A Game That Plays Like a Movie
Video games based on movies are not rare, but what is rare is a video game developed to look and play like a movie, and that is exactly what Wheelman is. Featuring the image and voice of action star Vin Diesel as undercover agent and driver for hire Milo Burik, in an entirely digital performance, Wheelman was originally planned as a launching pad for a new movie franchise of the same name. Until then, Wheelman the video game will stand as a brash celebration of car chases and on-screen collisions that do not need a movie to keep you on the edge of your seat.

Open World Gameplay and Wheelman Moves
First and foremost Wheelman is a driving game, but in its open world gameplay universe players can go anywhere, whether behind the wheel or on foot. As with other open world games, action is split between mission play, event and freeplay, with the breakdown working out to about 80% of it taking place behind the wheel or on motorcycles, to 20% while on foot. Also, Wheelman features fully destructible environments, which allows players take advantage of special in-game features, known as 'Wheelman Moves.' Designed to illustrate the game's philosophy which considers vehicles as the ultimate weapons, these features include the Vehicle Melee mode, which allows for quick and devastating vehicle sideswiping attacks; Airjacking, which allows you to jump from car to car while attacking without having to stop your vehicle as in other open world games; and the Cyclone and Aimed Shot with which players can perform devastating feats of ballistic accuracy while on the move.

Key Game Features:

  • Vin Diesel Is The Wheelman - Action film megastar Vin Diesel and his Tigon Studios are again blurring the lines between entertainment mediums, this time collaborating with Midway in the design and production of Wheelman to ensure an edge-of-your-seat gaming experience. Diesel’s voice and likeness will appear as the game’s main character, expert Wheelman Milo Burik.
  • The Ultimate Thrill Ride - Designed to play like a Hollywood blockbuster, Wheelman delivers all the rubber-burning, asphalt-churning excitement of the most jaw-dropping high-speed car chases.
  • Open World Driving - Go where you want, do what you want, however you want. Choose your own route through the living, breathing city of Barcelona as you complete more than 30 missions and 100 side-missions, or simply drive around and take in the breathtaking Spanish architecture as you seek out all the game’s hidden cinematic jumps and golden lion statues.
  • Revolutionary Car Combat - Sideswipe pursuing enemies with Wheelman’s groundbreaking Vehicle Melee car combat. Execute devastating "slam-n-ram" maneuvers in all directions with a simple flick of the joystick. But be careful, because your enemies can do the same. Once you experience Wheelman’s Vehicle Melee, you’ll never want to play another driving game without it.
  • Maximum Mobility - Escape down a narrow alleyway on the back of a tricked-out motorcycle. Drive through an office building to make your getaway. Hop behind the wheel of exclusively licensed vehicles like the Pontiac G8 and Saturn Astra and make your escape in style. Drive it. Trash it. Crash it. You’re the Wheelman, it’s all up to you.
  • Living, Breathing Barcelona - Set in the exotic location of Barcelona, Spain. This classic European city is densely populated with traffic and pedestrians that react intelligently to your actions as you roam around realistic environments filled with massively destructible objects.
  • Cinematic Signature Stunts - Survive death-defying feats and perform pulse-pounding moves to trigger extreme over-the-top Hollywood-style mobile attack maneuvers including
    • Aimed Shot - Drive and shoot at the same time while the rest of the world slows to an easy-to-target blur.
    • The Air Jack - Leap from moving car to moving car to take control of a brand new ride.
    • The 360° Cyclone Spin: Spin around 180° to take out anyone that’s behind you, and then spin back 180° again to resume your route.
  • Hit the Pavement - Even the best Wheelman sometimes needs to get out of the vehicle. Take to the Barcelona streets for on-foot action — but make sure to remember your guns.
Experience Spain Like You Never Expected
Barcelona, Spain - the cultural capital of Europe - known for its famous Goudi architecture, provides a cosmopolitan and unique backdrop for Wheelman. Lovingly re-created as the perfect environment for Wheelman's incredible car chases - the city is filled with traffic, pedestrians and plenty of massive destruction. The realistic environment, authentic vehicles and the ambient sound and music contribute to create an immersive and believable game world unlike any other.

4.0 out of 5 stars Big Dumb Fun. April 15, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Wheelman is a bit of an enigma. Usually when games are bad, they're just BAD, not so bad they're good, as films often are. It's hard to enjoy something that one could label as bad, as far as games go.

