The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena

 

A repackaged remake of a good movie game?!? When The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay came out back in 2004 it was the arguably the best game on...

Can't beat the value ; Hand to hand fights are great

Some graphical hiccups ; Multiplayer feels a little dated

Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena

 

The sheer brilliance of The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay eluded many discerning gamers simply because it was associated with the Chronicles of Riddick films. This was a hugely disappointing realization for now-defunct Vivendi Games,...

The finest first-person shooter experience since Bioshock. It is a great pity that so many people will pass this game by.

The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena

 

The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay was one of the greatest games available on the original Xbox. It still holds up fantastically today, both in game conventions and graphics. Starbreeze has revived the Riddick franchise with the release...

Continuation of the popular Riddick saga, which has many fans ; The original full version of Escape From Butcher Bay is included ; Decent stealth-action if you're looking for that sort of thing

Too much darkness! Riddick is great with the dark, but come on ; Graphics are not as impressive for their time as they were in the previous game ; The game becomes far too linear at times and focuses far too much on stealth ; Lackluster multiplayer modes

The music is also quite dull, as well as the voice acting. Revas and Riddick are voiced satisfactorily, but considering all Vin Diesel has to do is speak in an almost seductive purr, how could he really screw up playing himself?

Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena

 

A remake of great game, coupled with a great follow-up. What more could you want?

Visually, the game is impressive, and I found that I enjoyed Dark Athena's different locations more so than the drab, but fitting, interiors of Butcher Bay. I won't say that the level design is necessarily better; it really depends on what you like to...

The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena

 

Crouching silently in the darkness, steely fingers wrapped covetously around your steely implement, you alone can see, you alone are filled with the terrible and wonderful knowledge of impending violence. You are filled with purpose; you are a...

The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena is a great re-packaging of a great game, but loses its sense of character towards the end.

The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena

 

Vin Diesel's movie career might be floundering, but at least he's still starring in great games.

Not a decade ago, Vin Diesel was an up-and-coming action superstar with surprise blockbusters like The Fast and The Furious, Pitch Black and its sequel, The Chronicles of Riddick.

I'm Hell's messenger. Name's Riddick.

 

The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena is a respectable repackaging of a five year old game with significant expansion.

It's fun to feel like a ridiculous badass sometimes, and Riddick has it down to a thickheaded science.

The Chronicles of Riddick: The Assault on Dark Athena

 

The Chronicles of Riddick: The Escape From Butcher Bay was one of the biggest surprises of the last generation of game consoles. While even games based on good movies tend to be terrible more often than not, here was a game set to release alongside a...

One of the previous generation's best games, now with new campaign and multiplayer modes ; Some truly wonderful gameplay ; Graphics still look great even by today's standards ; The game does more justice to the Riddick character and universe than even...

The latter "planetside" section of the new Assault on Dark Athena campaign is seemingly designed to infuriate players ; Multiplayer has connection issues and silly-looking character animation ; No commentary

If you enjoy action games and didn't play Riddick the first time around, you need to get yourself a copy. If you already played through Butcher Bay, Dark Athena may not be worth your while unless you really loved it.

The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault On Dark Athena Review

 

Playstation fans can finally rejoice knowing that The Chronicles of Riddick has made it's appearance on a Sony console after waiting nearly five years. The newest game in the series, The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault On Dark Athena, takes place...

Dark Athena on its own would be somewhat mediocre thanks to its difficult (read cheating) AI, a sloppy weapon aiming system, and a nearly non-existent storyline. If you can look past all of that, you will actually find a decent game that helps to give...

The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena

 

It's hard not to love Richard B. Riddick; effortlessly cool, sharply intelligent and a completely homocidal brick shithouse to boot. The sociopathic, silver-eyed, anti-hero of the movie Pitch Black and it's various spin-offs is one of the best Sci-fi...
