This game is laughably bad and does not stand the test of time here in 2009. I tried to take this game seriously, but its hard to with graphics this ugly- even on the xbox. "But this is an old game" you might say, 2005? Not really, this game looks like a Dreamcast title. Compared to games like DOA3 and Silent Hill 2 (2001) there is no excuse for this blockly, muddled mess! Even its predecessor, "DRIV3R" looked better than this. Graphics aside, this game begins hating you at mission 2 with the impossible challenge of shooting car tires. Because of its sloppy game design both I and a friend (just to make sure it wasnt just ME being retaahded) could not pass the training mission, even when DOING EXACTLY what the game tells you to do! This game is so backwards over itself it cannot even instruct you to do something correctly, and then gets upset at YOU for it. As if thats not bad enough, the AI programming must have been done by apes. So stupid I was wanted by the police, pulled over to give myself up, a cop shot at me, walked up to my door, squatted down, waited, stood up, waited, and continued to try and shoot me while standing beside my car, missing 4 shots out of 5! Way to go Reflections!
Wow, let me first say this is the first game to prompt me to write a user review. I was led to believe this game would be a Driver spin off racing game with weapons attached to the car for destructive fun. It isn't anything I expected it to be. The first five minutes of playing this game consisted of driving a low detail car around town to an objective marker. I was bored to tears within minutes. In the end, nothing in this game hasn't been seen before.
If you absolutely positively MUST have another helping of GTA inspired game play, take a serious look into renting this game. If you were tired of the GTA series after completing GtaIII, DO NOT TOUCH THIS GAME!
