Product Description

With crime lord Charles Jericho now on the loose, San Francisco faces a terrible threat. Only one man can stand against him. His name is John Tanner. He is the DRIVER. DRIVER SAN FRANCISCO is the return of the established action driving video game series that has sold 14 million copies worldwide. Players will race through the iconic streets of San Francisco across 210 square miles of terrain, with the ability to SHIFT between over 130 licensed muscle and super cars to complete missions, challenges and dares. With its timeless atmosphere, unique car handling and renewed playability, DRIVER SAN FRANCISCO revitalizes the classic free-roaming, cinematic car chase experience for the current generation of video game platforms.

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.

Just picked up my copy from GS today, Ubisoft did a great job, the city is great, physics are better than GTA but obviously not as good as GT5, graphics are very good. the city is alive, you can see cop chases and stuff while enjoying free drive, and finally a game where you can drive regular cars too, not just exotics, the game is perfect,with two major flaws, theres no manual transmission and no dynamic weather, its always sunny. In game music is very good, engine sounds and other effects are not bad too, multiplayer is very fun. Grab your copy and enjoy! Let me know if you have any questions or comments, I ll try to answer as quick as possible.

PS: If you loved Midtown Madness series, you ll be very happy with this game.

Driver SF: Best Car Chase Game of All Time?

Turn the key and burnout in Driver San Francisco, which captures the iconic car chase feeling like few other game before it, including the previous Drivers and classic Driver 1.

THE CITY 10/10
The city of San Francisco unlocks by playing missions and mini games, with the difficultly level amping up each mission to that of the classic Driver's, later in the game. The city itself is one of the most realized cities in a game today, thanks to very impressive, but maneuverable traffic counts, all at a blazing 60 frames per second. The level of detail parallels something you'd see in an arcade game; very colorful, plenty of variety and alive. Thousands of pedestrians line the streets, definitely giving the city a realistic feel, unlike some other open city games that are like ghost towns... This is comparable to Midnight Club 2 and 3's massive traffic count. The game is a hi res work of art, with blue skies, bustling streets and some of the best hills in the world for flying through the air on, then slamming back to the ground with force. It's like a roller coaster on quite a few SF hills. It's a very large game, I'd say bigger than Midnight Club LA, but not as massive as TDU2, though that game didn't have the amazing detail of DSF either. Plenty to explore for hours. There is currently not a day/night cycle. I don't think game cities get much better, and I've been playing car games since the 80's. Top variety of roads, freeways and more. Also, plenty of random cop chases going on to watch or join.

Plenty of variety of licensed vehicles including sportcars, muscle cars, big rigs, mini cars, trucks, buses, vans, you name it but no motorcycles sadly. Absolutely impressive variety onscreen at one time.

Full disclosure: I bought this game because I live in San Francisco and thought it'd be neat to virtually drive around my city at breakneck speeds in exotic cars I can't afford.

My reaction:
1. The video game map of SF is not accurate to reality. So if you were planning on moving or visiting here, and were hoping to use this game as a way to help you learn how to get around the city...Well, I'd re-think that plan. The general locations of the neighborhoods are correct, but some prominent landmarks are in totally random spots or are missing all together. I guess I can't blame Ubisoft for doing this, otherwise it'd be an entire map of parallel and perpendicular streets in a grid (with lots of 4-way stops). Would be kind of boring. I was a bit disappointed at first, but I got over it because...

2. This game is extremely entertaining, packed with value. Now, It's probably weird using the word "value" to describe a video game. But hear me out. There are literally hundreds of missions, races, dares, activities, chases, etc. that have kept me busy for weeks. I guess I've gotten used to the standard game play lengths of a few days for video games nowadays, but it's insane how much there is to do in this game. I was disappointed after shelling out the money for this game and seeing that the map is barely like San Francisco, but I quickly changed my mind and felt I got a great deal with the entertainment factor.

3. Graphics are great, the variety of cars is plentiful, online multi-player is pretty fun, and the "Shift" feature is a time saver and brings a creative/unique dynamic to the gameplay.

I had never played a "Driver" series game before, so I really didn't know what to expect going in. The opening of this game plays like a movie, and the cutscenes are incredibly well done and detailed when focused on the main characters. Yeah, the story gets a little loose, at times, but just the fact they built a racing game around the story is an achievement in itself.

The big "hook" of Driver: SF is the new "Shift" system. Simply put, you push X and you "shift" above SF, and can jump into any car you choose! It's a neat idea, incorporated into the game and online well, but feels like a little more could have been done with it.

If you're looking for a sim style type of racing game, yeah look elsewhere (Forza or GT). One thing I will say is after play many racers on the PS3 (Midnight Club, Blur, Split/Second, TDU2), the drifting in this game seems a lot looser than all of those. You'll fishtail a LOT if you are not careful managing your gas/brakes. This might not faze an experienced racer, but someone who's not much of one is going to have trouble with a lot of the missions.

I do like the whole "upgrade" system, and the game pretty much forces you to buy them as some missions cannot be completed unless you've got the ability bar upgrade, the recharging speed upgrade, etc. You can "free ride" and earn WP (the game's currency) for doing pretty much anything (avoiding cars, drifting, big jumps). So really Driver can be what you make of it.

The game runs very smooth and graphically is sound. There's no slowdown/lag that I have been able to see, online or otherwise. That's pretty much a must achievement in a racing game.

So why am I not giving this 5 stars?
