The one major gripe I have about video games are time limits. I get pretty frustrated with having to complete certain tasks in a given time limit. It's okay now and then when it's actually possible to do so after a certain amount of tries...especially when you're given enough time. But this Driver game is loaded with time limits which made me finally give up on the game and send it back. The one mission I just couldn't complete in time was driving 4 stolen cars onto the trucks marked on the map. I only managed to get 2 cars onto their trucks and always ran out of time when going for the third car. And because of this, I wasn't able to progress in the story. If Ubisoft gave me 5 more minutes to complete this particular mission, I could have pulled it off.
So if you don't like time limits....countdown clocks on the side of your screen, then stay away from this game !!
Can't understand those gamers who gave this game a high rating ?!

I would just like to say that this game was awesome and worth buying. I rate this game a 10. At first I didnt like that there was so much traffic on the game, but you just have to learn how to maneuver the cars and each car is different. Please come out with a second one. Thanks gamefly I will be renting more from you. Glad to be a member. Collin

Hi everybody Let’s get to it. The game is short! How short? I managed it in 6-8 hours. The story telling is intriguing until 25-30% you can figure out what’s going on. Also the ending, I not a favorite. The car selection is huge, Porsche it changed to ruf because of EA they have they hold the rights to put them in the game also you won't see any Ferraris. Finally a cockpit view for all the cars etc. Loving it Most favorite is that you can drive buses and trucks etc. You can buy a car lot/garage where you can buy the cars you looking for. First you have to unlock them free by playing certain side missions. Good part is you unlock cars and get paid for winning. Side missions can range from be a cop and stop racers, make 1st or 2nd place in a race and many more. To increase your earning potential you have to buy car lots/ garages 10 in total the more the better. Let’s put it this way you can get 5000 credits for a mission or 50000 plus what ever you get during the missions like drift, close to a car etc. Will be added to your earnings. The game works smooth from start to finish now and then you'll notice newspaper appearing out of the blue. Also it's frustrating that you have to enlarge the map so you now the way to drive and sometimes will end up smashing into something in specially when you drive a fast car like Lamborghini. They have no waypoints, I personally like it. Beginners might find it frustrating. I didn’t try Multiplayer , they needed a code, but no worry they planned for renters they give you 2 day trial period. Remember there is language in the game the good part, you can turn it individually off. P.S Thank you and have a nice day
