Summary: I picked this up for my son years ago, and because Clive Barker's name alone I was attached to it. Now playing it seems a bit nostalgic- not as fluid or long as I would have wished, but I'm not a gamer, so I enjoy it for what it is- four characters to change during gameplay. not an endless barrage of zombies without purpose, and better storyline than the more familiar horror titles.
Summary: There is a lot to love about this game but also a lot to hate. First the things i didn´t liked: The squad members: There are just to many of them, in every battle you will go around healing them over and over instead of fighting, this was really annoying. The leveldesign: In one word: Boring (except the roman levels). The ending: Crash! Bamm! Bang! and its done...and you will be sitting There is a lot to love about this game but also a lot to hate.
Summary: I really enjoyed going through the twisted psyche of this game even if it had some gameplay and control issues. The team-play kind of sucked with me spending half the time reviving team mates and running into sections that were almost impossible (it's only fun so much having to carefully sneak snipe shots at enemies coaxed out one at a time and then running for your life).
Summary: I got this game after reading a book by Clive Barker, Coldheart Canyon. The book is by far better than the game. The game itself goes by very quick and provides little replay value. However, if you can get it for cheap or aren't concerned about cost and just looking for something to fill your time for a day or two, get it.
Summary: This game could've been so good but falls short in overall fun and appeal. I bought this game back when it was new and I had just got my PS3. Being a fan of games like the Suffering on PS2, I saw a video of this and got very excited. Afterall, it was on a then new system so it had to be good, in my mind at least. Coming from the mind of Clive Barker, the story and overall feel is very creepy and morbid. There's plenty of gore to go around.
Summary: I generally don't just love first person shooters, and I'm also not big on commanding squads, but "the play's the thing," and I loved playing this game. What made this game stand above others is (A) the ease at which you can command members of your squad and (B) all the cool special powers each member of your squad has. Sure, a FPS is an FPS, but the characters are distinctive, the controls are good and... well, it's just a heck of a lot of fun to play.
Summary: Jericho is one of those games that was quite painful to play through for me, due in large part to the vast amount of wasted potential. Simply put, this game easily possessed all of the necessary ingredients for triple A gaming greatness. It could've been one of the greatest horror/action/supernatural shooters in existence and yet, that potential was squandered by the myriad of technical Jericho is one of those games that was quite painful to play through for me, due in...
