But of course, this game — in addition to being one that is “action” oriented — is also an unexpected fantasy. Most of it takes place in a guy’s head. Why would you want to walk or run when you can shift into any car in the entire city? There’s no need to slaughter innocent bystanders while you act in the name of justice (sure, it’s fun, but it’s not necessary here). Ubisoft — Driver: San Francisco’s makers — didn’t want to make another game that resembled the familiar (but just as agreeable) Grand Theft Auto series, so they opted to do something different; something that could technically be classified as relatively insane, but that they hoped would warrant hours upon end of white-knuckle virtual smashing enjoyment accompanied by some truly awesome graphics.
Guess what? They succeeded.
