Combining spectacular Hollywood-style stunts with a gripping storyline, Wheelman provides an adrenaline- fueled, cinematic thrill ride guaranteed to leave you breathless. Vin Diesel stars as an undercover agent and highly skilled driver who must infiltrate the Barcelona underworld to gather intelligence surrounding a covert heist. Posing as a driver-for-hire, he ends up caught in a crossfire of corruption and chaos while trying to stay one step ahead of local law enforcement and rival gangs.

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 ground-breaking 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.
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.

It's good for when it was made.I used to LOVE this game, but now, I don't really care for it. But if you would like a PG version of Grand Theft Auto (GTA), then there you go!

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 LimitedWheelman 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.

great Gamethis 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
