From the Manufacturer

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. Now the fate of the sunny city rests in the hands of one man: a detective, a hero, a Driver. John Tanner has put hundreds of criminals behind bars and chased injustice out of many a city, but this mission poses a threat like no other — and could be his last. 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.

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!

This game requires you to be signed online to play and requires you to continue paying to be a member of the online site. Had I been able to discover this prior to purchasing I would never have bought it. Just a waste of my money because I don't play against other people and won't be extorted to pay any online game site to play a game I've already paid for.

Story line is ok, driving these cars is like driving the Titanic, you can't turn them! They turn so slow and when you hit something you bounce around like your in a pin ball machine! It is way too hard to steer, you get tired of repeating all the missions that you failed. It requires compatibility with Windows 8 to install. Plus the Ubisoft game manager is annoying and it has like two million updates for the game and itself. Plus I have a powerful gaming computer and I never had a problem putting the settings as high as possible before, but it runs like its being ran on the weakest computer on Earth! I lower the settings to the lowest possible and it runs a little better, but still crappy! I've seen better graphics on other games and never had a problem with putting the settings like that! I just don't recommend this at all.

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.

After 45 minutes of this game installing UbiSoft Download Manager, updating, verifying and then creating a #*&# account I thought I'd finally be able to play this game. Wrong! Kept updating then told me something was wrong with MY internet connection. Seriously? How can that be when the developers of this 'game' spent the last 45 minutes updating it and installing all their insidious crap on my computer. Then I chose 'play offline'. I thought that might work, but oh no! Then I got the message: Driver.exe stopped working. UGH!

And yes, I know how to install software. I have all the Need for Speed games, TDU2, Burnout, The Sims 3, fs2004 and FSX and installed them all with no problem. This was a nightmare! Just goes to show how companies are now penalizing the people who actually PAY to use their product. Sad.
