Played the demo, wasn't impressed. Things I didn't like was having to hit the scope twice to get back to normal, very annoying. Mouse sensitivity even on low was still too fast for me in the demo (just like in the Stranglehold demo). I didn't like the effect of the characters rocking back and forth when they were standing still. Gave the game kind of a childish look. Voice acting was lame. The button crap turned me off bad. I didn't mind it in Legend and Anniversary but in this one it was overdone and awkward (to me anyway). This game seemed to me to be more geared towards 15 year olds instead of adults (it's the way it felt to me).

I'm going to pass on this one.

I wasn't turned on by the arrow sh*t either like many others here but the graphics, gameplay and sounds have convinced me to pro-order the game. Picking it up tomorrow.

Looking forward to it. I'm sure it won't be a ground breaking game but enough to pass the time until the other AAA titles hit the stores.

Started the official full game today. I'll have screens later. It runs like a dream with everything on. No hitching.

Early advice; place your shots don't spray and pray.

Full game runs great. Demo didn't run nearly as good for me either. I just did a run with fraps 59 and about 48-53 when firefights started. Not bad.

People are waaaay too liberal when rating games they happen to like. I have never seen a 10. That would be flawless. As far as "Jericho" goes right now I'd give it a 7 myself. That may lower if the game ends poorly or gets weak towards the close. I see it as a slightly above average game. It is fun, I am enjoying it, and I'm glad I got it.

I like the story, the grit, the gore, the bizarre characters and changing between them to use their abilities when I feel like using another style, or it's essential to the situation at hand. I don't mind the occasional button mashing sequences. They didn't go crazy with them so they add flavor. I like when you use them to escape from the grasp of creatures and beat the snot out of them in the process. It feels good to actively and progressively beat the crap out of something that grabs hold of you with evil intent.

I can't think of a single game I've ever played that rates a 9. I'd give a few 8.5s though.

Games, like music and movies are art, so I am not surprised honest reviews vary in their rating because it depends on the taste of the person consuming the work.

I could understand someone that didn't care for FPS, gore, or the odd characters not liking the game. If I were more indifferent to the dark elements in the game I'd probably rate it a 6 or 6.5, and since it suits my tastes well it gets bumped to a 7.

From me a 5 rating means dead on average, not bad not good, passable. Terrible, or keep your money, would be 3 and below.

BTW I will be dropping screens in Doc's thread as I go along.
