The racing genre is in desperate need of an overhaul at the moment, with the genre becoming just a bit too bland and boring. Titles like Gran Turismo 5 may be stunning to look at, but they don’t exactly translate to a fun experience now, do they? On the other end of the spectrum Split Second was a brief shining light that fizzled, overshadowed by the magnificent Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit. Developers need to pull their racers into the auto shop, get it up on the blocks and start tinkering under the hood. Infuse a little life into the genre, or in Driver: San Francisco’s case, a little near-death.
