TeamXbox writes: "When the first Chronicles of Riddick game was announced on the original Xbox, it didn't cause too much of a stir amongst gamers. It was a game based on a movie license (strike one) and on a movie no one was that excited about outside of hardcore sci-fi nerds (strike two) being developed by a mostly unheard of studio in Sweden (strike three). But then people saw the game and were wowed by the visuals. Then people played it, and The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay became a bona fide cult hit.
Now, the announcement of a sequel, The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena has gamers very excited. And they should be doubly so, because the game you buy for your Xbox 360 will not just be a sequel. It will be that sequel plus the original Escape from Butcher Bay, remade for the new generation of consoles. So even if you missed it the first time, now you'll get to see what everyone was so excited about the first time around."
