Wheelman - Metacritic Review

Wheelman takes gamers on a white knuckle thrill ride that unfolds throughout the streets of Barcelona. Featuring car chases inspired by Hollywood's most famous action-sequences, Wheelman delivers powerful cinematic moments throughout the game's compelling storyline. 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.

PUBLISHER: Midway Games / Ubisoft
DEVELOPER: Midway Newcastle - Tigon Studios
GENRE(S): Action, Driving
PLAYERS: 1
ESRB RATING: T (Teen)
RELEASE DATE: March 24, 2009

What The Critics Said

Game Informer - 85
Wheelman has enough explosive thrills that you’ll be yelling and laughing the whole time.

ZTGameDomain - 85
Wheelman is a good game, with a bit more polish it might have been a great one. Having some good dialogue, a great soundtrack, and pretty cool premise helps distract from the pop-in that comes up every once in a while.

Team Xbox - 84
Even though Wheelman combines myriad genres, gameplay styles and presentation references into a single title, it actually pulls it off quite well.


Play.tm - 82
Much like a lot of the leading mans films, Wheelman is brainless entertainment without any pesky delusions of grandeur to trip over. Yes the plot is daft and the action as unrealistic as it comes but crucially it's also, for the most part, thoroughly enjoyable.

VideoGamer - 80
Fun can be found in the simplest of things, and Wheelman nails car combat to the extent that it carries the whole game on its wheels. There are clear issues, with re-spawning enemy drivers causing a whole heap of hassle at times, and the aforementioned on-foot combat is forgettable at best, but for the most part you'll want to stay behind the wheel.
