Has anyone here played the new Riddick game?  I've read & been told it's maybe the best looking console game ever made, and supposedly it's actually fun too!  Anyone have any hands on experience with this game?

It got pretty good reviews, but not high enough for me to buy.  I'm already behind on purchasing extremely well reviewed games, so anything that is supposed to be "good" but not great becomes a rental.

I'd been thinking about Ninja Gaiden, but upon further reflection the game is probably too difficult for me.  I play games to have fun, not be mired in endless frustration, and I hear NG is very tough.  But it's got great reviews.

I don't put an immense stock in reviews til I can get opinions from *real* gamer.  Xbox Mag says Riddick is the best game ever made for the 'box, but I take that with a grain of salt as they're "official", although I almost always agree with their reviews.  Oh well, hopefully someone here has played it and can chime in.  Bubba or jqp, perhaps?

Haven't had a vid cable hooked up on my 'box since I sold it (the component cable) 5 months ago. So nope, not had a chance to try Riddick.

Am currently more interested in messing with my new LaserActive deck than I am with the 'box.

Rob,

If I rent it, I'll let you know how it is.  It does look very cool visually.  Yeah, if you are frustrated by games, Ninja Gaiden is a bad choice, though it is an incredible game.  I want to pick up SC: Pandora's Tomorrow when it drops in price.
