Driv3r is one of the most hyped game of the year. Atari did a lot of stuff to push that game, lots of short films, advertising. I won't be long since it's not worth it. This game is a disgrace to videogames. It's been a long time since such an obviously half finished game had ever been released (Matrix comes to my mind, another Atari game), and I have absolutely nothing good to say about it. Technically or gameplay wise there is almost nothing good about Driv3r. An all star cast does not make a good game !
Technically Driv3r is awful, I think I had never seen such a buggy and obviously half tested game since quite a long time now (Matrix ?). The clipping is incredible, with some LOD problems too. The framerate is awful and most of the time below 30 fps.
The car driving part is ok but far, so far, from good. The cars are way too heavy and there is no speed sensation.
The parts on foot are a joke. It uses a halo like setup but since it's too sensitive you have a hard time going through doors, not even mentioning firing on things...
I'd say to stay as far as possible from that game, but since it seems some people actually think it's a good I'd say you should rent it first (if you can rent games in your country...)
The video is not as "good" as what I usually do. It was recorded by a friend of mine who came here yesterday evening. Usually I would do a new video where I play correctly but I thought having this video "as is" would be more representative of what it's like to play that game ;)
I really like the idea of GRW.. I wish the world was a little more interactive and the experience a little more varied. (44 minutes ago)
I'm definitely not getting it at launch if I'm ever playing it. (46 minutes ago)
But yea.. the beta didn't really aid my interest in the game. They may have missed the mark on this one. (47 minutes ago)
Bullet holes on corpses? lol... (47 minutes ago)
That's what I meant, but couldn't put into words when I said the game feels "hollow". Really doubt Ubisoft can fix it before launch, but maybe after several months. (1 Hour ago)
From the soldier: "But this game doesn't have that same FEEL for me. It's buggy and clunky, and floaty. There's no impact or weight to anything, I know that sounds vague but it's what I experienced." (1 Hour ago)
The man raises a lot of good points. Weapons sound weak, no bullet holes on enemy corpses, can't drag bodies to hide them, sound mix is flat and dull. Needs a lot of work. (1 Hour ago)
