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.

About the game

  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 Exploding throwing stars are my favorite new weapon so far. (0 minute ago)

    Phaethon360 @digi_matrix: Missions give you a lot of ways to take them on. Melee combat gets better with upgrades. Enjoying it a lot so far, but I enjoyed Dead Island too. (0 minute ago)
  • digi_matrix
    digi_matrix Dying Light looks so predictable, like such a known quantity. The open world and mission structure looks boring. The only fun seems to be in the parkour, not even the combat where u need 3-5 headshots (1 Hour ago)

  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 @droezelke: Like Dead Island it's better with co-op. Solo it's way better than Dead Island tho (and as a game as well so far). (5 Hours ago)
