With crime lord Charles Jericho now on the loose San Francisco faces a terrible threat. Only one man can stand against him.

He’s the most ruthless crime lord to ever prowl the streets of the City by the Bay. His name is Charles Jericho, and he certainly did not bring his heart to San Francisco.

Step into the driver’s seat as the hardened detective and get ready for a relentless manhunt that could end either with the restoration of justice or the setting of the sun on the Golden Gate Bridge forever.

    Super fun and super original spin on the genre!, June 17, 2012

    = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
    This review is from: Driver: San Francisco (DVD-ROM)

    I’ve never been big on racing games, though I did enjoy GTA 4 and Saints Row 2 and 3 immensely. I think because they were more than racing games and that had a big appeal. Driver: San Francisco is definately more than just a racing game. It’s a very unique approach that makes it very interesting and loads of fun. Its got a great story, the cars are amazing the graphics of the city are amazing and its just loads of fun!

    Every once in a while I hit a frame rate issue but it hasn’t happened very often, usually its very smooth. The popping around from car to car is pretty fun and what I’m discovering is that you don’t have to be the fastest car or the best driver to win a race, sometimes popping around and taking out your competition is more effective. There’s a lot more than racing though, theres stunts and jumps and other fun.

    My only complaint, and this is just the GTA 4 in me, is that when you drive on the sidewalk, everyone jumps out of the way. I’m still hoping I get to hit a few of them but I never do!

    The way its setup reminds me a lot of Prototype actually with lots of challenges, side missions, dares, etc and theyre all over the city and you just have to find them on the map and go try it (sometimes more than once to get it right).

    I paid $7.49 for this game on a download sale and its worth every cent. I’m getting a ton of great gameplay out of it and I certainly recommend the game!

    Very Disappointed, February 5, 2013

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    We tried everything and are still unable to play this game on the pc. I hate that we wasted our money to download it. I would not recommend this item to anyone. We recently just purchased this game for the playstation and my son loves that. We are just very disappointed with the download version

    Awesome gameplay ideas are plagued by sheer repetition, March 28, 2012

    The Good: Lots of awesome real world cars, game looks good, cars handle well, huge variety of missions, story is interesting and off-beat, characters are actually likable

    The Bad: Side missions repeat ad nauseum, story is unbelievable, a lot of the cars feel the same, boost almost feels useless at low speeds

    The Driver series has been pretty rocky ever since the first game came out in 1998. The PS1 classic was one of a kind, but sparked some bad to average sequels. San Francisco is the come back for the series and it is very and strong will please fans of the original. The story is kind of weird and takes a super natural spin with the lead guy (John Tanner) getting into an accident and falling into a coma after wanted criminal Jericho smashes into his car. Tanner can now leave his body and float around the city entering any car he wants and this is what the game is wrapped around.

    Most of the game consists of various side missions such as dares, speed chases, races, protecting vehicles etc. You can leave the car on the fly and move around to any car and smash into the car you need to take down. This can also be used in races to slow opponents down so you can win, but don’t consider this cheating since most of the races are very challenging. Some times you have to swap between two cars constantly and keep them in 1st and 2nd place which is pretty exhilarating. Or you can just enter cars in oncoming traffic and smash them up to win the race. This can also be down in other various missions and its great fun and never really gets old to take a big rig and smash it into cars to take them out.

    However, this all gets old very fast because there are 50+ to finish and as you unlock more of the city you get more side missions to complete. Dares consist of doing certain things like drifts, speed limits, jumps, etc. The reason for completing these is for willpower which you can use to buy cars and new garages to unlock more cars. The selection of cars is awesome with pretty much every popular car you can think of. They even added the DeLorean and if you hit 88 Mph you get willpower! Driving is first person view looks great and the car handles well and drifting, jumping, and doing crazy stunts is great fun and the city is huge and you really won’t get bored here during the first half of the game. After the last half picks up you will be more engaged in the interesting story and probably stop with the side missions because they just repeat forever almost.

    On another note the main missions are really interesting and towards the end of the game you really get to use your super natural powers, and overall the main missions have more diversity than the side ones. The voice acting is great and the characters are people you actually get interested in because of the drama the story brings you through. While the whole story is hokey you still get a kick out of being able to veer away from the realistic type of game while keeping it feeling pretty real with awesome licensed cars. You can boost in these cars and unlock a thrill cam, but the boost feels useless at low speeds because it doesn’t boost you at all and you can’t really use it to boost out of a spin.

    Multiplayer is pretty fun, but overall you will get sick of the game due to the constantly repeated missions and there’s only so much you can do with a car. I highly recommend this for anyone into cars, action, or just plain old arcade style racers. If you can stomach the repetitive side missions, or if that’s just what you like, then you will find a good 25+ hour game here with the huge city of Frisco ready to explore.
