Riddick: the Merc Files - $.99 sale.




I've heard nothing but terrible things about this game... It's on sale for $.99 now though.


On the bright side, there is a lite version.

It's not the best stealth title, but it has its moments. There are 3 objectives each map so that means you'll have to replay the maps to complete the objectives. This can come out as repetitive, but for a completionist, this is replay value.

Controls work well for me, and the art style is the cel shaded graphics of old.

What the game needs is a proper story line to wade through til the end. This is what makes things feel repetitive for me. Coz there's nothing more than just doing mission after mission 3 times without any long term reward, other than getting to 3-star the mission.

If you like stealth games this one's pretty decent at a buck. It has zero IAPs as well.

Agreed. If this had a story mode and a reward system, it could actually be a more compelling game. As it is, it's a solid stealth game with too much wasted potential, but worth a look regardless.

I think it needs some kind of vstick controls.
