  1. The closest thing to GTA on Wii, featuring great vehicles, okayish missions and a colossal city to drive around in. [Sept 2007, p.51]
  2. It's alright, but not good enough for us to forgive yet another port. [Aug 2007, p.76]

    Whilst it doesn't have the depth of play of The Godfather, or the violence of Scarface it does a good job of playing to its strengths and delivering a highly enjoyable game.
  4. 59
    Driver attempts to join the ranks of more successful Wii-makes such as Godfather and Scarface, but will find itself at the bottom of the open-world barrel on Nintendo’s console, as the game lacks depth, fine-tuned control, and the right mix of motion/IR control.
  5. Driver: Parallel Lines is a mediocre GTA clone with a dull storyline, second-rate gameplay, and subpar control.
  6. 50
    There are some things the game does right -- the drive-by shooting is pretty sweet -- but problems with the controls for the driving -- essentially the guts of the game -- more than suck any sort of fun out of the thing.
  7. Even though there's loads to do, it doesn't alter the fact that this smelly port of Driver: Parallel Lines just reeks of lazy developing - simply put, it's hard to get into and a battle to play.
