Riddick and attempt escape from the sector's most impenetrable prison planet, in this action game that explores the brooding anti-hero's early adventures. Next time be sure to ask your mommy's permission before playing. I don't normally like first-person-shooters. The other are rare graphical glitches. Maybe it's just because I'm a big Riddick fan though it took me years to finally decide to get this game. No such feeling of a really smart lone-warrior that can be dead, but keeps himself a notch before the death.
Future programmers will look to Riddick as the game wherein vinyl really got together. As for the technical aspect of the game, you won't be disappointed: the graphics are of Doom 3 quality, featuring shadow-smoothing not present in said benchmark game; the sound effects are crisp and clean, and the top-notch voice-acting makes the game a lot more vibrant: Vin Diesel gives Riddick a lot of personality through his voice, as does Ron Perlman to the Valance character. But all in all, I really loved this game, which is saying a lot since it's really not my usual style. I also think the original reelase had a bit better color schema. No thought of enemies being smart in any game after it.
The crashes suck the fun out of this game. This is how every first person shooter should be made nowadays. Criticizing this game based on the fact that it contains bad language and realistic violence may be the most imbecilic thing I've ever heard. Role playing is somewhat restricted, but there are plenty of things you can do in this game as you take on the role as Riddick. But there's something about Riddick. You also get to unlock conceptual art. A full-fledged, stand-alone adventure in itself, Escape From Butcher Bay also serves as a prequel to 2000's sci-fi thriller Pitch Black, which first featured Diesel as Riddick, and to the higher-profile 2004 follow-up film,The Chronicles of Riddick, released concurrently with the game.
The action is exciting; the stealth is fun, the environments have a nice, gritty industrial edge. Shame on the distributor, and don't reward them for sitting on top of the patch. Rounding up, this game is 'a jewel lost in the mud of mediocrity'. The game is beautiful, well put together and has some great features. However, to experience such perfection, one needs a deep understanding of the world settings, the story, and finally of Riddick himself.
As it stands, the game is mediocre. Although the action plays from a first-person perspective by default, the viewpoint switches to third-person in order to accommodate certain more athletic tasks, such as shimmying across a ledge or making difficult a jump. There is no such other cosmo-hitman game like this. If there will be a hero, Riddick will be! It's wonderful how it starts out all slow and casual and gradually grows into an intense and thrilling action filled experience. . A free version of OpenGl can be found on-line by just typing it in a search engine such as google. Feels like a mix between Splinter Cell, Theif and Half Life.
Vinny does an exellent job with voice acting, as does the rest of the cast. Sneaking, shooting or just One of the best action games I have played. If you're ever looking for a great action experience, play this game, without any doubt. I bought this game because I love the movies and Vin Diesel isn't bad either. This may be the most moronic thing I have ever read inside a game review. However, to experience such perfection, one needs a deep understanding of the world settings, the story, and finally of Riddick himself. When in stealth mode, the first-person view has a blue tint.
Good: An item in used but good condition. At about 10 hours long, the lack of multiplayer limits replay value, save some special moments. Go play Solitaire or My Little Pony or Jeopardy, not a game based on a violent movie which I will bet you hated as well, oh geez what a surprise. No such feeling of a really smart lone-warrior that can be dead, but keeps himself a notch before the death. My first impression of the game however, was that it would probably just be another shooter with stealth elements, except this time you're playing as the infamous Riddick. Lots of options - hide in the shadows, sneak up behind your enemies, or pull out a gun and go crazy. Keeps surprising you to the end.
With a variety of skills and abilities available to them at nearly any point, players must choose how they will conquer the game's different challenges. I like the voice work and the graphics, especially the shadows, look great. It was a shocker at the time and still under rated to this day, even though I see the ratings no one has really heard of it. The graphics engine is quite similar to the more recent Doom 3 engine, though it seems to have put it to a much more effective use. Feels like a mix between Splinter Cell, Theif and Half Life. When it came out I think I played it 3 or 4 times over because the story was stellar, game play was very immersive and original at the time. The game features numerous interesting subquests that breathe some air to the linearity of the main plot, and the plot itself, while far-fetched, is entertaining in the least, and blends perfectly well with the game's mixture of close-combat and skullduggery.
