Summary: Chronicles Of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena Takes aim from the continuing of Chronicles Of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay. You play as Riddick once again and fights more mercs and bad guys. The story isn't that bright but it's nice to see the stealth killings again. The graphics are well done and lasted for a good 9 hours. But no one doesn't play multiplayer which made me feel like returning the game.
Escape from Butcher Bay is awesome but it's sequel Dark Athena is disappointing.At least this package has a HD version of Escape from Butcher Bay.

Summary: If you've watched Pitch Black or Chronicles of Riddick,you would know who Riddick is,he is an escaped convict who was convicted of murder but he plays an antihero type of character.Riddick speaks in a very relaxed way and you aren't sure whether to fear him or trust him and he has deadly combat skills and could easily kill anybody who messes with him. CoR Dark Athena actually contains two games,one is a remake of CoR Escape from Butcher Bay.

Summary: I was really excited about buying this game because it seemed like a great opportunity to play a classic game I had missed as well as a new game. My excitement, however, quickly gave way to frustration. While the story and the acting were fine, the gameplay itself is infuriating. I can handle difficult games, but there's something very unsatisfying about having to empty a clip into each foe to take them down. I felt like I was blowing paper wrappers off straws at guys.
Summary: The fact that this contains the phenomenal "butcher bay" gives it an automatic 10. The Dark athena parts are also excellent and have a stronger focus on melee which suits the game very well. The characters aren't as well rounded and interesting as Butcher bay but he extra additions to the mechanics of the game are very welcome.
Summary: Not quite as good as the first Riddick game, but still a very good FPS with a mix of melee and gunplay. Interesting story, good graphics and voice acting. I finished it in about 9 hours, not much point in playing it through again as there's not much in the way of side-quests, secondary objectives or other challenges. Be aware that the story is very dark and some of the content is a bit needlessly sadistic IMO.
