Review: Driver: San Francisco (Playstation 3)


So here's a spoiler alert. Most of the game is actually played while Tanner is in a coma. You don't know it right away, but if you've got any sense at all you'll quickly realize that Tanner isn't quite right, nor is the world around him. Tanner...

Driver game I've played since the original that made me feel the way the original did. The cars all handle well and the story is cheesy or whatever, but I like the care and attention to details that went into the game. The menus are great and work...

Driver: San Francisco Review


Driver reinvents itself after a serious out-of-body experience.

Astral projection mechanic; fun city to explore; well-handling cars; kitschy motif

Boxed-in streets

Driver San Francisco Review


The jump to the supernatural realm may seem puzzling at first, but it makes for an exciting new way to play. Couple that with some wonderful multiplayer offerings and you have one of the most pleasant surprises of the year.

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...

Driver: San Francisco Review


The Driver series has certainly seen its ups and downs over the years. The premise has always been a good one, and outside of the harsh difficulty of the games, most of them are considered classics.

Shifting is awesome ; Plenty to see and do ; Great presentation

Difficulty brick walls ; Feels over too soon

The Driver series has certainly seen its ups and downs over the years. The premise has always been a good one, and outside of the harsh difficulty of the games, most of them are considered classics. Fast forward to today and Ubisoft is hoping to bring...

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...

Driver: San Francisco Review


Driver: San Francisco's inspired shift mechanic and wealth of action-packed content make it an absolute blast that revives the franchise.

Shift keeps the action fast paced and exciting ; Huge open-world city to explore ; Masses of content to play through ; Fun online modes

Ridiculous storyline ; Frame rate issues with split-screen ; Missions get repetitive toward the end

Each of the main missions has a story attached to it. Sometimes they relate back to the main narrative, while others involve ordinary citizens who've gotten themselves into a spot of trouble, such as parents whose child has been kidnapped or...

Driver: San Francisco Review


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 Preview


The original Driver debuted to widespread critical acclaim back in 1999 on the PlayStation. A bright future seemed inevitable. But the sequel released a year later and critics weren't so enthusiastic, and the series sort of downshifted to mediocrity....

It’s also plain that the storyline will indeed take center-stage during the campaign. We catch glimpses of it during this demo, and I’ll be interested to see how things play out. The graphics and sound are competent; there are some great special...
