Eurogamer: The Wheelman - First Impressions

Eurogamer writes: "The last time Vin Diesel got involved in videogame production, it all turned out rather nicely. Arguably 2004's game of the year, The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay demonstrated in breathtaking fashion how to make good use of a movie licence. Billed by Midway as "the true driving force" behind The Wheelman, the bald beefcake and his Tigon Studio cohorts are hoping to have a similarly dizzying effect on The Wheelman, Midway Newcastle's "ultimate car-chase experience" due for release on 360, PS3 and PC this autumn.

Produced in tandem with the MTV Films/Paramount movie of the same name, it's all about going on the run from the US mafia, driving like a loony around Barcelona, and shooting lots of people in the name of protecting a woman from your inevitably dark past. Presumably, you're a bit fond of this lovely lady, so it's "your job to set the factions against each other to cover a daring heist", and come out with deathly cool one-liners in that famously deadpan drawl that only Vin Diesel and people with throat cancer can." (PC, PS3, The Wheelman, Xbox 360)
