North America Retail Box ArtFine-tuning the white-knuckled car chase formula of its predecessor, Driver 2 features more of the same high-speed, inner-city vehicular mayhem, and casts players once again as Tanner, a hard-boiled undercover cop who's posing as a badass getaway driver--this time, to stop an international mob war. With computer-animated cinematic sequences doing the lion's share of the storytelling, players must guide Tanner through more than 40 action-packed missions in four different city settings, this time on foot--which primarily allows Tanner to carjack other vehicles--as well as behind the wheel. While it can be of a lot of fun to play, Driver 2 is no joy ride. The missions can be quite unforgiving and require many restarts to complete, and the cops are quite determined--even at the "Easy" setting. Also, the game's coarse, choppy 3-D graphics often get in the way of things, with slowdowns disrupting the game's pace, and buildings and such popping up out of nowhere. --Joe Hon Pros: Drive like a bat out of hell in four different city settings Action now takes place on foot, as well as behind the wheel One- and two-player minigames add replay value "Film director" option lets players edit their own car-chase sequences Cons: Missions can be quite unforgiving--requiring many restarts to complete Coarse, choppy 3-D graphics make gameplay more difficult than it needs to be
