Clive Barker's Jericho is a survival horror, first-person shooter title for the PC. Master of Horror Clive Barker places the player in the role of any given member of a small assault team specializing in paranormal warfare and response. The player can jump between team members with ease, using the special powers of each to combat the ancient evils that dwell within the game space.
Jericho provides a visceral, FPS experience and is famous for the early use of contextual button presses during cutscenes and set-piece game play moments. The title has been criticized for featuring a somewhat bland color palette, repetitive environments, derivative game play, and uninspiring enemies. However, if the gamer can see past the blemishes, the game is at its core an entertaining and exciting horror experience. Viewed in hindsight, the game is let down by its technical limitations but remains a game that one does not necessarily want to play alone in the dark. The teammate switching mechanic is fun, especially because the powers of each team member are unique, powerful, and exciting to use. The contextual button presses are tough to see, tucked away at the side of the screen, but the game is still solid. All in all, Jericho is a solid all-around PC shooter.
