I have to go back to Spokane this weekend. I am sure that the same sort of thing happens to anyone who grew up in a small town and then moved away to the “big city.” Towns like Spokane seem to have their own special gravity that pulls you back every couple of months. I’m taking my new copy of Full Spectrum Warrior though which I have been saving especially for this trip.
Tycho is pretty much spot on with his review of Riddick. The only thing I would add is that the hand to hand combat actually ends up being way more fun than the shooting. As soon as you pick up a gun and start laying guys out it’s hard to differentiate Riddick from any other FPS. However, catching some asshole with a left jab and then watching his head snap back as you deliver an uppercut is a real treat. It seems like the developers were aware of this fact as they find reasons for you to loose your weapons on multiple occasions.
