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 »

Halo meets doom meets tomb raider meets wait wait this game is one of its own kind
5 September 2006 | by UR60xSee all my reviews

Although I play all the games but I usually like the RTS games and puzzle games mostly because I am a pc gamer. I rarely like any action game and especially first person shooter or FPS but this game changed my opinion on FPS forever this game is mother of all action games with great action and ultra high graphics, real voices and amazing sound effects this game proves itself as one of the best game of the year in all the categories.

This game is not based on the movie but actually this game showed that how he escaped from the prison and got the ability to see in the dark. So in a way you will get to understand Riddick's life.
