    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. 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.
  3. Five years ago it might have been average. [June 2009, p.100]
  4. Awful on-foot controls. [July 2009, p.72]

Graphics are not bad in 1920x1200, slightly above average quality for an Unreal Engine 3 games. This game would be a good buy when the price comes down. Full Review »

It doesn't have the depth and complexity of GTA for sure but who cares? I don't think it's ever meant to be GTA, it's designed to be fun and it delivers! Full Review »
