A free to play, mobile game....with speedboats. You are the cancer killing gaming, Ubisoft.

This is absolutely disgusting. Ubisoft is obviously trying to upset Driver fans - watch them kill the Driver IP off next.

Hello,


Sorry to hear you feel this way.

Yes Driver Speedboat Paradise is free-to-play, meaning that you can download and finish the game for free, if you don't enjoy it then at least it did not cost you anything to try! The game is designed to be fun for players who do not wish to pay for it and while yes, you may be able to speed up progression through the game by paying, you do not need to and the choice is left to you.

We wanted to keep the Driver IP alive and we also wanted a fresh take on the racing genre, doing this has allowed us to create a game with a storyline and a real universe players may be familiar with. Driver Speedboat Paradise shares a lot of the same themes from the previous Driver games. Our idea was to enhance the racing experience and build further upon speedboats first introduced in Driv3r.

Blah, blah, yada yada, it's obvious what you're doing - this "game" is just a last ditch effort to make money off the Driver IP before you kill it off or put it in purgatory like Prince Of Persia. And don't edit my posts you Trotskyite, I have the right to call Ubisoft that, especially after the travesties known as The Crew and Watch_Dogs. You don't like what I type? Don't read it instead of editing my messages like the Thought Police.
"a fresh take on the racing genre"........yeah, really fresh, like a freshly taken dump.

Disgusting indeed.
See I hate when a company buys the rights to a game, because Driver can't be Driver without the Edmonson brothers being in HEAVY development. Ubisoft and the new Reflections staff just can't reproduce the entire Driver feel from the old games (Driver San Francisco is an example, nice game but why choose the Driver universe if it doesn't share anything from it?) and they are even going full ****** with Speedboat Paradise. This is also clear that it's a moneygrabbing product.

Instead of making a useless spin-off, why don't fix Driver San Francisco on PC first since there are still features missing from the console versions and also random crashes in the online lobbies?

Simple. They don't CARE one bit about the Driver franchise.

Please Ubisoft, This has nothing to do with DRIVER.
Just that Tanner appears there doesnt make this game DRIVER. This is not a DRIVER game,has absolutely nothing to do with it. Thats an insult to the Franchise.

Well, I don't agree with them. While I understand where they are coming from, I still appreciate the effort and keeping Driver alive like you said. Plus, I think it looks fun! That is all... well, besides hoping something comes to consoles as well. PSN maybe?

They are keeping it alive but in a bad way.
Reflections has done a BAD move being sold by Ubisoft. Those guys are not only ruining Driver but they won't even fix their own abominations that is Watch Dogs and AC Unity for example. Even Driver San Francisco had limitations, poor optimization (at that time) and a horrible PC port.

Why did you do that, Reflections?

Yeah, it may be on life support, but I'm glad they're doing something with it. If you'd rather have nothing than something, then fine.

I love Driver. I love every chapter, especially Driv3r.
San Francisco was a good game a good seller, licensed cars were a big improvement to the series and that's all thanks to Ubi-Soft.
And so, why we haven't heard about a new Driver fot Ps4/XOne? Are Martin and Gareth still in Ubi-Soft?
Please don't kill ths IP, spin offs (like this Speedboat or Cop Recruit) are harmless and I'm ok with that. But we need a new big Driver, just like San Francisco was. Maybe without that goofy Shift mode but some on-foot session (without guns, like Driver 2 it would be perfect).

Hope to be read by someone. Don't let a legend die, and a beloved game with many, many loyal fans. Thx.

The Edmonsons brothers left after San Francisco. Driver is dead and owned by an incompetent company.

I'm starting to get really pissed off at Ubisoft. If your not going to make a new game, then atleast sell the franchise. Remember GTA and Driver? They were rivals. We should seriously return the Driver Series to GT Interactive. I would even be okay with it being sold to Rockstar, although they were a rival to driver, atleast they put true care into their games.

Wait a second here are you guys telling me that you hate this game because its not a good 'driver' game? Will changing the name from 'DRIVER speedboat paradise' to just 'speedboat paradise' make you stop hating it and even make you love it? Because if thats the point you dont have to give a s**t about the game and just move on with your life. You might hate it but youre not the center of the world theres a lot of people out there who like this game, and some of those people dont even know what 'Driver' is. You guys hating this game is like hating need for speed no limits or hating need for speed world. You can just skip this game like I did to GTA 4 its the only game that i didnt like from the GTA series. I didnt complain about it because those are my personal thaughts like you hating the game. Stop hating and move on you guys are not the only players who play this game.

I liked the Speedboat Paradise, BUT, racing boats isn't the Focus of the franchise, we need more action in the History, another antagonist Jericho is a great antagonist, but we need another person that makes the life of Tanner the kind of Hell you won't desire to your worst enemy.

Hi! New levels will be coming in the next update, but I can't confirm a release date at the moment. You can access the Events from the main menu, by tapping the purple Events button. Hope this helps!

I wish I was this naive & blind to reality.
This was Ubisoft's last attempt to get money out of the Driver IP before they killed it off by appealing to the lowest common denominator (so called "normal" people who only use the internet for social media and play games on their phone) with a F2P mobile game with transactions, end of.

How much is Ubisoft paying you to shill this "game"?
"You peeps need to chill there's more to life than a game on your phone !"
Do you even know what the "Driver series" is, you NORP?
Driver:You Are The Wheelman, Driver 2, Driv3r, Driver:Parallel Lines, Driver San Francisco (to a lesser degree) - not this tripe.

You spoiled , entitled kids need to reflect on your attitude. Just spend more time playing a game you love rather than demand everybody please you with their free games. I love this game on my tablet I just wish there were some hints ,tips , rules for game play. I have one star I can't get because I don't know how to get 14 seconds nitro...any suggestion's?

OK, Im kind of late to the Driver Paradise party only having just started playing this now but the game is great. True it feels much more like burnout at sea game than a Driver game but it's a free to play game that you don't need to play if you're not into it, if you don't like it then you've spent nothing so get a hold of yourself. It's clearly a spin off rather than the next game in the series, so I really don't get the unhinged posts on this site. It's a good free game that you can get through on skill only; what's not to like.

2 more casual dudebros who have never touched an actual Driver game who registered just to be paid to shill this tripe. How surprising.
They don't even attempt to hide it, their spelling, grammar and mannerisms just scream shill.
