*****Review on Driver 2*****
If you though that the first game was good, then you want to try out Driver 2. It is truly brilliant. How? Well in this version you can get out of the car and actually walk around the cities. There are new cities in Driver 2, Chicago, and Havana amongst them.
*****Take a Ride*****
If you take a drive around the city you can go into baseball ground. And one really good feature is that there are many secret locations and cars dotted all around the cities on the game.
There are also of course the missions to complete. These both are very challenging but very eventful and exciting.
There are improved graphics and graphics refreshing rates are also a lot better, but the sound won't blow you away(a bit like driver 1).
This is a rare type of game genre and I expect to see more like it. The only one at the moment is Grand Theft Auto 3. I have seen the demo of this and it looks groundbreaking. The graphics are superb and the big plus is that you can actually kill, injure, and do what ever you could do in the previous versions, except for this version is in the real life perspective rather than a birds eye view.
Overall, GTA3 won't be out for a few months yet so go out and buy Driver 2, nothing can touch it.
