well, it is a terribly programmed game, i bet there are tons of other slipups in this shoddy game.

1. they don't have to be lesbians to be kissing. for all we know they could be perfectly straight.
2. they arent frenching, they are just regularly kissing.
3. you are way off topic, this would be better in a PM.
4. and not to sound elitist or anything, but this subject is a bit before your time. in the fall of 2003, i decided to make a sig of girls kissing. i made a couple of them, and the second one turned out to be a fiasco. in fact, it rolled into winter time and someone made me a merry christmas one (complete with Linux panties, snowflakes, and cute santa hats for the girls ;) ..sorry i forgot who made it...). it was good enough to win 3rd place in sig of the year: http://www.ngemu.com/forums/showthread.php?t=46589 . unfortunately, even though this forum has an age requirement of 13, and there are worse things on even free TV, we had some complaints about people who had their computers in full few of family and younger siblings. you see, no one forces you to watch TV shows with obscenity or sexual content. but it sucks for the people who dont want their mom or someone to see it while they browse Emuforums. and me, being respectful of people's wishes and the rules, complied with taking it off. the admins asked me politely (this was before i was a moderator btw..) to take it off and i said ok. so now the girls are back, but censored. i suppose it's a bit of my personality (the fact of the girls kissing) and a bit of humor and poking fun at some old events. people that were around back then hopefully get a kick out of it when they see it (Reichfuher already gave me the :p about it).

Sorry I was just curious...
How was Driver 2? compared to Driver? as a sequel?

Very bad.

Imagine playing the first game with compound fractures in both arms, and... uh, some kind of analogy that gets across the fact that the framerate is terrible.

Watching my brother struggle to play it was one of the hardest things I've ever done*. I gave up after about ten minutes, but he just kept on going. Broke my heart.


*this is a lie, but the game sucks

man, this game sucks. Driver 2 by itself was AWFUL. the controls sucked, the plot was terrible, not to mention the crappy FMV sequences or whatever. but adding insult to injury, Driver (which came out long before it) had better graphics and much smoother play (better framerate).

Driver2 has no redeeming value at all. it's not a crappy game where you can say, "well at least i can kill people." I am seriously embarassed to have this game on my shelf. there is no fun to be had in this game. free drive mode is ridiculous. the graphics are crap, the cars suck, the controls are soggy and slow, and there isnt much to do. you cant even run over people!

Driver2 has curvy roads. that is the only improvement over Driver1. of course, they decided they loved the curved roads soooo much they had to put them EVERYWHERE. and they are always the same. so now, none of the roads look realistic because there are curves everywhere and they are always the same, as opposed to real suburban roads which navigate semi-randomly.

man, i hate this game!

actually when it first came out. i quite enjoyed it. i had never played a game that let u drive round a city, yes of course the graphics were crap and the bugs were easy to spot, but i did find this game enjoying. But driver was MILES betta than its sequel. it had betta music, betta graphics ( i had it on pc) better everything.
Why did Atari have to bring rubbish sequels to what may have been a great series.

I liked the original Driver because you got to choose where you drove... in Driver 2 you were limited to following other cars, how boring is that!

Btw, who managed to get out of the test drive in Driver 1 without cheats? Seriously... that was just too hard and if I hadn't of whipped out my cheating device I'd still be in that carpark.

test drive? you mean the thing you have to do to start the game where you have to complete all those tasks in a minute or whatever?

Yeah, you have to drive around and do a number of stunts within a minute.
