Reflections

Driv3r – Review

I've been known to sip a cold one or two (or three) when I do my gaming. I know it's probably not a very professional thing for me to do—imagine Ebert hitting the bar before his afternoon screening of The Manchurian Candidate. But videogames are time-consuming endeavors.

Driv3r – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Language, Violence

Driv3r

Game Description: The fun and thrills of the original Driver, combined with all-new gameplay mechanics, bringing you the next great racing-action game! Play as Tanner, the undercover cop from the first two hit Driver games. This time he's out to bust an immense car-theft ring—but his secret is about to be uncovered. If Tanner doesn't work fast, the mission is over—and so is Tanner's life.

Stuntman – Second Opinion

Despite the long load times and sometimes maddening difficulty level, Stuntman is a well-produced, exciting game that provides a good simulation of the life of a Hollywood daredevil.

Stuntman – Review

It's a nice idea—put the player in the movie. But movies are a passive experience. I felt like my time was wasted—the levels themselves were so frustrating that this delayed reward added injury to insult.

Stuntman – Consumer Guide

According to the ESRB, this game contains: Mild Lyrics, Violence

Stuntman

Game Description: Have you always wanted to be in the movies? Now you can, as a steel-nerved stuntman on the search for fame and fortune behind the scenes of Hollywood blockbusters. From the masterminds behind the popular Driven video game comes Stuntman, an action-packed thrill-ride through the streets and across the back lots of Hollywood. Rise from rookie driver to hero of the silver screen. Do you have what it takes? In the world of stunt driving, fear is failure. One slip and your silver screen dreams are over. The higher you climb, the higher the stakes. Grip the wheel, hit the gas, chase the glory.

Driver 2

Game Description: Fine-tuning the white-knuckled car chase formula of its predecessor, Driver 2 features more of the same high-speed, inner-city vehicular mayhem, and casts players once again as Tanner, a hard-boiled undercover cop who's posing as a badass getaway driver—this time, to stop an international mob war. With computer-animated cinematic sequences doing the lion's share of the storytelling, players must guide Tanner through more than 40 action-packed missions in four different city settings, this time on foot—which primarily allows Tanner to carjack other vehicles—as well as behind the wheel.

Driver 2 – Review

Flash forward to present day, and I find theres bit of irony and vindication. For the sequel, Driver 2: The Wheelman Is Back, is now being universally panned by gamers and press alike for the same reasons that Dale and I pointed out two years ago over the original. (Just goes to show you how hype can cloud ones judgment.)
