    You know if the game says "Clive Barker" then its going to be horrifying, gory and Hellraiser-inspired. Jericho is first person shooter with AI squad at your side. You will fight minions from hell in all shapes and sizes, but your arsenal and the gritty visuals add to the intense gaming experience.

    Rule of thumb:
    Higher settings = More detail, lower frame rates
    Lower settings = Less detail, higher frame rates

    Conclusion:
    Jericho ran pretty smoothly on my GeForce 550 Ti. There were a few moments of stutter with everything on high, but you can always run it in Openbox desktop to gain some Frames Per Second.
    It is a very linear game, but has some cool sci-fi and horror elements to please any gamer.

    Good guide, this game runs good with default prefix (xp prefix) without problems

    This game was cheaper but not stay now on steam store, you can find on tf2outpost but price up considerably, on promotion on cost around 1.5us but now asking 8us minimum and if more time are passed up much more

    And if you want config file is very customizable: turn off or on other options with not appears on game, example: postprocessing effects and other things

    And thanks for mentionated videogameplay

    :)
