Finally the demo is out .

Atari Korea has recently released a playable demo for DRIV3R, offering a chance to try out the new action racing sequel by Reflections Interactive. This humongous demo supports English and no fewer than seven international languages, and contains the "Booby Trap" mission set in Nice as well as the "Tanner Escapes" mission situated in Istandul, complete with extensive cutscenes.

Driv3r for the PS2 was a nightmare. I would never consider buying it for the PC.

I thought they were doing an overhaul for the PC version? Everyone says the game stinks, but noone really says why. What is so bad about it?

Well imo driver 1 looked better lol. I dunno just sucks, sloppy controls, clipping, graphical glitches, pop ups all over.

If they call that an overhaul, I wouldn't want to see what they call a direct port. Sheesh.

Graphically: The game has some nice areas with good graphics. But it also has some areas which looks like Dx7. The shadows are nice, but are pretty much static. There are some nice shaders effects and a little HDR used on the sky. But then the insane amount of pop-up ruins it.

Controls: The main character feels sluggish and slow. Default controls are hideous. Vehicle control and stability is so mind numbingly infuriating. It's so bad that simple situations(turning a corner) becomes a nightmare to deal with.

Gameplay: No free roaming like the GTA games. So you're stuck to mission by mission scenarios. There are other modes of play, but they have nothing to do with the main storyline. Mostly driving around town with no objective.

Music: I didn't hear much. Although it could be because I was cursing so much from trying to chase the bad guys with cars that felt like I was driving on ice all the time.

Game Bugs: Objects dissapper in and out of site. Far away buildings have strange texture bugs. Some textures are pure white.

Is it really that bad? I enjoyed the original 'Driver'.
Will download in Background whilst taking on DOOM3 again.

must have been HARD work to make it look this bad..
My brother just played the demo, was watching a bit, also heard alot of upset yelling from his room then and then..

Apparantly, in his opinion, this is total garbage..

Yea and I tried to like the game, I played the PS2 mission mode all the way to Istanbul until one chase mission just made me scream with anger. I also put in the ammo and weapon cheats so I could do stunts and have fun in the free ride mode, which was pretty good for a few minutes at a time until the game eventually locks up on the ps2!

The PC version is even missing half of the graphical effects of the xbox version like bullet holes and specular lighting on the asphalt etc. My 6800GT cant pull the same effects as the souped up GF3!

I didn't believe that they could make this suck but they actually did. I downloaded all 700mbs of the demo. What a terrible game. So buggy, and graphics are terrible :(

It was mostly tacked on to an already horrid game. I didn't see anything that needed SM3.

Well maybe it has, just totally lacks shadercode to run in SM3.0..
