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 »

Quotes

Guard: [Talking about Riddick] I only heard what he looks like.
Guard: [Notices a guard that is actually Riddick in disguise] He looks... kinda like *that* guy.
Guard 2: Ok, right...

One of the best games I've ever played
23 October 2005 | by alex-brooks6See 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!
