How many sub-GTA clones have to be released before someone finally makes publishers stop

churning out cheap knock-offs? I ask because this Vin Diesel vehicle is a mish-mash of every

bumper and bullet title to have seen the light of day in recent years and, other than some

occasionally entertaining car combat, fails to convince as either a crime-busting caper or

as a wild-driving experience. Playing The Wheelman feels very much like life in the slow lane.
