TeamXbox writes: "In addition to being a bona fide movie star, Vin Diesel might be the first real video game star. He has not only lent his voice and likeness to The Wheelman and Chronicles of Riddick – essentially working as a full-fledged digital actor – but has been a crucial person behind the scenes with his own development house, Tigon studios.
Vin is at the center of Midway's new action driving game The Wheelman as the nominal character. Vin – or rather, you – is a contract getaway driver, making money as a mercenary driver. The game's action takes place mostly behind the wheel, but you will get out on foot and wield some heavy weaponry in the open-world environment.
Midway brought the game by our offices recently for us to get a real hands-on feel for the driving. Unfortunately we didn't get to do too much on-foot action other than running from one car to the next, but we got a pretty decent taste of what lies at The Wheelman's core: serious action packed driving."
