The city was again featured in Driver San Francisco. It featured 208 miles (335 kilometers) of roads (and curved roads) making it one of the largest driving environments in gaming.
Unlike the original game, Driver: San Francisco did not feature trolleys due to the limitations of the hardware in order for the game to run at 60 fps. The game also featured parts of Marin County and Alameda County.
The Wii version of Driver: San Francisco was not as expansive as the HD counterpart. It featured only the main area of San Francisco; access to the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges are blocked. The city was also smaller but more fictionalized.
Unlike its HD counterpart, the Wii version of Driver: San Francisco features the trolly system and some access to parks. The port also features a small area of Alcatraz Island the player can explore and play races on. It is accessible only after beating the game.
