Tech-Gaming writes: "Every year, the industry machine grinds out a perpetual stream of licensed games. Sales of these titles are spurred by the popularity of the intellectual properties, rarely by critical acclaim. Of course, there is the sporadic exception to the rule- Alien 3 for the Sega Genesis captured the menacing sensation of navigating thin air ducts overrun with vicious extraterrestrials. GoldenEye 007 for the Nintendo 64 is widely recognized as the title that ceremoniously defied the trend; the title skillfully complemented the license. In 2004, Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay for the Xbox joined GoldenEye in the lonely pantheon of well-designed and well-received, licensed titles."
