Wheelman is an action-adventure video game developed by Tigon Studios for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows.

Wheelman Plot

The protagonist, Milo Burik (a digitized Vin Diesel), is an undercover agent whose assignment is to work along with a gang in Barcelona planning the biggest heist of their career. He turns out to be one of the most effective weapons in the business.

Wheelman Gameplay

The game is set in an open world environment modeled after Barcelona, full of destructible objects, alleyways, shortcuts through office blocks and a total of 31 story missions and 105 side missions. While most missions are driving-oriented, there are also foot missions which are played from a third person perspective. A wide variety of guns are preserved for the player including pistols to RPGs.

Among the vehicles used by Milo Burik in the game is the Pontiac G8, shown in released trailers for Wheelman. Reports also indicated that the Opel Astra is a drivable vehicle. In the demo, his license plate says MRTL KM8T which is a reference to Mortal Kombat, Midway's popular fighting game.

The game has received mixed reviews, many of the reviewers criticising the game for falling short of story mode and lacking multiplayer functionality. IGN's Greg Miler gave the game a 4.8/10, which by the site's rating scale is translated as "poor", stating that he was hoping for the game "to be a guilty pleasure, like 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, but it's just guilty of being a poor game." GamePro, however, gave the game a high 4/5, calling the game "a GTA-meets-Burnout romp." GameSpot gave the game a 6/10 saying "Wheelman offers plenty of movie-style thrills, although it's hamstrung by terrible on-foot gameplay. Hyper's Darren Wells commends the game for "cool and useful special driving moves genuinely new locale". However, he criticises it for "meaningless vehicle handling, cheating AI, poor on-foot level design bland graphics".
