The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena Review

VideoGamer.com
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? At the time Starbreeze's first-person action game was a technical marvel, doing things with the Xbox that didn't seem possible.

  • Conclusion: The second campaign is much the same, with some focus later on this remote grenade-launching type gun and the type of puzzles it can solve, but it’s no portal rifle. And another thing I found funny was how easy it was to locate the point in the second campaign where the developers planned a conclusion, realized they had time to spare, and then built a few more hours of gameplay.

  • Excerpt: When I first started reviewing games I struggled with whether or not the success of a sequel’s predecessor should be taken into account when reviewing it. Is it really fair to judge what is essentially a brand new game partially on what came before it?

  • Conclusion: Assault on Dark Athena is the new story-driven content here, and it takes place after the events of Butcher Bay. It retains some of its predecessor's strengths, and even improves on a few of them. Visually, the sequel compares favorably to any current action game while still incorporating the fantastic lighting and shadows for which the original was known. The new character models are authentically expressive, and their bodies and faces animate fluidly.
  • Pros: Butcher Bay is still amazing, Fantastic lighting and shadows, Great character models and voice acting .
  • Cons: New content is cliche and tedious, Troublesome artificial intelligence, Multiplayer feels tacked on.

  • Excerpt: When Escape from Butcher’s Bay came out in 2004, everyone figured that the game was a quick cash-in to market the Riddick brand, with Vin Diesel gaining an Executive Producer credit to make a few …
