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 »

Great movie-based game
9 June 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I hardly write game reviews, as I prefer to get literally EVERYthing from a game (beat it, unlock everything, etc...) before I even attempt to share my feelings of said game. With that said, I can give Escape From Butcher Bay a very good score. This FPS prequel to the events in the movie "Pitch Black" may be the best X-box exclusive game since Ninja Gaiden. Reason enough to buy an X-box? That's debatable, if you liked Pitch Black then YES. If you like First person shooters? YES. If you're one of those fools who blindly hates everything Microsoft? Then you're missing out on one of the better movie-tie in/spin off games out there. Oh yea and the graphics are great too. a tad on the easy side brings it down half a point.

My Game Grade: A-
