    the most important question: how does the handling feel?

    Driver 1, the game that made its name, has the best car handling ever. no, it's not realistic, but it was most fun you'll ever have with a car game. do the wheel cover still fly off as you corner? is the wheelspin button still there?

    I foresee that this game will get a review of 65%.

    Any other takers?

    I take you guys aren't yet aware of the news that the PC vesion of D:SF will have the full UbiDRM, and that apparantly the console versions will have gubbins that prevent second hand sales, according to Ubi's own Twitter announcements. Shame, I was intrigued enough to be interested; I loved the first game.

    I remember the first couple of games, I thought they sucked. I will have to wait and see how this turns out.

    I loved the first Driver. It was one of the best driving games I ever played. It was sort of like Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, except the cop chases were more fun and it took place on city streets. It was challenging to. I remember the test to see if you could be a getaway driver at the beginning of the story required you to spend a good 30 minutes to an hour driving around in a parking garage while the game judged you on your turning and braking skills :p

    Then the second game came along and introduced the "on foot" mode, along with a bunch of running around (instead of driving!?!), tacked on hand to hand combat for some reason, and overall became one of the most disappointing sequels I've ever played. The third one was even worse.

    This preview brought back old memories, but unless they went back to square one, I don't have high hopes.

    Used to play tag on driver 2 splitscreen with my sister on the ps1. Has this got anything to do with the original driver series other than the name.

    I have very fond memories of the first PS1 game. The way the cars crunched, cops tried to block you in, hubcaps went flying and the general sense of speed and handling to the cars had really made it amazing to just drive around in the free play modes. The story mode wasn't half bad either.

    the tag mode was originally seen in midnight club 2, though it was a bomb and not a flag, but none the less im eagerly awaiting driver SF.

    Word - The original Driver was frikkin awesome. God that makes me wish my PS1 and PS2 weren't both dead....saw the preorder announcement for this on Steam a while back. Seemed intriguing then...but UbiDRM? Can't do it...I won't spend a dime on Ubisoft games until they realize their DRM systems suck hard. They won't stop until the point gets across that the DRM is worse than the piracy. Once they start losing more money over their draconian DRM than they perceive they're losing to piracy, maybe they'll wise up. But who am I kidding? Now, any bad quarter they have is the pirates' fault, right? It couldn't be because they've pissed off every gamer on the planet by now.
