About Driver San Francisco

With crime lord Charles Jericho now on the loose San Francisco faces a terrible threat. Only one man can stand against him. He has driven the streets of a hundred cities, spent his whole life putting criminals behind bars. But to take Jericho down, there can be no turning back, and he knows that this may very well be his last ride. His name is John Tanner. He is the Driver. Driver: San Francisco marks the return of the blockbuster driving franchise. Gamers play John Tanner, a hardened detective involved in a relentless manhunt throughout the City by the Bay. Thanks to a groundbreaking gameplay feature, players can now seamlessly shift between more than a hundred licensed vehicles, keeping them constantly in the heart of the action. With its timeless atmosphere, unique car handling and renewed playability, Driver: San Francisco offers the free-roaming, classic, cinematic car chase experience.

Summary

Cool cars, an interesting new 'Shift' mechanic and impressive multiplayer makes the streets of San Francisco worthy of a visit.

We like

  • The 'Shift' mechanic adds a new dynamic, particularly online
  • The impressively-designed city of San Francisco and its rolling roads
  • The instant pick-up-and play appeal. Picking and choosing your favourite type of events

We dislike

  • The rubbish characters and corny dialogue.
  • The drifting lacks 'oomph' and aggression
  • Slamming an opponent takes you crudely out of the action
