Summary

Ubisoft Reflections has brought Hi-Def graphics and a ‘Shift’ mechanic - where players can ‘fly’ in and out of vehicles - to the beloved Driver series.

Driver San Francisco sees gamers play detective John Tanner as he takes the wheel in more than 120 fully licensed and accurately rendered vehicles in a free-roaming, sandbox environment. 

The addition of the ‘Shift’ mode enables all those licensed vehicles – from trucks to sports cars – to be experienced. Basically Tanner has been involved in a horrible car crash. It’s not all bad news though, because he gains the ability to view the city from above and then to ‘shift’ into any available vehicle. This enables the gamer to choose a faster car, to deploy non-cop vehicles against the enemy and even take control of enemy cars.

This enables the gamer, as Tanner, to pursue the mysterious figure of Jericho as he attempts to uncover the secrets of his own life.

All of this comes with 20 races and 80 “Dares” to be played as 60 music tracks – including the original Driver theme – provide a soundtrack.

There are more than 200km of urban road networks, including the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and Russian Hill environment in San Francisco, to drive through and numerous characters to interact with in single-player mode.

In Multi-player, there are nine individual modes to play through that enable you to team up with or against your real-world friends and enemies or to get high on the leaderboard with individual exploits.

The gamer’s best stunts and chases can also be recorded in Director replay mode – they can then be edited and shared online.
