Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

Just finished Clive Barker's Jericho tonight, on 360.

I liked it, but to be brutally honest, it's a much better idea than it is a game.

Switching back and forth between six teammates (you're an incorporeal spirit) is a great idea. I've always been in love with this switching concept, but no game has really pulled it off to my satisfaction.

Geist tried, and so did Brute Force... Jericho does better than either, but a lot of the other design aspects are lacking and it holds the game back.

I may cover it later, but i'd say it's worth $15 as a thrill-ride with a good gimmick. the aesthetics are pretty cool too, if you're into the Barker thing.
