There is no way Wheelman will be good. It's impossible.

The game is being developed by the bankrupt Midway, which hasn't released an exciting game since Mortal Kombat II in 1993. It's a Grand Theft Auto knock-off, which usually means you can't expect much. To make matters worse, it's based on a delayed movie by the same name staring Vin Diesel, and games based on movies are hardly a good thing.

The negative associations are all here, and from the sound of it, you'd be wise to keep this one well off your gaming radar.

And yet here I am. Playing the latest preview build of Wheelman to the very end-at will, even. It's hard to put the controller down. "Is this possible? Could it be? Are you sure this game isn't made by someone other than Midway?" I ask myself.

Yes and no.

Given the Vauxhall Astra in the SS, i guess that's meant to be the UK or Europe.

At least it looks good and we don't know if it's good until we actually play the game.

LOL I remember playing Driver 3 on my Xbox...glitchiest game ever, but still so much fun to mess around on.
