- The anticipated PlayStation 2 title will feature an ’emotion engine’ bringing the intense emotional drama of the movie to the game with spectacular crashes flying debris and true to life car handling plus enhanced graphics capabilities (5000 polygons per car model) and speed (60 frames per second). The emotion engine brings the feeling of getting ‘into the zone’ into the game. By driving well players slowly creep toward the zone. Once in the zone players are able to push their car beyond its limits affecting a driver’s ability to maneuver around the track circuits and city streets¾reaching speeds in excess of 240 miles per hour.
- Driven will introduce two different driver focus positions within the team element of racing … blocker and racer for pole position. This means players must defend the rank of their teammate by using their car to hold off other drivers. Similar to the movie team-man ship can also determine a driver’s success.
