Driver: You Are The Wheelman (Sony PlayStation, 1999)

  • $1100

In Driver, players assume the role of a former stock car racer named Tanner who goes undercover for the NYPD as a getaway driver to infiltrate a syndicate's criminal activities. You'll race through the streets of 1970s Miami, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York City, accepting missions you've chosen off of your answering machine. Once on the road, listen to some funky '70s tunes as you weave your way through other cars, dodge pedestrians, and evade the cops who want nothing more than to see you in jail. Throughout the course of each mission, you must also be careful not to damage your car to the extent that it will no longer function. At the same time, the cops watch your actions closely, keeping track of the number of laws you break.

Your mobility on the road is literally unrestricted, allowing you to drive with the traffic just as easily as you can against it. And keep your eye on those working traffic lights. Getting T-boned by another car at an intersection can mean bad news to the status of your vehicle.

In order to be accepted as a driver, you must first prove your skills in an "interview" held within the confines of a parking garage. In this test, you have 60 seconds in which to perform nine maneuvers, ranging from the ease of simply applying your handbrake to the difficulty of executing a reverse-180.

Apart from the main storyline, Driver provides are nine other mini-games to test your driving skills. Objectives involve evading cops, ramming other cars or racing your way through the four cities to see if you can eclipse the given time limit. At any time, you have the power to "tape" your performance from a variety of adjustable angles and then view the results.

Upon its initial release, Driver was met with very positive feedback and critical acclaim. The PlayStation version received "favorable" reviews according to video game review aggregator Metacritic.
