Promising start for the now legendary Driver series
3 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I liked the look of this game when I saw the first viewings of it. Upon buying it, I was even more hooked, despite its many flaws. The storyline in which undercover cop Tanner has to take on the role as THE DRIVER to bring down the mighty Castaldi, the kingpin of crime in America, is quite entertaining, although I personally lost interest toward the end.

The very first 'mission' involves showing your prowess behind the wheel in an underground car park. That's rather good, although it's not as hard as it may look.

Graphics wise, Driver is good, but when driving along the wide variety of roads, other vehicles may simply 'pop-up' suddenly in front of you, driving through a solid object is not impossible (I've even driven through a building) and any damage sustained is unrealistic. Another flaw is that you don't even get bends in the road! 90% or so of the undercover missions involve simple A-B driving, and is rather repetitive, the vehicles we can drive all sound exactly the same, and you cannot get out of the car and walk around the cities. Despite these serious flaws, Driver is an enjoyable game (up to a point) and was a more than satisfactory start to a good series of games, even if it cannot match the likes of GTA. 7/10
