First of all, there are peds in the game...check out some of the trailers on the site (www.driv3r.com) and you'll see them... second of all this game has some of the best physics of any action/driving game including GTA...the screens of the driving footage and crashes are phenonmenal...third, i agree with IrieCat, this is a game...so in any general sense, all games are sort of pointless... but then again the general point of a game is to enjoy it and there's nothing pointless about that.

I don't get it..the game is not pointless..i mean seriously..its a freaking game...the point is to drive around and complete missions....
I think it will be nice..and I don't get the harping on the older Drivers..i mean, its a new one and from the screen shots that I have seen the graphics look pretty impressive.

wH4 GiV3S ?

The game is pointless, why bother escaping police if there is no escape? Why bother driving around if gfx sux and psyhics bl0w?d What's the point of the city if there are no pedestrians?

This game has always sucked hard, imo!
Honestly, the animation was subpar in both installments, the physics were sour, with extreme elastic action from car impacts and shitty graphics destroying any chance the game had of creating, atmosphere.
Overall, I felt Driver was a horrible game and am sickened to see that it has sold 12 copies, let alone 12 million!
Just goes to show, people have no taste.

They're obviously saving Driv4r for the next add-on full game.

If I were you, I'd be running to register that domain name now...

If all those already have high expectations, then what do the mark3ting t3am need to do? ... other than convince people that 'Driv3r' isn't dumb as a name? I'd suggest giving up now on that one.
