With crime lord Charles Jericho now on the loose, San Francisco faces a terrible threat. Only one man can stand against him.

Test your driving skills with 20 challenging races and 80 “dares” spread all across the city. Listen to over 60 music tracks with songs from famous artists, including the theme from the original Driver.
DRIVER: San Francisco plays like GTA for kids: instead of beeing a gangster or a thug, you're an undercover cop trying to stop a big bad criminal from a hospital bed by shifting (i.e. possessing any driver in town). This allows you to become uncoming traffic to stop or slow down opponents by crashing into them and a few other cool things but the game is only about driving so the missions have to end when you leave the car leaving you unsatisfied most of the time. The college kid races and police takedowns are some of the highlights of the adventure but the game story mode quickly becomes repetitive and the plot is so simple it doesn't really need the 'previously on' each time you start a new chapter. The dares and random challenges around the rather monotonous San Fran map are actually more fun and the soundtrack is pretty impressive. But the chit-chat in the car is more convetionnal and less interesting than the radio chatter in GTA. All in all this made me want to play GTA 4 and I wonder why it hasn't been ported to the mac so far...

I thought it will be more like racing or GTA but not, just drive in the city not interesting

I've already played this game once on Windows and it was great. I almost finished it 100% and I really enjoyed this new chapter. You won't regret buying this game if you are a fan of the Driver series.
Congratulations to the developers for the first person view, it is really cool and engaging!
