Guest Scathane Posted September 13, 2004 Share Posted September 13, 2004 The guys behind Chronicles of Riddick outdid themselves this time, I think. We all know where it started: Pitch Black. Then we got Chronicles of Riddick and, before long, the animated DVD Dark Fury. With an animated sequel, the Riddick series follows the footsteps of The Matrix and Star Wars, which, I believe, were the first movies to complement their series with animated episodes essential to the story line. Now, the Riddick series follows up with Escape from Butcher Bay, a video game. Now, of course I know that the Riddick series isn't the first to complement itself with a video game; Star Wars did that long before. But the Riddick series takes it one step further: it makes a pivotal facet of the series available exclusively in its video game. As most of you may be aware of, Richard B. Riddick has a "gift" called Eyeshine. In Pitch Black, it was explained that, because Riddick was enslaved in the dark for too long, his eyes got so accustomed to the dark that he can't stand bright light. This ultimately gave him the lethal additive of stalking prey in the dark. What's unique about the Riddick series, is that the prison of Butcher's Bay (where Riddick got his eyeshine) is featured solemnly in the video game. In other words, you get to play the most pivotl aspect of the story in a video game! Wow! Apart from the good reviews Escape from Butcher Bay got, consider the following voice recording crew: Vin DieselCole HauserKristin LehmanXzibitRon PerlmanMichael RookerDwight SchultzJoshua LeonardJoaquim de Almeida Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
