There's no doubt that The Wheelman packs its fair share of flaws. Mission objectives are repetitive, the sections on foot are lacking in any form of depth, and the city of Barcelona feels almost lifeless in comparison to, say, Liberty City.
But that doesn't prevent this from being quite the gem. It seems to be held together by that unnervingly fantastic level of fun that most games unfortunately lack. And for that alone, The Wheelman stands as one you should at least try.
