You are Tanner, an undercover cop whose mission is to topple the Los Angeles Mafia. For the first time on mobile, ride through a huge 3D city and dive right into the heart of even more explosive action thanks to the new 3D view, just like in console games. Get ready for ultra-risky missions on foot and by car in the heart of Los Angeles, where you'll infiltrate gangs, protect informants, and chase bank robbers at breakneck speeds in hellish road pursuits worthy of the greatest Hollywood blockbusters! Tanner, get ready to do whatever it takes to protect your cover and bring down the big fishes of the City of Angels.
The game also features:
â€¢ New 3D gameplay with a console-game feel, hurling the player into the heart of the action.
â€¢ Explosive storyline offering more than 30 missions on foot or in cars.
â€¢ Total freedom of movement in a gigantic 3D city (4 neighborhoods).
â€¢ Ultra-realistic driving sensations, thanks to the 3D view simulating a camera placed behind the car.
â€¢ Two shooting systems: Free aim for missions on foot and automatic aim for missions by car.
â€¢ Lots of possibilities for stunts: explosions, car crashes, dizzying jumps, and much more.
In Undercover mode you start off as tanner a former racecar driver who is now working with the police. The game is set in the city of Los Angeles in the year 2008. The story structure wasnâ€™t as exciting as I hoped but there are still a lot of fun things you can do in this game. Anyways itâ€™s more exciting than any other mobile game on the market because of its new form of mobile graphics and gameplay.
Just like the previous driver games â€œDriverâ€, â€œDriver 2â€ and â€œDriver 3â€ you have the ability to â€œtake a rideâ€, â€œPursuitâ€, â€œGetawayâ€ and a few other mini games which youâ€™ll find out as you play through undercover mode. When you start up the game for the first time youâ€™ll be unable to try the mini-games however the more you progression you make in Undercover mode the more mini-games are available to you, for example I had to finish the first training mission to unlock the training mission and I had to finish the mission after that to gain access to another mini-game which I believe was â€œTake A Rideâ€.
When Glu ran the mobile series the average rating for both Driver: 3 Mobile and Driver: Vegas reached a dazzling 9/10 in a majority of the reviews and for a 2d game thatâ€™s pretty good. Iâ€™m just trying to imagine how good Driver: LA Undercover will do, I guess itâ€™ll be the master of all mobile games.
Throughout this preview of Driver: LA Undercover I havenâ€™t talked to you about the cons most probably because itâ€™s an amazing little mobile game and there isnâ€™t much bad you could say about it because mobile devices arenâ€™t really all that good for games any rate but in the future theyâ€™ll amaze everyone when they start coming jam packed with more ram and video ram. Currently the processors are pretty good since my mobile even has a 224Mhz processor which is almost as fast as PSPâ€™s 300Mhz Processor but Nokia and many other mobile manufactures are starting to focus on mobile gaming which will improve the future of mobile gaming as well as the future of driver mobile games.
However if I were to go into detail about the cons Iâ€™d mention the horrible draw distance and the strange collisions just like the Gameboy Advance version of Driver 3 and Driver 2 where you can sort of half go through a car. But for a mobile game this game is extraordinary.
I also noticed that the game has slight similarities to Gameloftâ€™s â€œAsphalt 3: Street Rulesâ€ but Driver: LA Undercover contains the most 3D elements and of course the ability to get out of the car and start shooting at things as well as being able to shoot out the window. Iâ€™ve never seen this in any mobile game and Iâ€™m sure that â€œDriver: LA Undercoverâ€ will defiantly turn out to be a huge success as well as many of Gamelofts other mobile games.
And a urgent notice out to those people who havenâ€™t purchased â€œDRIV3Râ€ or â€œDriver: Vegasâ€ on their mobile phones they better purchase the game real fast because all the older mobile driver games have been erased from mobile video game providers so act fast if you still want these games.
If you missed out itâ€™s not the end of the world it is still always possible to get your hands on a copy and if you canâ€™t just get Driver: LA Undercover in either its 2D or 3D version. I havenâ€™t recently herd much of the 2D version Iâ€™m not even sure if they have even created it yet. But hopefully options will be available ensuring compatibility for most mobile phones.
To wrap things up, havenâ€™t you noticed that driverâ€™s mobile games seem to be doing better than the console and PC versions of the series? At least the media like some of the mobile versions of the game.
We can expect "Driver: LA Undercover" will be officially released on June 29th around the same date as Driver: Parallel Lines on Wii and PC. However the game will be released worldwide on this date.
