanging bodywork are a nice touch.
Gameplay hasn't moved on at all. The on foot controls are now very basic. The character cannot jump, climb or swim, when he could in Driv3r. They can be very frustrating when you want to get things done quickly, like when you're playing against the clock or are in a firefight. Getting into vehicles is especially annoying. The driving is much the same as it's always been, I found it frustrating that the throttle is just an on off switch, making progress jerky if you're not going flat out.
There is now a garage feature, enabling you to store one of each type of car in the game and improve them. This is quite interesting at first but soon becomes tedious, with the same options available for every car. There are also a number of side games, but none are especially interesting.
The police are rubbish. I like the way you can escape if you change cars when no one is looking, but apart from that the system is terrible. The AI is awful, all you have to do is drive down an alley and they suddenly can't find you.
The Wii specific controls seem to be an afterthought. Driving controls are poor and the on foot shooting looking controls don't really work.Read more ›
But this is the best driver game so far

As big time fan of the series, I wanted this on my Wii as well. Loved every bit of it.Published on 28 Jun. 2014 by Helena Nijns
The only downside is that some of the graphics aren't as good as the newer stuff and the controls take a bit of getting used to, but it's a brilliant continuation of the driver... Read morePublished on 18 Nov. 2013 by Gurrr
Controls are difficult to master. All of the missions are very similar and graphics aren't great but good fun all the same.Published on 29 Oct. 2013 by ?
