Driver 2: Back on the Streets (named Driver 2: The Wheelman Is Back in North America) is an open world car action game released on PS1. It is a continuation of Driver from 1999. The game was created by Reflections Interactive, currently operating under the name Ubisoft Reflections.


In Driver 2: Back on the Streets, we play as Tanner, known from the first installment of the series, who, together with the detective Tobias Jones, tries to get into the ranks of criminal organizations in order to catch the dangerous criminal known as "Pink Lenny". The characters visit four cities - Chicago, Havana, Las Vegas and Rio.


Like the previous part of the series, Driver 2: Back on the Streets is an action-packed car chase game set in an open world. Players can move freely through vast areas based on famous cities, perform a series of story missions or focus on side activities, such as searching for secret cars. The main missions are focused on getting from point A to point B in the shortest possible time - we are usually chased by police officers or criminals.

the biggest novelty in this installment is to be able to leave the currently driven vehicle. Tanner can now freely move around the city on foot. Thanks to this, he can visit places inaccessible to cars or drive a new vehicle.

Technical aspects

Driver 2: Back on the Streets for PS1 offers full 3D graphics. The cities have lots of details such as characteristic buildings. The soundtrack was inspired by the music featured in films about car chases from the seventies. Each city has its own unique soundtrack.