Yes, Wheelman has bad acting, bad dialog, weird mission structures, ugly faces on every character outside of Vin Diesel, but its also a lot of FUN. And when it comes down to it, the fun factor is the number one reason a game is worth your valuable gaming time or not. Wheelman is a ton of fun.

It's got ramps and destructible objects littered all over a massive cityscape. It's also got a ton of side missions that offer a lot of replay value. It's got your standard street races, but here you have a pistol that targets the 'tyres' of your opponents, and you can physically ram or dodge with your vehicle by moving the right stick. It's got slow-motion shooting events, while you're still driving your vehicle. You can play 'hot potato' and try to grab as many cases as possible and return them 'home' in a limited amount of time. Sounds boring, but when some of the cases are located on the second story of buildings and you have to find a ramp to get to them, you have a great arcade mode that begs for a leaderboard companion.

It's also got a rampage mode (destroy everything before the time runs out), taxi mode, and several others. The story mode is nothing special, but its still fun to progress through. And the better you do on your missions, the more upgrades you can unlock.

The game threw in a ton of great little gameplay elements that street racers have been missing. You're not just a faceless driver a la the Burnout series. You have a character that develops and builds street cred along the way.

4.0 out of 5 stars DRIVER: Parallel Lines 2 May 15, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Take away Vin Diesel's name and identity from Wheelman, then ask yourself if you could go for another round of a DRIVER game where "You are the Wheelman"? If you're a Driver fan, this is a must rent/must buy. Yes, it's a bit more arcade-like in physics (fast burnouts like Driver: Parallel Lines, over the top), but it's the closest thing to playing a Driver game by another company besides Reflections, and I'm a huge Driver fan.
Here's what this game does right:
-Intense, action packed missions that are a blast to play even after "failed mission". The jumps, ramming, stunts are a thrill to experience.
-Giant Map: As big as The Getaway's map, but not as big as DPL.
-The trucks (Big rig and delivery van) both include Interior Shoulder Dash Views
-The cars and sportbikes handle well, with 3 camera views including a close car view
-Close Vehicle View: On par with a Driver game, so you're close to the action.
-On Foot freedom: Once you earn a gun, 3 camera views including default medium view, earned torso view and close over the shoulder view. Very nice, brings you INTO the game world.
-Fast paced gameplay.
-Once you get used to the lock on and manual aiming, the gunfights are fun.
-Huge city to explore, some large interiors too (office, warehouse, carparks, metro stations, etc).
-The missions are tough, but not excruciatingly frustrating like Driver's, so it won't take 50 attempts, maybe 10 at the most depending on your Driver skills.
-The sportbike Underground Subway mission was epic.
-On foot: sneak, walk, run, aim, shoot, airjack(nice feature).
-Cops are tough to shake and persistent. They will allow you to surrender(walk up to them) instead of just blindly shooting you to death like in Driver. 3 and 4 stars is fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars GTA.....Almost April 2, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Sandbox game where you can do what you want when you want. You steal cars, race cars, smash up cars, upgrade cars, avoid police and kill mobsters....sound familiar? Two unique features are the 'airjack', basically hijacking a car from a car while moving...have been playing for about 3 days now and believe it or not the 'airjack' does not get old. The other being vehicle attacks (melee attacks with an automobile or motorcycle)

All in all this game, albeit a lot like GTA, still seems fresh. The game takes place in Spain, rather than New York. The dialog is VERY cheesy, Vin Diesel just does not really seem like a believable tough guy...maybe its me. The side missions are very fun, the main story almost seems optional, since the side missions in my opinion are way more engaging.

Basically if you liked GTA, you will like this. If you did not buy GTA for little Johnny at home because of the adult content, then get him this one as the cuss words and fine women have not been included (T rating).

3.0 out of 5 stars Mr Diesel's driving skills! November 14, 2009
By Mr. PJ
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
ok so Vin Diesel decides to make a game (which is not based on any of his movies) and he decides to make it about cars. Well this is not your typical car racing game, is more like a mix of grand theft and need for speed. You get to engage in chases, you have a lot of weapons you aquire as the game progresses, you get to "air jack" cars (moving vehicles) and run free on the huge map.
Only thing about this game is that it can get very repetitive mission wise and that is ridiculously hard for no reason at all... the shooting or escort missions are not as hard; but the racing missions are just retarded! they are so hard that they knock out the chances of you even trying to beat the game. I played it a couple of days and put it down afterwards and havent touched it ever since; it got repetitive and too hard so i dropped it.
