On this day in gaming, in 2004, The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay was released on Xbox. It came to the PC a few months later. It is the first Riddick video game, and acts as a prequel to the events of the first Riddick film, Pitch Black, and is regarded as one of the best movie-inspired games of all time.


The likeness and voice of Richard B. Riddick is provided by Vin Diesel. Other well known actors lend their voice talent to the game to- like Ron Perlman and Xzibit.


A sequel to the game came out in 2009, The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, which included an enhanced remake of The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay. This was actually the main goal of the project and Assault on Dark Athena was practically just an afterthought, although a good game as well.


You can pick up The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay here if you want to play a classic. Otherwise you can also try The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena.
