Summary: This game starts out well enough, the environments are creepy and make you nervous. The enemies, however, are not very scary and the combat is frustrating. The game has guns in it, but the focus is on melee combat, which would have been fine, but the melee combat itself hinges on a COMPLETELY unreliable block mechanism.
Conclusion: Not usually a fan of these games, but gave it a go after downloading the demo. Graphics, sound and gameplay are very good, but the gameplay gets very samey after the first chapter. Would have been very dissapointed if i had bought this as I completed it in 2 days. Worth renting, but don't expect too much...
Summary: Well, based on all the recommendation I got this one, and frankly, after three hours its boring as hell.Endlessly You wander through static, lifeless buildings, beeing attacked by rather strange enemies, using an unforgiving combat system and sometimes detective tools. The biggest complant I would have that this is more indoor than even Doom 3, there is no exploration, no other environments, just indoor elvel after indoor level after indoor level.Visit this building,...
Excerpt: In Condemned you play as a cop who ends up framed for murder by a serial killer he has been investigating. There is more to this than meets the eye, as various other characters play games with the protagonist, and something is seriously wrong with the street people, and it is spreading. There are some interesting elements in the game and the atmosphere is leadenly oppressive, which seems to be the point.
Summary: Sorry to go against the flow, but I followed the reviews of this game on Amazon and thought, - I like Resident Evil, so I should love this - WRONG ! It is scary and dark, and it does make you jump on the odd occasion, but the fun ends there. The problems I have with this game are the maze type level which are linear and dull. On several occasions you can go from one auto save point to the next - without doing anything other than moving.
Summary: ok i get it its a launch title and sure it will sell well though borrow it don't play it. i borrowed it from a mate and can luckily give it back. the graphics are good are a good start for the 360. the things that let it down are its control system. it seemed all the opponents in the game were black belts in martial arts while the lead character had block hit block hit and thats it.
Summary: i think the reviews for this game are seriously overrated. ok take into consideration it is an early 360 title. that doesnt save it. it is one of the most depressing games ever. i dont mean that good way. i got about half way through the game. alot of the time your fondling in the dark for switches and weapons. oh and dont get me on to the weapons limited or what and the enemies obviously have nightvision too.
Summary: es un juego que no esta mal sabe transmitir bien la paranoia que hay en el ambiente,los graficos son de nueva generacion eso si si juegas en un televisor de hd sino tampoco ves un gran salto generacional en este juego.en el titulo pongo condenado al fracaso el motivo de decir esto es,que,aunque es un buen juego no innova en nada si da miedo pero si eres como yo que te gustan los juegos de miedo,esto,ya lo has visto antes.Realmente este es un titulo que sin estar mal...
