A classic game. The graphics certainly look out dated now, but it was certainly one of my favorites from back in the day. I now have the iPod version of the game and am loving it.
Driver's true-to-life modeling of automobile physics, ultra-realistic environments, cutting-edge graphics and revolutionary replay mode allow users to experience the most elaborate, realistic interactive driving experience imaginable.
Assuming the identity of an undercover cop named Tanner, players sell their services as a driver-for-hire to the highest bidder in order to infiltrate a powerful crime ring spanning four of the nation's largest cities - New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Miami.
Extensive pre-production filming of each city brings home an unprecedented level of realism to the interactive arena, where players can clearly pick out such notable landmarks as the Empire State Building, Golden Gate Bridge and South Beach. In addition, each city has working traffic lights, wandering pedestrians who manage to get in the way, moving traffic and vigilant cops on patrol, making getaways more challenging and dynamic, immersing the player into a world that lives life on the edge.
