I actually have my hopes quite high for this one, the first Riddick on the original xbox was a really good game, so fingers crossed this new one wont disappoint.

Should be on marketplace, but for some reason I can't get to it (on the web version), anyone tried the 360 version of marketplace yet?

Really enjoyed what I played on the PC, could be a game of the year if enough people get involved this time round.

yeah it was a game that i only got about half way through before some other big game came out (possibly GTA:SA or MGS3) and i just never got back to finishing it.
well looks like i'll finally get the chance again what with Butcher Bay being the first part of the game.
hopefully though StarBreeze have improved their multiplayer since The Darkness as that was just a mess online.

1UP did a preview a while back and talked about the MP, there is a mode where its 'Pitch Black' and you cant really see sh*t, I havent seen too many videos (been trying to stop, it ruins a game when ive seen about 60% of it through promo videos) but its deffo something im keeping my eyes on (though Riddick himself might struglle to do that, bad joke. Sorry).

Search for "Assault on Dark Athena". Searching for "Riddick" produces no results. It's there - mine's queued.

i'd like to see some mode where its 1 vs everyone else, where its Pitch Black and everyones trying to hunt a single player Riddick. the hunters have to use torches whilst the Riddick just takes his goggles off and has to either evade or kill the hunters over a period of time. it'd be similar to Splinter Cells MP mode. i can see that being put in though.

That's exactly what Pitch Black mode is. Riddick has a knife and can see in the dark, the others are hunting him using torches and guns...

In fact, your request is SO much like what is actually included in the game I'm wondering if you were being sarcastic :)

There's also another multiplayer mode where it's 4 vs 4 vs 4 (Guards, merc, prisoners). Sounds like fun.
