Chronicles Of Riddick: Assault On Dark Athena Reviewed

Mac|Life recently posted a new review of The Chronicles Of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena from Virtual Programming. The game features the Riddick movie character in two adventures: the Assault on Dark Athena campaign and an enhanced version of the original Escape from Butcher Bay. Mac|Life gave the game a score of 3.5 out of 5.

From the review:

Much is recycled from the absolutely stellar Escape from Butcher Bay; both games have three main parts: shooter, stealth, and bassy one-liners. Dark Athena, however, is built on a new engine that supplies updated lighting effects, combat, and environments. Fighting is also a much larger part of Athena--players frequently choose between devastating enemies with close combat or using the guns found around the ship. One of the true strengths of Athena is the way it gives you an almost guilt-inducing feeling of becoming a highly trained killer--manifested in brutal finishing moves when you melee, stab, or impale at exactly the right time.

Even minor characters have movie-caliber polish, and the voice acting is first rate. Waiting in the shadows, you’ll overhear characters speak about their wives, their jobs, and their guns. Apparently, a ship full of mercenaries fosters rather foul mouths; Assault on Dark Athena contains the most explicit language of any game in recent memory.
