Chronicles Of Riddick
Posted 29 June 2004 - 08:55 AM
First off, amazing game. There aren't too many bad things to say about this title.
I'll hit the bad first.
1) On occasion you can see opponents through walls, they shoot at you and can see you but they miss due to you being behind the wall. (very minor)
2) A few awkwardly challenging areas that seem to go endlessly. (again very minor)
3) NO MULTI PLAYER MODE... boooo....
That's about all the negative, now the good stuff.
Amazing graphics, amazing sound, and most of all great usage of the whole screen without distracting icons, maps, healthbars etc. on screen. Gives the game a cinematic look to it. Even if you don't like the "overacting" of Vin Diesel, you'll probably get into this one as it fits and is probably the one role he can't screw up.
Overall I give this one a 9.5 out of 10.

Riddick is very gritty and I think thats what kept me going. Plus you really could play hte game 2 ways..stealthy..sneak up and break a neck etc..or just guns ablazing. IT's one of those games wher you felt like you were VinDeisel's character..kicking ass and unstoppable...
I would really rate it a solid 9 out of 10 for single player... The only reason it didn't get a 10 is I had to restart midway throug due to a corrupt save game file!! YUK!!
Oh..Sit through the End Credits (all the way..it's like a 10 min stream)..and you will get a little movie teaser... I think that what it's from...
Nice work..Waiting for Riddick 2...

but from what i've seen it looks pretty good
i like some of the things such as if you look down you can see your feet, unlike other games it looks like you can float over edges
also the graphics look awesome

this game is a great example of a movie based game should be. good graphics, nice gameplay. only thing was wish it had more replay value. i got 85% of the bonus stuff, without trying. but very nice.

The only bad thing about this game has to be the stealth parts, I wish it was in 3rd person.

I thought this game was excellent, and I'm thinking about starting another game up right now just from talking about it. 9.5/10

First off the bad:
I found myself getting lost alot or going to parts of the levels just to find out I had to get a certain item before I could go any farther. Which I had to go back to get. Also some of the rooms/vents seemed pointless in the game. Some left me thinking why was these put in the game because they took me to nothing but a big circle. That might have just been me though. The whole game after getting half way through the game seemed like one big maze. One last thing is lack in weapons(guns) and through alot of the game you couldn't even use weapons(guns). Not all will feel the same way about the stuff listed but I did.
Some of the best graphics I've seen on Xbox. Great gameplay/control. I liked the stealth alot and how you could do different stuff. Loved the first person fighting and how you do reversals on the guards. Liked how they made it seem you was in prison and really trying to escape(would explain part of the complaints above). Overall I think it was a good game and IMO as good if not better than Halo(which I thinks overrated). Most think the game was to short but not me I don't like a 20+ hour game. I like them in the 10-15 range. I don't have alot of time to play games so I like them to be fairly short.
Since its so short I can only recommend renting it unless you like replaying through games. You can beat in with a 5 day rental at 2 hours a day.
