Driver San Francisco- PC

 

Driving games seem to fall into two camps: simulation and arcade. This division shows just how stagnant the genre has become. Just because a game's based around cars, doesn't mean that they have to all be so similar. Of all things, Driver: San...

I never thought that a driving game could be witty. I usually reserve that adjective for games with more plot and character interaction. Yet Driver San Francisco is filled with Quantum Leap-style exchanges, as Tanner jumps into the bodies of random...

Driver: San Francisco review [360/PS3/PC]

 

It's no secret that the Driver name lost nearly all of its credibility back in the early '00s. Try as the team might to restore their reputation, what the series really needed was a good long break, and enough time to make Driver: San Francisco a...

Review: Driver San Francisco is the Fresh Take the Series Needed All Along

 

Despite its bizarre premise, this mind-jumping installment finally fulfills Driver's promise from years ago.

After waiting patiently to proclaim it for 12 years now, I can finally admit to finishing the last mission of Driver on the original PlayStation. Titled "The President's Run," this frustratingly difficult finale was far from the quality standard of fun...

It's a game with possibly the most ridiculous and difficult-to-explain premise of any driving game. But what does IGN think of the final game?

Driver: San Francisco PC Preview

 

It's been over ten years since the original Driver drifted onto Sony's Playstation, offering players four huge, open-world cities to explore by car. As the series progressed, however, each game became more and more ambitious, focusing less on driving...

The Driver series has kind of fallen off the radar in the past few years, but Driver: San Francisco is looking to rectify that. The driving is fluid and exhilarating, the Shift mode is easy and innovative, and the cars are varied and fast. The whole...

Driver: San Francisco

 

Driver San Francisco could have been a one-trick pony but it has managed to use that trick in a variety of clever and interesting ways, ensuring the driving gameplay never becomes tiresome or generic.

Race events are good fun thanks to the excellent connection cars have with the road, due to the weighty handling model. But you don't need to approach these contests like a standard racer: If you're falling too far behind the pack, you can use Shift to...

Driver San Francisco Review

 

Driver: San Francisco isn’t the arcade racer’s saviour, but it does introduce a new and interesting twist on the standard proceedings. The forgettable story is forgiven when the package of fast, furious and fun driving is brought back to save the...

Shifting is incredibly cool; Decent Car List; Great Sandbox to play in

Forgettable Story; Some mission types can get repetitive; Difficulty curve turns up to 10 near the end

Driver: San Francisco

 

In a thinly veiled dig at the Driver series' ill-fated on foot experiments and its hero John Tanner, Grand Theft Auto III included a mission entitled ‘Two Faced Tanner', in which ‘Tanner' is described as ‘strangely animated' and of being ‘more or less...

Consumer review by:

Driver: San Francisco- PC

 

Without its shifting element, Driver: San Francisco would be enjoyable enough mediocrity, but nothing special next to other driving games. With shifting, it's one of the most enjoyable racing games in a very long time.
