Having trained with ATG squats, squats just breaking parallel, parallel squats, and partial squats, my opinion is that parallel squats are much the same as ATG ones in terms of muscle recruitment. Personally, I have never felt my hamstrings hurt more than when I started doing heavy partials; something that seems to be the opposite of what you'd expect.
