Driver: San Francisco gameplay video

Ubisoft returns to the roots of Driver

Ubisoft has released its E3 walkthrough of newly-revealed Driver: San Fransisco.

The video demonstrates that the series is returning to its roots in both gameplay and story, kicking off with (what else?) a car-chase involving the series' well-known protagonist, Tanner.

The new game is once again drawing heavily from the classic movies such as The French Connection that inspired the original titles, says Ubisoft.

Other new features include licensed cars and a new 'shift' mechanic which is essentially ghost-jacking a car.

Driver has had a patchy past but this game looks promising, what do you guys think?
