5.0 out of 5 stars Out of left field... June 17, 2004
Platform for Display:Xbox|Edition:Standard
As any gamer worth his or her salt will tell you, 99% of games based on movies are atrocious. They are usually rush jobs meant to cash in on a new release (see: Matrix for a recent example) and, in essence, trick the buyer. That is most assuredly not the case with Riddick. This is one of the 10 best XBox games ever, and many are saying that it's oodles better than the actual film!
The strength of Chronicles is its immersive, story-driven environment. I was a bit skeptical about the first person view (First person shooters on consoles tend to be really hard to control due to the absence of a mouse and keyboard combo), but I was surprised by how well it worked here. In many ways, this game is part Role Playing, part stealth, part shooter and part Adventure. The environments you explore are really, really well done (atmospheric is the word), and the play of light and shadow is the best this side of Splinter Cell.
GRAPHICS: 9/10. Very, very good. In my mind, only Morrowind and Splinter Cell surpass this game for overall graphical brilliance. There are some anti-aliasing problems during some of the cinematics, but gameplay is smooth.
CONTROL: 9/10. There are some annoyances, such as inadvertantly pressing the crouch or shine-vision buttons while fighting, but they are mostly minor. The control scheme is unobtrusive and once you get the feel of the fighting controls, you'll have a blast.
SOUND: 8/10. I wasn't bowled over by either the music or the sound effects, but everything is in keeping with the dingy, grimy world you are in. The voice-overs and acting are really well done, though.
GAMEPLAY: 9/10. Awesome. Everyone says it's too short, but I think that's because the game is so good that you want it to last longer!

For some reason, my girlfriend thinks that Vin Diesel is the best actor ever... but she doesn't really care for xbox games. So in the spirit of compromise I came home with the game the other day. It was as a joke because most of the time licensed games stink and the whole escape from prison thing kinda beat.
Well, I was wrong... this game is not beat at all. The graphix are very good - the lighting especially. The sound is such that I'm contemplating upgrading my home theater to really hear it. It's one of those games where the controls are easy to grasp right off. And the things you can do with those controls are foul in the best possible way. You really get to play out your most outrageous, stone killah fantasies on this game; stuff that would make Schillinger from OZ twitch with terror.
There are a lot of cool touches to this game. I like the stealth aspect - mainly because its worked into the gameplay so stealth isn't the total point of the game. But best of all I like how many options you have to get things done. There's no right way to do things in REfBB. Just lots of deliciously wrong ways. And I don't just mean choosing to break the guards' necks loudly or silently, either - though that choice is one you'll have to make quite a bit. I mean the routes, the approach, and the way you interact with the world in general.
The world you're in when you're playing REfBB, by the way, is pretty freaking terrifying sometimes. There are no friendly places. That's all I'll say on that.
Some aspect of multiplayer would have been nice (my girlfriend would like to follow Vin, I mean Riddick, around on screen all night long) but I don't know how it could have been done.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new era in movie tie in game design June 3, 2004
Platform for Display:Xbox|Edition:Standard
First off I have to say that Riddick is amazing! I got this game on release and I am really impressed with the amount of polish displayed in the design of the game. The intro to the game is setup like a movie and the first thing that you will notice is how amazingly detailed the world and the characters are. In addition, the story line seems very cool from what I've been able to experience so far. If the ending of the game is anything like the beginning then I can't wait to bust out of jail. Not only are the graphics in this game incredible, but the sound is really well done. All the characters that you meet are very well voice acted and really make you feel like your new home for life is a prison. The game play also deserves to be recognized because this is the best fps on a console since the mighty Halo. The controls feel real good when shooting and also when handing out knuckle sandwiches to your new "neighbors". I was surprised how good the hand to hand combat in the game is. Throwing punch combos and pulling off neck breaking stealth kills is a snap and really cool to experience. The music also deserves recognition since its very moody when it needs to be and also picks up, dynamically, with the action. Overall, the music in the game is very well done and so are the sound effects. The only problem that I have with the game is the lack of multiplayer but I can't fault the developers too much for that because what they were able to accomplish is so much better than a slapped on multiplayer mode. Besides, just because a game is played from the first person perspective it doesn't have to be multiplayer. This game is not just a first person shooter, its more of a first person shooter, rpg, adventure, and stealth game; Riddick definitely pulls off that mix with style. Read more ›
