Riddick re-chronicled: (Escape) From Butcher Bay, With Love

Taking the term literally, there are very few legitimate 'roleplaying' games - certainly fewer than exist within the RPG genre. How many times, for example, do you remember actually feeling at one with the character you controlled?

How many times did you share not just their experiences and actions, but their mind and body as well? Rather than give you ownership of a character's stats and inventory, how many games give you the sense that your character in part has possession over you?

Not many, though The Chronicles of Riddick is one.

I seriously hope the remake / expansion sells really good so Riddick becomes a franchise.
Original Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay was simply one of the best FPS games of all time. It was short and lacked multiplayer but hey, it was more than sweet.

I had so much fun playing this game. I felt bad not beating it before I had to give it back, but that was a good thing cause now I can finish the new one by playing it on the next gen consoles : )

This game truly was one of the console defining titles of the last gen. Stunning graphics, superb gameplay, a kick ass melee system, and one of my favourite features. Absolute darkness. It's a feature that so few games have actually been brave enough to embrace. The ability to have it so dark, that literally no light can be seen whatsoever. There were a few places where you could make this happen by taking out all the lights and it really made the atmosphere. I will be getting this, no question.

this game is in my top 3 of all time together with half life 2 and bioshock.

Yep this is definitely one of my favourite FPS games (along with Red Faction) and can't wait for the remake.

I hope it gets the praise it deserves next time around because the game was truly a masterpiece yet many people don't realise it!
