A new feature is the "Shift", which allows Tanner to shift from a car into another car and continue the mission. The Shift option is not unlimited however, so the player has to recharge the "Shift" meter by doing power slides, big jumps and driving into oncoming traffic. "Shift" must also be upgraded from time to time, so the player can shift into more distant cars. One of the inspirations for the "Shift" comes from the Google Earth. The game is also being described as a "return to the roots" to the series as the ability to get out of the car, which was introduced in Driver 2, has been removed as the developers felt that too many games have this kind of feature already and "it wasn't desirable [for us] to just copy that exact mechanic.". When the player is "Shifting", they can also engage in side-missions. Using "Shift", however, is not obligated, so the player can finish the game without Shifting into any car.

Driver: San Francisco Review

Driver has returned after years of hits and misses with HD graphics, new game mechanics, and online multiplayer. With the developers taking Driver back to its roots, back to the city where it all began and the original hero and villain. Can Driver San Francisco bring back the old fans and bring in new ones? Find out in the Review.


The story of Driver: SF follows that of John Tanner, a cop who has gone undercover before, and is considered to be the best wheelman on the force.  The story takes place shortly after the events of Driv3r (Driver 3) where Jericho, Tanners arch enemy puts a bullet in Tanners back and leaves him for dead. Tanner just released from the hospital and Jericho on his way to prison, the story begins. Jericho breaks free from his prison escort van and then hijacks it, which leads to Tanner and is partner Jones on a high speed chase straight out of the movies. After a brief car chase Tanner and Jones find themselves in a huge car crash, which leaves Tanner in the hospital suffering from a coma. This isn’t really explained very well as the game immediately picks back up with Tanner and Jones searching for Jericho, and Tanner with new special abilities. This is where the story takes a turn for the worse, Tanner gains the ability to shift into different bodies and drive their cars. When I say turn for the worse I mean it, the story goes from something that could lead to something great, and then makes a hard left into the supernatural world. At first your thinking ok this is kind of dumb, but I can get passed it, then as the story progresses it gets even more ridiculous, with Jericho having the ability also. Only to find out that Tanner was in fact in a coma and the entire story was in his head. Pretty lame excuse for the supernatural to me. Also the story is really short; it can easily be finished in less than 5 hours.
