I have to admit, I have a love-hate relationship with the Forza franchise. From a technical stand point, every game they have produced has been masterfully crafted and polished. The driving physics, the graphics, the realism have all been spot on in my opinion. However, in saying that, there’s always a voice in the back of my head telling me otherwise. The problem Forza has involves the entire franchise and the formula it seems to have. And to be honest, it makes me worry for the future.
Driver: San Francisco is one of the all-time great video games of the 21st century. Recently I was reminded of that when I was flicking through my subscriptions on YouTube, and found a video of someone playing it for the first time (I’ll put a link at the bottom of this post to the video that creator ‘Bourne’ has made, just if anyone wants to watch it). On viewing said video, I was reminded of how great this game was. I almost forgot about how many cool cars are in this game, or how much I loved the over-the-top fun driving physics, and so on. Not to mentioned the shift mechanic that allows for some good old-fashioned carnage. Trust me when I say Driver is one of a kind.
