Wheelman is an action-adventure title which stars Vin Diseal as a digitized and voiced character. The game takes place in an open world based on the Barcelona location, in which players engage in driving missions, while also travel on foot in third-person. The game includes 31 story missions, as well as 105 side missions.
Milo Burik is an agent working undercover. His mission is to join a gang in Barcelona and learn about their plans to perform a huge heist.
Wheelman received widely mixed reviews, with an average score of 73%, praised for its driving moves and overall fun by some, while criticized for its story mode and graphics by others.
The 3-star difficulty rank is due to a combination of time required, and some skills. While playing through the story is relatively easy, achieving an S-rank on all side missions can be frustrating at time, as well as time consuming. Still, with enough patience, the Platinum is quite doable for any average player.
Expect roughly between 35-50 hours on this one, depending on your skills and luck with the side missions.
You'll first want to work through the 31 story mode missions. However, it should be noted that the Paulo's Peace, Stavo's Swansong, and Radu's Requiem trophies are missable, due to the fact that you can only kill one boss for each playthrough. So if you're interested in getting all the trophies in one go, make saves when their respective missions, Balance of Power: Lantos Battle, Balance of Power: Chulos Battle, and Balance of Power: Romanian Battle, become available. Once you've completed one, load your save and do the next, until you've gotten all of their respective trophies.
Next, it's time to mop-up all those remaining trophies. Here is where you'll spend the bulk of your time. Performing all 50 cinematic stunt jumps will earn you the Jump In My Car, Dukes Of Barcelona, and White Men Can Jump trophies. Also, destroying 100 cat statues will earn you the Art Critic, Cat Hater, and Wreaking Havok trophies.
With those out of the way, you can move onto completing all 105 side missions with an S-rank, which will unlock the gold trophy, I Live For This stuff, as well as the other stackable 15 trophies. While a vast number of these side missions are quite doable, some can be rather frustrating. Check out the guides under our Links tab for extra tips if you're struggling.
After that, simply mop-up any last few remaining trophies you may need, and you're done!
