I'm not really going to speak to the game, as I have nothing to complain about there. It's a good mix of FPS, stealther and puzzle. I was most pleased on the game play and the graphics aren't bad.
HOWEVER, the save feature is reprehensible! While you can only save at checkpoints (actually, it's an auto-save at checkpoints, you have no control), that isn't so bad. Annoying, but not terrible. It's when you're in the middle of playing (not saving, not loading... playing) and the power goes out, then you decide to reload later and find that your entire profile is "corrupt and cannot be used" that you decide to never touch the game again.
I liked the game and would have given it at least a "7" if not an "8," but the inability to put it down when you feel like it and then come back to the same point instead of starting all over again is a complete deal breaker.

First off this game has voice overs from Vin "The Man" Diesel and Xzibit himself..The game starts you off before Pitch black..You are caught by Johns and taken to a 3 security max prison the toughest in the galaxy Butcher Bay..You have to fight,kill and bribe your way through all 3 security levels..There's wepons galore but they are DNA encoded so you have to figure out how to input your DNA so you can use the guns.But there are shivs,clubs and other hand held wepons till you figure out how to use the DNA ecoded wepons.And if all else fails there are your bare hands.you can punch and snap necks..There are reversals you can perform on enemies so the blow off their own heads or stab themselves.Enemies range from guards to Giant robot guards with minute guns to creatures that live in the darkest depths of the prison..Everybody talks about Halo this Halo that but Riddick makes Halo seem like candy land..There are also prison side missions in the game..Prisoners will give you items for doing some dirty work for them..Plus you can build up your money by playing prison craps or joining the prison fight club..The graffics are top notch..Vin looks like vin..The prison is grimmy and nasty bugs are crawling all over the walls..best looking game in awhile..If you play this GREAT FPS you wont be dissapointed..GREAT game and the most violent game you'll ever play.At the end you feel lie how did you ever live withpout this game..
