Driv3r – Consumer Guide

Scott Jones's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Language, Violence

Parents: the violence is generally of the car-on-car variety, so it's fairly impersonal. The on-foot segments are a little more visceral, but it's still basically bloodless. The language gets a little raw at moments (thus the game's Mature rating).

Younger gamers will likely be put off by the convoluted plot and brutal difficulty of the game.

Older gamers will likely be put off by these things as well.

Hardcore fans of the Driver series may want to start looking for a new franchise to pin their hopes and dreams on.

Fans of driving games like Need For Speed: Underground and Midnight Club 2 will probably appreciate Driv3r's marvelous physics engine.

Fans of Grand Theft Auto III might feel a gravitational pull towards the game, and consider Driv3r as something to hold them over until Grand Theft Auto III: San Andreas ships later this year. My advice: save your cash.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers will miss out on certain audio cues, like the sound of the police sirens. Otherwise, all cut scenes are subtitled, which means no one will miss out on a single word of the game's phony tough-guy dialogue.
