A Driver: San Francisco walkthrough has emerged from E3, showing four minutes of kind-of sort-of mostly gameplay footage from Ubisoft Reflections' brum-brum sequel.

"What we've done... is very much go back to the roots of what made the original Driver game such a unique experience," Reflections founder Martin Edmondson explains as the comatose Tanner chases his imaginary foe through The City That Knows How.

Driver: San Francisco is due out for PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Mac in the fourth quarter of 2010. Driver: San Fran--as Frisco residents will call it--trailers have also shown Wii and Mac logos, though Ubisoft has not explicitly confirmed the platforms.

      I think it is an over reaction to players of the original throwing thier computer at the wall after loosing someone 45 minutes into a chase for the fifth time.

        Glad I'm not the only one who actually remembers the gameplay!

      First I was like... WTF... and then I was like... seriously, WTF???

      But now that Ive heard its a limtied ability which has to be charged, then it kinda makes sense I believe - think of it as a quicksave feature.

      If nothing else, it looks like it'd be fun to mess around with. Reminds me of back when I'd play Midtown Madness just to explore the city and have fun. :-)

      Just an FYI that you have to build a meter to use it so it can't be spammed.

      It's definitely a bit of a cheesy gimmick and will probably get old very fast, but then it also has a kind of spooky metaphysical aspect to it which gives a slightly poignant frisson to the action - the idea that everything we see is just a fevered hallucination inside a deluded coma-victim's brain. It brings strange, vaguely philosophical, Matrix-like overtones to the action (though I doubt that will be capitalised on).
