Summary: Nothing like the classic driver on the old school playstation. did not seem real, I played for a while being good cop and bad guy. The whole moving between cars with this new found vision of dropping in on cars and taking over the body was not cool,. it took away from its "getaway" dogma that surrounded the game, I gave it 4 stars becaus eI still have high hopes for this game, buy this for a young kid who is new to the series not for an adult who played the original!
Summary: Being a San Francisco resident, I found it great fun driving round a facsimile of my home town. Often, it took me out of the game itself and I just wanted to go and explore while driving at 150mph (something I wouldn't do in real life ... honest). This game is a lot of fun. I started to find it pretty tough toward the end, but I'm sure that's just me. Great graphics, good sense of humor and fit's my style of driving game perfectly, not over-realistic, just crazy fun.
Summary: I really liked the physics of the game whereas some people may not. This game sits somewhere between realistic and unrealistic racing. You can get in a 200 mph front-end collision and be just fine. Your car will take a lot of damage, but the damage doesn't appear to take its toll on ur car as much as you might think it should.
The rebirth and rebound of the Driver franchise. A solid game all around.
15 October 2012
Summary: The Driver franchise seemed to lose focus after the "sandbox" era of gaming came into effect after Grand Theft Auto III. There were a couple of entries in the series that fell short of fan's expectations, and quite frankly weren't very much fun. After a 5-year break however, Driver: San Francisco rebounds the series right back to the top of the "holy crap this is fun" category. The entire game takes place in-car, and that is just fine.
Summary: in general the game was fun, but you just can't keep on playing it after finishing the story for all those best cars in the game. Plus, in multiplayer mode, you can't switch cars that you own other than shifting.
