A great game. The only thing I didn't like was the Non-ending. Would have liked to see an epic ending. Maybe of the firstborn finally being released. Ghost bullet is the best weapon ever.

I picked this up at that Best Buy sale today for only $10. I'm planning on getting 1000 on this because it's pretty fun.

As we are hoping, the non-ending, leads up to the second game.

I just finished the game, and I actually really enjoyed the last fight (mainly because of what happened just before it) and i'm glad theres a sequel confirmed. I picked the game up about a week ago, £10 for the steelbook edition and while I wasn't expecting much I realised what an awesome game it actually is.

One thing I did find though is that I didn't really enjoy the sections where you are fighting by yourself. The team aspect really makes the game what it is.

I completely agree, I picked this up for $10 at the BB sale, they had like 10 or 15 copies of this game! Anyways, I started playing it and couldn't stop, I just got the last achievement I need in it (250 melee kills). I like how for every achievement you unlock, it unlocks something within the game, so the achievements aren't only just numbers. I do highly recommend it. I don't think multiplayer would be good in this game as it was a bit slow paced, but co-op would have been excellent! I'm selling this game soon, despite how good it is I have 1000 in it and even going through it a second time wasn't as fun as other games I've gone through multiple times. Also, co-op or some downloadable content would make me keep this game. The game unfortunately is too old and unpopular for any DLC, but we can always hope in Jericho 2! I for one will deffinately pick up the sequel!

This game deserves at least an 8 out of 10! Many games I play with low reviews like 4's 5's or 6's, just aren't good. For example, Kane and Lynch, it got low reviews but they were true. The guy at GameSpot got fired for his brutal, yet spot on review of it! Some people did like it don't get me wrong, but I for one didn't. This is one of the few games I've played that got low reviews and ended up being amazing! My only complaint was that at times the game was too quiet. The dark, nasty backgrounds really deserve to have some dark guitar or metal played with them.

Okay I've had the game out for a few weeks now (from Gamefly) and I have to say I can understand how someone wouldn't like this game. I mean yes it's pretty innovative with the ability to swap between different characters with different powers and shooting styles.... however the game just gets a little repetetive and it seems like most of the time you've traversing passageways and waiting for a batch of half-dead guys running at you, and the process repeats through most of the game. I just feel like too much time is spend reviving people and it takes from the action and it can get fucking annoying. Sometimes you just die out of the blue from some random blast or who knows what.

So yes, the game has it's flaws. I would say it's a decent game but nothing spectacular. Oh and about the graphics...Sure it has nice character models but scenery is either hit or miss. Movement animations are very robotic and if you've played Oblivion then you know what to expect. The voice acting seemed to be much more comical than serious and it's pretty questionable sometimes (just my opinion).

Anyway I think a lot of you are giving this game praise simply because it got weak reviews and you want to counter what the reviews said to get attention or something. I mean yeah it does a few new things but it doesn't execute what it's trying to do as good as if could have. Then again the game isn't that bad.

I agree.
Took a break from playing Sacred 2 today, (can get a bit repetative) and picked this out, and what was mainly for achievements today has left me actually really enjoying it. (Just going back to do the 250 melle kills and that's 1000 on that one).

a friend scoffed at me for buying it and i knew for a fact he hadn`t played it and told him not to judge things he had no basis for an opinion on...he kept commenting on how crap it was supposed to be according to reviews he`d read I said i disagreed...he played it really liked it and was very embarrassed. I think the weapons/abilities are fantastic, gameplay is solid but like the guy who started the thread i think the level design and enemies get a little repetitive however It`s a game i`m really pleased i own. I got it for a measly £8.99 and it was the tin version too brand new and sealed!.
Like a previous poster I found the ending a little dissapointing...didn`t want anything epic just some kind of ending really...i mean it doesn`t even really tell you anything you`re just left hanging.....maybe a sequel will emerge, I hope so....it`d be a good game to make a sequel to....

Based on the reviews here and the possibility of an easy 1000 I have this coming from GameFly. Looking forward to it.

