Excerpt: I've waited nearly a decade for Driver: You Are The Wheelman . But before you say that's impossible, let me explain. In my high school days, while everyone else was dazzled by Kenichi Sonoda's claim to fame anime, Bubble Gum Crisis , I was drawn to his much lesser know piece, Riding Bean ( which later evolved to the far more popular manga, Gunsmith Cats ).
Excerpt: Excellent! Driver is funky, clever, and cool. Whereas most games involving driving show beautifully rendered pristine cars which can’t be damaged, Driver STARTS with ‘hoopties’ which you get to utterly thrash as you run rampant around the city. All the while, the beauty of the rendering quality itself compares quite favorably to the much celebrated Gran Turismo .
Excerpt: When Driver was first announced last year by GTI, the game was considered to be a 3D version of Grand Theft Auto. The game's plot was simple, you are an undercover cop, who has been hired by a few criminals, to do pickups, drop offs, deliveries and more. The other cops are not aware that you are a police officer and will try to stop you. If your cover is blown you have to restart the mission.
Conclusion: Assim como eu, todos os nossos leitores e leitoras que tiveram o prazer de assistir filmes de perseguição policial dos anos 70 e 80 não hesitarão em considerar Driver como um clássico. Além de um bom número de missões, o jogo ainda conta com uma série de excelentes joguinhos como perseguições, fugas e sobrevivência (onde os tiras caem do céu para tentar destruir seu carro e você tem que sobreviver o máximo de tempo possível) que prolongam a durabilidade.
