Atari yesterday shipped to retail stores Driver: Parallel Lines, its Hollywood-style action driving game and the fourth installment in the Driver franchise. The game is available for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox.
In Driver: Parallel Lines, said Atari, gamers are in New York City during the 1970s and today. Features of the game include customizable cars, Hollywood-style car chases, free roaming around the Big Apple, 30 missions, 50 mini-missions and realistic driving physics.
“Driver: Parallel Lines goes beyond the typical driving video game by delivering a cinematic experience reminiscent of a Hollywood-style action movie, coupled with a dual-era storyline, revenge, and an incredible soundtrack that is unparalleled,” said Rick Mehler, Director, Marketing, Atari, Inc, in a statement. “As the game returns to its roots of non-stop driving action, Driver: Parallel Lines also takes the genre one step further by incorporating Reflections’ top-notch driving physics that will both challenge and exhilarate gamers.”
