Greg Knoll states, "Bottom line, Shift sells the game. Imagine GTA without all the running, without the guilt and recourse of doing something crazy and illegal. Driver still needs some work. The soundtrack is utterly horrid at times, some cars are a little too sensitive to the controls and sometimes the writing is blatantly clich...and not in the funny way. All that aside though, Driver: San Franciso is more than worth it for that one aspect alone. It gives the game a new, unique identity. It may take a sequel or two for everything to come together, but it finally feels like this franchise is back on track."
