Great game, give it a try

Pros: This game is lots of mindless fun. The voice acting is superb, the action sequences are loads of fun, and first person stealth is quite different. You'll feel like a killing machine once you complete both games on Hard.

Butcher Bay is a very well written game, and for the most part, everything makes sense. Animation (reloads, fist fighting, character animation, scenes with a lot of machinery) is fantastic! Very fluid movements and when you punch somebody in this game, it feels like you're punching them in real life. The executions are nice and brutal as well :)

Cons: Butcher Bay won me over, but Dark Athena was great in the beginning -and then fizzled out in the end. You'll want more, but the game won't deliver.

Dark Athena also has its share of repetitive (and I repeat, REPETITIVE) boss fights.

Online is a drag (even though pitch black is loads of fun).

This game on hard is excruciatingly hard. It's like the enemies have cheats turned on. Very unfair.

Other Thoughts: If you feel like playing something different, get this game. But like the Darkness, it only suits a certain group of people.

Play Riddick Again for the First Time

Pros: First off, it was listed as a daily deal at $39.99! It's the only reason I decided to buy it now instead of at a later date. Escape from Butcher Bay was the single best movie tie in game of all time and it has been remastered beautifully. Even if you played it on the original Xbox, you don't want to miss revisting this classic action stealth game. Dark Athena picks up right where the previous game left off and instantly draws you in. While at first it may feel somewhat repetetive for those who played the first game, it still measures up to it. Stealth action at it's best with a twisted villain and terrific voice acting. The best voice acting I've heard since... Escape from Butcher's Bay!

Cons: Multiplayer feels a bit tacked on, but this shouldn't be how the overall game is judged. A single player game can still be awesome and successful without the need for online or System Link multiplayer. If only the boys making the next KotOR game understood that too.

Other Thoughts: Word is out on another movie chronicling the next chapter in the life of Riddick. I hope it comes out soon!

5/ 5

Pros: -Excellent gameplay. One of the best shooters I've played and it incorporates stealth rather well.
-Two games in one! You can play "Escape from Butcher Bay" from 2004 and the new chronicle, "Assault on Dark Athena". It'll have you playing for awhile.
-Excellent Story and VA.
-Well done multiplyer.

Cons: -BAD netcode. You can expect to run into problems in multiplayer if you don't have a good connection.

Other Thoughts: The muliplayer game itself is great, it's just difficult to work around the inherent lag from the poor netcode.
