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!
