Clive Barker’s Jericho

playmagazine

  • Conclusion: Jericho uses Mercury Steam’s proprietary engine and it’s obviously powerful technology, demonstrating all the key effects one expects in a mainstream FPS in 2007. If you want to see the power of your next-gen console, from about midway through the game and onward the texture detail and the quality of environment lighting—really, the artwork in general—suddenly ramps up several quality notches.

Clive Barker's Jericho Review

VideoGamer.com
15 October 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

  • Excerpt: Ahh, Clive Barker's Jericho . I wanted so badly to love this game, I really did. Alas, it just did not happen. When I first popped it in and the cut scenes explaining the story began, I was intrigued. The game begins amidst the turmoil of a beautiful but unexplainable sandstorm in the Middle East in the city of Al Khali, somewhere near the cradle of civilization.

Jericho (PS3)

Crispy Gamer
17 February 2008
  • Excerpt: PlayStation 3 owners whose spirits were buoyed by unexpected successes like Codemasters' DiRT are going to be pleased, but less than ecstatic, with the publisher's latest, Jericho. Not that the furious first-person blaster's a bad game per se, or a particularly terrifying one, either (kind of surprising on both counts, considering Hellraiser creator and horror, fantasy and young adult book author Clive Barker's involvement).

  • 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: Clive Barker is best known for his twisted and visceral depictions of hellish evil, be it in books or movies. So why should we expect anything different from his video game?

  • Excerpt: Fire it up and let the game play itself like a movie trailer and Jericho looks spectacular, inviting even, a supernatural action extravaganza that only the Hellraisermilker could deliver. Then you press start. Then you get sad. Or Mad.

  • Conclusion: Clive Barker's Jericho should have been better than it turned out to be. All of the pieces were there to make a successful and compelling first-person shooter but somewhere along the line it fell apart. It's quite glaring exactly what components work for this title and what ones don't so in the end I suppose it was just a matter of developmental time.
