  • Excerpt: Pyxis Prime is a prison. It doesn't contain rapists, murderers, or thieves but was meant to hold a single inmate whose only crime was birth. This being is referred to as the Firstborn, a creature that was God's initial creation. Displeased with his first life form, God decided to lock it away in a Purgatory-like dimension. However, the Firstborn didn't appreciate its incarceration, and thus tried to escape numerous times.

Wario Land: Shake It!

Hooked Gamers
12 October 2008
  • Conclusion: The game’s upbeat, cheery soundtrack sets the right tone for a Wario platformer. A more orchestral direction might have been even better but the soundtrack is nevertheless amazing. Even Wario’s grunts and the other random sound effects in the game are worthy of a nod. Without a doubt, Wario Land: Shake It! is the pinnacle of 2D gaming on Wii. The game is so well thought-out and executed that the $49.99 price tag is a steal.

Clive Barker's Jericho Review

VideoGamer.com
11 July 2008
  • Excerpt: Clive Barker might be well respected but he's not had the best of track records with his movies. Other than Hellraiser and Candyman the horror legend has struggled to reach greatness, so this could be why he's decided to work on a video game. Jericho sees Barker collaborating with Mercury Steam on a horror FPS, which was promised to be sickening, bloody and scary. Sadly it falls a little short on all three.

Clive Barker's Jericho

Gameguru Mania

  • Excerpt: I'm a fan of Clive Barker for a long time. I've read almost all his books. Recently, Barker took some time off from writing to work on a new game. He teamed up with publisher Codemasters and developer Mercury Steam (Scrapland makers) to deliver Clive Barker's Jericho - a supernatural horror-themed squad based first person shooter. Story-wise, Jericho is an original concept by Clive Barker.

Jericho (PC)

Crispy Gamer

  • Excerpt: Sorry, PC gaming addicts: If you're busy biding your weeks waiting anxiously for Unreal Tournament III, don't expect rival first-person splat-'em-up Jericho to ease the burden in the meantime. There's nothing particularly egregious about this shock-horror epic, which scores with its thrilling sense of momentum and sick, S & M-style aesthetic.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: I love Clive Barker. I like Codemasters. What on earth happened to result in this game being so painfully average??? In fact, it's probably worse than average with the current high quality games available on the PC and 360. Not even for hardened horror fans, like myself.

Jericho

19 November 2007
  • Excerpt: Horror author Clive Barker last lent his name and narrative talent to a video game six years ago. The PC-only release, Clive Barker's Undying, was notably spooky in its delivery, if a bit derivative in gameplay. Recently, Barker took some time off from writing (and from an ongoing slap-fight with film critic Roger Ebert) to work on a new game.

  • Excerpt: The heavily-hyped horror game by Clive Barker of Hellraiser fame delivers in some ways… and fails in a few too many others.
  • Pros: • Innovative squad system and powers make for a good way to mix up the action., • The story is legitimately neat, definitely good Clive Barker stuff and full of symbolism.
  • Cons: • The squad system is also the game’s major let-down; read below., • The enemy AI consists almost entirely of ‘run at the player.’, • Occasionally, visuals are outright bland.
