Tim Hage from Tech Olive writes: "The PC release of Wheelman was something I was both looking forward to and dreading. I knew I had my expectations a little high, expecting quality comparable to recent "GTA clones" such as Saint's Row 2. But at the same time, I knew the game wouldn't be anything stellar, because movie-to-game adaptations hardly are. There where no indications that this game would be exceptional in any way. Yet somehow, I still eagerly awaited the release. It is possible that this game manages to be different. Rather than being based on the movie, the movie is to work as a sequel to the game. I remained hopeful."
