The Wheelman

Thunderbolt Games
11 April 2010
  • Excerpt: In so many ways, The Wheelman is a fitting title to mark the final major product released by the now defunct Midway Games. Riddled with references to the gems of the company’s past, the game has all of the classic trappings – good and bad – of Midway’s massive library of releases.

The Wheelman

Saving Progress
8 May 2009
  • Conclusion: If you’re looking for something to play until The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Athena comes out, and have somehow finished the pile of great games from the holiday, T he Wheelman isn’t a terrible choice. The arcade driving can pack a thrilling punch, and most of the mechanics work well. Just be wary of the terrible plot, acting, and shooting, and you should have a decent drive into the sunset.

  • Excerpt: skulks somewhere off in the dunes, powering out onto the strip at intervals to clobber civilian traffic. Rockstar's take up two lanes apiece, each car mashing its mirrored bodywork against the other in a gush of white-hot triple-A sparks. A little to the rear there's , cheerfully scorching figure-of-eight patterns into the tarmac, and ticking on the curb the battered but doughty With that calibre of machine jostling at the traffic lights, any driver behind the wheel of...

  • Excerpt: It seems to be a prime time for Vin Diesel with several computer games including Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena released recently. Today we are taking a look at Wheelman, a game much closer to what you would expect from the musclebound anti hero if you went to the cinema to see his latest film. It is all about fast cars, lovely looking women and plenty of weaponry. The mainstream press have slated this recently, but I find it quite enjoyable!

Wheelman Review (Russian, PC)

12 April 2009
  • Conclusion: Просто пристраиваетесь сзади того, который вам понравился, перепрыгиваете на новую машину и выбрасываете водителя. Выгляди потрясающе , как и остальные эффекты . В игре притягивают как сюжет (на самом деле, я играл с 7 вечера до 4 утра без передышки), так и сторонние миссии, например, разгромить собственность города на определенную сумму, убить противника, заполучит автомобиль противника, и т.п.

Wheelman Review (360/PS3)

UGO
9 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Hey kids, remember Grand Theft Auto 3 ?  Wasn't that game great?  Did you like it so much you want to play it over and over and over and over and over?  Well, the game developers of the world are eager to help, with a metric buttload of GTA knockoffs just for you.  But leave it to the great minds at Midway to come up with Wheelman , a game that seems intent on ripping off Driv3r ---it's like trying to break into the grunge-rock scene with an Offspring tribute band.
  • Pros: vin Diesel is the end all and be all
  • Cons: yuo expect more from your games
