Wheelman

I finally went out and bought Vin Diesel’s Wheelman. It is set in Barcelona, awesome!

At least, some weird Frankenstein version of Barcelona. The map is a bit screwy, things are slightly out of place. I had read the game designers claimed they did so to make the game more dynamic, which is weird – Barcelona has one of the best city plans in the world, but these guys think they can do better than Ildefons Cerdà. So far it’s just confusing.

The first mission didn’t allow me to stray, but as soon as I dropped off the woman thief in Raval, I drove straight to work, to the World Trade Center. I wanted to drive underneath the hotel building, to the north building, up the stairs, and jump straight off the side, onto a ferry.

But they put FENCES in front of the World Trade Center!!! I can’t get through!

I guess I’ll have to take an actual plane and take the subway to work again on Monday…

Still, I already like the game. The effects are awesome, if comical. I already smashed 15 police cars into bits.

What is up with that casino just smack next to the World Trade Center though ? Hello ? It’s not like it is that far to the two towers….

With the right amount of suspension of disbelief, Metal Gear Solid 4 is – again – totally awesome.

I finished the first section, and the game is telling me “It’s past 1:00 AM, isn’t it time to take a break ?”

This game, as usual, nails all the details – though the dialogue is still annoyingly out of flow. But it didn’t take me long to invest in my favourite shooting weapon – a sniper rifle with a laser scope.
