Summary: Damn it. Just when I thought I was playing an actual honest-to-goodness "survival horror" game that didn't involves zombies or mutants, CCO turns into a monotonous, limited FPS. It's creepy as all hell with its genuine look and feel. It has an engaging story with some good voice-over work.
Summary: I have to tip my hat to the creators of Condemned Criminal Origins for attempting something new from the shooter dominant genre of first person gaming. Being that this game was made in 2006, it certainly holds up very well. Both graphically and game play wise.
Summary: Just like F.E.A.R the novelty of this game wears off really fast, except it's even more confusing than F.E.A.R ever was. For 3/4s of the game I couldn't understand what was wrong with the entire town. Why where they all beating each other to a pulp?
Summary: Since every other game pretty much gives a recap of the entire premise of the game, i'll keep this short. Pretty fun. While the game will be fun, exciting, (and possibly scary for some), I found the gameplay to slowly go downhill as you went further, since you seem to be doing the same thing...
Conclusion: a very good game that is different from most first person games. this is one of them games that aims to frighten you and does this well. a bad thing about this game is that it is very short.
Summary: Condemned is the first thriller game on the 360, created by the folks at Monolith, who are responsible for the hit F.E.A.R. on the PC. Unfortunately, this game didn't get the attention it deserves at launch due to the incredible amounts of hype surrounding Perfect Dark Zero.
Something a bit different, but the sequel is better

Summary: I liked the look of this game when I first played the downloaded demo on the XBox. Its more than just a FPS, the investigating element of the game makes it a lot more interesting. I also enjoy the bit where you can finish off one of the baddies with one of the four kill moves when they are stunned.
