"Characters in Parallel Lines" link[edit]

-in the box at the bottom of the page just goes back to the main page. If anyone objects to me removing a useless link, feel free to revert. Physischitzo 09:31, 7 August 2009 (UTC)


Does anyone have the soundtrack listing ? . I just got the game and the soundtrack rocks !!!!. i love 70's rock !! andrewkeith80 03:35, 16 July 2006 (UTC)

I think it's in the game booklet. -albrozdude 05:01, 16 July 2006 (UTC)

All this new info[edit]

The huge, probably verifiable but not encyclopedia-appropriate, list of info needs to be dealt with. Most of it is speculative or already discussed in the article proper, so I'd suggest removing most of the list and maybe incorporating other bits into the rest of the article. (I might do this if no one else does) -Albrozdude 23:37, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

Nevermind, I did it...Albrozdude 03:57, 28 January 2006 (UTC)

Please, numerous anonymous editors, stop adding copy-and-pasted text from unsourced websites to this article. If you want to add info, integrate it into the text that already exists and be sure to cite your references. Thank you! -albrozdude 19:16, 7 February 2006 (UTC)


The game shows a value of 76 cars and how many you alredy have in the Stass menu... I find on some forums that there are in thruth over 80 driveable vehicles... But even if there are only 76, there are only 61 listed in this article (considering the both San Marrinos, and both Prison Van an Bus) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 22:33, 24 June 2006 (UTC).

Well feel free to add any that you find missing. I suppose in the next day or so I could fire up my copy of the game again to find which cars are missing. If you have any sources for your claims of 80+ cars, you could add that info in. -albrozdude 05:12, 25 June 2006 (UTC)
I used the 'all vehicles' cheat to see all cars. There are only lots of versions of the original cars (Cerva Punk, Bonsai Racer, Torrex Turbo) plus a "Pimp Ride", the one from Kill Slink mission, is it a modified alredy in the list SUV or another vehicle? Same guy from above 01:28, 1 July 2006 (UTC)
I'll add a note to the vehicles section about the "special" versions of the cars. If you notice any "normal" vehicles missing though, feel free to add them. -albrozdude 07:15, 1 July 2006 (UTC)

The Mexican story[edit]

"He is first seen with his previous driver locked in the trunk of his car." is a little wrong, since he states that was only a joke to scare the kid. Althrough someone was in the trunk, nothing (but the joke) points to be the previous driver. 01:38, 1 July 2006 (UTC)

I fixed that bit. -albrozdude 02:54, 1 July 2006 (UTC)

He states that it was HIS previous driver. tanner didn't work for the Mexican therefor it cannot be him. just putting that out there —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:24, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

You see the real person who was mentioned to be in the truck, later on in the game. So he wasn't referring to Tanner in anyways. --Driver Madness 09:19, 3 November 2007 (UTC)


I decided to remove cheats as with the latest edition of the article, I felt that the previously somewhat incospicuous section was getting out of hand. I have moved the cheats to StrategyWiki. Do not add cheats or strategy to this article; go to StrategyWiki to add such info. Thanks. -albrozdude 02:54, 1 July 2006 (UTC)

No cheats for this game exsist on StrategyWiki Driver Madness 12:39, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

Once again, removed criticisms section[edit]

Inserting one's personal opinion under a banner of "Criticisms" and using weasel words like "most gamers think..." is a violation of Wikipedia NPOV policy. Please do not do this. In fact, the lead of the "Overview" subsection details some common complaints leveled by published videogame reviewers who, per Wikipedia policy about sources, are the only opinions that matter. Thank you. -albrozdude 03:11, 15 October 2006 (UTC)

2006 vehicles under attack by anonymous user[edit]

This is'nt absolutely right. This anonymous user (known as keeps changing vehicles. The Indiana car resembles the Lexus RX300, not Chrysler Pacifica, because Indiana's headlights are triangular as the Lexus RX300, and the tailights are not like the Pacifica. It's the RX300. The Torrex keeps changing from Chevy Impala to Ford Crown Victoria. This anonymous user is very wrong, as the Torrex's tailights are not like the Ford, it's the Chevrolet Impala. And the Torrex's grille from the front bumper is not as the Ford Crown Victoria, because the grille from the Torrex is not big. The headlights and the bumpers are like the Chevrolet Impala, and not the Ford Crown Victoria. Professional Gamer 17:03, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

Here are pictures of the Torrex and Indiana for reference. Wangry 06:07, 28 January 2007 (UTC)
This is irrelevant now as I've removed the vehicle list as it doesn't conform to Wikipedia policy. Please don't insert any more vehicle lists here. Thank you. -albrozdude 04:05, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

I have cleaned up the article[edit]

I cleaned up the article some time ago but various anons and others somehow screwed it up again, so I've simply reverted to my original version after determining that doing so would not compromise any relevant information. Please do not reinsert vehicle lists, soundtrack lists, or any such 'lists'. Thank you. -albrozdude 22:56, 19 March 2007 (UTC)


should it be noted that this is the first post-911 game to feature the twin towers? 02:58, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

If there is a way to cite that then yes, it could be included. -albrozdude 18:12, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

this site shows evidence that the wtc is included in the game. In an image format.

According to what I have learn't Wikipedia prefers you don't link to such a page, since it's more of a question and you have to scroll down to find the images. A proper driver wiki is coming soon and should contain lots of information about the WTC involved in the game which would be better to Cite that. Driver Madness 12:33, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

wtf is this[edit]

did some company exec write this bullshit? i mean come on here, lets get a real article written and not some advertisement crap. im gonna keep deleting the bs until then

What are you not liked written on the article page. Driver Madness 11:51, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

i'm gonna help you

yeh madness some of the people here are really annyoing i'm gonna help you deleting this shit :P 16:09, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

But first we need to find the big problems --Driver Madness 05:14, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

There isn't really anything in the article about all of the negative backlash this game got from critics about a large amount of gameplay issues. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:45, 8 July 2008 (UTC)


Plot section is excessively long, should be ideally no more than 700 words, but is it even necesary when there is a perfectly good summary under "Story"? (talk) 10:32, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

The Mexican voice actor[edit]

I just want to say to people stop putting the name of Carlos Ferro, because the voice actor is Nolan North, not Ferro. Just look at the game's credit. Thanks ShifterBr (talk) 00:05, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

Major Editing Work Done - 28/06/2016[edit]

I have done some extensive, major work on this article, that I hope should make it better than it was, as stated below:

  • 1. The initial paragraph for this has been expanded, with the overview section deleted and its info merged into this paragraph, while providing a brief description of the game's story.
  • 2. The Gameplay Section has been re-written - Controls section info has been moved into this, while the section was deleted; New York City section is now renamed as Setting, and the information has been rewritten (top paragraph relates to New York's appearance in the game, bottom is on the landmarks and transportation elements); Vehicles section has been merged into the main bulk of the Gameplay section, with some info deleted for being too much detail; Info for Gameplay has been reassigned to specific paragraphs based on what it states (top is new additions and the elements based on Grand Theft Auto, Middle is changes and removals, bottom is Game's Appearances and changes in it by the different periods/eras).
  • 3. Plot has been rewritten and trimmed. It was written with sections in regards to the Eras, which was unnecessary, while there was too much detail in regards to what was done. This has been reduced, but has kept in relevant plot points of the game's story mode.

I hope this Major Work improves the article. GUtt01 (talk) 16:33, 28 June 2016 (UTC)
