I'm glad I've inspired someone to at least contemplate Saboteur, it's a quality game imo!
Driver's not really a racing game, you play the role of a cop and you go through some very interesting missions, doing different types of driving (and crashing), which kept me from getting bored of it. There are a couple of different ways to complete the same mission, which I thought kept it refreshing. You could always try the demo or have a look at gameplay on Youtube, to see if you think it's worth the purchase.. The one thing it's missing imo is motorbikes (and maybe guns =P ), but I'd imagine that'll be added via DLC add-ons later (since they were in Driv3r). FWIW, it pisses all over GT5 (although I think it's a different type of game, not just lap after lap).
I know what you mean about MW2, I loved it but BO is just a rehash of the same thing, and with MW3 + BF3 coming soon, you're prolly right to skip it. However, the bots are what made me love it! (..although if you're on 3.72 then what's the point in bots)
