DescriptionYou are an undercover driver, trying to survive amidst an international war between American and Brazilian gangs. The action takes you to Chicago, Las Vegas, Rio and Havana, all of which are depicted in detail, with curved roads added from the first game.
As before, you have full control over the car as it storms around the streets. A new feature is the ability to get out of the car, and carjack others. This is especially useful when you have fallen victim to the advanced damage modeling.
There is a full sequence of missions to complete, as well as some pre-set challenges and a Free Driving mode allowing you to explore at your leisure.

Re-releaseSoon after the initial release, Infogrames released a limited edition package containing a revised version of the game as well as some merchandise in a cardbox, not a CD case. The limited edition was even more expensive than the original game.
The reason? Raising the cashflow and the fact that the first version of Driver 2 had many glitches (stuttering graphics at most) which were then removed. Apparently, the programmers needed some more time to fine-tune the 3D engine...
