The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena Review
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?
Summary: Assault on Dark Athena is a great followup to the award-winning Escape from Butcher Bay title landing just-shy of perfect due to what I can only describe as a lack of “balls”.

Pros: Two games in one – Brutal action and great stealth
Cons: Graphically lacking – Not one for non Riddick fans
