    I wanted Wheelman to be a guilty pleasure, like 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, but it's just guilty of being a poor game.
  2. Five years ago it might have been average. [June 2009, p.100]
  3. Awful on-foot controls. [July 2009, p.72]
  4. It’s like an ironic mustache or mullet. Like having a Steven Segal DVD in your collection. You’ll never get any real use out of it. You just have it in with your other games to show you friends you have a sense of humor.

    LOL. Just come here to see some guy making a bunch of accounts to raise the score. 0! The game was terrible. Just doesn't compare to much better games like Saints Row and GTA. Sorry. Full Review »

    Very interesting, Karolina M, SarahL, RaymondF (and so on) reviewing this title. Obviously, it's 1 person, 1 fan, with multiple accounts, but LAME as hell, doubled his name same style and writing reviews same way. Amateur are you...
    The game: enjoyable game with many bugs, failures. Recommended, if you like GTA, but GTA is better.
