I only just played Jericho for the first time a few weeks ago. I would not call it great, and I wont call it bad, it had his moments, but towards the end it made me think of most Stephen King novels, where some of the most loved characters always had to die. 

Must say, I did enjoy playing it.

I thought Jericho was quite the shlt in a good sense.

So why the hell developers keep putting quicktime events in games? Have to wonder about that, because everybody hates them.

....seriously ....how old is this guy? cause he kinda acts like 13 years old....I know it's offensive, but I was embarrassed to sit through this video.  On side note, I take this game over Crysis, CoD and all other generic AAA games.

They could just remake Undying and it would be 10million times better than this crappy game!!!

So some other game suggestions include Wonde Boy III: Monster Lair [1988] and Cybernator [1992].

I didn't think the game was all that terrible. It had some clever game mechanics with moving to different squadmates bodies, etc. The gameplay and the story doesn pick up well after the first hour or two, but it is a slugfest to get there. Considering this came from the same writer that gave us the excellent UNDYING, a pity really. It could have been a lot better.

bit disappointed to see that Danny wasn't here , don't get me wrong I love Feedbacula with johnny but I tune into this program to watch DANNY play and tell us about a game.  Maybe next time he's away just don't do the show and leave everyone else to concentrate on the programs they do ...

The game maybe flawed bit much, but once get the hang of it (and pass the first chapter ofc)  you get to like and enjoy the game-play and story. Its presentation was terrible and the reason why most hated it.

LOL really? My brother bought an used Xbox with a bunch of games a couple of years ago and this was one of the gems buried in the pile. I've managed to stand a whole hour of this torture, enough to taint my gamescore with an achievement from this piece of crap =/

Didn't this come out in 2007ish? If so, I played it and it was total shit.

I was really excited for this game before it came out because I loved Undying but man what a pile of shit.

Sorry Johnny, did you say something? I was to distracted by the link for '20 hot pictures of Florida Cheerleaders' ;)

Johnny apparently picks games at random rather than playing something actually interesting.

Johnny, whilst rifle-butting your squadmates and giggling like a 7 year old may be amusing from your point of view, it makes for benign and boring viewing from a viewers point of view.

What a terrible video supplement!? This guy apparently gets paid for....doing nothing by the looks of it?! It's a funny old world. Last time I watch this channel

Johnny, you just played an hour of two of this game for this show and I don't know anything about it. When was it released? What's the story? What innovations did the game bring to the industry? You have to make it interesting, and that's why Danny is so popular with this show, because he's not only entertaining, he's also a really good reporter. Just bashing people around or swearing is lame. Give is the info, otherwise you're just a geek on a PC.

I think he shot his teammates more than he shot the bad guys

I feel sorry for you Johnny, all I wanted to do when I played this on House of Horrors was play Chivalry. You should have heeded the warning!!

Johnny is everywhere these days! Keep up the good work man. The Johnny + Seb segments are the best though. Much love for Danny too of course. Also....Chicken Fire!

i would love to see how johnny plays SLENDERMAN - THE ARRIVAL :D

Wow, he didn't even start the game. The first part is just the prologue and getting controls down. Honestly, I never want to see this guy sub in for Danny again, please. All he did was hit and shoot his teammates during the whole beginning of the game...That said I actually loved this game and beat it two times because my wife was interested in the story. Unique ending too. I highly recommend it.

@joe_chebs Don't give up just yet, Danny is the real man who runs this show unfortunatelly he's been a little more absent than usual these days. I don't get why Johnny gets so much praise from some, I just don't find him funny at all.

@genjuroT   Johnny is all about the humour, he's more like a comedian than a journalist.  The overall focus of the UK GS staff seems to be much more humour, but yeah in some cases Johnny's all humour approach can be too much.

@hystavito it isn't about his humor, unless you consider running around riflebutting teammates to be humorous. And shooting teammates in the ass is supposedly humorous too.

@hystavito @genjuroT Ugh... I agree! Please use Seb, Cam, Martin or Sarah as Danny's temp. replacement... this is horrid

@_Judas_ @hystavito @genjuroT  Agreed. Wouldn't mind if it was actually funny, but the whole 'chicken fire' thing was just juvenile and and got old real fast. That and shooting/punching his team mates - once or twice was amusing, but doing over and over and over and giggling like an adolescent idiot = boring and irritating.
