Do you have the gamestop exclusive collectors edition?? If so could you describe what is included with it, because neither EB or Gamestops website offer a description of what is included in the collectors edition. Or could anyone else who may have this give a description? Also would love to know what kind of case it comes in? The pic on the website kinda looks like a metal tin case, but cant tell for sure.

Thanks in advance.

the 360 special edition is limited 2 us, uk and australia i believe. I've been having one hell of a time trying to get one here in canada. I can find a bunch of pal copies to import but that really doesnt help me.

To help answer your question Blair i'll first direct you to metacritic. http://www.metacritic.com/games/platforms/xbox360/clivebarkersjericho
Thats just a guideline but really its a solid shooter but not long enough and all there is the story mode. Thats about it, not reall worth your money, the special edition EVEN less.
And it isnt scary in the slightest.

If you enjoy Clive Barkers books and art this game is amazing. Jericho is as good as Clive Barkers Undying for PC. The game has its flaws, and bad A.I., but such a compelling story! Atleast rent it!

Rent, I finished it in about 7 hours on the hardest setting. I even got all the 'beat the level without dieing on hard' achievements. I just gotta get the weapon achievements now.

Gears of War is a walk in the park compared to any game. Including Shrek the Third's amazingly shotty camera. This game is worth getting.

I think the game is incredible, but I have a soft spot for story-based FPSes, particularly ones where there isn't some garbage tacked on multiplayer. I'm also a huge Clive Barker fan, which probably helps a lot.

I'd say it suffers a bit in the graphical department, mainly because most of the areas seem to be dark caves and old buildings, where you don't really get a lot of eye candy (the flashlight doesn't really light up squat, so you can't see the detail in things), and the game is also kinda short - which seems to be a plague on this sort of title (I'm glaring at you, Bioshock and Condemned) - but it's still longer than, say, Halo or Gears.

On the plus side, the sound effects and V.A. are pretty good, and there's some amusing squad interplay; the story is well done and has the distinctive Clive Barker touch to it. The weapon variety and psi powers are different enough for each character to make it worth your time to learn how they all work and make sure that no one feels useless.

Overall input on whether to rent or buy? Depends on if you're the sort of person who will play a game they like lots of times just for the story and the gameplay. If you are, go ahead and buy it. If you tend to just play things once and then forget them (or play them until you have the achievements and then forget them), then just rent it; you'll get most of the points in a single playthrough, then can repeat a couple levels to grab the rest, and it won't take more than a couple days of dedicated playing.

This is all so true, condemned was pure class as was bioshock but i just love this game, but shorter the better, meaning quicker achievements : )

Did anyone else feel that the big loading screens that appeared kinda broke the action up a bit too much, I would have rather seen some cutscene or just in game movie of the team moving to the new position, rather than just appearing at the start of a level.

I just found it hard to get into the story when there were these big pauses for a new level to load, I think it was poorly handed and not the right direction to go. I know it may seem a minor gripe, but it kinda detaches you when a big loading screen appears lol.

Just my opinion though. Im having a blast with the game, maybe a co-op multiplayer wudda been nice but a well.

I didn't really mind the load screens in terms of their length; I've seen worse. What did get me about them, though, was that the game was usually finished loading long before the typewriter had finished clacking out whatever intro text there was. If there'd been a way to speed that up without jumping into the next level, that might have been a bit better.

As for transitionals, I didn't think those were all that glaring; most of the time you start almost right where the last level ended, and the one major time I recall (right after getting into the Templar's church), there WAS a cut scene between walking in the door and starting the action. *shrug* Might just be me. I often seem to have a much higher tolerance for these things than others, for whatever reason.

I wouldn't buy it I beat it in like 2-3 days. Its fun but really short with no online play so after you beat it theres no point of playing anymore. You should rent it

Honestly, rent it. The game is a 10 hour 1000/1000. While it is fun, their is zero replayability and you be just be disappointed once you finish. Seems like so much more could have been done with it.

Still a fun game worth the rental though.
