Chronicles of Riddick -
There are also nano-medicine stations located at regular intervals in the game. And I strongly recommend using them whenever possible. Also you can go back in a level and reuse the med station in a previous level or check point. This is very helpful in some levels where you need to engage heavy fights and it does lower your health quite a bit. Continuing the game with low health is not a good idea considering the AI the game has, so this is not the easiest game on planet. And yeah just one small tip. Do not , I repeat do not try to take on exoskeleton robots. They cannot be killed. They are fully bulletproof and all you can do is avoid them and hide from them.
The other most interesting feature is commentary mode which is really fun. The game developers have made nice and genuine effort in making commentary mode. There is nice and almost perfect description of the full game and I simply cannot put that experience in words. It's yours to experience. But I am sure it will be nice additions to many future games.
Now to game controls. The keyboard controls are almost perfect. It's the best I have seen in long time. And the game insures that you won't need to read the manual for that. During the game play proper help is provided. Whenever you will come across something new, be it controls or weapons, there will be flashing animation that will prompt you to press F1 for help. The tips provided there are precise and I recommend everyone read those tips at least the first time they play this game.
The game also has journal. Pressing 'J' will reveal you a map, your mission, your collections and money you have collected so far. In short all the info you need is there including detail information about the side missions that you have to complete. The game is saved in regular intervals and once you die the last checkpoint is automatically loaded. There is also quick save and quick load option that let the user save the game at any point. To make long story short, there are hardly any downsides when it comes to game play. In fact I can make a statement that this game may have one of the best game play experiences.
The game starts with the Riddick taken to the prison. Riddick is supposed to be one of the most wanted criminal in the galaxy. Riddick is like an icon in the game. The most fearless, dashing and feared criminal in the whole galaxy. The storyline is not the same to that of the movie; in fact it's entirely different. It starts somewhere in the past in context to the two movies that we saw on the big screen. It's actually a prequel of the first movie Pitch Black which was released in 1999. Riddick is delivered to the butcher bay by the bounty hunter and is locked up in the Butcher Bay prison.
