Riddick was one of those hidden gems for me on the original xbox. Didn't expect much from a movie game but it turned out to be the best movie related game to date in my opinion. I just wish someone would go back and give the original knights of the old republic games this type of treatment.

I loved the movies but never got to play the game. I played the demo for this and have to say that it is pretty sweet.

tried out the demo for ps3 yesterday. I kinda liked it. might even buy it. I'm glad there are so many resent swedish-produced games that are actually good. like BF:bad company, Mirrors edge, and now this.

The graphics look much smoother than Butcher Bay with many more subtleties and facial expressions. It doesn't resemble Doom 3 at all. From the looks of it, this will be a worthy heir to the greatest action/stealth game ever created.

The movie itself was a bomb, not to mention the game.

Vin Diesel was made for this role. The Riddick is a bad mother...... However I was really underwhelmed by the demo :/

I really wouldn't be surprised if this game gets band. Especially considering the UK government's Daily Mail style paranoia about youth knife crime. I just hope I'm wrong, as the demo was one of the best gaming experiences I have had this generation.

The graphics look good standard and so does the melee combat. Looking forward to its release!

Ok lets see we are getting The game, multiplayer and Escape from butcher bay with updated graphics. Honestly when any videogame based on a movie shows up I avoid like the plague but this one I have to get it on the first day of its release.

You all should be buying this game if I have to mug your grandmother to get the money. The first one was simply one of the finest video game experiences of not only its own time, but of all time and will still kick the crap out of most games of its kind coming out today. Seriously. If you missed it last time, don't make the same mistake twice.

The graphics look the same as the original...it just goes to show how ahead of the curb Starbreeze was back then. I dunno if the sequel can surpass Butcher Bay (classic game) but i definitely have high hopes for this game.

easily the best movie themed video game of all time. Two prequels to the movies...and the entire ORIGINAL riddick game...just an amazing deal all around. This was easily the BEST xbox game next to Ninja Gaiden, and this remake / sequel might just be another one of the best of this generation. You would be a fool not to get this game, people. Seriously, it's amazing.

This isn't very impressive to me, graphically. I love the game, don't get me wrong. But, the Xbox version, compared to this, there isn't a whole lot of a difference, maybe some smoother edges. Either way, I'll probably get it.

I hope it has an easy installation. I am sick and tired of all this GTA IV-Empire Total War installation sh*t!

it looks good but the producers are talking about stuff like we havent seen it before i.e drag body and not being able to get weapons(like previous riddick)

I love that gun idea, great that the game will be about stealth and hand to hand combat instead of shooting game. In first riddick game they had fingerprint sensors in guns that shocked unauthorized user, that was great too.

Well unless every frame of footage was faked, this is no simple port. One of the best games, certainly the best movie tie-in, remade adn added to. ahhh life is good.
