The protagonist, Milo Burik (a digitized Vin Diesel), is a driver who comes out of his retirement to save a woman from his past which leads him to Barcelona, Catalonia, and right into the middle of a gang war.
The game is set in an open ended world modeled after Barcelona, full of destructable objects, alleyways, shortcuts through office blocks and a total of 31 story missions and 105 side missions. While most missions are driving-oriented there are also foot missions which are played from a third person and incorporated a cover system similar to the one used in Gears of War 2.
The best chance at playing Wheelman at recommended sys specs on a 1920x1080 screen resolution will be if your PC has at least the GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB/Radeon X800 GTO graphics card. The CPU required to meet recommended requirements is either an AMD Opteron 175 or Intel Core 2 Duo T7700 2.4GHz processor. This type of gaming rig will deliver you around the 60 Frames per second. Make sure your GPU can run DirectX 9 or Wheelman won’t run. To summarise, Wheelman needs around a 12 year old PC to play at recommended settings.
