GamesRadar writes: "For a murderous escaped convict, Richard B. Riddick has an uncanny habit of being roped in to save the day. His big-screen debut was in Pitch Black, a sci-fi epic which dumped him on a planet infested with carnivorous aliens. In the sequel, The Chronicles of Riddick, he faced off with a marauding galactic empire, the evil-sounding (and doing) Necromongers. However, it was only when Activision decided to drop Assault on Dark Athena from its release list that the growling anti-hero looked like he'd met his match. Fortunately, for everyone who loves a good FPS, Atari was lurking in the darkness, ready to pick up the pieces".
