"It's Riddick!"
5 stars"

Ever dreamt that it would be possible to be like Riddick? Well, this game gives you an opportunity to be the most wanted criminal in the entire galaxy! With lots of sharp pointy objects to play with, it is a gaming experience like no other, and the storyline is great! Ever wondered what happend before that monster infested dark planet in Riddicks first apperance, Pitch Black? Well, this game covers a lot of ground about the past of Richard B Riddick…

This one surprised me. On the surface, The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena looks like your everyday first-person shooter and you'll probably think that for a little while at the beginning of the game, too, but after you play it for a little while, you won't be able to put the controller down. It could have easily been the next Xbox 360 game that everyone must own. What makes Assault on Dark Athena special is that it is actually two games in one. You get a remake of Escape from Butcher Bay that features vastly updated graphics and some tweaked gameplay segments. Assault on Dark Athena plays almost exactly the same as Butcher Bay but with some new gameplay mechanics thrown into the mixing pot to make the experience still feel undeniably fresh. Overall this is a game to own for all who played the original on the xbox and for anyone who have never played a Riddick game before. A solid 4 stars

"Good but not great."

Purchased on Mighty Ape

First things first, this game kicks ass. Its hugely enjoyable both the updated Butchers Bay and Assault on Dark Athena. How ever the only thing I thought spoiled the expierence was the AI, but on the whole this game amazing.


The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena not only challenges players to survive Butcher Bay, engaging them in an all new single-player experience, but for the first time in the Riddick universe also allows them to fight for their lives amidst intense multi-player combat. The game introduces the ominous Merc-ship Dark Athena, which stalks the dark reaches of space like a ravenous spider, searching for any helpless prey it can find to feast upon. Players must face a large bloodthirsty operation led by the dreaded Captain Revas and her slaves-turned-controllable combat drones, storm through death-defying events and battle fierce enemies in a fight for their survival and their freedom.

First released in 2004, The Chronicles of Riddick game features an original storyline that provides insight into the mythology of Universal Pictures' films The Chronicles of Riddick and the cult classic Pitch Black, which first introduced Vin Diesel as enigmatic anti-hero Riddick. The game blends action and stealth elements, as players navigate Riddick through the harsh environments of dank tunnels, dimly lit corridors, and other hazardous areas filled with guards, savage inmates and deadly creatures that prowl the darkness.

  • Multiple forms of combat - Unique blend of first-person range and melee combat with stealth kills and counter-attacks
  • Atmospheric and cinematic first person shooter - Great story telling in sci-fi environments handled with AAA Hollywood treatment for an immersive journey through Vin Diesel’s blockbuster universe
  • Multiplayer modes - Variety of fast-paced multiplayer and online options available for the first time in the Riddick franchise
  • Bonus material -Escape from Butcher Bay, considered as one of the best games of 2004, has been re-mastered and will be included along with The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena
