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 issues and a story that will leave you raging.
Summary: Mechanics are acceptable, the plot (sadly as it comes from clive barker) sounds more like the plot for a generic TV show than a game and well, I suppose 6 years after the fact it's starting to look a little creaky.
Summary: I heard about thus game some time ago but never got around to playing it, then one day I was browsing the psn store for something fun to pass the time during a gaming new release lull when suddenly the name of this game popped into my head, so searched for it there but it wasn't om there.
Summary: All the pc games remember CLive BArkers Undying, it was an amazing piece of art and game. Mabey one of the best PC horror games every produced. But Jericho is disappointment. Story of the game feels too basic and the gameplay is all about running and shooting enemies. Sometimes the gameplay is interesting but there is not much depth into the fights and it gets boring after a while. Boss fights are fun but theu arent as challenging as they should be.
Summary: A totally boring FPS that really does not belong in the modern age. Had it come out 10 years earlier, it might have been forgivable. On the positive it does have some decent visuals and the concept behind it is perhaps its only saving grace. Had it not been for Clive Barker's name attached I doubt it would have gotten any recognition at all. Overall: It's crap.
