    Driver: Parallel Lines is the fourth game in the Driver series. It was developed by Reflections Interactive and published by Atari SA in March 2006 for PlayStation 2 and Xbox. The game was later published to the Wii and PC by Ubisoft in June 2007.

    Unlike previous games in the series, Driver: Parallel Lines focuses on a new protagonist known as The Kid (abbreviated to T.K.) and the entire game takes place in New York City within two time periods - 1978 and 2006.


    The game focuses on a wheelman called TK (The Kid)

    18 year-old TK (The Kid), through his friend Ray, is set up to work as a getaway driver for a small crime ring. The ring is composed of TK, Slink, Bishop, "The Mexican," Candy, and lead by a corrupt undercover detective named Corrigan.

    After kidnapping Rafael Martinez, a rival drug lord, Corrigan kills Martinez and then turns on TK, shooting him and leaving him to face the murder charge alone.


    During his 28-year sentence at Sing-Sing prison, TK develops his plans to hunt down and kill everyone who betrayed him. He's released at 46 years-old and immediately kickstarts his revenge mission. Starting with The Mexican, who has since become an alcoholic and works at an arcade in Queens.


    Driver: Parallel Lines is an open-world driving game with some on-foot sections. Unlike other games in the series which generally take place in several locations, the entirety of Driver: Parallel Lines takes place in New York City and parts of New Jersey.


    Driver: Parallel Lines features a licensed soundtrack consisting of over 70 songs - from both the 1970s and 2000s. The songs from 1978 Era also play in Driver '76. These songs only play when the player is in a vehicle:
