Clive Barker's Jericho is a first person shooter survival horror video game with author Clive Barker providing the premise of the storyline. The game was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 in 2007.
In Germany, the game was originally Refused Classification by the USK due to high-impact violence, until the BPjM appealed and overturned the decision citing that the game is not objectionable enough to be put on the index of media harmful to young persons, and thus was eventually given a KJ rating. Although despite the refusal before the appeal, the PC version of the game was still released in certain retail stores in Germany, while the console versions were not due to the major console manufacturers' strict policies towards Unrated/RC-classified games. The PC version was however later recalled due to the inclusion of the print-ad for Turning Point: Fall of Liberty, on which a swastika was shown, which is illegal in Germany under section 86b.
Why it sucks
- Very linear gameplay.
- Poor teammate AI.
- Convoluted plot with an infamously abrupt ending which leaves many questions unanswered. This happened because, apparently, the game was planned to have a sequel since development, but said sequel is now in development hell.
- The game isn't very terrifying and lacks genuine scares.
- Levels are very linear and "claustrophobic".
- Because of the poor teammate AI, this die often and require tons of healing, which can become a major nuisance.
- Bad camera angles at some points and locations.
- Excellent graphics.
- Awesome soundtrack.
- Good weapon variety.
- A disturbing and terrifying cast of enemies, from Undead Legionnaries to Child Crusaders.
