ON: PS2, Xbox, PC - OUT: June (PS2, Xbox), end of year (PC)
Carrying on the action-adventure driving series, Driv3r promises to be the best yet - by far. Once more you play under-cover take-no-prisoners-cop Tanner but now you play alongside a partner, Tobias, and you'll play as him on some of the missions. Your case involves cracking a global car-stealing ring by any means possible. Yep, that works for us.
Acting and scriptwriting talent from the film industry that includes Michael Madsen (Tanner), Mickey Rourke, Ving Rhames (Tobias) and Michelle Rodriguez.
Three huge cities - Miami, Nice and Istanbul - with more than 30,000 buildings
More than 150 miles of major roads and city streets and 50 controllable vehicles - including cars, motorbikes, boats, mopeds and fully articulated 18 wheelers
Photo-realistic graphics (indoor and outdoor), destructible environments, complete destruction car models
A strong narrative fleshed out with around an hour of FMV, multiple paths to solve missions and a Film Director function (save and direct your own car chases)
The series has always promised much and Driv3r looks to be the one that can actually deliver the goods. Fingers crossed, it will.
