Its been a very long time since the last Driver was released. Its safe to say that the last game in the series was (graphically) a little disappointing even for its time.
The latest demo available for download on the 360 showed a far superior graphics engine and some great game play (as far as you can tell from a demo).
Whilst the graphics arent mind blowing, they are much improved - comparable i think to some of the newer Need for Speed games which is not to be sniffed at. In fact, buildings and surroundings actually look better in my opinion. Its nice that the cars are going to be based upon actual manufacturers cars too.
The gameplay retains a lot of the good tyre squeeling fun with what seems to be a new twist - Tanner can shift from one body to control that of another. This means you can take control of other cars and control what they do (get in the way of the baddie you persue!?).
From the short demo the game looks set to be a lot of fun, retaining the best bits from previous Drivers we all know and love with a new look and feel that some of the old Drivers needed.
