Product Description

Driver: Parallel Lines is the next instalment of Atari`s legendary action driving game franchise. It`s the only game that offers an open, fast-paced driving action-movie experience and features an unfolding storyline of double crossing and revenge.

The first half of Driver: Parallel Lines is set in a photorealistic interpretation of New York City during the 1970`s as players take on the role of TK, a notorious 18 year-old who, free from conscience and rules, is the most sought after driver-for-hire in town.

TK gets involved with a scheming group bent on taking down one of the biggest names in the underground crime scene. As the getaway driver, TK gets double crossed and is imprisoned for 28 years.

Fast forward to 2006 and TK is older, meaner, and hell bent on settling some serious scores. He needs to call on every driving trick in his considerable repertoire to tame the over-powered road machines that 2006 presents him. After twenty-plus years in jail, it`s time to hit the streets once again.

Modify and juice up your cars before engaging in the most thrilling Hollywood-style car chases ever. With over 35 diverse missions, incredibly realistic driving physics, and a brand new story with an unforeseen twist, Driver: Parallel Lines is a must-have title for action driving fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, Driver has come back!!! 12 Mar 2006
By cc2k
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Driver has come back to its own game. We can now welcome Driver games back with Open Hands. Sure Driv3r wasn't that bad, but still not that good either. Parallel lines will bring Drivers Reputation right back up.

Firstly, The graphics. One word:Superb. Better than GTA:SA. The cars damage is great and very realistic. Bits of you car come flying off, wheels snap off thier axles etc. The sound of the car crashing is quite good as well. The graphics in the cut-scenes are.....WOW! Neraly as good as Metal Gear Solid graphics. The graphics on foot are also good and smooth.

Second, The gamplay. Also a good factor to this game. Unlike driv3r, this game now is mainly mission based in the car, like driver 2. Now this is what a Driving Mission based game is all about. Sure, you still have guns, and get out of the car, but not to the extent of GTA:SA, making it not a clone of the GTA games. The cars handling! That is great. It reminds me of Gran Turismo car handling. Diffrent cars have diffrent speeds, handling etc. Another neat feature is that you can mod your cars up, making them look good, and helping you on later missions.

Thirdly, The music. Beacuse this game goes from 1978 to 2006, the music has to change as well. In 1978 you have all the classics such as The Temptentions and Blondie, while in 2006 you have Mylo and Kaiser Chiefs. Personally I like the 1978 music better, but hey, Thats just me.

Other Factors. Things change when you come from 1978 to 2006 which is pretty neat. Also, the character voices are good and fit the mouth movement good.

Opinion. This game is a great game. It has evry aspect of what the Driver Games should have. It takes you back to the time of when Driver was the only game of its kind.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loads o' fun despite the glitches!!! 28 April 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Driver:Parallel lines is the fourth edition to the driver series and I Personally think this game easily rules over the lights of Driver 3.It doesn't beat Driver 2 or Driver 1 but if you don't own this game then you are missing out.I only gave it 4 stars overall because of the amount of glitches which it contains which of course ruins your enjoyment of it.Also,it has the ability to be able to mod cars and store them in your garage for another time, and you can also buy ammo for any guns that you may have.

There is also plenty of cheats to keep you occupied if you get bored of the missions and a strategy guide for easy game completion.Don't forget that this isn't playstation exclusive it is for xbox and for the future Wii and the PC.Last but not least this thankfully works on a PS3 with the right system update installed with still similar graphics.There is also(at least according to Amazon)Driver 5 PS3 bound for next March.All in all you should not get Driver 3 but this game instead.

Thanks for reading my review of Driver:Parallel Lines and also happy gaming folks!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars I am a big fan of the Driver Games. But.... 12 May 2006
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I am a big fan of the Driver Games. But I have only rented this one so far, and will only buy it when the prices come down.

Driv3r despite it faults (basically a few, WAY TOO HARD missions, and disappointing foot missions) was a game I loved despite the problems, it had three beautifully done city's. Even if Istanbul was strangely boring to drive in. As with all the Driver games, I think I could have written better missions, but all game players think that, don't we!

The problem I find with 'Driver: Parallel Lines' is that their is far too much traffic in New York.

Driver is about Hollywood style car chases/missions, not about getting stuck half the time a traffic jam.

It is NOT GTA, just as GTA is not DRIVER. I like the Undercover Cop Tanner story line to hang the game on. It works, and I think it is a mistake to change to the GTA 'would be criminal' story lines.

Bombing around on a motorbike is the quickest way round in the game, and this time the bikes handle better.

The three garages you can store your vehicles are a great addition, even if way to far out of town.

Taking the Dozer to the Destruction Derby track is a great way to earn a $1000 as the other cars wreck themselves against you.

But the thing is, I have spent more time just driving around doing my own thing so far, than doing the missions (which so far have been uninspiring). Surly until you have finished a game, you should want it to be the other way round. The missions just feel a chore instead of giving you that 'Oh'boy, was that good' feeling.

By the way, no boats in this game, big disappointment that. They would have been a neat way of getting round.

4.0 out of 5 stars A return to form 29 Jun 2007
By Dicka
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The first two Driver games were all-time classics. Great atmosphere, great gameplay and great music. The third one still had some of those elements, but lacked the atmosphere of the first two games, with gameplay bordering on criminaly difficult (no pun intended).

Driver:Parallel Lines, on the other hand, is far more flexible. It represents a return to form for the Driver franchise. Good soundtrack-you get a CD featuring its songs in the special edition, and a cool tin case-good, solid gameplay and the abilty to play both then and now, in 1978 and 2006. However, I'm not so keen on the fact that the game is in widescreen, and also, it's only across one city, New York, rather than the usual standard of three or four cities.

All in all, a very good game-but never again can Driver, in my opinion, scale the heights it once did. However, it's still better than the good but overhyped Grand Theft Auto series-even if this game parodies it somewhat.
