Summary: You play a drunken cop with a vandetta to pay. The plot is confusing but the game certainly has its moments where it can scare you outta your seat. I recommend playing it in a dark room at night for full effect. The doll factory is just creepy. Its worth the price you'll get it for on ebay to give it a shot.
Summary: Condemned 2 for the Xbox 360: Pros: Weapons selection Graphics CG Combo & Block moves Ability to access files/evidence many times Throwing weapons both straight ahead but also VERTICALLY! Cons: Darkness (even adjusted) Inability to skip Cutscenes Confusing Navigation points (no clear directions) No cheats Game progression was too slow Tutorial was spaced throughout entire first level, not all at once Basically you wake up in an alley, hung over.
Summary: Like the story, the combat loses its way a tad as the game moves along. By the end, you'll have been tossed into a number of situations where gunplay takes on too much significance for a game that supposedly isn't about shooting. If guns are your thing, you can even unlock a first-person shooter mode by completing the game once. Still, nothing beats the grotesque satisfaction Condemned 2 provides with its weapons of convenience.
Summary: Needs guns. I like the beating up of the npc's but I would also like to have a small projectile weapon in the beginning also. I didn't like that I had to press alot of buttons to make a move. Although this was my first game without guns so I may need to just put a little nore time in on pushing alot of buttons on the controller fast.
Summary: I bought this game because the price was very good. I would not recommend this game to a friend. The graphics were average, but it felt like I was doing the same thing over and over. I have not played it for a really long time and do plan on continuing to see what else it has to offer.
Summary: You’re drunk, you’re angry, and you’re sleeping in the streets of a city ready to tear itself apart — welcome back, Ethan Thomas. It’s been six months since the ex–FBI agent tracked down Serial Killer X through Condemned’s blend of horror and first-person gameplay — and if you’ve come to the sequel seeking answers to that spooky cliffhanger ending, you’ll get some…but nowhere near enough.
Summary: IF YOU LIKE THE ORIGINAL YOU WILL LOVE CONDEMED 2 FAST GAME PLAY GREAT WEAPONS GREAT GRAPHICS GREAT STORY GREAT GAME.DISLIKES ARE SOUND EFFECTS THAT SOUND LIKE TV STATIC,SHORT GAME NOT ENOUGH LEVELS,SOME DRawn out level boses.ALL AN ALL A GREAT GAME AND WORTH THE 20 SOMETHIN BUCKS ON EBAY.DEFINATLY WORTH THE 8-20 HOURS OF GAMEPLAY!!!
Summary: This was a good game, the only critism is that you have to shoot or hit the enemy too many times to kill them. Surely one bullet from the sniper gun would just do the job! You seem to have to hit the opponent so many times with an iron bar (or something else) but you should only have to hit 5-6 times max. Overall, a good game and yes would definately play again, even if I get killed alot because the other guy has beaten me to it.
Summary: If like me you played and enjoyed the first condemned (despite it flaws) then you may have been wondering what the sequel would have in store. I loved the combat in the first game but must admit it was a bit shallow. C2 has a new combat system that emplores combos of hooks, kicks and jabs and whilst it improves the combat it has its flaws. For one thing Ethan can now defend himself with his fists.
If you're a fan of the first don't get your hopes up...

Summary: Condemned : Criminal Origins has become something of a cult classic since its release in 2005 and I for one was greedily awaiting the follow up, Bloodshot, this year. Sadly, it wasn't worth the wait. What made the original special was the tense, claustrophobic atmosphere which took it's lead from movies like Seven, Silence of the Lambs and Saw. Sure it had it's flaws.
