This press release announces that Clive Barker's Jericho should be appearing on store shelves on Friday, which we are taking as a confirmation that the paranormal shooter is gold (otherwise someone better be cranking really hard to get it finished). Here's word:

Just in time for the fright-filled holiday of the year, Codemasters today announced that its long-awaited action horror game Clive Barker's Jericho™ is now shipping and will be available from retail stores this Friday, 26th October, for the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft®, the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and Games for Windows®.

Clive Barker's Jericho is a spectacular blast from Barker's cannon of nightmares and an interactive experience that mingles the darkest elements of his creative works with an ambitious, age-spanning story for mature gamers and horror fiction enthusiasts.

Clive Barker's Jericho dispatches gamers to the Middle-Eastern city of Al-Khali, where the most ancient of evils has resurfaced; causing intense paranormal activity that has caught the eye of the military. Controlling the Jericho squad, an expert strike team skilled in both conventional and paranormal warfare, players fight their way through slices of time on a gruelling journey as they make their way toward the heart of the evil.

En route, gamers encounter the horrific armies of hellish denizens that now rule the city and corrupt everything they touch. As the squad incrementally approach the source of evil, players will have to rely less and less on traditional weapons and instead focus on the combined psychic talents of the Jericho team.

I was disapointed with the demo. Has good grpahics and effects but I was hoping for something more like undying, where there is an element of adventure and not just a high speed shooter with 10 million enemies.

Got an email from Gametap telling me it is up.. haven't checked because I use gametap almost never, yet am too lazy to cancel because of the run around you gotta go through to cancel with them.

jericho did get decent reviews. it's not either perfect, or bad (dunno why you want to say it's bad) so i think that game is either you love or hate.

Hellgate London got 73%, now that is a huge let down, jericho was never going to get 90+ realistically, Hellgate however down to a 73%, wow that is horrible.

it wasnt that great imo.

The graphics were blurry and were nothing special and the gameplay was boring.
