Rent it first
The game is fun, but once you complete the campaign, there is NOTHING to do because of it having no xbox live. If you have played GTA 4, SR2, Crackdown, or any of the other games like that, then you probaly won't like this. If this is your first game like this, then you might love running around takin cars. This game seems like more of a car fighting game than an on-foot and cars. I mean it's called "Wheelman". The controls are okay but when you switch weapons, it gets hard. No and it's not the scroll thing you press right on the d-pad, but it doesn't work that good. Graphics-good when it comes to city and cars, but the people are kinda messed up. The story is thrown around- there are 3 gangs and you are secretly working for all 3, causing them to start having war on each other. then you go in and kill the leader of each. woohoo acheivment. the end. for gamerscore- i got 385 but haven't seen any higher. i havent even seen many with the game. glad i rented it.
this is all and all a great game. i like free roam games so. this has a strange story line that i didnt really pay attention to. i find it fun to drive around get chased by the cops. a bumber is that you cant kill cops when your on foot, i learned that the hard way, got out and started to shoot them but it doesnt effect them, in cars however you can go into slow mo and blow their cars up, all in all good buy
Great Game for People Craving Action
I first played this game at my cousins. It was soo awesome I had to buy it. The Graphics are good, but the sounds are excellent. Even if you dont want to play through the storyline, you can just crash cars and blow them up. It is a great game. I can't say anymore, you'll just have to buy it.
4 best game ever
it is the 4 best game ever kinda short though but i still gave it 6 great game in it you are milo burik and you are working for 3 gangs and do work for them milo is a agent and has to do things for them in barcelona in spain there is a litte spanish in the game i did not get but it was ok but the beggining was werid it was just a police chase and you had this women called lumie in the car and you had to escape i will not tell the end if you are reading this but all i have to say is i love this game and this is a game to get really i would give it a 10 i do not know why it got bad rattings maybe because it was like gta which every body loves but i hate gta but again gameinformer gave it a 8.5 of 10 which is not bad but one of the best games game and great visuals
Good, but way too short
Well, i definitely had fun playing this game, but then i got to the end and it left me with a kinda "that's it?" sensation. To be fair, i didn't beat all the side missions, but I found most of them boring. The racing ones were cool, and so were the ones where you gotta like run away from people chasing you. The story was great. Just like watching a Vin Diesel movie, but i beat it the day I got it, and that kinda sucked. So i guess to sum it up, its a short, fairly exciting, vin diesel gta clone sandbox game. Like remember how when you got GTA san andreas and it took you weeks to beat and you get that sense of accomplishment after Tempeny's dead under the firetruck, and all the cool kids are chillin on Grove Street and all is right with the world? You won't get that experience with this game, but it still is pretty fun, and its sweet to jump from car to car (although, if thats all you wana do, just snag the demo).
Good but could be better
This game is awesome especially during campiagn. The campaiagn is great and fast paced action almost like a Fast and Furious movie. The open world is a great addition. It almost makes it feel like GTA with stealing cars and getting chased my cops and thugs.Other than that the gameplay is very repetitive. The campiagn takes like a day to complete. You can't kill anything unless you are in a mission killing thugs. If you blow up a cops car the cops just get up and steal a civilian car. There is a star system like the heat system in the need for speed series, but the only difference if that you can never outrin the cops when you reach the highest level you are just waiting to get arrested basically. The other thing is when you get caught nothing happens to you. You just reset with no car. Car tires are really easy to blow up. When they do the car goes flying to the side. The blown out tires don't really affect the proformance of the car. It pretty much just keeps goinfg the same speed. After you have completed all the missions in campaign alll you really have left is side missions that arent really that fun. When you complete all the side missions, which is pratically impossible, you don't have anything to do other than just driving around and getting chased by cops which gets really boring after about 3 chases. It is also really boring since there is no online. Not even an online race. Overall the game is good when you have campiagn missions left to do still, but bad when you complete it after about a day. You would be better of with GTA4 which is basically the same, but with so much more better features
Overall a Great Game
This is a great game. The story mode is kind of short, but there is plenty of side missions to do after you complete it. Some missions got annoying because I had to replay them a gazillion times. I guess most of the missions are pretty much the same thing-chase down a guy, blow up his car, escape and kill his backup. But I don't mind it. The game play is great and it's still fun after a while. The sound is good and the graphics are pretty average. I do wish that it had cooler cars, like Fast & Furious type( it's Fast & Furious the Game pretty much anyway), but that's about the only thing I don't like about this game. I mean its got Vin Diesel in it how could it be bad?
I got this game about a week or so ago. Overall it's a pretty good game. It's kinda like a GTA but minus the blood, and the freedom. Also some of the missions don't really fit. One minute you're dealing with a rich broker at his ginormous mansion then the next minute your getting shot at by a bunch of drug dealers or you're trying to run through new stands. It's crazy and fun at the same time. Like craun, or fuazy. The graphics are not the greatest i looks kinda like mercinaries or shaun white. Another thing is the movements are kind of off. For example when you try to turn sometimes the car takes a while to turn so you end up crashing into the side of a building and totaling your car. But to me the coolest part is when you need a new car all that you have to do is line up behind a car and press B then boom you have yourself a new car. ALOHA!!
Cant buy GTA buy this
THis game is a very close replica to GTA. If your a teen and want GTA and your parents wont let you buy this it is a very good crash and rob game.
when i got this game i was expecting it to be a bad copy of games like grand theft auto or saints row both of which r games i love but i was very surprised to find that it is a great game that is just as good as both gta and saints. well on the ground the game is pretty much the same as those two you can do whatever you want and you can get cops up to 5 stars worth. missions on the ground are also the same as other games. but the features when you are in cars is what really sets this game apart. the air jacking is very fun the cars are easily controlled one of the best features is the vehicle melee. the story line is great and very in depth. the missions are pretty challenging but not to hard. the game is pretty lengthy it isnt short but its not one of the games that goes on forever. overall this is a great game that i highly recommended
