The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena does gamers one better than a next-gen port – it's got a completely independent game in there to go with Escape from Butcher Bay.
Assault on Dark Athena is more like a follow-up to Escape from Butcher Bay than a sequel or a remake. It seamlessly continues the story from the end of Butcher Bay and builds towards the enigmatic character of Riddick that we get in the films Pitch Black and that second one I'd rather pretend didn't exist. All of the old voiceover team reprised their roles, including Vin Diesel – because it wouldn't be Riddick without him. Really, this franchise gets more mileage from the games than it does from its source material.
