Driver was released in 1999 but I was unfortunately only introduced to it in the early 2000’s. The thing I remember the most about the game is the feeling of freedom and rebellion. Driver puts the player in the shoes of an undercover cop known as John Tanner. It is up to Tanner to take on the crime bosses by going undercover as a driver and showing off his incredible driving skills.
The game takes place across four cities namely Los Angeles, Miami, New York and San Francisco. Each city allows the player to drive a different car. Although I felt that each car I took for a spin felt exactly the same. Rest assured though, this did not reduce the fun in any way. The games setting feels and sounds as if its straight out of a 1960’s or 1970’s film especially with the car designs, character clothing and speech as well as the jazzy feel to the music within the game.
