2 December 2009
Excerpt: When presented with the choice of two games, 2004's Escape from Butcher Bay and 2009's Assault on Dark Athena, only one thing ran through our mind: how has it been five years since Riddick dazzled on the Xbox?

Cons: New content is cliche and tedious, Troublesome artificial intelligence, Multiplayer feels tacked on.
