Summary: Just so everyone gets a little education, if it wasn't for the Driver series, the GTA series wouldn't be where they are now. Reflections were the innovators of the driving-through-the-city type of games. Now, stepping away from the education. I've played all the Driver games. They contain a great storyline, as if it was a detective movie you were playing (kind of like watching Shaft or Lethal Weapon).
Conclusion: good graphics ,ok gameplay but not good enough to beat GTA vice city or GTA 3 for that matter that pretty much sums it up the main problem with it is that you can;t do what ever you please like in GTA...you've got to follow the story and do mission after mission until you complete it,you can't just choose to go after some random person like on streets of LA and if you get stuck you can;t just play around the city or collect guns in the city to help like on GTA and it got...
Summary: I was hoping for a Vice City type game, my favourite game on any platform. The free-ranging ability, go anywhere, follow whatever mission order you liked.... plus all the little extras like rampages, jumps, hidden items, and the wide assortment of missions and vehicles made that game spectacular. I was very encouraged to hear that Driv3r was coming out, and that it was very similar to Vice City. Fortunately I decided to rent it before buying, an excellent decision!
Summary: This game has it's flaws, but makes up for it with the fact that it is actually fun to play and has beautiful detail all throughout. The maps are replicas of actual cities composed by walking photogrophers that had to take 90,000 shots of each city! The major downfall in this game is the control, mainly for on foot play. It is very difficult to aim your gun accuratley and sometimes impossible to make smooth runnings around corners and between obstacles.
Excerpt: "...The signs were apparent in Driver 2, where the franchise pitched up against Grand Theft Auto and allowed players to reach beyond the wheel and hit the streets on foot. So Driv3r takes it a step further by combining driving elements with free roaming action adding to the mix bikes and boats, whilst dropping any aspects that failed on the last outing. However it comes as a disappointment that when the missions start to unravel as the same series ...
Summary: This is an alright game, but its limited to what you can do, missions totaly dumb, and the only really fun thing you can do is drive, and it depends how long you can spend just driving around shooting people which isnt fun. Also as you drive along its like no other game before its unique!
Summary: Both GTA Vice City and Driv3r have plus and minus pionts all through Driv3r has mainly a minus side. The story is in depth and the cut scenes that link missions are seamless almost cinematic quality which was stunning. The variation in vehicles is immense each with completly different physics for each one which can be a nightmare to control at high speeds. Controling Tanner is fun (not!) he can be very twitchy at times and not aim at the desired target.
