Decent Game better than the last version. Good driving physics and gameplay. Too much Traffic and a lot of unnessesary driving from place to place. If you hate traffic this game will bug you. But I did enjoy playing the first half and the muscle cars were well done. I was not a big fan of the second half - I lost interest.
If you get stuck there are good cheats that can help you move on if you wish.
First and foremost, if your advertising something like 8 player online and mini games than you should either commit to it or change release date. To just abandon it all together is not cool. All in all DP is a beautiful game. GTA knock off? Yup. Does alright on its own but really has the feel of a modded up Pc version of GTA San Andreas. NO Flying planes and you cant jump but you can shoot from your car. Honestly, the only way this game had a chance was with that online play. Upside? If you like driving through an OK replica of NEW YORK and a pretty big map (JERSEY INCLUDED), this game aint bad at all. Same GTA mechanics and controls. The traffic is all to real. It was a joy to road rage in Manhattan.
If your a fan of the Driver series you may enjoy the driving. Get it!. If your a fan of FREE ROAM gaming like myself you may want to check it out. But I doubt if you wanna keep it long.
