I really wasn't expecting much out of Parallel Lines after playing and disliking Driv3r, but I think Atari pulled it off this time around. The driving is definetely the games' strongpoint, as alot of tweaks have been made. But I thought the on-foot controls were still rather clunky. A good twist with the era change, the 2006 era is definetely the the better one in my opinion. Kind of a blah storyline, but there is enough to keep you interested. Although I thought it was terribly short. Overall, definetely a step up from Driv3r, but some aspects still needed work.
this game is a huge step up from that heap of trash DRIV3R. I expected more trash but hoped that wasn't going to happen and it didn't. (hooray!) the damage system is definitely in the top 3. #1 juiced #2 flatout #3 this. And I love the variety of cars. it's almost like a real city. and when you're in a car there's not a whole bunch of that car everywhere like in gta 3. another plus is the customization. you can buy stuff like engine parts, suspension parts, body kits, bullet proof glass and tires, and more. The music is good to. Except one song, the saxophone song. If you play PS2 at night i suggest you keep the stereo volume down. you'll know the song when you hear it. (its loud and obnoxious) hey suprise-> YOU CANT SWIM---but you don't drown!! you just sploosh out of the water and yell at your self . and then there's the main part of the game... the storyline. Its SWEET. there's lotsa action and speed and guns. And a huge shocking twist!! i wont tell you what it is though :) even though its great its to short i beat it in 12-14 hours then sent it back. but those 12-14 hours kicked a~z. i seriously recommend this game to any one with a tv and a game system. p.s. its only rated (M) because like one tenth of the story has c-o-c-a-i-n-e in it and they say the "f" word about ten times total... maybe
I was suprised that this game was good becauase the only good driver was the first one for ps1 that was a classic, but this one steped it up...alot I played it for the full time i rented it instead of takin it back. The city is great you can change eras from the 80's to 2000, cars are cool customize every single vehicle and I mean every single one shooting is pretty good. Overall its worth a rent and should be played
