Gotta love PC Gamer just done flicking through the news and seen Good Old Games posting and one of them been The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena jumped over to the site created a new account and now downloading it. I can remember playing this game on the original Xbox not that I give too sweet fuck’s about the consoles anymore and loved it, up to the point that one of my dick friends was bothering me to play something else. Clearly he didn’t know shit about games and probable don’t know yet to today why because he’s a idiot. So with that said I have a chance to play it again and this time on the PC witch got redone for Windows 7 the graphics and more.
I got with the game DRM Free that’s right DRM Free, 3 wallpapers, 4 avatars, soundtrack, 2 developer diaries and of course the manual all for $5.00. Steam didn’t have it available and wanted that purchase from them but couldn’t, honestly I don’t care as long as it’s played on the PC. When I’m done with the ridiculous console port of Command and Conquer Red Alert 3 this ones up next.
You are Riddick, the most wanted man in the universe. The enigmatic anti-hero of Riddick is famous, of course, from the runaway sleeper hit of 2000–Pitch Black–and its sequel, The Chronicles of Riddick. This game takes place before either of the movies, filling in some of the backstory of Riddick’s dark and dangerous past. Make a dramatic escape from Butcher Bay, the galaxy’s deadliest prison, in this intense fusion of first-person shooter, fighter, and stealth adventure. There is a rule that licensed games based on movies are typically, well, not too good.
The Chronicles of Riddick does not simply break this rule, it obliterates the rule and dances on its still-warm ashes. Some even say that this game has greatly exceeded the movies it was based upon. David Twohy (the scriptwriter for both Riddick movies) and Vin Diesel both contributed to the game’s development, assuring a maximum level of consistency with the world shown on the big screen. The level of polish is astonishing throughout the entire game. The stealth/adventure/brawler/RPG gameplay is slick and intuitive, characters are interesting and “alive”, and the combat is fun and visually realistic (which is a nice way of saying “bloody”). So find for yourself it you have what it takes to not only survive in Butcher’s Bay and assault the Dark Athena, the most dangerous places in the universe, but also make them bow to your will.
