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.

  • Excerpt: "It's easily one of the most-impressive games on the Xbox and seems destined to be remembered as the most inspiring collaboration between Hollywood and the gaming industry yet. The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay is one of those exceedingly rare types of games that delivers exceptionally high quality through and through and single-handedly ups the ante for all similar games.

  • Excerpt: "...know who Riddick is then the title of this game might confuse you. Riddick is the character that Vin Diesel plays in the film Pitch Black and its sequel The Chronicles of Riddick. Pitch Black is often seen as one of the breakthrough movies for Vin Diesel. It is a low buget horror/thriler that was well received and sold well on DVD. This prompted the making of The Chronicles of Riddick. A Hollywood blockbuster that was not well recieved when it ...
  • Pros: Great story, good puzzles, often many ways to achieve the objectives set
  • Cons: Short, a big bug on final boss

GOOD FIRST PERSON SHOOTER

5 November 2004
  • 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.
