Not a racing game, but an actual DRIVING game. This game allows you to switch from car to car, and due to being set in an imagination allows you to do missions that are unrealistic without being stupid. While some missions are just races or chases, ableit very fun and interesting ones, the best mission are the Stunt missions. These have interesting challenges presented to you. Also with a load of cars (including a Delorean) and far too many mini missions, this game will last a while, and is very entertaining. Also, still fairly drivable without analogue steering, somehow.

This game is one my favorite racing/driving/free roam games. Its like GTA only you dont ever leave the safety of your car. Storyline is pretty creepy but its actually pretty good. Alot of cars to choose from one of the very few games were I can be in a major police with a DeLorean. This game is a blast. Graphics are great car detailing is wonderful. One of the best games I've played of this current generation.

Installs 'UPlay' DRM software that forces you to register and link your steam account. WTF!? I bought the game, I didn't buy (or was informed) about UPlay!! DO NOT BUY.

I love this game, its amazing. But I can't run this on steam, it just prompts me for a key, when I enter it, it says its already been bound to my account. So I have to run it through uplay... I hope the people who thought uplay was a good idea get kidnapped, gagged, ♥♥♥♥♥ and killed. While their families watch.

Let me put you in my position here:

So I played Driver for a while, I was liking it too, but one day I got stuck on a required mission, so I left it for a while. So one new and much more powerful PC later and I install it there. But when I decide to play it, it has to download about three Uplay patches. After all those I have to remember my Uplay account I made specifically for this game, which I did and I put it in. It starts to log me in and then... Windows notifies me that "UPlay Launcher has stopped working." So great. I WAS having fun with the game, but now it's essentially a brick sitting in my Steam library. My recommendation? I'm not sure how many people have this bug, but it's more than me. So, decide if you want to risk having a broken game, but have a pretty fun one if it works.

steam gives you the ronge ubisoft lancher you need to uninstall the one steam gives you and reinstall the right one which you need to find on the internet and after that you need to put in a ativation coad which you find by right clicking on the game in your steam library but the thing is you need to redownload it from ubisoft and that takes 3 hours to download all 7.9 gbs, and i like the game but i dont like it how i have to lanch it from the ubisoft instead of steam.

I've had this game for a while and completed it a couple of times.
Well worth a buy.

Good arcadey physics make the game really fun as well as diverse mechanics, such as the shift mechanic, which allows players to use any car they want makes the game seem as so the player is completely free within the game, great cinematics, graphics, of which I would not usually be arsed about, but in this game they are good and run on worse computers, amazing soundtrack, voice acting; one problem, the Uplay combo, but after making an account, the game basically comes on immediately.
