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 ;)

Unfortunately Atari did not send the game to anyone in the press before the release date. Usually a very bad sign for a game...
