What a massive letdown. I am actually glad I ended up buying this used. I had it pre-ordered since I am a fan of the Driver series, but I had to cancel my pre-order when I heard about the online pass that was being shipped with the game. I can't support anti-consumer practices, so I bought it used instead. 4 hours later, the game was over and I was so let down that I didn't even want to look at the game.

I returned it and got a full refund, since I was able to beat it in one sitting and EB Games let's you return any used game for a full refund in 7 days. I don't even know where to start. So I will just wrote my thoughts here as they occurred while playing the game.

"Wow, whoever mixed this sound was really having an off day. Crashes sound like they are happening 4 blocks over, even though they are right in front of you. Even with a 5.1 this game sounds like garbage. Why is it that I can barely hear my car for God sakes!? Gran Turismo 5 makes it feel like the car is in your living room on my theater set-up!"

"Holy crap these cars control like garbage. Seriously, even for an arcade racer this is just trash. Why do they even give you a handbrake when even hitting it slightly makes your car do 2 360's before coming to a stop. I've been playing racing games for over 20 years. Everything from Forza to Mod Nation Racers, and this has to be some of the worst racing controls I've ever had the misfortune of playing"

"Dear God this game looks like crap. This is a current gen game? No way. Why do I have the feeling this was going to be a Wii exclusive, but was decided late in development to be ported over to the PS3 and Xbox 360? There is no way this was made for the PS3 and Xbox 360 and ported down to the Wii. This is a Wii port, and an ugly one at that"

"Ya know, I can appreciate a stupid story as much as the next guy, but this takes the cake. I mean, they don't even try to make you care about any of these characters or about his Coma. Why should I care? Why should I care about this bad guy on the loose? Why should I care about anything, especially since the bargain bin voice actors don't seem to care either"

"Oh look, more missions that are lacking in any sort of variety! Yeah I love doing the same thing over and over and over and over and over again!"

"Wow, cool! A mechanic that is actually fun to use! Why did they wait 3 and a half hours to give us this awesome gameplay mechanic! Holy crap THIS is what I'm talking abo...Game Over.....Wow...a whole 4 hours huh? Where's the receipt??"
