Trivia

In the final polishing stage the art team was able to make improvements upon the game, granted they would not introduce potential bugs. Art Director 'Jen Matthies' felt the 'Xeno Invasion' section of the game could benefit from a sense of urgency on the player and so personally voiced the PA announcer that gradually counted down remaining escape ships. He cites his inspiration as the computer voice in the opening of Alien³ (1992). See more »

Just got the PC version of it
10 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

And I got to say, this is the best console port to PC ever made. The game played really smoothly provided I had the most high end computer parts and sound, the graphic was very beautiful and rivaled both Doom 3 and Far Cry by miles. The storyline was brutally cold as you play as Riddick, the prisoner who seems to just wanna be left alone. The voice acting and music was just perfect exactly like the movie. And for 30 bucks this game is not a sure miss at all. However, there was some strange crashes like having 3d sound and EAX can sometimes give you the blue of death, another annoying problem that hit me was I had to install the monitor driver instead of using Microsoft's default plug and play in order to get the resolution beyond 800x600 but I think Starbreeze is making a patch for it. Other then that, playing at 1600x1024(I have widescreen 16:10 monitor) the game looked just beautiful and really puts the Xbox's version to bad shame. Even for those who hate the movie should give this game a try and you shall see why everything is afraid of Riddick. 9 out of 10.
