Driver: Parallel Lines for Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2)
Two different time periods are captured in Driver: Parallel Lines, the fourth game in the cinematic, mission-based racing series from U.K. developer Reflections Interactive. Players begin the game during the "Me Decade," the 1970s, as they guide a self-assured 18-year-old named TK in his bid to become a the best getaway driver in New York City. Things do not go as planned, however, as TK is double-crossed and forced to spend the next 28 years behind bars. The action then moves ahead to 2006, with players engaging in modern-day chases, pick-up runs, heists, shootouts, and more. Parallel Lines offers a choice of 80 drivable vehicles, from cars and bikes to buses and construction machines, with players able to fine-tune and customize their ride's look as the game progresses. Each vehicle will also experience real-time damage throughout over 35 missions set within the city that never sleeps. Players can once again leave their cars at any time to continue missions on foot, acquire an assortment of weapons, and interact with a cast of colorful characters. While exploring the city's streets, players may also engage in optional mini-games like destruction derbies and cops and robbers.
