Driver: Parallel Lines

Driver: Parallel Lines places gamers in New York City during two distinct eras - the 1970s and today - and centres on TK, an 18 year-old driving prodigy seeking fortune and fame. Gifted, popular and arrogant as hell, TK is one of the best drivers-for-hire in town and is known by everyone - from the pimped-out street hustlers, petty criminals, and racer boys to the shadowy crime figures that pay for his skills at the wheel. TK gets involved with a scheming group bent on taking down one of the biggest names in the underground crime scene. However, TK gets double crossed and ultimately is imprisoned for 28 years.

Fast forward to 2006 where the action kicks back in, and TK is older, meaner, and hell bent on settling some serious scores. TK 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.

Driver: Parallel Lines boasts a diverse in-game soundtrack consisting of 80+ songs from both eras. A number of hip-hop, punk, rock and dance tracks from a varied roster of artists including Blondie, David Bowie, The Damned, Marvin Gaye, TV on the Radio, and MF Doom are included on the soundtrack. Driver: Parallel Lines also features several newly commissioned tracks from Public Enemy, Grandmaster Flash, Suicide, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Arthur Baker, Mylo, Paul Oakenfold, Lifesavas and the Audio Bullys - tracks that were created exclusively for the video game.

Driver: Parallel Lines tempts gamers to modify and juice up cars while engaging in the most thrilling Hollywood-style car chases ever. Driver: Parallel Lines provides a free roaming, stylized New York City. With over 30 diverse missions and nearly 50 mini missions that load without wait times, incredibly realistic driving physics, a brand new story and a top-notch soundtrack, Driver: Parallel Lines will be a must-have title for action driving fans.

Well, I haven't played any drivers since driver 2, but this should be interesting to see how the control mechanics are done. How about a Getaway game next?

DRIV3R sucked. Horribly. I'm not interested. And since when do games on the Wii look so good? Someone's a liar, Ubisoft.

Nice screenshots!

Impressive looking screenshots. If Rockstar doesn't satisfy my GTA fix, then some other company will. In retrospect, GTA SA, was inundated with terrible slowdowns that I'm sure that GCN could have handled. Face it Rockstar, the Wii is here to stay. That kind of bullcrap should not be tolerated anymore because there shouldn't be slowdowns in games that cost $60 or even $50. "Next generation" games should not have "last generation" problems.

This looks like a decent driving game. GT pro series sucked! That cell-shaded piece of crap doesn't deserve to be a Wii game.

DarkVic said:

Don't get your hopes up about this game people. Supposedly it's a crappy port from the PS2. It's a cheap GTA rip-off that basically makes you do boring missions where your in a car, and then there are some cheap looking adventure sequences where you traverse on foot. It's not a racing game, that's for sure.

At least Driver PL is better than Driv3r, the only cool thing about that was Michel Madsen was on it. This one was just a major rip of GTA. Atari should really try to bring the Driver games back to what they were, reckless driving, out driving the cops, chasing suspects and a interesting storyline. I realized though that this series went downhill as soon as they introduced shooting.

DUDE! Another series not usually seen with Nintendo. Weird huh?

Damn dude, those screenshots are really promising. However, after DarkVic's last post, I'll need to see some good reviews before buying this game. It looks a lot more like True Crime than GTA to me.

This game should rule! From what I read they have spent quite a lot of time modifying this game for the Wii. Should be great, especially with the new Resident Evil 4 camera angle when on foot.

I have driver 1 and it's great. It sucks that the new driver is rated M.

Driver 1 had the best physics ever and I read they went back to their roots for this one, I'm excited.

I've got this driver game! It's not really what I expected. I thought it would be more like gta but it's not. Please bring GTA to the Wii.

cedy said:

I own this game and GTA SA. I say that that they're pretty close to being the same. I mean the gameplay on driver is pretty damn good and the cops don't get on you as easy.

What's GTA? Is this game any better than NFS or Burnout?

GTA is grand theft auto.
