Summary: Half Life, Gears of War, and now this game are the only 3 games that i've played so far that has took my gaming experience outside of gaming, and made me feel as if I was playing in a movie. I liked the stealth action in this game better than the stealth action in the Metal Gear Solid and Splinter Cell series. This game is just that atmospheric, really putting you in the shoes of Riddick, and the game play is great. Kudo's to the team that put this game together.
Summary: This is a great stealth game, with sharp writing and great graphics. It's a mature story told in a very cinematic way, much longer than you would expect and with quite a bit of action for your dollar. It's not backwards-compatible with the XBox 360 so those of you thinking of moving up might want to think ahead and pick up Dark Athena instead, but XBox users won't find a better first-person single-player title on the system.
Summary: FPS. This is based on the Chronicles of Riddick series. This takes place between the movie Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick. Riddick get captured and thrown into a jail. The object of the game is to escape the prison planet. Lots of stealth kills and action gun based kills. This game is a bit difficult and very dark in many cases. I dont highly recommend this game. I bought it because i like chronicles of riddick.
Summary: I can honestly say this was my favorite xbox game The graphics were incredible, there as good as 360 without a doubt. The story, weapons and controls are all flawless!!! Buy this game today!!!
Summary: Still have the old Xbox ? Didn't pick this one up ? This game is worth brushing off the dust & reconnecting the old system. How it wasn't backwards compatible and where the updated version for 360 currently is...I can't even begin to fathom. Visuals - Best ever on the Xbox. Immersion - Beyond compare. I found myself surviving for inordinately long spans of time after "Starting to think like Riddick would." Controls/shooting mechanic - As good as Halo if not better.
Summary: The Chronicles of Riddick- Escape from Butcher Bay After the success of the movies, Riddick Trilogy (Pitch Black/ The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury/ The Chronicles of Riddick) , it is destined to have a video game to go along with it. Luckily, this game did not follow the storyline of the movie. This game had perfect graphics for it's time and had near perfect gameplay. This is one of the very few movie games that actually turned out to be any good.
Summary: I was a huge fan of Pitch Black and its 2 sequels, plus I love XBOX games so it was a no brainer that this game was on my to buy list. The game is fun and challenging and has an interesting story to boot, even more so if you're a fan of the franchise. Riddick is actually voiced by Vin Diesel so don't dread. The game was basically created to promote and cash in on the movie Chronicles of Riddick that was released the same year.
Summary: Okay, so there are a ton of reviews that say this game is awsome and so on. Well, personally I didn't really like it that much. I first got the game because everyone went on about how wonderful it was. I loved the movie, and thought the game would be pretty cool. At first I found it interesting, and the graphics were quite excellent. However, after playing for a while I found the game a bit repetative. Maybe I just don't games where I have to be stealthy, lol.
Review – Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay

Conclusion: You know Jay, you are being just plain unfair to Cyril. When i think of three truly great thespian performances of all time I always think of: Sir Alec Guinness in The Bridge Over the River Kwai, Marlon Brando in On the Waterfront and of course Vin Diesel in Find Me Guilty.

Summary: The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay on Xbox is not just a really long title. It's a very challenging game that makes you think. You can play two ways. Either go for stealth and take enemies out quietly in true Riddick fashion (See Pitch Black or Chronicles of Riddick on DVD for examples), or you can go all-out-who-cares and just kill everyone you see. No, this isn't meant for kids, and five minutes into the gameplay you'll know why.
