Driver: Parallel Lines returns to its gameplay roots with a sophisticated, adrenaline-pumping car chase AI and unprecedented vehicle dynamics and physics. Driver: Parallel Lines is set in a photorealistic interpretation of New York City, features a seamless open mission structure, and is one of the first console racing games to incorporate online play.

Driver: Parallel Lines is the next instalment of Atari's legendary action driving game franchise. It's the only game that offers an open, fast-paced driving action-movie experience and features an unfolding storyline of double crossing and revenge.

The first half of Driver: Parallel Lines is set in a photorealistic interpretation of New York City during the 1970's as players take on the role of TK, a notorious 18 year-old who, free from conscience and rules, is the most sought after driver-for-hire in town.

TK gets involved with a scheming group bent on taking down one of the biggest names in the underground crime scene. As the getaway driver, TK gets double crossed and is imprisoned for 28 years.

Fast forward to 2006 and TK is older, meaner, and hell bent on settling some serious scores. He needs to call on every driving trick in his considerable repertoire to tame the over-powered road machines that 2006 presents him. After twenty-plus years in jail, it's time to hit the streets once again.

Modify and juice up your cars before engaging in the most thrilling Hollywood-style car chases ever. With over 35 diverse missions, incredibly realistic driving physics, and a brand new story with an unforeseen twist, Driver: Parallel Lines is a must-have title for action driving fans.
