Trivia

The game runs on an engine originally designed for Enclave (2002) that was then modified and updated with each subsequent game that Starbreeze developed, including The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay (2004) and The Darkness (2007). See more »

Goofs

When Hoxie catches Johns attempting to leave with Riddick, the outfit he is wearing is the one from the original The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay rather than the new design seen in the rest of the game. See more »

Quotes

Spinner: Johns? Should o' cracked the glass and watched him vomit up his own lungs.
Revas: Oh Spinner hon, you got a thick skull sometimes. Johns' a merc, just like you and me. And when a merc becomes a most-wanted, the price shoots sky high.
Spinner: Ma'am, we talkin' bounty now?
Revas: Johns busted out of Butcher Bay with the biggest prize they ever got.
Spinner: ...Riddick.
Revas: So no drone shop for this one.

Overlooked and missed classic game with Butchers Bay free
24 November 2018 | by charlie-119-150245See all my reviews

This is one of those rare game tie ins that is actually better than the films ( I'm not saying the films aren't good, but the games are just a bit better) it's a bit thief and a bit Alien Colonial Marines ( I know people hated this game but I could never quite work out why). It's a bit of a pain to find but you can still get it on GOG. You should get this game if you like games , like Riddick films , you have taste or a combination of all of them. ps I forgive Starbreeze for what the did with Syndicate remake because of this game only.
