Driver: Parallel Lines Review

Needing a better than average score to redeem some respect for the series, Metacritic have awarded a score of 68% based on 12 reviews. Verdict? scraped through by it's teeth.

Reviews Summary
More depth than GTA not as many options
Impressive physics and city hides repetitive and languid gameplay
Great story makes you care about the characters
Mostly competent GTA clone, but with a dull storyline and remedial (ouch!) gameplay
Gets the series back on track, but lousy on foot controls and ai restrictions mar fun factor
Decent offering, watered down GTA
Much better outing that Driver 3 (? which wouldn't have been difficult)
Parallel bleeds style and gameplay is actually fun.
