There is only two things that keeps me from giving a perfect 10 to this game. First, Riddick move very strangely. Maybe it's because the designer wanted to give movement a more realistic feels, but crouching and leaning seems to be a little awkward. You expect to see an hallway, instead, your movement brings you directly in the middle of the hallway (directly in front of your ennemy). The second thing is more of a technical issue. The game constently makes random access to the disk (you can hear the XBox drive going back and forth). After one or two hours of gameplay, the XBox will be sick of this and will generate "read" errors, forcing you to turn your XBox off. I saw this problem on 3 Xbox (including mine). Programmers should be more careful when they do disk access. The XBox is not a "technical perfection" (what do you expect for 200$). It's not the best DVD drive around you know. Besides that, the game is great. It's a prison experience like you have never seen before.
