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.

how can a carboard box me made out of rubber? lol
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.

    scoobs0688 @Moonwalker: was it? Care to link, I don't think I saw that footage. Pretty sure they've only shown PC. (5 Hours ago)
  • bleachedsmiles
    bleachedsmiles either way, this new one's not doing anything for me at all at the moment...really disappointing showings so far (6 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog Have to agree to disagree on that one...thought they where awful in pretty much every sense. I liked the first one though. (6 Hours ago)
  • bleachedsmiles
    bleachedsmiles @KORNdog: fable 2 was great. And fable 3 has some of the best side quests. The writing is still top notch in all 3 of them too. (7 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Yeah true, but so far the combat looks really cool. I too wished for a normal singleplayer RPG, not this. But we'll see with the beta. (7 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @bleachedsmiles: unless it still played like fable 2 and 3 in which case it would have been shit (7 Hours ago)
