Chronicles of Riddick
publisher atari / last seen 2009
The law of averages dictated that one day, a game-of-a-film would be made that was better than the movie which spawned it. And lo, Chronicles Of Rid dick: Escape From Butcher Bay was released in 2004. It didn’t have to be much cop to outshine Vin Diesel’s flick but, astonishingly, it was really good. The mix of shooting, puzzling and stealth as you extracted Riddick from prison gelled superbly. 2009’s sequel was tasty, too. Activision Blizzard picked up the rights to the franchise but sold them to Atari, which is rumoured to still exist in some form, but explains the absence of any subsequent Riddick action.
