Driver 2 User Reviews
New, much improved graphics engine which keeps the same solid framerate as in the prequel.
Various missions and good story telling which immerses you into the role of go-between Tanner.
Artificial oponents which really will kick your butt in some missions until you uplevel your driving skills.
"Driver" is already a trademark, and it won't disappoint you - if you liked the first game, be ready to fall in love with "Driver 2".
Sometimes there happen slowdowns, you should look at them as if they were "matrix time" and it won't disturb you that much.
You should be able to leave the game for a nap in the night if you have tried about one hundred times to beat the same mission, else you might burn out.
Its games like Driver and Driver 2 which are pushing the Playstation to its limits. A few minutes playtime, and you have already forgotten that you were playing on the goold old pixel station, since the gameplay rewards you with enough fun to let yourself get immersed in the cruisable towns quickly.
If you are out for a real challenge, where it is granted that you won't succeed with only ten or twenty tries but it is still doable, you will get your fair share again. A warm up phase is granted: chasing the elevated railway didn't break your controller in the first game, and it won't bring you...
I have had Driver 2 for several years now and I still play it all the time. Why, do you ask? BECAUSE IT ROCKS THE WORLD OF GAMING!!!! Contrary to other reviews, this game is actually really good, if you are willing to put up with some minor flaws....
Caine, a US gangster who's money man, Pink Lenny, just ran out on him is mad. Why? Because Pink Lenny went and joined forces with his arch rival, Vasquez. But does Vasquez really exist? What is it Lenny knows? Who is the wheelman? Wait a minute....we already know the answer to that question....YOU are the wheelman. Tanner is your nam...
you can lose the cops easily and hi-jack cars. The graphics have definatly been improved and there are more secrets to find than driver 1 and the missions are alot more testing, and the overall gameplay has been improved.The bad:
you still dont have the chance to run down pedestrians this is about the only negative point i found with this game.well if you like that sort of thing anyway.Summary:
The damage done to the cars is realistic. I do like the way in which all you need to do is get a certain distance from the cops when being chased, and steal another vechile to get rid of them. I found the missions much harder to complete than the first driver. The story lines not as good, but i still like the gameplay and missions. probably the best improvement is that you can steal other vechiles, and that there are many different sorts and even secret vechiles to be found.
The one bad point is that you still cant run down pedestrians but i suppose doesn't really matter as the missions are ...
Good: Graphics, driving, sound fx, music, missions, cops,cutscenes and everything else apart from.......The bad:
This was the best game Iv'e ever played, includes many missions mutiplayer mode, 4 citys and the ability to get out of you car and explore the city on foot! Great game!!!! But however it reqires skill so beware....
Sound FX and Music-10.00/10.00
So overall this a must have game, but it's damn hard to complete!!!!!!!!!!
But if you havn't already got then get Driver 3 (DRIV3R)!!!!
But however this game is simulating so don't use the skills you use in the game when yo...
i wantThis is one of the hottest games I have played this whole year - superb graphics and a soundtrack by NIN make this a great action romp. Some other users have diss'd the game cuz they say it's too short, or it doesn't have enough weapons.... forget what they say, cuz the game is freaking HARD, and the weapons that you have access to require some serious skill to really master, so all in all the game is tuff to beat, and not at all suitable for pansies. Two thumbs way up!This is one of the hottest games I have played this whole year - superb graphics and a soundtrack by NIN make this a ...
Gettaway very realThe bad:
Chases, not so realSummary:
I mean, tell me who of you passed "chase the gunman" in he first 10 trials?? NOBODY. This chase is unreal!!! who is going to try to run away by a cliff? Not me, for sure.
Nevermind, cool game in spite of it.
Very good game play, the cars and the cities give the game a mob environment (cool).
It would be very cool if there would be missions where you´d had to control Tanner, rescues, kidnappings, all that stuff. A good story and the music is very cool. Does anyone knows hat song is the one when you arrive to Las Vegas?
I like to kidnap a bus and mess around the city.
The best thing for this ...
