CGRundertow THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK: ESCAPE FROM BUTCHER BAY for Xbox 360 Video Game Review


Today i am taking a look at the Remastered hd version
of the chronicles of riddick escape from butcher bay. This full game is on the same disc as
assault on athena. Escape from butcher bay is the prequel to the entire Riddick saga. The story is very well made the writing is
solid and the voice acting is superb. Vin Diesel does a great job as Riddick. Which
is a good thing since Vin has as much range as throwing an elephant. The games overall graphics are quite good
seeing as this is an updated xbox 1 game. The textures are smooth and the level design
is very good with plenty of variety. If you’ve never played the 2004 xbox 1 game. You will
never have guessed that this is a remastered port. Gameplay is very brutal and satisfying in
butcher bay, the game relies on stealth and at times some great gun play for the games
long 8 hour campaign. The game also has a robust and visceral melee system. You get
prison shanks clubs and your fists to pound your enemies or shank them or bash their brains
in, or whatever floats your boat. There are plenty of combos to learn and the
close quarters fights are bloody good fun. They just work so well blocking and attacking
just has a great flow of movement. However the game gives no hints on how to
perform the combos leaving you mashing buttons till you figure it out. In fact the entire
game sort of just plops you in with little direction. I don’t want my hand held but a
clue here and there would help like knowing you can climb certain objects. I had moments 3 hours in going what i can
do that? Why was i not told? On top of the great melee system you have
some really exciting gunplay now considering the game was originally made in 2004 the gunplay
is slightly different from your call of duty style shooter. Its fast and furious get it?
any way gunplay is stylish and designed well the guns have a nice feel and it leads to
some intense firefights. One slight complaint is that the guns sound a bit weak. However the game can be brutally tough in
sections the game is very satisfying to play but it will make you cry. Because stealth is thrown into the mix along
with gunplay and melee combat the game just has tons of variety keeping it fresh for the
duration of the game. The story is solid even if a bit cliched and the game looks pretty
good for a remastered port. Overall, this is an exciting and overlooked game you should
check out.
