Game description: The Wheelman returns in his most dangerous adventure yet--an interactive driving epic on par with the most intense Hollywood action blockbusters. Undertake a wide variety of high-speed vehicle-based missions and go deeper undercover than ever before. The game features over 70 playable vehicles, including cars, bikes, artics, and busses, and eight different weapons, ranging from handguns and machine guns to grenade launchers. Driver 3 provides gamers with all new gameplay possibilities, replayability, and a whole new driving experience.
DRIV3R brings back features from Driver 2 and adds the ability to ride motorcycles and boats, use weapons, swim, climb ladders, and enter certain buildings among other things, controlling more than one character, as well as entering and exiting cars.

Too many to count. Completely screwed graphics in gsdx hardware mode. Looks better in software mode, but missing all sorts of detail (colors, texture detail, etc..). Able to see what is going on enough to be TECHNICALLY playable, but not playable on an enjoyable level.

1.5.0-dev-975 GSdx DX11 (Hardware) ? DX11 (Hardware) runs smooth (stable 58-60FPS) but has a lot of graphic bugs. Software mode looks much better but has many bugs too. (nearly playable 40-60FPS). scorpionking95

1.5.0-dev-1218 GSdx (Software) Default OpenGL(Hardware) looks decent except for the car texture, but runs very slowly(20fps). Direct3D (Hardware) modes run smoothly when CRC Hack Level is set to "Full (Safest)", but look horrible. Software mode runs quite smooth and looks good, with VU Cycle Stealing speedhack set to 2 even better, but still has dips in performance. You can't complete second mission because of a bug in the (police) AI. FlatOut
