Excerpt: There are a ton of things I could say in this world and probably the next. I think there are about a hundred words I could use to describe Clive Barker's Jericho as an experience, but I think of all of them, the one that just says it all about the game is "bittersweet.

Excerpt: Name: Clive Barker's Jericho Genre: First Person Shooter Platform: Xbox 360, PS3, PC (Reviewed on Xbox 360) I wanted Clive Barker’s Jericho to rock so much. Clive is a brilliant horror writer and a defender of video games as art.
Summary: Clive Barker’s Jericho deals with the mysterious reappearance of a lost city in a remote desert. When a form of evil that goes right back to the dawn of days resurfaces from there, a Special Forces squad, trained in both conventional warfare and the arcane arts, is sent in.
Conclusion: Clive Barker’s Jericho isn’t a bad game. It’s tried something new with the squad-based combat system with a twist and put it in a really good setting. It’s just a shame the combat, AI and level design ruin any atmosphere the game manages to create, and the innovations don’t work the way they should.
Pros: Nice graphics, Great atmosphere, Nice weapons and abilities to play with, Loads of gore and gratuitous swearing!
Cons: Linear level design, Very basic squad AI, The voice acting gets old quickly, No co-op
