This original Xbox game is not supported on your Xbox 360 console. An update to support this game may be available. For more info, go to www.xbox.com/games.

Man I am so freakin pissed off now. I got this from eBay for like £5, so I was totally stoked! But now it seems that I can't actually play it on this machine.

And there's no way I'm going to touch Facebreaker again until I can find someone online to help me unlock the achievement points.

AAAAARRGGHHHHH!!@#!@!

Dear Diary, a creepy giant stared at me today and I didn't like it as much as I thought I would.

That's a real shame. Awesome, awesome game.

I was however under the impression that it was being remade for the 360?

Yeah I think you're right. I also heard that there was going to be a BC update for it.

BC = backward compatibility?

Me, I loved the game and it always irked me when I heard someone write it off as nothing more than a movie tie-in. It was a tie-in, but it was also a pretty good game in it's own right. I got it on PC, and liked it so much I bought it for my bro on xbox.

You know, even today I still think the close quarters combat holds up. Hiding from the guards in the shadows was hugely satisfying, especially when you'd spook them and they'd fire away at nothing whilst shouting profanities to try and flush you out.

Good visceral combat with the weapons too that game, good times. For a game, it really felt like you'd dealt out some serious pain when one of those guards went down to your rifle. I know this is a console thread, but I cant help but gush about the textures at hi-res on PC too; beautiful stuff. If I remember correctly, it came out at roughly the same time as DooM 3, a game I played a quickly forgot about despite it's much lauded engine.

The world needs more Riddick.

It won't happen as long as the next-gen remake is still happening. Though I haven't read anything new for a long time about it.

Best FPS on Xbox.

I hadn't even heard of the game until a week ago.
I was looking for some old gaming action and came across it as a review.
Trying to find a copy of it for my PC.
