We unlock the gates of Hell and the results are gross

For

  • albeit gross
  • Great body-hopping bits
  • More-than-competent shooter

Against

  • The ending blows
  • Doesn't do anything new for shooters
  • Monsters know what body we're in

Diehards will know this is not Barker%26rsquo;s first foray into pixels and polygons, he%26rsquo;s already dabbled in the genre with the PC adventure, Clive Barker%26rsquo;s Undying and the oft-talked about among horrorites, Demonik that was once being tinkered with by the same crew behind BloodRayne (eek!) before being canned. Now the Scouse scarer has teamed up with Codemasters for this, Jericho, a sort of sickly supernatural %26ldquo;middle finger%26rdquo; to Tom Clancy%26rsquo;s Rainbow Six shooters slathered nicely with his own disgustingly unique brand of gore, scares and unholy parables.
