    Intense fun for hours on end, September 9, 2011

    This review is from: Driver San Francisco (Video Game)

    Driver: San Francisco is not just “yet another” Driver title to tack onto the legacy of the first two games. The developers said that they wanted to go back to the drawing board and figure out what made Driver 1 so good and why Driv3r and Driver: Parallel lines was so bad. They figured it out.

    I don’t have to really talk about the good and bad because there’s just not much bad to the game at all. But let’s break it down:

    Ghostly “Shift” mode
    ——————–
    The biggest change of the game is the ability to alter your mental perception from one driver in a car to another driver in another car. I thought that I’d hate this shifting experience, but it really works and adds something new to the game.

    When you’re in a tough chase or see a car that has the right speed or maneuverability, you can simply jam the A button and pick another car to drive.

    Although I still like the original Driver better because you had to haul and make few to no mistakes to get away from the cops, the shifting ability still adds so much to the gameplay that I am forced to love it. And you can still drive hard to get away from the cops (or the bad guys) when you want to — and sometimes the game makes you.

    The Physics
    ———–
    I really liked the physics of the first Driver game whereas many people didn’t. This game sits somewhere between realistic and Need for Speed. 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 your car as much as you might think it should.

    That said, you can still feel the rubber hitting the road. And when you get air, the car feels like you might think it should.

    The Story and Its Presentation
    ——————————
    The story is presented in full-screen video between levels and in little dialog segments while playing. But they have done an outstanding job on the graphics, facial expression, character animation and voice acting.

    You’ll be drawn into the story of a drug/crime lord from Driver 1 (he may be in some of the other Driver games, too — I’m not 100% sure). But you won’t need any Driver 1 playtime to understand everything because of how it’s all set up. You’ll see strong emotional responses from the 3D models that will suck you in and relate with the characters as much as you might a decent RPG. More than you’d expect in a driving game.

    Just Playing
    ————
    Some people just want a driving game. You can skip through the story elements and just follow the on-screen objectives. Or you can play one of several (it must be 20 or 30) other modes, both single and multiplayer.

    Graphics
    ——–
    The cars are realistic. The people on the streets look decent. The buildings look pretty good. What I love is that the motion blur is perfect. Not too much, not too little. Some games, you can’t tell what’s going on from all the blur. And in other games, it doesn’t feel like you’re really going fast. Driver SF pulls it off nicely.

    Sound and Music
    —————
    The car sounds are quite good. The rumbling and roaring of the engines rarely becomes monotonous or annoying. That must have taken a miracle from their sound department. The music is often catchy or fun or simply takes a back-seat while the game’s intense action pulls you in. You’ll recognize a lot of the songs.

    Quick Moral Note
    —————-
    You play a good guy in this game. There are lots of shades of gray going on, but you’re overall a good guy. So if you don’t like to play games where you’re killing cops and junk, don’t worry about it here. Your goal is to lose the cops because they don’t know you are a cop.

    Overall Feel
    ————
    You may feel like me to start with: unable to drive. But with just a tiny bit of practice and just a little time, you’ll have the game mastered enough to have an insanely fun time. I picked it up quicker than the first Driver game because the controls make more sense to me. Everything feels like it belongs where it is.

    Final Judgment: A-grade Game!
    Finally, Driver fans will get a game worth playing.

    This review is from: Driver San Francisco (Video Game)

    This game is so much fun and pulse pounding that it makes me sweat everytime I get into the action. Let’s just say I haven’t experienced this type of a rush in racing games since Burnout Revenge circa ’06. So it’s been a long time for me, I typically avoid racing games. This game absolutely lives up to its hype. I love everything about it. The story is awesome, however it seems like it gets off track just a little bit with the quirky side missions. Don’t get me wrong they are fun but I cannot seem to tie them into the main story…anyway, that doesn’t take away from any fun the game has to offer. I put about 3 hours into this game thus far and I’m in Chapter 2 right now. So far I am really enjoying myself. NOTE if you are a hardcore racer, then you may think this game is kinda corny. I played NFS Hot Pursuit and I had fun, but this game seems to be more of my speed. I like Driver San Francisco because it’s Story Mode is cool, I think Driving/Racing games are cool as long as they have some decent story that I can follow. All and all, I highly recommend this game if you are a casual racing fan, but If you are hardcore with it, they I recommend you wait until a more hardcore racer comes out. Thanks

    Ps. The cars are licensed so they look great, so far I’ve upgraded with prizes to a Dodge Challenger SRT-8 and boy does it move!!!!
