aka: Driver: Você é o Motorista, Driver: You are the Wheelman

Description official descriptions

As Tanner, the player will go undercover to be the wheelman for a crime syndicate in order to break open a big case. On the way, they will have to eliminate competition, drive getaway cars, scare some people silly, evade plenty of police, dodge bad guys, smash through a few windows, save their love interest, and much more through four cities (Miami, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York).

The game gives a lot of freedom to navigate the streets of the various cities, allowing to cut through alleyways or across sidewalks and parks while smashing benches and driving over traffic cones, and provides a wide variety of vehicles to ride through the different missions, as well as the ability to perform various maneuvers such as donuts, 180 spins, or reverse spins.

Also includes several game modes such as Practice, Carnage (cause as much damage as possible), Dirt Track (time trials), Pursuit (the player chases after someone), Survival (four super cops chase after the player), Lose the Cop (the player must avoid a cop tailing on them), and Drive About (just drive about the city and admire the scenery).

There is also a full Director mode, allowing to place cameras to catch the best moments in the custom replay file.

1001 Video Games

Driver appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.


In the UK, Antonio Fargas took part of the advertising campaign for Driver (Antonio Fargas is best know for playing Huggy Bear in the classic 70s TV series Starsky And Hutch, which partly inspired the creation of the game)


  • The game was partially inspired by the 1993 film Driver by Eoin Moore.
  • It seems that Driver was heavily inspired by the 1978 movie The Driver, starring Ryan O' Neal, and Bruce Dern. The most notable is the first level of the game, taken from a scene in the film in which "The Driver" has to prove his skill to some gangsters. Some of the crash sound effects used for the game, also came from the film itself.


The physics engine in Driver seems to occasionally have hiccups when the player has collisions in close quarters. The player's car (or other cars) will fly up hundreds of feet into the air. See screenshots for some samples.
