@Ve3tro: "Not had a chance to download the Driver: San Francisco demo? Don't worry we've got you covered. We took a look at the 3 available missions and recorded them in the process."
Wow. That looked terrible.
oh my. this game looks awful
Plays even worse. Leave it to Ubisoft to release this crap. Played the demo for about 2 minutes and quit right after.
The Demo didn't show a hint of promise... The whole idea of taking over somebody's body or mind while their driving seems so idiotic. The Demo didn't proof otherwise, perhaps a cool idea saved for another game but just not this game! I often wonder if a lot of these games are made without ever being thrown into a think-tank group for some proper feedback.
To me the game looks like its fun, but that freaking shift just kills it for me. I know they're trying to be different and all, but in this case I don't think it was worth it.
A few things. First off, the dialogue and voice acting is WHACK. There is no other way to describe it except to say that it's awfully cringe inducing. Yeesh. Second, the story mode looks like garbage. Much of that is probably due in part to the lame voice acting but the missions just don't look that exciting to be honest. The original "Driver" and "Driver 2" were all about that retro 70s feel and this game has none of that whatsoever. Weak. What sucks is that the game is set in a great location which is perfect for car chases and yet it just comes across as "yet another driving game". Finally, while the single player looks like crap, I must admit that the multiplayer looks great. The shift feature looks like absolute garbage when it's being used in story mode, and whereas it comes off as a HUGE FAIL in SP, if you search around on Youtube for vids of folks using it in MP, that's where it really shines. It's a prime example of a feature that works in one area of a game but not the other.
what a pointless demo, zero skill, zero handling, zero fun, what is the point making crap like this
I've never seen a game trailer that actively disgusted me this much. I despise the VA.
This game will fail hard and i hope it does. The demo sucked what are the developers thinking they must know this game is not anything like the GOOD original Driver!!
It's an awful game period
I played the demo as I was looking forward to trying this game out. Was let down by it though. Something about the handling/driving just didn't feel right, and put me off.
Didn't like the demo, the shift thing was hard to use and understand... Liked the original Driver on the PS1 though :)
