Andrew Weymes of The Nightly Gamer writes: "One of the best deals of the year is also one of the best games of the year thus far. The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena not only has the latest chapter in Riddick's video game adventures on the disk, but it has his previous adventure, Escape From Butcher Bay. It would have been a nice addition to the package if the developers would have included the original Escape From Butcher Bay as it appeared in 2004, but they took it one step further and gave it a 2009 upgrade in terms of the visuals. The great thing about Escape From Butcher Bay is that the gameplay holds up extremely well when compared to games of this generation. With the upgraded graphics of Escape From Butcher Bay, a brand new chapter entitled Assault on Dark Athena and some relatively satisfying online multiplayer, this game is an incredible deal. Both campaigns feature an excellent mix of story-telling, stealth and action gameplay. The multiplayer is standard for the most part, but it has a couple of unique game modes that are quite addictive. Anyone that has an appreciation for first person games that stray from the norm should definitely give this disk a look."
