Combining spectacular Hollywood-style stunts with a gripping storyline, Vin Diesel: 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.

Vin Diesel Is The Wheelman: 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 Vin Diesel: 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.

Cinematic Thrill Ride: Vin Diesel: Wheelman delivers rubber-burning, asphalt-churning excitement that will take 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, Vin Diesel: Wheelman will deliver powerful cinematic moments throughout the game's compelling storyline.

    Supermove Stunts: Survive death-defying feats by performing pulse-pounding maneuvers that only an expert Wheelman can pull off. Pull off a Cyclone and spin the vehicle 360 degrees while precision firing at your enemies.

      More Than Just A Driver: Sideswipe pursuing enemies to get them off your tail, execute devastating maneuvers for maximum motor vehicle carnage, or grab your gun and start blasting right through the windshield.

        Maximum Mobility: Commandeer a semi truck to leave your mark on the city. Escape down a narrow alleyway on the back of a tricked-out motorcycle. Hop behind the wheel of exclusively licensed vehicles and make your getaway in style.

          Hit The Pavement: 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.

            Living, Breathing Barcelona: 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.

             This is the best game so far in 2009

            The negative reviews are nonsense. I play every single action game and this is the most fun I have ever had in a vehicle combat game.

            - Old school fun gameplay
            - accessible driving controls
            - completely unique vehicle melee (use your car to bash enemies around you)
            - the supermoves are amazing and work really well (slow down time to take aimed shots at enemies in the middle of a 100mph chase).

            Basically, if you like fun action games, then you must own this!

            Based on the demo from the PSN network.

            This is no triple A, 5 star game, but, crutially it is a fun game.
            The graphics are pretty good, above average, sound is beefy, but importantly it is fun!!!!!!
            Based on what i have played so far if you can imagine a cross between Chase HQ + GTA + Pursuit force + Vin Diesel at the wheel and you got the Wheelman.
            Controls are initially overwhelming but they become 2nd nature.
            The playability is excellent, lots to do even in the demo.
            I dunno long term how the full release will fare but certainly i for one will be buying it as its old school style racing meets bash em up!!!!!!!
            Try and see yourself!!!!!!!

             Is this for PS2?

            Honestly, people are saying the graphics are good... seriously? It looks more past gen then next gen. Plus everything is so bland - just flat open roads surrounded by repeated buildings. Which part of Barcelona is this supposed to be with so many empty streets as well?

            As for the gameplay, well, if you like your vehicles without any form of accurate handling then this is the game for you. The on foot shooting sections are okay but as it's called Wheelman I didn't expect to have to do so many of them. Then again, every driving section seemed to amount to 'go to A, pick up B, drive back to C... and here comes the countless bad guys all spraying thousands of bullets at you'. The build for each mission might've been different, but they just became the same boring drive/ram/shoot moments. Plus, how come every vehicle was always faster then the Wheelmans? Even if you had the same vehicle as the enemy. Never any chance of out running anyone, just shoot or ram them... until the next level.

            Also, it's clear Vin and the rest of the cast weren't really that bothered as the acting is terrible. Also they could've at least matched the script to the game action. I recall an ending line "the streets are so busy" - yet the streets are empty, as always. Also, I may not have been paying attention but I found the whole storyline confusing. It just didn't make sense - here's a driver working for every criminal gang and everyone seems okay with that, screw loyalty and the fact he's killing gang members left and right.

            There are some good parts - such as the Air-Jack to steal other cars, and some of the side missions are interesting, but as with the main game, it just gets all too repetitive.

            There's better driving games out there, and better open world city crime games out there, so why buy this one? Honestly the people who made this should feel ashamed as it's clear no play testing was involved. And if they can't be bothered to play their own game, then why should anyone else.
