    Parallel Lines is an energetic driving/action/shooter with loads of personality and twice the depth of its underperforming predecessor. [Nov 2007, p.76]

    For 20 quid, it's a half-decent ride while it lasts. [Sept 2007, p.73]
  3. Driver: Parallel Lines looks seriously outdated on the PC. Its dull story and gameplay prevent it from being recommendable.

    A comprehensive lesson in how to make a mediocre "GTA" clone. [Oct 2007, p.62]

Superficially, in 2008, the game looked terrible, but if we accept the fact that the studio had problems and that this is a new vision of the Driver, then the game basically has a good dramatic independent story, good physics, even beautiful two eras that differ even in color. Of the minuses, I can note: motorcycle control, sometimes stupid naive tasks, clumsiness of NPCs and strange animations. And of course the fact is worth considering that the game was released on the old generation and was inferior in graphics.

    however, the PSP released driver 76 on the same engine and beyond praise

It took me only 6 hours to beat it. This is my fav Driver game. I just love the 70's. And the idea, that when you're half-through the game the time changes to 2006 is amazing. I love driving in this game, the missions are fun and varied. I didn't do much of the side missions though. I was more interested in the story and I wasn't disappointed. I didn't encounter any bugs while playing the game, but I wasn't happy with the controls. I always play on mouse+keyboard setting and here the aiming from cars is terrible. Because of that I had problems in few missions, but I was able to get through it. Everything else is fine. Go get this game, it's the best from the franchise and you don't have to play the others as the story involves different characters. Pickens approves! Expand

    Horrid controls, Im using a game pad an there is overlap on many controls by default which screws things up pretty bad. I wouldn't recommend it.
