In the end, I just don't have the words to describe how much fun this game is. Rarely does a game captivate the stoic and hypercritical Game Revolution office, but Driver has done just that. We're hooked, and we highly advise getting hooked yourself. Besides, it's a better way to learn how to drive than Driver's Ed. Trust me.
One-hundred and twenty-eight bit Dreamcast my ass! Who needs it if it doesn't have Driver! The PlayStation lives, umbilically hooked to GT's latest masterpiece. Oh, and did I say I love this game? It's pure driving poetry.
En résumé, Driver nous offre un cocktail d'action détonnant avec une pincée d'aventure et un soupçon de série américaine. Le tout servi avec une bande son disco d'enfer et des doublages professionnels. Du tout bon, Starsky !
The replay value was very high due to the many extras other than the main plot. There are a ton of missions to complete, with 4 large cities to explore, a few mini-games to enjoy, as well as a special cheat section to activate your codes. Driver is of the years top-notch titles, that deserves to be up there with such titles as Final Fantasy 7, Metal Gear Solid, and Xenogears.
Driver is origineel, kent een aardig plot en speelt ontzettend lekker. Het is een game die je ongetwijfeld zwaar pakt en niet snel meer zal loslaten. Kortom: check die shit!
Siempre has sido el chico bueno. Siempre has sido el héroe. Siempre has mantenido a los malos a raya. Hasta ahora.
The one main thing this game has though is staying power. I often found myself throwing the controller in disgust and turning off the game only to be drawn back to it shortly afterwards. It has that special ability to hold your interest and make you want to go further into its depths. The game is addicting! It is also a pure adrenaline rush that will have you smiling ear to ear when you complete a particularly difficult mission and then reply your game back in the excellent Directors mode and watch all the cop cars pile up! Overall this is one of the most enjoyable Playstation titles to come out for the console this year.
The Video Game Critic
The scenery is detailed and attractive, but Driver suffers from a terrible case of "draw-in", where entire buildings suddenly appear in front of you as you approach. There's also some slowdown when things get hectic, but that should be expected considering the nature of the game. There are some technical issues, but they should not chase you away from this thrill-a-minute title.
Let's not beat around the bush here...If you were captivated by the Grand Theft Auto 'daring' mission concept...hooked on Destruction Derby's 'crash 'em and smash 'em' formula...enthralled with the NFS4 Cop car chase mode...mesmerized with the Test Drive 5 Bonus levels... then look no further as all of your dreams have come true in one fell swoop.
Driver är som ni förstår egentligen inte alls något bilspel i vanlig bemärkelse. Det är en trafiksimulator. Med medtrafikanter, rödljus och trafikstockningar. Men lyckligtvis förlagt till en något mer upphetsande miljö än den vanliga rusningstrafiken på vägen till jobbet.
Given the style of this game, there should have been better analog controller support. With its variety of different types of driving games and storyline Undercover missions, Driver has a lot to offer. Overall, this is a difficult, but very entertaining game and will provide many hours of enjoyment and a few hours of frustration, which is why I give it a score of 84.
On the whole Driver has stood the test of time admirably. It’s as fun as the day it was released and doesn’t look like changing. With Driver 2 in the offing its reduced price is a great opportunity for series virgins to take a bite of the cherry and see how it plays. Driver easily stands up against the likes of Crazy Taxi and Midtown Madness because of its 70’s cop film slant, and despite a dodgy plot you won’t care about and AI that seems a little too brutal on occasion, it’s superb.
Spel för Alla
Det här är ett grymt bra och nydanande bilspel. Driver kräver en hel del av dig, det är inte helt lätt att manövrera bilen. Motorljuden är råa och bilen rör sig mycket realistiskt, den är möjligtvis något "sladdbenägen"... Det är precis så här man själv vill hantera en rå amerikanare med en maffig V8:a under huven när man är jagad av polisen. "Vem? Jag..!?

In conclusion Driver is a top-notch driving package that is well worth taking a gander of a look. If you're not convinced, just play it safe and invest a measly amount of time and money on a rental of Driver. It does have a couple problems that keep it from being a classic, but this truly original driving game should not be missed out.
The music and sound effects in Driver are quite good. The '70s funk music really gives the game a gritty underworld feel that puts you in the mood for some lawbreaking action. The sound effects are all actually quite well done, which unfortunately can't be said for the voices of the characters in the game. Overall, Driver is a game that might be mediocre in its presentation but more than makes up for it in its gameplay and concept. The best thing about Driver is the feeling you get when you're speeding away from the fuzz after smashing your way through a roadblock. It's the feeling of impending doom - which can only be overcome by keeping your wits about you and your thumb on the gas - that makes playing Driver quite fun.
It’s not difficult to fathom Driver’s performance at retail, where it has flown off the shelves. It presses all of the right buttons, marrying real-world and movie components to often thrilling effect. Bar its propensity to crash, and some repetitious gameplay, this is great stuff.
I was severely disappointed by Driver. Hoping to recreate an old anime experience, I was presented with competent car handling with occasional sparks of car-chase excitement debilitated by a game design inept at immersion. What sums it up best is Driver's tribute to the French Connection stage where I chased a monorail in pursuit of a passenger. It goes through all the motions of the film's most riveting scene. But with a horrid FMV scene opening the level, ridiculously tight restrictions in chasing the monorail, and zero follow-up FMV to close the level, its fails to capture any sense of the tension and drama that made the whole sequence famous.
