Driver 6 wouldn't work having Shift in it again. Shift was a major part of DSF because Tanner was in a coma. Your idea is nice, but it could technically be possible since it reminds me of Test Drive Unlimited's map screen where you could zoom waaay out and see Honolulu in its entirety. Kinda neat.Yeah thats saddest thing about DSF. They ended it in a way that would not allow shifting in a sequel. Still though, at least shifting could work in multiplayer.
Edit: On an entirely unrelated note, this seems to be my 1,300th post! Yay me!
I also think they should remake Driver 1 and 2.
