What's wrong people?
I have read a lot of reviews and they slot into four categories:
Both of the above
I have had no problems so far with this game, admittedly it took half an hour to download but I was patient. I prefer the d-pad to the virtual stick or the accelerometer. I read complaints about the handbrake at the same side as the steering but I found you can do a handbrake turn with the normal brake. As for the police I have three words, THEY ARE STUPID! I also read complaints of people going under the limit but still being found and chased. I have a solution to check whether they will chase you or not, if they have a tiny triangle in front of them they won't chase you provided you don't smash any thing or go over the limit, if they have a slightly bigger triangle they will no matter what happens. I would like to see a rear view mirror in the next update, apart from that 5 stars from me, even if it was £5 I would get it so GET IT NOW!!!!!
The controls are fine
The accelerometer steering is much as the old dual shock controls were; this is as controllable as the original. You often feel like you're struggling to control the vehicle when things pile up because that's the situation the game is simulating. That said, sensitivity options would be a welcome addition.
My main issue with the controls, which applies to a lot of other titles too, is that the buttons are tiny and it isn't obvious when your finger slips off them. If I put my finger on the accelerator, subsequently keep my finger on the screen but over the course of a couple of minutes it happens to shift two pixels upwards, is it more likely that I intended to release the accelerator or that, now unable to see the accelerator graphic, my finger has slipped a tiny bit? Is it more likely that users are going to want to be able to slide their finger from one button to another without taking it off the screen or that they're going to press the finger where the button is, then just keep it on the screen for as long as they want that control pressed?
One of the best games
I like the idea how gameloft have converted the ps1 version of drive into an iPod comparable version with re-renderd graphics and textures of this game so you can see better. Also, the predestrian charactors have been re- renderd so they don't look like a square blob. All the videos are original and the missions are really similar and some are the same to the original game. The physics of the animated objects have been updated from the original. The only problem of this game though is that the controls on the joystick mode is too insensative. All together I recomend you to buy this app (especially if you loved the old driver games) because it is cheap for the quantity and quality of this game on the iPod. This app will defently boost the iPods repatation as a portable games sysytem. Hopefuly the iPod will beat all of the dedicated portable games console because of it's compatabiliy, light whieght and popularity and choice of games. This game 10/10 for the iPod so far.
