Chronicles of Riddick
|Starbreeze Studios is responsible for creating the surprisingly good game, The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay. Those familiar with the movie will recall Butcher Bay was one of the prison options on tap for the main character. While the movie never actually made it to Butcher Bay, we find the main character right at home in this first person shooter that's powered by the proprietary Starbreeze Engine. Not only does The Chronicles of Riddick - Escape From Butcher Bay boast excellent game play with impressive visuals and a mature story line, but the Chronicles of Riddick also proves to be a tough challenge and a game actually worth buying, which makes it an excellent addition to our suite of custom benchmarks.|
The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay has got to be one of the most demanding games currently available for the PC, as is evident by the framerates listed in the graphs above. This game can bring any video card shipping today to its virtual knees when running at higher resolutions, or with anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering enabled. The EVGA e-GeForce 7800 GTX ran through our custom Chronicles of Riddick benchmark fairly well, once again besting any other single card we tested. Only the 6800 Ultra SLI configuration was faster, and neither ATI card could even come close to the EVGA e-GeForce 7800 GTX.
