After Driver was released this was a sore disappointment. Awful framerates and an onfoot mechanic that just did not work left us with a sluggish game that paled in comparison to the original.

Actually I really enjoyed this game. The freedom to choose any car around you was cool. The best car was the Austin Mini Rose in Havana. It was a secret car with a V8 engine!

Hell yeh - I remember that mini - stored in a big underground bunker.
I loved the Chicago part of this game, as they got the feel of a late seventies/early eighties action thriller just right. It has the same cold, depressing feeling of some of the films that I love, and the Firebird/Camaro look-a-like and the secret Buick GSX suited the city perfectly. This part of the game is similar to the 1978 film The Driver (though set in LA), but was more acurately similar to a Chuck Norris film called Code of Silence (1985) in which there was a car chase between a tatty 1975 Firebird and a Cadillac limo in Chicago; even the background music is nearly identical.

Pulling a wheelie in the Mini was the best bit of the game. :D

Why in the world does this have such shitty graphics compared to the original Driver? I bought this game when it came out and I was like "What The Fuck?" GameStop wouldnt even give me a full price for it back, I was pissed.

Great News Everyone!
It was confirmed in the 2006 Tokyo Game Show that there will be a new Driver game which will be set for the PS3! They haven't actually told us the name of the coming game though.

This game was such a disappointment for me after playing the original Driver. Terrible framerate, poor graphics and frustrating missions. :mad:

Driv3r was inferior compared to Driver 2, yes i know you have guns there but the aiming is terrible, and the most dumbest thing is that Tanner can't Punch people, instead he only can attack with weapons .

I agree with BixNood and jdub462. I remember playing this game as a kid with my father, Absolutely excellent game. Very difficult though.

of course they're bad, the game was made in 2000!

Reply to Star Wars Fanatic,

If it's the Driving you enjoyed from the first game, and this contains just that, then why do the on-foot mechanics concern you at all? Besides, the on foot wasn't made to play around with (1.), it was made to simply switch cars or press a switch or two here and there(2.), that's all. But still, why should the on foot concern?

Star Wars Fanatic EN (494)

2010-03-23 19:56

Indeed, but they made a big thing about it at the time. I just felt that Driver 2 lost its focus a bit and had some serious performance issues compared to the original.

Driver 2 is a fun and good game, but I can never beat it. :cry:

Being quite honest, I never beat it either :/

2010-03-25 16:28

Yeah, the on-foot did get carried away, especially with Driv3r & Parallel Lines. But Driv3r is where it had the most trouble with the on-foot. I'm just glad Driver 2 didn't go as far as Driv3r, then it would have been even worse, especially seeing as how it's for Psx.

2010-04-16 00:28

talking about the on foot system. Did you knew that Tanner actully could walk and run instead of only running, this option was cut from the final realease .

Driver 2 is still one of my favorite games. I don't care about the graphics.

driver 2 is true but because the 70 out of 80 cars and trucks in 2000 is like driver parallel lines if you take a car and 2006 in 78 as the paramedic will always go out in 78 Reflections Interactive did not think much This

relly good game. The on foot was good because you good switch cars. Large cities and a all four cities were differant. The game also had lots of cars and missions.

I still wish they'd release this on pc, but I think it would be uber cool if they include at least the first two games as bonus features on Driver San Francisco. They could get this baby running at 60fps, let the cars go faster than 80mph, and give us options for traffic density and draw distance. Of course, old mode would be cool too for the purists. Same goes for Driver 1. Don't modify the graphics or music, or sound effects. Also a cheat code for all cars in all cities would be awesome. I could go on.

I wouldn't even mind playing Driv3r with a higher top speed and more traffic.

I beat it once, then I formatted my memory card on accident; so I used a GameShark to finish the game a second time (Press L1+R1+L2+R2 To Complete Mission Cheat

Does anyone else notice the CGI cutscenes seem to use the same graphics engine as Driv3r's actual gameplay graphics?

lcpdcv US (52)

2012-03-21 20:50

LOL, NO.
D3's engine is based off Stuntman's engine-well-it is Stuntman's engine.
And there's no such thing as a graphics engine. :/

I beat it with my skill except the last one (when you have to chase Lenny's damaged helicopter, which I have to use cheat). Good game when you see Tanner's hand holding a weapon if you see the shadow.

I bought this game for my PSone. It´s pretty good. The only thing that bothers me is that the police will chase you even when you´re not doing anything. I have Driver 1, too, but it´s not so good because you can´t leave your car.

Great game, but some of the stages were hard as all hell. I remember passing the bomb truck stage in Havana and the Gun Man stage in Rio on pure dumb luck. The last stage was pretty easy though, once you had the correct path memorized, all you had to do was dart through it as fast as possible and reach the end before the chopper, since the course never changed.

Gamer DE (73)

2013-01-28 20:17

I´m screwed. My used PSone did´nt come with a Memory Card, so it won´t save my progress in Story mode. :/

PS1 memory cards are dirt cheap, just get one on amazon or something.

ItsaUserName EN (69)

Hell, they can be bought for mere pennies/cents in gaming shops now. Many companies manufactured these cards aswell.

Which version is best ? PSX PAL or NTSC v1.1

Razor440 KP (3)

2016-04-04 21:11

This game was actually supposed to be a PS2 title. The Reflections team referred the PS2 as the PSX2, since they were planning to do this starting in mid-1999.

What do you people think of the setting the game has? I might think present day (2000 that is) because of some cars.

I always thought it was set in the 80's

Only the truck is from the 2000 and other's are 60's , 70's ,80's cars.

Don't think that this game sets in present day though. Could be mid 80's or early 90's.

Aginnon CZ (3)

2016-08-17 14:50

But in my eyes, with the Yahoo! Games bilboard in Las Vegas, Diesel and Mountain Dew adverts, it seems to be 2000 aside from the cars. and even the helicopter seen in the final mission.

sajmon14 PL (234)

2016-08-17 16:40

It's just developers mistakes. It's impossible to recreate games from those times properly. The game was set in 70's or 80's I dont remember. And those billboards are just adverts so the developers received more money from other companies etc. Same thing happens in Driv3r