Sorry, but I can think of several reasons why this game is average:


- exploding cultists. Just who exactly thought they were a good idea?
- clichéd characters
- boring, cramped level design
- you spend more time reviving teammates than fighting
- manages to make 5 time eras look exactly the same
- repetitive enemies
- the ending
- not scary and no atmosphere
- did I mention the exploding cultists?


It's not terrible and does have it's moments, but I'd never give it more than 6

I'll agree, the exploding cultists were extremely annoying and should have been excluded. How were the characters cliche? Name one game that had all of these types of particular characters. I didn't feel cramped at all running through the level. The tight corridors and enemies popping out from anywhere was a treat.

The reviving teammate was quite annoying...you have a point there. As for the five eras being and looking exactly the same, it IS taking place at the exact same area, but in different time eras. The layout should be around the same...or at least I would hope.

The ending...was complete and utter shit. Enough said. This was an excellent game up until the ending. All the mechanics you would need in a game with no added extras. Just right imo.

Borrowed this from a friend yesterday, started playing today and finished about half the game. I think it's a good game, neither brilliant or crap. There are some things that bothers me though. Like the healing, why the f should the other ones die from one shot when I seem to be taking alot of them. Spent most of my time healing instead of killing. Then I think the characters are to different. Black is great with her sniper/grenade launcher, Delgado I like alot, but the other ones are useless. Church primary weapon is shit, and her sword is way to slow and unbalanced. Jones doesn't have anything good, Rawlings guns are ok but not so accurate or effective. And whats up with Cole? Her abilities doesn't work for nothing, and her gun is way to ineffective.

But, enough complaining, I DO think that it is a good game, it just has his flaws and issues. And if there's a second one coming, great.

WOW I loved the game. It had it's flaws (exploding cultists) but the atmosphere was just incredible. As for the ending i was amazed by it, this could just be me being wierd but when you came out of the water I was like "Nooo what happens now, Why wont you tell me" but i love it when that happens. The unknown is great.

I just picked this up from GameStop tonight for $8, great price IMO. I haven't played it yet, I hope the game is as good as I've been reading. I give an opinion soon enough.

Easy 1k, main reason for me to play it. Didn't expect anything, and wasn't dissapointed.

Ok, I got it for €9, and with the cheats enabled it was actually quite enjoyable. But there's no way I would have touched this game if cheats had disabled achievements.

I just got done with this game a few days ago and i will say that it is a great game. I thought it had one of the most original storylines and cast of characters ive seen. The only downside to the game is that its to short. Plus its an extremely easy 1000 gp.

Just finished the game myself and I loved it. Just wish it was longer. I liked the nice dark evilness of the areas you were going through. Wish the mobs had the sneakiness of those in Bioshock where you would walk up a passage and turn around and something was standing there looking at you.

Exploding cultists were only a problem to me until I figured out to just pop all of the pustules and they go boom by themselves.
Didn't think the levels were that cramped. A bit too linear but not cramped.
I played it first time on hard and only revived team members maybe 5 times in all and died only like twice at the beginning before I figured out how to kill the buggers.
The ending wasn't that bad to me. I understood it since the battle was very much over by the time you swam away. It wasn't no where near as bad as say...Fable 2's anticlimatic ending.

I also, bought this game not expecting much and loved the game. The only thing that I didn't like was the ending, which was open ended. Oh well. Room for a sequel. But it really was good. I thoroughly enjoyed and recommended it to my boss and he got it and also loved it too. My favorite thing about the game was the atmosphere. Especially the stage in Rome. So awesome.....

Yeah I have to agree this game is seriously underrated. Yes there are a few little niggles (like any game) but to see the reviews it has received it is totally unjustified.

When you look at the scores the reviewers gave it, it is quite clear to me how it scored so low. There is no onine / co-op mode and I love the game for that all the more.

The last thing we need is another Gears / Halo / COD. We have too many games with online modes tagged on and online achievements which are an instant turn-off. Then there is the inevitable lobby full of 12 year old special needs cases doing nothing but swear over and over again because mommy can't hear them, or just basically abusing everyone. I can live without that crap, long may Jericho remain the shining light of an example to what a real game should be like.
