Its difficult to come to grips with a release like The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, because its made up of several disparate components of varying quality. The shining star here is the slick retooling of 2004s Escape from Butcher...

International Review By Bouweenpc on 60

The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena is een spel met net zo veel goede eigenschappen als slechte. Het sluipen is niet frustrerend en het knokken is bloederig; de vuurwapens en kunstmatige intelligentie laten te wensen over. Het verhaal is...
