Only about an hour into the game so far , a big fan of riddick and the movies , as well as an avid PS3 player ....Id say the graphics are so far well subpar , but then again its made by....atari? Really? anyways ...the camera angles while in tedious climbing positions are enough to make you toss a controller sometimes and although the concept itself ( a riddick game) seems pretty cool ..... It could have been much more A fair rental definately not a buy.

I was very skeptical about this game. I love the movies, but most games based off movies suck. This game however, is awesome! It's a remastering of Escape From Butcher Bay, with an extra part at the end, Assault on Dark Athena. The game is a prequel to Pitch Black. Its very stealth oriented. If you try to rush in "guns blazing" your probably going to die. Wait for your move, then STRIKE! If you like the Riddick movies, playing FPS games, and don't mind being sneaky, then this is the game for you. The graphics are pretty nice, a lot better than some of the other games out there. The combat is pretty bland, block, hit hit hit, block, hit hit hit, finisher. I haven't beaten the game yet, but so far, the story and gameplay is pretty good. Even if you've never seen the movies, this game won't leave you confused. As nothing from the movies needs to be known in order to understand the plot.
