PSX Extreme: The Wheelman Preview

PSX Extreme writes: "Normally, games based on movies are absolutely awful, which is why the world was shocked to experience the greatness that was The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay back in 2004. Granted, it wasn't exactly based on any one particular movie, but it was based on Vin Diesel's film character, Riddick, and made by Diesel's game studio, Tigon. Ever since then, we've been anxiously awaiting the next solid effort by Tigon, and therefore, we bring you this look at The Wheelman, which will be both a movie and a game; it's a "joint project" by MTV Films and Midway/Tigon. It seems like an invigorating combination of Stuntman, Grand Theft Auto and Need for Speed, which is more than enough to pique our interest right off the bat. Provided this one hits the mark, it could be a major sleeper hit; we say "sleeper" because we already have the likes of GTAIV and MGS4 this year, but that doesn't mean The Wheelman can't be excellent in its own right. Cross your fingers."
