Default Re: Chronicles of Riddick how is it?

When I get to the part where the Papa character wants me to fetch his voice box... I get a BSOD every freakin' time. Without fail. Got my saves corrupted and replayed up until the point where I go to get his voice box and bam... BSOD. Bad_Pool_Header bsod crash and hard reboot.

Uninstalled.

Maybe someone with an SLI config should go ahead & test the game in SM2.0++ mode & report back his performance !
i'm interested to see the results .

What does the 2.0++ add? Should I pick this game up guys? I have never ever played it, what is it similar to? Is it linear, does it have scripted scenes, etc.

Riddick is awesome. I beat it on Xbox awhile back. Most underachieving game ever. They really blew it by not advertising this game more.

Wonderful! Great job Starbreeze! Go **** yourselves with your stupid Doom3 rip-off renderer and probably sub-par game.

Back to Doom 3...which at least INSTALLS.
Riddick came out BEFORE D3 so how the hell does it "rip off" D3? It also is a much better game than D3.

Are you kidding ! YOU SHOULD PICK IT ASAP !
this game is on par with Doom3/HL2/FC IMO if not better .
it has some cool features other than great graphics like (i'll just mention some i noticed so far) :

1) Hand-to-hand combat . yes! this is the first game to use that style & its awesome !
2) You can pick up differnet ways to complete an objective (just like DuesEX:IW for ex.) .
3) Secondary objectives that eventaully helps you through out the game .
4) You can use stealth or direct combat . each has its own advantages & disadvantages.
5) You can trade , chat & interact with NPCs in Riddick . you dont just run through corridors killing everyone !

as for SM2.0++ it simply turn all hard shadows in game to soft shadows . while that makes the game looks even greater , it takes a large performance hit that makes it unplayable in current hardware .
this feature is for 6800 cards only & of course future cards

Yeah, I agree. This game is great...not to mention it's only $29.99! It is surprising that it hasn't gotten more press. Like someone else mentioned already, even the menu system is really cool.

Yes i can say that you can use the shadows to sneak around .. its not as advanced as Thief3 though!
you can switch to the stealth mode when pressing the crouching button .. well it seems to me that being in the shadows makes you harder to detect .
& to make you drool further more .. when in stealth mode you can excute differnet stealth attacks when appraoching the enemy from behind . some of them are quite silent & other a bit loud (like neck cracking ) & thats either by bare hands or other melee weapons

of course being in stealth mode gives you an advantage to avoid direct fights/alarms/guards etc ..

Oh & you can hide corpses just like Thief .
