Benchmarks with 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.|
Using a modified Doom 3 engine, it's no surprise that our benchmark results resembled the same pattern we saw in Doom 3. This time around the 6800 GT was the top performer in all areas of this test. In both resolutions with and without AA and Aniso enabled, the 6800 GT was the top performer all around. Even so, the Chronicles of Riddick proved to be a challenge for both cards.
