Clive Barker’s Jericho: First Impression

Well, I finally got Jericho. And seeing as how I haven’t posted here in a while, I figured I’d give you my first impressions.

To be honest, I’m a bit disappointed. The storyline’s amazing, and really pulls you in (well done Mr. Barker). However, the graphics and gameplay leave a bit to be desired. It’s wonderfully dark, and the creatures are exquisitely gory, but everything’s just a bit too…bland. It could have done with a bit more colour, and a little more light. gameplay wise it’s a bit simple, a very basic run and gun shooter, although the teams’ special powers do make it just that bit more interesting. Jumping from team mate to team mate really is fun, and I’ve found Cole (the reality hacker) to be my personal favourite (nothing beats slowing down time).

I’ll let you know more as time goes by, it could just take a while.
