Still creepy and a great game

Summary: I just got an Xbox 360 this year so until now I've only played Condemned 2, on PS3. I was excited to play the original Condemned and wasn't let down at all. The atmosphere is overall dark and the creepiness just keeps building as the game goes on. The controls are decent and the graphics are good. I think it even holds up well compared to anything since then as far as horror and shock value. It is probably a bit easier than Condemned 2 but that doesn't bug me.
Summary: THIS IS ONE OF EARLIEST XBOX 360 GAMES AND I CAN REMEMBER AND IT ALWAYS WAS ON MY FAVORITES AND I HAVE BEAT IT ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS BUT I THINK I LOST THE GAME DURING A MOVE MANY YEARS AGO, BUT I AM GLAD TO HAVE IT BACK IN MY COLLECTION, I LOVE THE LEVELS, I LOVE THE COMBAT AND I LOVE THE OVERALL ATMOSPHERE, BUY THIS GAME IT IS WORTH IT!
Summary: I like how the game can be boiled down to putting homeless junkies in their place. Remember this combo....taze 'em and kick 'em while they're on the ground. So satisfying. I feel like Bruce Willis when I play this game. The story is trippy as hell and is the best game I played in while.
Without a Doubt, One of the Most Scary and Entertaining Games Ever

Summary: Condemned: Criminal Origins is a first person survival horror shooter, and it is truly a horrifying game, for all the right reasons. It's creepy atmosphere and scares are all derived, for the most part, from suspense and story telling, not constant jump scares which are the norm for most horror games and movies. Back when it came out, it was an under appreciated gem, and it's a shame that it never got the mainstream popularity it deserved.
Dark, dirty, mysterious, unsettling, and incredibly well done

Summary: Condemned separates itself from today's tired FPS market by taking advantage of innovation seen first in games like Chronicles Of Riddick. Hand-to-hand combat is the order of the day and that's the way this game plays from start to finish. Whilst it's true the game does introducing projectile weapons, they're simply a "bonus" where you don't have to get too up close and personal to devour the enraged bums.
Summary: Sucks it took me this long from 05 to play this game. I have been wanting to play it since then just havent gotten around to buying it. Picked this up for 10 bucks and wow it was fun def check it out if u want to be creeped out with a good story and gameplay is sick
Summary: When I began playing Condmend, C.O. I wondered one thing: what in the world happened to this town? I've heard of style and I've heard to rockstaring a world, but this place was something else. It was like a nightmare had mixed with the show Oz and had spilled out on the screen, making a mixed bag of atmosphere and a world where squalor rules.
Conclusion: Although this game was one of the first to come out on xbox 360 it is really scary and you will have to go to sleep with the light on! Condemned seems a bit complicated and not fun at the start. but when you really go through you realise that this game is really fun, scary, and fantastic! I would recomend renting if your new to the horror/crime genre but if your a huge fan then you might want to buy!
