The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Escape from Butcher Bay is a difficult game to get a grip on because it tears me in two directions. On the one hand, the story is fantastic, presentation is amazing, the gameplay solid, and the visuals are some of the best to date.

  • Excerpt: Butcher Bay, with its dreary facilities and rough clientele, sounds quite like a holiday camp near Grimsby. The vacations here, though, are permanent and far more unpleasant. Even Richard B. Riddick, our sociopathic anti-hero, can’t wait to escape.

Into Liquid Sky
24 May 2005
  • Excerpt: With the surprise success of the sci-fi movie Pitch Black , Vin Diesel's antihero, Riddick, quickly became fodder for a film sequel. It's a shame that the movie sequel tried to make Riddick into some lonewolf savior, weakening his violent antihero image.
  • Pros: Awesome graphics, Solid voice cast, Melee and stealth gameplay is well implemented, Sidequests add to the main game
  • Cons: No multiplayer, Short length

  • Excerpt: I’m going to start this review with a little story: A few years ago, at an event for a game, I observed Vin Diesel stroll into the place with his entourage and, after playing that night’s featured title, proclaim that he had just founded a game studio.

  • Excerpt: You are Richard B. Riddick, the star of the best Xbox game released to date, The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay. Starbreeze Studios (Enclave) has not only managed to break the bad movie-based video game stigma, but has also made a legit contender for Game of the Year in the process.

  • Excerpt: I don’t think I’m wrong if I say that the number of great games based on licensed movie brands can be counted on one hand. There are plenty of perfectly okay ones, but a scary number of truly horrendous ones too.

  • Summary: In most cases, licensed video games are rushed to retail in order to capitalize on the buzz surrounding the major motion picture on which it is based on. This is one of those rare cases where the complete opposite is actually true about the video game and motion picture role sequencing.

  • Excerpt: Not a believer? As soon as you boot up the game and see the menu screen, a menu screen that someone actually put time into, you'll believe. And it only gets better from there.
