Trivia

The scene in which Carlita calls Gator after the sour deal is taken almost verbatim from a scene in Heat (1995), where Robert De Niro's character calls a businessman who has just screwed him on a deal. See more »

A rekindled memory from my childhood that only showed how much time I wasted back then
24 August 2016 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

I remember as a kid not playing Grand Theft Auto despite me loving the idea of an open-world game. I didn't play it because it took my parents 5 minutes before turning it off and so I had to seek out a game that was tamer aside from The Simpsons Hit and Run and by god! I chose this... Probably the least functional open world game I have played. Bear in mind that since I started playing it and now I have only finished the tutorial and the first 30 seconds of the first actual level but I feel that is MORE than enough to do a review for this game.

First of all, the driving controls suck in Driver. I legitimately tried at one point to drive normally... I seriously challenge anyone to try the simple act of turning the car in this game without crashing into something, careening to the other side of the road, going onto the footpath and other such things. Namely the controls make me feel like this should have been called "Drunk Driv3r" because there have been things like the simple act of turning made me crash into something that destroyed my back windshield. I can't overtake cars even without careening into another lane and even then adjusting the car swerves it around. Being that the first real mission of the game is trying to keep up with someone, something I can do in any other open world game, I challenge you to last more than 30 seconds without failing. The added bonus to not wanting to drive in this game is the sound design is awful.

There's also the added bonus that I have found no way to stop cops other than turning the option off in the menu for free roam. It's like "A cop saw you swerve and crash a parking ticket post? DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" I'm not kidding either. When you swim your health deteriorates for no reason (you can't swim down!) Trying to drive a boat if you didn't pre-select it results in the game freezing.

Oh but I am STILL not done with the controls. The camera is so stiff gunplay doesn't work without slowly moving the camera to where you want to shoot. It's the most desensitized camera I have ever seen. I also have not found a way to conceal guns in case cops alarms are raised. I'd also say the graphics... The in-game graphics look like an N64 game and the pre-rendered cut-scenes are put to shame by Final Fantasy VII.

So just a recap, this is a game called Driver where the driving sucks, there are no ways to hide from cops in an open-world game, the camera is so stiff I could declare it clinically dead, you can't go onto boats without the game freezing, you can't swim, the missions are too precise for controls this bad, the sound design is bad, the gunplay is almost non-functional, the camera almost has you feel like a malfunctioning robot and the graphics are beaten wholeheartedly by games that came out on the previous generation of consoles... Did they get ONE thing right?! Aside from walking in a straight line I couldn't find a damn thing.
