TrustedReviews writes: "For me, multiplayer isn't really the point, anyway. Riddick was always about delivering a visceral, narrative-driven single-player FPS. Starbreeze showed it could do this with Escape from Butcher Bay, then showed it could do it again with The Darkness. Now, Assault on Dark Athena – while the weakest of the bunch – makes it a hat-trick. It's still way beyond anything you might call average, and in its best moments it's very good indeed. That's enough to keep me going, enough to re-inspire the Riddick faithful, and enough to keep Starbreeze in the frame as one of the most interesting action game developers around".
