Clive Barker's Jericho

House Arrest - Kill Time Killing Everything

Lisa Lippard
Nov 2, 2007

Until now, when gamers thought of horror games, both the Silent Hill andResident Evil series often top the list. With the multi-platform release of Clive Barker's Jericho, those two game franchises have a worthy challenger for the title of "horror master." The difference here is that unlike Silent Hill and Resident Evil, Clive Barker's Jericho isn't a survival horror game, but a squad-based action horror game played from the first-person perspective.

"Jericho" refers to the Jericho Team, a special team of seven members trained in conventional warfare, but each squad member is also an expert in a different psychic skill to protect the government from paranormal attacks. An ancient evil has seeped into the world, and a city near "ground zero" has lost contact with everyone. The Jericho Team is sent in to find the source of evil before it takes over and completely destroys the world. Gamers must balance the skills of the squad by effectively using both the conventional weapons and the paranormal powers they each possess to effectively wipe out the teams of creatures sent out to destroy the Jericho Team.

The extremely detailed environments and chilling soundtrack do the trick of immersing gamers into the twisted world of Clive Barker's mind. Unleashing his imagination to create the horrifying creatures and the dark, gothic world they inhabit, gamers are in for a hellish ride straight into the heart of evil. Combat is wicked and treats gamers to ghoulish, blood-soaked battles in a cinematic way, without taking anything away from the fast-paced combat. Enemy A.I. is smart and will change its tactics and act independently, so there is never anytime to get into a routine of quickly picking off the enemy before moving on. It's a rollercoaster ride into a nightmarish world and the closer gamers get to the evil core, the more their paranormal skills are needed to fight and defeat the evil beasts that stand in the Jericho Team's way. Gamers have the option to give context-sensitive orders to team members or can let team members act on their own to fight and to react to enemy A.I. accordingly. Clive Barker's Jericho is thrilling, scary, and an intense trip that is a great change from the standard first-person shooter.
