"There's always a canal". Those were my first thoughts upon seeing the trailer for Ubisoft's Driver: Speedboat Paradise which features a story that involves "You: The Speedboat Rising Star" and your pals taking on the "Speedboat Mafia". Honestly, what's not to love?
While we clearly pick and choose our mobile release news here on AusGamers, it was hard to ignore the premise here, though we are talking about the Driver series, so... you know.
Set in the Driver universe, criminals, car thieves and high-powered individuals all around the globe race to collect grandiose prizes. Players step into the role of a young and reckless racer on a quest for notoriety and money in the underground powerboat racing world who gets contacted by legendary cop John Tanner to help bring down the Mafia. As players assist John Tanner in taking down the infamous criminal Mike Lazarus, they will discover a dark and deadly world amid the glitz, glamour, fame and fortune.
