    Here is the latest fact sheet for upcoming Ubisoft title, Driver Parallel Lines. The title is due for release on March, 29th 2007.

    Plot
    “New York in ’78 was the coolest place on the planet. I was new to the Big Apple, just a country boy looking to make it good. In just a few weeks it felt like home. From New Jersey to Queens, from the Bronx down to Battery this was my patch, my backyard. 28 years later and the city sparkled like new but underneath, the filth was still there, and I had vengeance crawling inside me.”

    I certainly hope this proves to be a better game than the rest in the Driver series. I also hope it looks like those screenshots.

    I played this game on PS2 and it was pretty boring but I think the added wii controls could give it that edge it was missing.

    I think this is another example of developers going "lets add wii controls and not really do much else and hope it will sell" Games need to be designed around the controls, not the controls just shoved in is what I think.

    Also 100 posts, w00t.

    Is this official?, and i hope there not the controls to drive the car, cause they look the same as COD 3 and they were terribly hard to use.

    yea, or if they do the driving controls like COD3 hopefully they'll be improved, me and my friend looked like retards trying to drive in that game haha

    and hopefully those arn't graphics for the other consoles [if its even coming out for them?] because I remember watching trailers for far cry and saying wow, then it came out and i was like wtf?

    Part 1 was awesome then the sequels were all kinda downhill. I hope they have brought it back with the fun factor the first one had. The screens looked good and clean. I will see how the reveiws fair and go from there.

    Kind of GTA-esque.

    Are there trailers for this game out yet? I'm definitely intrigued by the game. As you mentioned Blueradio it kinda looks GTA like and we all know how good that game was.

    I don't care what anyone says, this is one of the best games on the xbox... I wasted so much of my life on it last year. A deep storyline to go along with awesome game play. Heh, if it means I don't have to steel my brother's xbox, I'm definitely going to buy it first chance I get.
