The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena brings the hit first-person shooter to a new generation of consoles. The action-packed game, a hi-definition re-imagined version of The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, Assault on Dark Athena features an entirely new chapter in the Riddick Saga and for the first time, intense online multiplayer combat.

The Chronicles of Riddick series of games takes the player deeper into the universe of Universal Pictures' films The Chronicles of Riddick and cult classic Pitch Black, which first introduced Vin Diesel as enigmatic anti-hero Riddick. In Assault on Dark Athena the player takes the role of Riddick using stealth and action to overcome the merciless crew of the predatory Merc-ship Dark Athena which awaits its prey in the dark reaches of space. Cheating death through a series of spectacular battles and events, Riddick will fight for his life amid a storm of malevolence and horror.

'The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay' has been re-mastered and will be included along with The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena

Multiple forms of combat: Unique blend of first-person range and melee combat with stealth kills and counter-attacks.

    Atmospheric and cinematic first person shooter: Great story telling in Sci-Fi environments handled with AAA Hollywood treatment for an immersive journey through Vin Diesel's blockbuster universe.

      Multiplayer modes: Variety of fast-paced multiplayer and online options available for the first time in the Riddick franchise.

      Im soooo relieved that this game is really good based on the demo of course. The graphics are great and very atmosphric perfect atomosphere for a riddick game. The kill moves with the Ulaks are quick and gory GREATT lol Preordered this game as soon as i heard it being developed but this just sets my purchase in stone played the demo hundreds of times aint bored yet!!

      I was a great fan of the previous game on the original Xbox and so was looking forward to this. The demo seemed ok and although I did suspect as it was a demo the final game would have been improved. I was wrong. The graphics looks very blurred and not very sharp at all - the gameplay isn't too bad, but there are too many locations that force you into a slugging match as there is no cover and no shadow to stealth from. Riddick seems to slope along and there doesnt seem to be a run button (very annoying when getting shot at and you are trying to retreat) He also feels very sluggish to control. There are also times when guards will see you even when you are in stealth mode and in the shadows (and no, they aren't using torches or night-vision) The game looks very last gen imo. A great shame as I think if they had ironed out the obvious problems with the game it could have been something special. As it is - it's mediocre at best. I wouldn't want to pay more than £20 for it.

       Deserves much more credit, 2 great games! (dont judge demo)

      I had Riddick escape from butcher bay on xbox in 2004, loved everything about the game and at the time the graphics on that game were the best around.

      When i found out about assault on dark athena i was very excited and very pleased that butcher bay came as a bonus on this game,.

      I played the demo of dark athena and did feel a little let down, it seemed nothing like butcher bay, graphics not as good as expected either.

      How wrong was i, the demo does this game no justice.

      I took the plunge and decided to buy this game as i thought i could at least enjoy butcher bay 2nd time around and see what dark athena really has to offer.

      Boy im glad i took the risk, anyone who has never played butcher bay but only played the demo of dark athena might think this is a bad game.

      My advice to those people is to buy the game, play butcher bay first and complete that (trust me you will love it), by then you will be used to the controls and the feel of the game, you then feel ready for the new challange of dark athena,

      Just completed butcher bay last night and have now started dark athena which im really into, the controls and feel of the game are the same as butcher bay which is good, forget the demo, the game itself is quality, graphics alot better than demo btw

      Buy this game, you wont regret it

      I have just finished Escape From Butcher so am talking from first hand not some stupid demo.
      It is one of the better games this year. It has a great variety of missions. Stealth, action, bosses etc. I loved playing every minute and am now starting Athena section. You get 2 full games and that is pretty great value for money.
      The graphics are OK but the gameplay is superb. Sometimes you have to compromise.
      All in all this is 10/10!!!

       Very good underated game

      Based on Demo, I was extremely impresed, the developers have done wonders with some excellent shadow, lightings ,atmosperical effects! this plays on full res 1080p (how many games dev. have the time or skill to dev to that standard?) there is no pixelation at all, ultra realistic graphics and you literally get 2 games in one! the original (re-vamped,improved for nex gen) and the new second chapter!! I think this is a hot title and keep playing the demo over and over!!! can;t wait for full game to arrive.
