Trivia

Riddick's eye shine vision was originally meant to be much like the distorted effect in Pitch Black (2000). Due to complaints from play testers regarding headache and dizziness after playing several minutes, the effect was changed to resemble more closely the effect used in The Chronicles of Riddick (2004) which is similar to normal vision but with increased lighting and purple tint.

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!
