Quotes

Waman: That's the stupidest idea I've ever heard!
Girish: Why? It'll work.
Waman: No! No fucking way, it'll never work! And you know why?
Girish: No, tell me.
Waman: Well there are two reasons. First, you are a fucking moron, that's reason number one. Number two is a simple fact, a fact you know like gravity, and hand-jobs. Number two is a simple as you are.
Girish: I'm not simple.
Waman: [Scoffing] Then your idea must be brilliant... But it's *shit*! Why? Wanna hear reason number two? Those rifles the guards carry... They are DNA encoded!

One of the best games I've ever played
23 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Chronicles of Riddick:Escape from Butcher Bay must be one of my favourite games for the Xbox. I think that Riddick's great anyway, so when I saw this I just had to have it. This game explains two things:1)how Riddick got his 'eyeshine' in the first place, and 2)how he escaped from one of the toughest slams in the Universe. The game has excellent graphics due to the motion capturing performed by the developers, which makes it seem very authentic. Riddick and Johns are voiced by their counterparts from the movies, and a lot of new characters are introduced, many who are irrelevant to the story overall but a few who might make the difference between Riddick living and dying. There is a huge amount of replay value, just to collect every feature and fully complete the game. This isn't a game for young children though, as it contains a lot of swearing and violence(just what you'd expect from Riddick). Verdict:10/10!
