    My son was watching some footage of this on Playr this morning. It looked…. terrible.

    Edit: That in itself doesn’t look too bad, though. The world looks kind of nice and it’s all very smooth. The single-player stuff from the TV looked corny as hell – there were big talking heads in the corners of the screen while you were driving along having a conversation, proper cringeworthy stuff.

    It’s not reminding me of the original Driver series in 1 bit. And ripping off BLUR? Very original Ubisoft. -.-

    The interface “effects” make this look bad, but I can see the fun factor.

    Driver isn’t Driver anymore.

    The essence of what made Driver special back in those hallowed PSOne/PC days, has long since been folded into the GTA franchise pretty much.

    Good god – the new Brothers In Arms just looks…reprehensible.

    Errr – I quite like the look of that. What I liked about Driver – and other Reflections driving games (in particular Destruction Derby 1) – was the control you had over the cars and they way you could make them move. I think that is still there. That they are doing quite a lot with the MP is a good thing – quite like the sound and look of a lot of it. Not really getting much of a Blur vibe beyond the arcadey style power-ups. Looks more Burnout to me.

    Oh and split screen multiplayer in an open worldy type game – but that’s not possible, at all, in the slightest, even if you put restrictions on it … is it Criterion? ;)

    @5 Indeed. This has lag-fest written all over it.

    I dont see any resemblance to Blur apart from the fact its a racing game. It certainly doesnt handle like Blur or have similar track layout or the focus on powerups.

    Multiplayer modes look quite interesting. Could be good.
