The Wheelman Movie

A new "Recover the Documents" trailer depicts a mission from The Wheelman, the upcoming driving action game starring a digitized Vin Diesel. The clip features a foot and motorcycle chase through and beneath the streets of Barcelona accompanied by developer narration and plenty of gunplay and bullet-time. The clip is available on AtomicGamer, FileFront, Gamer's Hell, Gamesonice, and MyGameTrailers.

That looks pretty disappointing IMO. I can see how it might be fun, maybe, but way too linear for an urban driving game--one big, really wide road with no side streets right through the middle of the city. It looks like it would get old. It probably would have made a really cool arcade game ten years ago though, so maybe that will be its charm.

The on-foot combat looked like a pretty weak incarnation of a third person shooter too.

Who knows though. I've only seen a few videos, they may find some ways to change it up yet. Given how impressive Riddick is, it's surprising such a mediocre looking game has his name on it.
