Escape from Butcher Bay (Xbox)

  • Summary: Whereby other movie adaptions are content to merely regurgitate events players are already familiar with, Escape From Butcher Bay dares to be different by taking us back to the birth of a legend. For long before the hellish events of Pitch Black, there was another similarly bleak world of darkness waiting to piss off everyone's favorite anti-hero.

Can be frustrating and clunky, but Riddick carries it to cult classic status.

  • Summary: Played this a while back and revisited recently as I'm getting hyped for the new movie! Was immediately struck by how unforgiving it is, as a game seemingly built around lurking in the shadows and sneaking your way through enemies the unpredictable and often psychic AI make that incredibly difficult to do. Stealth games since have refined the mechanics (adding instinct modes and radars etc.

GOOD FIRST PERSON SHOOTER

  • Summary: The graphics on first sight are impressive, but they are little dated and appear rough in places. However, this does not depreciate the gameplay. Set in the world of RIDDICK, you work your way through numerous levels, in an attempt to eascape the infamous Butcher Bay prison complex. A selection of both close combat and military hardware, you can either shoot your way through or use stelah with the excellent 'EYE SHINE' enhanced vision.

Good things come in small doses

  • Summary: I really enjoyed playing this game, the blend of stealth, FPS and Beatum up style action creates a new genre of gaming. I would say in a sense that it is like halo and Doom etc. Though these games are pure FPS games unlike Riddick. Most of the gameplay elements work well the ability of shooting out the lights and then to sneak up to a guard and break there neck gives that splinter cell feel especially with the night vision.

Generally Excellent - but too short!

Andy Mackie, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: Chronicles of Riddick is a damn fine game. Both comlpetely immersive and gorgeous to look at, it uses a variety of lighting effects and well rendered models to produce a unique (at least until dm3 arrives) look. The sound is pretty impresive too, and every aspect of your incarceration is covered in (at times) ear shattering precision. The arsenal of weapons availiable to you (eventually) is what you'd expect from an FPS.
