I have heard that even though the Chronicles of Riddick wasn't that great of a movie, the game was actually pretty good.....although I'm going on heresay here.....


Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay is the best game I've played yet on the XBox. I just finished it a couple of days ago.

Course, I like all things Riddick. :)

Depends on what game your looking at. Star Wars games are really hit or miss. I haven't played most of them, but a lot of the Episode 1 game didn't fare too well. Starfighter for the PS2 was good though, and that was one of the earlier PS2 games.

Rouge Squadron 1-3 is are some of the peak Star Wars games, in my opinion. It's arcadey, but they are awsome! Only thing is the third one has too few ship missions, and not enough ground variety for my tastes.

The Super Star Wars games on the Super NES were really good I remember. They were hard, but good. The NES ones didn't fare too well. I had the Gameboy ports, and while long and expansive, just weren't much fun.

On the PC side, there are WAY too many to count. However, the X-Wing/Tie Fighter series of flight sim games were extremely good. I only have X-Wing and Tie Fighter, and while I never beat X-Wing, Tie Fighter was certainly a great sequal that improved upon X-Wing in many ways.

I can't bring up Star Wars games without mentioning the vector graphics Star Wars games. It's on Rogue Squadron 3, and it is still cool. Extremely simplistic, but I'm sure it blew people away in 1981(think that was the release date). Who wouldn't want to pilot an X-Wing and blow up the Death Star? Empire was pretty good, but I dont' think it was as strong as the original cause they didn't have as much to go on. Jedi never recieved a vector graphics game, only a 3/4 view sprite game that was a scrolling shooter/obisticle avoider.

So basicly there's crap in the Star Wars Universe of games, and there is good, so it really does even out. But a lot of the Star Wars stuff is in the expanded universe, so it's hard to really put that in with the movie stuff. Still, it's some of the best licensed games out there.

Don't forget Lego Star Wars. Those games are awesome!

And then there's the Jedi Knight games, and the KOTOR games. They aren't based on the movies as such, but are still licenced properties and great games too.

I think the website for the upcoming movie game http://www.transformersgame.com will be launching a beta of an online transformers game. Could just be the upcoming game in a demo though. I have both PS2 Transformers game and I love both of them.

Their naming the drone classes after transformers though instead of being individuals and they want people to choose from the names. For example all of the Cement Trucks were Mixmaster,Groundpounder,Roughstuff,Wideload etc. I hate that just name them drones dont give them names we associate with, if they want to give them names, why not actually make the transformer.

Well, I voted for Mixmaster, because if it shows up as a toy, it will be named and described as an individual like Swindle is. For what it matters anyway.

But I got to thinking about something...

I voted for Mixmaster instead of Quickmix because I assumed the drone was a Decepticon. Is that a faulty assumption?

When you play as the Decepticons do you fight Autobot drones in the game? Or does Sector 7 and the US military provide the cannon fodder?

From what I understand, you fight other robots from Cybertron. I think I recall them saying you might fight some military tanks and helicopters, but that might be the most you'll get to fight humans. No stompin' on people in this game.

As for naming the figures I think it's a great idea to have the fans put so much imput into the game itself. We alreay know one video game character made it to a toy (Swindle) and who's to say there won't be a boat load more.
