This was a title based on the world of the Pitch Black films starring Vin Diesel, named The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay. I know, a game based off Pitch Black doesn't sound all too riveting, but back in 2004 myself and many other people were blown away by how fantastic it was. It had some of the best voice acting, character animation, stealth/shooting gameplay and all-up-in-your-grill melee combat I have ever seen in a video game. The one game that has managed to combine all of these into a perfect blend since 2004 was the recent release of none other than it's sequel/episodic continuation Assault on Dark Athena.
What's fantastic for those who may have missed Escape From Butcher Bay is that it is bundled in with Assault on Dark Athena along with a graphical re-haul. That alone is worth your money, but the fact that Starbreeze thought to include an entirely new story alongside it makes my heart weep with joy. There is multiplayer bundled too, but it's a bit too crappy to be worth your time. More on that later, though..."
