Wheelman Review
Quote:
If the idea of a crazy, almost stuntman-like car-based action game sounds like your kind of thing, Wheelman shouldn't be passed up.

I would think twice about buying this as other sites haven't rated it nearly as highly as this:

Everyone can have their own opinion, so the IGN review is fair enough, but I'd be surprised if the average ends up anywhere near that review score. I'd hope metacritic and the like will end up with the game scoring in the low 80s.

Yes I was about to say its nothing like Saints Row, whoever said it needs a reality check there Wink

Indeed, tis a interesting review. Fair score to be honest as the demo didn't impress me set from the in-car action which is superb. The only thing about Wheelman is the in-car action and the ability to nab other cars in motion which is fun stuff.

The side missions seem all repetitve and all the same, so the lasting appeal isn't going to be great for this game. I'm gathering its going to 7 rated scores across the board for Wheelman.

    Tom Orry say: On-foot combat isn't so great, but it's not the game's focus. if the developer wont this game to be great they need to focus on all thing.

    I don't agree, rico. Greatness can indeed focus on one aspect. Earth Defense Force 2017 has laughable graphics, negligible story, and zero variety, but remains the most fun I have had on my 360. What it does is let me shoot hundreds of enemies, and makes no apologies for only offering that! In a similar way, I expect to have nothing but fun from Wheelman. The IGN review in particular seems to have completely missed the point, wishing for more plot.

    All that being said, if on-foot combat is poor then it would behoove the developers to not make us endure as much of it as it sounds like we have to. Taking into account the review from eurogamer, whom I trust, as well as vg.com, whom I also trust, I think I will stick with my plans to rent that I have had ever since the demo pleasantly surprised me. (I do not trust IGN, the oft-quoted "You can't spell ignorant without I-G-N" exists for a reason.)
