In 1999 it was Driver, in 2000 it was Driver 2. Fans of those two games are surely familiar with Reflections Interactive, developers who seem to specialize in wrecking all types of vehicles. With titles such as Destruction Derby, Destruction Derby 2, Stuntman and the previous two Driver games, of course, you know that they have got car damage and mayhem down to an art.
Having sold over 12 million copies worldwide, the Driver series is as big as games come and even though Driver 2 never received the critical acclaim that the original enjoyed, it still became a favorite with gamers.
True to the current trend which wants games to resemble large-scale Hollywood productions, Driv3r or Driver 3, has a movie actor cast, a licensed soundtrack, three immense wide-open city environments: Miami, Florida; Nice, France; and Istanbul, Turkey and Ridley Scott's company producing short movie like teasers.
Developed by Reflections Interactive and published by Atari, Driv3r is expected in June 2004 for XBox and PS2 with a PC version being released some time after that.
