This game is really fun and is seemingly endless. It has good graphics and a great storyline with many different features. Would rather play in LA than SF ;)
3.0 / 5.0
Driver: San Francisco gets back to the heart of what made this series great, it even includes the brutal old parking lot test as an extra challenge. There are a variety of missions, dares, stunts, and the mixture of action, humor and general polish. The storyline is B-movie laughable but the tone is never too serious and matches the arcade controls and body jumping premise perfectly. The controls have an old school simplified arcade feel (with boost set to forward on the stick FZero style), and other old driving game mechanics come into play like near misses and overtakes. Crashes are forgiving as are missions especially when you couple in the new and well implemented ability to jump characters (cars). The control scheme with B button handbraking and RT/LT gas and brake will feel immediately comfortable but the exaggerated drifting can take some getting used to. I felt compelled to play as the plot played out, but was equally drawn to the side missions and challenges as well. None of which ever prove impossible. San Francisco is a perfect playground for a full on arcade driving smash fest, the soundtrack is very good, the cars are cool and well represented graphically.
