The Wheelman (Xbox 360)
Advantages: Fun action packed .
Disadvantages: Hard to follow plot .
A game of a film starring Vin Diesel which was never actually made. As it happens the bald, Muscly one is such a massive gamer that he owns a game company and astonishingly, given that games of films are usually awful, this is different.
In truth, it's probably just as well the Wheelman film wasn't made if the game is anything to go by, as its dialogue is dreadful and its plot hard to follow. But you can forgive such failings in a game as long as it provides intense action and has some good ideas, and Wheelman delivers on both counts.
Plus, it looks superb, and is set in an impressively realistic Barcelona. You play Vin Diesel playing Milo Burik, getaway driver, who secretly works for some Government agency and is on a mission to infiltrate Barcelona's criminal gangs. Since he's Vin, they all trust him, and it's not long before you're nicking a lorry-load of porn and guns from Romanian gangsters, then mashing the countless cars they send to chase you to smithereens.
Wheelman's big idea is using vehicles as melee weapons - a flick of the right-stick when you're alongside a car acts like a vehicular punch, and when you've landed enough , you'll get a cinematic sequence showing your prey crashing and burning spectacularly. Plus, there's a focus mode in which you can loose off accurate shots at drivers, tyres, fuel tanks, and so on of vehicles in front or behind you, and you can even "air-jack" cars by driving up behind them and jumping into them. All of which is great fun, as long as you aren't looking for anything remotely cerebral, and with a vast amount of story missions (at any given point, you can choose between several) plus countless sub-missions, this is a meaty game that could keep you occupied for months, Perhaps Vin should give up the day job.
Summary: Perhaps Vin should give up the day job.
