I have much, much more playtime on the PS3 version. I can't notice any difference other than 60 fps and slightly better visuals on PC.

Very good driving game, plenty of variety in both things to do and vehicles. Imagine driving scenes from classic movies made into a game. It looks good, it runs good, it's reasonably priced.

Vehicle physics are some of the most satisfying in my opinion. Crashes are kind of boring, but other than that, it's one of the few games personally that I can enjoy just driving around without doing anything else. Physics are more arcade than simulation, with an emphasis on stunts and drifts.

Visually great, very pleasing aesthetic and a good representation of San Francisco.

Uplay is a minor annoyance, once you start the game you can forget it exists.

Story works, it's charming but not great. Good characters, meh storyline.

dis gud gaem 9/10

Ubisoft doesn't support this game, theres a bug related to the Key you buy here on Steam.
and activate on Uplay. After a time, you can't use Multiplayer anymore, on any computer,
with every other key it works out properly.
Only solution is make Ubisoft change the key in your Uplay account, but they don't even answer on any support contact options.
Afterall it's a great game, singleplayer is great, but with that creators or better said people getting the
money you pay, it's NOT WORTH A CENT.
Should Ubisoft ever react to my support-questions, I'll renew this review.

Ubisoft gibt keinen Support für dieses Spiel, es gibt einen Fehler im Zusammenhang mit dem Produktschlüssel, welcher hier auf Steam erworben- und dann auf Uplay aktiviert- und mit dem Konto verknüpft wird. Nach einer Zeit funktioniert der Mehrspieler nicht mehr, das Spiel friert generell ein, egal auf welchem Computer, solange der Uplay Account mit jenem Produktschlüssel genutzt wird. Mit jedem anderen Produktschlüssel, welcher nicht betroffen ist, klappt es generell. Das Problem ist bekannt, auch bei Ubisoft (seit womöglich Jahren!!!) Die einzige Lösung: Durch Ubisoft den mit dem Account verknüpften Driver: San Fransisco Produktschlüssel austauschen zu lassen. Diese Antworten aber seit Ewigkeiten nicht auf jegdliche von ihnen einräumte Support-Möglichkeiten. Der Steam-Support verweist nur auf eben diesen. (Was sollten sie auch sonst tun?)
Es ist immer noch ein sehr schönes Rennspiel mit einer guten Kampagne und einer mehr oder weniger stimmigen Story,
wer nur auf die Nutzung des Einzelspieler aus ist kann hier sicherlich Spaß haben, jedoch ist es mit dem Wissen an welche Leute jenes gezahlte Geld geht und welche Gegenleistung man dafür erhält, meiner Ansicht nach KEINEN CENT WERT!
Sollte Ubisoft jemals reagieren, werde ich dieses Review aktualisieren.

I enjoy playing Driver San Francisco with the range of cars and challenges that comes with it. The cars are all different and have a slightly different feel to them. I have played this game now for quite a while; as I do with many games- I sitll enjoy it to the present day.

Driving system are realistic and every cars have a different feeling
Every car in the game (include civilian) have official brand and name not just a random car with random name
cars. lot of em
short story but enjoyable
Nice graphic
Shifting between cars are ridiculous
Epic drifting if you can control your steering
civilian have a super power to dodge every car

Shifting = Can't get out of the car, you can change cars with shitfting only
Sometimes the game will not run

i reccomend to get this game in sale and i reccomend this game if you like car games/racing games...
be aware that this game will not always work and occasionaly crash and multiplayer are dead
