Jericho is a unique and intense addition to the highly competitive FPS market. While it's not the scarefest IGN imagined it would be, Clive Barker's trademark gothic touch is very much in evidence and ensures the game has a wonderfully macabre atmosphere. The character switching gameplay is fantastic too and really helps to create fast-paced shoot outs against some of the nastiest, diguesting enemies IGN have seen in a long time. Indeed, while it's not hugely innovative the character switching does add a fresh dimension to the game, which is refreshing in a genre that's become stagnant over the past few years.
Of course, Jericho isn't without its problems - there's just a bit too much repetition in the level design and the graphics, while decent most of the time, occasionally look a bit brown and bland. But there's no denying Jericho is an action-packed shooter, and one you'll have a lot of fun with if you're after a blast that'll make your blood curdle.
Overall score: 8/10
