If there was ever one great feature in a Driver game that I always enjoyed, it was the Film Director mode. There was something great about setting up cameras and filming a replay, making for some awesome chase scenes. I used this feature extensively in Driver 3, as I was allowed to download and upload clips I, and others, have uploaded online (I owned the game on XBox, so I uploaded my videos to Live).
What’s great about this game’s is that you can do the Film Director mode at any point, rather than it automatically starting from the point you began playing. If you wanted to do a video of a police chase, you had to be creative. I often pulled up next to cops at an intersection with a red light. Light turns green and I’d smoke the tires, causing the officer to chase me. It was a lot of fun.
With the addition of movie-inspired car chases in this game, as shown above with the Bullitt-inspired chase (save for a few missing details, including the wrong year Charger and the badges on the Mustang), it’s a perfect way to use this feature. I can’t be the only one excited about this game, can I? Pick it up September 2nd in EU (and maybe AU), and September 6th in NA.
