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.
