This game is pretty good, but has some major flaws. First, you cant kill police. I was in a subway station and a policeman was hit by a train going like 100mph, he fell down and got back up. You also cant kill civilians, which i guess is also dissapointing i reccomend you to buy a gta, not this.
Best Game for T GAMERS!!!!!!!
its awesome!!!! really good graphics and its cool how u can shoot in cars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A game even Vin Diesel couldnt save.
Wheelman is a game that isn't good nor bad. I will admit that Vin Diesel did a great job voiceing his video game counter part as did most of the other characters. The Graphics are okay but there are a lot of bugs in this game. The story is boring and unoriginal. But the game is a great when your in a car: movie-like action stunts, Awesome driving tricks, and great cars is what doesn't make this a horrible game. But once your out of the car the whole game is ruined. The open world is boring and just the same people and same buildings. No side missions at all. You can only use your gun during missions. Stuff like that is what stops Wheelman from being a good game.
Very Shallow and Limited
Wheelman is a friendlier version of Grand Theft Auto. That is really the only way to describe this game. You play as Vin Diesel, an undercover cop who isn't really a good one. He blows his cover, kills a lot of people, and has no emotions. It is also never explained that he is undercover. So the layout is simple. He is kind of undercover and he is a getaway driver. However, this game should not be called Wheelman, for your car is pretty much your last priority. The characters are your average crime game. Characters swear for no reason, they take themselves way too seriously, and always have their bases underneath a bar, or in some large buildings. The plot is cliched, and it goes exactly where you think it will. The game is also buggy. Really buggy. You get stuck in items countless times, and I've fallen through the ground way to much. This would be okay, if there was a decent checkpoint system. Every time you fail, you have to restart the boring missions. Grand Theft Auto 4 had the same problems, but at least missions were fun, and they weren't repetitive. Also, this game tries to hard to keep Teen rating. Push, it up to mature and the game would be so much better! You could do more things, and have more fun. It also doesn't help that the world is lifeless. People are identical, buildings are overused, and there aren't any side activities such as bowling, drinking, or streaking. These are what made the game's competitors so successful. Also, the side missions are downright terrible. There is racing, and... that's it. The game is at times fun, but it quickly wears off. The game has a great opening, but it fails after that. I am skinning the cow right now, picking it apart, but really, it is necessary. I believe that if they made a sequel, gave it an M rating, gave the open world much more polish, added more mature themes, applied better side quests, and made it less like an action movie and made it more like a GTA clone, that would make the game much more fun. This game does not have terrible visuals, and quite a lot of replay value (somehow) but there is hardly any pay off to this otherwise mediocre game. I hope that Ubisoft and MidWay team up once more, to give the game a sequel. It would be great, but it probably wouldn't make any money. MidWay and Ubisoft, if you are reading this, make a sequel with more of a Bang, and less of a whimper. Please. Overall, this game did not pull of the large amount of stunts that it tried too, but it is still not a terrible game.
BEST GAME EVER for teenagers
I really love this game it is like Gta IV and also like saints row 2 cause you can do whatever you want this game is perfect for teen if your parents say you can't play Gta IV or saints row 2 then play wheelman it is the perfect GTA and SR2 clone for teenagers
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
This game is just like GTA and Saints Row but not as bad. You can pretty much do whatever you want in the city. I never get tired with this game. One of the best T rated games I've gotten.
another good vin diesel action game
wheelman is kind of like gta,only you use your car as a weapon most of the time.its great,especially with vin diesal in it,who is a great actor of mostly action movies.
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?
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
