The Good

Butcher Bay is still amazing, Fantastic lighting and shadows, Great character models and voice acting .

The Bad

New content is cliche and tedious, Troublesome artificial intelligence, Multiplayer feels tacked on.

The Bottom Line

Expanding on the blockbuster prequel videogame in the Riddick franchise, this expanded version brings back the proven gameplay and adds in a number of new features for next-gen consoles. Starring Vin Diesel as the titular anti-hero Riddick (who has heightened sensory abilities that allow him to see and hear beyond normal human ranges), you must break out of the galaxy's most deadly prison in this compelling 1st person action experience.

Game Features

Bonus material --Escape from Butcher Bay, considered as one of the best games of 2004, has been re-mastered and will be included along with The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena
