Wheelman is a single-player action-adventure game developed by Tigon Studios for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Windows users. In this game, players assume the role of Milo Burik, an international undercover agent who has been tasked to infiltrate a Barcelona gang by posing as a hired driver. The gang then takes him in and lets him know that they are planning a heist. As an undercover agent Milo will have to gather information regarding the covert heist and do his best to evade rival gangs as well as local law enforcement. The protagonist is modeled after Hollywood actor Vin Diesel, whose voice and likeness are also used for Milo Burik.
As the gang’s “wheelman” the player will undertake high-speed driving and high-performance maneuvering using different vehicles in order to accomplish missions. There are 105 side missions in addition to the 31 story missions in the game. Aside from the driving-oriented missions, there are also tasks that must be undertaken on foot. Players get to use different types of guns to aid them in the missions. The car chases the player will undertake are inspired by action sequences from Hollywood movies.
The game features several types of vehicles, including motorcycles, semi trucks, and muscle cars such as the Pontiac G8. Players will go through narrow alleyways and perform driving maneuvers and tricks such as drifting.
