I'm really hoping it's as good as the first game.

Does it really have Vin Diesels voice. Man, thats annoying. You want to smack him upside the head and tell him to wake up.

Can not really judge it from the videos. Gonna need to play to really see...However, it is evident in multiplayer mode that if you catch a lag spike your most likely a gonner, lol.

ptich black mode looks insane! cant wait. i think its a must for pc. i played it on the 360 just to get a feel for the game, but controler sucks balls in fps. pc will dominate online!!!

@LtReviews dude im not trying to disrespect or anything but usualy a multiplayer consists of a deathmatch, team deathmatch, capture the flag, the stuff the guys mentioned

The multiplayer looks fairly standard, but that's not really a bad thing, as long as they do it well. I like these level designs, though. They've got a pretty slick look, and the lighting effects are really well-done. Looking good.

@(whoever says this multiplayer looks generic) Ok, I'll level with you, what kind of multiplayer game mode did you have in mind that you would consider "non generic"?

Eh, all the modes look extremely generic. Except pitch black mode, it reminds me of playing as a spy in Chaos Theory, so i'll play that mode, but thats about it. I'm still looking forward to the game tho. I'm a big fan of the stealth games, lol.

I love these video interviews. Good info here. Too bad I already finished "Riddick" the first time around, and don't have an urge to replay it.

The MP plays like an early UT game. I don't like that. I've played the demo already, and it's somewhat enjoyable, but the MP leaves a little to be desired, so I'm kinda torn on getting this game. I doubt it though.

as always can't wait, multiplayer looks strong

the MP gameplay seems like the classical MP style gameplay which isn't really quite interesting. I mean yeah sure it's an updated version of The Darkness MP, but it's still based on The darkness game and let's just say it wasn't fun. The campaign aspect of the game I'm sure will leave nothing to be desired, but as for the MP...I'm on the edge on this one

The graphic engine seems a bit outdated but it has a great sci-fi story and excellent gameplay

I agree cubiclepwner the ads are kinda like brainwashing especially when you see the same one 4 times in a row

i was lucky to get this today and I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!! haven't dip a whole lot into it, but if you get it from gamestop you get bonus content

Sorry to be a party killer here but the multiplayer aspect of this game looks like more like the child of UT3 and Quake 4 which were fun at the time. It does nothing to further what nearly ever FPS game before it has already done. I would like to see more originality than one gameplay mode from this IP.

this'll be sweet. totally grabbing this when it launches. i loved the 1st and it doesnt play on 360 and for some reason the PC copy doesn't work anymore (i swear they did it so you HAVE to buy this). anyways, i'll be glad to play butcher bay again with all the new content

I dislike how there is propaganda at the beginning of a lot of the shooting games on all video game websites. It is truly disturbing to me, and it seems that I'm the only one who sees this.

graphics engine looks a little weak. Gameplay looks amazing. Definitely would love to play.

The multiplayer looks amazing,they really put the work into this game, i hope you get to climb things as riddick and drop down on guys that would be great, I cant wait to try the pitch black mode, get your guns, turn on your flashlights, they wont save you, riddicks coming
