Condemned: Criminal Origins [360]

4 August 2008

Review by Leavell Sampson

I had not heard of Condemned until the mini hype was made for Condemned 2. I saw it at Tradestation and decided, why the hell not? At a glance, the graphics are a little weak, but I have seen worse. The games makes up for it with the dark and involved storyline it follows.

I’ve always loved horror movies and was fooled into thinking this was a horror game, it’s an investigative thriller about a FBI agent who is framed for killing two other cops while on a hunt for a serial killer. Obviously, knowing that you are framed kinda gets you thinking that this is a carbon copy from a movie, and it does feel so. However, all the twist and turns in the plot and a well written script makes this game shine. Coming to the end your eyes open and you really get lost in your own head because it really does screw with your mind. Now I don’t want to give any spoilers for the game, but the end is really awesome, at least I think so.
