Okay guys, take a look at this. To everyone that owns Driv3r and VC, you probably already know this. To the rest of us, (including me), who just found this out, read on. In Driv3r there's a number of sweet talkin Mother Fucks who call themselves Timmy Vercelli. These moron's seem to think that they can run around, and kill whoever they like. Well, we all know what they're trying to pull. Timmy Vercelli? Come on, howabout Tommy Vercetti? Sound familiar? Well, I just found out, (I just bought Driv3r), and let me tell you this. I'm royally fucked off. The guys at Atari think they can steal from Rockstar?

No.

Also, get a look at the cars! They have practically all of the same cars, and a little bit more then in Vice City! I mean get a variety people! I wouldn't have minded seeing a Ferrari F40 instead of another shithouse Infernus! Howabout a Pontiac GTO instead of the crappy Trans Am ripoff Phoenix! And take a close look at the fucking Mercedes Junkers in Miami? Who are they trying to kid.... They're Admirals!

Speaking of Miami, take a drive down the beach of Miami in Driv3r. Make sure it's at night. Look familiar? In fact, there's an Exact replica of the Ocean View Hotel! Not even a single difference! I know Vice City is supposed to take place in Miami but I mean, come on people! Don't copy the fuck out of it!

Let me tell you, I'm royally pissed off. I'm taking back my copy of Driv3r tomorrow, and I'm gonna get another Vice City. I don't know why, But I think it's because I respect Rockstar, and I'd rather give them more business then Atari.

Go make some more asteroid pong games you bitches.

Oh shit. They really tried to copy things from Vice city. They failed though, wich makes it funny laugh.gif
cuda is your boi
Rockstar actually payed back, in S.A, in the mission where you go to steal MadDog's rhyme book, MadDog himself bad mouths Tanner while watching TV.

For one thing, DRIV3R failed. The makers made such a big deal about the production and shit. Vice City owns DRIV3R.

So you guy's agree with me that I should take back driv3r and get a Vice City?
Passionate Homo Sapiens Ingester
Yeah, ofc.

Remember: DRIV3R got terribele reviews, the sales bombed, the production costs were huge, and head of production for the Driver series quit (he's been there since Driver on PSOne).

Also, remember the GTAIII mission "Two-Faced Tanner" where you kill an undercover cop called Tanner...
steelman
lol thats hella funny they tried to copy GTA:VC so that the game would seem alot funner or what. R* should sue them for copyrighted materials just to piss them off
even if they don't win it will still be funny and will make sure that the driver series never comes back.
COLDOG
Sounds like they're having wars or something, LOL.

GTA3 got Driver with "Two Face Tanner" mission
Driver 3 Got Vice City with TimmyVercilli and the same location setting and cars.
San Andreas Got back with the "Pissed of with Tanner thing"

Redundant

Vice city is so much better!!

Yea, Atari even admitted that they tried to be like Grand Theft Auto, but they're not too good. I thought Atari was supposed to make good games!

Vice City is a way better game, But Driv3r has better graphics imo and the car damage owns, Both are really fun games but Driv3r is more realistic, Vice city is more fun
DETONATER

Pieface
I Like Driv3r but vice city is way better i mean vice city is mre fun but as Slimshady said Driv3r is a way mre realistic than vice city but still vice city rocks

Two-Faced Tanner was a great mission, I was pissing myself laughing when it said you'll need to blow up his car, because he won't get out.
$carface
Yeah. biggrin.gif

In the brief Asuka says something like, 'A poorly animated undercover cop, he's pretty much useless out of his car.'

Anyway, I like Driv3r, that's probably because I don't compare it to GTA, but if I had to I'd stick with Vice.

GTA is better at linking their games together with references to different characters and making a huge enviroment

and they make their own cars



also Grand Theft Auto is waayy funnier

i laughed my balls off when ricardo said"damn vcr won't eject my el burro"

and he shoots it and find out it wasn't plugged in laugh.gif
