  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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!
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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

description

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.

Horrible
Bad graphics, bad sound, bad control, horrible story. Empty streets. Barcelona is not like that. I didn´t like this game.

Barcelona is fun
This a very fun GTA-like action game, with lots of shooting and car chasing scenes. Very entertaining but the story is almost non-existent, very hard to follow. Lots of side-quests (or should we say side-races?) and exciting voice acting (even the spanish dub is great, with Jordi Boixaderas as Vin Diesel).

Since I live in Barcelona, the main setting of the game, I can say the city is not like the one in the game. Yes, the main places look very similar (Plaza Catalunya, Sagrada Familia, etc) but whenever you get out from them, the "lesser" streets are nothing like the real ones. It's a shame the programmers didn't try to imitate the real city on a more "street by street" basis.

Nevertheless, a very entertaining experience.

Weak on story but heavy on action
Main story line is kinda not understandable because without much of a proper story development between missions. But the action is just fanatic and fun. side missions are bit repetitive but fun in itself. I personally like collecting cases mission where you have to make lots of cool drift turns to go around number of checkpoint. It may not be a great but a good action racer for a budget price.

Looks Crap But Plays Great.
The graphics in this game are so terrible it may put some people of the game, But the game is so fun that after a while you may forget about the crappy graphics all together.

Another downside the side missions are so repetitive its not funny so unless you want to 100% this game i wouldn't even touch the side missions.
