Images of Wheelman

Midway has sent out the 720p versions of the Wheelman images we published last week, plus adding one or two new ones. The game looked pretty promising judging from the videos, and Vin Diesel's performances in games has been pretty good so far.

A friend of mine is on the QA/testing team for this game - He hasn't said many good things about it!
QA/testing teams usually are under standard non-disclosure. If he wants to keep his job he shouldn't be talking about it with you or anybody else.

He didn't disclose details - just said to avoid it ;)

Exotic yet boring looking locations? Check.

Shitty bullet trails for that XTRA AWESOMENESS!!!! RAGR!! Check.

Bad explosion effects? Check.

Invincible cars that handle bad but that's okay because they can crash through everything. Check.


At least now we can say this gen caught up with last gen now.
We are finally seeing games as bad as the crap spewed out last gen WITH all the checklist ticked off.

Oh one more.

GTA4 coming out soon so 98% of gamers won't give a damn about any other game for at least a month so why are they even releasing this. Check.

Ugly bloom, ugly glowing textures, average or below average geometric detail and effects...

The videos looked to have really bad gameplay.

Let's not forget the bizzaro world physics where your car acts like it has the mass of an oil tanker and every other car acts like a cardboard box made of rubber.

get your point though...

Lol, the devs are brave releasing screens like this. If I was them I'd be keeping quiet about the game then sneaking it out onto the shelves. At least then they'd get a few curious buyers.

I can see this one filling bargain bins around the country.

This game looks awfull. From the bland, empty and lifeless streets, to the horrible car physics and so-so graphics.

Nope, not all that excited for this one.

    aphex187 The one thing they did wrong was open a hell of a lot of buildings and added too many towns which really kills performance in game. (3 Hours ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 on the game only because of the lack of content. The Mod did more and gave me more than SA has ever done which is a shame because it truly has a lot of potential imo. (3 Hours ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 @droezelke: I think it will but in a very scaled down way, it's what they want isn't it those big bucks from console gamers. Then again with the slow pacing of the PC who knows, i've totally given up (3 Hours ago)
