1999, PlayStation

Putting you in the stringback driving gloves of an undercover cop working as a “wheelman” for a crime syndicate, Driver feels a lot like a GTA game with the on-foot sections removed and the free-roaming replaced with a linear mission structure. The driving physics are fantastic, the four open world cities (Miami, San Francisco, LA and New York) are huge, and you can replay your missions from a variety of cool camera angles.
