The cars, soundtrack, story, graphics, sound, This game has it all in heaps! It's great to play Driver again, ive spent hours speeding in all different cars and trucks around what feels like a huge map, and i havent even unlocked the rest of it yet. The cars are great and there's LOADS of em from 60's/70's muscle cars to modern SUV's. Each one handles differently and sounds just like the real thing. It was amazing to shift into a 74' Dodge Monaco and hear that engine roar - which was the car used as the 'Bluesmobile'. Aside from the story missions there's quite alot to do which earns money allowing you to buy cars and unlock more driving tasks in the game like the 1st Driver had. One of them is the car park challenge which you had to complete in the original Driver, abit difficult but it looks so good on the ps3. The free roam aspect is still awesome, getting away from the police can still be abit hard and the songs that play on the radio add to the experience, from The Black Keys to Dr. John and other nice blues and funk tunes.

If you played the original Driver for hours on the ps1, buy this game!

Having been epicly disappointed by Dirt 3, not interested in the painful realism of Gran Turismo and having played Motorstorm Apocalypse to death I was looking for a new driving game. Now, I will admit, I was not a big fan of the original Driver series. Every time one came out I gave it a go but found myself quickly aggravated by its difficulty and subsequently quite disappointed. So when Driver San Fran came out I though I'd give them one last chance... and I'm so glad I did.
Great soundtrack (though I do wish you could put your own tracks in). Unique plot that keeps what would potentially make a quickly becoming-stale-game fresh. And licensed cars! Its does get frustratingly difficult on occasions and Im only about 3/4 of the way through the story but there is a ton of stuff to keep you occupied if you get stuck. One awesome feature is the movie challenges. Collect icons from around the city to unlock the chance to live classic car chase movie scenes from films like Blues Brothers and of course Bullit.
Its also pretty surprising, you'll find cars and features you'd never have expected. Like off road racing a Lancia Stratos or jumping into a DeLoren then gunning it to 88 (yup, see what happens... ;) )
Great game and well worth picking up.

Think: The cars from Gran Turismo, graphics from Dirt and the open world of Test Drive.

Okay, first of all, the story is ridiculous. Your character, Tanner, is in a coma, and is dreaming about a version of San Francisco where he can 'shift' into the body of any driver. It's absolutely ludicrous, despite obviously taking inspiration from the likes of the TV series, 'Life on Mars' and the film trilogy 'The Matrix'.

If you're used to games like Burnout, Need for Speed, or even MotorStorm and Gran Turismo, you're in for a surprise, handling-wise. Cars don't corner easily unless you use the brakes - but if you use too much brake, you'll oversteer vastly. While a lot of people have claimed that this is due to "broken gameplay", it is actually a part of the series, and requires you to put that little bit more effort into learning the controls, mastering techniques. Eventually, after an hour or two, you find yourself gliding around corners sideways, with your back end sliding out perfectly.

The shift ability is truly game-changing. While the reason behind it might be ridiculous, it manages to achieve its goal of giving you absolute freedom, without taking the series away from its driving roots. At pretty much any moment, you can jump out of your car, hover above the city, find another car, and ZAP; you're driving that car instead. To begin with, it feels a bit gimmicky, but after a while, you start to realise how valuable a tool this is, and you are jumping in and out of shift like a pro. Rather than racing after your opponents and trying to take them down by ramming them from behind, you can shift into a car (or lorry!) heading in the opposite direction, and cause a head on collision with your enemy, before jumping back into your own car. The ability gives you as much freedom and intuitive gameplay as the grappling hook feature in Just Cause 2 did.

After playing the demos I thought this game could be good but maybe not as much fun as the original games. But after buying the game I now know it is just as good.

The game has lots of arcady bits in it like stunts, races etc. but the basic driving is exactly what test drive 2 should have been. The handling while not a simulation lets the player instantly start drifting and drive on the limit which in itself I can mess about with for hours.

There is a story as always and its easy to get into with classy music and movie style pieces throughout the game. The graphics are superb and absorb you in the game even further. While no GT5 this game provides a welcome break from a deep simulation and puts you in the center of a movie.

I haven't looked forward to a game as much as this one for years. I was one of the original kids that played the original Driver way back when and had been praying that this game would put the series back on track, and I feel that my prayers have been answered as Driver is certainly back.
It instantly feels like a 'Driver' game, the handling is there, the graphics are top notch, the music is retro, the original duo of Tanner and Jones are back along with a massive city to explore at your leisure using a selection of licensed cars.
The game itself is made up of a central story mode which sees our character Tanner put into a comer by another series favourite, Jericho. From this moment the game is played from Tanner's mind where you can physically shift into other vehicles to complete missions. On paper this idea sounds utter rubbish, but to be honest it ain't bad at all and is actually a brilliant feature, which gives Driver San Francisco a unique game play element.
Alongside the main story there are other side missions which include retro movie chases, checkpoint races, stunts and dares also cops and robber style game play, which can start as soon as you enter a police car by simply ramming a suspect vehicle. Driver San Francisco is a brilliant fun game and will keep us entertained until Modern Warefare 3 is out later this year.
