Wheel­man demo

Sun­day 17 May 2009 00:18

This isn't about Jonathan Ross and Aman­da Lear, it's about Vin Diesel and An­toni Gaudí. While it's nice to see some­thing else than Amer­i­can cities in a game, the big dif­fer­ence is that in Wheel­man Barcelona looks like a race­track with card­board build­ings on the sides, while GTA IV man­ages to cap­ture the vibe of NYC. Hav­ing played a lot of GTA IV Mafiya Work, I can't not com­pare Wheel­man to that. And then GTA IV is bet­ter. You don't need ve­hi­cle melee when physics and the map de­tails can pro­vide you with spec­tac­u­lar car in­ter­ac­tion with­out it. Just hit a curb in Lib­er­ty City go­ing flat out and you know what I mean. And ob­vi­ous­ly I was try­ing to avoid hit­ting small trees and bus stop shel­ters in Barcelona be­cause that's what I'm used to in Lib­er­ty City, but you don't need to do that be­cause in Barcelona stuff's a bit more brit­tle. And then the tricks to get some cool shots that aren't cool any­more be­cause of the tricks. And AirJack? Is this Wolver­ine or some­thing? There will be some au­di­ence want­i­ng this, but I rather get cool stuff the hard way and be sur­prised by it once in a while. If I want easy I can go watch a movie hold­ing a SIXAXIS. Or even some­thing with Vin Diesel if that's the point.
