Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena Discussion
I thought that after validating via TAGES DRM security with your install code, you no longer needed the disk in the drive since your CD Key is stored in a file in the Ridd-ick Directory and that bypasses the CD check?
Anyway, my order got hung up and lost in the mail, so I got a refund and am going to the store to pick it up this weekend.
Darn ineffectual mailing system
Has anyone had the chance to read the review from CH? Link here: Link
I hope it isn't too hard to be stealthy because I hated the likes of Thief and Splinter Cell being too hard and relying too much on boring sneaking. How does it compare to the first game?
I believe North America got it on April 7th, and I'm just now getting to go to Gamestop tomorrow afternoon to get my copy.
The stealth is actually very fun with Riddeck (Intentional misspelling from now on XD), as you never feel distanced from it. It's very intuitive and the screen is never cluttered with a bunch of unneeded stuff.
On top of all that, for the majority of the game you need not compare it to the first game, as it IS the first game (Although heavily re-mastered for next-gen with HD visuals, etc.), and Dark Athena's singleplayer (Butcher Bay being the first 2/3rds of the game, Dark Athena is the last 1/3rd) is more shooter-heavy than Butcher Bay was.
I saw this review video on youtube, and the reviewer didn't like the shooter-y bits as much as the stealth, loved the Ulak Blades, and overall gave the entire Dark Athena package an 8.3 out of 10 I think, give or take a tenth of a point or two.
All in all, I'm freaking excited about this game. I loved Butcher Bay, and am looking forward to Dark Athena. I'm addicted to Riddeck. I think he's the hottest shaven-head anti-hero ever. Not much for Vin Diesel, but Riddeck is hawt =P
