This week we have a video from Zane Diego about his memories of Driver 2.

Released at the turn of the century, Driver 2 was the sequel to Reflections’s groundbreaking 3D driving game for the original PlayStation. Back then, the maze of city streets and ever-changing traffic conditions in this open world game made for some of the most exciting virtual car chases possible on any platform. Well worth it for the ludicrously-fun anything-goes mode (Take a Ride) alone.

Sure, it was no GTA III, but it still left a major impression on many players, as Zane explains.
