With all of the comic book news lately, you'd think Comic-Con was right around the ... oh. Well, Ubisoft has another comic book based on one of its properties ready to roll out at this week's event, this one based on the upcoming Driver: San Francisco. Unlike its Assassin's Creed book, which will j...

Finally, a video game exec who isn't afraid to say the truth for once. Games Radar is quoting Atari's sales and marketing vice president, Nique Fajors, as saying at a company press event that the Driv3r franchise was nothing more than "a half-baked product that was pushed out the door for revenue re...

Driver 3, or Driv3r as the hip young cats are calling it, was a bit of a debacle. The scandal over reviews being biased so exclusives could be claimed. The mediocre quality of the game. In short, it was a bit of a dogs breakfast. Not content to leave a rotting lemon where it lay, Infograme... Sorry...

Worthplaying has posted an editorial that blasts Atari for some questionable business practices. Apparently, word has gotten out that DRIV3R is about as fun as a papercut; and Atari has been working overtime to keep the word on the street from reaching consumers' ears. The opinion piece claims that...

That sure didn't take long. The game came out yesterday to high hopes and higher ad buys. Today DRIV3R is torn a new one. Gamepsot gives the title a mediocre (at best) score and proceeds to dissect the experience until it's just bloody pieces on the floor. The review attacks the AI, the bugs and th...

Since Driv3r has been released to the masses you get one last chance to revel in the previews. The game certainly has the kind of voice talent that would make a great film, but how much that can add to the game's fun is questionable. You can have all the high-quality cutscenes and B-list actors you...

If you liked Grand Theft Auto 3 and GTA: Vice City then you might want to give this one a look. The last Driver game was a bit on the tough side and apparently Atari isn't going to let up in the sequel. With realistic physics and a bunch of mini-games thrown in, DRIV3R might be just the game to tide...
