The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay is a first-person action/stealth video game developed by Swedish company Starbreeze Studios and published by Vivendi Games. It is a part of the Chronicles of Riddick franchise. The Xbox version was released in June 1, 2004 to coincide with the release of The Chronicles of Riddick film, and a Microsoft Windows version of the game was released on December 8, 2004.

Set before the events of the films Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick, the game follows Riddick in his attempt to escape from Butcher Bay, a maximum-security prison. The development team was interested in exploring the character of Riddick by making a game focused on a prison break, instead of a "see-the-movie-play-the-movie" experience that had been emulated in other movie tie-in games. The likeness and voice of the movie's lead actor, Vin Diesel, are also used for Escape from Butcher Bay's main character, Richard B. Riddick.

The game received widespread critical acclaim upon its release. It was lauded for its implementation of different gameplay elements as well as its graphics. A common complaint was the lack of a multiplayer mode. A follow-up, titled The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena was released in 2009 which included an enhanced remake of The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay.

[edit] Upper Mines Tranq Gun

You can buy a tranq. gun from one of the inmates before you enter the Upper Mines. It is 50 U.D. You can test it on him if desired, and he will not attack. Tranq. guns are useful for stunning enemies and stopping the Riot Guard that goes around in the Upper Mines.


[edit] Beating on other inmates

In the Rec. Ward or fighting ring area, by just punching someone once then backing away for a short while, you can hurt an inmate and not get killed by the rail defenses. If you have enough patience, you can kill an inmate. It will take a while.


[edit] Sneaking around

If you are trying to avoid being seen either by guards or guns mounted on the wall, go into stealth mode and shoot the lights out to make everything dark. This is useful for sneaking behind people to break their necks, etc.


[edit] Riding the rail Tranq Gun

When you are riding the rail, there is a ladder beside it. Go down it and kill the guard in front. Then, go to the ladder in front of you. There should be a Tranq Gun here.


[edit] Bug Eating

This is for when you are low on health, when you see one of the bugs flying around press X near it to eat it and it will restore low health meters.


[edit] Riot Guards

To easily take out the riot guards, simply give the BLACK panel on their backs a couple of shot-gun blasts.


[edit] Regaining health

Your health is divided up into squares. When you are damaged, the square will start to minimize. At any time you can recharge the last square to the right that is not fully depleted by waiting awhile. This can be done at any time, but it only recharges your current square. This works faster while crouching.

[edit] Defeating the Riot Guards

In order to defeat the Riot Guards, you have to shoot them in the back. It is recommended that you get close to them and strafe sideways while shooting them in the back. They are slow and cannot keep up. In addition, do not forget to pick up the Riot Guard's minigun.


[edit] Defeating Hoxie's Red Mechs

When you fight Hoxie's Red Mechs, pick up the mini gun. Get the mechs in a line so they cannot hit you and shoot away.


[edit] Defeating the Heavy Riot Guards

At the Loading Dock, you cannot hope to take this monster out with any weapon. Your best bet is to get the minigun before entering the Loading Dock and shooting the explosive canisters that are circulating over the guard. Make sure to stay out of the line of fire. Keep hitting the canisters until the guard falls.
