DRM spoils very good game
- huge DRM issue, supposedly allowing only 3 installs -- this is just pathetic considering that many people try to resolve game issues with the uninstall-reinstall strategy. For $50, this shouldn't be there at all. 2 points taken away (and should be more)
- some sound issues
- only the newest NVIDIA drivers seem to resolve crashing and freezing issues
- fake aim taking (slight zooming) instead of ironsights on weapons
- nothing really new since 2004 in terms of game mechanics (to me appeared somewhat stiff and the movement is like walking semi-drunk especially in the beginning of the game)
- story is still very good but somewhat less captivating than the first Riddick
Overall, the best feature of this game is the gameplay itself (9/10) which offers an immersive experience. It's just too bad that the developer/publisher decided on the really bad DRM strategy that offers a very short-term protection from piracy and long-term bad taste for a huge majority of non-pirating PC users who deserve better than 3 installs limit. The game itself (without the DRM issue) and depending on personal preferences deserves to be rated anywhere between 7.5 and 9/10. The bad DRM decision for the PC version would suggest either waiting for some time till the DRM is removed (which happens many times via a patch after the initial launch time is over), skipping the game altogether, or looking to maybe a different platform with a less restrictive DRM for this game. Overall score: 6.7/10 (2 points taken for the unreasonable DRM).
