The thing that will keep you hooked is the story of Dark Athena. Riddick is an awesome character and is portrayed well in this video game. The graphics are awesome and the voiceover is done very well.

With that said you will find yourself annoyed with the gameplay from time to time. First of all, the imbalance of health stations. Sometimes there's a whole lot close together, while sometimes you will be wandering around trying to survivor with one cube of health, frustrated that a health system hasn't appeared in the last twenty or thirty minutes of gameplay.

The weapons are fun, but again, the health system seems imbalanced. While it takes a small spray with an Assault Rifle to kill one drone, it seems sometimes it takes an entire round to kill another drone no different than the first. It works the other way around too. Sometimes you will find yourself amazed about how much health you have lost in a small gun or fist fight.

The shooting system and hand to hand combat needs work if they're going to make another sequel, but overall, this game is worth the rent if you're willing to overlook the few frustrated times you might have.

chronicles of riddick is as good as any first person shooter game I,ve ever played. It is as good as the half-life series from valve INC.

This is one of the best FPS you will play on any system! The average shooter cannoth compare to the setting the dynamics and the raw power this double pack of shooter possess dont let the user review fool you this is Vin Diesel's best appearance on screen. You will truly feel like the menace to the galaxy that is Riddick. Remember embrace the darkness
