does the PC version look any better than the PS2.....how do you control firing/aiming

The ps2 version of driv3r dosen't look that great, infact it looks overpixelated and the texture quality doesn't seem the greatest and contains very few graphical glitches.

The xbox version of the game looks a lot better than the ps2 version using higher res textures and contains a higher resolution.

The pc version contains all that quality of the xbox version with better quality depending on your system and driv3r's configiration.

With a good computer system and all settings turned up high, the quality look REALLY awsome! But you have to have a good pc (so it'll look a lot better than any other platform)!

So yeah, it looks much greater than the ps2 version but unfortuanatly there are a few more graphical glitches. But higher quality feels stunning compared to other versions!

I'm planning to make a visual comparsion whenever I spend a lot more time on the DriverWiki but until then you can check out this video it isn't on the highest setting as my pc couldn't handle them but it'll give you a good idea of the quality differences.

Here are some PS2 gameplay videos

and here is a high quality pc video

and the controlling and fighting by defult isn't that great, it's pretty stiff and annoying but with some changes within the control settings it's really easy to use.

It's more third person shooter style gameplay while on-foot, so i've always found on-foot action better on PC.

But in the end this is a driving game and is in no way a shooter, so you'll find these segments arn't the greatest.

I may also point out you cannot achually attack someone without a weapon. Weapons where created mainly for the purpose of firing at vehicles, however some missions have you killing people but it's not that occassional.

I hope this answers your question http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
btw: are you planning on buying driv3r, or are you just curious?

and there is a demo avaliable, achually I think you'll find the purcahsed version a million times better than the demo because the demo contains very limited actions.

So here is the official demo (700meg)

and if you don't have 700meg to use I created a highly compressed version which contains many removed elements off the offical demo; this includes removed music, fmv's, videos and your mainly left with major gameplay elements.

So here is the unofficial highly compressed demo with less features (94MB)


please note this version only contains Nice (and dosen't contain Istanbul)

So hopefully this helped your question!

Yes you helped me alot.....i am probobly gettin it.....im not gettin D:PL cuz i dont like gangzta gta **** and thats what driver is turning into...driver and driver 2 are the best....is there a Driver 2 for PC?

Unfortuanatly Driver 2, was only released for PS1 and GBA.

Therfor there is no pc version, you can however buy the ps1 version and emulate it on your pc using an emulator. But it is a lot of fooling around and may not work properly on most computers.


and yeah I'd have to agree but dissagree about driver moving onto a freeform type genre like GTA.

The series still focuses on driving fairly well with outstanding car physics and fairly good vehicle based missions. To keep in tandem with a storyline there is about 15% on-foot in both driv3r and parallel lines. I would say it's a little overdone, in some missions in driv3r and parallel lines you will find yourself killing over 25 people in one level which really reminds myself of gta but only for those few missions where that occurs other than that it really sets self apart series similar to gta.

A wish I would like to see in future driver games is that if your in a mission to kill someone you only have to kill a couple of people not a couple hundred because it feels unrealistic gta style and it may give players more to do but I think it really dosen't help the games reputation.

(and of course killing those couple of people dosen't mean putting a million bullets in them until they die, more like a couple of shots and there dead. Realisticly http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif )

so it's still proably worth getting driver: parallel lines, but maybe you'd consider watching a few gameplay videos.


and some of my faviourites showing some interesting car physics

and some of my PC gameplay videos http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

and note that the game isn't as easy as I play it, I just recorded them at that time because recording dosen't slow down my pc when not as much is happening! (Just thought I'd point that out) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

anyways, this might give you some different thoughts on Driver: Parallel Lines.

Unfortuanatly there isn't a driver: parallel lines demo, but the videos show a fair bit!
