Wheelman screenshots of Street Showdown Pack DLC -- Barcelona still dull to drive through

More On: Wheelman
From the looks of things, the Vin Diesel-driven Wheelman can't get much more lukewarm in its reception, which sometimes serves as an indicator that a lot of copies are rapidly going the trade-in route.  This may be why, after less than two month on the market, Tigon Studios is racing out some downloadable content available now on Xbox Live Marketplace (and on PlayStation Network starting May 7).

The Free Street Showdown Pack adds the Showdown in Avinguda Del Paral-lel.  The Premium Street Showdown Pack -- which strips you of 400 Microsoft Points or $4.99 on the PS3 -- includes five new street showdown side missions:
  • Showdown in Museu Nacional
  • Showdown in Passeig de Gracia
  • Showdown in Grand Theatre de Liceu
  • Showdown in Cathedral de la Seu
  • Showdown in Placa de Catalunya
Note the theme forming there?  These screenshots make plain the lovely but stunningly samey-looking streets of Barcelona, Spain.
