So, The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena came in today.
The PR firm sent it out as soon as the game was released, which I surely appreciate. Whenever this happens I pretty much have to put everything else aside to work on the game review.
Game reviews are only relevant for a very short while, so they must be published within a week of the game’s release (preferrably the day OF release). Since it can take a long time to completely review a game, we are at a disadvantage when we get the game port-mortem.
It’s not like EA has a rule against sending out “gold” releases… websites have already published reviews on the game before it was released. I guess it’s just that we’re not cool enough for them.
Regardless, the review of the new Riddick game will be up within the next day or so.
