Before the Android and the iPhone mobile gaming seemed a hopeless endeavor, where every game released felt like a cereal box toy facsimile of a more complete console experience. Gameloft's Android version of Driver San Francisco remembers those days all too well.
Our own Stephen Totilo called the console version of Driver San Francisco "the best game no one is talking about". and having played it briefly myself I can easily see why. The driving is exhilarating and responsive. The car shifting ability, allowing the game's hero to leave his body and possess other drivers, is a fresh new take on Grand Theft Auto. Drop those two features into a vast open world filled with jumps, steep hills, and even steeper hills, and you've got arcade driving paradise.
