"Never before has hitting homeless people with pipes been so fun."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

An impressively atmospheric game that doesn't go over the top. The macabre crime scenes you inspect as agent Thomas, the world's most thick skinned detective, show some nicely gruesome screens. Unfortunately they start imitating silent hill towards the end, where running through dark, abandoned buildings and clubbing homeless people turns to clubbing strange sewer mutants and high school gremlins.

"Even now, this game is unrivaled in it's field." Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is one of the first games to genuinely scare me, a perfect combination of suspense, horror and shock.

"Great So Far"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Ive started the game and it seems great! these gang member or zombies (not sure what there supposed to be) pop out everywhere and when you play the game in the dark and one of them pops out it can really make you jump! AWESOME GAME

"Just Another Horror Game"
3 stars"

If you have played an average horror game that makes you jump once every hour then don't waste another $25 and 3 hours of your life on this game. It is a fairly cool play tho, with a lot of interactive things and a good variety of weapons. The only thing different compared to most horror games is that you are beating up real humans instead of Zombies. A fairly good play but not worth it if you have seen it all before. 3/5

Description

Condemned: Criminal Origins allows players to experience a heightened level of psychological tension as they use their instincts, forensic tools, and melee/firearms combat to track serial killers and bring them to justice. Gamers will play as Agent Thomas, an investigator in the FBI's Serial Crimes Unit (SCU), whose pursuit of relentless serial killers leads him through urban environments filled with sociopaths lurking on the periphery of humanity.

Presented in a first-person view for maximum visceral effect, this atmospheric thriller is best played with the surround-sound up and the lights off. Given the power of nextgeneration hardware, Condemned: Criminal Origins features photo-realistic backdrops, life-like physics, and highly sophisticated artificial intelligence. Weapons and ammunition are scarce, leaving the player vulnerable to a gallery of mentally deranged criminals. Careful detective work and precision reflexes are a player's primary means of survival. Inspired in part by the films of the psychological thriller sub-genre, Condemned: Criminal Origins maintains an intense, focused pace. Players can never be sure what waits around each corner.

FEATURES:

  • Next-generation lighting, mapping, and filtering techniques provide for environments of unprecedented detail and visual quality.
  • Intelligent enemies respond strategically to your offensive and defensive maneuvers.
  • High-level physics allow players to manipulate background items, which respond realistically when picked up, kicked, or bumped.
  • A tightly wound story is backed with strong character development and major plot twists.
  • Meticulously crafted 5.1 surround-sound will cue players to the location of offscreen enemies.
