  • 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.

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Clive Barker's Jericho

ActionTrip
30 October 2007
  • Conclusion: With the upcoming flood of titles like Crysis and Mass Effect, there is a very good chance that Jericho will simply remain overlooked and forgotten.
  • Pros: Squad-based combat, action can get intense, some of the twisted shit by Clive Barker, musical score;
  • Cons: Repetitive and tedious level design, repetitiveness in the game design in general, bland environments, tacky story moments, a few path finding issues with your teammates.
