If you remember the first two Driver titles on the original PlayStation, you often wonder: "hey, whatever happened to the greatness of this series?"
Well, they did try to create more titles after Driver 2 on the PS1 but really, we haven't seen an official return to glory. Perhaps Ubisoft's new Driver: San Francisco will set a new quality bar, and if you're interested in finding out, you gotta check out the demo. If you've seen the new OPM, you know the date: the sample will be up on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade on August 17. This demo will let you try The Escapist mode, where you have to elude the police with a VIP passenger. Plus, you can see a new feature called Prove It, where you perform stunts and tricks during a chase; doing so nets you big benefits, supposedly. We have high hopes for the game.
Driver: San Francisco is scheduled to release on September 6, so we'll get a chance to test it out a good three weeks before it arrives.
