    Assault on Dark Athena is one fantastic package, with the all-time classic Escape from Butcher Bay and an all new campaign it is definately worth your money. Let's start with Butcher Bay, as...

    I don't think this game deserves most of the stick it gets, some of it yes but it certainly makes a great follow up.

    It's great to get two games here, but the original hasn't aged very well and the new game is average.....at best.

    When I first played the original 'Chronicles Of Riddick' game on the Xbox, I was floored. It was that rare game that took it's cues from the movies and wasn't a complete disaster. The original game ha...

    Equally great to the previous one, if not better.

    Assault on Dark Athena sees the great comeback of Vin Diesel as the main protagonist and the voice acting will recharge you as Vin Diesel shoots in cheesy threats here and there. The best one being at...

    Critics are wrong! Give this game a chance!

    When something is different people will automatically start to bash it before they can begin to realize how great something actually is. This game was developed brilliantly and was the first game that...

    Busts out of the gate as if on crack, but overdoses and then goes through some withdrawals towards the end.

    Escape from Butcher Bay, which is included in The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, is a wonderful remastering of the original on the Xbox. It still holds up graphically to many other gam...

    While the 2004 classic, Butcher Bay, is still as good as ever, it's brought down by the uninspired sequel.

    Oh how I love compilations. Two games for the price of one! What could be better? Well, three, or in the case of The Orange Box, five, but Starbreeze hasn't been ungenerous either and when you buy The...
