I agree the first Riddick game was fun,this one I found somewhat fun. I also agree this game is soooo not worth $50-$60 because it can get boring pretty fast well I found it that way because its almost the same just a different story add like its an expansion pack,and it can also get very annoying and old to fight the same guys weather your outside or inside. So I wold give this game about a 4 because it is a very fun game to play but they could have done alot more to it. I played the first one then the second and felt like I was still playing the first story. Im so glade I did not buy this game before renting it. Thank you GameFly for letting me rent online.
With games like Call of Duty, Resistance, Killzone, and Fallout on the market, Dark Athena simply doesn't have what it takes to keep up with the pack.
Its graphics are subpar compared to all next gen games and its gameplay does little to help it out.
A cheap stealth system tries to hide an awful first person shooter, with boring, single-functional, guns, and unrealistic sound effects. Even shooting a person just doesn't feel right the way it does in other AAA First Person Shooters.
Vin Diesel's monotone one-liners do little for developing Riddick into an actual character.
Unless you're a diehard fan of this series, do yourself a favor and rent another game. I spent a day on this before mailing it back - when I could've been playing something better.

This game is nearly identical to its predecessor - so much so that they include the original on the disc. For fans of Riddick, this is a good thing. For fans of games that don't boast 5 year old technology in their graphics and gameplay, this game simply disappoints.
It has some interesting dynamics and some interesting gameplay, as the original did. However, don't expect anything new, and definitely don't expect much of a story.
