Good call, but I liked Crystal Dreams 1 and 2 better.

Now that they've got some RELEASE experience (finally!), whatever they're working on next, I hope it just happens to be "INTO THE SHADOWS".

Anyone who's known anything about the company's history will know to what I refer.

Third'd...or whatever. Anyway, I was REALLY surprised by Chronicles of Riddick. A friend recommended it to me and my immediate answer was "a movie-tie-in game on a console is good?!?! yea right!" Yet, here we are...

It's easily one of the best Xbox games out there & probably the best shooter for the console, but maybe that's just me. (I didn't care for Halo one bit)

I'd have to second that, with one caveat...

X-Wing and TIE Fighter. 'Nuff said.

Riddick is a fantastic game, based on the two solid evenings of playtime I've had so far (hardly enough for a fair trial, I know!). The combat mechanics far surpass Halo (which I think is pretty good going, as Halo's the only console FPS I've ever felt comfortable with, apart from GoldenEye), the graphics are fantastic, the voice acting is consistently brilliant, and the game's an awful lot of fun!

Just about the only downside I can find is the music. It's not bad, but somewhat repetitive, and the "combat music" loops far too often for my liking.

One thing worth mentioning are the "extras" you can pick up throughout the game. These range from game concept art, tutorial videos, trailers for the films, even down to footage of early prototypes. I found it made me want to explore every last nook and cranny of the game far more than I usually would.

Starbreeze are definitely a company that get it right, and I wish them the best of luck recruiting!

While I only played a little of Enclave, I thought that Riddick was probably _the_ best movie-tie-in game that I've ever played. It's simply fantastic. I really like the fact that they put out a mature minded game (complete with language to match the typical gaming violence) with so much polish it hurts my eyes from its "shine".

Man, I'm a nerd.

Now, if only they were looking for a webapp developer
