GameZone writes: "Graphically, Escape from Butcher Bay was (and still is) one great looking game, and the improvements in Dark Athena keep it in league with the most technically impressive titles out there. The environments are detailed, the character models and lighting effects are great, and the new special effects like motion blur and depth of field are fantastic additions to immerse you into the experience. The game's music and voice effects are also on par with its predecessor.
The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena is shaping up to be a great action title; one with brains and no shortage of action. If you missed out on the original Riddick game, now is your chance to jump in".
