Driver Parallel Lines Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • Conclusion: Is Driver Parallel Lines a Grand Theft Auto clone or a mere wannabe? No, and it is clear that it wasn’t designed with that in mind. Although the core gameplay mechanics may share a great resemblance with GTA , this fourth Driver entry plays much like the original did, and that is fine and dandy with us.

Driver: Parallel Lines Review (Xbox)

About.com
30 January 2007
  • Conclusion: Atari Driver: Parallel Lines definitely points the franchise in the right direction after the debacle that was Driv3r, but it still has a ways to go to catch up to GTA. The story is good, but the on foot sections stink. The driving can be fun – it has always been the best part of Driver - but the missions are so difficult and annoying that all of the frustration just isn’t worth it. It isn’t bad, per se, it just isn’t all that good. Worth a rental and nothing more.

  • Excerpt: The Driver series that flourished on the PlayStation took a hit below the belt with the release of Driver 3. Now, Driver: Parallel Lines is back, brought to you by Atari and the men and women at Reflections. Is the fourth iteration in the Driver series the return to greatness we've all been expecting and hoping for? Or does Driver: Parallel Lines only offer what we've seen before at mediocre levels? Chris Martin has the final word inside.
  • Pros: ups: Excels in Driving Physics, City is huge, the story is cliched but enjoyable
  • Cons: downs: Poor Cop AI, The Aiming System needs a little work, Can't go in buildings, NY seems rather mundane, too much a clone of GTA?

  • Conclusion: Non exempt de tous reproches, Driver : Parallel Lines est finalement un assez bon jeu, bien loin de Driv3r , les développeurs ont donc, par force d’abnégation, enfin réussi à faire quelque chose d’intéressant avec la série. Le gameplay du soft regorge de bonnes idées, l’ambiance des 70’s est de mise et le scénario est bien ficelé et agréable à suivre. Certes tous les défauts n’ont pas été corrigés, et le titre semble être très (trop ?
  • Pros: L'ambiance des 70's, Le système d'indice de recherche
  • Cons: Répétitif, Gunfights fades, 2006 complètement ratée, Court

  • Conclusion: 11 /20 Après un troisième opus plus que décevant, Reflections Interactive essaie tant bien que mal de redonner une identité à sa série. Cependant, il faut avouer que la tâche était difficile, surtout quand le principal concurrent n’est autre que GTA… Faute d’être exceptionnel, ce Parallel Lines n’en demeure pas moins un bel essai, légèrement meilleur que le précédent.
  • Pros: Phases de jeu en véhicules, Excellente durée de vie, Une bande sonore énorme !, Cinématiques magnifiques
  • Cons: Graphismes moches, IA médiocre, Beaucoup de bugs !, Phases de jeu à pied, Trop difficile, Décors pauvres, Mais où est le mode Cinéma ?
