Driver: Parallel Lines is for multiple consles, but this review is for the wii version.
Driver Parallel Lines takes place in New York City and some of New Jersey. The unique part of the game is that you start out in the year 1978, but later, you'll resume the game in present time (2006 for this game). This is a cool feature, and adds to the game, and shapes the storyline. Things dont change too much though. But it is a striking sight to see the Twin Towers up in 1978, but they are gone in 2006.
You play as TK,. Hes from out West, but homes too slow and dull for him. He is 18. TK idol is Ray, who moved to NYC in 75. Ray gets TK some jobs to make it to the big times. But in the end, TK gets played, a couple of times.
When he is let out of prison (28 years later) its time for revenge.
I must say, they are good. Last gen graphics, but i dont find them bad at all. And the cut scenes are very good.
The games controls work very well. You point at the screen to shoot, and you move the camrea also with the wiimote. The nunchuk when pulled backwards, is a handbrake. and the joystick is used to move TK and drive cars.
Nothing good or bad. Sounds of guns and police sirens. The voice acting is decent.
Overall Driver Parallel Lines is a fun game. Its a last gen game, but revamped with wii controls. Its also been out for wii for awhile now. The game is rated M. There is blood, and alot of swearing, so i wouldnt recommend it for people under 15. Or for people who dont like shooting and stuff. The game isnt in stores anymore. Gamestop price for NEW was still $49.99. But i bought it last year, so it most likely lowered.
