Chronicles Of Riddick: Assault On Dark Athena Reviewed

Appletell 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. Appletell gave the game a score of 4 out of 5.

From the review:

the combat is quite effective when you get into it. This is one of the few first-person shooters Iíve played where the weapon and melee combat elements actually made sense together. It helps that the hand-to-hand combat is well done and quite fun to engage in. You use this not only to defeat your enemy, but to steal his weapon and such. And youíll need to do that, because picking up a weapon off the ground doesnít always work. Weapons are DNA coded, if I remember correctly, so they only work for the person meant to use them until you work your way around it.

As with most stealth-based games, success is rarely determined by how good you are at the kill. Instead, youíll be using your environment to get from point A to point B; hang from the ceiling, crawl through duct work, that kind of thing. And when you canít get through by sneaking around, comandeer a mech or drone warrior.
