IMG Previews The Chronicles Of Riddick
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a new preview of The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, the latest chapter in the Riddick movie and game franchise. Scheduled for release this Friday, April 16, the game includes both the Assault on Dark Athena campaign and an enhanced version of the original Escape from Butcher Bay.

Here's and excerpt from the preview:

The games are based on Riddick, the main character from the Science Fiction movies Pitch Black (released in 2000) and The Chronicles of Riddick (released in 2004), portrayed by actor Vin Diesel. In truth, the games are really more based on the character than on the movies. In the game, you control an very Riddick looking avatar and help him fight and sneak his way from one prison to another. In case you aren't familiar with this character, he has the ability to see in very dark places and has an uncanny ability to hide in the shadows. The games showcase Riddick's abilities, and players will find themselves making regular use of these skills.

In the game: "Escape from Butcher Bay," a bounty hunter brings Riddick to a prison colony planet called Butcher's Bay. This prison is considered to be inescapable. All weapons are intelligent and will not work for anyone who is not designated, not to mention the fact that even if someone got out of the prison complex, where would they go? (The entire planet is the prison). While this might seem insurmountable to some, it is almost a walk in the park for Riddick. The game guides the player through a series of tasks, some part of the main theme and others just for fun. As Riddick learns about the prison world he uncovers a dark secret he can exploit and eventually finds a way to escape.
