Product Details:

With The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, players will not only be challenged to survive Butcher Bay, but will also engage in a new single-player experience and, for the first time in the Riddick universe, take action in intense multi-player combat. The game introduces the ominous Merc-ship Dark Athena, which sits silent like a marauding spider, awaiting helpless prey in the dark reaches of the galaxy. Players must face a large, bloodthirsty operation led by the dreaded Captain Revas and her slaves-turned-controllable combat drones, storm though death-defying events and fight fierce enemies in a battle of malice and gore.

The newest title in the Riddick franchise, The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena brings the hit action / stealth FPS to a new audience and a new generation of consoles. The action-packed game features an entirely new chapter in the Riddick Saga, and takes the player deeper into the universe of Universal Pictures' films The Chronicles of Riddick and cult classic Pitch Black, which first introduced Vin Diesel as enigmatic anti-hero Riddick.

In The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena the player takes the role of Riddick as he escapes Butcher Bay prison with the bounty hunter Johns. Their ship is captured by rogue mercenaries under the command of the nefarious Captain Revas. During his quest to escape the ship, Riddick learns terrible secrets about the Dark Athena. He is forced to face down the piratical mercs, and put an end to the vile plans of its evil captain.

Set before the events of both Universal Pictures' 2004 summer release, The Chronicles of Riddick, starring Vin Diesel, and the 2000 breakout hit Pitch Black, which first introduced Diesel as enigmatic anti-hero Riddick: the game tells the story of Riddick's dramatic escape from the previously inescapable triple max security slam Butcher Bay, home to the most violent prisoners in the universe. This classic title has been graphically re-mastered for next-gen systems and it's included free, along with the new "Assault on Dark Athena" campaign.

  • Includes a remake of the classic title "Escape from Butcher Bay" visually re-mastered for next-gen systems
  • Recognized as one of the best games of 2004
  • Includes added content from the PC version
  • Immersive new story campaign as a seamlessly integrated sequel to the Butcher Bay title
  • Intuitive stealth system unique to the FPS genre
  • Advanced melee combat & parrying system

Multiplayer Modes
  • DEATHMATCH (up to 12 players) - All against all. Weapons, ammo and power-ups are scattered around the levels. Some smaller levels do not have the most powerful weapons on them for balancing purposes. Ulaks are also not included. Supports up to 12 players. Some smaller maps support less than 12 players, ie 4-8.
  • TEAM DEATHMATCH (up to 12 players) - As above, but the players are split up into red and blue teams. Supports up to 12 players, but some maps are for smaller teams, as with Deathmatch.
  • CAPTURE THE FLAG (up to 12 players) - Red and Blue teams try to penetrate each others' base and take their flags. Weapons, ammo and power-ups are distributed similarly to Deathmatch, but with other CTF unique maps as well as some Deathmatch maps. Supports up to 12 players, but some maps are for smaller teams as with Deathmatch.
  • BUTCHER BAY RIOT (12 players) - 12 players split up into teams of Guards, Prisoners and Mercenaries. There is one powercell in the level. Capture the powercell and return it to the capture point in the opposing teams base to win the round (match can be won with 3 or 5 rounds depending on settings). Players buy weapons before the round starts. Winning rewards them with more cash, as does killing the opposing players. All weapons can be purchased. All maps support 12 players.
  • ARENA (up to 8 players) - Either 1 on 1 or teams of 2 on 2 (default setting is 2 vs 2 but can be changed in advanced options) . Winning team/individual stays on. Other teams watch as spectators. All weapons are in the player's inventory when the game is started. Supports up to 8 players.
  • PITCH BLACK (up to 6 players) - Play as a Mercenary with up to 5 others and hunt down Riddick. When you kill Riddick you become him. All levels are sheathed in darkness, with only weapons and flashlights to see by. Riddick starts in the darkness, the Mercenaries start in a lit room containing shotguns, SMG's and Assault Rifles. Drop into the darkness to hunt down Riddick. Riddick is armed with the Ulaks and his unique nightvision/eyeshine. The more powerful the Mercenaries weapons are, the weaker the power of the flashlight is.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I couldn't stop playing Seriously I kept telling myself I needed to take a break but this game was so fun I would just keep playing for hours. It's definitely on my list of favorite games.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No one ever plays multiplayer Chronicles Of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena Takes aim from the continuing of Chronicles Of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay. You play as Riddick once again and fights more mercs and bad guys. The story isn't that bright but it's nice to see the stealth killings again. The graphics are well done and lasted for a good 9 hours. But no one doesn't play multiplayer which made me feel like returning the game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from well im a big fan of stealth.....thats why im here I have always loved stealth action games like hitman, metal gear solid, theif, splinter cell, tenchu... and all in between. and if you like stealth games i would say get it! 10 bucks and you got a good game. but if your newer to stealth action games then i would say get one of the big blockbusters like metal gear solid or splinter cell. stealth action games are all very different. this game i would say is one of them but also has scary horror like scenarios too and lots of fist fighting and brawling. the brawling is fun and riddick, your character, is a total B.A! overall its big fun if you like all these little elements that tie it together and if you buy it and like the horror and scary parts then i would recommend getting F.E.A.R 2 or 3- both are great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing game I bought this game just because it was 9 dollars and i thought it was gonna stink but i played the athena campaign and i was amazed. the butcher bay campaign was okay but the game itself is a must buy and the multiplayer is good when someone is actually online with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pick this game up! Ok, first off this game absolutely rocks! It was seriously one of the best games when it first came out. It still is awesome and adding the new game with also online in it is a major plus. Its part stealth and part shooter. Very nicely put together i must add. Graphics look awesome, so i dont get why anyone would critisize that. The lighting is fantastic. The gameplay is really where it shines. Its fast paced and great gameplay make this one a keeper. It seriously is better than the movie and has quite a different story. I enjoyed the first one when it came out so much, i was looking forward to playing it again and in HD! The second game on the disc is quite good too, but if you never got to experience Butcher Bay then you have to play this. Its very worth it and just a great fun Riddick game. I personally think outta every movie based game out there that Riddick is definately the best one by far. Usually movie based games are pretty bad, but not this one by any means. To tell you the truth, i am having much more fun with this game than i am with KZ2. Pick this game up, its great and to have Vin doing the voice acting for the game is a major plus! Fans of Pitch Black will enjoy this.
