And later, things get a bit odd.
Driver: San Francisco is one of the weirdest driving games ever, in the best possible way. It’s Life on Mars turned into a wheelman’s wet dream.

This keeps the story humming along, but makes the occasional spikes all the more noticeable when they do show up.
Without its shifting element, Driver: San Francisco would be enjoyable enough mediocrity, but nothing
