In conclusion, Driver: San Francisco isn’t quite the all-conquering, action-paced arcade racer it could have been, but there’s no denying that its ‘Shift’ mechanic makes it worth investigating for anyone who likes driving games. The narrative and lame script doesn’t in the end really matter that much when you’re racing up and down San Francisco’s undulating roads to get away from the cops. Driver: San Francisco is ultimately a cool game to play, but despite its instant pick-up-and-play appeal it hasn't quite nailed that winning chequered flag formula.

While Driver: San Francisco is a lot of fun, it isn't without its faults: Missions can get a little repetitive toward the end (particularly if you're doing all the side missions), the storyline is ludicrous, and the less said about the incredibly frustrating final boss battle the better. These issues do little to sully what is a great driving game, though. A wealth of content, fast cars, and the inspired shift mechanic mean you're always kept in the thick of action-packed, over-the-top driving missions that are a thrill to play.

Driver: San Francisco is a game that is full of surprises. Even when you know that the entire game takes place with Tanner in a coma, the game still manages to surprise you with how the story is handled. The driving mechanics which at first seem like they will be incredibly annoying turn out to be fun and thrilling. The shift ability plays a bigger role in strategy than initially thought and multiplayer contains old-fashioned game modes with a new twist.
