Just texted my buddy about this. If it's good, I'll be so happy.

Driver, and driver 2 were probably my (and my friend's) favorite games back in the day. Even Driv3r was fun despite it's rather long list of flaws.

I loved the first one, it was just incredible back in the day.....an actual 3D(ish) city you could drive around in! in muscle cars! what's not to like?

I never finished driv3r......think that says it all.

Bring back the bouncy suspension from the first one and I'm in!

I don't know if he's done anything since the first Driver, or even if he's still alive, but they need to get Alistair Brimble back for the soundtrack.

I never liked the Driver games, except the replay director mode was kinda cool.
If I remember correctly, what I hated about the game. If you did anything wrong you had 4 billion cops on your ass. All I did was go through a yellow light.

I actually kinda liked that; not that it was a GTA: Goody Two Shows Edition, but that minor infractions get police attention...like in real life. And it was harder to loose cops.

ohmigodohmigodohmigodohmigod so excited :D

Seriously though, I wasted basically all of middle school on Driver, making up my own missions and wreaking havoc with cheats...I hope this will capture 1/100ths of the awesomeness of that nostalgia. Using a '73 Challenger is a good start.

Ok...almost every car on the street is a high end car....Ram SRT10, Ruf RK Spyder, Delorean DMC12, Bentley sedan, and was that a Tz2 alfa? That is kind of ridiculous....I only saw one sort of generic car throughout the whole thing.

I like that they brought back the Tanner/Jericho Story line. I always wondered what happened to tanner at the end of the third one. I guess I get to find out now.

I can't wait for this! I spent countless hours of my childhood playing the original.
