Summary: I've read some really good reviews for this game.... supposed to be a fun melee-based horror game. I believe I picked it up for maybe 5-8 bucks a few months ago..... I really tried to focus on all of the "fun elements" that I had read about. I will grant that the atmosphere was kinda creepy. Not Dead Space "Gee Willikers I need to change pants" scary, but creepy nonetheless.
Summary: The game was okay. I thought it would have been more fun. regardless it was not terrible and the achievements were very easy to get so I suppose that is a plus. Overall it was not terrible but was not at all my favorite either.
Summary: Chase a serial killer, find clues, whomp some bad guys with a lead pipe. And pick up any dead birds or pieces of metal along the way... CONDEMNED is fine for an older xbox title, and can be bought for cheap. It quickly shows its age, though. Like many older FPS, you follow a distinct path in abandoned locales. The actual level designs are decent enough, and offer a good variety of settings.
Summary: The concept of this game is interesting and it can be quite scary at times. I like the story line and plot but it leaves much to be desired. The weapons are limited and it leaves you not knowing what to do at times.
Summary: I'm just making this review to warn you about this game repetitve gameplay and just not fun. Very closeminded story line and you can see what the ending will be like at around the first level. I don't want to sound too anoying so i'll stop here but this game is seriously not even worth the five bucks that gamestop is selling it for.
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. There are things this game does very well, and things that may rub you the wrong way. I will detail both what I feel are the strengths and weaknesses of this title later.
Summary: could have been a good game, but too much time is wasted just running up & down corriders with nothing in them. maybe condemed 2 is better? I can never figure out why video game companies spend so much time and money on games that are just Boring
Summary: It's pretty much destiny that video games don't translate well to movies or television. Apparently the same is true in reverse. Condemned has a fantastic story. The voice acting is spot on. This would have made a great movie or television miniseries. Unfortunately, the gameplay kind of stinks. The only thing that kep me going was the engrossing story. The annoying fighting interface was sad. The "investigative" tools and situations felt forced and contrived.
